Greetings Anime Vice Community, we sure have had a nice end to our drought of news for this week. A lot of good articles have been appearing on the front page, and I'm rather proud to of played a role in making a fair few of them. Last week's topic of the Strongest Women of Anime sure got a lot of attention and got people talking. Even seemed to get some new members involved. FUNimation announced they have aquired the rights to Fairy Tail and gave us a sample of some of the dub cast for the Fall 2011 release. We might even get to hear more about this and other news when Tom and Geo go to the Anime Expo next month. Tom's Watch & Learn article series have expanded from Mushi-Shi to add [C] - Control.
In some rather big anime news, on the 22nd the final episode of Black Lagoon Roberta's Blood Trail was released in Japan. I was able to check out the final episode, and to say that was graphic would be a severe understatement. It looks as if they changed some of the ending from the manga version. That's another series FUNi has talked about for a 2011 release, but they made that announcement before those production delays pushed several releases a few months back. Tom also talked about the Gatchaman Movie being suspended. In all honesty, I didn't know it was being made in the first place.
Next week Highschool of the Dead will be released on DVD & Blu-ray. Is anyone else already made their pre-orders? I've been spotting even lower price drops than what was reported a few weeks back.
