Funimation licenses Summer Wars, Evangelion: 2.0

According to Animé News Network, Funimation has recently announced that they have licensed Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance and Summer Wars for release here in the States.

Funimation will be releasing the the ​“2.22” version of Evangelion 2.0 — the second in the planned four-film ​“rebuild” of the seminal Neon Genesis Evangelion series — on DVD and Blu-ray, as well as in theatres. As for Summer Wars — Mamoru Hosoda’s critically acclaimed follow-up to The Girl Who Leapt Through Time — Funimation will be doing a theatrical release this year, with DVD and Blu-ray releases coming sometime next year.

These two titles are at the top of the list of animé titles that I’m most looking forward to, so suffice to say, this news makes me a very happy boy.
