Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker (Blu-ray/DVD), Early Review
By Marc | May 7th, 2012

The Fanboy Review is back with its second ever joint review! Join Alex and me as we take an early look at the first animated adaptation of the popular Dragon Age franchise.



Co-produced by EA and Funimation Entertainment, Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker made its debut in Japanese cinemas back in February and will be hitting US shelves on May 29.  This is the first bit of animation that is a Funimation ‘original’ (rather than a licensed film/show.) How does their first original production hold up? Continue reading

Avengers Season 2?
By Marc | September 15th, 2009

I recently got some info that the cast of the upcoming Avengers cartoon (which recently wrapped recording for Season 1) have been informed that Season 2 has already been greenlit based on the quality of episodes coming in.
One thing of interest to add.  Recently Marvel regained animated and television rights to Spider-Man, is it possible the wall crawler may feature in Season 2?

Stitch! Anime Coming to the USA
By Marc | July 14th, 2009

Fans of both Disney and anime should be happy because it appears the Disney/Madhouse anime production Stitch! (a spin-off of the Lilo and Stitch franchise) will be coming to the USA relatively soon.
I’ve been able to confirm that pre-production work has began on an English version of Stitch! at Studiopolis using the normal crop of Los Angeles area dub actors (no idea if Chris Sanders, one of the directors of the original film, will be reprising his role as Stitch).  Should be interesting to see how an English dub, of a Japanese anime, based on a Disney property will turn out.

The Avengers- Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Casting Info
By Marc | October 14th, 2008

Little nugget of exclusive (as far as I’m aware) info from your friendly neighborhood SpiderMarc…

The new Avengers cartoon will be recorded at anime favorite studio Studiopolis, and they are currently in the midst of trying out some of your favorite actors.  Could we get a Crispin Freeman Ant Man?  A Kyle Hebert Thor?  Wendee Lee as the Wasp?  Who knows, but it’ll be interesting (and does this bode well for a Steve Blum guest appearance as everyone’s favorite snikt bub mutant Wolverine?)

Not really an anime actor, but I’d love Frank Welker to get cast as Hulk and do his Krunk voice.

{That cast stuff is just me theorizing, minus a few people I have no knowledge of anyone specific trying out..}

….AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will update with more when/if I’m allowed to say more…

I’m not sure what I liked better about this episode…  the story?  the art?…nah.  It is completely about the mock anime song.  Was even better in HD.

Random Fun- August 8th, 2008
By Marc | August 8th, 2008

With Saber Rider getting a full DVD release soon I felt we had to celebrate in some way. What better way than having a parody of it’s sister series Voltron from fan favorite show Robot Chicken.

Voltron got TOTALLY served! (Personally I prefer the original song that they had to remove for legal reasons, but oh well)

What Happened To the DVD Release of MCoG?
By Marc | August 8th, 2008

Awhile ago we learned that Fabulous Films would be releasing the classic series Mysterious Cities of Gold on DVD in a few different countries, the USA included.

Mysterious Cities of Gold was a coproduction between quite a few different companies and groups and is one of the first anime (the first?) that aired on Nickelodeon back in the 1980s.

It came out in the UK, it came out in Australia, and everything has been silent on the USA front, so what happened? Continue reading

Ben 10 Secret of the Omnitrix DVD Issue
By Marc | August 6th, 2008

Since I know a few people out there (myself included) are Ben 10 fans I thought I would go over an issue with the Ben 10 Season 4 DVD set.

The “Secret of the Omnitrix” movie (all 4 versions of it: Red, Blue, Gold, and Red w/ trivia popups) are on the second disk of the Season 4 set. Continue reading
