FUNimation's video and marketing crew has been getting their groove on this week with lots of new episodes added to their YouTube channel, including adding an impressive 40+ episodes of Soul Eater to have the whole series out there now for fans. In addition to that, they've pulled together a number of clips, trailers and promos in the last few days which we've collated here in order to give it all a chance to shine. Some of the clips are for shows juts released, others coming as far away as march, but also the latest for Summer Wars and a new holiday video with lots of fun behind the scenes goofiness from the FUNimation crew. Check 'em out below.
"Happy Holidays from FUNimation! We had a lot of B-roll this from this year's videos, so we put together a quick mash-up. "
"Here's a collection of the Fan Art submissions from our Black Butler Fan Art Contest. A winner will be announced each day from January 1st until the release of Black Butler - Season One, Part One on January 11th."
"From the visionary directory of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2007 Japanese Academy Award winner, Best Animated Feature) comes the story of an ordinary family going to extraordinary lengths to avert the impending cyber apocalypse!"
"For citizens of the Ken Empire, justice is a myth. Lord Keiro, the deranged Shogun of the Imperial Army, blazes a trail of terror across the countryside in search of the sacred sword that will make him a god. Standing in his way is Taito, an omnipotent star reborn in human form -- a young hero who vows to use his celestial strength to avenge those slaughtered by the villainous Shogun. Taito's mystical powers steer him toward a violent showdown with Keiro, and if used recklessly, his newfound abilities could shred the very fabric of his being. To master the art of control and become a heroic martial artist, Taito must seek the guidance of others like him: the seven star-born warriors with the strength to shatter a corrupt empire."
"From the darkest realms of another dimension emerges the story of Laharl, the son of a demon overlord, and his two sidekicks: his impish servant and an angelic assassin. Awoken from a two-year, poison-induced nap, Laharl learns of his father's demise and blazes a trail of destruction on his quest to declare rule over the Netherworld. Never skimping on the wisecracks, the diabolical prince and his accomplices battle dragons, sorceresses, robots, power-hungry humans, and corrupt angels. "
"There's a claw-fisted, fiancée-murdering, older-brother-corrupting, genocidal maniac terrorizing the planet of Endless Illusion, and only Van, a tight-lipped loner in a jet-black tuxedo, can bring the scoundrel to justice. Armed with his shape-shifting sword, a mechanized suit of armor sent from the heavens, and a fierce hunger for condiments, Van doggedly hunts the villain who murdered his one true love. Riding shotgun on his quest is Wendy, a pretty, young spitfire who'll do anything to reunite with her long lost brother. Together, they seek vengeance in a lawless, futuristic frontier, draining bottles of ketchup and righting wrongs wherever heroes are needed. With any luck, they'll find the men they seek before the sun sets on civilization once and for all."
