FUNimation Acquires Eden of the East and Chobits
All three Eden of the East movies (The King of Eden, Paradise Lost, and Air Communication), penned and directed by Kenji Kamiyama, are now in the hands of FUNimation. The release date is set for 2011.
The story continues from where the TV series ended. Morimi Saki returns to the USA to find Takizawa Akira, leaving the other Selecao to revel in their machinations. Some even plan on eliminating Takizawa!
Based on the manga by CLAMP, and directed by Morio Asaka (Gunslinger Girl), Chobits is about the so-called Persocom computers. Not your average compiler, these machines look like toys, animals, and even people. This 26-episode series is also set for release in 2011.
