Kizuna Ai Lands a Role in Anime Adaptation of Ingress

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

 

AI are communicating with each other, but we probably shouldn't be worried. In this case, at least, it means an exciting guest appearance in the Ingress anime.

 

Virtual YouTuber Kizuna Ai posted a collaborative video with ADA, the AI entity from smartphone game turned anime Ingress. The two discuss the series and ADA's role in it. Eventually, since ADA admits she doesn't have much experience as a presenter, Ai briefly swaps bodies with ADA so her senpai can learn how to strike cute poses.

 

Check out the full video:

 

 

It's also been confirmed that Ai will be appearing in episode 9 of Ingress. This will mark her second anime role, her first being a small appearance in Magical Girl Site.


Ingress is currently streaming worldwide on Netflix, with Kizuna Ai's appearance set to roll out on December 15.

Armored Trooper VOTOMS Conquers the World of Board Games

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

 

Fans of classic Sunrise mecha TV anime and tactical combat board games will soon be able to combine both of those interests with a single board game, because Kokusai Tsushinsha., Ltd is releasing VOTOMS TACTICS, a board game based on the much-beloved 1983 - 1984 TV anime, Armored Trooper VOTOMS.

 

 

The board game features 10 scenarios set in the universe of Armored Trooper VOTOMS, ranging from the urban combat of Uoodo City to the guerilla warfare of the Kummen Jungle to a one-on-one confrontation between Chirico Cuvie and the "perfect soldier", Ypsilon. Most scenarios are designed for 2 players, although there is also a solo scenario and a game mode that can accomodate up to 4 players. Playtime averages between 30 and 90 minutes.

 

 

VOTOMS TACTICS comes in both regular edition and limited edition versions. The regular edition includes 117 cardboard pieces, 48 combat cards, 2 maps, 26 Armored Trooper data sheets, 2 six-sided dice, a 24 page rulebook, and a "Trial Battling" rule card. The special edition includes everything in the regular edition as well as four 3D printed Armored Trooper figures: a Scopedog, a Brutishdog, a Strikedog, and a Fatty.

 

 

The regular edition of VOTOMS TACTICS retails for 4600 yen ($40.99 US) plus tax while the limited edition retails for 8200 yen ($73.08 US) plus tax. VOTOMS TACTICS will be released in Japan on October 25, 2018.

 

 

Armored Trooper VOTOMS is directed by Ryosuke Takahashi and features animation production by Sunrise. The series is currently available via streaming on HIDIVE, who describe the story as follows:

 

Chirico Cuvie, a special forces powered-armor pilot, is on the run from his army through a war-torn galaxy for participating in a top-secret illegal mission to steal military secrets.

International Assassin Golgo 13 Teams Up with King Oscar Sardines

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

 

Murder-for-hire tastes like salty, oily fish in "Golgo Sardines", a strange (but surprisingly on-brand) collaboration between Golgo 13, Isao Takao's long-running manga about the world's greatest international assassin, and the King Oscar line of sardines in soya bean oil produced by Hagoromo Foods.

 

 

 

The collaboration, which runs from late October 2018 - March 31, 2018, includes three different versions of promotional packing featuring the stern countenance of Duke Togo (aka "Golgo 13") as well as a special three-pack set shaped like a rifle case. The rifle case set will be made available for purchase beginning on November 01, 2018.

Titled Eshigami no Kizuna (Bond of the Art Gods), the game will feature girls fashioned after some of the creator's most popular and memorable characters. Announced so far are:

 

Phoenix: CV Kaori Ishihara (Yuzuko Hazuki, Girl Friend BETA), illustrated by Takuya Fujima (ViVid Strike!)


Astro Boy: CV Rie Kugimiya (Alphonse Elric, Fullmetal Alchemist), illustrated by Tsunako (Hyperdimension Neptunia)


Black Jack: CV Nao Touyama (Reina Prowler, Macross Delta), illustrated by Kei Nanameda (Mugen Souls)


Check out the full trailer for the game, featuring the song "CREATION X CREATION" performed by Kaori Ishihara:

 

 

A few more familiar-looking faces pop up in the trailer. There's no official confirmation on who they are, but we're making educated guesses that they're Melmo, Unico, Rock Holmes, and Kimba:
