Madman Acquisition Round Up April 2013

We’ve just announced a whole bunch of titles at Supanova Expo in Melbourne and the Gold Coast. Here’s a quick summary of what you can look forward to from us in the near future.



The highly anticipated third film in the rebuild of Evangelion franchise is finally coming to Australia and New Zealand. The film will be featured as part of REEL ANIME 2013, in cinemas September / October 2013.



Production I.G. (GHOST IN THE SHELL) and Kenji Kamiyama (GHOST IN THE SHELL STAND ALONE COMPLEX, EDEN OF THE EAST) have teamed up to revive one of Japan’s most loved manga series by Shotaro Ishinori creator of KAMEN RIDER and also Osamu Tezuka’s assistant on the original ASTRO BOY manga. This film will also be the first time an anime will be screened in Stereoscopic 3D as part of REEL ANIME 2013, in cinemas September / October.


Hell has frozen over, but at least the pizza is still fresh and hot! SAMURAI PIZZA CATS will finally be coming to DVD in Australia and New Zealand this year! Featuring the original English language dub that you know and love, look out for a deluxe release of this title before the end of the year.


In the future, even just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty – and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the fine line between good and evil. The great equalizer in the war against thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the probability that a citizen will turn criminal. There are no trials. Only Enforcers, Inspectors, and the Dominator. Commit a crime in your mind – and the Dominator will make sure you pay the ultimate price.

Streaming season starts soon on the Madman Screening Room.

So exactly what’s going to happen when Hachiman Hikigaya, an isolated high school student with no friends, no interest in making any and a belief that everyone else’s supposedly great high school experiences are either delusions or outright lies, is coerced by a well meaning faculty member into joining the one member “Services Club” run by Yukino Yukinoshita, who’s smart, attractive and generally considers everyone in her school to be her complete inferior? But wait, we haven’t added the third caustic ingredient yet! Meet Yui Yuigahama, who’s cute, bright, cheerful and apparently needs the service club’s help to bake cookies.
