    US releases you're wishing for?

    I'm sure many of us have anime that we love to see released in the US, but that so far haven't seen the light of day in the country outside of torrents or maybe bootlegs. What's your wish list?

    All I know is if that stubborn and boneheaded "Pokemon Company, Inc." would ever (in my dreams) release the anime uncut and subbed in this country, they'd be getting a heaping business from me! Sadly though, the show is barely available even in Japan outside of rental discs. ><

    Others I'd like to see:
    In the Beginning
    Jungle Taitei (Kimba the White Lion), uncut
    Only Yesterday
    Tetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy), uncut

    It'd also be nice if America got to legally see more Detective Conan (Case Closed).

    Last I heard there was some sort of licensing issue, so I don't know that anybody can get their hands on it right now.

    Also, it's a crime that both Saiunkuoku and Witch Hunter Robin get no love. Yes, I know WHR is now under Funi. But who knows when they'll release it.

    Holy Crap! You made my day! I am not a huge fan of subs, but I would love to see this series.

    Both seasons. Also the OP/ED are in their original Japanese for the dub track, which I'm glad about since I'm not a fan of the dub songs from the 2001 DVD/VHS release, although the insert songs are the English versions. Not the worse ever but I'm happy the days of dubbing openings are basically dead.
    Whelp, as much as I do like the pakaging for them, it may be time to retire those DVD sets. But on the bright side I will get a better overall product and more shelf space back.
    I'll pick up the BD set possibly during the holiday sale then.

    One last question then: Does it contain both seasons or just the first?

    Very worth the upgrade, nice remaster. Especially compared to the 2001 DVDs which were not much better than VHS.

    Oh, how good is the BD of Rayearth?
    I've been kinda wanting to get it, but i have the original box set of it and really like the pakaging...
    Is it worth the upgrade though?

    Anyway, I wouldn't count any of those out with Discotek around. Older stuff like that is their specialty. Personally, I'm waiting to see if their streaming license for Fushigi Yugi expands to home video too. I would love to see them do that on BD, since they did a great job on Magic Knight Rayearth's BD set.

    Full Moon wo Sagashite (not very likely to ever happen anymore)

    Yuri on Ice
    Kyo Kara Maoh season 3 and OVAs
    Happy Happy Clover (a girl can dream, right?)
    Yuri on Ice is getting a release though.
    Funi is bringing it out.
    It's just going to take like 2 years to get it.
    I'd love to see Full Moon, Saiunkoku and Kyo Kara Maoh get releases...
