A Daily Dose of Anime: The show that made us fall in love

Remember when you first started watching anime? Perhaps your friends in high school or college were whispering about some incredibly provocative show, or swapping bad copies of VHS tapes behind the bleachers. Maybe you had caught a few sho...

Break Out: Media Blasters nabs the first two SRW animes

For once, this isn't the type of Super Robot Wars news that I was looking forward to. But on the bright side, Media Blasters has rescued Super Robot Wars: Original Generation: The Animation and Super Robot Wars Original ...

Media Blasters in financial trouble with New York State

Things have been a little fishy with Media Blasters lately. They had to cancel the rerelease of Record of Lodoss War, and they didn't get the license for Queen's Blade Rebellion like they did with the previous series. Right Stuf also recent...


Media Blasters will not rerelease Record of Lodoss War

Back in 2010, there was much rejoicing when Media Blasters announced that they had acquired the license for a rerelease of Record of Lodoss War. And then, there was a whole lot of nothing. It's been two years and the rerelease still isn't o...

Uh-oh: Media Blasters cuts 60% of its staff

Eeek! Just as Bandai (and Europe's Beez) bowed out of the physical distribution scene, it seems like even more companies are tightening their belts. Media Blasters, fourteen-year veteran of the industry and publisher of such iconic titles a...

Rejoice! Kite film remake is "groundbreaking" & "not 3D"

Earlier this week, I posted up a news story about the new live-action Kite adaption being manned by director of Shark Night 3D and Snakes on a Plane fame David R. Ellis. If anything, I was just a bit skeptical on this adaption being somethi...

Set blood to 'hot'! Media Blasters grabs Mazinkaiser SKL

Are the giant robot stylings of this season's Super Robot Wars anime not MANLY enough for your tastes? You want that frosted-hair pansy in Alt Eisen to get a proper ass-kicking for not being MANLY enough?Then you're in luck, because your fr...


Media Blasters can't seem to quit yaoi manga

AnimeonDVD caught a tweet from the Media Blasters folks, citing that they're returning to the yaoi manga game in 2011, and that after New Year's, they'll be announcing their full lineup. Hooray, more boy's love! But what does that mean for ...


Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit rescued, taken to Bluray

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit was pretty good, for what I saw of it. Out in the days of Lucky Star, it was a reasonably serious anime (unlike Lucky Star) under the aegis of Production I.G. and the direction of Kenji Kamiyama (a.k.a. the ...


Media Blasters cancels some DVDs

To be specific, Media Blasters is canceling Kanokon DVD volumes #2 and #3. The company made the surprise (and unfortunate) announcement via their Twitter on Thursday afternoon. But there's still hope. While Media Blasters has stat...

Media Blasters going with box sets for future releases

Business is tough in the anime industry. What with the lean economy and the whole thing with the anime bubble bursting, publishers everywhere that don't have their claws in some kind of sure-win property are scrambling to adapt their busine...


Media Blasters cuts staff by nearly 25%, rescheds titles

While the manga business seems to be growing to allow more competitors in, the anime front is seeing more troubled times. Starting last Friday, anime/manga licensor and distributor Media Blasters had to lay off or furlough (send on a tempor...


Media Blasters is bringing back Record of Lodoss War!

Well, all I know is, when I watched Record of Lodoss War back in the deliciously awesome anime years of the nineties, Deedlit did not look like THAT. I mean, she was hot, but good lord ... talk about an upgrade. Anyway, we heard word via Ot...


Media Blasters announces Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei for May

The licensing of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei has been something that's been rumored for a while now (and Media Blasters wasn't talking), but we can finally put that to rest: Media Blasters has officially announced that Volume 1 of SZS is being...


Moribito returns to Adult Swim!

Of course, the panel that I decide not to go to, the Media Blasters’ industry panel, is the only one with an important announcement; just my luck. Anyways, otaku freedom fighter Nebs did go to the panel, and told the world that Media ...

Otakon '08: Blast off with Media Blasters

Same room as FUNi, minutes later. Len is complaining because Dale didn't lambast the Ouran Host Club trailer. The death of panels are people without the ability to articulate english phrases, but these guys are hilarious. Senior graphic de...

If you've been following Alteil recently, then you'll be happy to know of this little brief that Media Blasters dropped in our mailbox: the site is set to fully open Friday, July 11th. The online card game has been a point of pride for Med...


AnimeNEXT 08: Media Blasters panel

I'll admit -- the Media Blasters panel was a little less than exciting this year. They don't do panels all that often, and so to do this one, and repeatedly say that you've got no acquisitions to announce, why hold the panel at all?There wa...
