Last week, FUNimation began hosting the first two English dubbed episodes of PANTY & STOCKING on their website for free and completely uncensored. You can watch these episodes on their website FUNimation Video HERE. Since this content is rates as mature, you may have to register an account with FUNimation first, but a standard account is free. I've watched these two full episodes, and it really seems as if they had some fun dubbing this anime.

The entire series is available for pre-order on both Rightstuf,com and Amazon.com. Rightstuf is offering a limited time gift for pre-orders of a replica Heaven Coin for pre-orders. It's a while supplies last kind of deal, so, get in on that while they're available.

Good Memorial Day Anime Vice! I know many of you do not celebrate today and are not American, but I think today is a day to remember everyone who has fought and died and is still fighting, no matter where you are from. Anyway, I have a new, and shorter, episode of Dunce Cap for y'all! Today's episode is about FUNimation's Blu-ray release of Gainax's zany brainchild, Fooly Cooly aka FLCL!!

Yo yo yo Anime Vice! Wasting no time, I have another "Dunce Cap" episode for y'all. While this video might deter a number of you by its length (at 26 min it's the longest Dunce Cap to date), I assure you that there is little downtime in my thoughts. Besides, if the above title is any hint, you can't blame me for having a lot to say. Enough chit-chat for now. Here are my thoughts on FUNimation's Blu-ray release of Evangelion 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance!!

I read a couple articles on ANN today and there were some exciting ones. 

First off, Asobi ni Ikuyo got an OVA green-lit. It will include some sort of rpg-style story where everything goes right for the characters. Also, there is going to be "unairable" content (which why I can't wait to see and hope it's not edited). 

And secondly, Angel Beats! is getting an alternate final episode (project was recently green-lit). No word as to what the episode will contain but surely it will be nothing less than spectacular as the series was amazing. 

Lastly, an animated project has been put into motion by an agreement between Gainax and Subaru (the automaker). Nothing has been revealed as to what the project will include but I am curious as to what Gainax and Subara have to gain by partnering up. 

Well AV, do any of these sound interesting?

I had to improvise a way to photograph my newest toy. Time to throw away those worthless 1.01 discs! 
 
Note: We have both Blu-ray and DVD copies, we probably won't scrutinize them too thoroughly, but if you've got any format specific questions, feel free to hollar.
