The North American video distributor Discotek Media revealed on Monday that it licensed the 1993 Casshan: Robot Hunter original video anime (OVA) series. The four-part project remakes Tatsunoko's classic 1973-1974 Shinzo Ningen Casshan television anime series. The story follows a cyborg who rises against the robotic armies that have subjugated all of humanity.
Discotek plans to release all four episodes with English subtitles and dubbing later this year. Streamline Pictures and ADV Films both released this 1993 remake in North America in the past.
The same story was also remade as a 2004 live-action film by Kazuaki Kiriya, and as the 2008 Casshern Sins television anime series by the studio MADHOUSE. Dreamworks' Go Fish Pictures division released the 2004 live-action film version, and Funimation released Casshern Sins.
