Animeted! Summer Update!

It is the summer, right?

Well, sorry about the relative inactivites… obviously our writers, including myself, have other things to do that come at a higher priority than Animeted.

This doesn’t mean we gave up on it, obviously, we’ve been in this situation a number of times before.

Just for some reassurance, I’ll let you know what I have in store for you!



Shikabane Hime: Aka & Kuro

Clannad After Story

and maybe, maybe Toradora after them.

Anyways, make sure you do get out and have some fun while the suns out, cause fun is what life is all about. Don’t forget it.

As you can see, Funimation are really pushing the Anime entertainment medium forward with all these options, which is great.

This means that North America will see the Anime distributed on their territory… will there be enough interest for a European Distributor?
