‘Seven Deadly Sins’ Anime Adaptation Gets New TV Spot & Casting

‘Seven Deadly Sins’ Anime Adaptation Gets New TV Spot & Casting

The Seven Deadly Sins The Seven Deadly Sins

The promos for the anime adaptation of The Seven Deadly Sins manga continue to roll out and the latest one has more casting news for it. Previous ones revealed the staff and cast information for the show and now we know that Jun Fukuyama will be appearing in the series as King. The show is being directed by Tensai Okamura for A-1 Pictures with Shotaro Suga handling the series composition while Keigo Sasaki is handling the character designs for it as well as serving as chief animation director. Just about all of them worked on Blue Exorcist together, which will make for some interesting comparisons to be done when the show arrives. The series cast includes Yuuki Kaji as Meliodas, Sora Amamiya as Elizabeth, Jun Fukuyama as King and Misaki Kuno as Hawk so far.

Announced back in April 2014 as being set for an adaptation, The Seven Deadly Sins anime series is scheduled debut in October 2014. The planning for the show is even a bit more formal as it’s being given a Sunday, October 5th 5pm broadcast on MBS/TBS, which is far more than we usually know for shows ahead of time.

The manga is created by Nakaba Suzuki with eight volumes in print so far and over three million copies in circulation total. Working in a similar vein as a few other properties of this nature, the manga has done the crossover gig with Fairy Tail before and you can imagine seeing that pop up in anime form as well as a special to promote it. The manga series began in 2012 and Kodansha Comics is bringing the series out this year for North American fans in print while Crunchyroll has the digital chapters being published on their site.

Plot concept: When they were accused of trying to overthrow the monarchy, the feared warriors the Seven Deadly Sins were sent into exile. Princess Elizabeth discovers the truth – the Sins were framed by the king’s guard, the Holy Knights – too late to prevent them from assassinating her father and seizing the throne!

Now the princess is on the run, seeking the Sins to help her reclaim the kingdom. But the first Sin she meets, Meliodas, is a little innkeeper with a talking pig. He doesn’t even have a real sword! Have the legends of the Sins’ strength been exaggerated?

Ace of the Diamond Episode #46 Anime Review

Ace of the Diamond Episode #46 Anime Review

Ace of the Diamond Episode 46 Ace of the Diamond Episode 46

Behind the knuckleball, Sakurazawa fights valiantly against the southpaw ace Mei Narumiya and powerhouse school Inashiro.

What They Say:
“Pitching of Despair”

I want to pitch to that mitt again… A meeting with catcher Kazuya Miyuki changed the 15-year-old Eijun Sawamura’s life. He said goodbye to all his friends and knocked upon the door of Seidou, a prestigious baseball school, intent on testing his own strength. There, he met many proud baseball players who were betting everything on the sport! A classic tale, yet new and fresh. All the emotion and excitement of the popular baseball manga is at last coming to television in the form of an anime!

The Review:
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
Inashiro’s good. Mei Narumiya is too damn good for a high school pitcher. He has a mean fastball that has to be at least in the mid-90 mph range. His new ball, a changeup he revealed a little too early (way back in episode 19), is giving the batters a hard time. With the fastball, they swing too early. With the changeup, they swing way too late trying to adjust for the fastball.

Inashiro’s in a pinch as well, though. The knuckleball is way off speed and it’s hard to get the timing right since it moves so slowly. Not just that, but it moves around. The first good hit Inashiro gets against Sakurazawa ends up right at the warning track and the left fielder barely catches the ball for the out at the top of the third.

Like I said in the previous review, Ace of the Diamond is a pitcher’s show. And every game we’ve seen is, to an extent, a pitcher’s game. That’s interesting. In a real game, people want to see runs. That’s the most exciting part of the game. But we focus in on pitchers in this show. The main character is a pitcher and we’re in their heads constantly trying to figure out what pitch they’re going to throw next and where. It’s a pitcher’s game, after all.

Inashiro’s second batter sees the third baseman not in the game and hits a ball straight through his legs. In the top of the fourth, momentum is finally moving in a direction and it’s toward Inashiro. The base runner quickly steals second and the next hit is another error and now there’s runners on first and third with no outs. The steal is interesting to watch because the ball moves so slowly. It can’t get to the plate fast enough and a fast enough base runner will be able to steal second easily. The ball just doesn’t get to the catcher in time, unless the catcher has a killer arm.
In the best case here, you get the out at home and first on the first pitch, which still leaves a man on second. Instead, the first base runner steals second, which takes away the double play opportunity. Then the cleanup batter hits a home run, bringing home three runs and here’s Inashiro’s momentum. Quickly, the fourth inning alone becomes a blowout and Inashiro scores eight runs in total. With three more in the top of the fifth, it’s essentially game for Sakurazawa.

This is why this is a pitcher’s game in a pitcher’s show. Narumiya’s pinpoint pitching absolutely sucked the morale out of the Sakurazawa offense and defense. “How will we ever hit against this guy?” They’re thinking this on both sides of the ball and it’s exactly what got Masuko kicked down to the second string at the beginning of the series. You can’t think about batting when you’re fielding.

Narumiya’s line at the end of the game is at once heartbreaking and touching. “Go home with your heads held high. You only lost to the best team in the country this year.” It’s the kind of stupid cocky line you expect to hear from a rookie or a high schooler. The catcher, much more humble, says he’ll kill Narumiya later. It’s probably why their battery works so well.

In Summary:
The only thing left in the way of Seidou and the Koushien is Inashiro and Mei Narumiya. Last year, with Azuma at cleanup and Kazuya a green-faced first year, they were absolutely defeated. Now, they have a rotation of reliable pitchers and you can bet Seidou is going to bring them all out against the powerhouse Inashiro. There were, I believe, five episodes originally planned before the show was extended another half year. It looks like the next episode will be a flashback focusing on the showboating catcher Kazuya, so I’m glad we (hopefully) have some more time for the Inashiro game.

I don’t know why two entire episodes were dedicated to the Inashiro v. Sakurazawa game. I think one episode would have sufficed. But it allowed us to really zero in on what Mei Narumiya’s pitching style is and why he’s probably the most perfect ace we’ve seen so far in a series full of diamonds in the rough. If the next few episodes aren’t some of the best sports anime I’ve seen ever, I don’t know why I’ve been watching. But given the Seidou v. Sensen episodes were so good, I doubt I’ll have to worry.

The cycle continues on of long running manga eventually coming to a close and the latest one to get an end date is that of Claymore. The series from Norihiro Yagi is reportedly set to end with the October 4th, 2014 issue of Jump Square, which will result in the series having 27 collected volumes when all is said and done. The series began in 2001 in Japan and has been released in North America by Viz Media, who has the 25th volume scheduled for a November 4th, 2014 release.

Human-Yoma hybrids of extraordinary strength and cunning, the Claymores roam from skirmish to skirmish delivering salvation by the edge of a blade.

Thus begins the twisting tale of Clare, one such sister of the sword driven by pain in both victory and defeat. A child silent and suffering hidden in her past, Clare’s march toward vengeance unfolds along a path marked by violence, solitude and scorn.

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun Episode #09 Anime Review

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun Episode #09 Anime Review

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun Episode 9 Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun Episode 9

Rain presents an opportunity while tanuki threaten to overrun the show.

What They Say:
Ninth Issue: “Do You Have Enough Excitement?”

The Review:
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
It feels like a classic shoujo romantic set up. Chiyo has forgotten her umbrella and there was a 100% chance of rain that day. It is raining. Along comes Nozaki and Chiyo proclaims her foolishness in forgetting her umbrella. Will this be a chance to share an umbrella? Come on. This is Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun. We know what comes next. Nozaki declares that he too is a dunce who forgot his umbrella. Nozaki attempts to use his uniform jacket to shield them both, but it’s no good. So, they sit down just outside the shoe lockers and Nozaki thinks about manga scenarios. One comes to life in front of him, as he imagines his lead character Suzuki without an umbrella. The idea is that all of the girls would charge to offer to share theirs, with the scene resembling a field of flowers.

While we are now getting entirely used to the show going for the opposite of the usual cliche when a common shoujo romantic trope appears, it still manages to do a good job of executing on that expectation. The sad way that reality fails to live up to fiction is brought to life as we immediately see Kashima coming out of school besieged by a mob of girls offering their umbrellas. The crowd looks more like a mob of mushrooms than the field of flowers in Nozaki’s imagination. It’s not exactly a romantic image. Another real life scenario is presented to Nozaki when Yuzuki stops by and gives Chiyo her umbrella, acting out the usual male role of abandoning his umbrella for a girl while running through the rain with only his school bag for cover. Nozaki is not a fan of Yuzuki’s…but he still notes this down as a model for the future. Here, the situation is played straight, but the humor comes out of the contrast between the emotional letdown Nozaki and Chiyo have from the event with Kashima, compared to this time where Nozaki is pleased that the trope is played straight (even if it was not specifically done for his benefit).

It…was not as romantic as Chiyo had wished It…was not as romantic as Chiyo had wished

So, we turn next to the seemingly sincere appearance of a classic trope, as Chiyo gets her wish of sharing an umbrella with Nozaki. Of course, it is only played straight so long as Chiyo is unaware of its existence. Once it dawns on her that she’s living the dream of sharing an umbrella with the boy she loves, that’s when the humor kicks in. Instead of this being a great romantic moment, various things go slightly (and very comically) wrong. At the end of it all, they both make it to his apartment soaked. Nozaki suggests that she undress…and change into the sailor uniform he has handy as a drawing reference. He’d like Chiyo to pose for a reference photo of how he intends to drawn Mamiko in an upcoming appearance. Chiyo, of course, is having none of it. While it’s now beginning to take on the cast of a running gag, the sailor suit joke is being used sparingly enough not to grow tiring or boring, so long as it’s only trotted out on occasion and not run into the ground.

In Part B, we have the return of Yukari Miyako, Nozaki’s neighbor and fellow manga artist. The one with all the tanuki. But it’s not really her story we see at first. Instead, we see some of her college friends gossiping about her. One has the mistaken idea that Yukari has a long-distance boyfriend, since she appears to be writing letters in class to him. These are actually scenario notes for her manga, which makes the punchline involving tanuki all that much better when it hits. And then it gets even better. Being able to build upon a joke when you’ve already thrown in an expected punchline by giving us something new is a good device, here executed well.

Later, Nozaki tries to recall what it was like to be published for the first time (as Chiyo is reveling in her work making it to print), so he visits with Yukari, overhearing her speaking to Maeno over the phone…demanding more tanuki in her manga. All of this, of course, makes Nozaki immediately feel so much better (he did not enjoy his early days under Maeno’s editorship). We then get to see the latest bit of raccoon dog drawings. Poor Yukari. Poor readers of her manga.

Sadly for Yukari, Maeno is such an dunderheaded, self-absorbed idiot that he often messes up titles. Not just the ones he outright orders to be changed to tanuki-flavored ones but even regular titles and dialogue, which seems to be changed into mature content not suitable for shoujo.. It gets up Nozaki’s ire to the point that he pushes Yukari to confront Maeno about it. Over the phone…she crumbles easily. Nozaki then plots to introduce complaints into the dialogue of Yukari’s manga, using a method that would be similar to an acrostic in English. Yukari, however, can’t put enough anger into her message. Therefore, Nozaki suggest the only method left: to overdo the tanuki to the point where they would appear ridiculous. Sadly, we know how this is going to work.

If you wish to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee… If you wish to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee…

While there is the danger of some of the gags getting repetitive and stale, the execution continues to compensate for that, keeping the humor fresh and the fun level high. Little side vignettes, clear markers of the four-panel origin of the show, break up the larger connected narrative in just the right way, for example Hori’s sudden appearance to yank Kashima out of the protective umbrella scrum that she had surrounding her from school. They keep one’s attention level high, preventing the feeling that things are falling into ruts. At the same time, the show still has a very strong feeling of a connected narrative flow. These are not just random events with no connections to each other. You can follow the flow of events in a natural progression without and required effort.

Another solid outing. The only minor issue might be that this show will, in the end, work more effectively as a weekly serial, giving the viewer some time between appearances of the same gags which might be somewhat more wearing during a continuous, uninterrupted viewing.

In Summary:
Rain comes and finds both Chiyo and Nozaki unprepared. The usual umbrella tropes come into play and get skewered right on cue. Then we have more of the trials and tribulations faced by Nozaki’s fellow manga author, Yukari Miyako, who suffers under the oblivious reign of error of her self-absorbed editor Maeno. Attempts to fight back only result in misunderstanding. While the direction of the humor is often predictable, the execution remains strong and there is enough variety to prevent a large-scale feeling of tedium that can come into play from repeated gags.

With the completion of the TV series this past winter, which was licensed by Sentai Filmworks, the team behind the series announced earlier this summer that they were coming back for another round of it, albeit a short round that’s tied to the upcoming manga releases. The series, which comes from Natsumi Eguchi that began in 2011 in Morning 2, has gotten the green light for three original episodes to be produced that will be tied to the 17th, 18th and 19th compilations. Those releases are scheduled for February 23rd, May 22nd and August 21st of 2015. And like a number of other OAD episodes are getting for treatment lately, it’ll get a brief theatrical run in 11 theaters in December. Ahead of that, the first 15 second spot has landed that gives us a little taste of that first installment.

The releases will be bringing back the team that includes Hiro Kaburaki as the direction, Norihiro Naganuma as the assistant director, who will be working off of the scripts by Midori Gotou. Hirotaka Kato returns as the character designer and chief animation director with the work being produced at Wit Studio once again.

Series concept: Hozuki is the aide to the Great King Enma. Calm and super-sadistic, Hozuki tries to resolve the various problems in Hell, including a rampaging Momotaro and his companions. However, he also likes spending his free time on his hobbies, such as fawning over cute animals and raising ‘Goldfish Flowers.’

'Monster Musume' Manga Reaches A Million Copies Sold, Celebrates With New Video

'Monster Musume' Manga Reaches A Million Copies Sold, Celebrates With New Video

Monster Musume Volume 1 Monster Musume Volume 1

Monster Musume, aka Daily Life with a Monster Girl, has been running in Monthly Comic Ryu magazine since the beginning of 2012 and the title has done well for them as well as for Seven Seas Entertainment, who picked up the license to it and began releasing it in late 2013. The title has five volumes out in Japan so far and that fifth volume is getting a release in North America in November. The real news though is that the title by Okayado has done exceedingly well for a new series that it’s sold over 1 million copies so far in Japan, which had the publisher put together a fun little promo video to help celebrate it.

Plot concept: Monsters: they’re real, and they want to date us!

Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood – not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the “Cultural Exchange Between Species Act,” these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they’re trying.

When a hapless human teenager named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a “volunteer” into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu’s job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life.

Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what’s a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?!

The Strain Season 1 Episode #8 – Creatures Of The Night Review

The Strain Season 1 Episode #8 – Creatures Of The Night Review

The Strain Season 1 Episode 8 The Strain Season 1 Episode 8

You don’t want to be caught in a convenience store at night in the midst of a vampire apocalypse.

What They Say:
Creatures of the Night – Setrakian gains a new and unlikely disciple after discovering the potency of ultraviolet light against the strigoi; a quick trip to a Brooklyn convenience store turns into a dead all-night siege.

The Review:
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
The roller coaster ride of things happening in The Strain has been enough so far in the first eight episodes that it could fill a lot of other shows full twenty-two episode seasons. With a good sized cast, a lot of motivations and interactions at play and some rather detailed back story brought into focus with Setrakian and Eichorst, there’s a pretty rich if brutal and violent world exposed here. It’s like things were peeled back to expose this second skin to people like Eph and Gus and now they’re coping with it and figuring out what it is they have to do in order to survive and, in some way, put that second skin to rest so the world can go back to normal. Normal is hard to imagine after the things that we saw with Setrakian before and now we have this other new group that has appeared at Joan’s place at the end of the previous episode that has their own agenda.

With Eichorst having taken a bit of a wounding what the group has done now, that’s given them a bit of a morale boost while also sending a message to the Master that they’re on the offensive against the strigoi. And that means modernizing some of the methods that they’re using. Setrakian has done well over the decades with what he’s fought against, but he’s also a creature of his own time and upbringing that hasn’t thought through certain things. Having understood how sunlight makes an impact on them, that gets Eph to try and figure out if they can use ultraviolet light against them, if not to destroy them outright than to wound them in some way or even just slow them down. It’s a smart approach and it’s one that has them proactive instead of just reacting to being attacked and using the same methods that Setrakian has used for who knows how many years.

When they end up at a medical supply facility to get the UV lights they need, it doesn’t go well since it’s late and that means they have to break in. That’s not high on Nora’s list of things to do in her life, but there’s a definite need at hand to do it so they actually go for it. Amusingly, once they’re inside, they find that Vasily is in there as well, bringing the two sides into contact for the first time. Not that there’s any trust going on here since Vasily is the one with the gun and thinking that they’re looters. But when they reveal who they are, he claims to be a looter himself, which is amusing since it’s true to a degree as he’s getting supplies he needs to deal with what he’s seen. There’s an amusing kind of balance that comes with the interaction from all of this, but also a sense from Setrakian that they need someone like Vasily on their side because he knows the underside of the city where the strigoi are operating in the thousands by now.

Things go badly quickly in the middle of the night and while we get the group doing a resupply at the convenience store, it doesn’t take long for the strigoi that are walking the streets to close in on them. There’s some amusement to be had with it in some of the reactions and events going on there, but there’s also some good action as we get Vasily leaping in to help with some real skill that helps to bolster Setrakian a bit. But the others get involved as well with their weapons, which gets Nora fighting for the first time and reinforces with Eph what he has to do. The really interesting part is seeing Jim put one of the UV lights together and using it against one of the strigoi that got close to him. It’s not clear that it kills the strigoi, but it seriously wounds him and provides for at least some kind of potential defense and offense against them.

While the group tries to figure out a plan while stuck in the convenience store, Vasily again proves that he’s the smartest of the bunch as he essentially corners Setrakian and plainly says that he wants the rules of this. He knows Setrakian gets what’s going on and he wants to know what’s required to fight without any question. The two have a kind of understanding that really comes across well and makes the two of them show a connection that you wish more people would have in these kinds of understandings when bad things go down rather than arguing with each other. Vasily’s the type that you expect will survive anything based on how he operates here. The group dynamic here is a really interesting thing to watch as we get the core group, the casual customers who got caught up in it and the hacker woman who caused a lot of the problems the city is facing. They’re being closwed in on by the strigoi that’s growing in numbers and they all want to get their hands on Setrakian. To make things even more complicated, it turns out that Jim ended up with one of the silvery worms inside of him through his encounter with the strigoi. Jim just can’t catch a break.

There’s a lot of good tension as events start to ramp up and the strigoi make more incursions into the shop and the garage that it’s attached to. Vasily is the one to watch with a lot of it but it’s also interesting to see how the strigoi are using some good tactics, utilizing tools and making some smart moves in getting into the place. The focus on surviving by getting to the bread truck outside and making a break for it is definitely fun to watch once everyone sets a course of action, one that Vasily decides upon after Setrakian essentially sets the tone and control of it all. But this causes a lot of friction at a critical time because Vasily is one that will act, to do what’s needed, and we see that in the case of Jim and the worms that are inside of him. Eph and Nora are still trying to deal with this in a humane way, but you can see that Setrakian and Vasily are on the same page. While they may survive this, they may not be on the same page going forward again.

In Summary:
The Strain has worked a number of stories so far and jumped around a lot in a good way, but this episode is certainly different. What we get here is the group stuck in one place for pretty much the entire thing and that means a lot to learn about how they’ll handle a really bad situation. With Vasily a part of the group and Dutch brought into play as well, a few different paths cross and we get a solid holding action throughout it before it turns to trying to escape before it goes bad. Vasily really does dominate here and it’s really well done to have someone like him who can take over the mantle for Setrakian in a way. There’s an old school feeling to the episode in a way with what it does and the structure of it, but it’s handled very well and left me really loving just about every minute of it, though still not happy at some of the deaths that we got along the way. A strong episode that has me wanting to see if this group dynamic will hold and where it could lead to.

Grade: B+
