Attack on Titan Live-Action Movie Second Trailer (Now With Subtitles)

news_xlarge_shingeki04

The wait for Attack on Titan’s live-action theatrical release is winding down as we get closer to the debut pf part one in theaters (in Japan anyway). Its only right to take advantage of the time left to get fans excited and with that comes a second trailer for the live-action adaptation. This time around the trailer includes subtitles and some extended scenes of the titans in all their CGI glory. For what its worth, it looks great. But don’t take my word for it when you can check out the trailer below.

Don’t know if it can get much better than that. The popularity of Attack on Titan has grown exponentially since the manga began its run in 2009, and again in anime form in 2013. Expect it to take another jump when part one opens August 1, 2015 with part two scheduled for September 19, 2015.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Anime : <=To Be Continued?

HOWWW is the first week of Summer treating you,homies andhomettes?!  This is your man, RemyTyndle over here, and I do believe it’s about that time to discover our hidden potential passed down our family bloodline, because I’m about to get you all hip toJoJo’s BizarreAdviggity!!


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure logo

For those of you who aren’t familiar, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure originated as a Japanese manga series– one of the best-selling (80 million copies sold nationwide JPN) and longest running (1986-present) in history, written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki.  It started out from being published through Weekly Shonen Jump up until Part 7 in 2004, and then transferred to Monthly Ultra Jump from thereon.

December 17, 1990 Weekly Shonen Jump Cover, featuring Part 3 Protagonist, Jotaro Kujo.

June 2011 Monthly Ultra Jump Cover, featuring Part 8 Protagonist, Josuke Higashikata.

The story focuses on the strange stories of individual characters who stem from a family bloodline, known as “Joestar”, all of whom’s names are able to be contracted as the nickname “JoJo”.  The franchise is currently divided into 8 parts and the typical plot is as follows; the affirmative Joestar family member discovers an extraordinary ability within themselves and realize their destiny to defeat supernatural threats.

The Main Protagonists from Part 1-8 From Left to Right: Jonathan, Joseph, Jotaro, Josuke (Part 4), Giorno, Jolyne, Johnny, Josuke (Part 8).


 

This iconic franchise has given birth to various forms of media over the years, but in the case of this article, we shall acknowledge the current anime adaptation since 2012, produced by David Production studio. In 3 years, David Production has successfully covered Parts 1-3.  Now, it’s Friday, and usually at this time, I’d be watching the latest episode, but as of the previous week, the finale of Part 3’s anime adaptation, Stardust Crusaders has hit the airwaves and come to an end.

David Production’s Animation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure characters from Parts 1-3.

A screenshot of David Production’s special computer graphic animation (primarily used for the opening sequences) of the heroes of Part 3.

With the fans having so much appreciation for the effort David Production put forth towards the JoJo’s series thus far, many including myself are hoping for the continuation with Part 4, Diamond is Unbreakable.  It has been confirmed that the studio would like to continue the anime through Part 4, perhaps even beyond, however, the deciding factor depends on the fundraising for the necessary production budget.

A DVD release of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 1 is scheduled for release to North America this fall, published through Warner Home Video, and is now available for pre-order:  http://www.rightstufanime.com/JoJos-Bizarre-Adventure-Season-1-DVD-Hyb

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 1 DVD (Hyb) will cover Parts 1 and 2, and will feature both English and Japanese audio, with subtitles included. Available 9/22/15

There are also Japanese released Blu-ray disc sets as well, now available at Amazon.  They come with English subtitles and the discs are compatible for all regions, so if you consider yourself an avid collector of this all things JoJo, these would be great products to purchase in support of David Production.

JoJo No Kimyo Na Boken 1 (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Vol. 1) [Blu-ray]. These home entertainment editions of the David Production anime cover up to the second Vol. of Part 3. Visit Amazon in order to purchase your very own copies today.

If you are already a fan of the franchise and you like what you are seeing from David Production’s animated adaptation of the series, show your support by purchasing a collection of these bizarre products of home entertainment!  The possibility of Part 4’s animation becoming a reality lies in your hands.  If you are just now familiarizing yourself to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, thanks to this piece of literature, give the series a try, and you may just become a fan yourself.

Starting from 1986, as you read towards the more recent chapters, you will see how Araki’s artwork with the manga has evolved throughout the decades into a thing of sheer beauty, and David Production’s tribute to the manga by adding pop art style elements to their animation is certainly a unique site to behold.  I hope to have hooked your interest in the bizarre world of JoJo’s, and you will begin supporting this legendary brand in any way possible, and just in case you’re wondering, yes, there is an JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure abridged series.

With all of the outlets available, there are plenty of ways to get into the series. Of course once you do, get ready to join the JoJo’s Bizarre hype train and *inhale*…ORA ORA ORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORA!!!ORAAAA!!!!!

7/24/15

Second season of Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! It has been a month since Illya and Miyu became magical girls and sealed all of the Class Cards. Rin and Luvia have been forced to remain in Japan to clean up the aftermath, such as the now-unstable magic in the area’s ley lines. While helping with the cleanup, the seal on Illya’s mysterious innate magic goes berserk and she loses control of her transformation. By the time she has realized what happened, a mysterious girl who looks eerily like Illya appears, apparently bent on bringing destruction down on the original whose heart she seems to have spawned from, and making matters worse she holds the power of the Archer Class Card, with which Illya holds a special bond, within her body.

June Upcoming Anime Movies!

This month there are only a few new anime movies being released. But that still doesn’t mean they aren’t really good movies and more than enough of them to choose from. Before the summer officially begins, here are some of the movies I am looking forward to.

He has a fight with his best friend Kenta Saijō. Then they suddenly meet a mysterious, red-eyed girl named Noruda, and a huge typhoon hits the middle school.

However, when the students attempt to leave the school gates, a single email is sent to them, and the curtain on a new story for μ’s begins.

This will be the third feature film in the series produced by Japanese studio Production I.G., and the first at feature-length since Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence in 2004.The film will tie into the plot of Ghost in the Shell: Arise, with the release of two additional episodes in the Arise – Alternative Architecture broadcast created to bridge the gap.

Now that summer is around the corner, everyone has all the time to check out some of these movies. Some you may already be familiar with and you can live through all the adventures again.

Dragon Ball Super Will See Manga Launch Next Month!

Dragon-Ball-Freeza-Super

Last month news came that Dragon Ball would finally see a return to the small screen with Dragon Ball Super! Fans were excited enough to hear the good news and now it gets even better with word coming in that the series will be receiving a manga adaptation as well.

The manga will officially debut in about a month so and will be headed by Toyotaro who’s famous for creating the Dragon Ball AF fan made manga as well as the Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ manga. With the manga coming out a month before the anime, this makes for a perfect promotional tool for the upcoming anime in July.

The anime itself will air on Fuji TV, Sunday mornings at 9 in Japan. No official date has been set. There is also no word yet on whether the series will see an English dub. Hopefully news will come soon on both of these fronts. When it does, you’ll be able to read it here.

Fly With Astro Boy in His First Teaser for the Upcoming Reboot!

wp_ss_20150323_0003[1]Over the weekend at Monaco Anime Game International Conference, fans got a look at a teaser for the upcoming anime reboot for one of the pillars of manga and anime in Astro Boy and it looks like one of the lucky fans got to record the whole thing.

Created in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, Astro Boy is one of the oldest and most beloved manga/anime characters in history. His influence is felt heavily throughout the years and in so many different anime and manga. Astro Boy has had many other adaptations going as far back as his anime in 1963,  and most recently a CGI film in 2009 (which I’d like to forget happened).

Now the anime itself will use both 3-D and 2-D animation and will run about 26 half-hour episodes, however there is no news on an American distributor picking it up. The target audience will be pre-teens (ages 8-12), but we all know old school fans (such as myself) won’t be able to help but check it out. Take a look at the teaser below and when there is news on a release date, we’ll be here to deliver it.

aramajapan_attack-on-titan-posterFor all the anime/manga fans, one of the biggest phenomenons in recent memory has beenHajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin). After years of issues with production relating to the manga’s Live Action release, it finally found its footing with word that the film would be directed by Shinji Higuchi (Kill la Kill, Tekken: Blood Vengence). He would later be joined by Yūsuke Watanabe (Gantz Live Action and DBZ: Battle of the Gods),Tomohiro Machiyama and Isayama who would write the script. With the team in place, the plan was to split the film in two parts with the first part set for a release in the summer of 2015.

We are getting closer to the date of the first film and with that comes a look at the first full length trailer. Check it out below!

Awesome stuff coming from the trailer. Looks like fans will get their fill of action and excitement when part one drops on August 1st with the second scheduled for September 19th.
