It is officially announced that TC Entertainment will release a HD new master edition Blu-ray of Gainax's classic two-episode OVA Otaku no Video in Japan on November 17, 2014. The comedy OVA series was released in 1991 depicting the real otaku life in the early 1980s Japan. Hit the jump for more information.
Despite their ongoing work on the Magica Wars adaptation, anime studio Gainax isn't what it used to be. Just look at their dismantled website, which no longer features their famous weekly welcome or even their General Products web store. In a bit of new output, they (and subcontractor Wanpack) have produced an ad featuring the mascot character of private computer skills school Kyoto Computer Gakuin.
Once weekly, Gainax has scaled back their site's famous welcome page illustrations to a monthly schedule. For April, the work was by Minami Nanpo, one of the newer animators working on their anime shorts adaptation of Magica Wars, a free-to-play game in which each of Japan's 47 prefectures is represented by a magical girl.

On February 1st, anime studio Gainax, known for series such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, opened the “Gainax Theater”, a rental space in Yonago, Tottori Prefecture. YATTAR NEWS brings us pics and info after the jump!
