Sentai Filmworks has licensed the currently-airing Gatchaman Crowds. This comes as no surprise, at least not to anyone that knows that they had already licensed the original Gatchaman and that they have a deal with Tatsunoko Productions to release a number of their works (which I talked about in my Anime Expo coverage).
Some sad news: this past Wednesday (Sept. 4, 2013), US anime voice actor Jerry Russell passed away at age 77 from surgery complications. Jerry Russell was mostly involved in Funimation productions, with notable roles as Tim Marcoh in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Papa in the Funimation dub of Initial D, and others. He will also appear in the dubs of Jormungand (as Chen Guoming) and Wolf Children (as Grandpa Nirasaki), which have yet to officially be released on DVD. Prayers and condolences go out to his family, friends, and fans.
The Summer 2013 season is wrapping up with a couple of weeks to go. However, the first official show of the Fall 2013 season is already about to start. The show is called Super Seisyun Brothers, described as follows by Anime News Network:
"...the story of siblings and their new love. There are two sets of strange siblings — each with an older sister and a younger brother. Because they are so similar, they are all friends with each other. It is a slice-of-life story with a lot of mishaps. The two sets of siblings' lives are full of and otaku humor in this slice-of-life story. Each set of siblings thought they would only have each other, but birds of a similar feather flock together to create this comedy."
Meanwhile, there is a short promotional video for the series here.
The show debuts next Friday (September 13th). It remains to be seen how long each episode will be, or if the show will be legally streamed anywhere.
I'm a bit short on ramblings this time around, so to make up for it, here's some fan art of an Attack on Titan x Yuyushiki crossover. (All art by 海月).
