Media Blasters will be releasing the first of three sets of the English dubbed Teknoman on May 30. Each set will be 14-15 episodes and will be “budget priced” at $59.95 (an average of $4.28 per episode). Teknoman will be the Saban dubbed and edited TV broadcast version of the 1990s. A total of 43 English episodes exist and will be released by Media Blasters.
Due to the editing of the English language version, it wasn’t possible for Media Blasters to release a subbed and dubbed version with the same video, so they will be releasing an uncut, sub only, Tekkaman Blade later in 2006. The Tekkaman Blade release will be a special edition release with remastered video and all the extras from the Japanese LD and DVD sets. There are 49 Japanese episodes, all of which will be released by Media Blasters.
No uncut dub? Count me out. But for those who don’t care about that, be glad you’re getting this oldie but a goodie.
