Fruits Basket Season 2 Brings New Key Visual, Message from Mangaka

A brand new key visual has been revealed for Fruits Basket Season 2, coming to Funimation in April! The new visual shows us Tohru Honda, the Somas and others on the beach — and it’s so cute!

Fruits Basket Season 2 will premiere on April 7 at 1:30 a.m. in Japan, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store in just a few short weeks. For now, take a look at the amazing new key visual below, and a special message from Fruits Basket creator Natsuki Takaya.

https://venue-blog-prod.s3.amazonaws...03/Fruba_2.jpg

A Message from Fruits Basket Creator, Natsuki Takaya
Congratulations on the broadcast of the second season of the anime, Fruits Basket (2019). I appreciate all of those who are part of its production for their continued involvement from the first season, and I’m very happy that I can observe as the title reaches many viewers.

To tell the truth, even though I wrote the original story, there are often details that I’ve forgotten (It has been more than ten years since I completed the series). That’s why I’m brought to tears when confirming the scenario, and I wonder, “Who wrote such a painful story? It was me.” This keeps happening, so I think I might dehydrate myself from fluid loss if I watch with the addition of video, voices, and music. I’m a little worried about that.

The characters in the second season have lost their way, but it’s because they are lost that they can make the most out of it and struggle to search for the right path. I hope everyone will watch over them until they find their way. It would give me the utmost joy if everyone will love them as they search. I look forward to watching as a viewer myself.

— Natsuki Takaya

Season 2 Overview: It’s been almost a year since Tohru started living at Shigure’s house! Though she now has a deeper relationship with each of the Somas, not just Yuki and Kyo, she is concerned about their sinister curse’s true nature. The right path to choose, predetermined destiny… what emotions will arise in Yuki, Kyo and Tohru in the face of the Eternal Banquet? What will be their resolve?

Kakushi will do anything to make sure his daughter Hime doesn't find out that he's a mature manga artist.

Kakushigoto joins the Funimation Spring 2020 lineup subbed and dubbed.
_______________________________

Kakushigoto follows a lonely mangaka, Kakushi Goto, who draws vulgar manga. The twist? Well, he has to hide the fact that this is his work so that his young daughter, Hime, isn't exposed to its mature content. This slice-of-life comedy will explore the relationship between father and daughter, and the plight of an adult manga creator.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Acquires “After the Rain”

HOUSTON, TX March 5, 2020 — Sentai announced today that it acquired After the Rain, an anime series produced by WIT Studio (Hozuki’s Coolheadedness, Attack on Titan) based on the complex, character-driven manga of the same name.

After the Rain is a story about life’s crossroads. There are moments great and small in which circumstance and choices, in equal measure, define a person. Akira Tachibana was once the ace of a track club, but an injury forced her to quell her passion for sports. Masami Kondo, a divorced father, had ambitions of being a writer and now manages a restaurant, where Akira works. It is the intersection of Akira and Masami’s seemingly disconnected lives that makes each of them reconsider and redefine everything about themselves.
After the Rain is directed by Ayumu Watanabe (Space Brothers) with series composition from Hitomi Mieno (Flying Witch). The series stars Sayumi Watabe (Beastars) as Akira Tachibana and Hiroaki Hirata (Space Brothers #0) as Masami Kondo.

The series will be released on home video and select digital outlets.

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED SD/HD Comparison Video

We planned on showing this SD/HD comparison video during this weekend's industry panel at Naka-Kon. Since that event has unfortunately been canceled we won't have that opportunity so at this time we’d like to share it with everyone here instead! We just wanted to let everyone know that the incredibly talented people at Nozomi Entertainment have been working hard on the Gundam Seed/Destiny project and we wanted to give everyone a little peek. Enjoy.

OK, I just realized all this talk of Fruits Basket is a new telling? Not just a re-issue of the old series?

Is it the same story with more details?

It's a remake of the original series (2001) of which was incomplete. The full Fruits Basket story will be animated with the new series (Season 2 starting next month). Manga author Natsuki Takaya will be the executive supervisor of the project. If you enjoyed the original series, I would definitely watch the new one. It will cover contents that has never been animated before.

HOUSTON, TX — March 24, 2020 — Sentai announced today that it will postpone the theatrical release of MADE IN ABYSS: Dawn of the Deep Soul from April to later in 2020 due to the global and local impact of COVID-19. The decision to delay the film’s release impacts all film locations and screenings, including international sites.

“Our first priority is to ensure the safety of fans, theater staff and the broader community,” said John Ledford, Sentai CEO. “After careful consideration and deliberation, we determined that it is in the best of interest of theatergoers and the public to reschedule this release. While we are disappointed by the delay, we have every intention of giving this film the theatrical release it deserves when the time is right and safety can be assured. Fans of MADE IN ABYSS should keep an eye on our social media pages and dedicated MADE IN ABYSS site for updates.”

The film was set to premiere at Anime Boston, but that event was cancelled along with the cancellation of that convention.

Fans who had previously purchased a ticket to a showing of MADE IN ABYSS: Dawn of the Deep Soul should contact the outlet through which they purchased their ticket to inquire about ticket credits or refunds.

Get ready for our next heist. Gem stone

GKIDS is proud to announce the acquisition of the North American rights to LUPIN THE 3RD: THE FIRST.

#LupinIII #MonkeyPunch #ルパン三世 #TakashiYamazaki
Based on the iconic series by Monkey Punch and directed by Takashi Yamazaki, it's the newest film in the #LupinThe3rd franchise and the first in CGI. Coming to theaters in 2020 in both Japanese with subtitles and a new English dub.

https://gkids.com/2020/03/26/gkids-a...-3rd-the-first
GKIDS ACQUIRES NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS TO ANIMATED FEATURE “LUPIN THE 3RD: THE FIRST”

HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FILM MARKS FIRST TIME IN CGI FOR STORIED ANIMATION FRANCHISE

GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced that it has acquired the North American distribution rights for the animated feature LUPIN THE 3RD: THE FIRST, a new animated feature from director/screenwriter Takashi Yamazaki (STAND BY ME DORAEMON, DRAGON QUEST: YOUR STORY). The “LUPIN THE 3RD” franchise, from original creator Monkey Punch, began in 1967 and has spanned a variety of manga, TV, game, theme park ride, and musical adaptations, including The Castle of Cagliostro (1979), the feature film debut from the acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki. GKIDS will release LUPIN THE 3RD: THE FIRST theatrically in 2020 in both Japanese and an all-new English language dub. The deal for North American rights was negotiated by GKIDS President David Jesteadt and Sam Maseba, Director of Licensing for TMS Entertainment.

“As someone who has been a fan of Lupin III since The Castle of Cagliostro, I was blown away by quality of animation and storytelling in LUPIN THE 3RD: THE FIRST,” said GKIDS President David Jesteadt. “Director Takashi Yamazaki has taken such incredible care and detail in creating Lupin’s first adventure in CG, and I am hopeful that audiences fall in love with the film as much as I have.”

”Lupin III has been stealing hearts of audiences of all ages for over 50 years, and we’re proud to be able to present the latest evolution of the world’s greatest thief,” said TMS Entertainment, Vice President Masami Tokunaga. “We are truly excited to be collaborating with GKIDS to bring this amazing film to our fans in North America.”

SYNOPSIS

The iconic “gentleman thief” Lupin III returns in an action-packed, continent-spanning adventure, as Lupin III and his colorful underworld companions race to uncover the secrets of the mysterious Bresson Diary, before it falls into the hands of a dark cabal that will stop at nothing to resurrect the Third Reich.
