Bad news fans, it looks like we’re losing another anime title because of the license of Aniplex. It’s been announced yesterday that the anime A-Channel: The Animation is leaving Sentai Filmworks.
If you haven’t got this anime and you want to buy it, get this anime on the lowest price.
Sentai Filmworks synopsis:
OUT OF PRINT NOTICE: This title is available on the store until 4/30/19 or while supplies last. Don’t miss out!
Toru and Run have been best friends forever, so when Toru learns that she’s managed to get into the same high school as Run, she runs to tell her… only to find Run in a compromising position with yet another girl, Yuko. Needless to say, that makes things a bit awkward at school, with Toru fending off those who might be interested in Run while Yuko and their other girlfriend, Nagi, have to deal with Run’s own penchant for drama. But it’s not all angst all the time, and as the school year progresses the four girls and their many classmates find time to laugh, play and figure out how to handle the unexpected problems life likes to throw at them. Like bugs in the house, accidentally giving each other horrible haircuts, freezing up at karaoke or forgetting to put your underwear on in the morning. When it comes to learning about the real world, there’s always something ‘educational’ to be found in A-CHANNEL: The Complete Collection.

Oro?! You heard me! A certain red-haired samurai is coming back in the big screen. To be honest, I found this news out from my blogger friend Lita from Lita Kino Anime Corner.
According to Anime News Network, Warner Bros of Japan announced that there are plans of two more “final” live-action movies of Rurouni Kenshin. The first movie is called Jūji Kizu no Naze (Mystery of the Cross-Shaped Scar), and the second movie is Saikyō no Teki・Enishi (Most Terrifying Enemy – Enishi). Meaning that these two movies is going to focus on the final arc of the manga. The final arc is called the Jinchu Arc and it takes place after the Kyoto Arc where Kenshin fought Shishio Makoto. In the Jinchu Arc, fans get to learn how did Kenshin become the manslayer and where did he got the scar. It also has the iconic final battle with Kenshin and Enishi, a man seeking revenge for the death of his sister Tomoe. It’s announced the previous actors for Kenshin (Takeru Satoh) and Kaoru (Emi Takei) will return to their characters. The movies will be released in 2020!
Like already mentioned in the title above, Disney announced that their upcoming streaming service Disney+ will begin on November 12th. So if you are a Disney fan who loves Disney movies like cartoon classics, live action, Marvel or Star Wars, you can finally stream your favorite shows and movies in this service. According to the official site, Disney+ will have a monthly price of $6.99. Like other services such as Netflix and Hulu, the service will be available for mobile and TV devices. You will be able to watch shows/movies such as from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.
According to the site, members will have access to exclusive TV shows such as live action series on the Marvel characters like Loki, Bucky and Falcon and even What if stories focusing on Marvel characters. Fox will also be allowing the cartoon series The Simpsons in Disney+. Star Wars is planning on a live action series called the Mandalorian and a new season of Star Wars: Clone Wars.
How do you feel about this news? I mentioned this a while back that once Disney starts this streaming service, this means Disney will also remove Disney content from Netflix in this year. This means that Marvel movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther will no longer be in Netflix and Star Wars movies and TV shows will be gone.
If you have Jump Force and you want more anime characters joining the fight, I got news for you. Joining the DLC roster we have My Hero Academia superhero All Might. It’s been announced today that All Might is going to be a playable character if you have the season pass or ready to buy him individually, you can have the chance to play as this strong hero of peace. The first DLC character to join was Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh!

If you want more Shonen Jump anime movies, look no further because I found some awesome news for One Piece fans. Toei Animation revealed a trailer on the upcoming movie One Piece: Stampede film. It’s also revealed that the movie will be premiered in Japanese theaters on August 9th, 2019. So far, there is no word from Funimation on a English Dub screening. In this movie we see Straw Hat attend a giant pirate festival called Pirate Expo. Besides the main characters, we have other characters such as Law, Buggy, the marines like Smoker, Hancock, Lucci and even Luffy’s brother Sabo. There is also two new characters designed by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda named Festa and Bullet who I am assuming is the antagonist of the movie.
