Original SD Gundam to get DVD boxSunrise
announces the original SD Gundam anime, one of the last Gundam animations yet to see release on DVD, will come out in a limited, 4-disc SD Gundam Collection Box on November 23 for 25,200 yen (reserveration cutoff date is October 17). Created between 1988 and 1993, the original SD Gundam anime productions haven't been released in a video format since their VHS tapes came out 15-20 years ago.Bandai Visual's site
confirms that the Box will contain HD remasters of nearly every SD Gundam animation produced in those days: the SD Gundam Mk-I through Mk-V OVAs, the SD Gundam's Counterattack theatrical shorts, all 4 volumes of the SD Gundam Gaiden OVA, the theatrical SD Gundam Festival collection, the theatrical Musha, Knight, Commando SD Gundam Scramble short, and the Dawn Of Paparu Episode 103: Suginamu's Bride OVA. A potential sore point is the apparent omission of SD Gundam Wacky Races, a parody of Hanna Barbera's Wacky Races cartoon, from SD Gundam Mk-IV's listing
Special features include an interview with director Tetsuro Amino and SD Gundam character designer/mangaka Kouji Yokoi, a reprint of Ganso SD Gundam, a Bandai Carddas card, and a special video called "SD Gundam: Past, Present, And Future".
