    Sentai Filmworks Licenses No Game, No Life Film

    Koby
    By Koby,

    XQKA8JW.jpgSentai Filmworks announced on Monday that it has licensed the No Game, No Life anime film.

    The film will open in Japan on July 15.

     

    Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

    Six thousand years before Sora and Shiro were even a blink in the history of Disboard, war consumed the land, tearing apart the heavens, destroying stars, and even threatening to wipe out the human race. Amid the chaos and destruction, a young man named Riku leads humanity toward the tomorrow his heart believed in. One day, in the ruins of an Elf city, he meets Shuvi, a female exiled "Ex-machina" android who asks him to teach her what it means to have a human heart.

    Although the film features the same main cast members as the previous television anime, many of them are credited as characters who lived six millennia before Sora and Shiro came into the alternate world. However, the film's latest visual (pictured right) shows returning characters, including Sora and Shiro.

     

    Atsuko Ishizuka is returning from the television anime series to direct the film at Madhouse. Jukki Hanada is also returning to handle the script, and Satoshi Tasaki is designing the characters. Kazuhiro Hocchi is drawing concept art. Eiji Iwase is back as art director, and Tsukasa Ohira is also reprising the background art setting role. However, Yoshiaki Fujisawa is composing the music. Super Sweep (Shinji Hosoe, Ayako Sasō, Takahiro Eguchi, and Fumihisa Tanaka) are returning to compose the music at Kadokawa.

    9AjKYNp.jpgThe 56th issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko Magazine published the final chapter of Hiroyuki Aigamo's manga adaptation of Reki Kawahara's Accel World light novels on Friday.

     

    Yen Press is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:

    No matter how much the times change, bullied kids aren't going anywhere. And fat junior high school student Haruyuki is one of them. But one day, Haruyuki encounters Kuroyukihime, the most beautiful and elegant girl at school, who gives him a mysterious program: "Brain Burst"...and the secret of the "Accelerated World." He may be at the bottom of the food chain at school, but Haruyuki and his destiny begin to "accelerate" with incredible speed in the virtual realm as he aims for the top!!

    Aigamo launched the manga in Dengeki Bunko Magazine in 2010, and Kadokawa published the manga's seventh volume last July. The eighth and final volume is slated for release on July 27. Yen Press published the manga's seventh volume (seen right) on March 21. Yen Press is releasing both the manga and the original light novel in English, and released the light novel's ninth volume on March 21. Kadokawa published the 21st novel volume in Japan in December.

     

    Kawahara's Accel World light novel series inspired a 24-episode television anime adaptation which premiered in 2012, and Viz Media streamed the series on Hulu as it aired in Japan. Viz Media released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2013. It also inspired the Accel World: Infinite Burst anime film last July. The novels inspired two other manga: Akariryuryuu's Axel World and Ayato Sasakura's Accel World / Dural: Magisa Garden, the latter of which will end this month.

    By Koby,

    Netflix's page for the Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, Psycho-Pass) anime Perfect Bones lists a new title of B: The Beginning. It also briefly listed a 2018 release date that has been removed as of Tuesday, as well as a new description:

    In this anime series, scientists hope "new humans" will create universal peace, but they're kidnapped by an evil group with very different plans.

    Netflix stated when it revealed the anime that it will be "the first ever original anime title to debut all episodes simultaneously in 190 countries around the world." Netflix originally gave this description of the story:

    Directed by Kazuto Nakazawa, the 12-episode series is set in the future where scientists have tried to breed the “perfect human” in hopes of keeping peace in the universe. After nearly achieving their goal through three children, the scientists send their “new humans” for further training where they are kidnapped by an evil organization set on using their powers to implement their own concept of a new world order.

    Nakazawa also directed the animated segment in Kill Bill Vol. 1, the Moondrive short in the Genius Party anthology, and Parasite Dolls. He designed the characters in Samurai Champloo, House of Five Leaves, Terror in Resonance, El Hazard, and DAYS.

    In the story, there was once a Holy Grail War waged by seven Mages and Heroic Spirits in a town called Fuyuki. However, a certain Mage took advantage of the chaos of World War II to steal a Holy Grail. Several decades have passed, and the Yggdmillennia family, who took upon the Holy Grail as its symbol, defected from the Mages' Association and declared their independence. Furious, the Association sent a force to deal with the Yggdmillennia, but they were defeated by the summoned Servants. With the Holy Grail War system changed, war at an unprecedented scale, with seven versus seven, breaks out. And so, the curtain rises on the epoch-making Great Holy Grail War.


    Aniplex USA Produces English Dub for Fate/Grand Order - First Order Anime

    By Koby,

    DDdGW6m.jpgAniplex of America announced on Saturday at its panel at A-Kon that it will produce an English dub for the Fate/Grand Order: First Order anime special, and will premiere the English dub at the Anime Expo event in Los Angeles next month.

    Aniplex of America also revealed the English dub cast for the special. Tony Oliver is the voice director of the dub. The dub stars:

    • Griffin Burns as Ritsuka Fujimaru
    • Erica Mendez as Mash Kyrielight
    • Kira Buckland as Olga Marie Animusphere
    • Xander Mobus as Romani Archaman
    • Jalen K. Cassell as Leff Lynor
    • Tony Oliver as Cú Chulainn
    • Kaiji Tang as Emiya
    • Melissa Fahn as Medusa
    • Kari Wahlgren as Altria Pendragon (Alter)

     

    Aniplex of America describes the anime:

    The year is AD 2017
    The last era in which magecraft still thrived.
    The Chaldea Security Organization was founded to focus on preserving the continuation of human history. They observe a world which magecraft couldn't observe and science couldn't measure all to prevent the certain extinction of humanity. But one day, the future that Chaldea continued to observe disappears and humanity's extinction in 2019 becomes clear. Rather, it had already happened.
    The cause seems to be related to Fuyuki, a provincial town in Japan, in the year AD 2004. There, an “unobservable region” that had not existed before appears.
    Based on the assumption that Fuyuki is the reason for humanity's extinction, Chaldea issues an order to explore, investigate, and possibly destroy this singularity – a quest for the Holy Grail: the Grand Order.

    The 74-minute television anime aired in Japan on December 31. Aniplex of America, Crunchyroll, and Daisuki streamed the special the same day.

     

    The anime is based on the Fate/Grand Order smartphone game. Aniplex released the game in Japan in summer 2015 and it has been downloaded more than 9 million times. The game is getting an English release in the United States and Canada on June 25.
