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

    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.

    Compiler..forgot about. Ditto Megami Paradise.
    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 evergreen classic police procedural known as Mad Bull 34. I can't think of a reason why there's so little love for this show. (Well, other than the rampant misogyny, morally dubious main character, and frankly crappy animation - but hey, I still love it.)

    Also Midnight Eye Goku and One Pound Gospel.

    Found a couple more in my cupboard I didn't list, both ADV. Capricorn (Johji Manabe) & Gude Crest (like Dirty Pair but with swords).

    Well, pretty much any anime on VHS I own is automatically on my list, so that means these:
    Next Senki Ehrgeiz
    Shin Hurricane Polymar
    Eat-Man ['97]
    Dangaioh (I will never count Manga's horribly-done DVD release)
    Dancougar - Super Bestial Machine God
    The Abashiri Family
    Iczelion

    And I'll add to that list titles like Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals and The Cockpit, which I don't own on VHS but would easily buy if they were given DVD releases.

    So was The Cockpit IIRC.

    I second Blue Sonnet - especially as Hiromi Tsuru is the lead character & I have the LDs. D'oh

    Iczelion (ADV) is a title I own, but not on my list. Scramble Wars/Ten Little Gal Force (Animeigo) is another. Tale of Genji (CPM) another still.

    I should add in fairness that I certainly agree it would be nice to see it released in a newer format one of these days. But I'd long consigned it to the dustbin of licensed anime history. (And I had also long forgotten about that UK release Skywise mentions.)

    I sit corrected
