After more than three years of hiatus, the long awaited railgun sequel is finally here and the episode opens up with Saten already in trouble with a group of delinquents for taking a shortcut through some back alleys. Uiharu and Kuroko quickly came to her rescue though, but before they can take any action, Misaka shows up and use her overpowered ability to blast through the situation. It seemed nothing has changed…
How would you start start another robot anime whose teen protagonist, as always has a latent talent for piloting? An eating contest between childhood friends who harbors romantic interest in each other probably won’t be the first to come to your mind. Points for Sunrise for this unusual opening, where Haruto, the soon pilot to be who lacks hunger (figuratively speaking of course), is defeated by Shouko, a voracious competitor with the strange shirt.
This series attracted my attention recently when I was looking for a new manga series to start following. It begun serialization in Japan last year, won a manga award, and it is also authored by Hiromu Arakawa, famous for the Full Metal Alchemist.
At the Nintendo 3DS conference held today, Capcom surprisingly revealed that the next Monster Hunter will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS! If the footage shown were truly gameplay footage, it looks truly astonishing. And this announcement was done after they revealed the sales date for Monster Hunter 3G in Japan, 10th December 2011.
I have been a fan of Every Little Thing for quite a long time, so finding out that their songs will be used for the upcoming Pokemon movie is really good news. There are two new Pokemon movies coming at the same time to double the profit , so naturally there will be two new theme songs. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the song for the Pokemon Zekrom movie, titled 響 -こえ (Koe). The above clip is for the Pokemon Reshiram, titled 宙 -そら- (Sora).
This year is also the 15th anniversary for Every Little Thing, hope they will reach their 30th anniversary one day!
Asuka Oogame, the seiyuu for Erio, cosplayed the main girl from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko. The futon even made an appearance! I think she looks as good as it can possibly gets for a blue haired real girl. As seen in animage.
The second nendoroid launched by the Good Smile Company for their Cheerful Japan campaign is from Nico Nico Douga’s web browser RPG game, Puchitto Rock Shooter (It’s free, but need to have an account to play).
Finally the wait is over! This fall, the final season, titled Shakugan no Shana III (Final). Reportedly more information will be available on Dengeki Bunko Magazine which is on sale from today, but there does not seem to be any words yet on how long this final season is going to be. Takashi Watanabe will be back as the director.
This fall’s anime lineup is shaping up to a very promising season indeed.
Just watched this when I am going through some of the PVs for the upcoming summer animes, and I initially thought there is going to be a live-action dorama for this as well. While that is not the case (the setting is also in primary school, so any dorama would not feature the seiyuus), the idea for the promotional video is nice nevertheless.
