Bad things will probably happen
Some of you might not be aware of this, but Madoka Magica The Movie -Rebellion- hits Japanese theaters on Saturday. It's hard to believe that we finally seem to be reaching the end of this long, dark magical girl journey.&nb...
Time to get naked
Kill la Kill's third episode is about as climactic as anime can get without outright ending a series. It's a packed 24 minutes that devotes a majority of its run time to a large scale battle between the two leads, stopping on...
You probably thought I'd never write about the anime adaptation of Sword Art Online ever again.
You were wrong.
The time and date have been revealed for the upcoming Sword Art Online: Extra Edition TV special. It'll be airing...
There's no stopping the SAO train!
It should come as no surprise that Namco Bandai is eager to produce a follow up to its PSP Sword Art Online game. The release sold exceptionally well on a platform that is essentially dead, and it makes sense that they would...
Trigger going in hard
It's impressive how much TRIGGER and Aniplex have been pushing their brand new show, Kill la Kill. I don't just mean in Japan either; they've done a remarkable job of giving English speaking fans stuff to enjoy in the lead up...
Kill la Kill English Site
It's to die for, or something
I'm perhaps unreasonably hyped for Trigger's first original TV anime, Kill la Kill.
My love for their OVA Little Witch Academia knows no bounds, and the projects that the core staff worked on prior to creating Trigger are all...
Some time back, you may remember that Aniplex rescued Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann from the depths of license limbo. This meant two things: the release will come with a bunch of extra stuff and it will be pricey. Based off Sal...
Everything you wanted
Aniplex have just announced that Blue Exorcist The Movie is not only coming to home video, but you'll be able to enjoy it in glorious Blu-ray format if you choose to buy the limited box set edition. It includes the film in bo...
Kyubey is getting those papers ready.
It looks like I missed Kyubey's memo earlier during the day, but that doesn't mean that this is going to be huge! So what's this big event that's been getting me intrigued? Well, Madoka Magica the Movie III: Rebellion will be...
Public servants are serious business
At first glance, Servant x Service feels just like Working or Wagnaria, whichever you prefer. The diner comedy sports the same comedic timing common to 4koma adaptations, the same array of odd characters, and the same otaku-f...
My prayers have been answered!
Kyubey has made his verdict at Japan Expo 2013, and Madoka Magica the Movie III: Rebellion will be shown in the United States, Canada, and France! In other words, you can thank good old Sal for offering his soul to Kyubey to ...
I have a feeling that Crunchyroll has developed a new fetish for the summer season, since magical girls, dolls, and airsoft guns are joining their summer lineup. With that being said, Rozen Maiden Zuruckspulen and F...
Toei is finally adding things!
I'm not sure what the hold up was with Toei in the past, but Daisuki.net has assured us that Dragonball Z and One Piece have finally landed on Daisuki's turf. As they say, better late than never. Hopefully, this is a sign tha...
Will they get the streaming quality right?
This is going to make me into a big target, but I could never get into the Monogatari series. However, I will admit I did enjoy the relationship between Araragi and Hitagi, along with the fact that Karen made a reference to D...
From fourteen to sweet sixteen
Oh that greedy imouto! We're already approaching the end of OreImo 2's TV run, but in true "modern anime industry" fashion, there are to be several more episodes intended to round the story out at a sweet sixteen outings...
Streaming and discs to follow
Rejoice, fans of licensing acquisitions, for another one of those has happened! In a move that's sure to delight fans of the Monogatari franchise, Aniplex of America has announced their pickup of the latest two Monogata...
Something's fishy with the attackers!
The television and theatres are overrun with zombie movies nowadays. You just can't avoid 'em. Cities infested with the evil walking dead. How about a film with some evil walking fish?
You might not look at your sushi the sa...
I'm sure some of you will be pleased.
It's no secret that I didn't quite enjoy Sword Art Online. I know quite a few of you did however, so here I am with some good news.
Preorders have officially opened for Aniplex's release of Sword Art Online on BD/DVD. You can...
BEWARE THE RISE OF SKYNET
The best concert films go out of their way to replicate the experience of actually attending the filmed event. While nothing will ever nail what it was like to hear the pounding speakers and experience an event with hundreds ...
You might of heard that there is a new streaming site that has just launched out of Japan. It is being backed by some big names in the anime world like Aniplex, Sunrise, and Toei.
What could that exactly mean for you, you ask? Well, let me let Eri Maruyama (International Business Development) at DAISUKI answer that as well as many more burning questions that I had about the new service.
Taketatsu and Kanazawa will read your letters
Oreimo season 2's web radio show, hosted by Kana Hanazawa and Ayana Taketatsu, is soliciting oversea fans to write to them. One of the corners on the radio program showcases foreign fan letters, and they're asking for mo...
A new distributor is born!
[Update: It seems availability varies per-country. For example, viewers in the Philippines are currently only able to view Sunrise videos.]
This week has been a great moment for anime. First we get Anime Sols, and now Daisuki...
Bring home some little girls
Did you miss the Puella Magi Madoka Magica movies when they were in the theatre? I can gladly say that I got a chance to see the film when it swung through Chicago, but that doesn't dull any of my excitement for the home rel...
A new place for you to watch Aniplex's animes.
Even though most of Aniplex's shows are streaming in places such as Crunchyroll and Hulu, it's not stopping the company from creating their own anime streaming Website. From the looks of it, the Aniplex Channel seems to be fr...
A $549.98 Joke
It's a better alternative,
than nothing at all?
Launching preemptive mecha license!
We haven't even seen the first episode of Valvrave yet, and Aniplex USA has already used their giant licensing robot to obtain the series. Something tells me that they are hoping for Valvrave to become next big seri...
Who the hell do you think we are?!
It shouldn't be a surprise to people that the Gurren Lagann TV series would get revived by Aniplex USA, since they were the ones who licensed the two movies in North America. Knowing who the hell Aniplex is, they pl...
Will we see more showtimes in the US?
Oh snap, the contract express is still on course, and the people of Sandy, Utah are next on the list of places that will be showing the first two Madoka movies. Will this be the last that we hear from Kyubey's collaborat...
Get your Miku while she's hot.
Ever wanted to relive your experience of seeing Hatsune Miku live with her comrades in Los Angeles? Well, Aniplex is ready to let unlock the ability for consumers to pre-order Mikunopolis in Los Angeles as a limited edition B...
