Dragon Ball Z Gets New 2015 Film by Creator Toriyama

17 Jul 2014

Posted by John666m In: Otaku News
Akira Toriyama writes new script & designs new characters for next spring's film

Posted Image

The September issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that a new Dragon Ball Z movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring. Dragon Ball manga creator Akira Toriyama is personally credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs of the new movie "that the entire universe eagerly awaits!!"

Toriyama confirmed in the magazine that this new film, like last year's Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, will tell a new story. He had intends to write this story as if it were a continuation of manga's original serialization. Although he did not plan on it, he is not only putting a lot of effort in drawing the art, but also "fussing over the smallest dialogue lines." He also promised more action scenes. He teased that the story is still secret, but will be "utterly funny."

To emphasize the effort he has put into this new film, Toriyama said that even his first manga editor praised him on the work he has done, even though this editor rarely ever does that. Toriyama is confident that fans will be able to thoroughly enjoy the movie. He is currently drawing up new character designs, and asked his fans to look forward to the movie.

Update: Toriyama intends to write this story as if it were a continuation of manga's original serialization, not that he intended to write it while the manga was serializing. Thanks, Ryuman and Kanzenshuu.

This year's 34th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that the Gintama anime will return for a one-episode special. This year's Jump Special Anime Festa event tour will debut this "tearful episode."

Jump Special Anime Festa will visit six cities this year: Tokyo on November 9, Sapporo on November 15, Sendai on November 15, Osaka on November 16, Nagoya on November 16, and Fukuoka on November 16. The magazine is holding a random drawing for 6,390 pairs of tickets. The Tokyo stop will include stage events with the voice cast members.

Hideaki Sorachi's Gintama action comedy manga inspired a television anime that premiered in 2006 and continued (with several extended hiatuses) until 2013. It also inspired two movies, including the "final" Gekijōban Gintama Kanketsu-hen: Yorozuya yo Eien Nare film that opened last July. Weekly Shonen Jump's 33rd issue had teased that the manga is celebrating over a decade of serialization with "OOO" (an unrevealed term that can be spelled with three Japanese syllables).

17 Jul 2014

Posted by John666m In: Otaku News
Original video anime episodes feature all-new story, hot spring scenes, all 7 witches

Posted Image

The 13th compiled volume of Miki Yoshikawa's Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is announcing on Thursday a second original video anime (OVA) inspired by Miki Yoshikawa's manga will ship with the limited edition 17th compiled volume of the series on May 15, 2015. The anime episodes will feature an original story, as well as hot spring scenes. The advertisement also teases that all seven witches will make an appearance.
Ryota Ohsaka and Saori Hayami will star as Ryū Yamada (top center) and Urara Shiraishi (top right), and Toshiki Masuda and Maaya Uchida are also part of the cast as Toranosuke Miyamura and Miyabi Itō. The anime is holding open auditions for another student role, Kentarō Tsubaki, who is the friend of Maria Sarushima. More details about the audition will be available at the series official website at a later time.

The story of Miki Yoshikawa's original "love x kiss x comedy" manga begins when Yamada, the high school's worst problem child, bumps into the beautiful honor student Shiraishi on the stairs, and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.

Tomoki Takuno (episode director on IDOLM@: XENOGLOSSIA, Love Live! School idol project) is directing the project at LIDEN FILMS with assistant director Fumiaki Usui. Eriko Iida (episode animation director on Love Live! School idol project) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Yota Tsuruoka is the sound director.

Yoshikawa launched the manga in 2012, and the series is currently running in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Kodansha will publish the 13th volume of the manga on July 17 with the pre-order form for the first original anime DVD. Crunchyroll is releasing manga chapters online overseas as they are published in Japan. The manga already inspired two promotional videos, including the one that announced the anime:



The manga features cameos by characters from Yoshikawa's earlier Yankee-kun to Megane-chan manga, which inspired a live-action television series. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo also received a live-action adaptation which premiered on the Fuji TV channel last August. LIDEN FILMS animated the first promotional video.
