The North American anime distributor Viz Media has announced at its second Saturday panel at Comic-Con International that it has acquired the upcoming Inuyasha the Final Act (Inuyasha Kanketsu-hen) anime series and the Kekkaishi anime series. Inuyasha the Final Act continues beyond where the first anime series ended and adapts the story from the final 21 compiled book volumes of Rumiko Takahashi's original manga. It will premiere in Japan this fall. The panelists screened a trailer from the 2006-2008 anime adaptation of Yellow Tanabe's Kekkaishi supernatural action manga.
Viz will release the first print volume of Takahashi's Rin-ne manga in October, after having already posted the manga online.
Update: More background information added.
