A couple of different rumors on the Internet this morning. In BOTH cases, these are completely unconfirmed. I have e-mails out to VIZ and Kodansha about them, so if I'm given any additional information, I'll pass it on to you as soon as I can. Now, on to the rumors!


FanboyReview reports that the second Bleach movie, DiamondDust Rebellion, is currently in the process of being dubbed. Now, FanboyReview was behind the word that Bandai had the license to 5 Centimeters per Second, which turned out to be not true-- but they were definitely correct about the film being dubbed, since the dub was later released on Crunchyroll for Shinkai Day. So don't hold that against them, 'k? Besides, VIZ getting a Bleach movie is about as outlandish as, um, something terribly in-landish. So, I'm going to grant this one a very high probability of truth.


Next up, Kodansha. You probably remember all the hubbub over the rumors that Kodansha was going to move into publishing manga directly in the USA-- prompting some to panic that Del Rey Manga, who has a licensing deal with Kodansha, would die a horrible death of flames and locusts or something. That turned out to be true (the Kodansha publishing manga in the US part, not Del Rey's death, thank god!), but the latest in the rumor-fest is that the plans are on hold due to everyone's economic troubles. That...sounds pretty probable, too.


I'll let you know if I get any confirmation, denials, or other commentary from either company!
