Fate/strange Fake - TV ANIME SERIES CONFIRMED

This is a Holy Grail War covered in lies.

THE TV ANIME SERIES IS CONFIRMED!

STORY:
In a Holy Grail War, Mages (Masters) and their Heroic Spirits (Servants)
fight for the control of the Holy Grail—an omnipotent wish-granting device said to fulfill any desire.

Years have passed since the end of the Fifth Holy Grail War in Japan.
Now, signs portend the emergence of a new Holy Grail in the western American city of Snowfield.

Sure enough, Masters and Servants begin to gather...
A missing Servant class...
Impossible Servant summonings...
A nation shrouded in secrecy...
And a city created as a battleground.

In the face of such irregularities, the Holy Grail War is twisted and driven into the depth of madness.

Let the curtain rise on a masquerade of humans and heroes,
made to dance upon the stage of a false Holy Grail.

PERFECT BLUE - SATOSHI KON FEST
Release date: Sept 6-10
The groundbreaking and rarely screened first film from the legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Paranoia Agent), returns to theaters for its 25th anniversary. Rising pop star Mima has quit singing to pursue a career as an actress and model, but her fans aren't ready to see her go... Harboring feelings of guilt and haunted by visions of her former self, Mima's reality and fantasy meld into a frenzied paranoia. As her stalker closes in, in person and online, the threat he poses is more real than even Mima knows, in this iconic psychological thriller that has frequently been hailed as one of the most important animated films of all time.




AXCN: GHOST IN THE SHELL
Release Date: Nov. 8-12
2029: A female cybernetic government agent, Major Motoko Kusanagi, and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of 'The Puppet Master,' a mysterious and threatening computer virus capable of infiltrating human hosts. Together with her fellow agents from Section 9, Kusanagi embarks on a high-tech race against time to capture the omnipresent entity. Director Mamoru Oshii's award-winning cyber-tech thriller, based on the comic book by Shirow Masamune, is lauded as one of the leading Japanese animation films of all time.




TOKYO GODFATHERS – SATOSHI KON FEST
Release Date: Dec. 11-13
TOKYO GODFATHERS, the acclaimed holiday classic from master director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Perfect Blue), returns to theaters to celebrate its 20th anniversary. On Christmas Eve, three homeless companions stumble upon a baby girl in a garbage heap. They name her Kiyoko, and vow to care for her as they track down her family. Haunted by memories of their own broken pasts and pursued by a cast of shadowy characters from Tokyo's nightlife, Hana, Gin and Miyuki overcome their differences and learn to trust one another as a new, makeshift family. With the New Year fast approaching, the mystery behind baby Kiyoko deepens, and these unlikely heroes discover the surprising -- and sometimes miraculous -- connections that have brought them all together. Co-written by Keiko Nobumoto (Cowboy Bebop) and featuring a whimsical score by Keiichi Suzuki, TOKYO GODFATHERS is a masterpiece by turns heartfelt, hilarious and highly original, a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.




COWBOY BEBOP: THE MOVIE
Release Date: Jan. 21-23
Caught up in a world of dreams, lost in the cruelty of reality. What should have been an easy bounty turns into biological war after a terrorist gets hold of a deadly virus. Drawn in by the pretty price on the mastermind's head, Spike and the Bebop crew are ready to collect a much-needed reward. Unfortunately, the gang's about to find themselves in more trouble than money when the terrorist threatens to unleash the virus on Halloween--effectively killing everyone on Mars. With little time and leads that seem more dreamy than helpful, they'll have to use their own bag of tricks to stop a dangerous plot.




PAPRIKA – SATOSHI KON FEST
Release Date: Feb. 7-11 2024
29 year old Dr. Atsuko Chiba is an attractive but modest Japanese research psychotherapist whose work is on the cutting edge of her field. Her alter-ego is a stunning and fearless 18 year old 'dream detective,' code named PAPRIKA, who can enter into people's dreams and synchronize with their unconscious to help uncover the source of their neurosis. At Atsuko's lab, a powerful new psychotherapy devise known as the 'DC-MINI' has been invented by her brilliant colleague, Dr. Tokita, a nerdy overweight genius. Although this state-of-the-art device could revolutionize the world of psychotherapy, in the wrong hands the potential misuse of the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate the dreamer's personality while they are asleep. When one of the only four existing DC-MINI prototypes is stolen in the final stages of research, around the same time that Dr. Tokita's research assistant Himuro goes missing, Atsuko suspects it's not a coincidence. If the DC MINI isn't found, this could lead to the government's refusal to sanction the use of the machine for psychotherapy treatment. When several of the remaining researchers at the lab start to go mad, dreaming while in their waking states, haunted by a Japanese doll which featured heavily in the dreams of one of Himuro's schizophrenic patients, Atsuko knows for sure that whoever is manipulating the machines has a more evil purpose. The DC MINI is being used to destroy people's minds.

GKIDS is honored to announce the acquisition of North American rights to THE BOY AND THE HERON, the new film from Hayao Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli.

Debuting in Japan as #君たちはどう生きるか (translated as How Do You Live), THE BOY AND THE HERON opens in N. American theatres 2023.

GKIDS ANNOUNCES THE NORTH AMERICAN ACQUISITION OF HAYAO MIYAZAKI'S “THE BOY AND THE HERON”

NEW FILM FROM STUDIO GHIBLI OPENS IN JAPAN TODAY

ACADEMY AWARD® WINNER HAYAO MIYAZAKI'S FIRST FEATURE IN 10 YEARS

NEW YORK (July 14, 2023) — GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of award-winning animation, announced its acquisition of North American distribution rights to THE BOY AND THE HERON, the highly anticipated new film from the legendary Academy Award-winning Hayao Miyazaki, co-founder of Japan's celebrated animation house, Studio Ghibli. Released in Japan as Kimitachi wa Do Ikiruka (translated as How Do You Live), the film is an original story written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, produced by the Oscar®-winning Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki, and features a musical score from Miyazaki's long-time collaborator Joe Hisaishi.

The all-rights deal marks a continuation of GKIDS' long-standing relationship with Ghibli. GKIDS will release THE BOY AND THE HERON theatrically in North America later this year.

Informally referred to in English-language press by its tentative title, How Do You Live, the official international title is unveiled as THE BOY AND THE HERON. The hand-drawn, animated feature — director Miyazaki's first feature film in 10 years — opens exclusively in Japanese cinemas this weekend. In an unprecedented decision by Studio Ghibli, no images, trailers, synopses, advertisements, or other information about the film have been made available to the public prior to its release in theaters in Japan. In keeping with this policy, GKIDS will not release any further details or marketing materials at this time.

"Hayao Miyazaki is a living legend in filmmaking, as evidenced by his Academy Award win for Spirited Away and his two Oscar nominations for Howl's Moving Castle and The Wind Rises,'" said David Jesteadt, GKIDS president. "It's been ten years since the world has seen a new film from Miyazaki-san, and GKIDS is so proud and honored to unveil his latest, highly anticipated masterpiece in North America."

GKIDS handles North American distribution for the famed Studio Ghibli library of films across all theatrical, home video, digital, and streaming platforms. The company has released Studio Ghibli's most recent films in theaters nationwide, including the Academy Award-nominated The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, the Academy Award-nominated When Marnie Was There, From Up on Poppy Hill and more. Since 2017, GKIDS has produced the annual Ghibli Fest, a monthly nationwide theatrical program of Ghibli film screenings in over 800 theaters across the country. The series continues this year with a focus on the films of Hayao Miyazaki.

Miyazaki Hayao’s Final Film to Be Known as ‘The Boy and the Heron,’ Sets North America Release

U.S.-based distributor Gkids has acquired North American rights to Japanese animation maestro Miyazaki Hayao’s final movie. It will release it as “The Boy and the Heron.”

The highly-anticipated film released in Japanese theaters earlier on Friday as “Kimitachi wa Do Ikiruka” (“How Do You Live”). In an unprecedented decision by producer Studio Ghibli no images, trailers, synopses, advertisements, or other information about the film have been made available to the public prior to its Japanese theatrical outing.

“How Do You Live” has been the movie’s informal English title throughout its production phase, but Gkids says that “The Boy and the Heron” is now the official international title. In keeping with Ghibli’s Japan omerta, Gkids says it will not release any further details or marketing materials at the moment.

The film is understood to be based on Genzaburo Yoshino’s 1937 YA book of the same name which tells the story of a 15-year-old boy as he goes on a journey to discovery spiritual growth, poverty and the meaning of life with the help of his uncle, whose advice is communicated to him from a journal. How closely it actually hews to that story is only being discovered by theatrical audiences from Friday.

Gkids indicated that it would give “The Boy and the Heron” a North American theatrical release “later this year.” The picture is also expected to make appearances at various fall festivals. And a late 2023 North American theatrical outing means it has a significant chance of making a run for the Oscars.

The hand-drawn film is written and directed by Miyazaki, produced by the Oscar-winning Studio Ghibli co-founder Suzuki Toshio and features a musical score from Miyazaki’s long-time collaborator Joe Hisaishi.

“Miyazaki is a living legend in filmmaking, as evidenced by his Academy Award win for ‘Spirited Away’ and his two Oscar nominations for ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ and ‘The Wind Rises’,’” said David Jesteadt, Gkids president. “It’s been ten years since the world has seen a new film from Miyazaki-san, and Gkids is so proud and honored to unveil his latest, highly anticipated masterpiece in North America.”

Gkids has handled North American releases of Studio Ghibli’s Oscar-nominated “The Tale of The Princess Kaguya,” Oscar-nominated “When Marnie Was There,” and “From Up on Poppy Hill.” Since 2017, it has produced the annual Studio Ghibli Fest, a monthly North American theatrical program of Ghibli film screenings in over 800 theaters.

Miyazaki was separately given an honorary award at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards in 2014. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures paid tribute to his artwork with a special exhibit when the museum opened in September 2021.

Studio Ghibli last year opened a theme park based on Miyazaki’s works, which features rides and attractions inspired by films such as “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Princess Mononoke.” A “My Neighbor Totoro” stage adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company also opened in London, U.K.

Ascendent Animation Announces an English Dub of 'Seduced By My Best Friend'

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 2023 - Ascendent Animation is proud to announce their latest acquisition, “Seduced by My Best Friend” (黒ギャルになったから親友としてみた) Alongside this acquisition, we are also proud to announce the production of an English dub of the series.

Seduced by My Best Friend is being dubbed in partnership with the Japanese company, WWWave Corporation. The show is based off of a Japanese manga written and illustrated by the artist, Yupopo Orishima. (Volume 3 of this series releases today and is now available on Amazon Japan.)

The show is a gender swap/bender story about 2 playboys, “Shion” and his best friend, “Rui”. After a vengeful encounter with a woman Shion had previously scorned, she drugs him and he wakes up in the body of a woman! Will Shion ever find a cure and get back to the way they were?

The show follows an adult romantic storyline, featuring tender moments, relationship woes, Gender Bending, BL, and passionate stories. Each episode runs about 7 minutes long. Kevin Frane (428 Shibuya Scramble, Resonance of Fate, Caressing My Hibernating Bear) will be directing the English version. Steve Warky Nunez (Henkei Shoujo, Luminous Avenger IX- 2, Sonic the Hedgehog), will helm the audio engineering/mixing, and Assistant Director will be Elsie Lovelock (Show Time!, Demon King Evelogia, Genshin Impact). Once more, K. Cornell Kellum (Vice Squad, The Titan's Bride, Henkei Shoujo), will return as Executive

Producer. Also returning is Reece Bridger with Talent Sourcing from No Studio in Particular.

When asked about the show, Nunez commented, “We're very excited to bring this show to English audiences. We hope that you'll enjoy the result of all of our hard work!” The Coolmic website is publishing the manga in English digitally under the title, “F**ked by My Best Friend”.

Genre: LGBTQ+/Romance/Drama/BL/GenderBend Episodes: 8 Theme Song: " HOT♡SUMMER " (Sung by the voice actor for Shion)

Adult Swim Orders ‘Lazarus,’ New Animated Series From ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Director Shinichirō Watanabe

Adult Swim has greenlit “Lazarus,” a new Toonami series from renowned anime director Shinichirō Watanabe, known for his work helming episodes of “Cowboy Bebop,” “Samurai Champloo” and “Kids on the Slope.”

Produced by anime studio MAPPA, “Lazarus” also recruits the contributions of “John Wick” series director Chad Stahelski, who designed several action sequences for the series, along with the musical talents of saxophonist Kamasi Washington; producer, DJ and musician Floating Points; and producer, DJ and musician Bonobo. The trio will provide a jazz and electronic score for the project.

Watanabe will pull the curtain back on the series at the Adult Swim Festival in San Diego on Saturday at 5:15 p.m., as part of the Comic-Con event Toonami on the Green.

“Lazarus,” which is already in production, takes place in 2052. The series follows a Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist that develops a drug called Hapuna — a cure-all that has the unexpected side-effect of causing death three years later. A special force of agents is assembled to take on the malevolent Skinner.

“As I embark on this creative journey, I can’t help but feel that this project will serve as a culmination of my career so far,” said Watanabe in a statement accompanying the announcement. “I hope you enjoy it.”

“Shinichirō Watanabe is simply one of the greatest living artists, and it’s a dream come true to be able to collaborate with him on a new original series,” said Jason DeMarco, SVP and head of anime and action series at Adult Swim. “Like all of his work, ‘Lazarus’ is packed with big ideas, incredible characters and a ton of heart. We can’t wait for anime fans to see this world.”

No release plans have been disclosed.

I think that Rick and Morty anime could be fun.

There’s so many possibilities in the show’s universe already, this is just another way of exploring that.

Official Synopsis
Kaoru Tono heard a rumor: The laws of space and time mean nothing to the Urashima Tunnel. If you find it, walk through and you'll find your heart's desire on the other side...in exchange for years of your own life. One night, Kaoru just so happens to find himself standing in front of a tunnel that looks suspiciously like the one the rumor describes. He finds himself thinking of Karen, the sister he lost in an accident five years ago. To Kaoru's surprise, he's been followed by the new transfer student Anzu Hanashiro, who promises to help him experiment with the mysterious tunnel—but what does she want from Kaoru in exchange? And what will he have left to give, after the tunnel's done with him?
