I feel like I'll pick these titles up from the Discotek booth at upcoming cons, the ones I have my eye on are GE999, Area 88 (to upscale from my VHS copies I got online from Tim Eldred a few years ago) and Voltes V (another tape I got from Tim at the same time, cept its a straight Japanese VHS copy). The other's im gonna wait on, but those titles are up my ally for sure. Juspion is a series ive known about for years, and knew of the intro from Megadriver cover of the song ages ago, so i'd have to check that out eventually: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x37bhlm0CO8

Hoooly crap. This is the biggest retro anime batch announcement I've ever seen at one time. Literally all of these are BIG time shows

Whaaaa? KOR TV on Blu Ray?

KOR is the one that got away for me. Can't wait to snag that when it comes out!

^ Yeah, I mean, between this and finally getting my KOR manga rewards through the DMP Kickstarter ...eventually...I don't know if I can contain my excitement.

All I need now is an update on Matsumoto's health and I'd be pretty thrilled with things on this end.

Probably just Area 88 for me. Having had KOR hyped up to the nines to me for years, I was a bit underwhelmed when I finally saw some of it. Great music though.

A new generation will have to pick up their jaw when watching Ginrei specials after serious G-ROBO. :o
You didn't realize those side stories were going to be insane based off the LD ads...

I'm not too hard up on KOR at the moment, not when I've got a handful of the old AnimEigo VHS tapes of the series above my head that i'll get to watching eventually.

Good news, but shame on those title cards.

Same here. I picked up a bunch of KOR VHS tapes years ago and finally watched them last summer, but it just didn't live up to the hype for me.

I'm excited to get Space Wolf Juspion and Area 88 though. Was hoping for a Dominion Tank Police announcement, but I guess that'll have to wait.
