While I've been keeping tabs of what anime has been picked up for localization, it wasn't until I received the latest issue of Otaku USA that I realized just how much great content is on the way. Some of it is already being simulcast and others are heading for DVD/Blu-ray releases in North America. All in all, there's a ton of great, new content seeing official release here!
As you can see, this issue's cover dedicates itself to Blue Exorcist, which is no doubt a huge anime airing in Japan right now. It seems like this series might be the breakout hit of the entire season! The best news is, while you can watch episodes right now, the series is slated for release in the states as well. I know I'll be adding this one to my collection as soon as it comes out!
Also getting very detailed, gorgeous previews in this issue are Tiger and Bunny, the film Redline, Madoka Magica and many others. The three above are really stand-out anime that I've been keeping my eye on for awhile now. In particular, Madoka Magica seems to be something really special. There's much, much more to it than the cutesy exterior would have you believe!
There are hundreds of great anime series' out there right now, and the good stuff just keeps coming. Whether you're in Japan or looking forward to localized releases, it's a very good time to be an anime fan. While things may have seemed a tad underwhelming for awhile there, it's very clear that localized content is on a definite upswing.
