March 10 2010 Anime Newsletter

Welcome to the March 10th edition of the BellaOnline Anime newsletter!

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

*Tokyopop is releasing all 51 episodes of the English dub of Rave Master on an on-demand basis through CreateSpace. The episodes will be available in DVD-R format, and will retail for US$39.99.

*FUNimation has announced that it has licensed the series Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts and Dance in the Vampire Bund from Media Factory. FUNimation is simulcasting both series with English subtitles within days of the Japanese broadcast; the simulcasts started on Friday, March 5, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. CST. FUNimation has released a statement at Anime News Network, saying that edits will be made to Dance in the Vampire Bund due to "controversial elements which, when taken out of context, could be objectionable to some audiences." FUNimation also says in the statement that they have acquired the approval of the licensor to make the edits to the series.

There are topics in the anime forum for these news stories. If you'd like to join in on the discussion, there's a link to the forum later in the newsletter. You need to have a BellaOnline forum account in order to post, but signing up for a forum account is free.

This week, I posted two new articles to the Anime site. The first is an overview article for the classic anime franchise, Lupin III. The other is a review of the Lupin III film, The Castle of Cagliostro (which was the first feature film directed by Hayao Miyazaki). I also added words related to the Lupin III franchise to the list for the Anime word games.

Thank you for your support of the BellaOnline Anime site, newsletter, and forum. Be sure to watch your inbox next Wednesday for the March 17th edition of the BellaOnline Anime newsletter.
