    Updated November 3, 2022 - At the Anime Boston convention, Discotek Media--a Boutique DVD/Blu-ray publisher of Japanese anime and Asian cinema--announced that they will released the SD version of the entire Virtua Fighter anime on Blu-Ray! That is 35 episodes of the 1995 tv series. It includes season 2 (only English subtitle) that was much harder for those outside of Japan to find and watch. The anime will be released on January 31, 2023.

      Oh YEAH!!! that's Sweet! I always wanted to watch season 2 after finding out that Season 1 was never dubbed in english. And even then, I could never find season 2 anywhere online that wasn't potato quality.

      Guys don't get mad at me, but the anime was released all at once in Italy back in the 90's :°) I halso have half vhs collection (the other half is at my friend's house).

      I was going to ask why they even printed on BRD instead of DVD in that case, but I guess it's to fit absolutely everything onto one disc.
      Still really cool, I think I'll pick this up!

      Sweet. I saw this series on YouTube many years back. It was actually pretty funny.

      I found this reply from several years ago:

      thank you, so it will be region locked unfortunately
    9. MadeManG74
      Well that sucks, looks like I'm not buying it after all.
    10. akai
      That is unfortunate if other regions have to jump through hurdles to watch it…

      Maybe @Mister can share his VHS collection! Most of my VHS tape have not fared well with time. Actually is it all dubbed in Italian, Mister? Or is this a fan subtitled version of the anime?
    11. MadeManG74
      It's on a handful of streaming services for some countries, but looks like no options for Australia right now.

      It is fully Italian Dubbed unfortunately :/ in fact Wolf's Giant Swing is called "Rotazione" in my version and Jacky's Somersault is "Calcio Rovesciato".

      Also i own only half of the VHS the other half is owned by a friend (he's still looking for them and eventually if he finds them he will give them to me to complete the collection).

      Virtua Fighter Anime is a fairly good show in terms of the quality of the story. The only issue I have with the show is that season 2 included, Sarah Bryant has been stripped to a generic damsel in distress. Mostly one at least.

      It's now mid-September, and still no news of this (I wonder if it's a worldwide release?).
