Zatoichi release details

From the Digital Bits

Also this afternoon, we've got details on Home Vision's planned DVD release of Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman. The first five episodes (of seventeen total) will be released this year, including 1. Zatoichi Monogatari (The Life and Opinion of Masseur Ichi), 2. Zoku Zatoichi Monogatari (The Return of Masseur Ichi), 3. Shin Zatoichi Monogatari (Masseur Ichi Enters Again), 4. Zatoichi Kyo Jyo Tabi (Masseur Ichi, the Fugitive) and 5. Zatoichi Kenka-Tabi (Zatoichi on the Road). The first two titles (see artwork above) will street on May 14th, with the other three following in October and the rest in 2003. Expect each disc to include restored video in the original aspect ratio, remixed sound, a collectable poster and a stills gallery (SRP $19.95 each). More details will follow when they become available.

Here's the link so you can check out the covers:

Not a huge fan of the earlier B&W Zat films, but it is nice that these are finally seeing the light of day. Hopefully Zatoichi Blind Chess Expert, Zatoichi Vs the One-Armed Swordsman (with both alternate endings) and Zatoichi the Outlaw will be on the way soon.... I know I'll probalby grab a few/all of them eventually.

Now, if only AnimEigo would get Lone Wolf and Cub out.
