          Yes, Manga did manage to get Devilman and Amon Saga out, though both are out of print, and that Devilman DVD especially fetches some pretty high prices on the market...

            The Devilman OVA was only released with the Manga Video dub. The OVA was released subtitled on VHS by LA Hero way back in the day. That's the release I have, and after hearing the English dub, the subtitled version definitely needs to be on here.

            Mad Bull 34 is a largely forgettable show, but one I liked. It's definitely the perfect type of show to pop on Friday after work, and just forget about things. It never got a subbed release but at the same time, though I prefer subbed releases, it made more sense for me to see gritty 1980's NYC cops speaking in English even if it was British VA's (listen for the "he went to hospital"). Mad Bull 34 sits on top of Manga Video releases with Angel Cop as my favorite because it's a "so gritty, violent, yet mediocre but what the hey it's too much fun to care" shows.

              Robot Carnival and DYRL would be at the top of my list. Can't think of anything else to fill out the list tho.
