Posted in anime with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2010 by Pirate

Anime licensing company FUNimation just licensed some very popular anime: The Trigun film, titles Badlands Rumble, Black Butler 2, and Darker Than BLACK season 2. All of these anime seem to have a 2011 release date.

Trigun: Badlands Rumble is the first film based on the Trigun franchise. Trigun started out as a manga by Yasuhiro Nightow, and ran in Shonen Captain from 1995 to 1997, and made 3 volumes. In the US, all three volumes were released by Dark Horse Comics. The series was popular enough to spawn a sequel series by the same author, which ran in Young King Ours from 1998 to 2007, and made 14 volumes. It was called Trigun Maximum. In the US, it was also released by Dark Horse Comics.

The manga was adapted into an anime series in April 1998, and ran untill September that same year with only 26 episodes. It was animated by Madhouse, and was licensed by Geneon Entertainment, and it aired on Adult Swim and G4. Later, FUNimation re-licensed the anime. The film aired in Japanese cinemas on April 2010, and was also animated by Madhouse.

The manga, anime, and film follow the adventures of an infamous man named Vash the Stampede, who has a very large bounty on his head, so bounty hunters try to take hin in daily. However, he doesn’t know why he’s wanted, because he has amnesia. The franchise has a very large fanbase.

Black Butler 2 is an anime sequel series to Black Butler, which is based on the dark fantasy manga series by Yana Toboso. The manga started running in Monthly GFantasy on September, 2006, and is still running with 9 volumes. The manga is licensed in the US by Yen Press, and the first two volumes have been released.

The manga got an anime adaption on October 2008, and finished on March 2009 with 24 episodes. FUNimation also licensed that series. Black Butler 2 premiered on Japanese TV on July 1, 2010, and is ongoing. Both anime are animated by A-1 Pictures (of Kannagi fame).

Black Butler is about a 12-year-old noble who serves the queen. His “Black butler” Sebastian follows all his orders perfectly, because of possible demonic powers.

Darker Than BLACK season 2, AKA Darker Than Black: Gemini of the Meteor, is the seacond anime series for the Darker Than BLACK fantasy franchise. The franchise started out as an anime series on April 2007, and finished on September 2007 with 25 episodes. The series was licensed by FUNimation. That same year, it got two different manga adaptions.

In March 2008, it got a one-episode OVA, and then, on October 2009, Darker Than Black Season 2 started, and finished on December 2009 with 12 episodes. Both anime series and the OVA are animated by BONES (Famous for Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater, and Eureka 7).

In the series, a group of people with mystical powers examine and attempt to study a strange occurence called “Hell’s Gate”. But, little do they know that dark secrets may be unburied.

All of these new licenses will probably get Blu-Ray releases.
