index ii part oneseries synopsis:

When science and sorcery clash, the result is explosive in this sequel to A Certain Magical Index from the studio that brought you Shakugan no Shana!

The Book of the Law—an encoded grimoire containing catastrophic magic—has been stolen, so naturally Kamijo, Index, and a few familiar faces join in the crusade to protect the one nun who can decipher the powerful text. But as the group battles church sects and holy assassins, they realize that discovering who their true enemy is may be more difficult than saving the sister. Meanwhile, an organization known as the Science Society resurrects an esper-producing program, a school festival brings out the competition—and drama—in the student population, and a mysterious figure negotiates the purchase of a sacred relic that could threaten the future of Academy City.

 

We’ll be premiering the English dub of A Certain Magical Index II at Otakon next weekend, so if you’re in town be sure to attend! Keep an eye on the Otakon website for scheduling information.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Blasts into North American Movie Theaters This August

 

FLOWER MOUND, TX, May 30, 2014 – Prepare for the Dragon Ball Z experience of a lifetime as Earth’s greatest heroes hit the big screen in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods! Stunning animation and epic new villains highlight this first new Dragon Ball feature film in over seventeen years!

 

Following the events from the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it’s too late. Only Goku, humanity’s last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe! Fans of the series will be delighted to know that Battle of Gods is an original work from Dragon Ball creator, himself, Akira Toriyama.

 

“We’re very excited to be bringing Battle of Gods to movie theaters across the country this summer,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of FUNimation Entertainment. “Dragon Ball Z has always been a huge part of everything we do at FUNimation and, speaking as a fan myself, I can’t wait to watch it on the big screen.”  FUNimation Entertainment will be partnering with Screenvision, a leader in cinema advertising and alternative content, to bring Dragon Ball Z : Battle of Gods to over 350 screens across the US & Canada.

 

There is still plenty more to announce in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more information regarding release dates and cast announcements.

30 years ago, a disaster known as a spacequake obliterated the center of Eurasia without warning, leaving 150 million corpses in its wake. Ever since that day, mankind has lived in constant fear of the spontaneously recurring spacequakes.

One day, an ordinary high school boy named Shido Itsuka discovers a mysterious girl at ground zero of a recent spacequake. Shido learns, through the help of his sister Kotori, that the girl is one of the Spirits: mystical creatures responsible for the genesis of the spacequakes. As captain of the anti-Spirit airship Ratatoskr, Kotori recruits Shido to help “seal” the sprits, thus ending their threat to mankind.

There’s just one catch: the only way to seal a spirit – is to make her fall in love with you.

Look out, Seattle! We’re heading to Sakuracon!

 

We are heading up north again this weekend for SakuraCon!  Are you as excited as we are for the event?  We have a ton of fun things planned, so read on for all of the details.

 

We have two English dub premieres scheduled this weekend.

 

Code:Breaker will screen on Friday, April 18th at 6:30 PM in Panels 1 (6C).

 

synopsis:

From the director of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood comes a story that asks just how many lives a hero can take before he becomes a villain.

 

Rei Ogami doesn’t have a problem with killing. As a Code:Breaker—a super-powered assassin employed by a secret government organization—he works outside of the law, existing in the gray area between right and wrong. When Rei gets an assignment, criminals are cremated in a blaze of blue fire. That is, until a classmate named Sakura witnesses his fatal flames in action and makes it her mission to keep him from killing again.

 

As Sakura becomes entrenched in Rei’s world of cruelty, mayhem, and violence, the line between good and evil begins to blur. When another Code:Breaker goes rogue and the remaining assassins assemble, murder might be the only way to make things right.

 

Code:Breaker releases on BD/DVD Combo on June 24th. Click here to order your copy.

 

Haganai NEXT will screen on Saturday, April 19th at 6:00 PM in Panels 1(6C).

Re: Club Guidelines

 

It has come to our attention that your club—officially formed with the goal of “making friends”—has been taking part in questionable behaviors on campus. We’d like to remind you that none of the following are approved club activities:

 

-          Stalking (especially taking candid photos of your peers)
-          Playing inappropriate video games
-          Watching anime involving adult themes
-          The creation of time machines

 

While we applaud your creative efforts in making a movie about intergalactic samurai robot wars, please note that the costumes do not fit our dress code. In addition, we have reports of brewing drama between Yozora and Sena regarding Kodaka—including the fact that an engagement has taken place. Please fill out required paperwork if the chapel needs to be reserved.

 

The BD/DVD Combo of the series will release on May 13th. Click here to order your copy from our Shop!

 

SakuraCon is presenting a special screening of the Attack on Titan English dub on April 19th at 1:30 in Panels 1 (6C) with a Q&A to follow with the Japanese voice actors and staff!
