Bandai Entertainment Nabs Gurren Lagann, Gundam 00
At the New York Comic Con, Bandai Entertainment announced their acquisition of Gurren Lagann. The show will be released on DVD in two waves between 2008 and 2009. In 2008, the title will be released in three subtitle-only boxsets. The subtitle-only boxes will hit stores in July, August, and September. In 2009, Bandai will begin releasing a dubbed version of the show. Previously, ADV Films held the license to Gurren Lagann, which disappeared off of release charts earlier this year. However, Bandai's dub of the show will not use any material from ADV's production.
Bandai Entertainment also announced that they acquired the rights to Mobile Suit Gundam 00.
