It's time for imports with God Eater 2, Metal Max 4, and a robot war that we don't even bother numbering. Plus Bravely Second, Granblue Fantasy, and the way that anime should embrace old games.

At Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 on Thursday, American media conglomerate Walt Disney unveiled a three-minute pilot video of Stitch!, the television series animated by Japan's Madhouse studio for the Japanese market. Disney's original Lilo & Stitch! film (pictured at right) and its earlier spinoffs centered on a space alien named Stitch! and the Hawaiian girl who adopts him. This new project will feature a new girl, tentatively named Hanako, who hails from southern Japan's Okinawan islands and knows karate. The pilot includes traditional Okinawan music. The AFP news source posted a photograph that shows Stitch! and the new Japanese heroine. (In the linked page, click on the photo for a slightly larger view.) Disney also covered its Fireball production with Toei Animation and its Robo Crosser production with Telecom Animation Film.
