But on to the rest of today's news!
- Did you remember that TOKYOPOP did anime? Or rather, does-- they've announced a new box set of Rave Master, if you can imagine that-- the last time any of Rave Master's anime came out was in '05. (There are also currently three copies for $5, rather than TPOP's SRP of $39.99, on Amazon right now.)
- The Gonzo Watch continues! The company WILL have a booth at TAF, which, combined with the Super Street Fighter IV: Juri news and trailer, tells me that the company is definitely not completely shutting down any time VERY soon.
- Ever wonder how to get the rights to screen anime? Well, if you're having trouble getting them from one of the anime studios, you can get some of the bigger names via a company called Swank. I got an anonymous tip that linked me to a list of titles (anime and not) available for screening licenses, including the Cowboy Bebop flick (the anime one, not the upcoming live-action, obviously), The Cat Returns, Howl's Moving Castle, and other big names-- but probably for a fee. But I thought it was kinda cool anyway. Maybe we could screen something at Whiskey Media!
- Aaaaand InuYasha is now available on iTunes dubbed in its entirety. Well, you know, the original series, not the new one. Enjoy!
- Got a spare ¥22,000 (just under $250 USD) handy? You could score some sweet framed art from Nana! (Via Tanbishugi.)
- Finally, if you're trying to get some crash space for MTAC Odyssey in Nashville, the con has opened up some overflow rooms at the Embassy Suites Nashville Airport. Play that country music!
Whew. The day flew by so fast and yet I'm exhausted. Time to go home and snuggle up with some Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone on Blu-Ray. What are YOU watching tonight?
