Funimations News

Funimation has issued new retailer solicitation lists, and thus confirmed that it will ship the anime series Red Garden and Welcome to the NHK in December in two DVD box sets each, instead of single DVDs. Both titles were formerly released by ADV Films before their rights holder Arm Corporation transferred its licenses to Funimation. ADV Films had shipped five of its six planned DVDs for Red Garden before canceling its release earlier this year. However, the only way to get the final episodes on a North American DVD is to get Funimation's Red Garden Complete Collection Part 2 box for a suggested retail price of US$49.98.

Similarly, ADV Films released five of its planned six DVDs for Welcome to the NHK However, Funimation is only releasing the final episodes in its Welcome to the NHK Season 1 Part 2 box set, which will retail for a suggested price of US$59.98. On November 25, Funimation is releasing another former ADV Films title, Pumpkin Scissors, in two box sets for US$59.98 (suggested retail price) each, although ADV Films had released all but one of the DVDs for it.

Taro Aso, the Japanese politician who's well known among otakus for being a fan of manga, formally took over as Prime Minister of Japan on September 24, 2008. This was the same guy who, as foreign affairs minister, made some notable acts concerning the world of manga, such as announcing the first International Manga Awards, circulating Detective Conan manga pamphlets to explain his ministry's mission, and advising a former French presidential aspirant to "read more manga" after the criticisms that guy made about it.
