Two of my favourite animation series are coming to DVD. First up we have Mediablasters with "Voltron: Defenders of the Universe" I used to watch Voltron on Italian TV during the summer vacation and also collected the toys, so this is a nice nostalgia trip for me.
"Voltron: Defender of the Universe has been planned for 8 DVD releases, each one containing three discs, approximately 15 episodes, and as many extras as we can squeeze in. We're preparing premium special edition packaging, an aggressive video restoration process, and remixed 5.1 audio. The goal is to make Voltron look better than it has ever looked before. We'll keep posting updates here about our restoration work, so check back often!Voltron: Defender of the Universe DVD vol. 1 hits the street Fall
2006 UPCOMING RELEASES:
In addition to Voltron: Defender of the Universe, we are planning to release Hundred Beast King GoLion and Armored Squadron Dairugger XV on DVD starting next year. These releases will be completely uncut and in their original Japanese with English Subtitles. Warning: While Voltron is suitable for all ages, GoLion and Dairugger contain violence and other scenes that may be too intense for younger viewers. Please use discretion. Release dates for GoLion and Dairugger are not yet available, but they will be posted here as soon as possible."
Next up is "Pinky & the Brain" from Warner Bros. with around 660 mins of the nefarious Brain and dumb sidekick Pinky trying to take over the world. It's going to be a 4-Disc set, but extras are yet to be defined.
