    Funimation Acquires Home Video Rights for LeSean Thomas’ Cannon Busters

    We’re so excited to announce that the mecha sci-fi adventure Cannon Busters, from the incredible LeSean Thomas, is coming to Blu-ray from Funimation!

    The anime series, which was the product of an international collaboration between Thomas and Japanese studios Satelight (Aquarion EVOL) and Yumeta Company (Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna), follows the adventures of the friendship droid S.A.M., a maintenance robot who’s a bit off and a deadly criminal on the run.

    The three set out on a journey unlike any other, all in the search for the next rightful ruler of a tattered kingdom! Oh, and that heir is S.A.M.’s best friend. And we’re so excited to bring this truly collaborative anime series to home video!

    In addition to the standard Blu-ray release of Cannon Busters, which includes all 12 episodes of the series subbed and dubbed, there is also a Limited Edition release planned. And yes, it will be PACKED with special goodies. Stay tuned very soon for more info on the home video release.

    Yeah, LeSean Thomas and the rest of these fraudsters can go pound sand.

        I didn't back this or follow it at all. Looks @ https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...pilot/comments and shake my head.

          It gets worse. From what my friend told me looking at the backer-only post recently again (since I didn't/couldn't back when this went on), they were supposed to start issuing monthly updates and also giving backers some of their rewards as well (such as certain physical and digital rewards). Neither ended up happening. The post was made back in June 2018, too...

          I'm not gonna blame LeSean inherently on this (since it's unlikely he controls the whole situation), but whomever is making these decisions on the committee, has a LOT to answer for, I'll say that.

          The worst thing is I "think" a few of the things being included in the LE above, were supposed to be made available for backers (depending on tier), so that's another mess too...

            Yikes...didn't know this show had that going on in the background.

            Situations like this are exactly why I haven't used Kickstarter in a long time. I think the last time was for the Fireball Island board game (which went...fine aside from the quality of the box) and Shovel Knight (which also went fine). I've seen too many other horror stories to even consider backing anything else on there.
