Huge thanks on the post. I've been wondering like crazy when the rest of the LW & C discs would come out.

I'll believe it when I'm watching WHITE HEAVEN IN HELL in 480p

Don't count your chickens before Robert sends you a shipping confirmation. I've watched some of these films slip from announced shipdates back in 99-2000.

If he announces 7 films in Dec-Feb, then figure we may get one film in April if we are lucky.

Regarding Lady Snowblood, the second one is the REALLY good one. Completely nuts.

The entire Lone Wolf and Cub series is a safe blind buy for anyone that enjoys films with violence that can tolerate subtitles.

Animeigo's bread and butter is its anime licenses. So, they have really marginalized their very promising Samurai Cinema imprint. I think Robert's business model is still too otaku oriented.

Yea, it looks like they already missed the date on the next one "Zatoichi the Outlaw". It was supposed to be ready today. Let's hope the schedule does not slip much. As long as the transfers are dead on, I can be patient.
