    Live-Action Blood to Open in U.S. in March

    Koby
    By Koby,

    The Korean news website Star News reports that Universal Studios is planning to release Chris Nahon's live-action film adaptation of the Blood: The Last Vampire anime film on 2,000 screens in North America next March. South Korea's Gianna Jun (Ji-hyun Jun of My Sassy Girl) stars as the ageless girl Saya who hunts down a breed of blood-feeding demons in Tokyo in 1970. France's Pathé and Hong Kong's EDKO Film plan to distribute the film in other countries around the world simultaneously. Pathé lists a June 2009 release date for France, but the current Korean release date has not been announced.

    New Fullmetal Alchemist Series Confirmed

    Koby
    By Koby,

    The wraparound jacket band on the 20th volume of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga will confirm on Friday that a new television anime series is in the works. A new anime series was a topic of much fan discussion for several months, but it was thrust into a more public spotlight last month when a management document was purportedly leaked from the BONES anime studio. The document listed Fullmetal Alchemist animator Yasuhiro Irie as "Hagane 2 kantoku" (Iron/Fullmetal 2 director).

    After the purported leak, BONES President Masahiko Minami posted an official statement that said that no file with this same formatted information existed within the company. When asked about the possibility of a sequel to Fullmetal Alchemist or Darker than BLACK (another BONES anime), Minami told ANN, "It hasn't been decided yet. We are interested in doing them. As original science-fiction works, they were extremely fascinating. With these kinds of dramatic story lines, I feel that there's a lot we could do potentially."

    Viz Media will publish the 17th volume of the manga version in North America this October, while FUNimation Entertainment released both the first television series and its theatrical movie finale.

    Madhouse Still Working on Ninja Scroll 2

    Masao Maruyama, the co-founder of the Madhouse anime studio, revealed at his Otakon 2008 panel today that his company is still working on plans for a sequel to the Ninja Scroll action anime film. However, he noted that Ninja Scroll 2 project still needs a script that is acceptable to himself and franchise creator Yoshiaki Kawajiri.

    The original movie opened in Japan in 1993, and Manga Entertainment released it in North America and other areas. Madhouse has since created a 2003 spinoff television series that Urban Vision licensed for overseas distribution. The American publisher WildStorm created its comic book take on the story in 2006.

    By Koby,

    The North American distributor Bandai Entertainment has announced at its "surprise" Otakon 2008 panel on Saturday night that it has acquired the feature-length .hack//G.U. Trilogy anime film. Cyber Connect 2 (.hack//SIGN, .hack//Legend Of The Twilight) adapted the story of the .hack//G.U. role-playing game trilogy for this newly animated feature in high definition. The project was first screened in a Tokyo theater in December of 2007, and Bandai Visual released the project on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Japan, after an initial delay, just this past March. Bandai Entertainment and the other Namco Bandai group companies have released the earlier game and anime installments in the franchise, including the .hack//Roots prequel.

    The Japanese broadcaster NTV has announced that it will air the Death Note Rewrite 2: L o Tsugu Mono (Death Note: Rewrite 2: L's Successors) special on August 22. Like the first special, this new compilation will summarize a part of the 2006-2007 television anime series. Specifically, it will recount the final half of the supernatural suspense story, including the investigators Near and Mello's confrontations with the vigilante Kira. For those who have not seen the first special (Death Note Rewrite: Genshi Suru Kami) last August or the television series, the genius detective character L and his assistant Watari will provide exposition of the story leading up the second special.

    Viz Media published Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's original manga in North America, and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block just completed its first run of the television anime series from Viz this summer.

    In order to ensure funds are there to pay the server bills we try to have donations ready in advance. So this goal will cover the next year in server fees. As of writing this, we currently have funds for the next 3 to 4 months left. Figured it's better to be prepared rather than worrying last minute month-to-month whether or not we'll hit enough to make the payments. So if you can chip in, it's much appreciated. If you can't, we understand.

      Okay, so people notice that (almost) all of my encodes are in Onedrive thanks to  bRoKeN dReAmS , and, well, due to his situation...if there's people that know about it...I dunno how long he can maintain his 1D account, so that leaves me with the only LAST possible thing I can think of which is torrenting. Now, I have a seedbox of 1.5TB (already used 75% of it) with the majority being hentai stuff. My seedbox was for the sole purpose of XDCCing my stuff on my channel and on #kametsu which BTW my bot is still banned there with no explaination at all, but anyway, it costs money to maintain a seedbox and it's expensive.
       
      What I'm trying to say is, I'm in financial need to not only keep my seedbox but to increase storage from 1.5TB to 2TB and to post my encodes to Nyaa, so if anyone wanna help me plz PM me.
       
      Anyway my latest encode [Wolf's Rain] status is 9 of the 30 eps are encoded and will be uploaded this weekend.
