Sunrise News - New Gundam Site Registered & Possible New Distribution Partners
Anime News Network has recently posted two quick stories about Sunrise, the company behind the various Gundam anime, as well as Tiger & Bunny and Valvrave.
First, Sunrise has registered a new website, gundam-bf.net. No other information has been revealed about this. Assuming it is a new Gundam project, is it a new anime, manga, game, OVA, or something else completely? Hopefully, more will come out about this soon.
Second, Sunrise is in talks with the distributors Sentai Filmworks and Funimation to distribute Bandai Entertainment titles. Sunrise is currently releasing Mobile Suit Gundam UC through Right Stuff and would like to use other distributors in a similar fashion. Will a deal like this lead to cheaper Gundam releases here in the US? Perhaps even previously unreleased content here as well?
