Last of the free Animatrix episodes released! I've been waiting for this for a long time (in fact, ever since it was discussed here). Set to be released on DVD June 3rd, four of the nine animated shorts were made available to download, one released every month since February. The last one, The Second Renaissance Part 2, has finally been released, much to my anticipation [Note: Quicktime required]. This one is directed by Mahiro Maeda, famous his Blue Submarine no. 6 series. Other directors include Shinichiro Watanabe, known for his work on Cowboy Bebop, and Aeon Flux's Peter Chung.
