Right Stuf/Nozomi Entertainment CEO Shawne Kleckner did not disappoint last year at AX 2009 when he made a number of announcements for some great titles like Maria Watches Over Us, ARIA and Irresponsible Captain Tylor. As great as that announcement was, though, it pales in comparison to the great titles that are headed our way this very year as well as early 2011. Oh yeah, you just have to love Right Stuf/Nozomi.
Maria Watches Over Us, Season 4 – With a release date of July 6, 2010, this unique and genuinely touching human story deserves a Season 4 set and that’s exactly what we get here.
El-Hazard: The Wanderers – A September 7, 2010 release date of this remastered gem is looking good and believe when I say that you will definitely not want to miss this one.
Super GALS!: Complete Collection – The release date for this one is October 5, 2010 of this really irresistible series and with all the episodes in place this one looks to be a deal you will not want to miss.
Dirty Pair, Part 1 – Those who don’t remember this classic 1980s series missed out and it’s great news that the remastered series will be heading our way in Winter of 2010. This is the chance to introduce this ultra cool and fun series to new audiences or for those who want to revisit this classic.
Dirty Pair, Part 2 – The second part will be released in Spring of 2011.
Gravitation – The remastered complete collection will be available Winter 2011.
Antique Bakery – Based on the manga by Fumi Yoshinaga, this has all the appearances of a yaoi title and it is but there’s a deeper meaning to the story that should appeal to those who don’t even care for yaoi. This one is heading our way in 2011.
Junjo Romantica, Season 2 – Available in Spring 2011 for all those boy’s love fans
So Ra no Wo To – This series produced by A-1 Pictures and Aniplex is a gorgeous-looking series that is sure to become a new fan favorite. The single box set with extras will be available in 2011.
Revolutionary Girl Utena – Remastered and already looking awesome, this series is just anime gold and if you know it you will certainly agree. We are definitely looking forward to it in 2011.
There are big announcements in this year’s panel as some great new titles are heading our way this year as well as the return of a classic like Dirty Pair. Really, there’s just everything for everyone this year and yaoi fans will not be disappointed. Thank you, Right Stuf/Nozomi, for bringing us Lost Universe and El-Hazard: The Wanderers. Also, the special announcements already have Animanga Nation very excited.
