Sunrise Bringing More Bandai Entertainment Titles To Other Distributors

3 min read

SunriseSunrise held their first panel at Anime Boston this year and talked about a lot of their works over the years, including a fun if short World of Gundam segment that skimmed a lot of material about their premiere franchise. The panel showcased many series that they currently have being released in North America through various distributors, from DVD and Blu-ray to streaming sites, and had a lot of positive reactions to many of their titles, including a lot of applause for Binbogami ga.

At one point during the presentation, they showcased Code Geass: Akito the Exiled, who has its second episode coming out this usmmer in Japan, and saying that they’re working on bringing this and the original series to North America in the future. The two properties have found new homes overseas in the last several months. Interestingly, as the conversation went along at different points, it was made clearer that Sunrise thought a lot of these properties and others that were previously released through Bandai Entertainment would have found new homes. They did indicate that they are working to distribute many of them through others such as Sentai Filmworks, FUNimation and Viz Media, noting that Nozomi Entertainment has just announced Gundam Unicorn.

Though they couldn’t announce anything, they suggested fans keep an ear out for Viz Media when it comes to the first Tiger & Bunny movie as they expect that will be finalized soon. They also showcased the second movie which is due out in February of 2014.

The most obvious title that fans clamored for as the discussion turned was for Cowboy Bebop to get its Blu-ray release in North America.
