80's Gold

This is the opening from an anime called The Mysterious Cities of Gold shown throughout the 80's, between Japan in 1982 to 1983 and as late as the early 1990s in Australia.

The series has just been released on R1 DVD this week, having made it to R2 and R4 DVDs last year. It has been rumored since last year, a movie release of the series is being planned, as well as a sequel series with a 2011 release date. No word if either has plans for release in any other English or French speaking region, like the first series.

The deluxe version, complete with every episode, is for sale at Amazon for a whopping USD$59.99, down from $75.99.

I somewhat recommend this series, more or less as a reflection on cheesy 80's cartoons of the day and how campy things can get. The opening alone should give you a good understanding of the camp this series had, if you didn't get a chance to watch it when it first aired.

Can't say I remember this one...
Although the characters look sorta familiar?
I guess it didn't re-run often?

So many great programs from the 80's :)
