More Code Geass Incomming

More Code Geass is a good thing too me. I enjoyed the first 2 seasons, and the manga is alright. Plus, I  love CLAMP character designs even if the people are noodle armed.

Code Geass Anime: Gaiden Boukoku no Akito is the name of the new title. It takes place 7 years after the first season and apparently some shit went down that caused Lelouch’s hope for world peace didn’t happen. So, some people from Area 11 (Japan) are on a mission with only a 5%. Seems like they are pretty much screwed.

Currently there is no release date or details about whether it is an anime or manga. I am hoping for an anime since I don’t read a whole lot of manga. Also, I hope Lelouch comes back since I believe he is still alive even with that ending.


Gurren Lagann Films Coming This July From Aniplex USA

Well, we now have the Gurren Lagann  movies up for pre-order exclusively from Bandai’s store online. But that is fine by me since I have been wanting to get this for a while.

The movies are re-tellings of the show with new footage. Typical for a Japanese anime movie based on a popular title that isn’t a shonen one. Some of these movies are good, some aren’t, but fans will buy them anyways.

Currently, the first one is set for release on July 1st with the second one coming out July 30th. So both in the same month.

If you are looking to pre-rder them, the links are below.

Bandai Get’s Code Geass: Knights and Queens Manga

Hey look, some more Code Geass stuff is coming to the United States. This time we get Knights, a manga anthology thing that focuses on the boys of Code Geass (Fanservice for the ladies) and Queens the one that focuses on the girls (fanservice for the guys). Well, I know which one I want since it will have C.C. in it. But I will probably end up getting all of them eventually.

Currently, Knights is set to start releasing in May and Queens for June. So not a long wait, but there will be a wait.


Strike Witches Episodes 1 and 2 Dubbed Posted

If you want to see the episodes, you can watch them here.

I haven’t watched any of them yet, but  I plan to later tonight, so I will update this post with my thoughts on the Dub later on. But  I am hoping for a decent one considering they seem to be pushing Strike Witches more than some shows.

I Wouldn’t mind Seeing This Movie If Someone Really Were To Make It

I don’t remember if I posted this or not, but it still makes me laugh when I watch it.

Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya Announced

Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya was announced, but it is a manga about a boy with a mechanical arm that can shoot throwing stars out. But, at least CC is still in it, along with some guy who looks kinda like Lelouch.

Currently set for release in 2010, I expect it too sell pretty well and be out in the US not to long after.

They have stated that there will be other manga and probably an anime announced later on as the rebirth of Geass is a project that encompasses multiple things.

I think I will watch my Code Geass DVDs now since I am getting more pumped for new Code Geass material.

Code Geass Returning!

This picture alone shows that Zero is returning, stating that a new Code Geass project has been green-lit for production and more information will come out in 2010.According to the image, it is more or less a rebirth, so it may be based on one of the alternate reality manga, a sequel to the original anime, or even a whole new story all together.

More CC should be included too, which makes it so much better. Maybe even some Kallen if she is blowing stuff up still. Lelouch will definitely be back since he is a total bad ass.

If you want to see the image for yourself go here. It’s even signed by Zero.

Gonzo Being Replaced By AIC For Strike Witches 2

Gonzo must have made someone made or just refused to do the second season since they got replaced for seemingly no reason all of a sudden. AIC will be taking over from here on out for animation.

Not that AIC is bad, they have a decent amount of good titles under their belt ranging from Now and Then, Here and There to more recently, Nyan Koi!. So there should be some good quality animation with the second season.

Currently, the rest of the staff will still be the same, with the same director and so forth. So really, the only thing changed will be animation style.



Mini-Skirt Uchū Kaizoku Anime Coming In 2011

Mini-Skirt Uchū Kaizoku (Mini-Skirt Space Pirates) will be getting an anime in 2011.The first thing I thought of though when I read the titles was porn. Seriously, it sounds like it would be some kind of pirate based porn. Mini-skirts? Pirates don’t where those unless they want to be sexy.

The story is about Marika, a high school girl in space who is all of a sudden confronted by some guys who were supposedly working for her father on this ship before he died. Well, they want her to be the captain since we all know teenage girls have the credentials to command a pirate space frigate. And there is a war or something.

Interesting, but does it sound good? Well, if there are mechs, then I will probably watch it. Mecha based anime tends to get my attention pretty easily.


Awesome Transformers X Lucky☆Star Video

I found this on Japanator today and couldn’t help but post it again. Even though I don’t watch Transformers stuff a lot, this still was awesome since it had Lucky☆Star related stuff as the base.

Gundam Unicorm Japanese Blu-Ray To Have English Dub

l_gundam_unicornAre you wanting to get the new Gundam Unicorn OVA before all your friends? If so, be prepared to put down a decent amount of money for it. On March 12th, the Japanese Blu-Ray release comes out and it will have English and Japanese Dubs, along with subs in multiple other languages.

Nice move in my opinion since it allows for more people to watch it earlier. I might even import it if I have the probably $80 for the price.


Uncensored Strikes Witches Episodes 3 and 4 Streaming Now

strikewitches01Well, this is a surprise. Strikes Witches is uncensored on FUNimations web site. A bold move considering how people are with this stuff.

IS this a new hope in the anime industry? Are licensees going to do what others thought they wouldn’t? I surely hope so, as it will possibly lead to the license of one of my favorite series ever, Kodomo no Jikan.

If you want to see the episodes, just go here, and watch to your hearts delight.

The rating is TV-MA, so no one under 17 is supposed to be watching without parental permission, but it’s not like that will stop most from watching. Though, I get the feeling there aren’t to many people under the age of 17 that even know about Strike Witches.

The current release date for the DVD set is early 2010, so not much longer until it comes out.


Gundam Unicorn 1 To Be 1 Hour Long

l_gundam_unicornWell, I guess Gundam Unicorn won’t be a normal TV series, but instead, a series of OVA probably.

Today, Harutoshi Fukui stated in an interview that the first “episode” would be 1 hour long and encompass the first 2 novels. He is hoping to incorporate as many scenes from the novel as he possibly can to please fans, but also add new content also.

Currently, no release date is set, but expect a world wide release this winter.
