Flower Mound, TX – June 14, 2013 – FUNimation announced today that it has acquired rights to Ghost in the Shell: Arise. They plan to release a special edition subtitle-only Blu-ray containing the imported Japanese O-card, Blu-ray discs, and film strip along with an English translated art booklet. This special edition will be a limited single run printing of 2,500 units and will be on sale prior to FUNimation’s typical English language home video release. FUNimation will also be screening parts 1 & 2 of the OVA series in a limited theatrical run later this year.
In this prequel set one year after the fourth World War, cyborg and hacker extraordinaire Motoko Kusanagi from the military’s 501st Secret Unit finds herself wrapped up in the investigation of a devastating bombing.
Bandai Visual is currently streaming the first 8 minutes of Ghost in the Shell: Arise via YouTube from June 14th to June 28th. See video above (for English subtitles turn on close captioning).
Congratulations to noezel7! Your flag was picked as the winner of our #HetaliaFlagDayContest. Hetalia wouldn’t be Hetalia without a healthy helping of rainbows and bright colors! “Food, Friends, Laughter” is definitely as essential to the show as “Make Pasta, Not War,” and this definitely portrayed what our beloved series is all about.

This flag is from white777. We’re all ecstatic to see the mochi show up in Beautiful World, and this flag definitely captures their cuteness! Please also look for a message on your Tumblr page via your “Ask.”
From chibitorra. This flag definitely wins points for creativity, and the reasoning was very impressive. After all, white is the combination of all colors in the light spectrum! The battered Italy chibi is adorable too. Please also look for a message via your “Ask” on Tumblr.
