any news on Speed Racer Vol 2? my boys keep asking when it's gonna come out.
I don't think there is a volume two. The disc that came out is the remainder of episodes that exist after a warehouse fire destroyed most of the originals. I beleive there is a bunch of newer Speed Racers that were done in the US but they lack the charm of the original Japanese.
That would suck if true. I want the Ali Ben Schemer desert race episodes and also the ones where they race through the live volcano.
Naaaaaaah. Every episode ever shown in the US was available on DVD in this now-OOP limited-edition set. The 5 discs in that set were aquired by Artisan and broken into 5 individual releases. #1 is out, the question is "where is #2?" It's coming. The last I heard is that we should see it around April...about a year after #1 hit. Artisan has only announced releases through January, so I guess we're 3 months away from knowing if it will make that schedule. However, it's possible that the aquisition of Artisan by Lion's Gate will affect their schedule of releases...only time will tell!
A couple months ago, I e-mailed Artisan with this same question. The reply was Volume 2 would be out sometime in 2004.
Just pre-ordered my copy of volume 2 at Deep Discount DVD. Release date is listed as 5/18/04. This should probably be moved to the TV Software section.
Well, I'm happy I'm wrong as I will be getting this. I just wish I remember where I read about this supposed fire?
yep this kind of snuck under the radar Episodes 12-24 out 5/18
