DIGITAL MANGA INC. announces SYNCH-POINT production division and the acquisition of I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL and FLCL.

Over a month ago, Studio Pierrot's website (www.studiopierrot.com) announced the acquisition of Tenshi ni Narumon ("Gonna Be an Angel"). However, no production company was announced.

Digital Manga has just sent out a press release stating that their new division, SYNCH-POINT (www.synch-point.com) has acquired the hit Gainax FLCL OVA series and the I'm Gonna Be An Angel! TV series.

The full press release, including descriptions of the titles, can be read here:
Los Angeles, CA - DIGITAL MANGA INC., is proud to announce SYNCH-POINT (www.synch-point.com) a new production division, which will be producing English language versions of Japanese animation.

SYNCH-POINT is also proud to announce the acquisition of I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL (TENSHI NI NARUMON) and FLCL for North American distribution.

With an original concept by HEAVEN PROJECT and produced by BANDAI VISUAL, STUDIO PIERROT, and TV TOKYO, I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL is a 26-episode TV series that revolves around Noelle, a strange and innocent girl with a halo on her head. She meets and falls in love with Yuusuke, and moves her family of witches, vampires and demons into his house. But Yuusuke has a crush on Natsumi. When Noelle overhears Yuusuke referring to Natsumi as an angel, Noelle vows to become Yuusuke's angel. But what does it really mean to become an angel? And why does Noelle already have a halo on her head?

FLCL is the wacky sci-fi OAV series from GAINAX (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION) and PRODUCTION I.G (BLOOD, JIN ROH). Naota has a problem. His older brother is out of the country. Now Naota seems to be seeing an awful lot of his brother's girlfriend, Mamimi. And things get even harrier when Haruko whizzes in on her Vespa. She whacks Naota on the forehead with a bass guitar and now all kinds of things are growing from there. We haven't even mentioned the aliens yet. What the heck is going on here? With outrageous characters, stunning visuals, and shocking gags, FLCL takes animation to a new level.
