New Anime Distributor

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Animal Treasure Island, Puss 'n Boots, and Taro the Dragon Boy and Lupin DVDs on their Way

According to the website of Discotek Media, a new North American DVD distributor, they intend to license, localise and release anime as well as other Asian cinema.

While no anime titles are mentioned on Discotek's website, Anime on DVD quotes a Discotek representative as saying they are going to release classic anime films Animal Treasure Island, Puss 'n Boots, and Taro the Dragon Boy.

Anime on DVD also reports that Discotek will be releasing several Lupin titles, Lupin III: Strange Psycho-Kinetic Strategy, Lupin III: The Legend of the Gold of Babylon and Lupin III: The Fuma Conspiracy.

AnimEigo released the Fuma Conspiracy on DVD in early 2003, the DVD is still available from their website. AnimEigo also released The Legend of the Gold of Babylon on VHS and LaserDisc, however the title has never had a North American DVD release.

The live-action Strange Psycho-Kinetic Strategy has never been released in North America.

According to Discotek, "They all will have the original Japanese language, anamorphic widescreen, and the English dub."
