Most in need of American DVD release? Pick multiple options!

I had to filter between more than 20 series that would make great choices in order to list what is hopefully the 10 most needed entries. Please pick all the choices of what you'd buy and let's see what's the most popular.

Just replaced "Blue Blink" with "The New Adventures of Kimba".

I'd like to be able to watch again "Leo the Lion". I saw it as a child and loved it. :)

I've been having my eye on Jetter Mars for a long time. Can't really pin point why I'm so interested though. Also I need to watch Phoenix still.

This might be another avenue for advocating access to difficult to find Tezuka anime (talk about alliteration!)
I've copied this from a post on ABO and went there and posted a request. Could also work for Jetter Mars? This is actually part of Right Stuf Int'l - the folks who "saved" Astro Boy, so I think it might be worth the effort to contact them

1963 Astro Boy is licensed by Nozomi Entertainment, and their YouTube channel is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/nozomient?feature=watch . They don't have Astro Boy up, but if enough people show interest, they might upload in the future.

I have most of those, already, though only 2772 has English subs. I would like to see the other PHOENIX movies, though. 8)

As far as subbed DVDs, yes, I suppose I would like to see everything Tezuka made.


Edit: I actually have the Leo the Lion set; I got it from http://www.kimbawlion.com's author, Craig Andersen; THESE LACK THE sound & video problems that plague the old English DVD release, which I also have; but those are just about unwatchable.

I too would like to have everything, but that's why I set a 9 choices limit. That way you have to select your favorites. :)

Leo the Lion is indeed needing of an official release. I was wondering if maybe I should include it with the New Adventures of Kimba the same way I included two Phoenix series in the same slot.

I would be interested in almost any of these if they included uncut Japanese releases with subtitles. I'm not really a Japanese purist, but for some reason I almost always prefer subtitles. I think it has something to do with watching too many crappy dubs over the years. The English voice actors are rarely very good and those that are often seem to want to make "funny animal cartoon" voices instead of a more natural sound.

I chose Princess Knight and Dororo though... They're the ones on that list that were from Mushi Studio's hayday. Although I have to say I'm REALLY enjoying the Tree in the Sun manga (aka Tezuka's Ancestor) and the anime intrigues me as well.
