Hellsing Director Umanosuke Iida Passes Away
Iida directed last half of Gundam: The 08th MS Team after Takeyuki Kanda's passing
Anime director Jun Kamiya reported on his Twitter account on Saturday that fellow director Umanosuke Iida had passed away, and manga creator Koichi Tokita confirmed the news. Iida was 49.
Iida had directed the Hellsing, Tide-Line Blue, Mighty Space Miners, and CB Chara Nagai Go World anime projects. He had assumed the directorial reins of Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team after the first director of that anime, Takeyuki Kanda, passed away suddenly during production.
Iida also drew storyboards for The Big O, Birdy the Mighty Decode, Brave King GaoGaiGar Final Grand Glorious Gathering, Cowboy Bebop, Gin Rei, and Shangri-La.
Ufotable and Type-Moon team up to create another anime! The very same team-up that brought us the Kara no Kyoukai adaptions. Which were freaking awesome by the way, watch it if you haven't already
entirely different from the Take-Moon project as well

Can someone explain me how Kira yamato can own Setsuna F. Seiei? I found the former a bland character imo. Setsuna F. Seiei is gundam's best character ever, he had more depth and he is an awesome pilot
there's a reason why everyone calls him Jesus Yamato
Setsuna got his own movie this year, and he STILL isn't as popular
I don't get it either D: I found almost all of the 00 pilots more interesting in character and likable than Kira -__-
Maybe it's because a lot of people hated on the movie, and vented the hate on Setsuna :/
I'm surprised Kintoki is this high,especially considering how Gintama's anime was missing for so long.
Norwegian Wood, a best-selling novel by Haruki Murakami is being made into a movie.
Wow, that definitely looks like something worth looking forward to! MatsuKen and Kikuchi Rinko look pretty nice in the 60s' look, especially Kikuchi Rinko. It just suits her - she wore that sort of style quite well in Liar Game as well I can't wait till it's available to be watched (it's in cinemas in Japan right now). It was already aired at a couple of film festivals and will be airing in the UK next year. I can only hope it comes to my country as well
You know..I know K-ON is famous and all that but couldn't someone else take the second place?
It's funny how something without plot can go that far.
Oh well, but angel beats! is up there! That makes me smile and I think I'm going to rewatch it soon.
I'm surprised characters from Index are not up there, seeing how railgun is a popular anime.
The Type-Moon/ufotable collaboration confirmed to be an anime adaption of the light Novel "Fate/Zero" (a prequel to Fate/Stay Night)
awesome news, especially if its ufotable doing it, not DEEN
Moar Fate/Stay!? I'm all for it More Saber is always good, especially backstory from the Holy Grail war. Any news on when that is going to be? I don't see it mentioned on this cover, but I may be blind.
Reminds me that I have to get around to watching Unlimited Blade Works soon as well.
