Madman | March  2012 | Bleach The Movie: Fade to Black, Mardock Scramble, Rosario + Vampire and more!

As summer comes to an end and 2012 really gets into gear, we’ve got some absolutely amazing releases for you this month. Not to mention an acquisition announcement that will just blow your mind! I’m extremely delighted and happy to announce this new title and I’m sure a lot of fans will be too. Please look forward to it in the coming months.

Onto what’s hot in March and first up we have the much awaited BLEACH THE MOVIE: FADE TO BLACK. Rukia’s memory has been erased and in turn no one remembers who Ichigo actually is. What a setup to conqueror the heavens! Then we move onto one of the most stunningly beautiful anime I’ve seen in quite a while – MARDOCK SCRAMBLE: THE FIRST COMPRESSION. Featuring amazing visuals and a truly gripping sci-fi story. Fans of GHOST IN THE SHELL and ERGO PROXY will really get a kick out of it.

On a lighter note, we will also be releasing the first seasons of both ROSARIO + VAMPIRE and HEAVEN’S LOST PROPERTY. Both are full of fan service goodness so make sure you get into it. That’s all for now and remember to give us your feedback on our social media sites.

Finally, don't forget to vote for the TOP 20 ANIME OF ALL TIME. There is still time for you to let your voice be known

COMMENT OF THE MONTH

"Ahhh... Madman... anime is like a drug, you get addicted and hooked and you keep wanting more. But this is a good drug, and I thank you for keeping it coming, coz' anime can take us away into different lands, countries and places. To get away from all the bad and relax. So I say thank you and please don't ever stop :) "
