Lost in Translation
"Joey" of Anime West's "Team Abcb" division has announced some completed projects. "We've just finished our Twilight Q2 project," he said in a public statement. The sequel to the successful OAV "Twilight Q", "Twilight Q2" was directed by Mamoru Oshii of Ghost in the Shell fame. The 50-minute OAV will be on the same tape as "Angel's Egg", Oshii's award winning 1983 film, featuring designs by Squaresoft's Yoshitaka Amano.
Also just finished is Voogie's Angel 1-2, and translations have arrived for episode 3. After timing is complete, the 3 parts will be sent to their distributors. Other projects in the works include Slam Dunk 13-16, Sakura Diaries 5-8, and Kirara (which will be given priority when the LD's arrive, Joey says).
