It seems that despite what many of us may think, Media Blasters hasn’t been shut down yet. In fact today the company announced some surprising news; they were able to actually purchase a new anime license! The anime they have acquired aired back in 2011 and it happens to be the anime adaptation of the popular female Blackjack character from Super Black Jack, Rio.
Rio – Rainbow Gate! followed the story of the titular Rio who works at a casino and is trying to become the best around by collecting the 13 legendary cards known as “Gates.” No release plans or dubbing details were revealed at the time of announcement, but it is certainly good to see Media Blasters trying to get back on their feet.
