https://screenanarchy.com/assets_c/2014/08/Mardock_Scramble_Third_Exhaust-main-thumb-860xauto-49688.jpg

Aniplex is back and is taking yet another anime title from the market. Announced on Twitter and to those who have the newsletters, Sentai Filmworks announced that the license to the anime films of Mardock Scramble has expired. This anime owned by both Sentai Filmworks and Aniplex; there are three movies of this anime. If you don’t have the trilogy or you want to own the movie series without paying a hefty amount of money, I strongley recommend buying this anime from the Sentai Filmworks shopping site. I placed an order for this anime today and it only costs about $22 dollars for three movies.

Synopsis:

Murdered by a sadistic slayer of women, Rune Balot finds herself reborn for one purpose: to bring her killer to justice. But even knowing the identity of her murderer, proving he’s the one responsible for her death won’t be easy, especially when the murderer himself has forgotten his crimes. With the help of Doctor Easter, the man who restored her to life, and Oeufcoque, an intelligent, self-aware universal item capable of assuming the form and function of anything from a gun to a mouse, to a lady’s glove, Rune will have to find the proof to convict a vicious killer without dying a second time. In a world of black market body parts, high-stakes gambling, and lurid violence, justice will be written in blood as vengeance hit the streets in MARDOCK SCRAMBLE!

Sword Art Online season 3 will have up to 50 episodes!

Hello fans and followers! I bring good news from the internet and it’s about Sword Art Online. First announced on Sunday, Aniplex released a new trailer of the upcoming season 3 of Sword Art Online. It’s only in Japanese of the moment without subtitles, but we get to hear the new songs from LiSA and Eir Aoi along with new scenes of the plot. However besides what has already been said, I want to share something new instead. It’s been announced that the new season of Sword Art Online will have four (4) seasons; in total of fifty episodes (50). Aniplex plans to have season 3 to focus entirely on Alicization from the light novels which begins in volume 9 to all the way to 18. The first episode will be an hour long.

Synopsis from Rightstuf:

The year is 1931. The city is Shanghai. Ten years before America will enter World War II, the hydra’s teeth planted by the first great global conflict are beginning to germinate. Hatching like spiders, they weave the complex web of plots and conspiracies destined to inevitably draw entire nations against their will to the brink of destruction once more.

Caught in the heart of these webs, desperately seeking to separate lies from truth, is “Sakurai Kikan,” an ultra-secret intelligence agency staffed by extraordinarily talented individuals with abilities far beyond those of normal humans. Their duty: to stop the darkest plots and eliminate the greatest threats. But in a city built on intrigue, can even a team of clairvoyants, telepaths and espers stand against the ultimate forces of destiny?
