We’ve been getting lots of emails about the Fist of the North Star TV series. Yes we will finish the series all the way until episode 152. We hope to release the 3rd box in July. And then the 4th box in September or October. These will be English subbed.

Also the Galaxy Express 999 movies should both come out in June. When the dates are official we will post them here. They will both have the English subbed version and the English dubbed versions.

The next titles released will be:

4/19/11

Aquarian Age Juvenile Orion live action movie (English subbed)

Princess Blade live action (will be 16:9 for the first time in the US, English sub and dub)

5/17/11

Project A-ko (remastered, english subbed and dubbed)

Dead or Alive (Takashi Miike’s awesome live action movie! English subbed)

Huh? Under the header for the post, it's about the "More info" on the Kanokon boxset. The specs were unknown before, especially for the added animated shorts and OVA series. It's brand new information.

Funimation Changes Ga-Rei Zero / Eden of the East Movie to DVD/BD Combo Sets

Funi just sent over another memo about an hour ago letting us know that they have changed the release format of both Ga-Rei Zero and the Eden of the East Movie.

Instead of the previously announced separate DVD and BD releases, Funi will be combining both versions into DVD/BD combo sets.

So...

Ga-Rei Zero Complete Collection DVD (Eps #1-12)
Ga-Rei Zero Complete Colelction DVD (Eps #1-12) (BLURAY)

now becomes the:

FN-08880 Ga-Rei Zero Complete Collection DVD / BLURAY Combo Set (Eps #1-12)

Eden of the East Movie 1: King of Eden DVD
Eden of the East Movie 1: King of Eden DVD (BLURAY)

now becomes the:

FN-08843 Eden of the East Movie 1: King of Eden DVD / BLURAY Combo Set

The price for the new combo sets is the same as for the previous versions, and all existing pre-orders for these will be updated to the new combo set version. No action is required on your part.

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2011 Edition

In regards to the Guin Saga BD release by Sentai Filmworks | via ANN
The North American anime distributor Section23 Films notified retailers on Monday that the Guin Saga Blu-ray Edition scheduled for March 29 "has been postponed indefinitely due to circumstances beyond our control." The first DVD collection of the heroic fantasy anime remains unaffected by this announcement and will ship on March 29 as scheduled. Section23 asked retailers to delete the Guin Saga Collection 1 Blu-ray Edition from their databases.

New updates. Hero Tales, Part 1 regular edition has a different release date as the Part 1 LE and Part 2 (edit: note anymore). Rideback: Complete Collection (LE) is delayed once more.

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2011 Edition

Can someone tell me about the Blu-Ray set of FLCL? I've read from a number of places that FLCL was originally a SD anime, so what will that mean for the blu-ray set? Are they just going to upconvert it? Should I just get the DVD set?

It's an upscale. It remains to be seen if the FUNi release will be better than the Japanese release.

This quote will explain better than I can.
The reviews are bad because instead of just doing a straight upscale, they used what's called "Q-tec upscaling technology" on it. What that actually is, is they basically sharpen the hell out of it and apply DNR which causes detail to be blurred out and the edges of everything looks warped as the screenshot Chiyo_chichi linked to clearly shows. That crap looks so awful.

The big difference from the YouTube version and the DVD & Blu-ray feature film version is that the feature film contains uncensored original scenes, including bloody graphics for a realistic shooting scene experience that were voluntarily cut for YouTube. As a bonus feature, we have also included commentaries on the action scenes by our tactical advisor, and interviews with the production staff.
