Funimation Opens Rin Site, Announces 2nd Online Panel

posted on 2009-12-12 01:34 EST

The official blog of the North American anime distributor Funimation announced on Thursday that the new official website for the RIN - Daughters of Mnemosyne anime is now open and is streaming an uncut trailer. (You must be 18 to access the website.)

Funimation will release the entire six-episode video series on January 19. The series was released in Japan in 2008.

Director Shigeru Ueda (Elemental Gelade, Tales of Symphonia), screenwriter Hiroshi Ohnogi (Noein, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Aquarion), and the animators at Xebec (Martian Successor Nadesico, Fafner, Heroic Age) created this graphic, "hard-boiled science-fiction action" series. The story follows a seemingly ordinary office lady named Rin who is secretly a private investigator — and nearly indestructible due to supernatural powers.

The Funimation blog also announced on Friday that they will host another online panel. The FUNiCon 2.0 online panel will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CST on Thursday, December 17. Adam Sheehan and Justin Rojas will once again host the panel, along with guests Mike McFarland (ADR Director of Evangelion 1.11 and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) and J. Micheal Tatum (Spice and Wolf's Lawrence, ADR Director of RIN - Daughters of Mnemosyne). Questions for the panel must be submitted ahead of time, and Funimation will accept e-mail questions until 5:00 p.m. CST on Wednesday, December 16.

Funimation hosted their first online panel in October. The first panel is available for viewing on Funimation's YouTube channel.

The manga publisher Tokyopop started hosting a similar series of "webinars" in August.
