Focus Filmes Completará Fullmetal Alchemist!

Segundo o gerente de marketing da empresa, Afonso Fucci, confirmou no programa Tokusatsu Show (transmitido via web pela allTV), a série Fullmetal Alchemist terá os últimos volumes lançados em DVD no Brasil, depois de uma longa espera por parte dos fãs.

Tendo o último box lançado em 2007, a empresa descontinou o lançamento por um fator bem simples: as baixas vendas dos discos (otaku brasileiro só quer ver lançamentos, mas meter a mão no bolso pra comprar…).

No mesmo programa, Fucci revelou que o restante dos episódios do clássico O Pequeno Príncipe (que teve os 4 discos relançados em um box, conforme anunciamos aqui) também devem ser lançados no Brasil.

Outra série que terá continuidade garantida será Os Cavaleiros do Zodíaco: The Lost Canvas, que foi lançado pelo selo FlashStar Home Vídeo. Mais episódios estão a caminho no 2º semestre desse ano!

FUNimation anuncia Versão U.S.A de Dragon Box (FUNimation Announces U.S. Dragon Box!)

FUNimation announced July 18, 2009,  their plans to release a U.S. version of the popular Japanese “Dragon Boxes” this November, which use the original film masters. Perhaps the most notable detail is the boxes will remain in their original 4:3 aspect ratio instead of the faux 16:9 that FUNimation released their own DBZ box sets in. So fans that were upset by FUNimation in the past should be very pleased. The first set will contain the first 42 episodes of DBZ (spanning 6 discs) for a price of $79.99 on November 10th.

Flower Mound, TX – July 18, 2009 — FUNimation Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Navarre Corporation, today announces that it has acquired the original masters for the entire Dragon Ball Z anime series, episodes and films, and will release all as the Dragon Box for the first time in the U.S. The first of seven Dragon Boxes will be available at major retailers nationwide this Fall.

The Dragon Box will be produced from the original Dragon Box masters after a frame by frame restoration and will span the entire 291 episode television series and all 13 of its movies.
This definitive DVD box release begins with Dragon Box One which includes the first 42 episodes, uncut, on 6 discs.

The Dragon Box releases will feature an aspect ratio of 4:3, the original Japanese audio (with options for an English track or English subtitles), the original episode previews, complete opening and closing credits and a collector’s booklet.

Dragon Box One will be available at major retailers nationwide on November 10, 2009 and will have an SRP of $79.98.


UPDATE: Watch the announcement on FUNimation’s YouTube channel.

What was the Jump Super Anime Tour?
In honor of Weekly Jump’s 40th anniversary, Shueisha’s annual Jump Festa hosted a tour to 10 cities across Japan entitled the “Jump Super Anime Tour ~The Jump Heroes Great-Gathering~”. The tour screened seven newly-animated specials or shorts from popular series serialized in various Jump anthologies, one of which was DragonBall. In fact, of all the anime series based on a manga, DragonBall was the only one that was not currently running in a Jump anthology.

To attend the “Jump Super Anime Tour”, you had to send in an application form printed in Weekly Shounen Jump, selecting in what city (shown below) you would like to attend the tour. Once all of the applications were submitted, a certain number for each city were drawn at random, and those chosen were sent tickets to attend the screening. Following the completion of the tour, Jump streamed three of the specials online for a limited time, free of charge, on their Jumpland website. Not only that, but it was streamed with subtitles in a few languages, such as English, German, and French.

Anime Titles Screened
DragonBall – “Heya! Son Goku and Friends Return!!” (~34 minutes)
One Piece – “Romance Dawn” (~33 minutes)
Letter Bee – “Light and Blue Night Fantasy” (~27 minutes)
Bleach – “Colorful Bleach! The Gotei 13’s Epic Food Cart Battle” (~15 minutes)
Gintama – “The Birth of the White Demon” (~10 minutes)
Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s – “The Evolution Duel” (~15 minutes)

Ordering the DVD
Unlike the Dragon Boxes, the process for ordering this DVD was much more complex and limited. Anyone in the world was allowed to order any of the Dragon Boxes as long as the order was placed through an online store, like Amazon Japan, before the deadline ended. However, this DVD release was restricted to those living within Japan and Shueisha even went so far as to specifically note that orders from outside of Japan would not be accepted. Order forms for the three Jump specials seeing a DVD release were printed in specific issues of Weekly Shounen Jump, V-Jump, and Jump SQ.

To order any of these DVDs, you had to purchase a copy of one of the issues listed below, cut out the order form, and fill it in with the following information: 7-digit Zip Code, Address (in Japan), Full Name, Parents Name, Phone Number, Date of Birth, Gender, and the Quantity of Each DVD. The order form was then mailed in and if you met the deadline, you would receive an order confirmation in the mail. You then had until February 21st to visit a local convenient store listed on the order confirmation to actually pay for your order. Once paid, your order was complete and your DVDs would be shipped to you in early April.

Jump Issues Containing Order Forms
Weekly Shounen Jump – #4/5 (Dec. 22), #6/7 (Jan. 5), #8 (Jan. 19), #9 (Jan. 26)
Jump SQ – #2 (Jan. 5)
V-Jump – #2 (Dec. 20), #3 (Jan. 21)
DVD Case
The disc comes packaged in a standard white single DVD case with the cover slipped in the outside sleeve. The cover features the same image of Goku drawn by Yamamuro Naoyoshi, which was used in virtually all of the promotional images for the Jump special. This image is placed over a weird purplish background with some of the dragonballs placed over it. The cover also features the new DragonBall logo, which is actually different than the new one used in the special itself. The back of the cover features a short synopsis, along with some screen shots, a newly drawn image of whom else but Goku, and a credit listing for the main staff and cast. It should be noted that Gotenks is listed under the cast credits, although he is not actually credited in the special itself and was never credited in DragonBall Z.

Disc / Contents
The disc is made to look like the four-star-ball, which is a nice touch for all DragonBall fans.
They really could have done a lot more with the disc image, but its simplicity makes it work really well.

Non-Credit Ending (ノンクレジットエンディング)
Bonus Feature
The only bonus feature included on the DVD is a non-credit version of the ending animation set to the theme “Orange Hero” by jealkb. You can watch this bonus feature here.
DVD Menus
The DVD opens with a fun “40th Weekly Jump” animation. Sound effects commonly found in manga are shown on the screen and are pronounced as they’re shown. To finish things off, the “40th Weekly Jump” logo pops onto the screen. You can watch the DVD introduction here.

The main menu is a simple static image of the DVD cover with no music, which is a shame, since they really could have done a lot more with it. There are two buttons, one to play the special, and another to play the “Non-Credit Ending”. Other than this, there are no other menus on the DVD.

Special Items
The DVD comes packaged with two special items, a mini clear file and a postcard. The front of the mini clear file is transparent, and features an image of the Son family (without Chi Chi) and the same DragonBall logo that was used on the DVD cover. The back of the mini clear file is translucent and features images from the special that have been pieced together, along with images of the dragonballs. The file is sealed on the bottom and the left, allowing items to be placed inside the file. Though I’ll be honest, I don’t know exactly what you’d use this for, but it’s still pretty neat.

The postcard included features textless version of the DVDs respective cover image. However, if you look closely you may notice that the postcard contains all seven dragonballs, whereas the DVD cover image only has six. The back of the postcard is nothing fancy (grayscale “Kame” and DragonBall logos), but interestingly enough there is actually an area to insert a 7-digit zip code in Japan. So you could technically send this postcard to someone, except I don’t know why you’d send this gem to someone instead of just keeping it in your own personal collection.

Although this isn’t really a special item, there was also a promotional flyer for jealkb’s first major album, “Noroshi”, included with the DVD. The flyer mentions “Orange Hero”, the specials ending theme, although it is not listed as a track on the album. You can check out the flyer here.

All DVDs would be released in widescreen as they were originally broadcast.
