Discotek releasing Cinderella Boy Feb 2018
« on: November 27, 2017, 03:46:13 pm »
News via Anime News Network | Encyclopedia page for the show

I never would have guessed anyone would pick this up for distribution. It's not particular new or clever, but it was decent enough fun over thirteen episodes. I know what I'll be buying in February... Now, if Discotek picks up Mankatsu, I know the apocalypse is nigh...

I never heard of this manga/anime before. ;o (Then again, I'm not familiar with most of his other works, other than the ones I saw Mankatsu, and even then I can't remember most of the titles from it)


Do you think they are going to released Alice?(or any other of the ones from Mankatsu if any?)

I don't believe the Alice OVA from 1991 was released on DVD. Might be a long shot, but I thought that about Cinderella Boy. Yet, here we are...

While not great imo, it is a pretty fun watch. Here's hoping for more obscure Monkey Punch releases (like 'The Siamese - First Mission').

Sprak: You’re confusing Mankatsu with Gundou Musashi.   :P And maybe Gijinden Roman, too, I guess.

It's curious how Monkey Punch's non-Lupin works are now getting their own animated shows.

This particular story has seemed a bit weird to me, like Lupin meets Ranma. But I hope it does well.

Cinderella Boy the anime is relatively old now (2003). I think this is the last
Monkey Punch work to get an adaptation apart from Lupin III.
But yeah this is more or less Lupin mixed with Ranman. ^^
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

Are there any Lupin references or shout outs in Cinderella Boy out of interest?

I recall watching this with fansubs many, many moons ago. It wasn't the greatest thing ever and I recall none of the cars having wheels for some reason, but it was fun.

I don't remember there being any specific references to Lupin in this series, but I think the last time I saw this show was well over ten years ago.
