Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

SANTA MONICA, CA (January 22, 2019) - Aniplex of America and Fathom Events have teamed up with the National Pancreas Foundation for the release of the anime film I want to eat your pancreas, which hits movie theaters nationwide on February 7 and 10. The heartwarming, coming-of-age film is based on Yoru Sumino's bestselling novel about two teenagers, an aloof bookworm and a bubbly high school girl who suffers from an unspecified terminal pancreatic illness. The film, which comes to over 400 movie theaters across the U.S. in February, will be accompanied with a pre-show which includes information on the pancreas as well as services provided by the National Pancreas Foundation in hopes of raising awareness on a not often talked about topic. The foundation's website states its mission as providing "hope for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer through funding cutting edge research, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals."

"We are thrilled to be working with the National Pancreas Foundation," says Shu Nishimoto, President of Aniplex of America. "Though the film doesn't specify the character's condition, the fact that she is only in high school and suffering a terminal pancreatic illness is not an implausible scenario, but a very real thing. We hope this film will help start much needed conversations about our health and inspire moviegoers to live their best lives as our heroine does."

"This trailer is a glimpse into the complex and multifaceted lives of those suffering from pancreatic disease," says Cecila Petricone, chronic pancreatitis patient and volunteer - the National Pancreas Foundation, "particularly highlighting the effects disease has on those who care for the sufferer."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Filmworks Primes the "The Price of Smiles"

HOUSTON, TX, January 27, 2019 - Sentai Filmworks announced today that it acquired The Price of Smiles for streaming as well as exclusive rights for home video, television, and transactional video on demand. The original series is produced by iconic anime studio, Tatsunoko Production (Speed Racer, Gatchaman) in celebration of their 55th anniversary. Sentai Filmworks will distribute the series in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Latin America, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.

On a world far removed from the Earth, there is a certain kingdom that's brimming with smiles. Fate thrusts young Princess Yuki, filled with idealism, joy, and innocence, into a station in life for which her most endearing qualities are ill-matched. Her kingdom faces grave danger as the Empire threatens the realm's security. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the conflict, an imperial soldier known as Stella Shining hides behind a facade. However, a time may come where her mask cracks, potentially costing her everything. Princess Yuki and Stella's paths will cross, and the fate of nations will follow.

Toshimasa Suzuki (whose works include Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne, Heroic Age) directs the series with Shinichi Inotsume (Hayate the Combat Butler, PERSONA 5 the Animation) in charge of series composition. The Japanese voice cast includes Yumiri Hanamori (Grimoire of Zero, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) as Princess Yuki Soleil and Saori Hayami (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Land of the Lustrous) as Stella Shining. Other cast members include Rina Sato (Gourmet Girl Graffiti, Knights of Sidonia) as Layla ?toile, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Akame ga Kill!, DEVILS' LINE) as Joshua Ingram, Yuki Nagaku (My First Girlfriend is a Gal, Seiyu's Life!) as Lily Airhart and Toshiki Masuda (Gakuen Basara: Samurai High School, Hitorijime My Hero) as Huey Malthus.

The series will soon be available to stream on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

Exclusive Red Carpet Premiere for MADE IN ABYSS Compendium, Journey’s Dawn, to Take Place March 15 at L.A. LIVE in Addition to the Nationwide Screening

HOUSTON, TX – January 29, 2019 – Sentai Filmworks and Kadokawa Pictures today announced that its first film in the two-part MADE IN ABYSS compendium, Journey’s Dawn, will screen across hundreds of movie theater locations in the U.S. Heralded as an adventure that’s both hopeful and harrowing, Journey’s Dawn will be shown in theaters on March 20 for the Japanese with English subtitled screening and March 25 for the English dub showing. The MADE IN ABYSS television series took audiences by surprise and garnered ecstatic reviews with its disarming facade that shrouded a dark masterpiece. Now, cinema audiences can experience the timeless story with newly added scenes and dynamic storytelling.

Presented in partnership with Fathom Events, tickets for MADE IN ABYSS: Journey’s Dawn are available at participating box offices and online at www.MadeInAbyssMovies.com and www.FathomEvents.com. To give audiences a unique experience, the event will include behind-the-scenes footage, Japanese created spots and a reflection on how MADE IN ABYSS mirrors fairytales.

Prior to the Fathom Events’ dates for MADE IN ABYSS: Journey’s Dawn, Sentai Filmworks will host the English subtitled red carpet event on March 15 at the Regal Cinema (L.A. LIVE) in downtown Los Angeles, Ca. The premiere will feature numerous special guests including famed director Masayuki Kojima, composer Kevin Penkin, music producer Hiromitsu Iijima and producer Shimpei Yamashita.

“On top of our major premiere event, we’re thrilled to present MADE IN ABYSS across hundreds of cinemas nationwide,” said John Ledford, CEO of Sentai Filmworks. “From the storyline, to the art style and music, Journey’s Dawn is sure to entertain fans and new audiences by allowing those to venture ‘deeper’ and ‘darker’ into this captivating film.”


Synopsis

The enigmatic Abyss is an unforgiving and deadly place. Despite the dangers, it still captures the imagination of explorers such as Riko who wishes to follow in her mother’s footsteps and trains hard to become a Cave Raider. One day, she receives news that her mother died in the Abyss, yet a mysterious note tells Riko that her mother may still be alive. Vowing to uncover the truth about her mother’s fate, Riko embarks on a journey with a humanoid robot boy name Reg. Together, they will discover if they have what it takes to survive where so many others have perished.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties



"Whenever happiness is destroyed, there's always the smell of blood"

Enter the realm of the demons as Demon Slayer premieres April 2019! Don't miss this melancholy tale of humans and demons, bloodcurdling swordfights and comical characters from studio ufotable and based on the popular manga by Koyoharu Gotouge serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.


About Demon Slayer:
It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself.

Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family. A sorrowful tale of siblings in which the fates of humans and demons intertwine…begins now!

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

Something legendary is coming... a new Dragon Ball Z collector's edition celebrating 30 YEARS!

Full series, on Blu-ray, North America's first full artbook, an exclusive figure, and... more announcements to come!

SOMETHING LEGENDARY IS COMING...

It's been 30 years of Dragon Ball Z and we want to celebrate in the most perfect way - with you! With your help, we're going to make a collector's edition worthy of a series this big, happen. Here's a look at what you can expect from this epic collection:
  • The complete Dragon Ball Z series on Blu-ray with new bonus content
  • North America's first ever full-sized hardback artbook - available only in this set!
  • An exclusive collectible figure - not available anywhere else!
And there's so much more to come, but we can't do it without your help.


HOW THIS WORKS

In the coming weeks, we'll reveal full details of the set and open a reservation period for fans to reserve their copy of this must-have collector's edition. And while we'd like to just wish it into creation with the Dragon Balls, we're going to need at least 2,500 of you super fans to help make this happen!

We'll have full details and artwork to reveal soon - and you won't want to miss out! Be sure to keep up-to-date by signing up for emails.


F.A.Q.

WHY HOLD A RESERVATION CAMPAIGN?

Due to the high costs associated with the set, we need to guarantee a minimum number to print. We think a DBZ 30th anniversary set is an awesome idea, but we need to measure the interest!

WHY 2,500 UNITS?

This is the minimum build order for sets from our printers. This minimum makes sure that we can sell the product to you at an affordable price.

WHY ARE YOU HOSTING THIS HERE INSTEAD OF ON A PLATFORM LIKE KICKSTARTER?

The short answer? We aren't looking to crowdfund this set. We feel that Kickstarter and similar crowdfunding platforms are typically asking fans to fund the creation of new content, not something like a collector's edition which may be cool but isn't quite the same as new content. We love and support (and back!) lots of projects for new anime, new dubs, or new forays into the North American market, though!

IF THE SET DOESN'T HIT 2,500 UNITS, WILL IT REALLY NEVER BE CREATED?

We're holding ourselves to the commitment that your pledge actually means something and is more than a gesture, so if we don't hit the minimum, we will not create the set.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VIZ MEDIA ANNOUNCES ONE-PUNCH MAN
SEASON 2 PREMIERE EXCLUSIVELY ON HULU

Catch Season 2 On Hulu The Same Day As
The Japanese TV Broadcast Premiere

San Francisco, CA, March 4, 2019 - VIZ Media proudly announces the premiere of Season 2 of the hit anime series ONE-PUNCH MAN on April 9th, the same day as the Japanese broadcast.

ONE-PUNCH MAN will be presented in Japanese audio with English subtitles with new episodes every week on Hulu, the streaming home for Season 2 in the U.S. Catch the official trailer for ONE-PUNCH MAN Season 2: https://youtu.be/7zLNi2wj3ZA

Based on the best-selling manga series created by ONE and illustrated by Yusuke Murata (published by VIZ Media), after three years of "special training," Saitama's become so strong that he's practically invincible. In fact, he's too strong - even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch. Alongside Genos, his faithful disciple, Saitama begins his official hero duties as a member of the Hero Association, while Garou, a man utterly fascinated by monsters, makes his appearance.

"We're excited to once again partner with Hulu to bring another action-packed season of ONE-PUNCH MAN to subscribers," says Brian Ige, Vice President, Animation. "This new addition to the streaming service joins VIZ's already expansive catalogue of hit series available on Hulu."
