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.
noezel7, please look for a message via your “Ask” on tumblr, as well as a message from Michelle on your Facebook page (thank you for having options for how to contact you!)
While there can only be one winner, we were so impressed by all the entries we received that we chose a couple of runners up who will receive a consolation prize of a purple Prussia bandana, a Mint Bunny wristband, and some postcards. Here are your runners up!
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.
Father’s Day is this Sunday! So, we’re honoring some of our favorite FUNimation Dads. We’ve got a poll on our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/funimation) so go vote for your favorite!

Flower Mound, TX – June 11, 2013 – In celebration of hitting the 1 million fan milestone on their official Facebook page, FUNimation has announced the acquisition of Evangelion 3.0.
Shinji awakens – fourteen years after the third impact – to an existence he does not recognize. Earth lies in ruins, yet his body has not aged a single day. Those he once fought valiantly to protect have cruelly turned against him. Nerv is nothing but a memory. Trapped in a harrowing cycle of death and rebirth, Shinji continues to courageously battle the angels – even as the world spirals toward a tragic end.
A big “Thank You!” to all the FUNimation fans for getting us to this momentous milestone. We’re grateful to you all, and incredibly lucky to have such awesome fans.
