About Glass Mask Blu-ray
Glass Mask, created in 1984, contains episodes 1-22 of the anime directed by Gisaburou Sugii.
It seems like a fairy tale story. Plucked from obscurity by the legendary actress Chigusa Tsukikage, 13-year-old Maya Kitajima is given the chance of a lifetime and the opportunity to study at a legendary acting school. She'll also find an archrival, however, and Ayumi Himekawa is as determined to be the greatest actress of her generation as Maya is. To succeed, each girl must conquer every acting challenge placed in front of her and then push even further as they aim for the same ultimate goal: the role of the Crimson Goddess in the play of the same name, a part created by Chigusa herself. All the world is the stage as the ultimate dramatic rivalry begins in the original anime classic.

Ratings & Reviews
FINALLY! we have the original 1984 series coming to America. I couldn’t be more excited for this!!! Give the series a chance, you won’t be disappointed!
yay for more classic shojo anime!!!
This 23 episode series from 1984 (not to be confused with the 2005 version, which had 51 episodes) is a classic. Tons of of drama and angst, definitely worth a watch for classic shojo fans. Support this and maybe we'll get more classic anime.
This is the 1984 iteration of Glass Mask not the 2005 re-iteration, as very clearly stated in the product description, and is thus complete at the stated 22 episodes.
The classic tv show
This is the series from the 80s which was only 23 eps.
There are 2 makes of the show. This is the first release of it..
This is in response to David, and what people may not realize.. There was 2 releases of this show. An original release, which was back in 84, which was only one season, and was either 22 episodes long. Then, there was another release, which was actual a complete remake of the show, in 2005.. The 2005 release only released season one, or 26 of the 51 episodes, in the USA.. Neither release was dubbed, only subbed. Since this is the 84 release, that does make this the full release of that version of the show. I obviously have not watched the older version yet, but I did love the newer version of the show.. So it is definitely worth considering.
