Remember when Microsoft announced its Xbox Live TV
service for the states? Remember when we told you that it was getting a content boost
from, among others, anime specialist ADTV? Remember that it's still not happened?
Well there's some good news... while Microsoft might be leaving us out in the cold, ADTV isn't. Jumping ahead of the launch of Xbox TV over here, the company's launching Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor vol.1 - Days Of Future Past
Guyver is available for download to own and download to rent from Vizumi
Those of you who don't remember Guyver
should cast your minds back to the '80s when you were watching Thundercats
but you had that one cool mate who was into Japanese cartoons that were for, like, grown-ups.
That mate was probably watching Guyver
. It's about a chap called Sho (isn't that the name of Harry Potter's girlfiend?) who finds himself wrapped up in corporate nastiness when he comes across some techno-organic armour called (you guessed it) 'Guyver'. This latest instalment is all-new and (a little bizarrely, perhaps) features music from Hip Hop and Soul label, TBRL Music.
In other videogame-to-anime news, ADV has also recently released Zone of the Enders Complete Collection
(available now on DVD for a piffling £59.99) - a must-get for any true Hideo Kojima completist.
