Tonight on KNN we hear about some very kick ass announcements from Hanabee that took place at the Supernova Expo, Sydney 2013.  I'm James Kaiser and this is KNN.  The first of these announcements is probably one of the biggest anime releases of the year with Hanabee announcing that they will be releasing the classic "Revolutionary Girl Utena" in three volumes and will be hitting the stores on, September 18 2013 (volume one), October 16 2013 (volume two), and November 20 2013 (volume three).  All three volumes will come in a very nice looking box and will come with books that will have some very nice content in them.  Moving on to the second announcement where we have a comedy series called "Daily Lives of High School Boys" that is from the same director that brought us shows like, School Rumble, and Gintama.  This release is set to hit shelves on July 31 2013 (that's not far away) and it will include all twelve episodes and a bonus OVA for your pleasure.  The last release that Hanabee announced is another big one that also celebrates this series 40th anniversary.  The show I'm on about is "Lupin the Third: A Woman Called Fujiko Mine" and will be released in two volumes with volume one hitting shelves October 16 2013, and volume two will be released November 20 2013.   There will also be a limited edition combo hardcover book that's sure to please you guys.  That's it for this edition of KNN and for more info on the products you can go to the Hanabee site at, and you can also click "Read More" to read on what these shows.  Anyway, I'm James Kaiser and thank you for tuning into KNN.  (Info on shows after the jump).

So, you clicked the "Read More" button eh?  Good job.  The show descriptions are right here.

Revolutionary Girl Utena

"A chivalrous pink-haired adventuress will revolutionize the world!

"Never lose that strength or nobility, even when you grow up."  When Utena was just a child and in the depths of sorrow, she found salvation in those words.  They were the words of a prince, who wrapped her in his rose-scented embraced and bestowed upon her both a ring and a promise that it will lead her to him again.  She never forgot the encounter.  In fact, she was so impressed that she spired to be like the prince and also help those in need.

Now a spirited teenager, Utena attends the prestigious Ohtori Academy.  However, her strong sense of chivalry soon places her at odds with her school's student council and thrusts her into a series of mysterious and dangerous duels against its members."

Daily Lives of High School Boys

"High school life has never seemed so strange when it's been so average.

Welcome to the daily loves of Tadakuni, Hidenori and Yoshitake, studants at the all-boys academy of Sanada North High School!

Here in the story you will not find any world revolutions, a teenaged hero in crisis, a star crossed love story or giant fighting robots...well, not in reality anyway.  (In the mind of an average teenage boy however, the possibilities are endless.)  Instead take a step back and embrace the wild fun teenage life has to offer trivial pursuits and insane thoughts ( just who exactly is the better looking one in the group?) and in the knowledge that sometimes reality can be stranger than fiction.

Jokes and laughs are abound as your average high school life is brought to larger than life clarity in Daily Lives Of High School Boys."

Lupin the Third: A Woman Called Fujiko Mine

"Behind every great man, there is a great woman.

A cult has become the target of Lupin III's latest heist but he might not be the only one after the treasures that their leader has kept hidden.  It seems the alluring lover of the cult leader may just be a thief herself and more than capable to handle Lupin in the race for the treasure.

But in this case to outsmart the other, this little game takes a twist for the unexpected when Lupin has set his sights beyond the cult's treasure to the female thief herself.  Her name, Fujiko Mine, and Lupin may just be a little infatuated with this femme fatale beauty.  What he doesn't know is that behind her wily charms lies a greater tragedy at hand.

This is the story of how Lupin III, the greatest thief of his generation, met his match in Fujiko Mine."

Expect to see reviews of all these products in the future.
