    Guest Review: Eden of the East

    Title: Eden of the East Release Date: October 19th, 2010 Publisher: Funimation Entertainment Imagine you’ve just graduated college, and took a trip to Washington, D.C. to celebrate. While snapping a photo of the White House, you encounter a naked man with gun, a cell phone, and no memories. Do you lend him your coat? Do you follow him back to Japan? Saki Morimi finds herself in this situation in the first episode of the anime Eden of the East, soon to be released from Funimation Entertainment. The naked man reveals himself (not like that) to be Akira Takizawa, a young man who lives in a shopping mall and may or may not be a terrorist. Eden of the East follows Takizawa’s increasingly-bizarre journey to find out who he is and why he voluntarily erased his memories. Takizawa’s cell phone is also a mystery, as it contains 10 billion yen and

    Warner’s New Redbox/Netflix Rental Policies Bound to Bring Out the Pirates

    Today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced a multi-year distribution agreement with Redbox that will require Warner new-release DVD and Blu-Ray titles to only become available 28 days after official release. (Netflix has agreed to the same terms.) What does that mean for you, the eager DVD renter-to-be? Well, as far as Redbox goes, you’re going to need to be a lot faster when attempting to obtain Warner titles on the first day of availability (well, as long as your local Redbox has fairly heavy traffic). Netflix users need to decide what to rent and put it on their list a lot earlier — the first two releases to fall under the new rule, The Invention of Lying and Whiteout, currently have a longer-than-usual wait list. (Netflix did actually get something out of the deal — the ability to stream more Warner titles.) It also means that piracy of Warner titles
