Going to make this short and sweet.
Buy it now!
Mazinkaiser/Shuten Doji DVD Double Pack (Hyb)
At the price there is no reason not to.
Could very well be the last time to get this great awesome OVA.

Now this is fun, over the top mecha, done right. :slight_smile: A lot of newer series just try to reinvent the 70s Giant Robo genre, MazinKaiser doesn’t do that… instead it revels in everything great about the genre and doing it well rather than trying new things. An absolute joy to watch, and the OP with the pure awesomeness of JAM Project… You really can’t go wrong with this title.

This title was sadly in danger of ADV letting it continue to go Out of Print for years and for a few weeks some months ago was put indefinitely on hold… but luckily ADV has found a way to release this cheaply, and comes with another series, Shuten Doji all for the price of 1. Can’t wait to finally get this title, by the time I saw it and fell in love with it it was already Out of Print (it wasn’t in circulation long before). Soon it will be mine.

This is a true labor of love by ADV and equally so for them to find the means to be able to release this series again in June in this industry and economic climate. I’ll be eternally grateful to finally have it in my collection. B) B) B)

Come on people I want to see this on RSI’s top pre-order list.

Just found out that I owe my school so that’s going to rape any money I get.

Yeah my parents are watching my debit card to make sure I don’t buy anything like anime off the interwebz. And I think the UPS truck would be a dead giveaway. For now I’ll stick to looking at Best Buy for deals.

You have to go to the main page of the shopping section and hit the link that has the Dark Lords face and hit pass to you see it. You can only chose one item and if you pass you pass no going back. And you need to be ready to check out as the cart loves to expire.

Popped this in on my DVD to finally spot-check it. :wink: Everything seems to be all a-Go!

Can’t stop listening to the OP over and over and over and over and over though. :wink:

Need to make room to watch this again very soon, but first need to watch Shuten Doji (never seen it before) and it came with the MazinKaiser set. Perhaps next week.
