Manga Entertainment summer Convention & Screening contest, Astro Boy contest, and PR for their recent releases

With all the focus on the Evangelion Movies for the past year or so, it's easy to forget that Manga Entertainment actually has other titles. Below are some miscelaneous items from Manga's recent PR covering some ongoing contests, upcoming theatrical showings and recent releases.


Astro Boy Contest: And now that you've entered the Death and Rebirth Contest, might as well try your luck in the Astro Boy Contest. Ten winners will each take home a limited-edition Astro Boy cel (background included), the first three volumes of the Astro Boy VHS series, plus a bunch of other cool Manga prizes. This contest is open to residents of the US and Canada over 18 years of age. http://www.astro-boy.net/contest.html.
