North American anime home video releases for 1/26/21

Hot damn — it’s time for Hajime no Ippo. I remember buying the first volume on a whim from Right Stuf Anime because it was only $3. It’s a great show, but it performed poorly when it first came out here. It’s great to see it getting a second chance. There’s also…uh…Genocyber, a series that features a POV shot of a baby being born.

I never thought I would see the day that Bartender would get a US release. Adam Sheehan pitched the idea when he worked at Funimation, but they were concerned about the potential legal issues due to the series featuring so many real brands of alcohol.
