For those who were unable to attend NYCC Saturday and/or Sunday, you missed out on the special premiere screening of the new Mass Effect anime movie - Mass Effect: Paragon Lost! Slated for a Blu-Ray/DVD release December 28, 2012, Paragon Lost is the animated prequel to Mass Effect 3. It follows Alliance Marine James Vega as he and his team face off against The Collectors - a group of aliens hell bent on capturing the populace of an unsuspecting colony for unknown means.
If Mass Effect isn't your cup of tea, then for all you Summer Wars fans, FUNimation has also given tentative news of a 2013 release date of Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki! What makes this news so tentative is that there is a strong possibility (if fan response is strong enough) of a theatrical release of the film. So go out there and give FUNimation your support so you can see Wolf Children on the big screen!
