Now this is something that I would love to get behind, since Anime Sols is going to not only going to stream anime titles, but they are also giving users the power to donate money to help their favorite titles get a home release, along with other types of merchandise.
For their first set of shows, Anime Sols has obtained two Tatsunoko shows, a Tetsuka series, and a magical girl show. So if you enjoyed these shows in the past, now you can get the chance to make a home release possible for the original Tekkaman, Yatterman 2008, Tesuka's Bander Book, and Creamy Mami the Magical Angel.
As for those that are not familiar with these titles, Tekkaman involves a battle against evil aliens as mankind is on an expedition to search for a new planet to inhabit. Bander Book tells the tale of an Earthing that was raised by aliens. Creamy Mami is a space/idol themed show with a young girl that can change into a teenage form at the price of keeping her identity a secret. Yatterman 2008 is simply a story about two heroes that fight with silly weapons and robot animals against the evil Doronjo, who seems to have issues with wardrobe malfunctions after being defeated in battle.
Out of the four shows they picked so far, I'm curious to check out the new Yatterman series, since the two main characters were fun to use in Tatsunoko vs Capcom Ultimate All Stars. I also heard that the show was silly, so that's another reason for me to give it a go.
Depending on how good Anime Sols does, we might see other companies team up with Anime Sols to see if there's a market for certain titles that most would consider a risky investment. All in all, I wish them the best when 2013 knocks on our doorsteps.
