The Japanese think English is cool, whether it follows the Japanese
script or not

Disney probably has no rights to do an English dub of Castle of
Cagliostro, or at least can't justify doing one just for non-English
speaking markets. Toho, however, probably owns Japanese rights to the
Streamline dub so that's what was tossed on. I would have liked the
Streamline dub on the Manga dvd as a third audio option, much as the
new Giant Robo dvds have both a new dub and the old USRenditions/Manga
one. It's history...

Depends. Manga picked up CoC durring the Streamline firesale that sent
many of the properties off to various companies (ADV got Dirty Pair,
Pioneer 3x3 Eyes and Akira, etc). They may only have the rights to that
one print, and attempts to get extras would mean re-negotiating with

I'm sure Manga is keeping CoC because it makes them some money, but
they've been known to just sit on things for the hell of it. They
picked up the Orguss tv series when they bought the USRenditions
catalog, and never did squat with it...
