Blue Dragon anime heads west

Manga fans unite! San Francisco cartoon op acquires Western rights for Mistwalker anime series

If you're a bizarre anime-type, you'll be delighted to hear that San Francisco-based manga op Viz Media has acquired the rights to bring the Blue Dragon anime to North America and Europe.

The license includes television, home video and non-videogame rights to the series that's just begun airing in The Land of The Rising Sun, and follows the story of young Shu who protects his land with the aid of his big navy mate.
