Anime Round-Up: 'Tekken 3D,' 'Blade' Anime and Buy Kaneda's Laser Gun from 'Akira'

Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D

Not to be confused with the 1990 or 2010 live-action adaptations, Tekken: Blood Vengeance will hit 375 U.S. theaters in 3D on July 26 at 7:30 p.m. local time for a one-night screening. Tickets are available here. Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Eureka Seven) wrote the script with Shinji Higuchi (Evangelion) handling storyboards and Youichi Mori (Appleseed) directing. The plot is set in the interval between Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 video games and is described as a "suspense action film." Check out the NCM trailer below.
 

 
Japanese Trailer for 'Blade' Anime Premieres
Marvel announced at last year's Comic-Con that they would be developing anime version of some the company's most popular characters. Though no US release date was announced, Japan is prepared to debut a Blade series on July 1st and has launched an official site which includes the Japanese-language trailer, which we've posted below. Also, check out the character designs for Blade, Deacon Frost and the newly-introduced Makoto and Noah Van Helsing with his dog, Razor.  

 
Buy Kaneda's Laser Gun
California-based prop maker Eddie Paul Industries is currently advertising a life-size replica of Kaneda's laser gun from Akira. The company is offering the non-firing replica gun for $1,000 via Craigslist. Last month, the company offered a replica of the motorcycle from Akira, which was used in Kanye West's music video Stronger. That video featured scenes inspired by the film. The gun currently on sale did not appear in the music video, and as of press time, the gun is still available for die-hard Akira fans or those who are getting ready for World War III.
