Anime

Earlier last year we saw a Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion anniversary event where they mentioned that the series is in fact not over. And that Lelouch would be returning alive!

This in turn revealed plans for a three movie Comprehensive Theatrical Version of the original show summarizing the whole show with some new cutscenes. Debuting in January 2017  “Code Geass Lelouch of the Resurrection” anime set several years after Zero Requiem, which director Goro Taniguchi says stars a Lelouch who is alive and not an alternate version. Whether this will be a TV anime or movie has not been announced.

Seven Deadly Sins: Seven Days will explore Elaine’s meeting with Ban back during his bandit days. Elaine is tasked with protecting the Fountain after her brother’s disappearance, during that time she meets Ban, whom she initially distrusts. The seven days following this meeting form the central action of the series, as the two grow closer to each other.

Seven Deadly Sins: Seven Days will start its run in the February edition of Shonen Magazine, which goes on sale January 17.

Dragon Ball Super is reaching it’s climax as it moves into it’s “Universal Survival Ark.” It looks as if Goku is going to rock the foundation of the universe. Toei Animation confirmed that Dragon Ball Super would be kicking off a new arc known as “Universal Survival.”

The clip shows short glimpses show’s past arcs. Dragon Ball Super the ‘God of Destruction Beerus’ arc before ‘Golden Freeza’ kicked off. Followed by ‘Universe 6’ and continued with the ‘Future Trunks’ arc. In February 2017, the ‘Universal Survival’ story will get its debut, and its new teaser hints that a promise between Goku and the Omni-King will shake all of the universes.

“All the Gods of Destruction and Kaiōshin assemble, and an inter-universe martial arts competition is announced,” the teaser explains, describing the competition as the tournament of power.

The preview continues to explain that each universe is allowed 10 representatives in the martial arts contest. Any universe who loses will be annihilated without a second thought, so the teams are forced to fight for their universe’s sake.

At Goku’s request, the Omni-Kings’ “Tournament of Power” martial arts tournament between universes now begins! …But this also proves to be the beginning of universal destruction. What awaits the victors of this tournament, and the vanquished…?! How will these intense team battles between the elites of each universe turn out…?!”

 

Digimon Adenture Tri Part 4 is a six part anime film that is a continuation of the original Digimon Adventure. Tai and the gang are back, but now they’re in high school and a new group of Digidestined (Digimon Adventure 2) have appeared and they (original Digidestined) no longer have access to the Digital World.

However, the new group of Digidestined are now nowhere to be found. And Digimon have found themselves inside the human world again. The Digimon who happen to slip in are now much stronger than they used to be.

Tai and the group must now decide whether or not to save the world once again. Now more than ever Tai is unsure whether the group is actually doing the right thing. Extreme Spoilers: At some point their Digimon became reset and lost all their memories. The group believed they may have lost their partners forever in the last battle. They decide to return to the Digital World once again, before they become adults, to find their pals again.

Thus the fourth part of the film is called Shoushitsu (Loss). The office site for the film released a new 90-second clip for part 4. Make sure to check out the film, it’s pretty good. And it’s not as long as an actual series. Each part is about an hour and it’s more than worth it to watch if you were actually a fan of the show.

 

Lionsgate was in negotiations to film the first ever live-action adaptation of Naruto and are believed to have been sucessful. The series creator Masashi Kishimoto is also believed to be involved with the production.

The Z-Warriors prepare to fight for their existence as Goku leads a team of Piccolo, Roshi, Gohan, Vegeta, No. 17, No 18, Krillin, and Majin Buu in a Power Tournament, to be seen in the Dragon Ball Super’s Universe Survival Arc starting February 5th.

Nodame Cantabile OP #1 Allegro Cantabile by Suemitsu & The Suemith

The OP starts off with Chiaki and Nodame as children quickly fading them into adulthood. Though they didn’t meet until college. In the first few scenes we are given insights into Chiaki’s past (which we can’t give away due to the relevance in the series). The song is lovely and really pumps you up for one of the best music animes ever.

Official music video below:
