I'm really happy that Rightstuff got the rights for Princess Knight and will buy it one way or the other but I am disappointed that the Japanese version isn't available. When the anime Ronin Warriors was put on DVD, it was double sided. Side 1 offered the English version and Side 2 offered the uncut Japanese version. Is there a chance they could do this with Princess Knight?

No, there isn't. The original, uncut Japanese version was no longer available, since the studio that created it is gone. What the Nozomi team was able to re-create was compiled from the remaining edited, English dubbed footage that they were able to salvage on this side of the pond. And I'm sure that it was little less than a miracle that they were able to find as much as they did.

The original Japanese language dub track cannot be synced to the editted footage, so there is no way to re-create a Japanese dubbed version.

That's not true! Shawne confirmed a few weeks ago on the ANNCast, that the Japanese version is available. He just didn't went after it yet, but he is open to it.

Shawne said that he is focusing on the edited dub version, because he's trying to go after the nostalgia crowd. If there is enough demand, then he will consider going after the Japanese version (sub only).

I don't think that was what he ment.
Ronin warriors had the same problem too.
So that's why they put it on a dual sided disk.
I think that's what dragonrider is refering to.
Princess Knights original japanese version IS around...
Shawne just wasn't intrested in getting it cause he wants to target the people who saw the english version.
I don't blame him.
But take heart, dragon rider, Shawne didn't seem opposed to getting the original version.
Maybe if enough fans ask, he might pick it up.
I'd get both, I like comparing and contrasting things like that.

Ah. My bad. I was sure that I read somewhere that the original masters had been lost when the anime studio went out of business and their assets were sold. Maybe I got Princess Knight confused with something else.

Um, I don't seem to remember that particular series (Princess Knight).

I do remember Ronin Warriors, but I kinda doubt it holds up well now.

Plus I really don't like flipper discs.

BTW despite what Wikipedia says, I am pretty sure I saw Ronin Warriors BEFORE it was on Cartoon Network on a local Fox (maybe part of Fox Kids) station early afternoons.
Anybody else see it in the late 80s/early 90s?

It aired a few years earlier on the Syfy (Sci-Fi) channel.
