Meh, not really interested in the LA series, but glad to get abit more info on Lupin III, $59.95..whooo..thats abit steep for me, but it'll probably be cheaper then that at Amazon &/or Hastings, so still deffinantly picking it up when it comes out this Summer. Ol Lupin needs all the love he can get, seriously, series is way underrated in the state IMO...who cares if its old, its good.
Discotek license-rescues Casshan: Robot Hunter!
The North American video distributor Discotek Media revealed on Monday that it licensed the 1993 Casshan: Robot Hunter original video anime (OVA) series. The four-part project remakes Tatsunoko's classic 1973-1974 Shinzo Ningen Casshan television anime series. The story follows a cyborg who rises against the robotic armies that have subjugated all of humanity.
Discotek plans to release all four episodes with English subtitles and dubbing later this year. Streamline Pictures and ADV Films both released this 1993 remake in North America in the past.
The same story was also remade as a 2004 live-action film by Kazuaki Kiriya, and as the 2008 Casshern Sins television anime series by the studio MADHOUSE. Dreamworks' Go Fish Pictures division released the 2004 live-action film version, and Funimation released Casshern Sins.
And i didn't think i would need a reason to buy Casshern Sins for a third time.
Good job Discotek!

March is now my favorite month of the year and i'll be looking forward to all this greatness.
Haven't watched the dub since it's TV run on WB but i remember liking it so i'll gladly buy both sub & dub releases.
When did that happen?
It was a Fox Kids series. The WB didn't exist when SPC first came out.
I don't remember the year exactly but it ran on WPIX channel 11 (which was WB & now CW/PIX) over here on weekday afternoons and i remember watching it during Summer break. VR Troopers (another Saban series) ran on the same network as well.
Edit: Someone posted a list of networks it ran on.
