Aniplex of America Announces English Dub for March comes in like a lion and Hosts Open Auditions with Bang Zoom! Entertainment at Anime Central 2017

SANTA MONICA, CA (May 19, 2017) – Attendees at Bang Zoom! Entertainment's panel were thrilled as Aniplex of America announced their plans to produce the English dub for the celebrated TV series March comes in like a lion at Anime Central in Rosemont, Illinois. The news was met with much fanfare as Bang Zoom! Entertainment partnered with Aniplex of America to bring the Open Auditions for the series to the Midwest for the first time.

This will be the fifth year Aniplex of America and Bang Zoom! Entertainment have teamed up to host the Open Auditions, where fans test out their skills as a voice actor for a once in a lifetime opportunity to be featured in an anime series. Participants receive a special pin for auditioning as well. Past winners of the Open Auditions have been involved on the English dub for shows including Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, ALDNOAH.ZERO, Asterisk War, and Your lie in April. While Bang Zoom! Entertainment's Open Audition at Anime Central was announced a month prior on the Anime Central Facebook page, the project for the auditions had been kept tightly under wraps.

March comes in like a lion is by Chica Umino, who is best known as the creator of Honey and Clover. The series is based on an award winning manga, which boasts an impressive list of prestigious accolades in Japan including the grand prize for the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize. Originally simulcast last fall, the anime series features a notable creative team from studio SHAFT led by Director Akiyuki Shimbou (BAKEMONOGATARI, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, KIZUMONOGATARI) and Character Designer Nobuhiro Sugiyama (NISEKOI, BAKEMONOGATARI, HANAMONOGATARI). Rounding out this all-star production team is the multi-talented and seasoned veteran, Wendee Lee (Cowboy BeBop, Blue Exorcist, Your lie in April) as the Voice Director for the English dub.

"I'm very excited and thankful for this opportunity to give aspiring actors who live outside of the Los Angeles area a chance to audition and be a part of an actual anime series!” says Mami Okada, Casting Director at Bang Zoom! Entertainment. “My deepest gratitude to ACEN and Aniplex of America for fully supporting this life changing experience! I look forward to meeting & working with many talented actors!"

Bang Zoom! Entertainment will be holding Open Auditions Friday through Sunday from 11 am to 12:15 pm at Anime Central with call back auditions in the afternoon of the same day. They will also be hosting “Anime Live! A Presentation of Real Time Professional Dubbing” on Saturday and Sunday.

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.

MAIDEN JAPAN LICENSES
ANIME "REALITY" SERIES HINAKO!

HOUSTON, June 15, 2017 - It's been said that if a film or television genre exists, someone in Japan has probably made an anime about it. As proof of this theorem, MAIDEN JAPAN submits HINAKO, Japan's first interactive anime reality and exercise video series! Which may sound strange at first, but transforming robots, collecting virtual pets and dancing with video games were once all considered odd ideas as well, and look how that turned out. Beginning with TRAINING WITH HINAKO, the surprise hit that topped Amazon Japan's and other internet retail sales charts for two consecutive weeks, HINAKO's videos focus on a 'self aware' anime heroine who constantly stops to chat about her feelings with the audience. Of course, the fact that Hinako tends to be continuously bouncing up and down exercising or stretching, and that her videos' scene order can be rearranged to create different scenarios, might be as responsible for her success in Japan as the innovative format. But whatever the case, HINAKO's producers were quick to serve Hinako's legion of fans with two more interactive video experiences, SLEEPING WITH HINAKO and BATHING WITH HINAKO, all three of which will be packaged together for Maiden Japan's U.S. home video release.

Hinako used to be a normal girl, but then she became an anime character! Now she does things like play the heroine's best friend, but unlike most people in anime, Hinako is completely aware that she's being watched by an unseen audience! So, if she's doing something and thinks of something to say, she'll just say it to the people she can't see. Or CAN she see them? The most self-aware anime character ever invites you to peek behind the screen and experience Training, Bathing and even Sleeping in the intimate interactive life of HINAKO!

Four Visionary Animation Artists Take on Vivaldi's Four Seasons - Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign to Launch July 25th

June 14, 2017 (Tokyo, Japan) – The Four Seasons Animation Concert Executive Committee announces that a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign will begin on July 25, 2017 to fund four original animation works inspired by Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. Veteran NHK producer Mitsuko Okamoto leads the project alongside Oscar-nominated animation director Koji Yamamura, who serves as the project supervisor.
Yamamura has tapped four celebrated animation artists to create original animated short films for Vivaldi's The Four Seasons concerti: Anna Budanova, "Spring"; Priit Pärn and Olga Pärn, "Summer"; Atsushi Wada, "Fall"; and Theodore Ushev, "Winter." The animation works will premiere on November 19, 2017 in a live performance at the Kitakyushu Hibiki Hall in Japan with Tokyo University of the Arts President Kazuki Sawa as lead violinist and conductor.
The Kickstarter campaign will complement the campaign on the Japanese crowdfunding site ReadyFor (https://readyfor.jp/projects/fourseasons), which aims to raise 5 million yen (approximately US$45,000) by June 30. The Kickstarter campaign pre-launch website (http://vivaldi.launchrock.com/ ) offers email registration for updates.
The project is spearheaded by faculty members at Tokyo University of the Arts, where Okamoto and Yamamura serve as professors in the Department of Animation. Ann Yamamoto of Pied Piper, Inc. is an assistant professor at the university and brings crowdfunding experience to the project. The Tokyo University of the Arts faculty members are donating their time toward the realization of this project, and the funds will be used to support the original animation productions by the four artists.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

I'll be interested in seeing that if it works. I love Vivaldi's Four Seasons, I've got multiple CD versions of it.
