Eva 1.0 Movie Coming this Fall / One Piece Coming Fast & Hard Next Year

FUNimation has confirmed that it will screen the original Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone film in North American theaters later this summer. It will then release the updated Evangelion: 1.01 You Are (Not) Alone version on DVD this fall (probably October or November), followed by the Evangelion: 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone version on DVD and BD in spring 2010. These staggered releases of the different versions will mirror how the film was released in Japan. Release dates have not yet been announced.

Viz announced at its Anime Expo panel on Friday that it will publish volumes 24 through 53 of the One Piece manga series between January and June 2010 - about five per month or one volume about every 6 days for 6 months - yikes! Volume 53 only just shipped in Japan in March, and Viz's own Shonen Jump magazine will publish the latest chapters from Japan starting this fall.
