Bad News: Sekirei license expires!

Once again. FUNimation has some bad news. We are losing another anime title.

Much like the past anime (Darker than Black, both Fullmetal Alchemist anime, Bacanno!, Birdy the Mighty: Decode), FUNimation will be losing the anime action, harem series Sekirei. The anime license will expire on February 9th. That means, they will stop selling the home DVDs and they won’t be reprinting any more. If you haven’t bought this anime, you better hurry and pick up the complete collection set or the Season sets. The anime has two seasons!

Judging by the cover, it has the Aniplex title on it. I highly recommend anyone in the future to buying more Aniplex anime from FUNimation to ensure to save a copy.

Evangelion

It has been a long time since we heard the Evangelion anime. In a interview with UK Anime Network, animator director Takeshi Honda mentions that they have recently started to work on the final Evangelion movie this October. In his words, this is what he said:

“We’re actually working on the new Evangelion film right now. We’re working hard and it’ll come out eventually, so thanks for all of your patience – please continue to be patient, because it’s going to be the last episode.”

In a comment in a another interview, he is hoping that this last film will officially conclude Evangelion and also retire. It is hard for him to draw as he gets older.

In old news, anime director Hideaki Anno mentioned that he will be doing the last Evangelion once he has finished with the movie Shin Godzilla.
