NYCC & NYAF 2010: Funimation Panel

I sat in on the FUNimation Panel on Friday Oct. 8th which was pretty much just a bunch of clips and trailers for shows that have already aired but are coming to DVD soon.  So yeah… it wasn’t that big of a deal.  When it comes to anime I am extremely picky so it’s hard for me to see an anime I really like and keep up with it, but I do want to check out Eden of the East and Corpse Bride. Below are some of the shows they discussed and their DVD release dates.


Hetalia: Axis Powers

DVD Season 2- 10/12/10- “Hetalia a webcomic, later adapted as a manga and an anime series, by Hidekaz Himaruya.  The series presents an allegorical interpretation of political and historic events, particularly of the World War II era, in which the various countries are represented by anthropomorphic characters (wiki).”

I also hear some people say it is racists.  I haven’t watched it yet but I hear it’s a matter of opinion.  I haven’t watched this show but I did get the voice actors to sign some Hetalia stuff and I was wearing my TARDIS shirt that day and me and one of the voice actors started gushing about David Tennant and he said he might have to opportunity to work with him and I told him to give David a kiss for me when he sees him! :)


Corpse Princess/Shikabane Hime

It is already released on DVD-  I want to watch this, even though the only reason may be because it has to do with zombies.  I talked about it previously during Zombie Week check it out here.

Eden of the East

DVD 10/19/10- I want to watch this one, it reminds me of Bourne Identity with a twist and a whole lot of yen.
