More anime is coming to Xbox Live starting on June 12th when FUNimation, Geneon and ADV Films begin selling their shows on the Xbox 360. Anime that will air on the Xbox Live Video Marketplace are:
Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
Lupin the 3rd
Akira (the movie in HD)
Microsoft has not announced a price per episode, but typically TV show episodes are sold for 160 Microsoft Points ($2). Not a bad deal if you want to pick up select episodes of Lupin or grab a short 13 episode series like Gankutsuou. Other networks that debut on the Xbox Live Video Marketplace this month are Country Music Television with Prankville starting tomorrow and Logo on June 11th.
Later this month Dreamgirls, Letters from Iwo Jima, Shooter, Black Snake Moan and Pan’s Labyrinth (see this!) will also appear on the Xbox Live Video Marketplace for rent.
