Discotek Media has a solid slate of titles ready for the month of April 2015 and one that a lot of people were excited about was the Blu-ray edition of the Castle of Cagliostro. Unfortunately, it looks like a delay is in order (again) as Amazon is now listing the release for June 23rd, 2015, though no other changes appear to be included with it.
Check out the image below that showcases the various aspects of the packaging that should delight fans in getting a great looking package.
The month of April will still be good for anime fans as fans of Free! are getting their first season on DVD at a solid price while Samurai Troopers is getting its TV series collection out in a big box set. There’s also good news for those looking for a priced-down version of Samurai Pizza Cats, as that will be heading your way.
Plot concept: After a successful robbery leaves famed thief Lupin III and his partner Jigen with nothing but a large amount of fake money, the so called “Goat Bills”, he decides to track down the counterfeiter responsible – and steal any other treasures he may find in the Castle of Cagliostro, including the ‘damsel in distress’ he finds imprisoned there. However, as usual, Inspector Zenigata is hot on his trail.
Tracking the legendary counterfeits known as “Goat Bills,” international thief Arsene Lupin III arrives at the Duchy of Cagliostro. Once there, he nearly rescues a damsel in distress from the Regent’s guards. Following his failure, Lupin takes it upon himself to save her from captivity.
