Quick Correction: It was later clarified that the "Mazinkaiser" mentioned is not the OVA series that ADV had previously released, but rather is just a re-release of Mazinkaiser SKL, which Media Blasters still has the rights to.

Quote:
-Would you be able to clarify which Mazinkaiser you were referring to in the interview? We're not sure if you're talking about a new Blu-Ray release for Mazinkaiser SKL, or if you've picked up the Mazinkaiser OVA that ADV once put out.

-No the one we did previously


Which does suck. I love SKL & am happy to see that it's going to be in print again, but I'd love to see a new release for the OG Mazinkaiser OVA, especially one that finally includes the movie that ADV never released.

By keeping a low profile and not biting off any more than they can chew.
Also by streaming English-language hentai when no one else would.

At least they quit their awful not working DVD-r releases. Got a not working ladies versus butlers and kanakon.... also the labeling was messed up. Incorrect content....


Their blurays work fine.

Happy to see the much maligned, underrated Doomed Megalopolis listed. It's weird and it's pretty great! And the inspiration for M. Bison/Vega from Street Fighter II!

It's like Toykopop. They both somehow stay afloat.

Great News in all honesty for new collectors. However still picked up all of majority of these on DVD back in 2010/11 so I have little reason to double dip.

I'd still like Simoun on bluray, if they still have the rights to that (maybe with proper subtitle timing on eps 5 and 6 this time, eh?)

I'd really like to see Simoun on bluray myself-it'd be a no brainer for me.

I'm amazed that Media Blasters is still around. And,it's around in a time in which other companies like ADV,Streamline,and others have basically disappeared from the scene. I don't know how they were able to do this but it's an achievement in and of itself. This company's like a combination of a cockroach and the Energizer Bunny. They both keep going and going where others might not. Still,I'm surprised this company's still here after all this time.

You and me both. I have a Blu-ray player so why not make the most of it? Choosing DVD over Blu-ray is like choosing Taco Bell over authentic Mexican food.

I'm surprised Grenadier is going to get the Blu-ray treatment. Are there any HD masters floating around or will this be an upscaled release? Or will it be a SD-BD release with all the episodes on one disc?
