Neat Anime Licesing News... Anchor Bay Picks Up Russian ESPers vs Nazi Undead Flick "First Squad"
Anchor Bay Entertainment / Manga Entertainment announced it has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the award-winning animated thriller First Squad The Moment of Truth from LA-based XYZ Films. The film was created and written by Misha Sprits and Aljosha Klimov and directed by Yoshiharu Ashino, and produced by Molot Films and Studio 4C, one of the most impressively innovative institutions in anime (Tekkon Kinkreet, Genius Party, Mind Game). Set during the opening days of World War II on the Eastern Front, its main cast is a group of Soviet teens with extraordinary abilities. The teenagers have been drafted to form a special unit to fight the invading German army. They are opposed by a Schutzstaffel (SS) officer who is attempting to raise from the dead a supernatural army of crusaders from the 12th Century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause. Anchor Bay is releasing the film on both DVD and Blu-ray later this summer. Colony Drop has what's probably the definitive English language piece on the film here.Ain't It Cool News Animation RSS Feed

Say what you will about it, but at least anime still comes up with shit that leaves US animators in the dust!<p>These guys have imagination. We have to spinoff the The Jetsons in to The Incredibles! And make under the sea bullshit!

I don't have any huge hate for Robotech, but we'll never get a Macross live action Movie or even an English release of Macross Frontier because of them.

That is one of the most retarded things I've ever read. Anyway I like Anime but the days of being "blown away" by what the Japanese are doing in animation is long gone. Akira, Evengelion, Cowboy Bebop, pre-2001 Miazaki, those where the days when Japan was setting the bar, not so much now.

sucks dick. Also, what the fuck is "licesing"? rodtorfulsonsarmada is being way too generous with the subtlety. When you have a site as highly trafficked as this at least check your spelling. Macross rules. . .Robotech is a fucking disaster.
