Super long title is long. This is 3 news in one:
Discotek Media Grabs a Slice, Announces "Samurai Pizza Cats" DVD
|Discotek Media is on a roll this afternoon. Mere moments after announcing Casshan: Robot Hunter on its Facebook page, it rolled out a whole pizza pie's worth of goodness by announcing the release of Samurai Pizza Cats on DVD.|
Discotek's release of the series will come in two flavors (no 'chovies), as the company stated that there would be an English dubbed release, as well as a Japanese language release with English subtitles.
A Tatsunoko Production, Samurai Pizza Cats originally aired on TV Tokyo as Cat Ninja Legend Teyandee from 1990-1991. It was broadcast on US television courtesy of Saban in 1991. Who else has fond memories of Samurai Pizza Cats? I know I can't wait!
Note: According to wiki the JP version was 54 episodes long. While 52 of them were translated [the other 2 are apparently clip episodes/summaries so they were apparently unnecessary] some episodes got banned in the US version due to censorship and only 40 of them aired.
Discotek Media Announces "Casshan: Robot Hunter" DVD Release
|Ever the intrepid company despite its small size, Discotek Media continues on its old-school anime kick and has announced the forthcoming release of the 1993 Casshan: Robot Hunter OVA series produced by Tatsunoko Pro and Artmic at the tail-end of the OVA boom.|
The Discotek release will also include the Harmony Gold produced English dub, which was notable for being directed by polarizing industry figure Carl Macek when the OVA series was originally released in 1995 as an edited 100 minute feature film version in the US, and was one of many directorial projects for the producer and scriptwriter. The release is scheduled for later this year with pricing and availability yet to be determined.
Enslaved by an army of rebellious super robots originally designed to help civilization avert a complete ecological cataclysm, mankind's only hope is Casshan, a legendary hero who wages a solitary war to defeat the NEOROIDS and restore the Earth to its rightful order. Ironically, Casshan's father is the same scientist who engineered the race of super androids now threatening to destroy all of mankind. On a crusade to clear the name of his father, Casshan must sacrifice his own humanity in order to attain the powers he needs to defeat mankind's powerful enemies. However, Casshan's power does not come without a price. Haunted by the memories of his murdered mother and forced to deal with a super robot that has absorbed and now manipulates the consciousness of his father, Casshan must put aside his own emotions and fight to preserve the survival of the human race.
NOTE: To make it clear this is not the original 1973 35eps. Casshan series but a 4eps. OVA that came out in 1993.
Discotek Media Announces "Shin Getter Robo VS Neo Getter Robo!" Anime DVD
|Phew, just when you thought the night was coming to a close, Discotek Media adds another upcoming release with the announcement of Shin Getter Robo VS Neo Getter Robo.|
According to Discotek's Facebook post, a DVD of the anime OVA series will come first with a Blu-ray release later on. Directed by Jun Kawagoe (Mazinkaiser SKL, Shin Getter Robo), Shin Getter Robo VS Neo Getter Robo was first released in Japan in 2000.

New Getter Robo in BD would be amazing. Violence Jack in BD would be awesome too.
