Anime Summer 2007 Breif

Well, it was a busy summer for me personally, and a GREAT summer for those paying attention to the anime community. I haven't been around to give an update on a lot of the big news that has happened this past season, but you may have heard about some of these exciting headlines:

Evangelion movie trailers are available to view now, but I'll be darned if I can find a good one (though Bart Howard's infamous song never sounded so good). In addition, the first movie has very recently screened in Japan; it had a great attendance.

The first live-action Death Note is being considered by a Hollywood studio for liscencing (via Warner Brothers USA) or a remake (like what happpened to The Ring and The Grudge) as demands for an English release ensues.

Satoshi Kon's Paprika screened at dozens of summer indie film fests worldwide.

Anime news sources were imbued by critics raving for the release of, yet another, Witchblade series. This one promising to be as good as the rest (geez, look at this trailer). Volume one due out this month.

And, of course, a second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is in production now, and will be ready to air this fall or early winter.

And there's the news! If you think I missed anything of importance, please let me know.

Having seen the first Deathnote in the theatres, and knowing NOTHING about the anime or manga, I think America should do a remake.
Because that's what they do :P
Seriously... Japan doesn't put much stock in special effects in movies... mainly relying on shadows and such for horror films and the viewers imagination.
Granted, this isn't a horror film, but Japanese Actors and lack of special effects doesn't seem to me like a big seller in the States...
