FUNimation at the Movies – CODE:BREAKER

The FUNimation at the Movies screening for July is CODE:BREAKER! We’ll be showing the first four English dubbed episodes for free at participating theaters nationwide. See below for more info and links to reserve your seats.

 

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.

Attack on Titan Part 2 Collector’s Edition Exclusive

attack on titan part 2We knew in our early planning stages that we wanted something special to use for the Attack on Titan Part 2 packaging cover. We wanted something that would be a companion piece to the original Key Art featuring the Colossal Titan and Eren used on our Attack on Titan Part 1 packaging. But we also wanted to take advantage of plot lines in the second part of the series, as well as feature characters not previously showcased on the Part 1 cover. What would be better than to show Mikasa facing off against the Female Titan?

 

So we reached out to the animation studio, and worked in development with them to create something unique! We sent a rough sketch of our concept and our source inspiration images to the studio. They then supplied us with their sketch of the concept, and after a few small tweaks, presto, we have this amazing piece of artwork that no one has seen before to use!

 

Attack on Titan Part 2 will be available on September 23, 2014, but you can jump over to Shop.Funimation.Com and order your copy today! Click here to buy now.

Riddle Story of Devil – “Class Black” Assassin Roll Call (Part 1)

 

Twelve female assassins. One target. This season’s simulcast Riddle Story of Devil (AKA Akuma no Riddle) revolves around an assassination game at the prestigious Myojo Academy, where twelve girls in Class Black have the chance to make their wish come true—if they can just manage to murder their classmate, Haru Ichinose. One assassin, the lone wolf Tokaku Azuma, finds herself inexplicably drawn to her would-be target and decides protect Haru from the others instead.

 

Each assassin has a very distinct personality, history, and fighting style, and the show features a different ending song for every episode, each sung by a different character from her perspective. We’ve posted the first six ending songs with a little info on each girl. Check back on Friday for the rest!

 

The 12th and final episode of Riddle Story of Devil just went up yesterday! Click here to watch now. Be sure to watch the simulcast—if you’re a binge watcher, now’s the perfect time. Remember that our home video releases are highly dependent on simulcast numbers, so if you want your views to count, watch it this week before the end of the simulcast period.

 

 

Assassin: Tokaku Azuma
Song: Paradox
Voice Actress: Ayaka Suwa
Weapon of choice: knife
Tokaku, our cold and stoic heroine, possesses amazing fighting ability and reflexes, and comes from a long line of assassins. For reasons she can’t quite articulate, Tokaku decides to resist the assassination game and instead chooses to protect Haru from their bloodthirsty classmates.
