    My theory on the future of Tatsunokos popularity outside of Japan

    Whether or not you have played Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, it's easy to see that due to the popularity of this game, interest in the anime produced by Tatsunoko Productions is greatly increasing outside of it's rootland of Japan. I admit I find myself searching the web for Yatterman and Neo-Human Casshern episodes. I also have witnessed that I'm certainly not the only one. I've seen bulletins and messages on various sites begging for links to Tatsunoko anime episodes.

    Needless to say, if raising interest in their products overseas was the reason Tatsunoko tried so despreatly to push Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for a world wide release, it worked. My prediction is that now that demand is high for these anime series, Tatsunoko is going to cash in. If they don't they'll miss a huge opportunity. Tatsunoko has given us anime before, but not many. And usually when it's shown overseas it's completely censored, or in Gatchamans case, completely "Americanized." Now I see Tatsunoko giving us fans the anime most of us haven't been able to enjoy, and return to us the anime they have given us before but keep it the way it was suppose to be.
    Tatsunoko now has a vastly larger fanbase to cater to, let's hope they do it right.

    Thing I expect to see:

    Older Tatsunoko anime series, like the original Gatchaman, Yatterman, Tekkaman, ect. getting english dubbed, uncut, digitally remastered dvd box-set releases.

    Newer Tatsunoko anime series, like the 2008 version of Yatterman, Tekkaman Blade, or Karas coming to television overseas.

    Tatsunoko movies getting DVD releases

    Tekkeman was an upset for me but I never actually finished it. I bought it on english dub before though so you should be able to get it somewhere. And I am happy for future releases but they have beaten so many to death in the past.

    Most Western people who buy this game have no idea who most of the characters from the Tatsunoko side are. But since it's so accessible and it's coupled with the Capcom characters the sales don't suffer too much.

    It might give some people the incentive to try out some of these series but I doubt that will last.

    Actually this thread is about Tatsunoko popularity and marketing, not Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

    Fair enough.

    I doubt the exposure from the game will have that much of an impact though.
