Funimation has announced that it has bought the rights to the two new shows that will be airing in the Noitamina block in Japan. The first is ‘House of Five Leaves’ which is based on the manga of the same name and is being animated by Manglobe of Samurai Champloo fame. The second is ‘The Tatami Galaxy’ which is from studio Madhouse and director Masaaki Yuasa (Kaiba and Kemonozume). ‘House of Five Leaves’ is available with english subtitles right now from Funimations website: http://www.funimation.com/. ‘ The Tatami Galaxy’ will be available with subtitles on April 22nd at 11:45 AM — just one hour after it premiers in Japan. This is awesome news to anime fans and especially to older fans as these are two shows which I was very suprised to see picked up by an American distributor so quickly, especially ”The Tatami Galaxy’ which has an art style which allows it to immediately stand apart from all of the other shows airing this season.
