^ I'm curious to NOT see One Piece Movie 10 on that list. At the moment, its supposedly scheduled to air in Spring 2009.


Yes One Piece movies are always shown in the spring, but it hasn't announced yet for 2009. If it's premiered in the spring of 2009, there will be two Touei Animation movies, One Piece and PreCure. Maybe Touei Animation is planning a special campaign for the 10th anniversary of One Piece anime.

2nd movie? I thought the first wasn't release yet.. I guess I am really not interested in the anime, but it is good to hear that a sequel came out though. :)

Not until a long time, I believe summer next year? Then we'll have to wait for the DVD to come out until subbers can get their hands on it.

Anyways, I'm really looking forward to the new Eureka 7 movie, but not so much the TTGL recap movies. :\

I didn't know about the Eureka 7 movie. Although I still skipped a few episodes in the series so I'd rather re-watch that before the movie (whether it's recap or not).

Ugh, I really hope it doesn't take too long. I'm really curious about all those added scenes.

Are these movies recaps ?


Eureka Seven will not be a re-cap movie, thank goodness. And, I think GL won't be recap, either. o:)
