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.

Mysticism, Religion, and Red Data Girl

Do you love Japanese culture? Do you pour over books about Japan, or research online, in the hopes of visiting the country that produces some of your favorite series? Well, we’re about to drop a cultural lesson on you. If you’ve ever been interested in learning more about the religion, myths, and kami of Japan, here’s an introduction to these as they relate to Red Data Girl. Read on for some enlightenment.

 

Red Data Girl is a coming-of-age story painted in the beautiful colors of Japanese legends. If you like stories with a strong basis in exotic fantasy then you’re in for a real treat. The series is imbued with Shinto mysticism, some of which may be quite foreign to Western audiences (although certainly more familiar if you watch a lot of anime!). The series releases on DVD on June 17th. Click here to order!

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.

Announcements at Anime Boston

Flower Mound, TX (March 22, 2014) – FUNimation Entertainment announced today at their Anime Boston Industry Panel that they have acquired the home video rights to A Certain Scientific Railgun S. The series will release on DVD in two parts this summer.

 

series synopsis:

 

Something sinister is growing in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of a project to clone one of the super-powered students known as espers. High-ranking master of electricity Mikoto Misaka laughs off these stories until she comes face to face with a copy of herself. The duplicates are real, and are being mass-produced from Misaka’s DNA, making each one of them a little piece of her.

 

These clones—her sisters—are being systematically murdered in a series of experiments designed to turn a sadistic killer into the strongest esper in history. Misaka vows to save her copies and destroy the project, but this might be one fight she can’t win alone. High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of the Railgun series from the creator of A Certain Magical Index.
