North American distributor releasing 4-episode OAV with English dub

The North American home video distributor Discotek announced on Wednesday through its Facebook page that it will be releasing the original Mad Bull 34 original animated video (OAV) series on DVD in 2013. According to the post, the series will be put on DVD and will include an English dub along with an English-subtitled Japanese language track.

Kazuo Koike and Noriyoshi Inoue's original Mad Bull 34 manga began in Shueisha's Young Jump magazine in 1986 and was then adapted into a four-episode anime series directed by Satoshi Dezaki beginning in 1990. Manga Entertainment had previously released the series with an English dub in North America. The title tells the story of a pair of police officers, John "Sleepy" Estes and Daizaburo "Eddie" Ban, as they fight crime in New York's crime-ridden 34th precinct by using extreme violence and other questionable methods. Discotek's Facebook post describes it as "Quite possibly the best bad anime ever made."
