NEW Watanabe/KANNO TEAM UP
“KIDS ON THE SLOPE”

HOUSTON, April 12, 2012— Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce the acquisition of one of the most anticipated animated series of the decade, KIDS ON THE SLOPE, the long awaited reunion of the team behind COWBOY BEBOP and MACROSS PLUS, director Shinichiro Watanabe (SAMURAI CHAMPLOO, THE ANIMATRIX ) and composer Yoko Kanno (RAHXEPHON, ESCAFLOWNE, GHOST IN THE SHELL S.A.C.). Produced for Fuji Televisions prestigious noitaminA block and based on the manga “Sakamichi no Apollon” by Yuki Kodama, the 12 episode series’ already blockbuster list of production credits grows even more impressive with the addition of character designer Nobuteru Yuki (RECORD OF LODOSS WAR, ESCAFLOWNE, BATTLE ANGEL) and scripting by Yuko Kakihara (PERSONA 4-THE ANIMATION, TAYUTAMA-KISS ON MY DIETY,) and his second season collaborator on Disney’s STITCH! anime series, Ayako Kato. There is perhaps no better summation of the astonishing caliber of talent assembled for this project than Ms. Kodama’s own words: “When it comes to adapting this manga to anime, I can say with no reservations that the series has been blessed with a brilliant combination of staff members that couldn't be any better.”

It’s the summer of 1966 and high school freshman Kaoru Nishimi is struggling to adjust to the latest of many moves in his young life, this time to his uncle’s home in the seaside town of Kyushu. It’s never easy adjusting. It’s never easy fitting in.

But this time will be different. This time he’ll meet friends who’ll change his life forever. And he’ll discover a new passion, one that grabs his heart and rocks him to his very soul.

It’s a music. A beat. A whole new way of looking at life. It’s called JAZZ, and together with bad boy Sentaro and music store girl Ritsuko, they’re going to follow their muse to wherever their music takes them! You think garage bands are something new? Think again and travel to a time when dreams and a couple of musical instruments really could change the world! Get ready to be blown away as the acclaimed team behind COWBOY BEBOP reunites for a tale of life, love and all that jazz in THE KIDS ON THE SLOPE!

THE KIDS ON THE SLOPE will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release on DVD & BD to follow.

“MYSTERIOUS GIRLFRIEND X”

HOUSTON, April 13, 2012— Just when you thought it couldn’t get any weirder, Sentai Filmworks proudly announces its acquisition of a tale of strange, sticky bonds and slobbering repercussions: Riichi Ueshiba’s Mysterious Girlfriend X! Featuring direction by Ayumu Watanabe (Space Brothers), music by Tomoki Hasegawa (DNAngel, NANA) and character designs by Kenichi Konishi (Bokurano, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos), Mysterious Girlfriend X is sure to be a hit with any self-respecting salivator.

When the oddly peculiar Mikoto Urabe transfers into Akira Tsubaki’s class, he finds that life has thrown him the weirdest curve ball ever. Because while Urabe may be an anti-social loner who sleeps on her desk, carries a pair of scissors in her underwear and breaks out in sudden fits of insane laughter, there’s something about her that Tsubaki just can’t quite put his finger on. Until he accidentally puts his finger in it, and suddenly the phrase “sharing spit with a girl” takes on an entirely new meaning! Before he can wipe her drool off his face, Tsubaki is mysteriously addicted to Urabe, which isn’t half as strange as the fact that she not only finds this normal, but already seems to have plans for her new drooling boyfriend. So can a girl spitting in your face ever be a GOOD thing? Is this relationship bound for disaster or great expectorations? Find out as Urabe puts a spittle love in Tsubaki’s heart and things get REALLY bizarre in the most dysfunctional bodily functional anime ever: Mysterious Girlfriend X!

Mysterious Girlfriend X will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.

“QUEEN’S BLADE REBELLION”

HOUSTON, April 17, 2012— Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce their acquisition of the season’s hottest swordswomen in Queen’s Blade Rebellion. With series composition by Hideki Shirane (Dream Eater Merry, Kill Me Baby!) and music by Masaru Yokoyama (Kimikiss: Pure Rouge, Freezing), five out five rebels agree that this series will kick some royal booty!

Power corrupts, and it when it appears that the once noble Queen Claudette’s ways have turned to oppression and heretical persecution, it’s up to a new generation of warriors to step up to the plate armor to bear arms and bare their naked fury in open rebellion! The odds may seem unfairly stacked in favor of the Amazonian ranks of the queen, doubly supported by her power of writ and assassins. But the incredible wits and assets of the dazzling array of daring damsels willing to risk their gorgeous skins and put their lithesome bodies on line against her, might just expose a few unexpected weaknesses in the queen’s support! It’s the wildest fantasy ever as an unprecedented force of fabulous female fighters… from Elven alchemist to half-demon berserker, from undead pirate captain to dragon maid… all come together with the goal of stripping the queen from her throne in QUEEN’S BLADE: REBELLION!

Queen’s Blade Rebellion will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.

“TSURITAMA”

HOUSTON, April 18, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce their latest catch: Kenji Nakamura’s (Ayakashi – Samurai Horror Tales) tsuritama. Originally airing in Fuji Television’s prestigious noitaminA block, tsuritama is sure to be the catch of the day.

You can’t catch fish if you don’t go fishing, and you can’t make friends if you don’t at least try. Which is how relationship-challenged student Yuki finds himself on a fishing trip to a tiny island with three other boys he barely knows. Well, two other boys and Haru, who claims that he’s an alien. Not that constantly stewing Natsuki or mysterious Akira are any more likely as prospects for good companionship. But there’s something about fishing that makes it unlike any other pastime, and maybe that quiet sense of companionship and hopeful expectation is just what Yuki needs to start charting the unfamiliar waters of personal connections. Or maybe it will turn out that Haru’s right and they’re going to have to save the entire planet. There are lots of different kinds of fish stories, from the “ones that got away” to the “best catches ever,” but whichever way the currents of life take them, for four young men, this trip may turn out to be the biggest whopper ever in tsuritama!

tsuritama will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.

“DUSK MAIDEN OF AMNESIA”

HOUSTON, April 19, 2012— Join Sentai Filmworks for a mystery that must be solved from beyond the grave as they announce the North American licensing of Dusk maiden of Amnesia. Director Shin Oonuma (ef ~ a tale of memories, ef ~ a tale of melodies) and character designer Yukiko Ban (.hack//SIGN) bring original creator Maybe’s tale of death and haunting to life.

60 years ago, a young woman was left to die in the abandoned school building behind the exclusive Seikyou Academy. No one knows why. No one knows how. But the horrifying tale and the legends of the ghostly haunting that followed live on to this day. Perhaps it’s not so surprising then, that among Seikyou’s many school clubs is one for students interested in “paranormal investigations.” What might raise more than a few hairs, however, is that the founder of the club is the ghost herself. Unable to remember how she died and trapped in the grey land between life and death, Yūko latches onto Teiichi Niiya, a freshman who can inexplicably see her, and together they and the other unsuspecting members of the club begin to unravel the many dark mysteries that surround Seikyou. Will unlocking the secret of Yūko’s gruesome death finally free her? Or will her sudden close association with a mortal have even stranger repercussions on both of their existences? In a tomb of silent classrooms, the answers await in Dusk maiden of Amnesia.

Dusk maiden of Amnesia will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.

FUNimation Entertainment Announces New Acquisitions at Anime Central

Flower Mound, TX – April 28, 2012 -FUNimation Entertainment announced today at Anime Central it has acquired the home media rights to the feature film King of Thorn and series Eureka 7: AO (Astral Ocean).

In addition, FUNimation has acquired the simulcasts rights for Eureka 7: AO. Full episodes will begin on www.funimation.com during spring 2012.

A brief synopsis for each series is listed below:

Eureka 7: AO (Astral Ocean) – The story is set on Okinawa's isolated island of Iwado, which has seen a growing movement advocating a return to an autonomous government. Ao Fukai, a 13-year- old boy with a missing father, lives on the island with an old doctor named Toshio and is about to enter middle school. Ao's mother was taken away a decade ago by unknown individuals. Naru Arata, Ao's 13-year-old childhood friend and the story's heroine, lives with her father, older sister, and grandmother. She has a "Yuta" power awakened within her due to an incident when she was young. A mysterious entity called "Secret" suddenly appears and launches an attack on the Scub Coral lifeform on the island. Ao launches a certain military FP called "Nirvash" aboard a Japanese military transport in his fervent desire to protect the island.

King of Thorn: Panic spreads worldwide as the Medousa Virus—a fatal pandemic that solidifies the body to stone—threatens to wipe out the human race. 160 infected individuals are selected to be cryogenically frozen while a cure is developed. Kasumi is one of those chosen for the experimental program. Forced to enter without her twin sister, Shizuku, her distress multiplies when she awakens to find the facility overrun with thick, thorny vines and ravenous monsters. As Kasumi and six others fight a losing battle to escape this labyrinthine nightmare, questions cloud her distorted mind. Where is her sister? Why did their only salvation mutate into a deathtrap? If they survive, how much longer do they have to live?

“UPOTTE!”

HOUSTON, May 02, 2012 — Forget about girls WITH guns, Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce their acquisition of Upotte!, the show that’s all about girls who ARE guns! Upotte! features the scripts by Naruhisa Arakawa (Listen To Me, Girls! I am Your Father, Blue Seed), direction by Takao Kato (To Love Ru, Pandora Hearts) and character designs by Akio Takami (Buso Renkin, Steam Detectives).

Kiss kiss, bang bang! The arms race takes on a startling new development when the arms come with heads, legs and very feminine bodies attached! Yes, at Seishou Academy every girl is literally a lethal weapon, and they’re all gunning for the top shot at getting their own personal serviceman! Needless to say, it’s going to be difficult for newly recruited human instructor Genkoku to adjust to working with a living arsenal of high caliber cuties with tricky names like FNC (Funko,) M 16A4 (Ichiroku,) L85A1 (Eru,) and SG 550 (Shigu,). Especially since many have hair triggers and there’s no bulletproof vest that can stop a really determined coed! He’ll have to rewrite the operator’s manual on student/teacher relationships, and pray that his job description won’t include having to field strip and reassemble one of his cadets in the dark. But unfortunately (for him,) FNC’s already thinking about becoming HIS personal weapon, and she usually gets what she aims for! Get ready for explosive situations, amour piercing rounds, cheap shots galore and one VERY shell-shocked homeroom instructor in UPOTTE!

UPOTTE! will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.

“CLUSTER EDGE”

HOUSTON, May 17, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce their acquisition of Cluster Edge. This Sci-Fi spectacular, with animation production by SUNRISE, consists of 25 episodes, plus 3 OVA episodes and was directed by Masashi Ikeda (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Inuyasha), features character designs by Yoshihito Hishinuma (Inuyasha) and Wan Komatsuda, and music by Takayuki Negishi (Tokyo Majin, RIN – Daughters of Mnemosyne).

Cluster Edge Academy isn’t just any school; it’s THE school, where the offspring of the elite come together to prepare for their roles running a world where artificial soldiers and religious sects are major factors in the battle for total control. Which may be part of why new transfer student Agate Fluorite doesn’t quite seem to fit in. It’s not just that Agate’s enthusiastic attitude stands out among the somber, brooding balance of the student body. There’s something about him that demands notice, even from jaded honors students like Beryl Jasper, and from the moment of arrival he’s been at the center of a series of mysteries that not even Agate understands. Because Agate’s not just another student, he’s part of a something so momentous, and dangerous, that the world that built Cluster Edge may not survive its passing.

Cluster Edge will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release on subtitled DVD to follow.

Animation is produced by SUNRISE.

In the final years of the Bakumatsu, wandering mercenary Yojiro Akizuki travels the length and breadth of Japan. And while he employs his sword in the usual fashion, he also uses it to help him locate supernatural items which he pursues with single-minded determination, often with bloody results. In the course of his quest, he crosses paths with a traveling theater group whose members have their own dark agenda. Is it a chance meeting or the result of some, as yet, undiscovered conspiracy? Swords will swing and sorcery make itself felt in Intrigue in the Bakumatsu ~ Irohanihoheto Collection 1!

Intrigue in the Bakumatsu ~ Irohanihoheto will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.

EDIT: via Viz Media Facebook page (from someone who attended the panel)
-Also out in Nov INUYASHA FINAL ACT!!! It'll be 2 disks, covering eps 1-13 (so a 2-parter) with a DVD and blu ray release (no combo pack though...)

Good news. But it's too bad they're not releasing a Blu-ray version. I usually only buy blus these days.

Only one thing though: in my opinion relatively few anime deserve to be shown on Blu-ray, mostly because of the expense of creating anime that looks good in high definition. I've have Baka and Test on Blu-ray and it just looks really harsh at full-resolution 1080p. Now, something like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, on the other hand....

I would strongly disagree with that idea, most recent anime that was natively produced in HD looks much better on Blu-ray. Only the stuff made years ago in the early 2000's really doesn't benefit.

Good to finally have a date for Inuyasha: Final Act. A bit disappointed they're splitting it up into 2 parts with no word on when the second half will be released, but it's to be expected of Viz.

I've watched chunks of this show off and on over the years when it was on Adult Swim, and I can't wait to sit down and go through the whole thing *and* it have an ending!

Matchless Raijin-Oh 2nd Season Gets Subtitle-only Release
posted on 2012-06-02 22:40 EDT

The American distributor Anime Midstream announced at its panel at A-Kon on Saturday that it will release the second season of the Matchless Raijin-Oh (Zettai Muteki Raijin-Oh) television anime series. The company revealed that the second season of the show, which starts with episode 26, will be released with Japanese audio only with English subtitles. Anime Midstream has been releasing the first half of the series with both Japanese and English audio tracks.

The company noted it expects to release volume 4 in the series, which will contain episodes 16-20, on DVD in "a couple of weeks." Additionally, Anime Midstream noted it hopes to release volume 5, which will contain episodes 21-25, by the end of the summer. The company will dedicate volume 4 in the series to voice actress Cassandra Hodges, who passed away last June at the age of 28. The company also noted that it does not have the rights to release the four-episode Matchless Raijin-Oh OAV sequel series.

The company first announced its license to the 51-episode television anime series in 2009.

The company also announced at the panel that it is relocating from St. Louis, Missouri to the Dallas, Texas area.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES
“HAKUOKI”

HOUSTON, June 8, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce their acquisition of Hakuoki. Directed by Osamu Yamasaki (Yotoden, Toward the Terra), this stunning series features character designs by Atsuko Nakajima (Trinity Blood, Get Backers) and music by Ko Otani (Another, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing).

Disguised as a man, Chizuru Yukimura has come to Kyoto searching for her missing father, a doctor who developed a magical elixir that increases the drinker’s speed, strength and healing abilities. Instead of her father, however, she stumbles across a battle between the Shinsengumi and the Furies, evil vampire-like creatures of their own making. As things turn out, the Shinsengumi are also searching for her father. And when they discover who she is, they decide to take her into their custody for safe-keeping. But her sex is not the only secret Chizuru has, and as more and more Furies begin appearing in Kyoto and the situation becomes ever deadlier, the Shinsengumi may find that the Furies are the least of their problems!

Hakuoki is based on the hit video game franchise by Idea Factory and is now available in North America by Aksys Games on the Sony Playstation® Portable platform. Sentai Filmworks will release Hakuoki through select digital outlets soon with a home video release on bilingual DVD to follow.
