Animanga in the News: 5/22/11

+ posted by saladesu in Anime/Manga News on May 22, 2011 16:39
Here you will find a run down of today's anime and manga news! If anything sent waves through the anime and manga world today, you'll find it in this post! By the way, I'm saladesu, one of the translators and global moderators of MH, and I'll be posting a post like this every day (as much as possible, anyway). Look forward to them ;)


Detective Conan License Plates to be Issued

Hokuei Town hopes to use special license plates for motorized bicycles as a form of promotion for itself.


Hokuei Town, Tottori Prefecture, will begin issuing special localized motorized bicycle (engine capacity below 50cc) license plates adorned with illustrations from the manga "Detective Conan" on the 24th. Using the popularity of Conan, they will serve as "moving billboards" for the town.

Designs for motorized bicycle icense plates can be decided by the municipalities or even towns and villages, but recently there have been an increase in the number of municipalities using these designs to promote their areas. Shizuoka and Yamanashi Prefectures have plates depicting Mount Fuji, while Matsue City has plates depicting Matsue Castle.

New applicants for the Conan license plates will get them for free, but those who already have existing plates will need to exchange their current plates for a new one for ¥500.

Funimation Adds 2011 Fullmetal Alchemist Film, Is this a Zombie?

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? announced.


FUNimation Entertainment has confirmed with ANN that it announced its acquisition of the upcoming Fullmetal Alchemist movie, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos (Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Sei-Naru Hoshi) and Is This A Zombie? (Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?) television series at its Anime Central panel on Saturday.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Star of Milos is set to open in Japan on July 2. Kazuya Murata (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion assistant director) is directing off a script by Yuichi Shinbo (Whiteout). Kenichi Konishi (Tokyo Godfathers) is adapting the character designs from Hiromu Arakawa's original manga at the studio BONES (Eureka Seven). The movie is a stand-alone story and is not part of the original or "Brotherhood" storylines.

The official website movie began streaming the third set of trailers (in 90-second and 30-second versions) on Friday. Unlike the previous teaser trailers, this set contains the first full trailer. The website also posted the third new piece of key visual art.

Is This A Zombie? premiered on Japanese TV in January and was simulcast on Crunchyroll. The series adapts Shinichi Kimura's light novel series of the same name, which was illustrated by Kobuichi and Muririn. The story follows a normal high school boy named Ayumu Aikawa as he is killed and resurrected as a zombie by a necromancer named Eucliwood ("Eu"). Ayumu then accidentally deprives the magical girl Haruna of her powers, so she demands that Ayumu take her place in fighting her enemy Megalo.
