Across Southeast Asia, Space Dandy will premiere on January 5th at 10:00pm (SG, MY, PH, HK, TW) / 9:00pm (JKT, TH) first and exclusively on Animax, in a same-time-as-Japan broadcast. In addition, Space Dandy will debut in India on the same day as the Japan premiere at 10:00pm (IST) on Animax. The series will air with local language subtitling and an option of English dubbed audio on Animax.
Animax Korea has also licensed Space Dandy for South Korea. The channel will launch a Korean-subtitled version of the series simultaneously with Japan in January on their live channel and web-based VOD platform, SPINA.
Australia / New Zealand fans will be able to watch the series via Madman’s Screening Room (madman.com.au/videos) at the same time as the Japanese broadcast. The series will be streamed in Japanese with English subtitles. English dub broadcast information will be confirmed at a later date.
The series has been licensed to Anime Limited for English and French-speaking countries and regions in Europe. TV and online broadcast schedules are to be managed by Wakanim, with other outlets under consideration.
AV Visionen had gained the license for German-speaking countries and regions, and they plan to simulcast the series with German subtitles on their own streaming platform.

First up, let’s talk about mech, baby. Get ready for a legendary climax, Aquarion EVOL is set 12,000 years after the original series.
The intergalactic hijinks continue as beings from a womanless planet target the girls of the newly coed Neo-DEAVA academy. Meanwhile, a mysterious villain’s plot slowly comes to light, Amata’s past is revealed, and Mikono finds herself in the middle of a really awkward threesome. The hormone-fueled pilots will have to survive unusual training methods and swimsuit-filled secret missions in order to grow strong enough to kick some otherworldly tail, but as the boys and girls get closer to each other, they discover that destiny might not be on their side. Victory could require the legendary mecha Aquarion’s ultimate form—even if summoning it means breaking an intimate taboo.
Next up, we’ve got One Piece Season 5, Voyage 4.
Luffy pours his heart and soul into the battle to keep his nakama together!
The assault on Enies Lobby reaches a boiling point as Spandam drags Robin towards the towering Gates of Justice! Zoro’s demonic nine-sword fighting style sets the stage for a blistering barrage of heroic attacks as the Straw Hats inch ever closer to a joyous reunion with their captured crewmate. The showdown between Luffy and Lucci rages out of control against a backdrop of devastating destruction thanks to Spandam’s Buster Call. While the rubber-man trades blows with the most powerful assassin of CP9, his mates need help from below to avoid a watery grave. Explosions rock the horizon, Luffy’s giant attack sends him down for the count, and the unexpected return of an old friend represents the last glimmer of hope for our heroes!
So that’s what we’ve got for you this week. See anything you like?]]>

Wolf Children hits shelves today, and we’re thrilled to be adding another Hosoda film to our catalog. We screened this film on the convention circuit this past season, and the response was overwhelming! Now, you can own this heart-warming film on BD/DVD Combo and DVD.
Hana was a student before she was a mother. She was bright and pretty, and her future held endless possibilities. Then she met a man, who turned out to be a wolf, and together they built a family.Hana loved her mate fiercely, but fate took him from her, leaving her alone with two unusual kids she didn’t know how to raise. Frightened of being discovered, Hana and her wolf children fled to the countryside to build a new life. Raising her little wild things was an adventure. It left Hana bruised, scratched, exhausted, and joyously overwhelmed as her pups grew stronger and wandered further every day. This is a mother’s journey. Teach your children to chase their dreams – and smile through the tears as they disappear into the world in search of who they will become. Hana wasn’t always a mother, but it was always what she was meant to be.
It’s not too late to catch screenings of Wolf Children on the big screen! To find a screening near you, go to Tugg.com and search for Wolf Children.

Kaito and Akiho dream of building a giant fighting robot based on a super-popular anime, but that’s going to be impossible if they don’t get more members into their school’s Robot Research Club. They’ll take anyone they can talk—or force—into joining them, including an eccentric robotics champion with a secret identity and a l33t video-game designer who’s spent one too many late nights online. Finally, their goal looks like it’s within reach.
But when a sentient AI program tells Kaito about mysterious documents hidden on the internet, things start to get strange for everyone. As the club members track down the secret messages, they realize that the information might be far bigger—and more dangerous—than they expected.
