Viz Media has a big announcement for Inuyasha fans, the company has launched three of movies on iTunes download-to-own (DTO) for $4.99 each through August 3rd.

For those hoping to score a longer dose of Inuyasha for free, Hulu and Viz have partnered to bring the movie Affections Touching Across Time to web viewers for free until August 11th.
While collecting a series as large as Inuyasha has always been a pain on the wallet, it seems that today things change just a bit with the release of the entire series on iTunes. Hopefully other stores like Amazon and even the Zune marketplace will be able to secure something as well to give some freedom to the consumers.

With a week left until the start of Comic-Con 2010 there’s a flurry of information coming out to detail the latest additions to the show. Today we get wind that MINUTEMAN has joined the 2010 Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival. The war thriller will make its debut on Friday July 23rd at 1:20PM for all to see with no word about a repeated screening.
Some words on MINUTEMAN for the masses:
The film revolves around Captain Lance Deakin who, after returning to civilian life as a Texas rancher, is haunted by flashbacks of MINUTEMAN, a hyper violent video game he was playing while on tour in Iraq. Exhibiting strange powers in real life, Lance is pulled deeper and deeper into the vortex of his memory, slowly realizing that the military turned him and his men into brainwashed super-soldiers to perform top secret missions. While Lance is desperately trying to piece together what happened to him, Lance’s former comrades are closing in on him and Becca, his fiance, to take them out. Lance is quickly running out of time to uncover the truth and save the woman he loves.
MINUTEMAN, the Video Game has been designed by Southern Methodist University’s Guild Hall graduate students and Longhorn Skull Productions, LLC. It is an interactive war game that shows the film’s Minuteman characters in combat action. Cutting between the video game and the movie enhances the mystery, power and adrenaline rush of the film.
