12 Moments of Anime Day 10 – That's a Ramiel We Can Believe In

Yesterday, I said that the Wilhelmina vs. Sabrac fight was probably the best I saw all year.  However, there is one which would definitely give it a run for it’s money, and that is NERV’s battle against the angel Ramiel in the first reboot movie Evangelion 1.0: You are (not) Alone.

That's one sweet angel

They made sure to spare no expense on the special effects in the movie, especially on the climatic battle with Ramiel, where the creativity of Evangelion really shines through when they present us with the ultra-powerful and morphtastic angel.  This super battle between heavyweights earns Ramiel a spot in the list of 12 Moments of Anime

The 12 Moments of Anime project is the brainchild of CCY.

Funimation’s New Show A-Go-Go Day 2: Gad Guard

Another day and yet another 2003 anime series previously licensed by Geneon and picked up by Funimation – this time Gad Guard.  This show appears to have been clued at by the clue which most people couldn’t figure out (it talked about bugs and a veggie guardian, etc.) though some people guessed it right.

This definitely leads credence to the idea that Funimation is going to end up picking up most of GONZO’s titles previously held by Geneon, with the others that the clues suggested being Last Exile, Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, and Vandread.  If that’s correct, at least 5 of Funimation’s 10 announcements will be license switches from Geneon to Funimation.

Count thus far:

Geneon Rescues: 2
Actual New Shows: 0
