Sentai Filmworks Licenses No. 6 Anime

Posted by Koby On August - 3 - 2011

The North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on today that it licensed the ongoing No. 6 anime series.

According to the press release, Sentai Filmworks will distribute the anime on home video next year with additional digital distribution outlets coming “soon.” Crunchyroll currently streams the anime outside Japan every Friday.

Sentai Filmworks offers its past products through digital outlets such as iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Zune Marketplace, The Anime Network, PLAYSTATION Network, and YouTube.

No. 6 is a post-apocalyptic, mystery anime series revolving around a young man named Shion (voiced by Yuuki Kaji), who houses another young man named “Nezumi” for the night. Nezumi (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya) is on the run from the authorities and disappears by morning — only to reappear four years later to rescue Shion from arrest. Together, the two resist capture and attempt to uncover the secrets of City Number 6.

The anime is adapted from a series of light novels penned by Atsuko Asano and illustrated by Hinoki Kino. The series continued for nine total volumes from Kodansha since its debut in October of 2003. Asano also wrote novels that inspired the 2006 The Comedy Team manga and 2008 The Telepathy Girl Ran anime.

Bleach Anime, Possibly Ending Soon?

Posted by Koby On January - 12 - 2011

The Japanese rock band ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D posted on its blog on Saturday that its new song “Song for…” will serve as a “fitting” ending theme song for the Bleach anime’s final season. However, the band has since removed the mention of Bleach anime’s final season from its blog post, although Google retains a web cache of the original post. The song will be the ending theme of the anime starting on Tuesday.

Could it be possible that the band actually let slip the Anime was ending and then noticed their mistake? Honestly as I’ve said all along, with the end of Aizen coming soon and that arc being done in the manga, it’ll actually be a perfect place to end the Anime and then pick it back up again later on down the road when the manga gets far enough ahead to prevent to use of adding a hundred more filler episodes.

So I honestly do believe it will be ending, and if it doesn’t, well it should have.
