ACen09: Moribito & Live-Action Eva News



A quick update on stuff I've found out on the first day of Anime Central today, before I catch some sleep.

I asked some Media Blasters people at their booth what was going on with Moribito & Adult Swim. According to them, Moribito will indeed be coming back to AS & will be showing the entire series this time around, rather than just the first 10 eps AS originally aired over & over again. It'll be back on TV this summer. (July 25 I think is the date they gave me. Wish I had wrote it down.)

During the opening ceremonies when ADV head Matt Greenfield was introduced, someone in the crowd shouted a question about if we'll ever see the long-promised live-action Neon Genesis Evangelion movie. "Soon, & I'm not kidding" was Mr. Greenfield's response. He clarified a bit later that evening during an Evangelion panel, saying the closer he gets to sealing the deal the less he can say anything about it. & the fact that he can't say anything at all anymore should be a clear sign to us how close the deal really is. He seemed pretty confident.

There was also a marriage proposal during Anime Hell. Pretty cool. Finally, God Len from Japanator is also attending ACen, & he took some pics of the new fashion show we got going on this year. Check out his gallery here:

LOL. Yeah right. I think you are confusing confidence with "lol-i-think-i-will-just-make-up-an-answer-so-that-this-guy-will-leave-me-alone." This is just a last-ditch effort to get people talking about their company. ADV is probably gonna go bust by the end of this year. Since they'll have no positive news to share as that time approaches, that must mean ZOMG the movie is really close to getting made!!

Let's face it. There's no way this movie will see the light of day.

Trust me, Matt was serious. An official announcement is realistically on the horizon now.
