My poor wallet Sad
I hope we'll get some extras, like creditless OP/ED.

Kamen no Maid Guy is a whacked-out series, and I loved it! Thanks, Discotek!

Glad to see City Hunter & Maid Guy with dates for their physical releases, because I'll definitely be getting those, along with Govarian. As for the Three Kingdoms movie, I'll also be getting that at some point, and I hope Discotek will also do the other two movies, as well (though it looks like only the first movie ever got dubbed).

It would be interesting in this movie does well enough to prompt Discotek to try more Three Kingdoms anime, though, as it would be interesting to see how the company would try to market each one; of course, by this I mean direct adaptations of the original story. There's this early 90s movie trilogy, a couple of movie-length TV specials from the early 80s done by Shin-Ei (which apparently have been remastered in HD, due to some re-airings), the TV anime adaptation of Mitsuteru Yokoyama's magnum opus manga adaptation of the novel (also from the early 90s), Koutetsu Sangokushi from the 00s (which actually saw official streaming over at Viki for a few years), & the 2011 TV anime co-produced by Japan & China.

I am planning to buy Honey and Clover, The Great Passage (the best anime series from 2016) and City Hunter. I am not sure how much I am buying beyond the first season and a couple of the movies, but I am so glad Discotek managed to license rescue City Hunter.

On the plus side Discotek prices are very affordable.

I’m most excited about City Hunter. I own ADV’s old release of the first two seasons and I won’t be double-dipping. But I’ll definitely pick up the last two seasons when they are released. The Great Passage is also a must for me. I didn’t even know that show was licensed! Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a maybe. I also won’t double-dip on Honey and Clover since I still have Viz’s release.

Pantha: DT’s release of City Hunter is likely to have a new transfer.
