Review: Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms
Posted by News Fetcher on July 20 '18 at 02:12 PM
By Christian Chiok from Japanator:
At many points of your life, the concept of immortality has been brought up, whether it’s an author’s interoperation in media or perhaps in a conversation. Mari Okada, who is responsible for the composition highly praised series such as Anohana and Kiznaiver makes her directorial debut with Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms otherwise known as Sayoasa in Japan. Maquia presents the idea of immortality by playing with the idea of outliving your love ones by many years, even hundreds of years, leading to loneliness. The protagonist, Maquia, is from a clan where all the members stop aging in their mid-teens. Other themes include motherhood and racial identity, as that’s two struggles she faces throughout the entirety of the movie.

Releases of the Week: Hang out in Ikebukuro with more Durarara!!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 18 '18 at 04:53 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
When the Durarara!! anime premiered in 2010, I liked how it presented us with a dangerous place filled with down-to-earth individuals. Even if some of them were involved in some extreme actions, the show convinced us that some of them will look after those they trust.

So what does this have to do with releases? Well, the original light novel's tenth book came out, and my gut feeling tells me that it covers more stuff that might've not appeared in the anime. Since Erika and Walker (a.k.a. the series' best duo) are featured with their buddies on the cover, this installment deserves extra props.

As I started thinking about Inio Asano, Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction's second volume enters the scene. Japanator Writer Christian Chiok enjoyed it when it first launched so we can expect it to be impressive.

When you combine the release with Kakegurui bringing the crazy faces to the gambling scene, I think we hit another good week for July.

Delta H Con 2018 Cosplay Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on July 15 '18 at 10:12 PM
By Red Veron from Japanator:
It's summer once again with the con season blazing in regards to the heat, especially in the southern part of the US but the cosplayers are looking cool over at this year's Delta H Con in Houston, Texas. I'm back once again to check out some cosplay at the growing anime and gaming convention in one of the major cities in the country and I must say it's getting bigger along with some impressive cosplay on display. It was quite a bit difficult to get a lot of pictures and video (incoming in a couple of days) with the sheer amount of people spread out all over the moderately sized venue.

The three-day anime and gaming event featured cosplay of all sorts of anime-related fun and more. Other fun stuff at Delta H featured cool stuff such as guests, panels, and other events which I will feature in an upcoming video that I will cobbling together for y'all's viewing pleasure soon.

Check out some of the cosplay in the gallery!

Dragon Ball Super Movie 'Broly' Coming Out in January 2019 in North America
Posted by News Fetcher on July 13 '18 at 04:50 AM
By Christian Chiok from Japanator:
The latest Dragon Ball Super movie has been a hot topic as of late as the movie title as well as the first promotional poster was revealed. Dragon Ball Super Broly, which is the first Dragon Ball Super movie and the twentieth Dragon Ball movie will bring back the popular movie character Broly, as the title of the movie suggests. While Broly is a very popular character, he's also a very disliked character by many as well, so the direction of the movie was questioned. However, thankfully Akira Toriyama confirmed that the character will be rebooted for this movie, bringing back hope to the Broly nay-sayers while still pleasing Broly's fans.

Releases of the Week: You can't stop Garo's Divine Flame
Posted by News Fetcher on July 11 '18 at 06:12 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
It's hasn't been a month since the last live-action Garo release came out, and things are looking good for the Golden Knight. This time, we're seeing Garo the Movie: Divine Flame hitting home video in North America. The anime film is a sequel to Garo: The Animation, which I need to finish. From what I saw, it left me with a good impression.

As Planet With presents us with Satoshi Mizukami (Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer's Creator), the fourth volume of his manga called Spirit Circle arrives to satisfy people's desire for his storytelling style. According to a friend of mine who loves his works, it continues to show off the guy's great method of setting up his characters and world.

Speaking of stuff I adore, Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash's seventh volume launched. Honestly, I'm surprised the light novel went physical since J-Novel has the digital rights to it. My guess is that it has to do with how these deals are divided into different categories. Since I only watched the anime, I wonder if they revealed the mystery behind the setting they're in.

Considering that three things caught my interest, the second week of July managed to present us with some fine stuff.

The new Ultraman's YouTube stream now has English subtitles
Posted by News Fetcher on July 11 '18 at 07:33 AM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
One surprise that caught me off guard is the current Ultraman show, Ultraman R/B, not appearing on Crunchyroll. The reason why this is strange is that the service simulcasted 2015's Ultraman X, 2016's Ultraman Orb, and 2017's Ultraman Geed. With the new installment appearing on Netflix Japan, we may have to give up on seeing it in the usual spot.

Fortunately, the company behind the franchise, Tsuburaya, tends to feature the latest titles on their YouTube channel for a limited time. As a means for those outside of Japan to understand it, a couple people added English captions to R/B's first episode. In other words, it's a fansub placed on an official simulcast, and it lets you support the product. I guess it's similar to the treatment done to Virtual Idol Kizuna Ai's content. On top of that, two other groups added Spanish and Korean subtitles, which provides the viewers more options.

Interestingly, it's the first show to have two Ultra Warrior Siblings join forces from the start. Even though their power recycles aspects from Orb and Geed, I like how they had their forms based on elements, instead of sharing traits with the predecessors. So far, it was fun and I enjoyed seeing them act goofy while they were adapting to their abilities. If you're new to it, the franchise can be summed up to giant guys in suits using wrestling moves against large monsters.

J-Novel nabs Orphen, Amagi Brilliant Park, and a couple interesting goodies
Posted by News Fetcher on July 07 '18 at 07:33 AM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
Anime Expo started on Thursday, and J-Novel unleashed a new arsenal of titles on their Website. Coincidentally, one of them answered my prayers as the original Sorcerous Stabber Orphen light novel launches in English. Honestly, I'm not too familiar with it, but the art featured in the anime and PS2 game gave me a good vibe.

Since it revolves around a magic school dropout trying to save his friend who accidentally became a dragon, it sounds right up my alley. That, and it looks like it's another fun fantasy story from the '90s.

As for the other stuff, Amagi Brilliant Park enters the scene, which is great for those who enjoy Shouji Gouto's (Full Metal Panic!'s Author) works. Since it received an anime by Kyoto Animation in the past, it could act as an excuse to go through the events that occur after the adaptation.

Releases of the Week: Gundam 00 brings back the armed interventions
Posted by News Fetcher on July 05 '18 at 02:12 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
The 4th of July came and went as fireworks covered the sky all over the United States. Speaking of independence, this week represents the return of Gundam 00, so you can rewatch the Celestial Being pilots' attempt to unite the world. All in all, this shows that Rightstuf and Sunrise's partnership to bring the franchise's older shows to North America continues to go well.

If you've been itching to do a fabulous pose, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders drops by to bring the "ORA ORA ORA" and "MUDA MUDA MUDA" towards your direction. You'll get greeted with a "WRY" as well.

The manga side brought us some good shonen stuff as One Punch Man and The Seven Deadly Sins hit us with their latest volumes. As I go through my recurring dilemma of coming across things I've been meaning to check out, My Hero Academia Vigilantes drops by to give us another side of the main series' world.

July's first batch may not have surpassed the last one from June, but it seems promising for the next set of future releases.

Boomslank's new shirt will make you want to pilot a badass robot
Posted by News Fetcher on July 01 '18 at 06:12 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
So I was thinking about how there need to be more shirts of original giant robots and a glorious miracle happened. It turns out that Boomslank released a new mecha shirt called "Megalith," which gives us the feeling of seeing a unit launch into the sky.

Interestingly, P-Shinobi's inspiration for the shirt was the song "Megalith Anus Dei" from Ace Combat 4. While the game deals with jets, the piece shows that its more about the feeling you get from the tune than the title's content. Since his intentions if for the person to feel overwhelmed, a giant robot worked well on this topic. The idea of watching it fly by captures this moment well. Who knows, this shirt might make you three times faster if you wear it.

Ever since Former Japanator Editor-in-Chief Tim Sheehy hired them to design the lovely Ai-Fi, I started to admire more of their original designs. It's always a treat to see what sort of merchandise they come up with for their art.

Releases of the Week: Garo gives mankind hope
Posted by News Fetcher on June 27 '18 at 03:32 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
I don't know about you, but the final week of June hit us with a ton of new things from glorious Nippon. One of the releases I'd like to focus on is the North American debut of Garo Special: Beast of the Demon Night, which is a direct continuation of the original late-night tokusatsu series.

Honestly, this release is dear to me since it continues to create a glorious moment that fans of the genre never saw coming. Hopefully, it'll continue to meet Kraken Releasing's expectations. That way, we could see all of the live-action installments in the West.

Aside from the Wolf-themed Knights, the classics are going strong again as a manga of the grandaddy of combining robots enters the scene. While it's not the original Getter Robo, having the series by the Linebarrels of Iron duo is a nice thing. Of course, I'm talking about the original since I heard the anime adaptation wasn't that great.

Another great treat is True Tenchi Muyo! coming out, which is perfect for those who want to learn more about the original universe's lore. Who knows, it may help the third Tenchi OVA feel less confusing. For the Go Nagai lovers, a new volume of Devilman Grimoire hits the scene.

With the list of new stuff being huge, I think they manage to cover every audience in this batch. Considering that we have some fantasy, magical girls, and drama in the mix, the month of June is off to an amazing end. I wonder if July can surpass it. For now, we'll just have to keep an eye on the schedule.

The next Konosuba anime brings Megumin's explosions to the big screen
Posted by News Fetcher on June 27 '18 at 07:33 AM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
One of the biggest surprises of 2017 and 2016 was Konosuba's two seasons. Other than being among the shows that led to Studio Deen bringing us a series of solid hits, it was fun seeing Kazuma and his party of dimwits' attempts to survive in a fantasy world. I guess there's a plot about defeating a demon lord, but the priority seems to be in the antics.

As we went a full year without hearing any news of a sequel, the anime getting its own movie. Whether it'll be a sequel or self-contained story will depend on future updates. For now, we know that J.C. Staff (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and Slayers' Animation Production) is handling the animation, and the key staff members are returning. In other words, we're getting a nicer version of the title with the main people we know and love.

Considering this is one of my favorites of the year, I can't wait to have a great laugh again. Obviously, it'll be neat to see the best girl in Japanese theaters. I guess I can pray for a future North American screening event. Then again, relying on Aqua will result in a disappointing outcome.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's anime makes a golden comeback this October
Posted by News Fetcher on June 22 '18 at 02:12 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
Well, people. It seems like 2018 is going to be a great year to be a fan of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Part of it has to do with the manga's fifth arc getting an anime adaptation in the form of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind.

The thing that sets it apart from other long series is that each saga is set in a different time period, along with focusing on a different cast of characters. While they're all connected, each story gives off a different feeling, which is one of JoJo's strong points. That, and it features ridiculous poses, along with the heroes finding clever ways to use their abilities to stop their foes.

Golden Wind focuses on Giorno Giovanna and his goal to become a gangster boss. From what my friends told, he's trying to be the Robin Hood of mob bosses. It also covers Hirohiko Araki's transition from a Fist of the North Star-inspired style to one that's influenced by fashion. If anything, the original creator's art evolution is an interesting one.

Even though the anime premieres in October, people will get the chance to watch the first episode at Anime Expo '18 on July 7. If you live in Japan, then you can catch it on July 5.

With the staff having some people from the previous JoJo installments, I'm curious to see how it'll stand out from the others since each arc featured a different animation style. Hopefully, it does well during its run since it'll increase the chances of the other arcs to receive anime adaptations. Also, I look forward to jamming out to the Western song they pick for the ending. Since we received "Roundabout" by Yes, "Walk like an Egyptian" by The Bangles, "Last Train Home" by Pat Methany Group, and "I Want You" by Savage Garden, I have a feeling they'll pick another catchy tune.

J-Novel's latest acquisition focuses on managing dungeons
Posted by News Fetcher on June 21 '18 at 07:32 AM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
It looks like J-Novel brought us a story that sheds light on the ways of keeping a dungeon in check. With the lead known as a Keima being a slacker, Lazy Dungeon Master may throw some challenges to help him be more productive.

Other than managing the place, he has to protect the Dungeon Core, which happens to be a cute girl called Rokuko. If she dies, then the guy will perish as well.

Just like their previous releases, Vol. 1's first chapter can be read on J-Novel Club for free. This format helps people decide if it's worth paying for the content available on the Website, which costs $4.50 a month. So far, the laziness angle shows that it has some potential.

Releases of the Week: Start your life in another world with Re:ZERO
Posted by News Fetcher on June 20 '18 at 07:33 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
It's time to welcome a big release as Re:ZERO: Starting Life in Another World came out in North America on home video. Since it was one of my favorite shows of 2016, this news made my day.

One of the things I enjoyed about it was how the main character, Subaru, was an otaku who learned how to deal with reality when he would get hit with a bad situation. No matter how bad things got, you couldn't help but to root for him to find the way to save the ones he adores. It's worth noting that he's voiced by Sean Chiplock in the dub, which is a great opportunity for the guy who voiced Rean in Trails of Cold Steel and Revali in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Before I accidentally turn this into a Re:Zero appreciation post, another volume of Golden Kamuy came out. I'm not too familiar with it, but I remember hearing good things about it from Japanator Contributor Christian Chiok. We also have another Dragon Ball Super set in the mix, which covers the "Future Trunks Saga."

For a small release week, I'm impressed with the amount of good stuff that launched.

The Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer Creator's new anime looks bonkers
Posted by News Fetcher on June 19 '18 at 07:34 AM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
At this point, we may have to give up on the idea of there being an anime adaptation of Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer by Gainax with music by The Pillows. The reason for this combo is that the manga referenced a ton of the studios' works, along with giving off a similar vibe to their style. I guess the closest possibility would be one by Studio Trigger, which sounds like a better dream.

On the bright side, a new trailer for Planet With surfaced, which is adapted from Satoshi Mizukami's (Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer’s Creator) storyboards. So far, its hook is that the main cast is fighting the heroes who protected the area from beings called Nebula Weapons. That said, I'm interested in learning the reason behind this fight.

Aside from the premise, it's cool how the show's giant robot resembles a Kamen Rider, along with featuring a group of characters with superpowers. At the moment, it makes me think of Giant Robo: The Animation - The Day the Earth Stood Still since it contained this aspect.

Releases of the Week: Harlock is an amazing role model
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '18 at 07:20 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
Is it me, or is summer turning into the season of classics releases? I think the answer might be "yes" since we have one of Leiji Matsumoto's (Space Battleship Yamato's Creator, Interstella 5555's Character Design) best characters appearing in manga form this week.

I may not have seen or read his story, but I enjoyed the episode of Megas XLR that made fun of him. Other than that, his outfit looks great and I heard nothing but good things about the captain from people I know. But yeah, it's great that more readers will get to witness his accomplishments in space.

With E3 going on, Splatoon's third volume coming out is a great timing. Japanator Contributor Christian Chiok found it to be decent, so it could be a great compliment to the Octo Expansion for the second game.

Back to the topic of older stuff, Initial D Legend 3 drifts by North America's streets so we can turn up the Eurobeat to maximum volume. Anyway, let's continue to enjoy this classic titles trend.

Go Nagai is attending Anime Expo '18
Posted by News Fetcher on June 10 '18 at 08:33 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
As I rejoice over 2018 marking the return of three classic Go Nagai titles, the people at Anime Expo bring joy to my life as they grant him the Guest of Honor status for the event. If anything, this is the perfect follow-up to the new Devilman, Mazinger, and Cutie Honey projects going West.

Even though my exposure to his works is through the original Devilman manga, I got to watch the remakes of his iconic stuff, such as Yasuhiro Imagawa's (Giant Robo and G-Gundam's Director) Mazinger Edition Z: The Impact and Gainax's Re: Cutie Honey. All in all, the ones I saw did justice to the man who brought us the glorious Rocket Punch and the first magical girl transformation.

He'll be hosting a Cutie Honey Universe panel on July 7, along with appearing at an autograph session. At the moment, the latter's date has yet to be revealed. Either way, this should be enough for those who want to meet someone who's good at creating entertaining pieces with robots, demons, sex, violence, comedy, and a mix of all the above.

This year's Anime Expo runs from July 5 to 8, which means that we only have a couple weeks before he appears at the con. Once again, this whole thing sounds like another great way to celebrate his 50th Anniversary as a creator.

Releases of the Week: Kanna steals the spotlight
Posted by News Fetcher on June 06 '18 at 01:43 PM
By Salvador G Rodiles from Japanator:
Oh, boy. It seems like we hit another occasion where the anime titles are slowing down as the manga stuff dominates North America. At least there's a decent amount in the wild. Most importantly, this marks the second release of the Dragon Maid spin-off story, Kanna's Daily Life.

I may not have gotten the chance to read it, but the name implies that we'll get to see her chomp on various things you normally don't eat, along with making a certain classmate feel nervous. Considering that the whole cast in the main tale is great, she could amuse people on her own.

We also have My Hero Academia Season 2 coming out, along with another issue of its source material. Once again, I'm being reminded that I need to hop on this one as well since Japanator Editor-in-Chief Josh Tolentino loved the heck out of it. In all seriousness, the real star is Descending Stories: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju Vol. 7 being available in English. This is due to the anime being one of our favorites, which was one of the instances where Studio DEEN surprised us.

On that note, is anyone planning to pick up any of the new things that came out?
