FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VIZ MEDIA AND TOEI ANIMATION ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS FOR THE MAZINGER Z: INFINITY FEATURE FILM

Based On The Legendary Mazinger Z Sci-Fi Series, Feature Film Will Debut In U.S. Movie Theaters In February 2018

San Francisco, CA, January 12, 2018 - Toei Animation Inc. and VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, have jointly announced the acquisition of the MAZINGER Z: INFINITY feature film.

MAZINGER Z is one of Japan's most revered sci-fi properties. The new film, which was produced by Toei Animation, takes place ten years after the conclusion of the famed Mazinger Z TV series. VIZ Media has secured the theatrical, broadcast, digital streaming, EST, and home video rights for the U.S. and Canada from Toei Animation.

In addition, in partnership with Fathom Events, MAZINGER Z: INFINITY will receive a special two-night-only presentation across the U.S. on Sunday, February 11 and Monday, February 12 (English-subtitled both dates). Attendees will also receive an exclusive MAZINGER Z: INFINITY poster (while supplies last). For a complete listing of participating theaters and to purchase tickets, please visit www.FathomEvents.com/events/mazinger-z-infinity.

The MAZINGER Z: INFINITY movie is based on the classic manga series by the immutable creator, Go Nagai. It follows our hero, Koji Kabuto, in an action-packed adventure where only he can choose his ultimate path! Ten years ago, the villainous scientist Dr. Hell led his wicked followers, known as the Underground Empire, in a struggle to destroy all of humanity. It was against these forces that the young hero Koji Kabuto fought, piloting the legendary super robot 'Mazinger Z." Koji's victory stopped Dr. Hell's evil plan and returned peace to the Earth. Now Koji has left the pilot seat behind and become a scientist in his own right, following in his father's and grandfather's footsteps. Yet an unexpected encounter deep under Mt. Fuji triggers an even greater threat to mankind than ever before and alters Koji's destiny forever. With humanity's fate in their hands, Koji and Mazinger Z face a choice between good…and evil.

'MAZINGER Z is one of Japan's most celebrated sci-fi properties and is an instantly recognizable icon of the super robot genre," says Masayuki Endo, Toei Animation Inc.'s President & CEO. 'We are very pleased to work so closely with VIZ Media to bring this exciting new anime movie to fans across North America."

'Fathom is thrilled to partner with VIZ Media to bring this well-loved franchise to cinema audiences across the U.S." Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. 'Our anime events continue to fill auditoriums with excited fans and we know MAZINGER Z: INFINITY will do the same."

'MAZINGER Z is a groundbreaking property that has helped to define the super robot and mecha genres for over four decades," says Charlene Ingram, VIZ Media's Director of Animation Marketing. 'The new film is a fitting testament to the enduring popularity of the franchise as well as the iconic works of Go Nagai. We look forward announcing details on the theatrical premiere in the very near future."

GKIDS ACQUIRES NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS TO MIRAI

FROM ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR MAMORU HOSODA

THEATRICAL RELEASE SET FOR FALL 2018

New York, NY (February 16, 2018) - GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced it has acquired the North American distribution rights for the animated feature MIRAI from Japan's Studio Chizu. The film is written and helmed by Mamoru Hosoda, the celebrated director behind The Boy and the Beast, Wolf Children, Summer Wars, and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. GKIDS will release the film theatrically this fall in both its original Japanese language and a new English dubbed version.

MIRAI follows a young boy named Kun who feels forgotten by his family when his little sister Mirai arrives. Running away from home, Kun stumbles upon a magical garden that serves as time-travelling gateway where he encounters his mother as a little girl and has a series of adventures with his baby sister all grown up, opening up a new perspective on his world.

The all-rights deal was negotiated by Eric Beckman of GKIDS and Yohann Comte and Carole Baraton of Charades.

"GKIDS is both thrilled and honored to be releasing the newest film from the great Mamoru Hosoda, a true master and one of the most exciting, iconic, and humanist filmmakers working in animation," said Eric Beckman, Founder/CEO of GKIDS. "His previous films The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, Wolf Children, and The Boy and the Beast rank among my favorite animated films of all time and everyone at GKIDS is so excited to be working together with Studio Chizu and Charades on this project!"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

'A Spirit of the Sun' Will Shine as Maiden Japan’s New Acquisition


HOUSTON TX, February 19, 2018 – February brings the addition of A Spirit of the Sun to Maiden Japan’s ever-growing collection of anime titles. Based on the epic manga by Kaiji Kawaguchi and directed by Masayuki Kojima, the acclaimed director of titles like Monster, Made in Abyss and Black Bullet, the feature film explores a frighteningly possible world in which a series of natural disasters force the Japanese people to flee their homeland.

When Japan is hit by the twin disasters of the eruption of Mt. Fuji and a massive earthquake, the island nation gets literally shattered and torn in two. With millions dead and the life-sustaining national infrastructure destroyed, mass evacuation of much of the country’s population was the only alternative. Now the Japanese refugees living in Taiwan find themselves in conflict with the native citizens. There’s not enough work, the living conditions are terrible, and what remains of Japan is occupied by China in the north and the U.S. in the south. Genichiro Ryu is just one of the survivors, but having been adopted by Taiwanese parents, he has a foot in both worlds and seeks to find a way to bring peace between the conflicting sides in A Spirit of the Sun.

A Spirit of the Sun comes from Madhouse, the studio behind titles like Death Note, No Game No Life and High School of the Death. It was produced by the Tohokushinsha Film Corporation (Garo, Zankyou no Terror, Usagi Drop, Redline).

Update on the Marmalade Boy SDBD. We decided to delay it to do some more testing to make sure it's compatible on as many BD players as possible. New date will be determined as soon as possible and announced here.
