Hello!

I remember last year Right Stuf International said they had
finished restoring 30 odd episodes of this. Is this where Madman are
getting their version from?

Also, i noticed the Japanese Box-Sets for this come with some nice
stickers. Would Madman be able to manage afew more extras like that?
Maybe one of the discs(Extras Dics) could be packaged as a 2CD set
with a Soundtrack selection.

Just encouraging you to try more things Twisted Evil !

Also, will you be releasing any current release series as Tin Box
Perfect Collections(with Big Booklets n'such). That would be the
next logical step(my little marionettes) Evil or Very Mad !!

yeah the old B&W series would be great to see on dvd in some kind of a boxed set. I imagine the B&W series would be truer to the original manga than other series, hence it would be good to see how alternate original?versions of various storie lines are portrayed. like 'the greatest robot in the world' for instance.

Cool

According to the booklet that came with the 80's Tin set, Astro creator Osamu Tezuka wasn't totally happy with the B&W series, so (I think) he took full control of the 80's series. So the 80's series should be the most faithful to Tezuka's vision for Astro.

Which one is actually closer to the original manga as far as storylines goes, I don't know.

I haven't seen the B&W series apart from ep1 from the 80's DVD set. It will be interesting to see it.

Madman would be getting the video elements from Tezuka Pro
and taking the audio elements from 16mm prints and other sources
to get the best picture and best audio possible. Dont expect the audio
to be up to par with today technology. Its 40 year old sources we are
talking about here and most of it used repeatedly in television broadcasting.
