    Astroboy comming to DVD

    Here is some good news for all of us Astroboy fans.

    Sony will be releasing a 5-disc set containing all 50 episodes of Astro Boy [2003] on March 29th. Of 50 episodes produced, only 21 were aired on television in North America (on Kids WB, Cartoon Network and YTV)
    It's just to bad that it's the new series and not the 80's or even the orignail from the 60's. Both of wich I think were far better then this one was.

    Their providing English, Portuguese, and Spanish soundtracks in this release, but where's the original Japanese sound track??? With a pre-order price of $35.01 (SRP $49.95), the price is affordable for a 50 episode collection...

    Guess what.... if you can play region 4 DVD's (Australia) Madman entertainment have all ready released the completle 1980's series of Astro Boy. 12 of so DVDs in a funky red tin case
    They are also releasing the 1960's series too later this year.
    Unfortunatley, the 1980's one has the english track only, can't say what the 1960's one will have. So if you can't wait, and you're willing to pay ^^ here's the site:

    Madman my hero.... they are the only company that releases Anime DVDs in this country and are pretty much soley responsible for making Anime fandom in Australia almost rival that of America. I salute them
