The light novel series better known by its anime, Sword Art Online, has already spawned a console game and it looks like its second console game is getting a great treatment. The first game has only been available on the Japanese market to the chagrin of many fans. The second game has been announced for release in Taiwan with a great perk. The game will be released in traditional Chinese and English. Which means the fanbase of English speaking countries around the world may cheer to this Asian release.

I can’t play them because of DRM you say? No worries! The game will be released on the PS Vita, a completely region free console (thank you Sony). So pre-order a copy at your local importer today, today is a great day for English speaking anime fans everywhere.

Set in an alternate storyline this game will probably surprise and please you in ways the anime couldn’t.

This new game will be released April 24 of this year.

Well, it’s not much, but it’s a little something. It seems good, but I’d prefer to hear more in regards to Eren, Mikasa, Armin, etc. All we can do is wait for more!

Current Anime/Manga Obsession: Attack On Titan

No Gravatar

News came about just a few days ago that Anime Limited has gained the license for the original soundtrack for the popular anime series Attack on Titan. The soundtrack contains 16 tracks, both inserts and background music, from the anime all composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, who has also composed songs for Gundam Unicorn, Guilty Crown and Kill la Kill. Songs include Attack On Titan, The Reluctant Heroes, Call Your Name, Eye-Water, Counter Attack-Mankind, and Rittaikidou.

We can expect a physical CD release later this summer, but as of right now, you can buy and download the entire soundtrack from all of the popular digital music stores, such as iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.

I stumbled upon a little documentary while I roamed around Youtube and while it’s far from perfect I think it gives a balanced overview of otakus. It’s so well made in fact I think it’s the one documentary to show any questioning parents so they have a good understanding of our little subculture.

The piece True Otaku: The Documentary is an amateur documentary that explains the otaku fandom by going straight to the source, questioning regular fans and industry professionals in Otakon and Anime USA about many different topics related to the subject.

Looks like our old banner!

Looks like our old banner!

It explains the anime boom that occurred in the US and how it led to the surge in anime fans that created such large conventions, lolita fashion, fan groups, and cosplay. Granted, they focused too much on cosplay and not enough on anime and manga, nor popular otaku video games such as visual novels and the unbelievably popular shooter Touhou nor fighting games like Persona 4, and not even on collectors of anime merchandise, but it’s a good introductory film to any questioning individual and I believe if  everyone saw it they’d have more respect for the otaku community.

You can see the film for free on Youtube where it’s split into 3 parts: You can watch the first part here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdv0n5DUb4E and see the rest at leisure. Happy watching!

Jesse Lex

All I can say in response to this is …….

Jesse Eisenberg is the new Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman.

Someone save me from this casting apocalypse!  Did the nerdom piss off our geek gods/goddesses somewhere in the universe? It seems the casting for this movie continues to appall me.

How do you feel about this latest casting choice? How about Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman or Ben Affleck as Batman?

(I’m secretly hoping this movie is about Henry Cavill as Superman taking out all these casting choices so we can just go back to another Man of Steel movie and pretend this just didn’t happen.)

Batman vs. Superman will hit theatres on May 6, 2016.

Playstation’s furry little mascots have been packing their bags and making their way to Hollywood. First, Ratchet and Clank announced a CG movie, and not is the Thievius Raccoonus’ turn. Sly Cooper will be hitting the big screen in an original CG movie in early 2016. Staying true to the series, the film will be a heist film staring Sly Cooper and his partners Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo.

The official synopsis of the film is as follows: ”Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, along with his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns of his birth family’s secret legacy; that he comes from a long line of talented and international thieves. Endowed with this knowledge, Sly and his friends are catapulted into a global adventure as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding The Cooper Clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk – an evil Russian metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. From romantic Parisian backdrops to the lush mountains of China, gritty film noir meets bright, colorful graphic novels in this origin story of the world’s greatest thief-turned-hero.”

VP of Development and producer, David Wohl, had this to say about the film. ”The film will stay true to the franchise, though it will not be a complete origin story. In the film, Sly and his buddies are already together, though they are far from being great at what they do.” In regards to if the game voice actors would reprise their roles in the film, “We are exploring that now. The film will be a mix between those actors from the game, and various other talent who we can have fun with bringing into the franchise.”

19dxilw5y7l8ajpg

Producer and CEO of Blockade Entertainment, Brad Foxhoven, spoke more on the film, ”We are working very closely with both Sony and Sucker Punch to make sure we are staying true to the franchise. Since we were altering the look of the characters and world into pure CG, it was important to keep them in the process. This included the script, the characters, models, and the cast. Of course we were nervous about the results, and breathed a massive sigh of relief when they gave their approval. Now we just have to wait for the fans.”

The film takes a noticeable cosmetic change from their known cel-shaded look to fully CG. Foxhoven said that, ”Going this path was a bold leap, but one we felt was appropriate for the theatrical process. The global film market leans towards pure CG-animated films. As much as we all loved the cel-shaded look of the game, we collectively felt it would not hold up on the big screen. Though we believe we managed to keep a lot of the feel of the game even in the film. Thankfully, Sony and Sucker Punch were supportive and agreed!”

With Ratchet and Clank releasing in 2015 and now Sly Cooper coming in 2016, I think Playstation chose the right titles to become movies. By the trailer it seems to have the signature style and comedy players have grown to love over the years. These might be the movies to actually make a good video game adaptation. If successful it they both could become blueprints on how to make a video game movie, or at least ones with anthropomorphic creatures. We will just have to wait and see how it turns out.
