GKIDS Acquires North American Rights to “Goodbye, Don Glees!”

All New Feature from Acclaimed Director Atsuko Ishizuka to be Released Theatrically in 2022

https://gkids.com/wp-content/uploads...2022-05-17.jpg

GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced today it has acquired the North American distribution rights for GOODBYE, DON GLEES!. Produced by the acclaimed Studio Madhouse, the film is the first original feature from writer/director Atsuko Ishizuka, who previously directed the widely lauded series A Place Further Than The Universe. GOODBYE DON GLEES! follows the story of three friends over the course of one summer, as their backyard adventures turn one small incident to a life changing journey. It was domestically released in February 2022, and stars famed Japanese voice actors Ayumu Murase (Shoyo Hinata,” Haikyu!!”), Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro Kamado, “Demon Slayer”), Kana Hanazawa (Akane Tsunemori, “Psycho-Pass”), and Yuuki Kaji (Eren Jaeger, “Attack on Titan”). The film is represented internationally by KADOKAWA. GKIDS will release GOODBYE, DON GLEES! theatrically in both original Japanese language and an all-new English language dub this year.

“We were all incredibly moved by Atsuko Ishizuka’s perceptive and fresh take on a classic story of teenage friendship,” said GKIDS’ President David Jesteadt. “We can’t wait for audiences to share this beautiful blend of comedy and drama, set in the days of summer when anything seems possible.”

Synopsis

Teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life. Director Atsuko Ishizuka follows up her critically acclaimed series A Place Further Than the Universe with her first original feature film. With luminescent animation and lush backdrops, Goodbye, Don Glees! is a tender coming-of-age story about the fearlessness of being young and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery.

Director/Writer: Atsuko Ishizuka

Studio: Madhouse

Art Director: Ayano Okamoto

Character Design: Takahiro Yoshimatsu

Animation Production: Madhouse

Cast: Ayumu Murase, Natsuki Hanae, Yuuki Kaji, Kana Hanazawa

Runtime: 95 minutes

The remake is complete. It's worth watching especially if you like the original series. Fruits Basket The Final Season (last 13 episodes) hasn't been released on Blu-ray yet.

It's streaming on Crunchyroll: https://www.crunchyroll.com/fruits-basket and Hulu https://www.hulu.com/series/fruits-b...4-fc4367b55492.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

via Fathom Events:

Macross Frontier: The False Songstress | June 16
https://www.fathomevents.com/events/...lse-Songstress
It is the year 2059. Following the near-destruction of the human race 50 years prior, humankind has embarked upon an interstellar emigration project. The Macross Frontier fleet is on its way towards the center of the galaxy when it encounters a hostile alien species known as the Vajra. A concert by touring popstar Sheryl Nome becomes ground zero of an attack where both flight school trainee Alto Saotome and aspiring singer Ranka Lee are caught up in the chaos.

Shocked by the experience, Alto resolves to join a private military contractor, the Strategic Military Services (S.M.S) to protect his friends and soon finds himself piloting the latest state-of-the-art variable fighter, the VF-25 Messiah. All the while, with both Alto and Sheryl’s encouragement, Ranka begins the rigorous pursuit of becoming an idol singer.

As a budding love triangle starts to bloom between the three, suspicions are raised as to what the Vajra’s actual objective is and who is really behind the attacks. When Sheryl learns that her home, the Macross Galaxy fleet, has been attacked, she calls the S.M.S into action and Macross Frontier becomes the stage for an epic showdown!


Macross Frontier: The Wings of Farewell | June 30
https://www.fathomevents.com/events/...gs-of-Farewell
In the aftermath of the events of The False Songstress, Sheryl Nome remains aboard the Macross Frontier as her health begins to rapidly deteriorate. Meanwhile, Ranka Lee has become a singing sensation in her own right, and prepares for her debut concert just as a joint military operation to hunt down the Vajra Queen gets underway.


After losing his VF-25 variable fighter as a result of the skirmish, Alto Saotome is hospitalized and the two songstresses rush to his side. Just as their love triangle is about to reach its climax, the architects behind the Vajra attacks are uncovered and Sheryl finds herself behind bars, accused of treason.

It’s now a race against time for Ranka and the Strategic Military Services (S.M.S) to rescue their friend and stop the real conspirators controlling the Vajra, all while trying to protect their alien homeworld. The climactic finale of emotions, music and mecha action comes to a close as Alto must face one of the most important choices of his life.

It's a wait and see. More Macross getting released is a good thing regardless of format. With that said, Funimation released Robotech on Blu-ray last year and it's unclear anything more will be released. These movie screenings (Macross Plus last year and now Macross Frontier films next month) only involve BIGWEST and Fathom Events (no Crunchyroll/Funimation and Harmony Gold).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sentai Picks Up Boy-Meets-Vampire Anime Series “Call of the Night”

HOUSTON, TXMay 28, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Call of the Night, the highly anticipated anime adaptation of the popular vampire-themed shounen manga of the same name. The manga, written and illustrated by Kotoyama, is serialized in hit-making publisher Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine and has sold more than 2 million volumes. Sentai will stream the series exclusively on HIDIVE, its direct-to-consumer streaming service, to multiple countries across the globe beginning Summer 2022.

Wracked by insomnia and wanderlust, Ko Yamori is driven onto the moonlit streets every night in an aimless search for something he can’t seem to name. His nightly ritual is marked by purposeless introspection — until he meets Nazuna, who might just be a vampire! Ko’s new companion could offer him dark gifts and a vampire’s immortality. But there are conditions that must be met before Ko can sink his teeth into vampirism, and he’ll have to discover just how far he’s willing to go to satisfy his desires before he can heed the Call of the Night!

At the time of this writing, the trailer for Call of the Night has earned 5.4 million views since its debut on YouTube in November, 2021. Animated by LIDENFILMS (Blade of the Immortal, Kotaro Lives Alone, Tokyo Revengers), Call of the Night is directed by Tomoyuki Itamura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, The Case Study of Vanitas, Bakemonogatari). Michiko Yokote (Teasing Master Takagi-san, Cowboy Bebop, Bleach) penned the series’ script. Character designs are provided by Haruka Sagawa (key animator for Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions, Nichijou and Kill la Kill).

The series stars Sora Amamiya (Akame ga Kill!, Tokyo Ghoul, Seven Deadly Sins) as Nazuna Nanakusa, Gen Sato (Dr. Stone, Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki, Pretty Boy Detective Club) as Ko Yamori and Yumiri Hanamori (Grimoire of Zero, Laid-Back Camp, Smile Down the Runway) as Akira Asai.

Call of the Night will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE during the Summer 2022 simulcast season, with a home video release to follow.

IV on HIDIVE as part of the Summer 2022 simulcast season for audiences in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, Middle East and Latin America.

The Hestia Familia still has a long way to go before it can stand toe-to-toe with the other Familias of Orario — but before Bell can set out on his next mission, reports of a brutal murder rock the adventuring community! One of Bell’s trusted allies stands accused of the horrible crime, and it’s up to Bell and his friends to clear their name and uncover a nefarious plot brewing in the dungeon’s dark depths.

The fourth installment of the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? saga is produced by J.C. Staff (Food Wars!, The Executioner and Her Way of Life). Season 4 is directed by Hideki Tachibana (Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? III, Armed Girls Machiavellism) with series script supervision from both Hideki Shirane (Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Hayate the Combat Butler) and the light novel series’ original creator, Fujino Omori.

The series also stars Saori Hayami (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax, Spy x Family) as Ryu Lion, Yoshimasa Hosoya (Kids on the Slope, Attack on Titan) as Welf Crozzo, Maya Uchida (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!, Domestic Girlfriend) as Liliruca Arde, Kazuyuki Okitsu (Run With the Wind, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) as Ouka Kashima, Haruka Chisuga (Amagi Brilliant Park, SHIROBAKO) as Haruhime, Chinatsu Akasaki (Food Wars!

Eleven Arts Acquires Distribution Rights for Deemo Memorial Keys

The Film Adaptation Based on One of the Most Popular Mobile Rhythm Games With Over
28 Million Downloads Worldwide

Los Angeles, CA (June 1st, 2022) – Los Angeles based film distribution and production company, Eleven Arts, announced their acquisition of North American distribution rights for the anime feature film DEEMO Memorial Keys during their Industry Panel at A-Kon on Saturday, June 4th.

DEEMO Memorial Keys is based on the internationally acclaimed rhythm game developed by Rayark Inc., a Taiwanese game developer. The game, with over 28 million downloads as of 2021, was released on November 13th, 2013 for Apple devices, and December 27th of the same year for Android devices. Since its debut, Deemo was nominated for “Best of 2013” for independent developer by the App Store Taiwan, and later named “Best Game Music” by Google Play Taiwan. Additionally, the song “I Race the Dawn” won Outstanding Achievement – Vocal Theme Award at the 2013 Annual Game Music Awards. Deemo's popularity has triggered multiple projects including the film adaption, manga, and the release of its sequel, Deemo II.

This 3DCG film adaptation tells the tale of a bittersweet love story between Deemo, a mysterious lonely character who plays the piano, and Alice, a young girl who has lost her memory. The film was animated by Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell series, Haikyu!!) and Signal.MD (Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop). Shūhei Matsushita (Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress) directed the film along with Junichi Fujisaku (Blood franchise), as general director. The film's theme song named “nocturne” was produced by Yuki Kajiura, a renowned composer who has worked on scores for numerous anime works including Fate/Zero and Demon Slayer. This must-see film is full of charming characters, old and new, and illustrates the beautiful and melancholy world of Deemo.

Eleven Arts plans to announce details on release dates and ticket sales at a later date.

17-year-old run-away Yui and 8-year-old Hiyori, who lost her family and her voice, have no place to go when they run into Kiwa, a strange old lady. She offers them a place to stay, in a slightly banged-up old house overlooking the sea, a Mayoiga. Despite joining Kiwa on a whim, the two girls find comfort in Mayoiga, a legendary house, said to look after lost travelers, and the warm hospitality of Kiwa. Both girls' damaged hearts begin to heal little by little. Until one day, a variety of strange beings which Kiwa calls “Fushigitto” begin popping up around the house.
