In what may or may not be the last post about this year’s AX, we’re bringing you the AMV setlist from this year’s AMV contest, complete with links to where you can watch them. The Anime Expo AMV contest had a strong showing again this year, though many of the videos shown had debuted previously elsewhere. I am also pleased to note that all AMV events were absolutely packed this year, so if you too are an AMV fan, you’re in increasingly good company!
Without further ado, this year’s Anime Expo AMV contest finalists (winners in bold). Click to watch them!
To get fans hyped up for Space Battleship Yamato 2199’s upcoming remake, the Japanese branch of the online retailer Amazon began running a 225-second promo video earlier today. Yutaka Izubuchi (R! ahXephon), the 53-year-old designer who made the original mechanics and robotics of the Yamato franchise, will be the chief director of the show for the first season. The anime studios XEBEC and AIC are producing the anime, while Nobuteru Yuki and Makoto Kobayashi will be designing the characters and mechanics respectively. Judging on the quality of the video, I’d say the remake is worth checking out! It’s scheduled to go out on sale after it’s theatrical debut on April 7th, so don’t miss it!Comments
The anime Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 1000% has just gotten a green-lit for it’s second season! The anime’s first season became popular last year when it was part of the Summer 2011 line-up, it’s Special Event is being hosted today as well. Are you excited?! :D
Hanasaku Iroha one of this year’s most well received anime and one of my personal favorites has just got a greelight for a second season! On the very first volume of the Hanasaku Iroha Green Girls Graffiti manga, the cover sprung up on us the announcement that a new animated season has been approved and will be aired sometime in 2012.
My excitement for this is perhaps dimished by the fact that we’ll have to wait for some unforseen day next year for it to air, but nonetheless it’s awesome news! :D
