VIDEO: Grail Wars Head to American West in "Fate/strange fake"

by Scott Green
Alainmendez

I will point of Ryohgo Narita's involvement with this is worth noting if nothing else.

Along with Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works and Heaven's Feel anime and Fate/grand order smartphone game news, this weekend's Fate Project presentation announced plans for print series based on Fate/strange fake, the 2008 elaborate April Fool's joke from TYPE-MOON and writer Ryohgo Narita (Baccano, Durarara).

 

Narita and artist Shizuki Morii will be back for planned Fate/strange fake novels and manga, coming simultaneously from TYPE-MOON books and Dengeki Bunko.

 

 

 

The TYPE-MOON wiki describes the premise:

The plot centers around a Grail War faultily copied from the Third Holy Grail War in Fuyuki. After the end of the third Grail War, an organization from the United States that has magi separate from the London based Mage Association as members took data from Fuyuki's Grail War and planned their own ritual. After seventy years, they used the city Snowfield as the Sacred Land for their own Grail War. They were unable to successfully copy every aspect of the ritual, which lead to it acting only as an imitation that has lost the Saber class and allowed for the summoning of strange Servants due to the definition of a "hero" being blurred.

The Mage's Association has sent Rohngall and his pupil, Faldeus, to investigate the city and the status of the war. Faldeus, a spy from the US organization, has Rohngall sniped upon arrival, despite knowing that Rohngall was simply a puppet. He announces that their Holy Grail War has been in development and that it is real, which causes an uproar at the Clock Tower, and wishes to "advertise" the project to the Association.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kotobukiya announces ARTFX J Cardcaptor Sakura

by Martin Siggers

Those of you who've followed the blog will know of my near continuous requests for scale Cardcaptor Sakura figures. Well, good news has come out of Wonder Festival - it's finally happening! 

Surprisingly, though, they won't be coming from Good Smile Company, who we thought had the licence sewn up. Instead, a placard in the Kotobukiya booth announced that they'll be adding both the titular Sakura Kinomoto and long-time friend/rival Syaoran Li to their ARTFX J range. The announcement is accompanied by CLAMP illustrations, suggesting that Koto may be styling the characters more after their manga incarnations than their anime ones.

Needless to say I'm totally thrilled by this. Kotobukiya have turned out some incredible figures in the ARTFX J range recently, so outstanding quality is practically a given. I'm really happy to see Syaoran announced alongside Sakura too - he's such a key character and it's always great to see more boys in the figure world. We've not got any details beyond a 2015 release date, but we'll be certain to pounce on anything the moment it comes out.

Kodansha Announces "Let's Dance a Waltz" and "Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches"

by Scott Green
Alainmendez

Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches! Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches!

I also heard A Silent Voice was picked up as well.

Manga publisher Kodansha Comics announced today at San Diego Comic-Con that it would add two new series to its 2015 slate: the hit shonen series Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches, and a moving tale of ballroom dance, Let’s Dance a Waltz.

 

Kodansha descrbes the series

Miki Yoshikawa’s Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches is one of the most popular series on Crunchyroll. Class troublemaker Ryu Yamada is already having a bad day when he stumbles down a staircase along with star student Urara Shiraishi. When he wakes up, he realizes they have switched bodies—and that Ryu has the power to trade places with anyone with only a kiss! Plus, it turns out he’s not the only kid at school with a few magic tricks up his sleeve… Yoshikawa used to be an assistant on Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail.

 
Natsumi Ando, author of the fan-favorite Kitchen Princess, returns with a charming tale of what it feels like when you just can’t fit in with Let’s Dance a Waltz. When Hime Makimura was young, her mother told her that she could be like a princess someday. Now that Hime is in middle school, overweight and unpopular, life is a cruel disappointment. Tango Minami is a popular high school boy who hides his job as a ballroom dance instructor to maintain his image. But when Tango’s mom urges Tango to take Hime as a student, everything gets turned upside down! Will Tango’s classmate find out about his embarrassing job?!  And will Hime find the self-confidence needed to be like a princess on the ballroom floor?!

Optimus Prime Figure Disguises Itself as an Original PlayStation

by Joseph Luster

Peek in your closet or scan your gaming shelf and you might just find a robot in diguise. Takara Tomy Arts is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Transformers along with the 20th anniversary of Sony's original PlayStation by mashing the console and Autobot leader Optimus Prime together to make a super gaming robot. 

 

 

Due out in early 2015, this is actually the second project that mixes Transformers and video game systems. There's also a Mega Drive Megatron due out in September for ¥10,000 ($98). Yep, you'll finally be able to realize your dream of combining the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis console and the nefarious Decepticon villain into a transforming figure.

I do love me some Mine Yoshizaki.

Sgt. Frog author Mine Yoshizaki showed a fondness for playing with the numerical puns associated with his characters. Today's date for sample 7.23 could be pronounced like na-tsū-hi... or an approximation of Natsumi. This was celebrated today with a special sketch of the Hinata family's Devil Summer.

New "Macross" Anime In Its Planning Stages

by Scott Green

The March 26th end of the latest Japanese TV rebroadcast of 2008's Macross Frontier concluded with the announcement that a new TV anime is the works. There was no additional information at the time, and it sounds like you probably shouldn't expect much more soon.

 

Franchise co-creator, mecha designer and later director Shoji Kawamori has been doing interviews. Leading up to a broadcast of Macross Plus and Macross 7: The Galaxy is Calling Me, on Mantanweb, he was reminiscing about subjects like the famous Itano Circus and introduction of CG effects. There, he mentioned that was thinking about how to bring the series forward and said that the new Macross was in its planning stages.

 

He also told Wowow that while ideas are currently being refined, he was working out the essential role for music in Macross' next incarnation.

Studio Ghibli's Latest Film "Marnie" Earns Less Than Half of "Arrietty" in 1st Weekend

by Mikikazu Komatsu

Studio Ghibli's latest anime film When Marnie Was There directed by 41-year-old Hiromasa Yonebayashi opened in Japan with 461 screens on July 19 and earned a very disappointing 379,000,000 yen (about US$3,734,000) with 285,200 ticket sales in its first weekend. It took third place in the weekend box office following Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction in 1st and Maleficent in 2nd. The result was only 42% of his first feature film The Secret World of Arrietty, which made about 900,000,000 yen with 680,000 tickets in its opening weekend on July 17-18, 2010, in 447 screens.

 

For the past couple of weeks, it has been strongly rumored that Toshio Suzuki, Ghibli's producer and co-founder, is now seriously considering the closure of the anime production division of the internationally acclaimed studio, after the retirement of his long-time colleague Hayao Miyazaki. In the

latest episode of his "Ghibli Asemamire" podcast posted on June 27 before the release of the film, he

actually said that the future of Ghibli depended on the results (both box office and critics) of When Marnie

Was There.

"Magimoji Rurumo" TV Anime Supports Anti-illegal Downloading Campaign at Summer Comiket

Alainmendez

I will totally torrent the anime of this. ;)

The Japanese official site for the ongoing TV anime Magimoji Rurumo has announced that it will collaborate with JIMCA (Japan and International Motion Picture Copyright Association, Inc.) for their anti-illegal downloading campaign titled "Stop! Ihou Download Returns" scheduled to be held at the Comic Market 86 on August 15-17.

 

At their booth (No.331) in the industry section of the world's biggest doujinshi event, they will distribute a free DVD to teach the harmful effects of copyright theft with an original shopper featuring the anime character illustration posing "No" to illegal downloading. The booth will also have photo sessions with the famous camera-headed "Movie Theft Man" everyday, and talk shows with special guests (hopefully anime voice actresses?) on 16 and17.

 

In Japan's copyright law, knowingly downloading copyright infringing materials (movies, music, TV

programs, etc.) can result in a two-year jail sentence or a fine of 2 million yen (about US$19,700).

Tomopop Review: FuRyu's Cardcaptor Sakura

by Martin Siggers

The drought of Cardcaptor Sakura figures has long been a source of incredible frustration to me. The series has everything you need to make an army of great collectibles - cute girls, handsome boys, annoying mascots and an adorable lead character who has an endless supply of flashy outfits. Even though Good Smile Company announced a very adorable Nendoroid, there's still a glaring lack of scale static figures. So when FuRyu announced they would be making a prize figure of Sakura, fans jumped all over it. Can something traditionally cheap and cheerful live up to a long held desire though?

These Are The Longest Words In The English Language, And They're Insane

My mom and Carol saw this stop when they went to England.

What is wrong with the English language? I know it's one of the most difficult languages to learn because it's made entirely out of exceptions and we refuse to acknowledge the rest of the planet's agreed-upon vowel usage. But as Tom Scott shows in his new "Things You Might Not Know" video, this is just madness.
