I was watching Zaranyzerak's anime collection on youtube and he mentioned a re-release of Bubblegum Crisis on Blu-ray by RightStuf. I checked and sure enough, Animeigo is releasing the Blu-ray again but direct this time. It's all the episodes on one Blu-ray instead of the three like the Kickstarter version. It's really extraordinarily disappointing that with the two recent Kickstarters of Gunsmith Cats and Riding Bean with Kenichi Sonoda's participation, plus last year's 30th anniversary of Bubblegum Crisis that there is still no real standout edition of this great anime. Both RightStuf and Amazon have the Blu-ray for pre-order at around $30 ($10 off retail price) so by the holidays you will probably be able to get it cheap. Maybe for the 35th or 40th anniversary they will try again with a real collector's edition. Perhaps we will have those Figma figures or a few bike toys by then too. People who passed on the Kickstarter with all its throw away trinkets I guess this release is for you.
Ah, the enigmatic Graham just refined his hint, so thought we might as well open up a new thread to discuss it. For one thing, we know it can't be Macross or Votoms. I don't think it's gonna be Orguss since Graham mentioned that another company is doing some Orguss stuff already. It's gotta make 'a lot of Macrossworlders happy' so it should be something we're familiar with. I personally would have wanted Mospeada mecha like the Mospeada itself or even better the Alpha fighters (lots of repaint possibilities on that one too so it would make sense from a practical standpoint. Hmmm...
