Speed Racer - The Checkered Flag Waves For Speed Racer: Lionsgate Announces Vol. 5, Provides Hi-Res Box Art

Whether you like or dislike the single-disc "volume by volume" release pattern that Lionsgate chose for Speed Racer, fans of the show have certainly been supporting these releases with their purchases, and therefore you'll be pleased to know that you won't have to wait until next Spring to get the 5th and final DVD. Lionsgate has been releasing these approximately a year apart, for a $22.98 SRP per release, but for this last one it is both quicker and cheaper!

Speed Racer - Collector's Edition Vol 5 arrives on October 31st for $19.98 SRP. The final 8 episodes of the show's fifty-two episode run race to a grand finish here, running the race in 184 minutes:
  • Great Car Wrestling Match
  • Motorcycle Apaches
  • Car with a Brain
  • Junk Car Grand Prix
  • The Car in the Sky
  • The Trick Race
  • Race Around the World (Part 1)
  • Race Around the World (Part 2)

In addition to these episodes, you'll get a collectible metal miniature license plate inside the box that says "Go Speed Racer Go!" This version of the packaging, with the license plate inside, is available for a limited time according to Lionsgate. Here's the rest of the studio's description:
    The fifth and final volume of the classic Japanese anime series that's a must-have for Speed Racer fans and anime fans. Includes the most exciting final 8 episodes from the original TV series never before on DVD! Follow Speed and his turbocharged Mach-5 as he and his gang (Trixie, Sparky, Spritle, and Chim Chim) go on to the Grand Prix, the key race for the World Racing Championship, defeating colorful villains, including Mr. Free Load, the international spies, and the infamous Racer X!

Video is full frame, Language/Subtitles are listed as English and Spanish, with 2.0 audio format, and closed captioning for the hearing impaired. Lionsgate was kind enough to send over high-resolution cover art for us to show you, and we appreciate that!
