    Live-Action Akira Film Green-Lit by Warner


    Quote Quote:
    The Variety entertainment trade magazine is reporting on Wednesday that Warner Bros. has green-lit the live-action film adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira manga. Production on what Variety describes as a "potential tentpole project" is set to begin in late February or early March. (A "tentpole" franchise is a property which will, in theory, support a studio financially for much of a particular movie season.)

    According to Variety, the film's current story goes as follows: "Set in New Manhattan, the cyberpunk sci-fi epic follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend, discovered with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities, from government medical experiments."

    Spoiler show


    Quote Quote:
    Early last September, it was announced that Mobile Suit Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino was working on a new SF project called G Reko. Now, the Mechadamashii web site has turned up a new magazine image regarding this mystery proejct, which Mechadamashii claims is "the new Yoshiyuki Tomino anime set over a 1000 years in the UC timeline's future".

    Here's a translation of the text that appears on the page itself, giving away lots of clues about G-Reko's staff and premise.

    Bottom left:
    Yoshida Kenichi

    Animator, Illustrator. Entered Studio Ghibli in '90. Freelancer as of '99. Beginning with Turn A Gundam, worked on the genga production for multiple productions. Character designer for Eureka 7.

    Bottom right:

    "It begins here....?

    Hearing Director Tomino's idea, his friend Yoshida Kenichi drew this illustration on his own. The structure is... a space elevator? Standing there is a human? Or is it...."

    Third Season of Queen's Blade Announced - Forums - MyAnimeList.net

    Quote Quote:
    The December issue of Monthly Hobby Japan magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a television anime adaptation of the Queen's Blade: Rebellion storyline has been green-lit. The story originated in Hobby Japan's Queen's Blade fantasy game book franchise that also inspired the previous two television anime series and several original video anime volumes.

    The Queen's Blade: Rebellion game books serve as a sequel to the original Queen's Blade game books, which are Japanese spinoffs from Flying Buffalo's Lost Worlds game series. In combat picture book games, players simulate turn-based fighting with books that each represent a character.

    The story is set four years after the first storyline and revolves around Annelotte, the rebelling knight princess who stands up to the tyranny of the new queen. The Rebellion storyline already inspired two prologue original video anime DVDs that are being bundled with the Queen's Blade Premium Visual Books.

    Japanese Government To Sell Film Rights of Anime to Hollywood

    Quote Quote:
    According to Asahi Newspaper, Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ) has invested six billion yen ($77 million) in the establishment of a new company "All Nippon Entertainment Works". The company will acquire film rights of Japanese anime and toys and produce movies in Hollywood with producers in the US.

    Not sure what they want with it. I wonder if it means we will see an adaptation of the anime we watch in English or something like that?

    BLOOD-C: The Last Dark Anime Film's Trailer Streamed

    Quote Quote:
    The official website for the Blood-C: The Last Dark anime film began streaming a trailer on Saturday. The last episode of the Blood-C television anime series had revealed in September that the film will open in theaters in Japan on June 2, 2012. The manga creator team CLAMP developed the story and original character designs for the vampire television series and film, and Production I.G has been animating both projects. Naoyoshi Shiotani (Tokyo Marble Chocolate, key animator on Blood+ and Blood-C) is directing the film instead of the television version's director Tsutomu Mizushima. Writers Jun'ichi Fujisaku and Nanase Ohkawa (CLAMP), animation character designer/chief animation director Kazuchika Kise, and voice cast members Nana Mizuki (Saya Kisaragi) and Kenji Nojima (Fumito Nanahara) are returning from the television series.

    Niconico, the English version of the online
    video service Nico Nico Douga, streamed the television series outside of Japan as it aired.

    Look forward to the preview, kind of; wondering where and how they will bring the anime to a bigger version.
