The Media Pioneers Secures Distribution Rights For "Go Astro Boy Go!"

London, 03 April 2024: UK kids' content and feature film distributor, The Media Pioneers (TMP) has struck a deal with renowned Japanese producer Tezuka Productions for the action-adventure, comedy series Go Astro Boy Go!

The deal sees TMP acquire the distribution rights for North America and Europe (excluding France) for the digital 2D animation series targeted at 4- to 7-year-olds. Go Astro Boy Go! (52 x 13') follows the captivating adventures of Astro Boy as he travels the globe combating disasters and thwarting crimes.

Drawing inspiration from the original and much-loved 1963 animated TV series ‘Astro Boy’, the latest adaptation continues the legacy of Osamu Tezuka's iconic manga collection. Garnering over 2.64 billion USD of the worldwide sales for related products, ‘Astro Boy’ became a global sensation, especially in Japan and France, and in the U.S. where it was the first anime to be aired. It remains one of the best-selling manga series of all time and is the most recognizable superhero in Tezuka's work.

Commenting on the acquisition Maggie Liang, Managing Director of The Media Pioneers said, “We are thrilled to have Go Astro Boy Go! in our catalogue. This IP is an iconic brand that has garnered global recognition and influence across generations. TMP is honoured to expand the reach of this much-loved brand to more families and kids in Europe and North America."

Astro Boy, the most advanced AI with a human boy appearance sets out to solve the planet's most pressing issue. Joining him on his journey are teammates Astro Kitty, a kitten-like AI, and Suzu, a super intelligent human girl.

It's the welfare of the planet that's at stake. The issues troubling it and its inhabitants are real. Astro Boy is on a mission to help anyone anywhere in the world with a problem involving natural phenomena. It may be a conflict between different species, or an environmental crisis / ecological concern due to human activity, or a naturally occurring phenomenon like the thermal convection that generates a typhoon. Whatever the trouble - be it man-made or natural - our heroes evaluate it and respond to it in superhero style.

GKIDS Acquires Theatrical Rights to Renowned Director Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence

GKIDS, the Academy Award®-winning producer and distributor of acclaimed and artist-driven animation from around the world, announced today it has acquired the theatrical distribution rights for North America to Mamoru Oshii’s animated masterpiece GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE. In celebration of the film’s 20th anniversary, GKIDS will release an all new 4K restoration of the film in cinemas nationwide this summer. Prior to the film’s nationwide release, the new 4K restoration will premiere this May at the Chicago Critics Film Festival, held at the historic Music Box Theatre.

First released in 2004, the film is director Oshii’s follow up to his epoch-making 1995 feature Ghost in the Shell, based on the comic series created by Shirow Masamune. Imagined as a standalone return to the world of Ghost in the Shell, the story is a cyberpunk mystery centered on the character Batou from the original film. Like with the 1995 Ghost in the Shell, GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE has been lavishly crafted by legendary animation powerhouse Production I.G, and features a powerful and haunting score by returning composer Kenji Kawai. The film is produced by Production I.G co-founder Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, producer of the original 1995 feature, who is joined by Academy Award®-winning producer and Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki. Featuring mind-bending visuals that demanded five years in production, GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE celebrated its international debut in competition at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, thus becoming the first and only anime in history to compete for the Palme d’Or.

The deal was negotiated between Rodney Uhler of GKIDS and Francesco Prandoni of Production I.G, marking yet another collaboration between the two companies. The studio’s features A Letter to Momo (2011), Giovanni’s Island (2014), Miss Hokusai (2015), and The Deer King (2021), are also distributed by GKIDS.

“We’re honored to be working with the team at Production I.G in bringing this visionary film, from a true auteur, to theatrical audiences in North America,” said GKIDS Director of Acquisitions and Development Rodney Uhler. “Mamoru Oshii was and remains, in many ways, a filmmaker ahead of his time so we’re thrilled to be able to share his film, with a beautiful, 4K remaster, with new and old audiences alike.”

GKIDS is proud to announce the acquisition of N. American theatrical rights to Mamoru Oshii’s GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE.

A new 4K restoration will premiere at the Chicago Critic’s Film Festival followed by a nationwide release this summer.

THE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW FEATURE FROM ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR NAOKO YAMADA (“A SILENT VOICE”) SCIENCE SARU (“SCOTT PILGRIM TAKES OFF”) AND PRODUCER GENKI KAWAMURA (“YOUR NAME.”)

CHARADES TO HANDLE SALES FOR SELECT TERRITORIES

FILM TO WORLD PREMIERE IN COMPETITION AT 2024 ANNECY INTERNATIONAL ANIMATED FILM FESTIVAL

GKIDS, the Academy Award®-winning producer and distributor of acclaimed and artist-driven animation, and Anime Ltd., Europe’s leading boutique animation distributor specializing in original story film, have announced a multi-territory acquisition of THE COLORS WITHIN (KIMINOIRO), the new film from award-winning director Naoko Yamada. GKIDS has acquired the film for North America, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand, while Anime Ltd. has acquired the film for the United Kingdom, Ireland, and all of Europe. PLAION PICTURES will handle Italian and German speaking territories. GKIDS and Anime Ltd. have engaged Charades to manage sales for the rest of Europe, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand.

The distributors along with animation studio Science SARU and producers Story inc. revealed the new film’s official English language title as THE COLORS WITHIN.

It was announced today that the film will have its world premiere in competition at the prestigious 2024 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. GKIDS and Anime Ltd. will theatrically release the film in both its original Japanese language and a new English dubbed version this winter, and GKIDS will qualify the film for 2024-25 awards consideration. The film will be domestically released in Japan on August 30th.

SYNOPSIS: Totsuko is a high school student with the ability to see the ‘colors’ of others. Colors of bliss, excitement, and serenity, plus a color she treasures as her favorite. Kimi, a classmate at her school, gives off the most beautiful color of all. Although she doesn’t play an instrument, Totsuko forms a band with Kimi and Rui, a quiet music enthusiast they meet at a used bookstore in a far corner of town. As they practice at an old church on a remote island, music brings them together, forming friendships and stirring affections. Will they discover their true ‘colors’?

THE COLORS WITHIN is directed by the acclaimed filmmaker Naoko Yamada (A Silent Voice, Liz and the Blue Bird, “The Heike Story”), with production from studio Science SARU (“Scott Pilgrim Takes Off,” Inu-Oh, “The Heike Story”). Producer Genki Kawamura’s Story inc. (Your Name., Weathering With You, Suzume), is additionally attached to the film for planning and producing. Screenwriter Reiko Yoshida (Ride Your Wave, “Violet Evergarden”) penned the script, and longtime Science SARU collaborator kensuke ushio (“DEVILMAN crybaby,” “Chainsaw Man,” A Silent Voice) composed the score. Frequent Science SARU collaborator Takashi Kojima, who most recently worked with director Yamada on “The Heike Story,” joined the production as character designer and animation director.

Director Yamada worked s a key animator on many seminal television series, such as “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya,” “Lucky Star,” and “Clannad.” She went on to direct the beloved show “K-On!” and its sequel, as well as the critically acclaimed animated features A Silent Voice and Liz and the Blue Bird. In 2021, Yamada directed “The Heike Story,” her first work at studio Science SARU, which also debuted to wide acclaim.

GKIDS and ANIME LTD. have worked together on many of the top anime titles of the past several years, with GKIDS taking North America and Anime Ltd. taking UK and additional territories. Films the two companies have both handled include BELLE, EVANGELION:3.0+1.11 THRICE UPON A TIME, The First Slam Dunk, the Golden Globe®-nominated Inu-Oh, the Academy Award®-nominated Mirai, Weathering With You, and many more. This marks the first time the two companies have partnered on a global acquisition.

“We have long admired Naoko Yamada and her ability to create dazzling, emotional stories out of the everyday concerns of teenagers,” said GKIDS president David Jesteadt. “The Colors Within is her most beautiful film yet, and we are proud to partner with our friends at Anime Ltd. on another soon to be classic from Science SARU and Story Inc., who are responsible for some of the best anime productions of this new century.”

“The partnership and coordination on the international release of The Colors Within signals a new approach to film promotion: working together on a singular global vision whilst utilizing our respective local experience to maximize the impact of the film. Working in unison like this allows all of us to provide the best possible support for talented directorial voices,” said Anime Ltd. CEO Andrew Partridge. ”On a personal level, I’ve worked closely with promoting Naoko Yamada’s films before I even founded Anime Ltd. – starting with her debut feature film as a part of Scotland Loves Anime. So it’s a real pleasure to be bringing her latest work to as wide an audience as possible in Europe.”

Mamoru Oshii To Oversee 4K Remastering Of 1985 Animation ‘Angel’s Egg’ As Gebeka Int’l Lines Up Cannes Sales Launch

EXCLUSIVE: Animation-focused sales company Gebeka International has acquired world sales rights to an upcoming 4K remastered version of Japanese animation director Mamoru Oshii’s 1985 animated feature Angel’s Egg.

Oshii is best known internationally for 1995 breakout Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, which world premiered in Competition in Cannes in 2004, and the Patlabor sci-fi franchise.

Angel’s Egg was first released on video by Japanese publishing and media company Tokuma Shoten in 1985, and, with time, it has come to be regarded by anime fans as a masterpiece that holds keys to Oshii’s later works.

The surreal, allegorical work is set against the backdrop of an underwater city and revolves around a young girl who takes scrupulous care of a large egg in the belief it is an angel’s egg. When a boy with a gun arrives in search of a bird he saw in a dream, he appears initially to be sympathetic to her mission, but then, he crushes the precious object.

The feature is based on an original story by Oshii and artist Yoshitaka Amano, who is the artistic designer for the popular Final Fantasy franchise.

Oshii directed Angel’s Egg, while Amano was art director. The voice cast features late Japanese star Jinpachi Nezu and Mako Hyodo.

As the 40th anniversary of its release approaches, rights holder and producer Tokuma Shoten has gotten behind the remastering project, with Oshii supervising the scanning of the original 35mm film and remastering in 4K. The remastered version will be made available this year in 4K formats suitable for Dolby cinema, theatrical and home theatre.

“With Mamoru Oshii overseeing the 4K remastering of Angel’s Egg, viewers can expect to immerse themselves in a cinematic experience that transcends the boundaries of animation, delivering a visually stunning and emotionally resonant journey that defies conventional storytelling. We are thrilled to handle international sales and that the film will be given a new life worldwide,” said Gebeka International sales agent Jason Bressand.

France-based sales company Gebeka International was created as a joint venture between Goodfellas (former Wild Bunch International) and animation company Gebeka Films in 2021, with a focus on all types of animation from stop-motion to 3D.

Further upcoming titles on its slate include Liane-Cho Han and Mailys Vallade’s Little Amelie, Guillaume Ivernel’s The Legendaries and Savages by Claude Barras, the Oscar-nominated director My life as a Zucchini, which will world premiere as a Special Screening in Cannes.

Tokyo-based Tokuma Shoten was founded in 1954 and is one of Japan’s oldest publishing groups. It was the first Japanese publishing company to take a mixed media approach to produce films based on its books. For a time, it counted Studio Ghibli, Daiei Film, and record label Tokuma Japan Communications as part of its group.

More recently, Tokuma Shoten have enjoyed success with BL content and weekly webcomic Ryu, which features works such as Everyday Life with Monster Girls by Okayado, which has become an international bestseller, while its portfolio of modern literature authors includes Jiro Akagawa, Kyotaro Nishimura, Riku Onda, Maha Harada and Shion Miura.

HIDIVE UNSHEATHES "I PARRY EVERYTHING!" FOR BATTLE THIS SUMMER

North American Premiere Screening at Anime Expo 2024 on July 4

HOUSTON, TXMay 16, 2024 — Shonen fans can look forward to a summer of sword fights starting this July. AMC Networks' anime streaming service HIDIVE announced today that the new fantasy action adventure series I Parry Everything! (full title: I Parry Everything to Become the Greatest Adventure!) will stream exclusively as part of its Summer 2024 simulcast season. Based on the popular novels written by Nabeshiki, I Parry Everything! is the newest title in the slate of anime TV series acquired as part of Sentai Filmworks' (Sentai) multi-year agreement with Mainichi Broadcasting System (MBS) revealed in March 2023. Ahead of the series' July premiere, HIDIVE will host the North American premiere of I Parry Everything! Episodes 1 & 2 on July 4 at Anime Expo 2024 in Los Angeles, Calif.

"We're thrilled to offer fans MBS' new series I Parry Everything! as an exclusive simulcast series this summer," said John Ledford, President of HIDIVE. "This exciting fantasy action adventure series follows on the heels of My Instant Death Ability Is So Overpowered, the Winter 2024 hit series and most recent title acquired as part of Sentai's multi-year agreement with MBS. Fans will not want to miss I Parry Everything!"

The Kingdom of Clays faces a dire crisis: an assassination attempt has just been made on its own Princess Lynneburg, and now its neighboring countries eye the aftermath like starving vultures, plotting the Kingdom's downfall. The ensuing conflict will shape the face of the continent for centuries to come...but Noor doesn't have a clue about any of that! Having freshly arrived at the royal capital after over a decade of rigorous, isolated training at his mountain home, he's dead set on achieving his childhood dream of becoming an adventurer, even if the only skills he possesses are useless ones. Sure, Noor can "parry" thousands of swords in the span of a single breath, but everybody knows you need more than that if you want to be an adventurer! Our hero's road to making his dream come true will be long(?) and arduous(?)—but if there's one thing Noor's not afraid of, it's some good ol' fashioned hard work!

I Parry Everything! is adapted from the currently eight-volume-long Earth Star Novel series written by Nabeshiki and illustrated by Kawaguchi, which is based on the original 2019 web novel acquired by Earth Star Entertainment Separately, a manga series also written by Nabeshiki but illustrated by KRSG is published in Comic Earth Star. Both the light novel and manga series are available in English from J-Novel Club.

"PLUS-SIZED ELF" BRINGS EXTRA-LARGE LAUGHS TO HIDIVE THIS SUMMER

HOUSTON, TXMay 20, 2024 — Fans are in for an oversized summer of laughs with today's announcement that AMC Network's HIDIVE will stream the new comedy series Plus-Sized Elf as an exclusive simulcast during the anime streaming service's Summer 2024 season. Premiering in July, Plus-Sized Elf is based on the pair of popular seinen manga titles created by Synecdoche.

"We're excited to present the new series Plus-Sized Elf as part of our exclusive line-up of simulcasts this summer," said John Ledford, President of HIDIVE. "Without a doubt, fans can expect some extra-large laughs from what is sure to be a larger-than-life comedy. Get ready some fun!"

Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he's saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest—everything about her screams "elf," except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight—and keep it off?

Plus-Sized Elf is adapted from the original eight-volume-long (Plus-Sized Elf) and currently three-volume-long (Plus-Sized Elf: Second Helping!) manga titles created by Synecdoche which launched in December 2016 and October 2021, respectively. The current title is published in Dokodemo Young Champion by Akita Shoten. The English language versions of both titles are published by Seven Seas Entertainment. Plus-Sized Elf is directed by Toshikatsu Tokoro together with writing by Yuki Takabayashi and production by Elias.

Goddess Festival—A fruit festival that brings the labyrinth city of Orario to life. Goddesses symbolizing fertility are enshrined on the altar, and among them is the Goddess of Beauty. Bell Cranel, who has survived and returned to his daily life from the dead depths of the dungeon, is here and ready to enjoy the bustle of the Goddess Festival until he receives a letter from a girl at a small bar in a corner of Orario—"To Mr. Bell, please go on a date with just the two of us at the upcoming Goddess Festival. From Syr." Syr's single-minded determination will drive both Bell and the labyrinth city crazy. Meanwhile, the Einherjar, the warriors who claim to be the "strongest," are now suddenly on the move...
