      • Change #1 - [heading]UPDATE: RIP Manga Entertainment[/heading] <newline> <newline>Isn’t it always the way? You post an article, and suddenly someone tweets something that changes the face of the industry. <newline> <newline>[quote][url=""]Starting next week, Manga UK will begin to merge with Funimation [/url] <newline> <newline>That means more anime, more often, for you! And while the name is changing, we're still the same team bringing you brilliant anime across home video, cinema and now... streaming![/quote] <newline>It’s already been happening behind the scenes, when it comes to e-mail addresses and social media, as well as on the cover of many Funimation titles that have been recently released in the UK, and it was inevitable from the moment that Funimation bought Manga Entertainment. But now it’s finally happening. The Manga Entertainment brand is being retired, and from next week, the company will progress to becoming Funimation, although the logo will remain on certain titles like Dragon Ball Z for continuity. They know how irate fans can get when sleeves don’t match on shelves. <newline> <newline>I can’t help but feel sad, as for me, Manga Entertainment, and before that Manga Video was my introduction to anime. I spent many an hour in HMV and Virgin, trawling the video shelves looking for cyberpunk animation to devour; and given just how prominent that name is, how much of a heritage it has for anime fans in this country, I can’t help but think that Funimation are missing a trick by not keeping it alive, and may even earn a little bad karma by phasing it out. <newline> <newline>[url=""]More info here[/url] <newline> <newline> <newline>[url="http://www.myreviewer.
