    This film needs a region 1 release.

    Badly.

    I don't think New Line owns any rights to SHOGUN ASSASSIN. New WORLD released the film theatrically in the states, although MCA had tape rights for some time. Besides, what do you want SHOGUN ASSASSIN for? Hold off and wait for the LONE WOLF & CUB series. I've heard that Animego (who released the tapes and LDs stateside) are awaiting restoration work to finish in Japan so they can release the films on DVD in the states. THAT should be something.

    Dang. Anyone know who owns the rights to it now?

    I'm going to be picking up the original films on DVD, but SHOGUN ASSASSIN is a lot of fun. The Diagoro narration, and score are great.

    I watch SHOGUN ASSASSIN, and the original BABY CART films for completely different reasons.
