From GoHands – the studio responsible for the cyberpunk anime film series MARDOCK SCRAMBLE, and the enigmatic writers’ collective ‘GoRA Project’ – comes K, a new and wholly original anime series set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course than our own.

K follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a psychic war between seven kings. Yashiro Isana, also known as Shiro, is wanted for a crime he has no recollection of committing. He finds himself being hunted by the groups Homura, led by Mikoto Suoh, “The Red King,” and Scepter 4, led by Reisi Munakata, “The Blue King”. While on the run, a young man named Kuroh Yatogami helps him. This fated encounter will change Shiro’s life forever.

K will be streaming from Wednesday November 14 on www.madman.com.au/screeningroom. New episodes will go online at 12pm every Wednesday. A home video release will be announced in 2013.

BLOOD C

A new addition to the BLOOD: THE LAST VAMPIRE saga!

Horrifying beasts with a hunger for human flesh prey on the citizens of a quiet town. In moonlit twilight, Saya slays the monsters and returns home drenched in blood. As the attacks increase in frequency and intensity, her enemies relay cryptic messages about a broken contract. Limbs are torn from flesh and skulls are crushed and devoured while the huntress struggles with paralyzing visions and gaping holes in her memory. When the humans Saya promised to protect reveal the sickening truth about her role in the violence, she learns her mission isn’t as clear cut as she thought-and her most sadistic foe of all is so close she can taste it.

The Sinners launch an attack, and in the process, kidnap Ichigo’s younger sister, Yuzu, dragging her with them to Hell. With the help of a mysterious man named Kokuto, Ichigo and his friends must now travel into the depths of Hell to stop the Sinners and save Yuzu, unaware that their actions could bring Hell to the World of the Living.

FATE/STAY NIGHT – UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS

Having spent the last ten years of his life studying under a mysterious sorcerer, Shiro Emiya has become a Magi – summoning a mystical female warrior ‘servant’ of incredible power named Saber. They will stand together in the ultimate test of sorcery and magic, the Holy Grail War. But will Shiro’s own feelings for Saber interfere with their goal? 

To win the contest means to take the risk of losing everything, even as he also begins to empathize with members of the rival battleteams. While seven will enter the battle, only one team will leave, and the winners will receive the prize of the Grail itself and their greatest wish granted.  Will that wish be worth the price Shiro must ultimately pay? 

The battle is on in FATE/STAY NIGHT – UNLILMITED BLADE WORKS!

Available on DVD and Digital in March 2013

Thanks for that Madman… I love how you won’t be releasing the reast off the volumes for Hellsing Ultimate and will instead be releasing collections. I just LOVE how you reward those that have been your costumers in the past. I applaud you.

Full marks and cookies to the guys (and girls) at Madman. Have absolutely made my day by announcing Sword Art Online and Fate/Stay Night ~ Unlimited Blade Works. Both will be well worth the $$$ I’ll be throwing their way when these hit the shelves.

Haven’t heard of K before, but I hope it’ll be as good as the last original anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica. ^^

I kinda have to agree with BloodiRose… ;A; I didn’t realise you said ‘collections’ – and that kinda… sucks. I’ve been buying each Hellsing dvd for a a friend as gifts– I hope I don’t get stuck buying a dvd she already has or something stupid… But if this is the cheaper option for fans (*crosses fingers*) then I’m all for it! … <3
