A week in links (Anime movies up the wazoo version)

Wow, in just the past few days alone a TON of movie announcements hit the web, ranging from the obvious to the totally unexpected.  The big one of course is Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu (The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi), which aired after their season finale.  Trigun finally has a website with details on their movie, and Gantz is reported to have a live-action film coming sometime in 2011.  Another remake of Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo is coming as well.

Along with Canaan and Higashi no Eden films, that's like…nine movies altogether!  2009 is certainly year of the anime movie, no doubt about it. 

Speaking of films, I finally got to watch First Squad, and while it was unique and interesting (the entire film is in Russian, as opposed to Japanese) the action was something of a let down and the quality of the animation went kinda south after the first 30 minutes.  I've never seen Band of Brothers, but many people compared it to that.  It was weird watching it go from animation to live-action multiple times during the movie.

Anyways, on to the links!

Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya Film Announced for 2010 (Updated) – Anime News Network
I like KyoAni, but after the Endless Eight debacle I'm not so pumped for what they might do to the movie.  If they troll me one more time, I might just swear off Haruhi forever…knock on wood.

Gantz Manga Being Adapted into 2 Live-Action Films in 2011
The two main leads have already been announced.  Never seen them act before, but according to a few sources it's a pretty big deal.

Canned Dogs reports about the new Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo movie, which apparently doesn't follow the anime adaptation sadly.

Animated clip shows Street Fighter characters fighting
Crazy fan-made animated short that shows Ryu fighting Guy* (thanks Andy for correcting me) in a somewhat familiar fight choreography seen in a somewhat popular anime (Naruto).  Still, kinda neat I guess.

Boy you thought that last one was the last of the "movie" links, huh?  Boy were you wrong, haha!  (No seriously, this is the last one)
