If you are in US, then probably this will be good news (and bad news for us living in Japan, so to speak).

Those of you who lives in US will be able to watch the live action movie of Gantz first. In my opinion, it is pretty weird. And according to Cinema Today, Kenichi Matsuyama who played the lead role is also confused that the movie will be released in Japan later.



 Happy news for the Evangelion fans in US and Canada.

The new Evangelion movie “破” will be exported to American soils from January 2011.


 As we have noticed before, from tomorrow, you can watch the latest work from Hayao Miyazaki, at Ghibli museum located in Mitaka City, Tokyo.

No, this is not the rumored one, which will be revealed on December 15th.

 There has been an interesting survey going on at the largest blogging platform in Japan, Ameba blog, asking if you like Ghibli more than Disney or vice versa.

So far, Ghibli is leading the race with 56.7 %. Even though Disney is behind Ghibli, you might be surprised how popular the Disney is in Japan.

Bilingual Date Masamune, visual-kei looking Akechi Mitsuhide, trigger happy Nou Princess. If you know what I’m talking about, then you must be a fan of Sengoku Basara which was originally a video game made by Capcom.

Game became Anime. Then what? Of course, the next step is the movie! Those amazing samurai warlords (and princess) will be on the movie screen in 2011 by the leading animation company, Production I.G who created the Ghost In the Shell Stand Alone Complex.

It is rumored that Miyazaki Hayao’s next work will be the sequel of Porco Rosso!

It is still a rumor, Studio Ghibli will announce about the next work on December 15th. In the meantime, look at those photos and be prepared for the official announcement!

As you might know, the theme song of the Evangelion Movie “破” by Utada Hikaru was not included in the sound track album of that movie.

However finally you will be able to listen to the song “beautiful world”, because Utada decided to put it into her best album, “Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol.2” which will be released November. This song will be acoustic version, according to Cinema Today (Japanese).
