FUNimation Picks Up Two Titles
FUNimation announced that they acquired the domestic rights to two new anime titles. The Jyushin Enbu - Hero Tales anime series and Master of Martial Hearts OVA will join FUNimation's growing lineup. Jyushin Enbu will be sold in two thirteen-episode sets, with the first volume hitting this fall. Master of Martial Hearts will be released in a single volume in the spring of 2011.
Jyushin Enbu is based on the manga of the same title by Hiromu Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist), Ryou Yashiro, and Jin-Zhou Huan. The series was directed by Osamu Sekita (Ghost Talkers Daydream, Mobile Suit SD Gundam). The series features voice work from Akemi Kanda (Clannad, Negima!) and Atsuko Tanaka (Ghost in the Shell, RaXephon), among others.
Master of Martial Hearts was originally released across five volumes, under the title Zettai Shougeki ~Platonic Heart. The series features character designs by erotic game designer Jin Happobi (Boin, Girl next Door), and voice work by Kaori Nazuka (Eureka Seven, Spice and Wolf).
