PreCure Goes Mobile with Upcoming Smartphone Game

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

Not content to let Madoka Magica rule the magical girl side of smartphone gaming, Toei's own battalion of heroines have stepped in. Later this year, the PreCure franchise will make their official dive into iOS and Android games.

 

 

Titled PreCure Tsunagaru Pazurun ("PreCure Connection Puzzle-un"), it's advertised as an easy hitofudegaki game (a type of game where you draw a shape without lifting the pen -- or, in this case, your finger or stylus). As you complete puzzles and gather cards, you'll build a larger team of characters from which you can choose as you play.

 

At present, the art only shows three teams: the early Futari wa PreCure MAX HEART team and the more recent Go Princess PreCure and Maho Girls PreCure! teams. There's no indication yet of whether more teams will be filled in either retroactively or as they premiere.

 

Preregistrations are currently open on the site via email or Twitter; additionally, preregistered players may be contacted about a closed beta in the near future.

 

 

As preregistrations stack up, more and more special gifts will become available to early adopters. At 30,000 users, a pack of 200 jewels (presumably the currency of the game) will unlock. At 50,000 and 80,000 respectively, the two cards shown above -- "Black Ribbon Nagisa Misumi" and "Polka-Dot Dress Honoka Yukishiro" -- will also unlock, both with a three-star rating.

 

PreCure Tsunagaru Pazurun will go live later this year for iOS and Android. Visit the official site for more information.

"Monthly Shōnen Sunday" Holds Contest to Create Manga Spin-Off

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

Shogakukan's Monthly Shōnen Sunday manga magazine is currently running a contest entitled the "Takagi-san Cup", and the winner of the contest will be recruited to create a four-panel comic spin-off manga for Souichirou Yamamoto's popular series, Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san ("Takagi-san is Good at Pranks").


 

The "Takagi-san Cup" is being implemented as part of Monthly Shōnen Sunday's "Newcomer Award" program. Artists both professional and amateur are encouraged to apply, and the applications are open until April 12, 2017. The goal of the contest is to create a spin-off manga set in the world of Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san, but focusing on the everday lives of Takagi and Nishikata's classmates.

 

 

In Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san, Takagi-san enjoys playing tricks on Nishikata, a boy who sits next to her in class. Nishikata tries to return the favor for all of the jokes played on him, but Takagi-san is simply too good at pulling pranks to fall for his attempts at pranking.

 

 

Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san began life as a web comic published on the Pixiv Comic website, and the series is now published in Shogakukan's Monthly Shōnen Sunday magazine.

Sanrio Introduces Secretly-Raging Office Lady Aggretsuko To English-Speaking Fans

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

Perhaps it was the success of chronically low-energy yoke Gudetama. Sanrio has introduced a new character who's more hardcore than three-apple-tall Hello Kitty or even attitude-laden Badz Maru. Meet Aggretsuko. After almost 40 Japanese shorts, they've given an English introduction to this 20-something office professional by day, secret metal-head by night. 

 

 

Aggretsuko is a cute Red Panda, working as an office associate in the accounting department of a highly respected trading company. She works in one of the biggest metropolitan areas of Tokyo. 

It’s always been a dream of Aggretsuko to work as an accountant, especially in this part of the city. But in reality, her bosses are unsympathetic and give her harsh deadlines. She ultimately has become a pushover within the company. When she gets pushed to the limit, she goes out after work and takes out her frustration and stress with heavy metal Karaoke sessions!

Toei Animation Reveals "Kirakira☆PreCure A La Mode" Character Visuals and Names

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

Toei Animation today updated the official website for the next 14th PreCure TV anime series, Kirakira☆PreCure A La Mode, revealing the visuals and names of its five main girls: Usami Ichika/Cure Whip, Himari Arisugawa/Cure Custard, Aoi Tategami/Cure Gelato, Yukari Kotozume/Cure Macaron, and Akira Kenjyo/Cure Chocolat. And it is confirmed to premiere in Japan on February 5, 2017. 

 

 

  

The story premise is written as follows: 

 

The protagonist Ichika Usami is a second year middle school student who loves sweets. When making a

shortcake for her mother who will return from abroad soon, she encounters Pekolin who is very hungry.

The shortcake made by Ichika is filled with her heart, and the "Kirakiraru" energy lodged in sweets is

spilled out from it. Then a bad fairy who is looking for "Kirakiraru" appears and makes the cake all black.

To protect the cake filled with her feeling of love, Ichika transforms into a legendary Patissier PreCure,

"Cure Whip."

 

(From left): Cure Chocolat, Cure Gelato, Cure Whip, Cure Custard, Cure Macaron

 

Toei Animation also opened the official YouTube channel for the PreCure franchise and posted a 14-second

PV to introduce the character visuals.

 

Pretty Store in Osaka starts displaying the character standees from today.

 


  

Kohei Kureta (Saint Seiya Omega) and Yukio Kaizawa (Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!) jointly served

as the series director, alongside series composition writer Jin Tanaka (Go! Princess PreCure, Anne Happy)

and character designer Marie Ino (Servant × Service animation director). Yuuki Hayashi, recently worked

on Haikyu!! and My Hero Academia, provides the soundtrack music and this is the first time for him to join

the PreCure franchise.

 

 

The OP theme song ""SHINE!! Kirakira☆PreCure A La Mode" is performed by 25-year-old Yuri Komagata.

She was one of the finalists in the 5th All Japan Anison Grand Prix held in 2011, then made her anime voice

actress debut in the 2013 TV anime Mangirl! playing Aki Torii and also singing the OP theme song for it with

other three main VAs. She has also performed as Sayoko Takayama for The Idolm@ster Million Live! franchise

since 2015.

 

Message video from Komagata

 

 

The ED song "Let's La Cooking☆Show Time" is sung by 27-year-old Kanako Miyamoto. No need to explain

to the PreCure fans, she was the singer of the four ED songs for the 4th/5th series Yes! PreCure 5/Yes! PreCure

5 GoGo! in 2007-2009, and voiced Makoto Kenzaki/Cure Sword in the 10th series DokiDokiPreCure! in 2013-2014.

After taking a hiatus from activities due to her health issues from February 2014 to July 2015, now she appears

to be entirely recovered.

 

Message from Miyamoto

  

 


 

And it is also confirmed that the girl featured in the main visual of the upcoming film PreCure Dream Stars!

is not one of the five members of the Kirakira☆PreCure team. The new film is set to be released in Japan on

March 18, 2017.

Producer Says "In This Corner of the World" May Have Its Extended Edition with 30-Minute More Footage

by news+feed@crunchyroll.com

According to the latest box office report, the anime film adaptation of Fumiyo Kouno's award-winning manga Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni/In This Corner of the World has earned 708,936,720 yen on 521,289 admission in six weeks since its release on November 12. Its most recent weekly gross was about 110 million yen, more than twice of its first week gross. Thanks to the growing box office success, more theaters are scheduled to be added in the coming weeks.

 

The director of the film, Sunao Katabuchi originally planned to make a 150-minute film on a 400 million yen budget and drew a storyboard with that length. But due to lack of funds, he had to cut off 30 minutes worth of scenes and completed the 126-minute film on a budget of 250 million yen. In a recent interview, Maki said he wanted to realize Katabuchi's original plan if the film crossed the 1 billion yen mark at the Japanese box office. Then he posted the tweet below yesterday, "We will do the extended edition, I'm just saying." The official announcement is expected to come soon.
