Manga Entertainment has confirmed through its twitter feed that it will release the series Shiki (pictured) next year. Shiki originated as a series of horror novels written by Fuyumi Ono (Twelve Kingdoms, Ghost Hunt). In 2007, artist Ryu Fujisaki (Hoshin Engi, Soul Hunter) announced that he would adapt the novels into a manga, which would then be adapted into a TV anime for Fuji TV's prominent noitaminA late-night content block. Funimation is distributing the series in America.
Manga also said that it would acquire Black Butler II, the sequel series to the original Victorian supernatural anime Black Butler, but gave no further details.
Manga also asked its twitter followers, “Which One Piece movies have an English dub available?,” adding that not enough people would buy the DVD without the dub.
