Pok√©mon » Is Ash Ketchum going to be with Misty, May, or Dawn?

I remember liking May in my youth, but I haven't kept up with the series recently.

Samurai Champloo » Hip hop producer Jun Seba (aka Nujabes) died

You may remember Nujabes' work from Samurai Champloo. An official statement was made saying that he died late February in a car accident. You can read more about it here:

I haven't really watched much anime lately, but I used to watch Samurai Champloo regularly on Adut Swim years ago. Unfortunate to hear that he died.

General Discussion » Hong Kong studio Imagi shut down

Link!
 
 

Imagi International Holdings Ltd. said in a statement to the Hong Kong stock exchange that it stopped funding its computer animation studio on Feb. 5 "to further preserve its limited liquidity and shareholder value." The studio will ask a Hong Kong court to name liquidators, the statement issued Monday said.

But Imagi said it will continue to develop movie ideas and outsource the actual animation work to mainland China and other countries, where costs are lower.

Uh, I'm no economist, but this is bad, right? I'm pretty sad to hear this news, but apparently I was one of the few people who went to go see Astro Boy. I wonder what this means for the planned Gatchaman film that was in the works. The company being shut down only makes me want to buy the Blu Ray release of Astro Boy when it is released.

General Discussion » IGN's top 25 Anime characters of all time

The list definitely feels more like the "25 most popular mainstream anime characters". This doesn't surprise me though, since most lists are popularity contests.

General Discussion » IGN's top 25 Anime characters of all time

IGN published a list a few days ago on the top 25 Anime characters. Despite what your opinion of the site may be, I still think it's worth a look. Agree? Disagree? Most of the characters are pretty mainstream actually.

I figured the question would be more appropriate here than @ giantbomb.

Blood: The Last Vampire » Conan O'Brien dubs anime again - Blood: Last Vampire

Yeah, it looks like this may become a recurring skit. I wonder what other franchises they'll cover in the future that Bang Zoom! Entertainment would allow.
