I think Govarion may be Knack's best looking show. I realize this is not really saying a lot, but the series does a good job updating the Go Nagai super robot template to more contemporary designs, and I'm glad series like this and God Mazinger are getting domestic releases. Now let's see them release Sue Cat. I dare them!

Funimation picked up Paranoia Agent! Not super old, but it's great to have Satoshi Kon's work coming back in print again! It's streaming on their Funimation Now service, but will get a BD release later this year.

Ahh, Black Heaven. That was one of the first anime shows I actually watched, so I'll also be interested to pick that BD up.

Oh wow. Did they manage to find a 35mm print of Project A-Ko or is this another restoration job of existing materials?
