Us anime-market leader FUNimation is currently having a “roll-out riot” and is announcing more and more titles for the upcoming months. Yesterday they announced the Us release of Kamui Gaiden and RoboGeisha on their official blog, but without mentioning a specific date or medium.
Today, after some rumbling of disappointed fans who expected more fine animation from Japan, they surprised them by announcing the acquirement of the Ova series Flcl
) for a DVD and Blu-ray Disc release in late 2010. The series was produced by Production I.G, Gainax and Starchild in 2000 and was directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki
(Gunbuster, Rebuild of Evangelion 1.0 & 2.0).
Because of the way the six episodes of Flcl
were produced, this will most likely be another upscale, so looking at FUNimation’s recent releases I’ll wait for proper reviews before ordering this…even thou I don’t own the series on DVD yet.
