The second teaser trailer for episode one of Digimon Adventure Tri. 

We get more voice acting samples from the new cast, mostly new footage, and whole lot of hype.

This is coming out real soon, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Toei also released a second, slightly different video with some new shots of the cast. Check that out below.

Look at that, an animated Idolmaster: Million Live! PV!

Now just hurry up and announce a TV anime, and we can all move on with our lives.

… while patiently waiting for Million Live Starlight Stage to be a thing. *Cough

April, 2016. Ace Attorney. Anime.

It’s taken so long that I assumed it would never happen.

Proceed to celebrate.

Mamoru Hosoda has become a force to be reckoned with in the world of Japanese film. Responsible for films like Digimon Adventure: Our War Game and One Piece Movie: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island, mainstream cinema goers didn’t really get to know him until The Girl Who Leapt Through Time debuted. It didn’t take long for critics to cry out that he was the next Hayao Miyazaki, something that seemed to happen every time a new, fresh director emerged from the shadows. As was the case with most of those other directors, assigning Hosoda the label of “next Miyazaki” was ultimately a disservice to both him and the Studio Ghibli powerhouse.

The last two Hosoda films, Summer Wars and The Wolf Children, were both stories about the power of family. The former took a look at the bigger picture of what a family is, while the latter was a more personal story about a single mother’s experience raising two children.

Mamoru Hosoda’s latest, The Boy and the Beast, is yet another tale about family, and in some ways is interesting as a companion piece to The Wolf Children, but it’s also more than just that. It’s a martial arts film. It’s a coming of age story. It’s a tale about coming to terms with the people around you.

It also happens to be a damn fine film.

Scans from last week’s Miracle Girls Festival feature in Famitsu. 

For those of you still unawares, the game is built on the Project Diva engine and game system, so if you’re good at those games, you’ll probably be a pro at this one, featuring music from a handful of popular anime series.

Last week the focus was on Arpeggio, Nyarko-san, and No-Rin.

Anybody looking to pick this up?

An assortment of illustrations from Atsushi Nishigori’s new art book, Telegenic!. 

A little but of Diebuster, some original stuff, a little bit of Gurren Lagann, a dash of Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, and even a bit of This Ugly Yet Beautiful World.

More coming later!

Well look at that!

More Atsushi Nishigori illustrations from his brand new art book, Telegenic!

This time around is a series of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann illustrations and sketches from various magazines, books, CDs, and DVDs. Much more coming later!

There you have it, the first trailer for Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS.

This is gonna be real funny.

This is some totally rad news.

Good Smile Company and Max Factory, two of the leading companies for anime/game character goods, have announced the creation of Orange Rouge. OR is a brand new product line specializing in male character goods (figures etc)targeting that specific demographic.

There have always been figures for women and anyone else interested, but this is probably the first time two big companies have come together specifically for that cause. This is awesome.

Take a look at the site and see if anything in their upcoming lineup strikes your fancy. 

Produced by WHITE FOX with vocals by Suara, here’s the animated opening for Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen.

There’s not much to say here beyond everything looks and sounds good. I never played the original game, but I enjoyed the anime adaptation quite a bit. I’m looking forward to probably playing this one on the Vita (it’s PS4/3/Vita) just because strategy RPGs have always gone better for me when I could carry them around.

Hopefully this gets picked up for localization. I get the impression that fans in the west are pretty starved for these sorts of experiences.
