May the Fourth be With You, Baby!

 

 

May the Fourth be with you. Every year on May the 4th we celebrate Star Wars Day (Get it? May the Fourth, May the Force…). Last year we took a look at Star Wars references in some of our anime titles. From Princess Jellyfish to Tenchi to FLCL, there are more nods to this beloved franchise in anime than you would think. For a list of some other Star Wars references in FUNimation anime titles, click here.

 

This year, we can add Space Dandy to that list! In the episode “The War of the Undies and Vests, Baby” Dandy crash lands on a remote planet, only to get knocked out and kidnapped by one of the planet’s inhabitants. Sound kind of familiar? Maybe this pose might jog your memory:

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.
