Discotek announced that that they have the license for Tetsujin 28-gou (1980) and will be releasing it on BD on January 29th 2019.
I'm actually surprised they're releasing it next month, it's coming out before several of the other series in their last bulk announcement as well as projects they've been working on for awhile like the US release of the 2000s Cyborg 009 series.

What the fuck is going on
>>
>>17036522
Correct. The master tapes for 009 were incomplete and heavily water damaged. They were apparently found unceremoniously stuffed in a trash bag and thrown in a random closet. It's a miracle anyone even found them at all.

After over two years, it might be safe to say that's just not in the cards anymore.

Well, they could either just release their shit on DVD or not region lock their BDs.

Either way it's a fucking pain in the ass.
>>
>>17036963
I don't think they could just remove the region locks on their DVDs and BDs and have the Japanese companies they're licensing the shows from just be okay with that. Not with all the paranoia about reverse importation.
>>
>>17036963
>or not region lock their BDs.
Aren't BD players that are region free pretty common? What's even the point in it then, I assume I'm missing at least something.
>>
>>17036983
Their DVDs were encoded for regions 1-4 the last time I checked.

>>17037014
They are, but nobody sells them here domestically and the region A player I imported was a piece of junk and stopped working properly less than a year after buying it and I couldn't afford to send it back. I do have a BD-ROM drive but I don't want to watch them on my PC.

That makes no sense tho since both Japan and USA are region A.
>>
>>17037014
They can be pretty pricey especially if you need to import one. I think that may be why region coding hasn't been killed off entirely by now.

And generally speaking, the purpose of region coding is so that the rightsholder can make the maximum profit off of licensing a property to different regions.

>>17037058
It must be a recent thing that they've been doing then, because the Lupin releases I've got from them are Region 1 only.
>>
>>17037123
Fuck, you're right. I have no idea why they do that shit then.

Maybe to keep the Euros in their place.
>>
>>17037129
>It must be a recent thing that they've been doing then, because the Lupin releases I've got from them are Region 1 only.
How recent are those? Because I just checked my Great Mazinger discs and they're coded for regions 1-6.

>>17037129
>And generally speaking, the purpose of region coding is so that the rightsholder can make the maximum profit off of licensing a property to different regions.
And that's fucking lame and gay if you live somewhere with zero public interest in the franchise of your preference so nobody's ever gonna license it anyway.
>>
>>17037146
The Lupin releases I've got are the first series, Mystery of Mamo, and Fuma Conspiracy. Roughly from the 2007-2014 time frame. Apparently the first of their second series box sets is also Region 1.

And yeah, pretty much everything about region codes is lame, gay, and anti-consumer.

>>17037123
Jap licensors have other ways around reverse importation paranoia for BDs
Usually it's just forcing the western release to be x amount of months after the Japanese one and forcing subtitles when Japanese audio is selected, but sometimes they can get a bit more scummy. Like when they forced the original BDs for Persona 4 to be dub only or when Funimation was giving crappy masters for Re: Zero. And if you're Aniplex you just charge Japanese prices to begin with and refuse to renew any outstanding license agreements.
>>

I still wonder what sorcery they pulled to be the first to put Legend of the Gold of Babylon on BD in any country.

>>17036617
ADV I think tried to start a classic anime label back in the day and the Layzner tapes they got for some reason were all tinted blue. Or that's the hearsay I heard anyway. Ended up putting the kibosh on the whole line along with their second planned release, which was going to be Giant Gorg.
>>
>>17037440
Does Japan honestly give a shit about Legend of Gold Babylon? Apart from Seijun Suzuki fans it seems to be part of that thing where people actively try to forget Pink Jacket Lupin exists.
>>
>>17036581
Newer generations grow up just streaming their anime so physical releases are increasingly becoming the preserve of hardcore collectors, who are more likely to buy classic shit. So long as you do a limited production run that's guaranteed to sell out you can make a slim profit, that seems to be Discotek's methodology. Also helps that a lot of this stuff being licensed have been recently getting high profile remakes, that's definitely the case with the manga that Seven Seas have been translating. Kids didn't give a shit about Devilman before Crybaby, now we have the whole thing in english.
>>
>>17037717
Honestly, I don't think anyone really gives a shit about Babylon except for hardcore Lupin fans.
>>
>>17036983
Nips and the Americas are on the same blu ray regions any way. Unless they're really worried about sells lose in Europe/Straya or China it doesn't seem like it should be a big deal

DVD for comparison. When region locked mattered for japs and the US.
>>
>>17037998
The deal is though, a jap (region locked) Blu Ray wouldn't work in either of those places anyway. They (licensing company) would be undermining companies the japs licensed to instead of the japs themselves. They really shouldn't care.

alongside the other reasons that have been stated I imagine the rights for a lot of these old shows are pretty cheap

It mostly makes a sort of weird sense
All of Europe being together works because of how much cultural exchange there's always been, that extends into pop-culture. Throwing Aussies in with them works because they share a lot of media with Britain. Africa's not exactly known for its entertainment industry, and French is still lingua franca there for now, so including them kind of works.
US and Canada together for obvious reasons. Weird that South America would be chucked in there, given it's Spanish history, but I suppose keeping all of the Americas in one works in its own way. Having Japan, Korea and the Pacific Islands there is a bit weirder.
And then the 3rd World is Region 3. Simples.
>>
>>17038296
Is this even related to Toei Getter or is it a one shot original creation?
>>
>>17037254

completely unrelated but how do I get into Lupin? it has been on my radar for quite a while but I have been holding back cause their material is quite massive, is the manga and anime related whatsoever?
>>
>>17040035

There's really no best way to start Lupin, but I recommend starting with the first television series. It's the first Lupin III TV series and it's pretty damn good to boot. One of the best TV anime of the 70s IMO.

The manga and anime obviously have the characters and concept in common, and there are a couple of episodes adapted from manga chapters. But that being said, a lot of the Lupin TV shows and movies are just directors and writers doing whatever they want rather than a 1:1 adaptation.

So, basically, there is no substitute for reading the manga and no substitute for watching the anime. Which, I think is pretty cool.
>>
>>17039984
there's no continuity between it and '70s getter
>>
>>17040035
Watch the first two TV shows. Then watch Mystery of Mamo and Castle of Cagliostro. After that take your pick of the films and OVAs that sound interesting. I'd recommend Fuma Conspiracy, Bye Bye Liberty Crisis, Episode 0 and the two Takashi Koike movies, Jigen's Gravestone and Bloodsplatter of Goemon Ishikawa. Manga you can read whatever's published in english.
>>
>>17040035
>>17040074
I actually thought the first couple of episodes are rather weak, but still early in the show you get the great prison escape one.
>>
>>17041198
>Manga you can read whatever's published in english.

Who do I have to kill for it to be republished in hardback with the color pages intact?
>>
>>17041233
I'd say Tokyopop but they're deader than dead. Then I'd say wait for the next high profile new series or remake but we've had two Lupin TV shows in the last few years, and no interest there. So never.

We're possibly going to get a Koike remake of Mystery of Mamo in the next few years though, so that's going to be cool.
>>
>>17040035
Honestly with Lupin you could start almost anywhere, it's all very standalone and you rarely need any sort of background beyond a basic who's who of the characters.
For my money, I'd say watch the original TV series first then move on to Mystery of Mamo and Castle of Cagliostro. Not only is all of it pretty high quality stuff but you'll get all good grasp on the wide range Lupin's tone can take.
From there it's just whatever you're in the mood for; Part 2 was a cult hit on Adult Swim and was the introduction to Lupin for a lot of people (myself included), and is great for episodic wacky thief adventures. If you want something darker akin to early Part 1 you can watch the Koike stuff, if you want a more serialized story you can watch Part 4, or you can check out any of the countless TV specials that have been released over the years.

They changed the leg proportions. The positioning of the knee is far higher in Nagano's.

I didn't deny that it was traced, though. I said that the leg proportions were changed, which in the context of the initial comment implies that the proportion change made the figure look more human.

>>
>>17046210
Last time I'll believe somebody on /a/.
>>
>>17046283
The arms are the same length and adjusting the kneecaps made the proportions between the arms and legs normalized. Nagano's kneecaps are far too high, making the lower legs inhumanly long. The traced image adjusted the proportion between upper and lower leg, making them human-accurate.
>>
>>17046354
>By moving the position of the knees, the arms become too short to look natural.
Wrong. Nagano drew the arms with human proportions and then adjusted the positioning of the knee. The original drawing has ayylmao proportions.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/answerman/2018-09-26/.137307

they (japanese) probably had the masters lying around, and for some reason they weren't released yet. like KOR, which was rescanned by netflix, but isn't yet available on blu. another example is Venus Wars: it was released by Yamato Video (italy) in 2011 and by Discotek in 2015, but there's still no sign of a JP BD.

>>17036604
Two other big reason beyond the stated reasons is 1) the need for the raw materials of the tapes was more necessary than preserving the material (see everything from WW1 and 2 era) and 2) many companies back in the 60's and 70's didn't ever expect any of these shows to ever be shown again after the ceased airing and so didn't think it warranted holding on to, being pre-home video and all, and they didn't bother preserving them very well. Or in a mix of both cases, they reused/recycled the master copies because they couldn't afford more and didn't think anyone would care (see: basically all of Dr Who from the era)

There isn't any. Stop crying like you're a victim of some mass mod conspiracy. You're a crazy piece of shit who flooded this thread with schizophrenic shitposting and got your trash deleted. Simple as that.

>>17049782
Is the original still intact? I heard the first fifty or so episodes of Tetsujin were considered of poor quality or not American friendly enough, but the rest ended up getting dubbed into Gigantor. I'd like to see it and Tetsuin 28 FX get fully subbed.

>>17036413
Makes sense considering it's coming off the heels of their Godmars release, I'm guessing it was a package deal with TMS for their two Yokoyama robot shows.

The fuck is it with the Japs and rarely ever bothering to preserve any of their masters?
>>
>>17051207
It's not a Japanese thing, but it's just very difficult to maintain the material. British Broadcasting has lost a lot of their shows over the years, same goes for a variety of media across the world.
>>
>>17051207
>>17051215
Pretty much. This is a global problem, but different countries experienced it at different times for different things. There's so much lost media in the USA in terms of film, television, radio, music and animation but you'd have to be into those things to even know about it.
>>
>>17051215
I know it's not just a Japanese thing however Japan seems like the nation I hear of the most when it comes to more modern material still being poorly treated.
>>

That's because you're a weeb, so Japanese media is more on your radar.

Sound logic.

What 60s anime are available in English? I know the dubs of Astro Boy, Speed Racer and Gigantor are well preserved and that 8 Man has a weird "remastered" DVD that may or may not actually be a bootleg.

The BBC also deliberately wiped much of their stuff to reuse tapes. A lot of their shows weren't commercially viable for import to other countries.

Incidentally, NHK is funded in a manner similar to the BBC and also has missing shows.

Heck, most films of the silent era are lost forever because of nitrate film's bad tendency to catch fire when improperly stores.

One of 20th Century Fox's storage facilities caught fire in 1937 and it spread to the people living nearby, killing at least one person.
>>
>>17052062
So true. There are a lot of lost silent films. There were also many early television series that never had a single episode preserved. Same with radio shows. Things just broadcast live over air and never recorded except in rare cases where a fan made a bootleg recording. In fact, I have an Italian audio bootleg of an episode of a television series from the late 1940s and it's literally the only remnant of that series. Not a single episode survived. Just some photographs and a single audio bootleg from Italy.

>>17052121

There are entire forums dedicated to finding lost episodes of Dr. Who.

I've been looking into this too, I'm desperate for that Juspion BD when it drops. How viable is using an external BD drive? Is the drive itself locked or is it the software? Because the latter can be got around pretty easily, but the former fucks it all up

>>17051446
You'd be surprised how little was actually wiped for reuse compared to how much was straight-up thrown into a furnace to clear storage space. Not to mention the issue of live broadcast being standard practice well into the early-60s and very little attempt being made to actually keep recorded versions of any of it. We'll never, never, never see the last 4 episodes of The Quatermass Experiment, and it hurts badly.
>>
>>17052512
I think I heard something about employees destroying tapes even after being told to cut that shit out, but I can't for the life of me remember where or if there was a source on it.

Is there such a place for finding lost anime and toku? Also do lost toku even exist? I'm learning a lot about lost media in this thread.

Yeah. There's Thunder Mask, Totsugeki Human, and Majin Bander to name a few.

There is a lot of lost TV shows in my country because tapes were expensive and broadcasters reused them.

People underestimate what it takes to archive stuff for decades. Nowadays there is a huge building were all the TV stuff is kept and it costs millions to run the place.
>>
>>17053585
>People underestimate what it takes to archive stuff for decades.
This 100%. It was even harder to properly archive stuff in the early 20th century because the mediums were bulkier and required extremely well maintained environments in order to avoid damage. It simply wasn't economically feasible for most companies to archive their broadcasts/productions.
>>
>>17052659
Tons. There's a few surviving episodes of live action versions of Tetsujin 28 and Astro Boy. Tetsujin was just a guy in a suit, Astro was a kid in a plastic fetish suit with plastic hair.
>>
>>17053585
are you from mexico?

>>17052659
If puppet shows count, There's Spaceship Silica, Galaxy Boy Troop, and Aerial City 008. A single episode of from each series is about all that is left of them.
