November 4 2009 Anime Newsletter

Welcome to the November 4th edition of the BellaOnline Anime newsletter!

Here are the headlines to come out of the anime industry since last week's newsletter:

*Astro Boy earned an estimated $3,035,000 in its second weekend in U.S. theaters, and dropped two spots to #8 on the box office chart. With 3,020 theaters showing the film (which is an increase of six theaters from last week), Astro Boy had an estimated per-screen average of $1,005. The film has an esitmated gross-to-date of $10,891,000.

*Ponyo is being released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the United States on March 2, 2010. There will also be a limited edition 2-disc DVD and plush gift set that includes a plush doll of Ponyo.

*To commemorate the opening of the upcoming Space Battleship Yamato film in Japan, satellite network Family Gekiba will broadcast all three of the Yamato television series, as well as two previously released anime feature films. The network will also be airing an original show which will explore the historical ties behind the series. The film is scheduled to open in Japanese theaters on December 12, with a special preview at the Tokyo International Forum on November 28.

*The five main Japanese voice actresses for Sailor Moon will reunite at an event at the Akihabara UDX Theater in Tokyo on December 6 to commemorate the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Sailor Moon manga.

This week, I posted three new articles. The first is a review for My Neighbor the Yamadas. The second is a review of the Bleach Season Two DVD Box Set, and the third is a review of Hello Kitty's Paradise Volume 4. Links to all three of these articles are included later in the newsletter.
