Joy of joys, one of my favorite anime’s of all time, The Samurai Pizza Cats has a box set coming out in July of this year. It will retail for $79.99 and it will have all 52 episodes (dubbed) on 8 DVD‘s. Discotek Media‘s Facebook Page posted the release a few day’s ago. This was a short lived series shown here in the US. It’s time slot was when most kids where headed to school, so hardly anyone saw it. This was at a time when Anime was still gaining some steam here in the US, and for some of us at the the time that were already fans, we were already enjoying such shows as the above aforementioned, Sailor Moon, Ronin Warriors, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and a few others. (I s always saw the Dragon Balls in it’s original Japanese version with Subtitles, and I never warmed to the dubbed versions.) All of these were shown like at 5 am, and we all had to set our VCR‘s to those time slots, and they never were on for very long. I do like the fact that Cartoon Network had the Anime Block at midnight that showed Gundam, Cowboy Bebop, and such, and even Sci-Fi was showing some classic anime films, such as Appleseed, Akira, etc.
Anyway, I am looking forward to this box set release, and will be purchasing it as soon as I can. I also did a post about this show not too long ago. (see Link below. )
Thank you also to Critique4Geeks for the original info.
Awesome! I watched this back before I knew what anime was, but it (along with Sailor Moon) was one of my earliest experiences of the medium, and I still have a lot of love for it.
I was starting to get into anime myself at the time this was shown. The writing was very witty which I loved. I hope it gets a new set of fans when this is released.
Yeah, the writing was awesome – not to mention not at all politically correct, which was great. The dub voice actors couldn’t get a hold of the complete scripts, so they basically made everything up based on what they saw on screen. XD
