Only news recap this May

Another two-week recap this week, and unfortunately due to travel it looks like this will be the only one this month. (Awkward timing with the new Godzilla flick coming out, I know.) I’ve been busy putting together the weekend’s panels for ACen, as well as checking out some of the recent Japanese (and related) releases:

  • Lu Over the Wall is well worth seeing; even if it’s a bit predictable, Masaki Yuasa’s presentation is a hoot.
  • The New Legends of Monkey is more entertaining than I was anticipating.
  • Not remotely SF/horror/fantasy, but Aggrestsuko is great, too. There was even a Daimajin reference.

On to the news, though there’s not all that much.

  • Funimation is releasing Takashi Miike’s As the Gods Will next month.

  • Third Window Films is putting Osamu Tezuka’s Cleopatra and 1001 Nights on UK BD. (NSFW trailer)

That’s a wrap! Back to panel prep; hope to see some folks at the con!
