"Casshern Sins", "Eden of the East" licensed

ANN reports from Otakon that Funimation has snagged Casshern Sins and Eden of the East, to be released in 2010.

If I had kept up with blogging, I'd have mentioned that I kept watching Eden, and even enjoyed it a little bit, though I found a few minor aspects annoying. Still, the story was kind of interesting.

Casshern Sins was a show I was really trying to work up a decent post about. I had gotten sucked into it a while after it finished, and blasted through it in short order. Though it really had an overbearing bleakness, I thought the design, atmostphere, and unique style were outstanding, and there was quite a bit of energetic, lively animation to make up for a lot of the seemingly static, gloomy angst. It was another of those "journey-not-the-destination" types of runs, where the side characters encountered along the way where often the most compelling part. I look forward to owning this one, for sure.
