Yeah it's out in November. I think it's made by the same people that done Dynasty Warriors actually.

I'll be picking it up once its out, Ive read somewhere that its going to be download only in america. Something to do with the game only being Subbed.

Hope we get a physical copy.


 

I think the Japanese VA is a lot better too, so I really don't mind it being sub only.

Yeah there will be a physical copy. You see the box art at the end of the trailer.

 

English trailer is here if you want ot see.

I dont think the Funimation Dubs are that bad. Not as good as the Japanese Audio, but when is a american Dub ever better than the Japanese, too few different voice actors.

But its better than the 4Kidz Dub.



The Funimation dubs are pretty good, especially the resent FMA: Brotherhood ones compared to the original anime they also did.

Speaking of nostalgia.

I've been scrolling through all the different animation boxsets on PLAY.com and I found all sorts of amazing things like Animaniacs, Inspector Gadget, Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles etc.

It doesn't sound all that bad. I think they nailed Garterbelts voice perfectly.

 

I think I'll always have a soft spot for old cartoons like Freakazoid and The Street Sharks, I mean old shows like those are my goddamn childhood right there!

I'm so happy I could bum you.  :D

First of all for the trailer- it's got "just right" written all over it.  Second of all, for mentioning Freakazoid.  F*****G FREAKAZOID!  :D

Going to be watching some Full Metal Panic FUMOFFU tonight, I finally bought the missing volume I was missing from years ago!

But anyway, Freakazoid is awesome! Especially that episode with Candle Ja-

The hotspring one was the one I got, I really enjoyed it. I feel kind of conned in the long run though because I paid £20 for the other 3 volumes whereas I only paid £2 for it on PLAY.com.

Summer is looking kind of bland for decent anime actually aswell.

Has anyone been watching Legend of Korra? Its actually pretty amazing. Its almost nearing the end of its season and I've got to hand it to the guys who made it. they have done a fine job. I really wish more western animation companys would take note and make more shows with deeper plots to them than "Herp Derp, the bad guy is bad! Derp".

I've been scrolling through PLAY.com again and I noticed they have a lot of Dragon Ball Z boxsets coming out in the next few months or so. You get like 40 episodes per boxset it seems which is a good plan because lets face it, later on bugger all happens half the time except screaming at each other.

40 eps?  Dang, that's a pretty fair deal...... 

Still, it kinda amazes me that they're still selling (or trying to) DBZ.  :/  It's such an old series... and like you say, it's 50% muslce dudes screaming and 'powering up'......  It's actually kinda sad if it sells better than modern anime with good storylines etc.

Its the nostalgia factor in my opinion, I used to watch it all the time when I was younger and I'm sure a lot of other people did too. Coming home from school and watching Dragon Ball Z on Toonami was definately a highlight of my childhood.

I don't think any other series has made the same impact on the industry like DBZ has though with the exception of maybe Neon Genisis Evangelion or Transformers.

Anyone watching anything interesting this season?

I'll be watching Yuru Yuri S2 and Bindougami Ga! (which has a Gintama tone to it)

 

Also, Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure is getting a new anime aswell as another game which is kind of exciting news.

Nothing much, apart from Total Eclipse, which looks to be an above average mecha anime- but that's only after 1 ep so far.

Since Bodacious Space Pirates, Dusk Maiden of amnesia and mysterious girlfriend x are all done, there's nothing that catches my eye.  :(

Bindougami Ga! isn't too bad. Its made by Sunrise and has a Gintama feel to it.

The manga its based on is pretty insane too.

New Sailor Moon anime coming soon.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.co.uk/news/2012-07-06/sailor-moon-manga-gets-new-anime-in-summer-2013

Its pretty cool to see anime icons getting reboots like this, give us a new Fist Of The North Star and a new series of Tenchi and I'll be sorted for awhile.

I watched the first season of Darker Than Black resently. Its probably on of the best thought out shows I've watched in awhile.
