They just updated with a non-specific Blu-Ray date for Jin-Roh.

What sweet and surprising news! I have this one on R2 DVD, the "Global Astroliner" piece is awesome and I absolutely adore the "Kung-Fu Love" segment!! It's my favorite piece of animation by Studio 4C, it's so cute and weird. The two 3D-CG episodes are kind of bad... but buy it for "Kung-Fu Love" if nothing else!

It's been so long since I saw these. But I do love the music. And Global Astroliner's character designs were really slick.

Wow, didn't expect this. I haven't seen the rest of the shorts, but Kung-Fu Love was fantastic. And they picked up Jin-Roh too? Awesome, that's one less thing I have to track down via third-party sellers. Very Happy

Watching Global Astroliner and Kung Fu Love just makes me wish they were movies or TV series or something...though naturally, they probably wouldn't look as good in that case.

WARNING: The anime itself has nothing to do with the type of nuts squirrels store or testicles.

Nice pick up, Kung Fu Love is one of my favorite anime shorts and probably my favorite thing Studio 4C has ever done. Global Astroline Gou wasn't bad either, the other two were quite forgettable.

Yep may have to put a label with that said warning on the DVD to make sure retailers and distributor don't end up thinking it's a porno/hentai, or somebody that idiotic think it's pornography/hentai to put it at the adult XXX section by accident.

While I'm glad that Discotek is releasing another crazy work by Studio 4°C but sadly no Mind Games.

Glad to see Mazinger Z getting release dates. All on my list.
Discotek you are the best. Wink Wink

She loves the Cream and Kung FU Love are the only ones on there worth it.

The anthologies I really want to hear being picked up are the two Genius Parties and Short Peace.

I already own the Australian Genius Party release, but getting Amazing Nuts is quite cool... Not the kind of thing that I ever expected to get licensed, but I'll happily order it Smile
