Anime Hype: No Evangelion 3.0 at AX

-Funimation has decided to give the Evangelion 3.0 premiere to the Japan Film Festival of San Francisco. The festival is claiming it as the U.S. Premiere taking place weeks after AX. No word from Fun on any other U.S. dates or when it will be available for the home market. I was looking forward to yelling out Shinji!

-Little Witch Academia is coming to Blu-ray in August. Free to view on-line here

The Collector’s Edition of Little Witch Academia includes a Blu-ray disc (26 min episode and a 66 min never-before-seen Making-of video), an original soundtrack, and a 112-page art book. More information:

Heads up there's a Little Witch Academia Fan Event at Anime Expo 2013. The fan event will be on 7/6 at 2pm. In order to be a part of the event, the fans will have to submit their full names, address, and phone number to [email protected] by 6/26. The 50 lucky winners will be contacted by 6/30!!
