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.

Zombie Week- Corpse Princess 


Corpse Princess (Shikabane Hime) Parts 1 & 2 DVD is set to be released Sept. 14th with English Dubs.  Has anyone seen this before, what did you think?  Watch episodes here on FUNimation.

Summary via Mania.com

Plot Summary: Makina is dead, but she can’t let go of this world. She burned to death in a fire started by freaks that wouldn’t stay buried. She knows she doesn’t belong among the living, but that won’t stop her from hunting the rotting remains of those who refuse to die. She’s hell-bent on filling empty graves with the monsters that should be six feet under. Makina is a Shikabane Hime — a Corpse Princess — and it’s her job to finish off the undead leftovers haunting the living.




Another zombie apocalypse anime that I’ve been watching is High School of the Dead. If you can ignore the massive amounts of ecchi it isn’t bad so far.  I watch it on Anime Freak (sub only).
