Vertical Looks for Fan Support for "From the New World" Novel License


Earlier this week Crunchyroll News posted section about this, but i thought i'd add it to my news section also to try and get more people to speak up and get themselves heard.


In a Tumblr post, rep Ed Chavez answers:

I am currently in the process of reading it and our Editor-in-Chief who is our novels guru has enjoyed the book. But length of that book, it is three thick thick volumes, makes it a little scary for us as we tend to avoid serialized novel releases (we prefer one-shots).

Please purchase Crimson Labyrinth (Mr Kishi’s other novel) or repost/like this post to let him know there is an audience for the title. Ideally we’d need 4.5K to make this work. Oh and one more thing. US, UK and Canada only. We don’t sell novels to the EU.


So if all goes well (and enough people repost) we'll be able to get the novel released for the western audience. I don't know about the rest of you but i'm hoping this gets a release. Would love to read this and add it to my collection.

Lupin III's Zenigata Voice Actor Goro Naya Passes Away


Goro Naya, the original voice actor for Inspector Zenigata in the long-running Lupin III anime franchise, passed away on March 5 at 3:00 a.m. due to chronic respiratory failure. He was 83. He leaves behind his wife, voice actress Kachiko Hino.
Naya played Zenigata as recently as last year, when the veteran cast reunited for the "Lupin Ikka Seizoroi" (Lupin Family Lineup) short. The Lupin III: Chi no Kokuin Eien no Mermaid television special and the Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine television series introduced Kouichi Yamadera as the second-generation voice of Zenigata.

For many out there, Goro Naya was Zenigata (and always will be) i'm not sure what else to put, as i probably won't convay it very well. So i'll leave off with this, Thank you for the memories.

A Town where you live Manga getting TV Anime by Gonzo


A television anime adaptation of Kouji Seo's A town where you live (Kimi no Iru Machi) manga has been green-lit. Shigeyasu Yamauchi (Hana Yori Dango, Casshern Sins) is directing the adaptation at Gonzo, and Reiko Yoshida is in charge of the scripts. Terumi Nishii is designing the characters, while Keiichi Oku is composing the music.
Seo launched the ongoing manga in 2008 after concluding the Suzuka sports/romance manga in 2007.
Tatsunoko produced a two-episode OAD adaptation of the manga last year.

For those unfamiliar with the story, the plot is as follows:

Eba Yuzuki, a girl from Tokyo moves to a countryside to attend high school. She lives together with a guy named Kirishima Haruto whose father is an apprentice of Eba's father. Haruto never agrees to let Yuzuki stay at his house and always rejects her. Another girl, Kanzaki Nanami, comes whom Haruto might be in love with. So... what will happen in this story?

So what does everyone else think of this news? I for one am quite optimistic about this as i am enjoying the manga (though recent chapters have dipped in quality) So it'll definately be on my list of things to watch when it comes out.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai Movie Details


The official website for the anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day anime announced that the upcoming film will open on August 31.
The website also posted the second piece of key visual art (pictured above).
The original Spring 2011 television anime followed several childhood friends who try to reconnect in high school after drifting apart due to tragedy. Synopsis follows:

Five childhood friends grow apart after the death of Meiko Honma, close playmate of them all. Jinta Yadomi, leader of the group when they were kids, neglects high school and lives as a shut-in when he unexpectedly starts seeing the ghost of Meiko, who can only interact with him and no one else. She has returned to ask Jinta to fulfill the forgotten wish she made as a kid.

The film will retell the anohana story from the character Menma's point of view. Tatsuyuki Nagai is returning to direct the film at A-1 Pictures.

Not sure about the rest of you but i'm really looking forward to this regardless of the fact that it's just a re-telling (i usually stay far away from condensed series to movie adaptations) but since the series left such a big impression i'll definately be checking this out.

Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! 'Contract Renewed'


After the final episode of “Tamako Market”, a short teaser video of drama, romance anime series, Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! (Click to view) that simply stated “Contract renewed” aired.

The video didn’t mention if this is meant to be an OVA, movie or even a second season. Furthermore, the official website of the series also posted a key visual stating the same words (pictured above). The show's official Twitter account has also asked fans to wait for more information in a follow-up report.

Personally i don't see this being the second season (after the way season 1 ended, nicely wrapping everything up) but it'll still be interesting to see where this goes or if they CAN continue the story past the first season. So i'll be looking forward to the future announcement regarding Rikka and Yūta.

Hayao Miyazaki's Kaze Tachinu Film Has a Release Date


The official website for Hayao Miyazaki's new film "Kaze Tachinu" (The Wind Is Rising) confirmed that the film will open in Japan on July 20. Last month, Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki had written, "I can't say this out loud, but the release date is July 20," on a theatrical poster. This will be the first film from Miyazaki since Ponyo about five years ago.

In February 2009, Miyazaki launched a two-part manga mini-series called "Kaze Tachinu" that focuses on Jirō Horikoshi, the designer of Japan's famed Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter plane of World War II. Author Tatsuo Hori also wrote a novel called Kaze Tachinu, and the film's tagline on the poster references both real-life figures and paraphrases Hori's book: "Show respect for Jiro Horikoshi and Tatsuo Hori. We must try to live." (Hori himself was reportedly quoting Paul Valéry's "Le cimetière marin" or "The Graveyard By The Sea" poem, which read, "Le vent se lève! . . . il faut tenter de vivre!" or "The Wind Is Rising! . . . We must try to live!")

New Lupin III vs. Detective Conan


Lupin III vs. Detective Conan The Movie film will open in Japan in December 2013, more than four years after Lupin III vs. Detective Conan television special aired on NTV in 2009. More details about the upcoming film will be revealed in future issues of Shonen Sunday.
Here is the synopsis for the last Lupin III vs. Detective Conan:

In a country called Vesparand, a new mineral with super stealth properties has been discovered which attracts Lupin's attention. At the same time the untimely deaths of Queen Sakura and her son, Prince Gill leave Princess Mira next in succession to the throne. During a trip to Japan, Princess Mira finds her double in Ran and takes the opportunity to trade places, which ends with Ran being spirited away to Vesparand with Conan, Zenigata, Kogo Mouri, Lupin and Fujiko in tow. There they meet a waiting Jigen and solve the mystery of the deaths of the Queen and Prince.
I'm looking forward to this as i'm a huge Lupin fan so i'll be intrigued to find out wether or not this will continue the story (or at least have a reference to the ending) from the last one or if it'll be a stand alone film.

The manga's 11th volume previously revealed that the series' 12th volume would be its last. It will bundle an original anime DVD when it ships this summer.
Synopsis as follows

Bookworm Shizuku Mizutani has few interests besides her grade and future career. Requested by her teacher, Mizutani brought handouts to Haru Yoshida, a boy who should have been seated next to her but was suspended due to injuring another student in a fight on the first day of school. Because of the favor, Yoshida now considers Mizutani a friend, and she also learns that Yoshida is in fact a very nice, gentle guy.

The manga has been running in Kodansha's Dessert magazine since 2008, and inspired a television anime series that ran last year here on CR.
