Teknoman and Tekkamen Blade to be Released Separately

Media Blasters will be releasing the first of three sets of the English dubbed Teknoman on May 30. Each set will be 14-15 episodes and will be "budget priced" at $59.95 (an average of $4.28 per episode).

Teknoman will be the Saban dubbed and edited TV broadcast version of the 1990s. A total of 43 English episodes exist and will be released by Media Blasters.

Due to the editing of the English language version, it wasn't possible for Media Blasters to release a subbed and dubbed version with the same video, so they will be releasing an uncut, sub only Tekkaman Blade later in 2006.

The Tekkaman Blade release will will be a special edition release with remastered video and all the extras from the Japanese LD and DVD sets.

There are 49 Japanese episodes, all of which will be released by Media Blasters.

Lately Media Blasters has been focusing on older titles as well as newer anime. Tekkaman Blade will join the likes of Giant Robo, Master of Mosquiton, Iczer and Saber Marionette R, all of which have recently been released by Media Blasters. Regarding Tekkaman Blade, John Sirabella, CEO of Media Blastersters, stated "Tekkaman Blade is one of the best hand-drawn high-budget robot animes to come out of Tatsunoko Pro studios (famed for Gatchaman, Speed Racer) and its release is long overdue."

Currently release details, date, and pricing for Tekkaman Blade are not yet available.
