Mysterious Cities of Gold
AICN Anime reports that Arts Alliance America is going to release the classic 1982 Studio Pierrot anime Mysterious Cities of Gold in the US. Some of you may remember the show-- it aired on Nickelodeon from '86 to '90, though this will be the first time it's been released in the US on DVD.


The series is being released on April 7 in two different forms: one that comes with just the 39 episodes and a few bonus features for $49.95, and another with a collectors booklet, poster, and other goodies for $79.95.


For those of you not familiar with the story, here's the blurb!


It is 1532 and Esteban, a Spanish orphan, is on a quest to find his father. He joins a party of Spaniards as they search for one of The Seven Cities of Gold in The New World. Zia, An Incan girl named Zia, and Tao, the last descendant of the sunken empire of Hiva, help Estaban on his search. On their journey, the three of them discover many lost technological wonders of the Mayans, Inca, and Olmecs - including The Golden Condor, a huge solar-powered airship, capable of traveling considerable distances under the sun's power alone. They are constantly pursued by antagonists Gomez and Gaspard, who are also in search of the Cities of Gold.

Hopefully they'll sell enough copies to get more old-school anime here.
