    "It is my fault, and I am sorry. The source material should have been better and I've done a great burden"

    That breaks my heart.

    Sounds to me like they're making mangaka Daichi Sorayomi unfairly fall on his own sword for this. Why not just keep the manga if that's doing okay? (Or is that too much like common sense?)

    Man that statement is pretty brutal, he's taken all the heat for the adaptation. I honestly didn't think it was that bad.

    Arrow Video announcements for July include Kinji Fukasaku's New Battles Without Honour and Humanity and Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Pulse. More pertinently, Arrow Books will be releasing books by Tom Mes writing about Meiko Kaji and Andrew Osmond on Ghost in the Shell

    If nothing else, I would probably buy that for the cover.

    Yeah, nice cover. Who's the illustrator, I wonder?

    It's credited to Chris Malbon.

    He also did their covers for Takashi Miike's Black Society Trilogy and Kinji Fukasaku's Doberman Cop adaptation

    In this world, if you don't bring your A game you're only going to be left behind and out on your ass.

    We have yet to assess the fullest extent of the losses here.

    There's nothing to say here, the show was assassinated.

    Pretty amazing news in several ways. I never thought we'd see it as Viz should have first dibs on it and they seem loathe to let anyone else have things if they don't want it. Maybe they can prise Hayate x Blade off Viz at some point as well.

    Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere on the forum but..
    Fullmetal Alchemist, One Piece Voice Actor Ed Blaylock Passes Away
    Voice actor and radio host Ed Blaylock passed away earlier this month aged 64. He voiced quite a few characters for Funi dubs, with his biggest roles being King Bradley in the FMA franchise and Sengoku from One Piece.
    This is very saddening, his voice work was superb, and his performance as Bradley was probably one of my favourites in the series.

    The radio station where he worked, WRR 101 gave a touching tribute to him here:

    Very sad, he was perfect as King Bradley in both adaptations.

    True that, his performance along with the other Funi VAs is one of the defining factors that makes FMAB my all time favourite anime series.

    Yuri!!! On Ice is returning - a film has been commissioned, and it is not a compilation film.
