Release Schedule Updated!

I know it’s way overdue, but thanks to the help of one of our new interns Michelle, the release schedule finally got updated.  Yes, we do have an intern program.
[spoiler /Click here for more info about our internship program./ /Hide/]

Undergrad college students can apply for positions in any of the following departments:

  • Marketing (focus on PR, Marketing, Social Media, Media Planning)
  • Creative Services (creative development, digital content, web design)
  • IT (Information Technology)
  • Production (Trailer Development, Editing, Sound Design)
  • Consumer Licensing (Licensing, Acquisitions)

The most critical traits for the FUNimation intern candidates are reliability, integrity, and the ability to take initiative as well as direction. Computer literacy, excellent communication and writing skills, and an interest in Anime are all strong advantages. Interns are required to live locally in the DFW area.

Resumes can be sent to [email protected][/spoiler]Releases have been shifting around quite a bit recently, so you may want to take another look at what’s coming out.

I’m particularly interested in getting Evangelion 2.22 and FLCL on Blu-ray. What are you excited for?

Hetalia T-Shirts are Going Fast!

Don’t forget to order your commemorative WWII T-shirts from RightStuf.com.  Ok, that’s a lie. They’re not commemorative and Flying Mint Bunny doesn’t really have anything to do with any of the world wars, but they are pretty snazzy. Unfortunately if you wanted a small or medium “Make Pasta Not War” design, you’re shirt out of luck. Those are sold out.  Also, there’s only 2 left of the small “Flying Mint Bunny” shirts, so you’d better pick up yours before it’s too late.

Since when ever these pics get posted and people always ask where they can get the hats, here’s that info. Pick up a FMA beanie or Soul Eater Black Star Cap also at RightStuf.

As stated before, the shirts are made of a thinner cotton jersey material that has a little bit of stretch and are cut to be more fitting that your normal tee. The sizes are unisex so each size is in the range between men’s and women’s sizes.

Stay tuned ’cause next week we should have some more Hetalia news coming your way.

These shirts would go great with your Hetalia: Axis Powers – Season 1 and Season 2 DVDs, so make sure you order those too, if you haven’t already.
