                So Discotek wins anime for the year, right?

                  Only Hells and the Lupin titles for me (where's Blood Spray?), but I'm sure other people will love the old-school shonen and mecha shows.

                  Oh, and that wasn't even half of what Discotek has on their plate at the moment.

                      The old mecha titles certainly got my attention, but I must admit they, along with Discotek's previous Mazinger licenses (I've just started watching Great Mazinger) also raised greedy daydreams of other giant robot series from the 1970s being released. Some of the shows I have in mind, though, would probably mean Discotek having to license from companies they haven't worked with before.

                        Had to skip the last two announcements in order to get seating for the AMV Contest results (with me finding out via Twitter), but given everything that was announced before Kimagure Orange Road and Giant Robo, it was obvious that Discotek won Otakon this year,

                          Ultimately Discotek didn't announce that many things that I'll personally be buying, but it was impossible not to be infected by the enthusiasm in the room and passionately applaud along with everyone at the relentless stream of new information being conveyed with their distinct charm, especially with the constant reminders of how much effort the people working on these releases, almost entirely fans with a love that inspires them to pour their skills into creating the ideal product, put forth.
