    Giant Robo is coming to Blu-Ray! All of it. Art not final.

    Raise your hand, who guess this one?

    Actually, put them down, no one guessed. I looked at responses.

    Discotek is releasing Giant Robo on Blu-ray, all 7 OVA episodes. Both English dubs. Ginrei special will be included in SD. Toole is hoping to include a lot of extras, hopefully production artwork. Stay tuned.

    HOORAY, AT LAST

    I'll probably end up getting a lot of the stuff Discotek announced, but this and Kimagure Orange Road are the only two that I'm really excited about.

      Same here! Giant Robo was an early anime viewing for me, circa mid-1990's, so I'm looking forward to checking it out again. That and KOR were my favorite of the DiscoTek announcements...

          Assuming this will be one of the titles that Discotek really puts their all into making perfect, I think I'll probably have to pick up the Blu-ray eventually. I'd love to dive into a beautiful, extra-packed collection of this classic.

            Giant Robo: We're still in materials gathering mode on this one, so it'll be a while yet. Worth it, I promise. Anyone who's seen the JP BD can tell you, it so pretty.

            EDIT: https://twitter.com/worldofcrap/stat...41085127901184
            Presuming Discotek has both English dubs? I found it really interesting to switch between the two when I first watched the DVDs (eventually settled on the hammier, more radio theatre-esque NY dub; lots of fun in that one).


            Yes, we plan on including both. There was a 5.1 mix that was made of the NYAV dub that was never released that we were looking for, but it may no longer exist.
            EDIT 2: https://twitter.com/worldofcrap/stat...18045623468032
            My Media Blasters DVDs of Giant Robo do seem to have a 5.1 mix of the NY dub (assuming I'm remembering right and that's the "new" dub). Is this the mix you mean? From memory it is a bit of a wonky sounding mix so I always figured it was upmixed from stereo


            I need to double-check, but regardless we'd hope to get it lossless.
