Amatsuki Virtual-World History Anime's Promo Streamed

High school boy trapped in virtual recreation of ancient Edo-era Japan




The official Japanese website for the Amatsuki television anime series is streaming a one-minute, 35-second promotional movie. The story follow a boy named Tokidoki Rikugō as he gets trapped in an advanced museum's fully immersive, virtual recreation of ancient Edo-era Japan. The recreation happens to include supernatural creatures and magic.

This anime adaptation of Shinobu Takayama's manga was announced in October, and the series will premiere on April 4. Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Rurouni Kenshin, Le Chevalier D'Eon, Getbackers) is directing the Studio DEEN project and co-writing the scripts with Chieko Suzuki. Shinobu Tagashira (Shonen Onmyouji, Hunter X Hunter) is designing the characters. Voice actor Jun Fukuyama (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion's Lelouch, XXXHOLiC's Kimihiro) plays Tokidoki, and Koji Yusa (Ergo Proxy's Vincent) plays Kon, another boy trapped in virtual world.

Someday's Dreamers Adapted into New Anime This Summer



The May issue (on sale on March 26) of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shonen Ace has announced that the Mahō Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto (Someday's Dreamers) storyline will get a new television anime this summer to go alongside the new Natsu no Sora (Summer's Sora) manga series and live-action film. The original Someday's Dreamers manga writer and artist, Norie Yamada and Kumichi Yoshizuki, launched the new manga in the April issue (released on February 26). The live-action film was announced last October. Unlike the previous Someday's Dreamers projects, all three of the new projects focus on a character named Sora, a budding mage learning to use her powers in Tokyo. Osamu Kobayashi (Kimagure Orange Road, BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Paradise Kiss) will direct the animators at Hal Film Maker on the new anime.

Tokyopop released the original Someday's Dreamers manga in North America, and Geneon Entertainment released the original anime series.

U.S. iTunes Store Adds 4 Manga Entertainment Titles

The media company Starz has begun offering television episodes on Apple's iTunes Store in the United States, including four series from Starz' anime unit Manga Entertainment. Those four series are Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (Season 1), Tokko, Noein, and Tactics. Apple iTunes Store video purchases are 640 by 480 in resolution and play only on personal computers (with Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows), video-capable iPod players, and the AppleTV media player.

Manga Entertainment offers these same titles and other series (as well as movies) on Amazon's Unbox, IGN's Direct2Drive, and Microsoft's Xbox Live services. Manga Entertainment is planning to expand its offerings on iTunes beyond the initial four series. Manga Entertainment told ANN that it is also looking at a number of ways to deliver high-definition content, "ranging from Blu-ray Disc to other forms of delivery." It is also in discussions with digital distributors in the United Kingdom and expects "to announce some deals certainly by the end of the year."
