If you are a fan of anime, and you haven't heard the name Arale-Chan... well then you probably need a good face slapping, for being so lazy. And since I'm not there to do it, then you can go ahead and slap yourself for me.
But if you have heard of the adorable android from the classic Akira Toriyama series, Dr Slump, then you will be thrilled at the news that Discotek Media acquiring the first five animated films based on the series.
Granted, this isn't massive news, considering what most fans really want is the original series. But for now, I suppose this will have to make due. If however this leads to a complete license of the series; then even better. But it does beg the question: how reliable is Discotek Media in regards to producing a consistent release of this beloved classic series?
If at some future time, they did manage to score the entire 200+ episode series, what sort of price, quality, and consecutive releases could we expect?
Lots of things are up in the air now. So while we enjoy these first five films, we can keep our fingers crossed for more.
