Re: Zero Visual Novel: Death or Kiss – First Promo Trailer out!

It has only been a few months since Re: ZERO anime ended its first series course: if you never heard of it you should probably give it at least a look, since we’re talking about one of the biggest anime phenomenon of the last years.

Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- (Ri:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) started in 2012 as a Japanese light novel series written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shinichirou Otsuka. The story centers on Subaru Natsuki, a young boy who suddenly finds himself transported to another world while he was on his way home from the convenience store, and it quickly became a huge success in Japan, featuring three different manga adaptations between 2014 and 2016 (published by Media Factory and Square Enix). However, the story reached its definitive consacration in 2016 with the stunning 25-episode length anime television series adaptation by White Fox. For additional info, read the Wikipedia page.

Saint Seiya: Soldiers Soul upcoming release for PS3, PS4 and PC platforms

Few days left and Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul, the new fighting game inspired to the acclaimed anime series who brought on screen the universe beautifully crafted by Masami Kurumada, will be out for sale. The videogame will most likely be a revised and updated remake of Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, released last year and welcomed by mildly neutral-to-negative reviews due to some major flaws in graphics and gameplay.

Fans will be happy to finally see the God Cloths, the exceedingly powerful gears recently featured in the new anime series Soul of Gold which aired this spring. The arenas, the animation patterns and the character design have all been improved, and the commands have also been simplified to make it easier to pull out the playing character’s final move.  Speaking of wich, the Anime Expo 2015 trailer shows an impressive amount of people that will surely please the series enthusiasts: the playing character roster features the main bronze saints, all the saints from the Asgard, Poseidon and Hades chapters, the aforementioned God Cloths.

Terra Formars AMV: italian opening – Maledetti scarafaggi (Parody)

Togheter with our brief review of the horror-entmological anime we tried to imagine how an italian version of the opening theme would sound if the series would be distribuited by Mediaset, an italian TV network group who is responsible of many illogical adaptations in the past. We came up with an Anime Music Video featuring the song “Maledetti Scarafaggi” from the french series Oggy et le cafards (song is © Mediaset / RTI Music).

Terra Formars AMV: Maledetti Scarafaggi

The AMV is also available in Full HD on our YouTube channel at the following link.

Terra Formars: first impressions

The animated version of the action-packed seinen manga by Yu Sasuga is now halfway through. While 6 episodes ain’t enough to put togheter a full analysis we can already say that Liden Films is definitely saving their money here by putting togheter a rather cheap production featuring a fair amount of flaws. The biggest issue are related to the less-than-decent (to say the least) animation part: those who will watch this expecting the intense, frenetic combat movements featured by Sasuga are going to be disappointed by the extra-long (and mostly static) sequences of people talking here and there, whose apparently unique purpose is slowing down the interesting stuff. Curiosity and frustration will both grow really fast, yet the series constantly fails to exploit them with the few pure action sequences, which are torn to pieces almost every time by an high amount of poorly-inspired flashback and entmological explanations which, as great as they were in the manga, end up being rather frustrating in the anime. Adapting is harder than merely copying, and the series would’ve needed no less than that.

The animated version of Michelle K. Davis is not even a match for its paper counterpart: you’re going to miss this chick big time.
