See It before you can Buy It

Post by ShadowAgent »

Hello fellow anime fans,

As you know by now, we have put our schedule online for all to see, but did you also know that we are showing a few videos before they are commercially available? There are not a whole bunch, but we are excited to offer fans the opportunity to get a peak of whats coming.

Aside from our industry panels that give sneak peaks of their own, here are the titles we have on the schedule:

- Baka & Test - Summon the Beasts
Advanced placement into a school of higher grade proof-reading is determined by the results of the Promotion Test strictly for class type. Ranging from A class with the best facilities anyone can offer all the way down to F Class which is composed of low dining tables, rotten tatami mats and other worn out facilities. Students can change classes by competing using the Examination Summons Battle system or ESB. Students summon characters with their equivalent test mark scores and use them to compete with other classes.

- The Girl Who Leapt through Space (Not to get confused with The Girl Who Leapt through Time)
In the year 311 of the orbital calendar, humanity has migrated to countless colony clusters in space. Akiha Shishido encounters a malevolent artificial intelligence, Leopard, who has been installed on a colony. She is joined by Inter-Colony-Police officer Itsuki Kannagi, taciturn young girl Honoka Kawai and a robot-potato, Imoko "Imo-chan" Shishido.

- Rideback
In a future world where an organization called the GGP has taken control of the world, Rin Ogata was a promising up-and-comming ballet dancer, but suffered a serious injury and decided to quit. Years later in college she comes across a club building and soon finds herself intrigued by a transforming motorcycle like vehicle called a Rideback. She discovers that her unique ballet skills with balance and finesse make her a born natural on a Rideback. However, those same skills also get her into serious trouble with the government.

- 5cm per second (rereleased with crunchyroll)
A tale of two people, Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. They become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of letters. Yet as time continues to trudge on, their contact with one another begins to cease. Years pass and the rift between them grows ever larger. However, Takaki remembers the times they have shared together, but as life continues to unfold for him, he wonders if he would be given the chance to meet Akari again as the tale embarks on Takaki's realization of the world and people around him.

We also have a couple of anime that are fresh out on the scene, so check them out as well.

I wish the dubbing on 5 Centimeters Per Second weren't so bad. I think I may still get it though.
