Funimation Licenses New Evangelion Movie, Soul Eater

Funimation, to wrap up the year, has announced two new licenses after announcing 10 new licenses over the last 10 days. Their new licenses are Media Factory’s shonen series Soul Eater, which they will be releasing in four half-season sets, and the first of four new films re-making/re-telling Neon Genesis Evangelion, Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone.

There had been some speculation amongst anime fan sites (particularly AnimeVice.Com) when Funimation started their 10 Days Of Licenses that these shows would be on the list, and some confusion when they didn’t show up in their announcement this morning.

According to AnimeVice, Funimation announced on their Twitter that there were more shows to be announced, and then dropped the announcement for Soul Eater and Eva 1.0 around 1 and 7 PM (respectively) Eastern Time.

If Funimation decides to announce anything else before midnight, We’ll let you know as soon as we hear about it.
