Watch Out For Atlus' Livestream Of Persona 5 The Animation Details On Christmas Eve

Altus, the developer behind Persona 5 is releasing new information about the upcoming Persona 5 The Animation. The announcement will be via a live stream that will begin on December 24 at 8Pm Japan Time. So for those in the United States, the live stream will be 6Am Eastern Time. The stream will be shown on Abema TV for Japan, and YouTube Live for the rest of the world. It might be a bit early, however, if you want to know all the details on Atlus’ new project first, then it might be worth a look.

I wonder how relevant these new plot lines will be and how they’ll affect the game’s plot overall.

Funimation Streamed Entire Sengoku Basara: The Last Party Film with English Dub

North American anime distributor Funimation has streamed the entire Sengoku Basara: The Last Party film with its English dub on Friday, and the stream was, unfortunately, available for this weekend only.

The stream promotes Funimation’s Blu-ray/DVD combo release of the 2011 film on November 6th, 2012 – which is on Tuesday – so you won’t have to wait too long to see it, in case you’ve missed the streaming.

The feature film was announced in 2010 after the final Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings 2 television episode, and it opened in Japan in June of 2011. Sengoku Basara: The Last Party continues the story after the fall of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, as Japan plunges into chaos and subordinate Ishida Mitsunari looks to seek revenge against Date Masamune and features the voices of Sôichiro Hoshi, Kazuya Nakai and Tôru Ôkawa.

Funimation has previously released both Sengoku Basara television series in North America.
