All the shows will be available with English subtitles and an English dub


Unless Ramen Fighter Miki is getting a brand new dub, then this line is a bit off. I know Media Blasters has mentioned in Twitter about the idea of possibly dubbing Miki for an eventual BD release, but nothing's been said about it actually happening.

I remember enjoying Ramen Fighter Mini way more than I thought I would. I got it as a blind buy and didn't really know anything about it, but it was a pretty fun show. Fans of Excel Saga or Ranma 1/2 should give it a chance. These other licenses are great, too. Now I can finally get around to watching Honey & Clover and The Little Prince.

Oh cool! I know the 80s Astro Boy has become a bit of a rare commodity, especially its English dub, even though the dub itself isn't good quality. Definitely excited about Little Prince, though.

I'm assuming they'll be streaming the U.S. dub of '80s Astro Boy, which is currently available on a few sites:

https://www.amazon.com/Astro-Boy/dp/B07F172Q2P
https://tubitv.com/series/4071/astro-boy

It's the Canadian dub that's rare, since it was never released on home video.

I did a double take when I saw Love Hina on there.....

I guess at this point, anything before 2010 is fair game.....It is more than a decade old now, especially with how anime is consumed these days.

I'm hoping that the 1980s Astro Boy release will finally give us the uncut first two episodes.

I want Kid Atlas dammit!

That would rock my socks as I haven't seen the Canadian dub of Astro Boy in 30 years! However, if it does appear on RetroCrush, it would have to be a separate category as it was more edited than the international dub release. The Canadian dub doesn't even have the first two episodes at all, even in a condensed format!

I used to go by a rule that anything that was old enough to be animated on cels was retro/classic/old school. But now I think I will change that to anything old enough to be 4:3 ratio.
