By both hook and crook, Sena Kobayakawa’s unnaturally strong sense of self preservation and even more extraordinary skills at fleeing have turned him into the star running back of his school’s admittedly unusual US-style football team. And even more amazingly, the Deimon Demon Bats are actually starting to be taken seriously! But can Machiavellian manager Himura pull an even bigger trick and build the team into a serious challenge to the awesome might of the Taiyou Sphinx? He’ll have to if they want to have the privilege of tackling the NASA Aliens! Sena’s biggest challenge and greatest rival are about to take the field by storm in EYESHIELD 21 - COLLECTION 2!

More surprised about the Golgo 13 dub then the Dark Kings Blu-Ray.


#4

Is it weird that I can’t wait for second part of Eyeshield 21?

gimmegimmegimme

The license of GOlgo 13 TV is definitely a surprise, but it’s a great surprise! And it’s being dubbed to boot… I hope we start to see more immediate dubs from Sentai now.

Sentai certainly is becoming more and more a favorite of mine; while they don’t neccesarily license the animes I want brought over the most, especially Ring ni Kakero 1, there are just so many titles they do pick up that I just can’t say no to, like with Golgo.

I was pretty damned surprised by the Golgo 13 license, let alone the news it was going to have a dub. Also a bit surprised that Legend of The Dark King will be their first series on Bluray, though I imagine it was easier to get rights for that one, than say Clannad. It does give me more hope for a Clannad bluray though.

I’m picking them all up!

Finally another manly man show - Golgo 13 TV. Legends of the Dark King was getting kinda lonely up there.


#8

Golgo 13 and Raoh Gaiden Blu-Ray.

Being as Raoh Gaiden sold well, we’ll probably be seeing Fist of the Blue Sky.

A dub, and a Blu-ray, Sentai is moving up in the world. I don’t want either, but Sentai’s press releases just got more interesting.

Good job.
