July 20, 2007
It's back to school in September, and to help you cope with the transition there's a ton of anime titles coming out. Hmmm, textbooks or animation? It's a tough call.

Kicking things off right after Labour Day weekend is the debut of Essence of Anime, Manga Entertainment's equivalent to Bandai and ADV's Anime Legends and Essential Anime brands. They'll start by re-releasing Appleseed (the so-so 1994 OAV, not the recent CGI feature), Blood: The Last Vampire, Ghost in the Shell, the first volume of Karas, Ninja Scroll, Perfect Blue, the Read or Die OAV and Street Fighter Alpha. The week after comes the high-definition releases of Wings of Honneamise, in both HD DVD and Blu-ray. Two weeks after that is the DVD/UMD/Blu-ray release of Tekkon Kinkreet, which only just opened in limited release across North America.

And there's plenty more where that came from.
