Section23 announces anime release dates for March by Ben Huber
Sometimes I don't know what to do with all the press releases in my inbox! Luckily, Section23's announcement of release dates is sparkly & fresh and caught my eye! Their latest listing of upcoming anime for March features a pretty big variety of titles, from the recently announced Nadia to Maria Holic Alive! to Mardock Scramble Third Exhaust. Nadia in particular is slated for March 4th, so you won't have to wait long at all!
This is only the March lineup, so don't get too concerned if you don't see a certain show here. If you want all the details though, they're right below. Here's the full list of the rest of the release dates and titles:
Anyone remembers Myself; Yourself? This 2007 title was memorable for me not only because of the semicolon-laden title, but also because it is surprisingly cogent for a bishoujo video game adaptation. Having the scenario write...
Don't you just love it when announcements related to your past come back in a joyous form. For today's reminiscence, the first time that I got to watch Patlabor on Televison was when I watched bits an...
Back when I lived in Houston, I was given the chance to catch Black Magic M-66 on Action Channel when I was hanging out at a friends place. From what I remember about my experience with the OVA, it was an intense story where ...
Sentai/Section23/Whatever the hell you want to call them dropped the news they've got a few new shows coming our way. The first, Tegami Bachi: Reverse, is a 25-episode sequel to Tegami Bachi that Sentai plans to release ...
Since it's Halloween, I figured I'd do a write up on one of my favorite shows that just so happens to fit in with the horror spirit, the violent classic Elfen Lied. However, let me give you a bit of context.
Fall 2004 was a pretty good time in my life. I just got my DS, I was having a helluva time at college and, more importantly, finally started going to my university's anime club. Through that venue, I learned about dozens of shows that I would eventually watch and, in some cases, bond with the people that lit my nerdy path. One name that I heard mentioned often was Elfen Lied, though every time it was said a derisive laugh would follow and the assertion that there was no way in hell it would be shown at my university. I figured it had something to do with the overall quality of the show, so I let it slip from my mind and went about watching what was onscreen.
Little did I know that was missing one of the most violent and surprisingly emotional shows out there. Granted, I don't expect everybody to have the same feelings for it that I do, but Elfen Lied is one of my favorite shows and I think that it should be a must see. That is, if you can stomach the gore. Hit the jump to find out more.
Ergo Proxy is an anime I've enjoyed since it first aired, and I was more than willing to grab this review when it came up. Thanks to FUNimation, Ergo Proxy (previously licensed by Geneon) has been rescued and re-released in full as a Classics DVD box set.
Ergo Proxy follows the story of Re-l (or Real) Mayer and Vincent Law as they uncover truths about their existence. Re-l lives in Romdo, a domed city attempting to keep humanity going as they wait for the devastated Earth to become inhabitable again. In Romdo, everyone has an Entourage (a companion robot). Suddenly, they start contracting this virus, called cogito, and become self aware. As mysteries mount, and Vincent seems to be in the middle of it all, Re-l ventures outside her domed city's walls.

Sentai Filmworks is at it again -- licensing yet another Makoto Shinkai property. Back in the days of ADV Films, the company licensed 5 Centimeters Per Second and Voices of A Distant Star, so it's no huge surprise that t...
Sentai Filmwork's Section 23 division has just revealed their official list of releases for the month of July. Among new additions to their line-up are the comedies Needless and Mahoromatic, the second box set of Book of Bantorra,Hidamari Sketch Specials, and Clannad: After Story. Also coming soon are the live-action martial arts film The Kunoichi --staring Rina Takeda, and the racy erotic thriller The Devil's Feast.
Is anyone in the mood to watch a space harem? fantastic! Section 23 announced today that Infinite Stratos: The Complete Collection is now available for sale in both Blu-Ray and DVD. The boxset features all 12 episode of the show, the OVA, English and Japanese audio, special features, and a bonus soundtrack CD.
Are you wondering what exactly these special features are? I was too, I did some research on them because I absolutely hate incomplete press releases. The box set comes with a behind-the-scenes interview with director Yatsuhiro Kikuchi, episode commentary with Japanese voice actresses, clean opening and closing animations, a feature called "Radio IS"--presumably a music playlist of some sort, and a handful of Sentai Filmworks trailers.
According to Section 23's press release, the suggested price for the Blu-Ray boxset is $69.98, but if you have an Amazon Prime account, you can grab it right now for just $39.99. You're welcome!
If you've been looking for a new show to watch but don't want to get committed, then this might be something that interests you! The guys over at Section23 have released a double pack of the OVAs Coicent (previously know...
