Title: Discotek rescues Walther/Island of Assassins and picks up OP:Return the Treasure
Post by: GATSU on August 13, 2016, 03:39:16 pm
Details here (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-08-13/discotek-licenses-arcadia-of-my-youth-urusei-yatsura-beautiful-dreamer-films-more-lupin-specials/.105330).

Edit: Oh, and yes, Walther will probably have the FUNi dub, if you like that sort of thing.  ;)

Edit 2: I already said this on Twitter, but if you liked Jigen's Gravestone, then you'll love Walther/Island of Assassins.

I was debating whether or not to get Island of Assassins now or later. Well, now I know to wait.

Good to know we're still getting new specials as well.

Reed just Tweeted that he mixed them up, and Walther's out next year, while Treasure's out sometime before the end of '016.

Both quite good, I enjoy how they are releasing from both the '90s and '00s. Along with Part II they're releasing faster than I can buy. XP

On a unrelated note, can't wait for Arcadia of My Youth. Discotek does not disappoint.

Very happy about Return the Treasure as it's a special I've wanted to see for a long time. Island of Assassins is among my favourites, so can't really complain, but I would have liked Dragon of Doom instead.

Reed just linked the Otakon trailer (https://twitter.com/Jose_CNN/status/768298063567859713) cut by @Jose_CNN.

Wow, the footage of Island of Assassins(one of my personal favorite Lupin III features ever) in the Otacon trailer is already much better quality than my old Funimation DVD of the TV special.

I love that Discotek is resuing these, but the prices aren't great. Granted, I'm sure the licensing deal influenced that. Back when Funimation was releasing them I'd get them off the shelf at best buy for lower prices than these go for on amazon etc. $25 for Alcatraz, an old made-for-TV anime movie? Thats the same price as a new blu-ray season of a brand new TV series, Ash vs Evil Dead for example.

The prices are awful, but I guess maybe it's a niche thing for fans such as ourselves.

I see they're also releasing one of my favorite movies, Arcadia of My Youth on blu-ray. Hopefully it's not $1000 dollars, I'd like to grab that.  :P

Thanks, that's cool. So $18.71, though with shipping it may not be much less than Amazon Prime. Still, thanks.

edit from a month later: ooh its 17.99 on Amazon Prime now folks

Via Kitty Sparkes and @ashuraou, diamonds are a Lupin's best friend. Er, I mean, potential Treasure back cover (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10157344986110433&set=pcb.766393493502933&type=3&theater). Go here (https://twitter.com/ashuraou/status/772268680986161152), if that link ain't working.

Is there a bigger version of that Return the Treasure image that's in the article? I really like Jigen and Goemon having their arms around each other like that.
