August 15, 2010

Hello and greetings fellow Otaku,

Now for those of you who are wondering when Adult Swim will be airing new episodes of the popular anime series Bleach, well have I got some good news for you.

Now back in March I mentioned that Adult Swim would not be airing any new episodes of Bleach starting in April, so for over the past four months all you have been able to see were re-runs of the first eight seasons. Now while this was good for those of us who have never seen the series before, hard core fans of the series have been dying to know when are new episodes coming. Well if you were watching Adult swim last night, you may have seen an on screen bump stating that new episodes will be airing starting August 28.

Now this is all well and good, but you probably thinking to yourselves what is going to happen to the rest of the schedule. Well here is a look at what’s in store for the anime block starting August 28.

Adult Swim Saturday Night Anime Block (8/28/2010)

12:00 AM-Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (Repeat Episode (Ep.3))

12:30 AM-Kekkaishi (New Episode (Ep.14))

1:00 AM-Bleach (New Episode (Ep.168*))

1:30 AM-Inuyasha (Repeat Episode (Ep.1))

2:00 AM-Cowboy Bebop (Repeat Episode (Ep.3))

2:30 AM-Cowboy Bebop (Repeat Episode (Ep.4))

3:00 AM-Ghost In The Shell (Repeat Episode (Ep.6))

3:30 AM-Ghost In The Shell (Repeat Episode (Ep.7))

4:00 AM-Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (Encore Pres (Ep.3))

4:30 AM-Kekkaishi (Encore Pres (Ep.14))

5:00 AM-Bleach (Encore Pres (Ep.168*))

5:30 AM-Inuyasha (Encore Pres (Ep.1))

*Beginning of season 9 story arc (The New Captain Shusuke Amagai)

So overall the schedule will pretty much remain the same with the exception that Inuyasha will be replacing the second episode of Bleach at 1:30 and 5:30AM and FMA:Brotherhood will be on hiatus until further notice in which the forst twenty-six episodes of the series will be repeated in its entirety.

It is also understood that Bleach will be taking over the 12:00AM time slot that FMA:Brotherhood has occupied since February and that episodes of King Of The Hill and The Boondocks will be taking over the 2:00 and 3:00AM time slots from Cowboy Bebop and Ghost In The Shell. Currently their is no word as to when these changes are taking place.

As always we will keep you posted on further developments on this breaking story as they become available. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.


Afc News Update-Haruhi Release Date Announced and Dude Gets Caught Taping Geek Squad Van!!!!!

June 13, 2010

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now a while back I mentioned that Bandai Entertainment was going to re-release The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in a complete collection box set which includes both season one and season two episodes. Well Bandai announced about two months ago that the new box set is set to be released on July 6,2010. Now guys, I would like to apologize for not telling you guys about this a few weeks ago but this was around the time that I was getting ready for final exams. Hopefully, I will try not to forget to tell you guys about these important release dates again.

GeekSquad

And on an un-related note, about a few days ago a guy was pulled over by a policeman for video taping a Geek Squad van in which he planed to make a parody video of him acting like one of the reps responding to a call. Originally the Geek Squad employee who was being secretly video taped was planning to press charges against the guy taping the van, but the officer let him go with a charge of reckless driving in which he was given a ticket.

Now I don’t know how you guys feel about this, but I personally feel that this guy got what he deserved. Thankfully he avoided getting sued, but in all honesty he shouldn’t have been taping while behind a wheel. One it is dangerous to do so and two, he could have gotten killed for doing this. But anyway, check out the original video and the follow-up and form your own judgments. And until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now as we mentioned last week Funimation Entertainment’s parent company Navarre Corporation announced plans to sell the popular anime distribution company. Today, Navarre released its fourth quarter financial results for the 2010 fiscal year.

The company reported a fifteen percent drop in net sales in the fourth quarter in which the company brought 18.8 million U.S. dollars in sales. The software division increased over fifty percent while Funimation’s net sales declined for the second quarter in a row due to a weak release schedule. The company has plans to refer Funimation as a discontinued operation once a deal has been made. However Funimation will still be functioning as normal. No further details have been announced as to when the sale will occur.
