Gunsmith Cats Bluray Kickstarter

A little late on this, but Animeigo’s Kickstarter to get the Gunsmith Cats OVA on bluray started up a few days ago and made it’s goal in a little less than 4 1/2 hours. If you want to get in on it here’s the link. I still need to do so myself, but there’s still plenty of time. I’ve got the old ADV Films DVD (the image above) and just loved it back in the day. Very much looking forward to getting it on bluray.

And speaking of Gunsmith Cats, were getting some new anime. Unfortunately, it’s just a short (for now, crossing fingers), but it’s better than nothing.

FWIW, there will be a separate release for the Japanese version of Lupin the 3rd Part 4. Unfortunately, that’s just the way it had to be. Read here for the explanation. Regardless, I’ll most likely buy both sets, since I’m a fan of the franchise. The Discotek rep also let us know that they couldn’t get better masters for Star Ocean EX or Tokyo Undergound, so if you have the old Geneon DVDs, there’s probably not much reason to upgrade. Still, it’s nice to have these old Geneon shows back out in the market. Hopefully, more old Geneon shows will continue to be released either by them or someone else.
