Virtually unknown outside of Japan, the 1989-1991 Asahi anime TV series adaptation of Fujio F Fujiko’s (Doraemon) Chinpui is headed to DVD for the first time as part of a new DVD-BOX release from Geneon Entertainment. The release is set for December 7 at 60,000 Yen. Chinpui holds the distinction of being IGPX Director Mitsuru Hongo’s first work (where he served as Chief Director) and superstar anime voice actress Megumi Hayashibaru’s professional debut. The BOX includes 112 episodes and the movie in an 11 DVD set. A special CD and booklet are included as extras.
