Discotek Media announced on Friday that it has licensed the Goshogun (Sengoku Majin Goshōgun) television series and GoShogun: The Time Étranger film. The film is slated for release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in June with both English and Japanese audio. The television series will ship on DVD this year.

The original 26-episode television series premiered in Japan in 1981. In the story, hero Kenta assembles a team of warriors to fight the evil Docooga organization after it tries to steal his father's research on a new mysterious element. In 1985, Saban Entertainment combined the series with Akū Daisakusen Srungle to create Macron 1 for the U.S. market.

GoShogun: The Time Étranger debuted in Japan in 1985 as a sequel to Goshogun. Discotek Media describes the story:

Forty years after the events of the TV series, Remy Shimada, ex-pilot of the Goshogun, suffers a terrible accident while on her way to a meeting with her former robot-piloting comrades. While they rush to the hospital, Remy floats between life and death. She sees visions of her life when she was young, and stranger still, experiences a hallucination of being with her friends, all of them young again, in a mysterious city filled with hostile fanatics. Far from being the reunion Remy hoped for, a ghastly letter arrives for each member of the team that predicts their gruesome deaths. Slated to die in two days, both in reality and in her dream, Remy struggles to find a way out of the City of Fate, relying on the memories of her friends to see her through, even as they surround her death bed in the waking world.

Central Park Media previously released the film on DVD in 2003 under the title Time Stranger. The film also aired on ImaginAsian TV.


Also not mentioned in that article but mentioned here is that in addition to the CPM dub, they got the Manga UK dub for Time Étranger as well.

Also here's a look at the final packaging for Seha Girls which will be released on May 30th: http://i.imgur.com/iTqj8tA.jpg

EDIT: GoShogun movie also confirmed.

^ It's very notable that, aside from the same main characters, the sequel is sooo different in so many various significant ways from the original one, :ohmy: which's pretty rare, if any, in anime history, & which I think is pretty cool. :cool:

Got my set a few days ago and while I haven't watched it all yet, I did look at the last Magic Knight Rayearth disc and can confirm a few things regarding the extras (full list here).

Quote:
◦Interview with Julie Maddalena (English voice of Hikaru)
◦Interview with Wendee Lee (English voice of Umi & Princess Emeraude)
◦Interview with Ellen Wilkinson (English voice of Fuu)
◦Interview with Kaeko Sakamoto (English voice of Mokona)
◦Interview with Lex Lang (English voice of Zagato)
◦Group Interview with English Voice Cast


These sounded bad on the Media Blasters DVDs and as for here, they tried to clean them up but it's only a slight improvement.

Quote:
◦Episode 4 Alternate English Pilot


They used the Blu-ray video for this and had to recreate this dub's opening & credits, dub itself is pretty weak but then it's from WordFit-era Ocean and from 1995.

Quote:
◦Creditless Opening 1 (English V1)
◦Creditless Opening 1 (English V2)
◦Creditless Opening 1 (English V3)


V1 - Sandy Fox version from the MB DVDs
V2 - Jennifer Stigile version from the Sega Saturn game (Also the voice of Umi in that dub)
V3 - Same as V2 but it's the hidden version (details).

Quote:
◦Original Broadcast Openings


Now this is interesting because apparently there are 4 versions of Opening 1 & 3 versions of Opening 2. Wasn't aware of this since I think Media Blasters only has one version of each in the remastered sets. I wonder if the R2 DVDs had them?

Quote:
◦English Home Video Credits


These are from the original MB DVDs (NOT the remastered sets) which played during each episode so it's all of the Sandy Fox songs again including the slow version of Unyielding Wish from episode 20.

Quote:
◦Production Art Slideshow
◦Model Sheet Slideshow


The amount of art in theses slideshows...they have A LOT more than Media Blasters had. The production art for example has exactly 72 images (or 66 if you don't count the original illustrations of 6 of them) while the MB DVDs only had 34 (16 on Disc 1, 18 on Disc 6) so most of these are new.

Half of the extras are in HD (including those from the Japanese Blu-ray set, list is here) while the other half is in SD and considering the latter's sources, it's for the best.

Here's a look at Kyousougiga:

Discotek Media announced on Friday that it has licensed the Psybuster (Cybuster) and Dancouga (Dancougar - Super Beast Machine God) anime. Both series will ship on DVD on July 25, alongside Discotek's DVD releases of Midnight Eye Goku and Captain Harlock Endless Orbit SSX. The Psybuster DVD will have an English dub in addition to the Japanese language track.

Psybuster is based on original characters from the Super Robot Wars game series. Discotek describes the story:

"In 2040, the continuous pollution and the mysterious series of earthquakes left the city of Tokyo in ruins. A young man named Ken Ando is in training to become a member of DC, an army-like organization designed to investigate and protect the collapsing environment. Ken, with the support from his sister, Sayuri, gives his best to become a part of the elite group. But he receives the devastating news of being cut from the team because of his poor performances in the evaluation sessions.

When an ominous monster suddenly appears from the sky with a blinding flash and starts mowing down DC's working robots with mysterious invisible forces. Ken, eager to show what he is truly made of, engages in a battle with the monster. Little does he realize his own fate and the fate of Earth itself may be linked to the mysterious Mech from another world."

The 26-episode series premiered in 1999. Geneon Entertainment previously released the series on DVD in North America with the title spelled Cybuster.

Discotek describes Dancouga:

"Deep in outer space, the emperor Muge plots his next conquest - an out-of-the-way planet known as Earth. Mustering all the forces of his own personal Empire of Death, the Emperor is by far the most formidable foe humans have ever faced. And now he's even more fearsome thanks to the defection of Shapiro Keats, a power-hungry Earthling reborn as an Empire informer.

Army after army crumbles in the face of an onslaught of the Empire's seemingly indestructible robots. But now there's a team that just might be able to stop them: an ace pilot named Shinobu, Sara (Shapiro's one-time girlfriend) , and Ryo, a very unlikely young hero. Together, they're in command of a new secret weapon developed in a laboratory hidden deep in a lake in Japan. Enter Dancougar, the Super Beast Machine God - and the battle's just beginning!"

The 38-episode series premiered in 1985 and spawned three original video anime (OVA) sequels. Another television series titled Jūsō Kikō Dancouga Nova premiered in 2007. Central Park Media previously licensed the series.

And coming on June 27th with the Fatal Fury BD:

Just found this recently uploaded clip of a live performance of the full version of that OP theme by its original singer himself many years ago (if I recall correctly, that concert was held in 1999, the same year of that anime):



^ Too bad the pic quality isn't great, tho.
