Funimation's Geneon Title's release FeaturedWritten by David Nolen
Been to my local Best Buy and noted that the Shana Box Set was up for sale, so that means the first of the titles that Funimation acquired from Geneon are now shipping. So head over to your favorite shop and get them now!
Maidens of Rozen! Must have them! My precious...oh, J.C...what a big hammer you have!
It's summer here in Minnesota, and that means that it's time for humidity, skeeters big enough to need runways to land - and oh yeah, the summer anime previews. There's fewer previews than usual this time around, but there are some big names coming to the small screen for this season. Already started is the third season of IkkiTousen: Great Guardians. The girls haven't found any sturdier clothing, either, so you know there's going to be plenty of eye candy bouncing all around. Blade of the Immortal, based on the long running manga of the same name, looks good, and I'll be interested to see if they manage to pull it off. Also making the leap is Sekirei, and IkkiTousen is going to have some competition in the jiggle meter from this one. But c'mon folks, don't just listen to me babble, take a look for yourself! As always, the page might take awhile to load, be patient. Don't forget too - this is hardly a complete list, just a small selection of the series due out this summer.
Well, looks like the guys at The Right Stuf have decided to do a massive liquidation of all their remaining Geneon products. Since Geneon went under their stuff is getting harder and harder to find, so order now while you still can!
Here's a special end of the year treat, folks - I've added some of the previews and commercials for the Winter 2008 anime season. Highlights include Ookami to Koushinryou, based on the Wolf and Spices manga series. There's also what's looking to be the "what the fu...?!" series of the season, Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi, though I'll admit that the video capture for it is pretty bad. Sorry folks - wish I had better for you. Go ahead and click the read more link for this story, but be warned - there's about twenty clips, and they each get their own mini-flash player. Might take awhile to load. Happy New Year!
Spring has sprung, and with it a new season of anime. This season includes the third installment of Code Geass, and more of To Love-ru in the returning series. A classic gets an update with Macross. You'll get your fix of just plain freaking WIERD with Maid Guy... And let's have some fun with a poor little fox that's gender-challenged in Wagaya. All told, looks like an interesting season's shaping up. Click on the read more link for previews for this season's series, and just like last time, be warned - you need Flash, and the page is a bit heavy, because this time around there's twenty six (!) clips! Enjoy!
For some of you this is old news. For others, you're probably like me and are reacting with with a giant "what the...?" I believe this qualifies as one of those Holy, Fucking, and Shit! moments.
Geneon has stopped US distribution of anime dvds. Just up and stopped. There was no warning at AX, that I was aware of. They had titles lined up, they had questions answered, they had...had...
'scuse me, I need to sit down. I'll be on the forums if anyone wants to come by.
I'm hoping this is just some sort of reshuffling and not as bad as it looks. I want my Rozen Maiden DVDs and my Shanna box set.
Soul over at the Virtual Infusion anime/game discussion board was kind enough to post a list of the new series due out this season. Couple interesting looking series coming up this season, like Ghost Hound, and Night Wizard. Thanks for the heads up, Soul!
Well, it looks like our diabolical friends over at the ASOS have come out with a new episode, they have right on their front page. Ep 005...which makes me wonder how many I missed so far...or did I miss them?
In any event, here you go, and spread the word! All Hail Haruhi!
As part of the viral or gorilla marketing scheme to announce the distribution by Bandai and release of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (no homepage yet, that I can find) by Kodokawa here in the states on May 29th, there has been a live action production of something referred to as the ASOS Brigade. At present these consist of two hilarious skits in a mixture of English and Japanese language which have to seen to be believed. The scheme also includes a MySpace page for those who are into that sort of thing.
And yes, that is indeed, as she herself says, the Pink Space Ranger, Patricia Ja Lee. Now all we need is for her and Johnny Young Bosch to get a part together, just for the shear irony of it all.
