The forgotten Gonzo (Full Metal Panic, Hellsing, Vandread, Gatekeepers) anime which is about to be released in America by TokyoPop.

Real Bout High School (Samurai Girl)

Here's information from www.animeondvd.com about the specs for the dvd release and the front cover for RBHS.

http://www.animeondvd.com/specials/previews/rbhs2.htm

and heres some pics of the show

http://www.animeondvd.com/specials/previews/rbhs1.htm

Here's TokyoPop's bio on it

From Studio Gonzo comes a 13 episode series based on the manga by Reiji Saiga and Sora Inoue.

Meet Ryoko Mitsurugi, high-school girl and the champion of K fights, a school recognized system of dueling to resolve disputes. When Ryoko comes across a mysterious pendant, shes called upon to champion more than just school conflicts she must defend an entire world!


The show features character designs by Keiji Gotoh of Nadesico and Gatekeepers fame (And his new anime he's directing later this year and produced by Gonzo is Kiddy Grade) and has the dub talents of David Lucas and Wendel Lee

Gonzo are fast becoming the anime studio with titles like Full Metal Panic, Hellsing, Vandread Second Stage and Real Bout High School coming to America and Titles like Blue Submarine #6, Gatekeepers and Vandread you can say their going to make a splash.

The menus by nightjar are supposed to be some of the best ever made, lookslike a fighting game or something i really hope this comes out in Australia.

Gonzo is really getting recognition just like what Toei Animation Corp, CLAMP, Fuji Creative Corp., Studio Ghibli and other famous animation studios in Japan have throughout the years

BTW, the first volume of the manga is now out in English. I liked it. I've heard it described as a shonen version of Utena, which sounds pretty accurate so far.

Oh, and the manga is set before the anime, apparently.

I'm guessing that the anime will be self-contained enough that you can watch it without reading the manga, but I'll encourage you to get it anyway (especially if you can't wait for the anime to be released).

This series is going to be Awesome. That is given for it is produced by Gonzo, King of fluid and lifelike computer animation.

However

Dosen't it make you wonder what a director has been smoking whenever you see a show that is obsessed with the sight of a bouncy female lead's underpants every minute or so?
