ACEN 2007: Funimation Industry Panel


Funimation had a lot to show us yesterday at their industry panel. We were graced with the first images of their School Rumble box set, which just so happens to be a yellow locker. This locker can be decorated with magnets that come with every volume of School Rumble. You can expect this one to hit the streets on the 21st of August. Speaking of box sets, the Beck box set takes the form of an amp and comes with a sheet of reusable stickers. Not only that but a guitar pick and a music video comes with each volume. And don’t you worry, the songs are in English and Japanese. The release date is the 10th of July. Right now they are recording all of the ‘B’ roll for the new One Piece dub; which are the thugs, civilians, or the people who just have one line and leave. The main cast is currently in the process of being created; much like the straw hat crew themselves. They will start on episode 144 (105 English) and go on from there. Funimation will pick up the movies depending on how well the sales for television series goes. The biggest announcement was that Funimation has licensed Black Blood Brothers, a vampire-action show from 2006.
