Anime Limited Launch Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter

Anime Limited is happy to announce that we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign designed to bring Mai Mai Miracle, the beautiful animated film by Sunao Katabuchi, to UK and US audiences.

Wait, what? Why do need you a Kickstarter for doing what you should be doing anyway?

Frankly, this is what you’re all thinking isn’t it? It’s pretty simple actually – Mai Mai Miracle is a film we strongly feel deserves a wider, appreciative audience than it has received in the recent past. Coming at the hands of former Hayao Miyazaki protégé Sunao Katabuchi, Mai Mai Miracle is a sweet film that encapsulates the magic and imagination of two young girls in 1950s Japan.

One of our main mission statements with Anime Limited is to bring new, interesting, niche and not easily available anime to UK fans. We see the overlooked Mai Mai Miracle as one of these niche animated gems that need to be watched. However, we don’t just intend to release this film on blu-ray – we want to give you so much more than a blu-ray disc. We want to give you all sorts of goodies, the kind of beautiful packaging it deserves and we want to open up and bring this film to the US too!

Therein lies the difficulty – we’re a small, independent company from the UK thus making it very tricky/expensive/difficult to distribute a film like Mai Mai Miracle in the US. We would have to throw insane levels of cash at this or in the very least, sublicense the film – which in itself is difficult/tricky/expensive to do with a title that doesn’t have the heavy-hitting cache of a huge studio behind it. So we figure: hey! Why not take it straight to the fans, cut out the middleman and make this as special a release as possible? So that’s what we’re doing.

With this Kickstarter campaign, we hope to raise $30,000 (US) to do the following:
  • Release Mai Mai Miracle in both the UK and the US on blu-ray
  • Create and add English subtitles for the film
  • Produce quality packaging to house the blu-ray disc and make it Collector’s Edition worthy
  • Share some of the truly beautiful artwork, illustrations and behind-the-scenes goodness that comes with the making of such an animated film
We view this Kickstarter campaign as the best way to bring in and widely distribute a small, charming film that should be enjoyed by as many people as possible. And to say thank you for any help, support and love we will give you as much bang for your buck as possible.

So here’s your chance to support something sweet, unique and magical. We love this film and we hope you will too.

Mai Mai Miracle

Mai Mai Miracle is the story of two young girls, their friendship and their unique magical take on the world around them – a view that is only possible in the minds and imaginations of children. When a young girl named Kiiko moves to a small country town, she befriends Shinko, a bright, imaginative girl who has a special way of viewing the world around her and connecting it to the region’s past. With Shinko’s lead, Kiiko follows her on numerous adventures of imagination and time travel finally breaking free of her shell and learning to let go of the grief she carries for her deceased mother.

Mai Mai Miracle does a great job of converting that magic into art in a way that is unique to the film which very much adds to the overall feel of the story. It is a joy to behold and a great film for kids and adults alike. If this sounds like something you’d love to see, or you would like more information and details on the Kickstarter campaign please pledge on our page!

“LOVE, CHUNIBYO AND OTHER DELUSIONS! -HEART THROB-”

HOUSTON, February 4, 2014 - The Chuni-versal language of love is about to get re-written in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions! -Heart Throb-. This direct follow up to the wildly popular first season is directed by Tatsuya Ishihara (CLANNAD, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), with series composition by Jukki Hanada (Rozen Maiden series, Special A), art direction by Mutsuo Shinohara (CLANNAD~After Story~, Kanon) and animation production by acclaimed Kyoto Animation (K-ON!, Beyond the Boundary).

Yuta Togashi thought he had problems dealing with one delusional girlfriend in the person of Rikka Takanashi, but now things are about to go totally insane as his FORMER “one true soul mate” from when he was a chuni himself returns… with a vengeance! So how bad is Satone Shichimiya’s re-entry into Yuta’s Chuni-verse likely to be? Let’s just say that she’s so epically off the deep end of the Chuni-scale that she prefers to use the name Sophia Ring SP Saturn VII and that she’ll joyfully tear Yuta’s real world to pieces in order to get him back in her imaginary one! Some girls just want to have fun and some want to break down the walls between their boyfriends and themselves, but when a girl’s idea of fun is breaking down the wall between their presumed boyfriend and reality, retreating into a fantasy world might just be Yuta’s best option. Especially since Satone knows where ALL the skeletons from his past are buried. Toss Rikka’s equally delusional friend Dekomori into the mix and girl crazy takes on a whole new meaning in LOVE, CHUNIBYO AND OTHER DELUSIONS! -HEART THROB-!

Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions! -Heart Throb- will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

Additional Rights Acquired for Date A Live, Red Data Girl, Karneval, and Code:Breaker
Posted by Michelle on 02/21/2014 at 9:00am

Flower Mound, TX (Feb. 21, 2014) – FUNimation announced today that they have acquired the home video rights to the following anime series: Date A Live, Red Data Girl, Karneval, and Code:Breaker. Please see below for additional information on each title.

---

From the studio that brought you Cat Planet Cuties and the director of Jormungand comes a hilarious new series. Watch what happens when dating sims and reality shows collide in Date A Live.

Date A Live synopsis:
30 years ago, a disaster known as a spacequake obliterated the center of Eurasia without warning, leaving 150 million corpses in its wake. Ever since that day, mankind has lived in constant fear of the spontaneously recurring spacequakes.

One day, an ordinary high school boy named Shido Itsuka discovers a mysterious girl at ground zero of a recent spacequake. Shido learns, through the help of his sister Kotori, that the girl is one of the Spirits: mystical creatures responsible for the genesis of the spacequakes. As captain of the anti-Spirit airship Ratatoskr, Kotori recruits Shido to help “seal” the sprits, thus ending their threat to mankind.

There’s just one catch: the only way to seal a spirit – is to make her fall in love with you.

Date A Live will be available in June 2014. Catch up on episodes on http://funimation.com/date-a-live

---

From P.A.Works, the studio behind such beautifully rendered works as Hanasaku Iroha and Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea, comes a series where stunning animation and raw emotional power take center stage. See why Anime News Network calls Red Data Girl “one of the year’s best series.”

Red Data Girl synopsis:

Izumiko is a fifteen year old outcast who was raised inseclusion at an ancient shrine hidden deep within the forest. This mysterious teenager destroys any electrical device she attempts to use, and her painful shyness has left her with few, if any, friends. Her world begins to evolve after enrolling in Houjou Academy, a school home to students of supernatural origins. Accompanied by her fated guardian, the brooding monk-in-training Miyuki, Izumiko soon discovers the shocking truth about herself: she is a vessel for the spirt of a powerful and vengeful goddess from a time long since passed. As her bond with Miyuki growns stronger, the spirit lurking within Izumiko begins to awaken. Can this fragile beauty learn to control her newfound power– or will the secret she carries make her the enemy of all mankind?

Red Data Girl will be available on DVD in June 2014. Catch up on the series on http://funimation.com/red-data-girl

---

Based on the manga by Touya Mikanagi and from the studio behind such hits as Deadman Wonderland, Michiko & Hatchin, and the Sacred Blacksmith. Karneval isa dark, twisted sideshow feature that blurs the line between fairy tale and nightmare.

Karneval synopsis:

Armed with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue, Nai searches for someone dear to him. After a run in with a pick-pocket named Gareki, the two find themselves involved in a government set-up that leaves them wanted criminals. Desperate and on-the-run, Nai and Gareki turn to the country’s most powerful defense organization – “Circus” – for help.

Karneval will be available in June 2014. Watch episodes on http://funimation.com/karneval

---

From the director of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and the studio behind .hack//Quantum.

Code:Breaker synopsis:

Sakura’s normal day is interrupted by a shocking sight: people burning alive in a blue fire – even as one nearby boy remains unharmed by the flames. When Sakura meets the boy, Rei, at school, she learns he’s no simple transfer student. He’s also a Code:Breaker, a government assassin with strange powers. Troubled by Rei’s deadly secret, Sakura sets out to show him the importance of life.

Code:Breaker will be available on BD/DVD Combo in June 2014. Check out episodes on http://funimation.com/codebreaker

“MAOYU – ARCHENEMY & HERO”

HOUSTON, February 25, 2014 – Even a guy named Hero will need a little help to save the world in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Maoyu – Archenemy & Hero. This romantic underworld comedy from the mind of Mamare Touno (LOG HORIZON) is directed by Takeo Takahashi (So I Can’t Play H, Spice and Wolf) with series composition by Naruhisa Arakawa (Outbreak Company, UPOTTE!!), music by Takeshi Hama (Kobato), and animation production by Arms Corporation (SAMURAI GIRLS, Wizard Barristers). Names can be deceiving, something the warrior known as Hero quickly discovers when he storms the castle of the dread Demon King that mankind has fought for 15 years. For one thing, the “King” turns out to be a Queen! Even more shocking, though, is that she’s been waiting for him with a very unexpected proposal. It would be bad for BOTH sides if the war was to end immediately, she points out, as without a common enemy, the individual factions of the winning side are certain to turn on each other in a new series of civil wars. However, she has a plan to end the wars, bring democracy and advanced knowledge to the humans, and ensure lasting prosperity for both sides, no matter who “wins.” But to accomplish this, she needs a collaborator on the human side, and she’s chosen Hero as the one partner she can trust! Is it a deal with the devil, or mankind’s only hope for lasting peace? The traditional rules of Swords and Sorcery are completely rewritten as the “good guy” and the “bad girl” join forces to save the world in MAOYU – ARCHENEMY & HERO!

Maoyu – Archenemy & Hero will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

From the creator of AKIRA, Short Peace is set for theatrical release in North America

Los Angeles, California, February 26, 2014 – ELEVEN ARTS and Sentai Filmworks is set to bring SHORT PEACE, a new omnibus film from Akira’s director, Katsuhiro Otomo to North American audiences.

In 1995, Katsuhiro Otomo’s epic anthology MEMORIES showcased the work of upcoming superstars of the anime world. Now, Otomo’s spotlight shifts to a fresh generation of visionaries with an all-new anthology of creative films: A lone traveler is confronted by unusual spirits in an abandoned shrine in the 2013 Academy Award® nominated POSSESSIONS (TSUKUMO), directed by Shuhei Morita (COICENT, KAKURENBO). A mysterious white bear defends the royal family from the predations of a red demon in the brutal GAMBO, adapted from REDLINE’s Katsuhito Ishii’s original story, and directed by Hiroaki Ando (FIVE NUMBERS!) with character designs by Yohiyuki Sadamoto (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION). The focus shifts from supernatural to science fiction for the action packed A FAREWELL TO ARMS (BUKI YO SARABA), as MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM designer Hajime Katoki helms Otomo’s tour- de-force saga of men battling robotic tanks in apocalyptic Tokyo. Grandmaster Otomo himself assumes the directorial reigns for a spectacular tale of love, honor and firefighting in ancient Japan with the multi-award winning COMBUSTIBLE (HI-NO-YOUJIN). Prepare your senses for these animated films that are taking the critical world by storm, and watch as a new era in anime is ushered in with Katsuhiro Otomo’s SHORT PEACE!

Thrilled to release 'The Tale of The Princess Kaguya' from @ghibli_intl in N. America! Join https://www.facebook.com/ThePrincessKaguya for official updates.
http://www.cartoonbrew.com/feature-f...ion-97230.html
GKIDS Acquires Takahata’s ‘The Tale of The Princess Kaguya’ for U.S. Distribution

GKIDS announced today that they have entered into a distribution agreement with Studio Ghibli for the North American rights to The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, the new film by 78-year-old director and Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies, Only Yesterday, Pom Poko).

GKIDS will take all of Kaguya’s theatrical, non-theatrical, home video and television rights in North America. Last year GKIDS distributed Ghibli’s From Up on Poppy Hill, which became the distributor’s first million-dollar grossing animated feature.

Studio Ghibli is producing an English-language vesrion of the film. Ghibli’s Geoffrey Wexler will produce, with Frank Marshall of Kennedy/Marshall exec producing. This is the same team that handled English versions for the two previous Studio Ghibli films, The Wind Rises and From Up on Poppy Hill.

Kaguya, which is based on the folktake “Tale of the Bamboo Cutter,” has been a modest success in its home country of Japan, grossing $22.7 million to date (or less than a fifth of the box office gross of Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises). The film will be released in the U.S. this fall and will be submitted for Oscar qualification.

“PROBLEM CHILDREN ARE COMING
FROM ANOTHER WORLD, AREN’T THEY?”

HOUSTON, March 19, 2014 – The battle for supremacy will be anything but fun and games in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they? This otherworldly action comedy series is directed by Keizou Kusakawa (Campione, Ro-Kyu-Bu!) with series composition by Noboru Kimura (Amagami SS, Motto To Love Ru), music by Shiro Hamaguchi (Girls und Panzer), and animation production from diomedea inc. (Polyphonica Crimson S, Squid Girl). On the world known as Little Garden, factions and communities compete for power via Gift Games, in which individuals with unusual abilities are set against each other. But where there are winners, there are also losers, and the group called the “No Names” has been so devastated in their conflicts with the Demon Lords that almost all of their 120 remaining members are still children! For surviving leaders Jin and Black Rabbit there seems to be only one hope: Bring in outside recruits and gamble that their new abilities will somehow reverse the tide! Of course, Earthborn Izayoi, Asuka, and Yo don’t know any of this when they accept the invitation to come to Little Garden, nor do they know how dangerous the games actually are. Fortunately, all three are far more formidable than anyone can imagine, but before they can win the games, they’ll have to learn how to work together and with the other No Names… and the time they have to do that in is rapidly running out! Supernatural and fantasy collide as the ultimate battle for power begins in Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?

Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they? will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

Once the discount stickers go on, ravenous brawlers start throwing punches in a knockdown, drag-out war over who gets to take home the cheap eats. When a young, broke high school student named Sato joins the Half-Priced Food Lovers Club, he proves to be a rising talent in the world of insane food fights. But does he have what it takes to become the king of clearance cuisine? From the director of Black Cat comes a very different type of hunger games. Welcome to the world of Ben-To, where chopsticks are lethal weapons, the supermarket is a battleground, and there’s nothing more delicious than a deep-fried win.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

http://www.funimation.com/blog/2014/...-anime-boston/
Flower Mound, TX (March 22, 2014) – FUNimation Entertainment announced today at their Anime Boston Industry Panel that they have acquired the home video rights to A Certain Scientific Railgun S. The series will release on DVD in two parts this summer.

series synopsis:

Something sinister is growing in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of a project to clone one of the super-powered students known as espers. High-ranking master of electricity Mikoto Misaka laughs off these stories until she comes face to face with a copy of herself. The duplicates are real, and are being mass-produced from Misaka’s DNA, making each one of them a little piece of her.

These clones—her sisters—are being systematically murdered in a series of experiments designed to turn a sadistic killer into the strongest esper in history. Misaka vows to save her copies and destroy the project, but this might be one fight she can’t win alone. High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of the Railgun series from the creator of A Certain Magical Index.

“HAIKYUU!!”

HOUSTON, March 25, 2014 – Get set for the next volley as fierce rivals take their fight to the courts in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, HAIKYUU!!. This high speed slice of life sports series from original creator Haruichi Furudate is directed by Susumu Mitsunaka (Cuticle Detective Inaba, Bunny Drop) with series composition by Taku Kishimoto (Silver Spoon, Tales from Earthsea), character designs by Takahiro Kishida (BTOOOM!, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) and animation production by Production I.G (Ghost Hound, Kuroko’s Basketball).

Shoyo Hinata may be a small guy, but he’s got big ambitions. Ever since he saw a short-statured volleyball pro dominate the scoreboards in the National Championship, he’s been determined to become the next big thing in High School Volleyball. Unfortunately, he’s barely played the game. The only time he was able to assemble enough players to form a team was in junior high, when the team suffered a crushing defeat in their first and only match against a team lead by up-and-coming setter Tobio Kageyama. Now, as his first year of high school begins, Shoyo’s finally getting the chance to join a real club and play with a real team. There’s just one problem: Tobio Kageyama’s decided to attend the same school, and he’s established a reputation as being one of the best players in the game. Can this small fry hold his own against the King of the Court? Or could the rivalry and competition actually be the best thing for both of them? Get ready for a knock down, throw down, ultimate show down barrage of volleys, spikes, and blocks as Shoyo leaps for the glory and Kageyama aims for the stars in HAIKYUU!!

HAIKYUU!! will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

“THE KAWAI COMPLEX GUIDE
TO MANORS AND HOSTEL BEHAVIOR”

HOUSTON, March 26, 2014 – A quiet life alone has some advantages, but Usa may never find out what those are in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior. This romantic slice of life comedy from original creator Ruri Miyahara (Love Lab) is directed by Shigeyuki Miya (Blood Lad, Supernatural: The Anime Series) with series composition by Takeshi Konuta (Ace of Diamond, Library Wars), music by Akito Matsuda (D-Fregments, Dog & Scissors), and animation production by Brains Base (Kamichu!, Natsume’s Book of Friends).

Living away from home can have its perks, especially when you're just a kid: no parents, no rules, no curfew! Add the fact that you just – miraculously - moved in right next to the girl of your dreams and it sounds too good to be true. Naturally, things that sound too good to be true usually are. Kazunari Usa’s independence arrives by way of his parents' new job placement. However, with this newfound freedom come the shackles of responsibility, and his hopes and dreams are soon dashed when confronted with the indecent behavior of his lecherous neighbor, Shirosaki. Usa promised he wouldn’t complain if he could just live on his own... he just didn’t expect so much drama. Not only do Usa and his dream-girl Ritsu attend the same school, but Ritsu’s grandaunt, the landlady Sumiko, tries to give Usa weird relationship advice regarding the two. To top it all off, everything is upended when Usa meets Mayumi, an older, flirty woman that he runs into on the street. Will Usa’s fantasy of a normal life ever become a reality? Stay tuned to find out in THE KAWAI COMPLEX GUIDE TO MANORS AND HOSTEL BEHAVIOR!

The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

“ONE WEEK FRIENDS”


HOUSTON, March 27, 2014 – Can a truly unforgettable friendship really be formed in only seven days? In Yuki’s case, it’s going to have to be in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, One Week Friends. This comedic high school drama from original creator Matcha Hazuki is directed by Tarou Iwasaki (Sunday Without God, Another), with series composition by Shotaro Suga (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, The Eccentric Family), art direction by Akira Ito (Bodacious Space Pirates, AKB0048), and animation production by Brains Base (Penguindrum, Amnesia).

It is said that one of the qualities of a true friendship is to understand and be understood. Unfortunately, this can be easier said than done, particularly when it comes to being friends with someone that has no recollection of being your friend the week after befriending them. To become friends over and over, again and again… that is the goal of Yuki Hase when approaching schoolmate Kaori Fujimaya. You see, things aren’t so simple when your memory disappears. And that’s exactly what happens with Kaori – she’s always alone because she can’t commit anything to memory, even if that commitment is as special as a memory of one of her friends. No matter how cherished her memories are, they vanish by the time Monday rolls around. But Yuki won’t give up in the fight for friendship as he embarks on a new mission every week to befriend a person he already knows. In this friendship, everything that’s old is new again in ONE WEEK FRIENDS!

One Week Friends[/B] will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

“LOVE LAB”

HOUSTON, April 15, 2014 – A new kind of class is in session, and the matters of love are on the agenda in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Love Lab. From original creator Ruri Miyahara, this heartwarming junior high school comedy series is directed by Masahiko Ohta (Minami-ke, Brighter than the Dawning Blue) with series composition by Takashi Aoshima (Mitsudomoe, Yuruyuri – Happy go Lily), music by Yasuhiro Misawa (Kokoro Connect, La storia della Arcana Famiglia), and animation production by Dogakobo (Engaged to the Unidentified, Majestic Prince).

Perhaps it was from the shock of discovering her school’s most respected girl kissing a life-size huggie doll, but in those first awkward moments Riko Kurahashi said something she wishes she hadn’t. Because not only did student council president Natsuo Maki completely swallow Riko’s glib fib about being “popular with the boys,” she drafted Riko as her aide and advisor in love and romance! That would have been bad enough if Natsuo only wanted advice, but Fujisaki Girls Academy’s most brilliant student is also the most obsessive, and simply talking about the opposite sex isn’t sufficient. No, Natsuo postulates hypothetical scenarios and “researches” them in her secret Love Lab! And since interaction with boys is banned at Fujisaki, guess who has to help act those fantasies out? And as other girls join the Love Lab, Riko’s role as the group’s love-master becomes even worse! Because she ISN’T one! Most boys don’t even LIKE her, but how can she admit that without destroying the friendships she now cherishes? Exposure looms and each new “experiment” brings Riko one step closer to total disaster as Love and Deception combine into the ultimate explosive mixture in the LOVE LAB!

Love Lab will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

“KAMIGAMI NO ASOBI”

HOUSTON, April 16, 2014 – A young girl is given the herculean task of strengthening the bonds between humans and gods by Zeus himself in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Kamigami no Asobi. This supernatural romance series is directed by Tomoyuki Kawamura (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Good Luck Girl!) with series composition by Tomoko Kanparu (Kimi ni Todoke – From Me to You, NANA), character design by Minako Shiba (Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee, Black Butler) and animation production by Brains Base (One Week Friends, Penguindrum).

The question of who weaves our destiny has always been shrouded in mystery. However, in a twist of fate,Yui Kusanagi discovers a mighty and mysterious sword that transports her to another world. There, this ordinary high school girl finds herself face-to-face with the mighty Greek god Zeus. As her fortune would have it, The God of Thunder has an unusual request: remain in the dimension he has created and attend a school of legendary proportions. When he’s not busy ruling the universe, Zeus acts as headmaster and dean for a school of young, somewhat misguided gods. The bond between humans and gods has weakened, and it is now up to Yui to teach the gods about love and what it means to be human. Will the dice of fortune fall in her favor? Or will the pressure of being a modern-day Venus be too much to handle? Only time will tell what happens as her fate unfolds before her. Whatever the outcome, bring on the bishounen as Yui tries to reveal who her true destiny is tied to in KAMIGAMI NO ASOBI!

Kamigami no Asobi will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

Hal -- Official Trailer (English subtitles)
Published on Apr 16, 2014

Click here for more details: http://funi.to/1hJuxwb
An artificial love story.
Hal: A new anime film from the studio that brought you Attack on Titan, coming to Blu-ray and DVD this fall.

From the studio behind Attack on Titan comes the directorial debut of a bold, new voice in the world of anime.

Kurumi's heart was broken by the sudden death of her boyfriend in a tragic airplane accident. Forced to carry on without her beloved Hal, she fell into a reclusive and joyless existence. Kurumi had given up on the world, but a brilliant scientist devised a plan to win her back. By melding futuristic technology with the binary equivalent of human emotion, they created an ultra-lifelike robotic surrogate to take Hal's place -- and lure Kurumi from her shroud of solitude. Resistant at first, this shattered beauty slowly yielded to her feelings of longing -- and took comfort in the company of a robot. Though their unique bond grew stronger with each passing day, Kurumi and Hal would soon discover that nothing about their artificial love story was quite as it seemed.
