The February issue of Kodansha's Afternoon magazine is revealing on Saturday that Riichi Ueshiba's Nazo no Kanojo X (Mysterious Girlfriend X) romantic comedy manga will get a television anime adaptation. The announcement also notes that the limited edition of the eighth volume of the manga will bundle a drama CD when it is released on February 23.
The studio Kyoto Animation opened a website for its Hyoka television anime series and revealed the anime's main staff and a piece of key visual art. The studio is adapting Honobu Yonezawa's adolescent mystery novel of the same name.
Shoji Gatoh, the author best known for the Full Metal Panic! light novel series, is in charge of the series scripts. Gatoh was also in charge of the scripts for the various Full Metal Panic! anime, as well as for The Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk and The Tower of Druaga: the Sword of Uruk sequel. He wrote scripts for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star.
Yasuhiro Takemoto is directing the series after having done the same for The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and several Full Metal Panic! projects. Kouhei Tanaka (Gate Keepers, Gunbuster, Sakura Wars) is composing the music. Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine already revealed that Futoshi Nishiya (Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya, My Ordinary Life/Nichijō) is designing the characters in Hyoka.
The story of Hyoka follows a boy named Hōtarō who is not assertive about getting involved, but was ordered by his older sister to join the classic literature club. In the club, he gets close to the truth about an incident, involving a female member's uncle, which happened 33 years ago. The "energy-saving" boy is joined by an inquisitive girl in this adolescent mystery.
Project ended up being some kind of online browser game.
The online game company Strategy & Partners announced on Wednesday that it agreed with Aniplex to develop and run a Puella Magi Madoka Magica Online browser game for personal computers. It aims to begin service on the game next spring.
While the game will be free to play, items will cost money. The player can make friends with magical girls and form a party of six, including the player's own character. As an online title, the game also supports cooperative play between multiple players as they take on Walpurgis Night.
A website had opened last month for what was then a "secret project" connected to the Madoka Magica television anime series. A three-part film project was announced last month.
The official Evangelion website http://www.evangelion.co.jp/ was updated for New Years with new information: The International title for Evangelion Q (to be released in Fall 2012) is You Can (Not) Redo. Evangelion ? was also revealed to be released in 2013.
Doraemon has sure been dumbed down and sold out hard.
BTW, after I see the original 2005 version of Doraemon, I now prefer this, with English subs if available, than my native version where it is censored heavily and refuses to use new theme songs like it is a soup drama.
saw evangelion 2.2 dub first time a few days ago. Holy shit.
End of Evangelion the Asuka fight where she gets her guts ripped out by those vulture evas traumatized me as a kid, this version is even 10 times as f*cked up and disturbing. So so sick
Only question why does Kawaru keep showing up and doing nothing and why the phuck is Mari there, and i don't like how Asuka is so nice and tolerable in this version, but I like how Shinji isn't a giant bitch and shows some steely Kamina-esque resolve at the end.
