Cyberpunk classic Armitage III will be available tomorrow for the first time in it’s completion. That means all 4 OVAs and 2 movies bundled together into one DVD package. Expect to shell out $25-$30 to get your hands on this very solid piece of animation. Don’t have the cash?? All of it is streaming thanks to Funimation and Hulu. But take it from us, this is essential for any collection.
Armitage is a brash cybernetic cop who sports a racy wardrobe and an attitude to match it. Patrolling a riotous metropolis on Mars, she’s got a grudge against a world where androids are at the mercy of unsympathetic humans. In the initial OVAs—also coalesced as the feature film Poly Matrix—Armitage risks everything to track the man responsible for several vicious android murders and to solve the enigma of her existence. Dual Matrix continues years later on Earth where she battles an obsessive doctor and his deadly Armitage replicas.

Swordsmiths forge “Spear of Longinus” from Evangelion anime
The replica of “Spear of Longinus” that appeared in “Neon Genesis Evangelion” anime has been forged. The sword/spear remained faithful in looks to the original and measures 3.3 m (over 10 feet).
The sword display will be available to the public from July 2012 at the Bizen Osafune Setouchi City, Okayama Prefecture Museum of swords (Osafune). The former township of Osafune is best known as the home of some of the most skilled swordsmiths in Japanese history.
The Evangelion exhibit will run from July 14 to September 17. The same museum hosted an exhibit with the weapons and armor from the Sengoku Basara game last summer, and 20,000 visitors (mostly young people) visited.
Ok, that’s completely CRACKTASTIC and I can’t even be upset with it.
