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.

Spice and Wolf II, Eden Of The East Movies, And Chobits Licensed By FUNimation

Well, not too long ago today, FUNi announced 3 more acquisitions. Spice and Wolf II, Eden of the East movies, and Chobits (rescue) were all licensed.

Currently, they are all set for release in 2011 on DVD and BluRay.

Damn, even  a year long wait for a rescued title? FUNi is seriously going to have to start speeding up since Sentai is so fast and is becoming more and more popular.

Eden of The East the Movie II: Paradise Lost Trailer Posted

The second movies trailer is now up after the movie being delayed to add in an extra 30 minutes of footage.

Here is the link to the trailer for all to watch it.

I know the first movie was a retelling of the series, but I am not sure if the second is a continuation of that or if it is a proper sequel. I guess we will find out soon enough though since the movie starts showing in Japanese theaters on March 13, 2010.

Every passing day I grow more and more impatient for this movie. Eureka, my dear, please find a way to release earlier than Feb. 9, why not tomorrow?

Eden Of The East’s Second Movie Delayed By 2 Months

The second movie has been delayed to March 2010 for production reasons. They are adding 30 minutes to it so the story is expanded allowing for better quality.

The first movie is still on track for this Saturday in Japan.

FUNimation will probably get these movies sometime next year since they announced that they had licensed the original anime back at Otakon this year.

New Eden Of The East Trailer Posted

eden of the eastThe new trailer can be seen right here.

Currently, the first movie is set to release in Japanese theaters on December 19, 2009. The second is January 9, 2010. So, based on that, I say it’s safe to assume the first 2 will be retellings, and the 3rd will be totally new stuff.

FUNimation licensed the TV series earlier this year, and I would like them to hurry up and release it so I can finish. I got 5 episodes in when they licensed it, and since i like to support anime unlike some ass hats, I will be waiting to buy it.
