The world’s most selfish hero is ready to embark on another quest for coin and, well, mostly coin.
Earlier today, Discotek Media announced that they acquired two new anime series. Both Koi Koi Seven and Gokudo will join the company’s lineup in September. Though Koi Koi Seven doesn’t have a specific release date, Gokudo will hit stores in a complete collection on September 27.
In addition, Discotek revealed several new release dates:
- 9/27/2016: Tekkaman Blade II (Blu-Ray)
- 9/27/2016: Street Fighter II (US Cartoon)
- September 2016: Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie (Blu-Ray)
- October 2016: Hana Yori Dango
Koi Koi Seven is based on Morishige’s manga series of the same name. The series, which aired in the spring 2005 broadcast season, was helmed by Yoshitaka Fujimoto (Knights of Ramune, Master of Martial Hearts) at Studio Flag and Trinet Entertainment. Tamotsu Mizukoshi was in charge of series composition for the project, while Koji Watanabe (Ace Attorney, Blue Gender) provided character designs.
Gokudo is an original series, which kicked off in the spring 1999 broadcast season. The 26-episode show was directed by Kunihisa Sugishima (Speed Grapher, Beyblade: Metal Fury) at Trans Arts Co., with Miho Shimogasa (Gravitation, Ultra Maniac) providing character designs. Atsuhiro Tomioka (Inazuma Eleven, Pokémon XY) wrote the title’s scripts.
Enoki Films is the licensor for both shows, and lists Gokudo under the title “Jester the Unlikely”. Media Blasters originally released Gokudo in North America on DVD.
