    Midweek Anime Bulletin

    It happens occasionally, enough news worth printing transpires that I have to get my blogging cap on unexpectedly.

    Utena clips, Utena Review

    Inline Image
    Today, I posted a review for the Revolutionary Girl Utena movie, which turns out to be a happy coincidence, as yesterday MVM put some clips of the film online. So now you can watch the clips and then read my review. Or vice versa. I love it when that happens.

    Funimation let you watch Darker Than Black for free!

    Yes, yes, it's just the first three episodes, but to celebrate the upcoming release of the first Darker Than Black DVD in the US, Funimation are streaming the episodes to anyone who wants to watch it, anywhere in the world, and more importantly to the UK. So you can now get a taster of this acclaimed supernatural sci-fi mystery from the company that gave us Full Metal Alchemist, the Cowboy Bebop movie and Escaflowne. If that isn't enough, the soundtrack comes from the genius of Yoko Kanno.

    Go to http://www.completethecontract.com/ and enter the code BK201 to access the episodes.

    Crunchyroll let you watch Catblue: Dynamite. Yes, it's free as well!

    It's a CG cel-shaded animation along the lines of Appleseed and Vexille, but it's made specifically for the Internet and Crunchyroll have got the first 42-minute episode. It's a story set in the '70s, where a catgirl (genetic hybrid, not Batman style villain) named Blue gets involved in some gangster hijinks. You can stream it for free, or pay for some legal downloads, and depending on the response, more episodes may be forthcoming. Read more at Anime News Network, or just head straight to Crunchyroll.
