I saw it. It is very... peculiar. But it has really good characters and dialogue. It moves slow, and it's not interested in being funny or explaining everything about its world, but it is so, so satisfying.

Watch it if you're not in the mood for a quick action anime. It takes its time. The ending will have you choking up though.

Fully recommended. I give it an 8/10. For reference, i give Spice and Wolf an 8.5/10.

Someone likened it to ShinSekai Yori which imo is the greatest storytelling anime I have ever seen. Sounds accurate.

Newer manga called "Shiori Experience - Jimi na Watashi to Hen na Oji-san" just started getting translations. About a girl who becomes haunted by the ghost of Jimi Hendrix.

'To All the Corners of the World' Anime Film Reaches Crowdfunding Goal

The crowdfunding campaign for the anime film of Fumiyo Kono's To All The Corners Of The World (Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni) manga reached its goal on Wednesday. The campaign launched in Japan on March 9.

The campaign's goal was to reach 20 million yen (about US$164,873) in funding, and as of press time the campaign had raised 20,354,000 yen (US$167,788) from 1,736 backers.

The crowdfunding campaign offers six tiers of rewards from 2,000 yen (about US$17, with a member's pin badge and a letter from the lead character Suzu) to 1,000,000 yen (about US$8,000 with the badge, the letter, an invitation to one of three production support member meetings in July, and a name listing in the ending credits). The campaign will end on the Makuake website on May 29.

The award-winning story of Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni follows a bride named Suzu Urano as she moves to her new life in Kure City on the coast of Hiroshima Prefecture. Suzu perseveres through World War II with pluck and determination. The tagline on the site for the film's production support members reads:

Family.
Meals.
Sketchbook.

Shōwa Years 19 and 20…
Kure, Hiroshima…
In that place and time was my humble daily life.

Director and writer Sunao Katabuchi (Mai Mai Miracle, Black Lagoon) had announced the feature film in 2012. Early concept art featured designs by Chie Uratani (Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail, Mai Mai Miracle, Tekkonkinkreet animation director), and the staff completed the scenario and storyboards. The studio MAPPA (Kids on the Slope, Terror in Resonance) is animating the film, and GENCO is producing.

JManga had released Kono's manga in English online. The manga series won an Excellence Prize in the 13th Japan Media Arts Festival, and it already inspired a live-action television special starring Keiko Kitagawa (live-action Sailor Moon's Sailor Mars, Paradise Kiss) as Suzu Urano in 2011. Last Gasp Publishing and jaPress released Kono's manga Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms in North America.

One-Punch Man Anime Features Kaito Ishikawa, Makoto Furukawa, Madhouse

posted on 2015-03-20 05:55 EDT
Space Dandy's Shingo Natsume directs with designs by Robotics;Notes' Chikashi Kubota

This year's 17th issue of Sheisha's Young Jump magazine is reporting on Thursday Makoto Furukawa and Kaito Ishikawa will play the protagonist Saitama and Genos, respectively, in the One-Punch Man television anime.

Shingo Natsume (Space Dandy, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) is directing the anime at Mad House (Summer Wars, Hunter x Hunter). Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger and Bunny scripts, Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary) is in charge of the series scripts, and Chikashi Kubota (From the New World, Robotics;Notes) is designing the characters.

Yuusuke Murata's manga series revolves around the titular super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily.

Murata's manga series adapts ONE's original web manga of the same name. Murata's manga is currently running on Shueisha's free Tonari no Young Jump spinoff website. The series passed the 2.2-million mark in November 2013, the 3.4-million mark last May, and the 4.5-million mark in November.

One-Punch Man is currently serialized in Viz Media's English-language digital edition of Weekly Shonen Jump.
