The last podcast sucked up a lot of time this week, so this weekend news recap is a little late. On the other hand, there’s not that much to report!
- Discotek license rescued the 2001 version of Cyborg 009. Despite being excellent, the show bombed stateside, only getting half released on TV and only a few episodes ever made it to DVD. With a new version incoming, I eagerly anticipate being able to throw my Hong Kong bootleg set into the garbage.
- A PV for Full Metal Panic: Invisible Victory. Yep, it looks like FMP.
- The folks behind Eagle Talon are doing a new gag anime based on Yokai Ningen Bem for the franchise’s 50th anniversary.
- We have a creepy teaser image for the anime anthology based on Junji Ito stories:
- Universal Studios Japan is doing attractions based on Sadako and School of Ghosts from September 9 to November 5.
- A dub trailer for Space Patrol Luluco:
- With Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters out this November, it seems like a good time for Kong on the Planet of the Apes. I guess that’s what Boom is thinking, because otherwise this (like any PotA crossover) is sort of weird.
That’s a wrap, I think. Let us know what all may be missing!
