  • Penguin Highway | 120 min | publisher: Fuji Creative Corp.

    Movie licensed in the UK (Anime Limited)


    • Haven't done one of these in a while...this time it's for Enoki (http://enoki-films.co.jp/index_list.php). There have been plenty of Enoki licenses picked up recently by Discotek Media. There are still a couple OOP titles that could still be picked up.

      A few unlicensed titles to look at:

      The original Captain Tsubasa series could be interesting pick-up if available (maybe a SD BD candidate).

      J9 trilogy could be another possibility and there are also BD releases in Japan.

      • Will everyone stop ignoring Submarine Super 99 already!? lol. Seriously I'm dying to add that to my Leijiverse collection regardless of its quality. I mean with Beast Fighter and Wild 7 getting picked up I swear Discotek are just trolling me and other who want this from their Enoki Films haul.

        The J9 trilogy is something that would be wonderful, getting to watch Sasuraiger is a dream that I would love to come true.

        • I think Submarine Super 99 has as good a chance as a number of Enoki titles. The longshot titles are probably titles aimed toward younger audience.


          • Of the remaining unlicensed Enoki titles, these are the ones I'd be most interested in:
            -The J9 Series
            -Jibaku-kun: Twelve World Story (Bucky the Incredible Kid)
            -Shin Seiki Den Mars (Mars the Terminator)
            -Submarine Super 99
            -Mitsuteru Yokoyama's Romance of the Three Kingdoms (Quest of Three Kingdoms)
            -Giant Killing

            And maybe Captain Tsubasa, depending on what Viz will be doing with the current adaptation being made (& what exactly this newest version covers).
            Come Visit The Land of Obscusion... Maybe you missed a title the first time around.

              • Looks like HiDive got Armored Trooper Votoms. They shared this on their Twitter earlier today but then deleted the tweet. Someone might've jumped the gun on their social media.

                • Good to see! Hopefully that means that either Sentai or Maiden Japan will be putting it on home video too.

                    Just after I finally got the DVDs. I swear this happens every single time I track down an old show these days.

                    • Funimation may have SSSS.Gridman. It's listed under their AX panels & screenings info. It may also just be a promotion for Studio Trigger.



                      • Fantasia Film Festival is hosting North American premiere screenings of Penguin Highway and Aragne: Sign of Vermillion.


                        It's not as telling for North American licensors as it is for live-action Japanese films, but you never know.


                        • Looks like Crunchyroll has Ulysses: Jeanne d'Arc and the Alchemist Knight, a show that's airing this fall. Expect that show to get officially announced at the CR panel at AX, and it is probably going to get a simuldub as well. This is mentioned in the guest description for the show's director that will be coming to Crunchyroll Expo.
