THIS UGLY YET BEAUTIFUL WORLD
FROM STUDIO GAINAX, THE MAKERS OF NEON GENESIS AND FLCL.


Takeru has a very special place in this universe, he just doesn't know it yet. When he meets a beautiful girl named Hikari who, literally, falls from the stars, he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime!

Hikari has no idea who she is and is not like other girls. Her name may mean “light”, but she has a dark history and an even darker future. One that will change Takeru and his friends forever, and show them all just how beautiful yet cruel this universe can be!

Directed by Shouji Saeki (FLCL, MAHOROMATIC) the series is enlivened by rich characters, gripping action, and the inventive animation that GAINAX is known for. THIS UGLY YET BEAUTIFUL WORLD is a fitting celebration of the pioneering studio's 20th anniversary. Vol.1 and Collectors Box will be available this January

GODANNAR
THE ULTIMATE MARRIAGE OF MAN, WOMAN AND MACHINE!


Five years ago, as the Mimetic Beasts laid waste to Japan, Dannar pilot, Go, saved young Anna Aoi's life. Now, as they prepare to march down the aisle, a new Beast appears and Go is summoned into battle once more. But he's not going alone, not if his blushing bride to be can help it!

It's a honeymoon from hell as two stubborn mecha pilots bump heads, egos and other bits; but if Anna and Go can mate their robots' interlocking parts, they'll form the ultimate marriage of man, woman and machine! The battle of the sexes and the battle for the future of mankind are fought simultaneously in the wildest giant robot series ever, GODANNAR!

GODANNAR is a genre-bending mecha anime best described as equal parts action, adventure, and domestic soap opera. Cute girls, giant robots and comedy combine to create a hot new series!
