"Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer" Continues to Dominate Japan's Box Office, Beating "Ready Player One"

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

After the franchise's record-breaking opening weekend, Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer is continuing to dominate Japan's box office and again finished in first place in its second week of release with an astonishing 820 million yen, beating Steven Spielberg's latest sci-fi action adventure Ready Player One, which made 367 million yen in its opening weekend in Japan. 

 

The 22nd Conan feature film has already earned 3.23 billion yen from its first ten days, which is a faster pace than The Crimson Love Letter, the franchise's 21st and top grossing-film released last year that made 2.75 billion yen in its first two weeks. There is no doubt that Zero the Enforcer will break the franchise's box office record soon.

 

Meanwhile, Kyoto Animation's newly-produced anime film Liz and the Blue Bird (73 screens) failed to rank in the top 10 and finished in 11th place in its opening weekend. The sequel/spin-off film is based

on the two-part novel Sound! Euphonium: Kitauji High School's Turbulent Second Movement published

in August and October 2017.

Universal Century Saga Continues in "Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative"

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

 

Sunrise has revealed plans for Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative (also written as Mobile Suit Gundam NT), a new series that is set after Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn and that continues the events of the "Universal Century" timeline. The main staff has been revealed, including:

 

  • Production, planning: Sunrise
  • Original work: Hajime Yatate, Yoshiyuki Tomino
  • Director: Shunichi Yoshizawa
  • Screenplay: Harutoshi Fukui
  • Main character draft: Kumiko Takahashi
  • Character design: Se Jun Kim
  • Mechanical design: Hajime Katoki, Eiji Komatsu
  • Color design: Takako Suzuki
  • Director of photography: Kentaro Waki
  • Art director: Yukiko Maruyama, Yoshimi Mineda
  • Special effects director: Kumiko Taniguchi
  • Sound director: Eriko Kimura
  • Editor: Daisuke Imai
  • Music: Hiroyuki Sawano

 

 

The story of Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative is described as follows:

 

U.C. 0097. The year the Laplace's Box was opened. Despite the revelation of the original charter for the Universal Century, which acknowledges the existence of Newtypes and their rights, the world remains largely unchanged.


After the destruction of the Neo Zeon remnant force known as the Sleeves, the event that has come to be known as the "Laplace Incident" seems to have drawn to a close. In the final battle, two Full Psycho Frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human imagination. The menace of the White Unicorn and the Black Lion were sealed away from public consciousness, and were consigned to be forgotten by history.


But now sightings of the RX-0 Unicorn 03, long thought lost two years ago, are being reported. Its name is Phenex, an immortal golden bird.

 

 

Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative will hit theaters in Japan beginning in November of 2018.

GACKT, Fumi Nikaidou to Star in Live-Action Film Adaptation of Mineo Maya's Comedy Manga “Tonde Saitama”

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

It is confirmed today that 44-year-old singer/actor GACKT and 23-year-old actress Fumi Nikaidou (Wolf Girl and Black Prince live-action film in 2016) are set to star in a live-action film adaptation of Mineo Maya (Patarillo!)'s comedy manga in the 1980s, Tonde Saitama. Hideki Takeuchi, who previously worked on very successful live-action films based on Tomoko Ninomiya's Nodame Cantabile and Mari Yamazaki's Thermae Romae, is attached to direct on a screenplay by Yuichi Tokunaga. The film will be distributed by Toei in 2019.

 

The three-part manga was originally published in Hakusensha's Hano to Yume magazine from 1982 to 1983, then compiled in one-volume tankobon, and didn't achieved much success at the time. 30 years after, it suddenly started gaining internet buzz, and Takarajimasha released its reprint edition in 2015. Even more surprisingly, it has printed over 300,000 copies so far, which is ten times more than originally planned. 

 

The story is set in a fictional Japan where people are discriminated according to their birthplace and

residence. Saitama Prefecture is particularly criticized by the people in Tokyo. One day, a mysterious

male student named Rei Asami transfers to Hakuhoudou Academy, a prestigious high school in Tokyo,

from America. Momomi Hakuhoudou, the male president of the school's student council and the grandson

of the director of the school, is gradually attracted by him. However, Rei's secret origin that he was

born in Saitama is accidentally revealed. He returns to Saitama to join resistance movement to eliminate

discrimination against Saitama citizens. When Momomi learns that a powerful politician tries to destroy

Rei's resistance group, he decides to go to Saitama to inform Rei of the danger.

J-Novel Club Addition Explores Anime Writer Mari Okada's Past

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

Mari Okada is a prolific anime screenwriter, with series composition credits that include the likes of Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, and Black Butler, among many others. The latest license from J-Novel Club is Okada's autobiography, so you can learn all about her rough rise in From Truant to Anime Screenwriter: My Path to "Anohana" and "The Anthem of the Heart".

 

A free preview is now available on j-novel.club, and the eBook will go on sale in early May. 

 

Description:

From Truant to Anime Screenwriter: My Path to “Anohana” and “The Anthem of the Heart” by Mari Okada, Illustrations by Masayoshi Tanaka

 

From the writer of “Anohana: The Flower We Saw Saw That Day” and “The Anthem of the Heart” comes the next expressive tale of the fight against one's own demons.

 

Mari Okada grew up in rural Chichibu, a truant for most of her adolescent life. She observed school life from afar, often refusing to leave the confines of her room. But with the fateful encounter of a visiting school teacher, Okada was able to find her way through the echelons of school using her untapped skill of turning words on a page into a unique voice that truly captured the essence of one's own youthful spirit.

 

From her own personal desires to leave home and find a place in “the world outside”, Okada came face-to-face with her own anxiety and let her stories speak out on her behalf of her struggles to truly find peace with the world around her.

 

“From Truant to Anime Screenwriter: My Path to ‘Anohana’ and ‘The Anthem of the Heart’” is a gripping autobiography that details the not-so-successful life of one of anime's biggest screenwriters as she faces the hardest challenge of all: finding herself through her own works.

"Rise of the Red Comet" is Confirmed to The Last Episode of "Gundam: The Origin" Anime Project

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

The official website for the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime series announced today on March 28 that the anime project will conclude with "Tanjou, Akai Suisei/Rise of The Red Comet," the upcoming second episode of its two-part "Battle of Loum" arc.

 

With the announcement, the site also thanks to the fans for their support, "This remarkable development would have never happened without passionate support from longtime loyal fans such as yourselves. We deeply appreciate your backing. Please enjoy the last episode, "Rise of the Red Comet," which will be released theatrically on Saturday, May 5th."

 

The anime adaptation is based on the original Gundam character designer Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's Gundam: The Origin manga, which was inspired by the first Gundam TV series in 1979-1980. The final sixth episode will get theatrical screenings in select 35 theaters across Japan from May 5, 2018,

for a limited time of four weeks. Then its DVD/Blu-ray will be released on July 13.

 

Back in August 2017, Yasuhiko reportedly expressed his desire to animate more stories from his Gundam

The Origin manga, focusing on the main part of the One Year War story. And fans expected it would be a

remake of the TV anime first series in his own style. But the possibility is now officially denied.

  

 

"Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin" anime episodes:

 

  1. "Aoi Hitomi no Casval/Blue Eyed Casval" (February 28, 2015) 
  2. "Kanashimino Artesia/Artesia's Sorrow" (October 31, 2015

Popuko and Pipimi Are Not Upset in "Batman Ninja" TV CM

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

 

Popuko and Pipimi, the small girl / tall girl combo from the riotous "crappy manga / crappy TV anime" Pop Team Epic, are continuing their respective roles as Batman and The Joker in a short but punchy TV commercial collaboration with Batman Ninja, an upcoming 3DCG anime theatrical film that transports the Dark Knight to Sengoku Era Japan.

 

 

Confused? Click here to see Crunchyroll's reporting on the genesis of the collaboration. In the commercial, Popuko / Batman is voiced by Kōichi Yamadera, while Pipimi / The Joker is voiced by Wataru Takagi. Yamadera and Takagi also provide the voices for the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime in the Batman Ninja film.

 

 

In Batman Ninja, Batman and his allies find themselves transported back in time to the Warring States Period in feudal Japan, where Batman's nemesis, the Joker, has usurped the place of the warlord Oda Nobunaga in an effort to re-write history.


 

Batman Ninja is directed by Jumpei Mizusaki and features animation by Kamikaze Douga and YAMATOWORKS. The film hits theaters in Japan on June 15, 2018, but the theaters are not upset.
