Posted by LadyPSerenity in News Articles July 20, 2009 at 10:32:08 PM

FUNimation announced on the 18th that they had acquired the home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise rights to the first season of the post-apocalyptic sci-fi anime series Casshern Sins from Tatsunoko Productions.

The anime series is directed by Shigeyasu Yamauchi (Blood+, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z), produced by Tatsunoko Productions (Speed Racer, Robotech, Gatchaman) and is animated by Madhouse (Claymore, Hellsing Ultimate, Death Note, Gungrave). FUNimation plans to release the series in the Fall of 2010.

Casshern Sins is a revisioning of the early seventies series "Neo-Human Casshern" presented with a unique animation style. This sci-fi android series begins in a time when humans are subjugated by androids. Desperate for freedom, humans summon a mysterious girl named Luna in order to save mankind. Braiking Boss, leader of the androids, fears what this girl may do, and sends three assassins to remove her. The strongest of these assassins, Casshern, manages to track down and kill Luna. This triggers a cataclysmic event which sets in motion the end of the world.

Hundreds of years later, the world is in ruin and both humans and androids fear for their lives. Casshern, who has disappeared since Luna's death, returns to the world with no memory. Thus starts his journey of self discovery and redemption that will determine the future of both humans and androids. ~FUNimation Entertainment
