    By Koby,

    Sega began streaming a three-minute promotional video on Thursday for the Chain Chronicle: Haecceitas no Hikari (Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas) television anime adaptation of Sega's Chain Chronicle smartphone game. The prologue video introduces the setting, main characters, and plot of the series, and previews some of the anime's fight scenes.

     

     

    The end of the video features the anime's opening theme song "My Liberation" by Nano. A trailer streamed last month previewed Nao Tōyama's ending theme song, "True Destiny." Tōyama is also performing the film version's opening theme song "Chain the world," and Nano is performing the film version's ending theme "PARAISO."

     

    The anime project has both a theatrical and a television version. The theatrical version is split into three films, with each film screening in a two-week limited engagement in theaters. The first film debuted in Japan on December 3, the second will debut on January 14, and the third film will debut on February 11. The 12-episode television anime version will premiere on January 7. Each of the three anime films has the same story content as four television episodes.

     

    Crunchyroll and FUNimation Entertainment are streaming the anime films and television anime. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime in Japanese with English subtitles, while Funimation is offering an English SimulDub.

     

    Synopsis:

    This is the story of the Chain Chronicle, a book that describes everything that happens in the world.

     

    The citizens of the remote continent of Yggd once thought that there was nothing beyond their continent. The continent was divided into several regions, each with its own king. Though there were small skirmishes amongst them, a lord, chosen by the kings in conference, always maintained balance -- until the evil Black Army arrived. The Volunteer Army, led by Yuri, was no match for the Black Army. During the fighting, the Lord of Black captures half of the Chain Chronicle, as well as the capital. During their retreat, Yuri and the Volunteer Army encounter a boy fighting the Black Army all by himself.

     

    So begins the story of the Chain Chronicle, of the Volunteer Army's and Black Army's battles for the fate of the world, and of friendship.

    By Koby,

    ERbE1ef.jpgThe cover of the Mystery Bonita February issue has announced that fantasy manga Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau will receive an anime adaptation.

    Synopsis
    Chakuro is the 14-year-old archivist of the Mud Whale, a nigh-utopian island that floats across the surface of an endless sea of sand. Nine in ten of the inhabitants of the Mud Whale have been blessed and cursed with the ability to use saimia, special powers that doom them to an early death.

    Chakuro and his friends have stumbled across other islands, but they have never met, seen, or even heard of a human who wasn't from their own. One day, Chakuro visits an island as large as the Mud Whale and meets a girl who will change his destiny.

    Drawn by Abi Umeda, the manga began its serialization in Mystery Bonita in June 2013, and there are currently eight compiled volumes in print. It was listed tenth in the top 20 series for female readers in the 2015 "Kono Manga ga Sugoi!" annual rankings.

    In order to ensure funds are there to pay the server bills we try to have donations ready in advance. So this goal will cover the next year in server fees. As of writing this, we currently have funds for the next 3 to 4 months left. Figured it's better to be prepared rather than worrying last minute month-to-month whether or not we'll hit enough to make the payments. So if you can chip in, it's much appreciated. If you can't, we understand.

      I am really disappointed to hear that one of our very own members has decided to leave, due to people disrespecting his wishes.

      I reached out to him in his initial post because I was genuinely shocked to hear the news in the Simpsons thread.  Anyone who tries to convince a forum member to come back, solely for their releases is awfully selfish and should really reevaluate themselves, do some soul-searching, and ask why they joined this community in the first place.  If your answer is "Oh, I only come here for the downloads," you've missed the point.  These forums more than just a place to download files for your personal viewing!  Kametsu is a COMMUNITY, FIRST and FOREMOST.  REMEMBER this, folks!

      While I will CONFESS that I initially joined Kametsu to get the ONLY WEB-DL release of MTV's Good Vibes, I STAYED BECAUSE of this great COMMUNITY.  I've learned about some great software and improved on my own SKILL as an encoder, myself.

      While I haven't uploaded anything new in a while, I do plan to in the not-so-distant future, as I have some files have yet to pop up here, as I try to post things unique to Kametsu.

      I suppose that's all I have to say without sounding like I'm talking over myself.

There won't be any new subscribed threads emails or registration confirmation emails of any kind for that time period, as a result, sorry for the inconvenience.
