posted on 2008-06-30 18:27 EDT

Vampire Hunter D
: American Wasteland to ship in monthly American-style issues

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ICv2
reports
that the American comic book company
Devil's Due Publishing
has agreed with the manga distributor
Digital Manga Publishing
(DMP) to develop an original
comic
series based on
Hideyuki Kikuchi
's
Vampire Hunter D
novels.
Vampire Hunter D: American Wasteland will ship in monthly, American-style issues. The companies have yet to announce the creative staff or the release date
for the new comic series. Kikuchi first
mentioned
the discussions for an
American comic
version in 2006.

DMP has already
imported
the novels, complete with the original illustrations by
Yoshitaka Amano
(Gatchaman,
Final Fantasy games), to North America in English. DMP is also releasing a separate manga version that is illustrated by
Saiko Takaki
, a former
dōjinshi
artist personally
selected
by Kikuchi.
Streamline Pictures
and
Urban Vision
both
released
the 1985 anime video adaptation in North Amercia, while Urban Vision also
released
the 2000 movie version,
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

Kikuchi and Takaki will be
attending
Anime Expo in Los Angeles this week, and Amano will be
attending
Comic-Con International in San Diego, California later this month. Kikuchi, Amano, and New York Anime Festival will be
hosting
Kikiuchi, Amano, and novel translator
Kevin Leahy
in September.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The North American distributor
Funimation
has
announced
that it has licensed the
Heroic Age
television anime series from the Japanese media company

space ever since the ancient Gold Tribe disappeared. A man named Age (
Hiroshi Yazaki
) and princess named Deianeira (
Yui Ishikawa
) are the answers to Gold Tribe's prophecies that bind all the races.

Funimation is
streaming
a trailer of the anime on a new official English website. Fafner producer

Di Gi Charat's Koge Donbo* to Launch New Manga in July
posted on 2008-06-30 06:52 EDT

Naki
Shōjo
no Tame no Pavane
manga
set in Meiji-era music school

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Di Gi Charat manga
creator
Koge Donbo
* will
launch
a new manga called Naki
Shōjo
no Tame no Pavane (Pavane for a Dead Girl) in the September issue (on sale on July 30) of
Mag Garden
's Monthly
Comic Blade
magazine. (Donbo added an "*" mark to her formal pen name this past April.) The story revolves around a boy and 12 girls at a music school at the end of
Japan's Meiji era (or early 20th century).

The manga's title is an apparent wordplay on the Japanese translation for a solo piano piece called Pavane pour une infante défunte (Naki Ōjo no Tame no
Pavane or Pavane for a Dead Princess). France's Maurice Ravel (Bolero) composed this piece in 1899, after being inspired by a processional dance called
pavane as it was performed by Spanish royalty during the
Renaissance.

Stephan 'Eco-Anime' Previewed Online in 10 Languages
posted on 2008-06-30 06:09 EDT

Figure-
animation
to be shown at Junior 8 Summit in Hokkaido, Japan this week

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephan, an animated video designed to present environmental issues to children, will be shown during the Junior 8 Summit 2008 event in Japan this week,
and a selection of scenes has already been
posted
online in 10 languages. The anime provides an allegory for the real world by depicting a robot that — like the rest of his fictional, mechanical brethren
— needs oil like food. YouTube is hosting the video, which is dubbed in the robots' "language," with subtitles in English, German, French, Italian, Russian,
Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, Korean, or
Spanish
. Muku developed the video by animating actual figures; Muku's OLC Rights Entertainment parent also dealt with two other figure-based projects which were
animated in Japan: Rudolph the
Red-Nosed Reindeer
and Santa Claus is Coming to Town from the American producers at Rankin/Bass.

The Junior 8 Summit is a companion event to the G8 summit, the annual meeting of eight of the top world leaders and other officials. The Junior 8 Summit
assembles children from around the world for their own meeting before the G8 summit begins.
