A television anime adaptation of Yūji Terajima's Ace of Diamond baseball manga has been green-lit for this fall. The anime's official website has opened, along with its official Twitter account. More information such as the cast and broadcast stations will be announced later.
The story follows Eijun Sawamura, a pitcher who joins an elite school with a brilliant catcher named Kazuya Miyuki. Together with the rest of the team, they strive for Japan's storied Kōshien championships through hard work and determination.
From the same makers of Gurren Lagann anime, the story is set on a high school that the student council president Satsuki Kiryūin rules by force. Ryūko Matoi, a transfer student wielding a giant Basami scissors sword, brings about upheaval on the campus. A must see!
The tenth volume of Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga ranked at #4 on Nielsen BookScan's list of top 20 graphic novels in American bookstores for April.
The same volume had ranked at #5 on the list in March.
The Sailor Moon volume is one of four manga titles on the list. Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto volume 60 ranked at #7, dropping from #3 from last month.
Kazue Katō's Blue Exorcist volume 9 and Tite Kubo's Bleach volume 56 ranked at #11 and #18 respectively.
Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic series continued to dominate the chart, claiming nine places this month, with The Walking Dead Compendium volumes 1 and 2 again taking the top two spots.
Gene Luen Yang's Avatar the Last Airbender: The Search -- Part 1 ranked #3.
The BookScan rankings represent sales at Barnes & Noble and other book chains, independent bookshops, and online purchases — but not sales at comic book stores, Walmart, and some other venues.
Simply amazing, I wouldn't mind a anime series of this classic , given that there's only one movie.
The June issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine announced a new series in Yuki Hijiri's Locke the Superman franchise on Thursday. The tentatively titled Chōjin Locke: Toki no Kodomo-tachi (Locke the Superman: Children of Time) will start in the next issue on June 5.
The story is set after the destruction of Master Yūji, and the magazine promises that the manga will reveal "another page in the history of the galaxy."
The original Locke the Superman manga ran in at least three different magazines from 1967 to 1989.
It chronicled an immortal figure's adventures at different periods throughout time. It inspired a movie and three original video anime projects (Locke the Superman: Lord Leon, Locke the Superman: Mirror Ring, Locke the Superman: New World Battle Team).
The homepage for Studio Deen’s forthcoming Rozen Maiden television series has added a teaser trailer. Mamoru Hatakeyama (Sankarea) is directing the new adaptation of Peach-Pit’s manga, from scripts by Fancy Lala creator & screenwriter Tomomi Mochizuki. The 2013 anime will be a new adaptation of the original manga rather than a continuation of the 2004-2006 anime franchise animated by studio Nomad. The new anime series will premiere in July.
Even though it's basically moe with tank porn, the concept is amusing enough
The "Heartful Tank Carnival" event revealed on Sunday that production on an entirely new Girls und Panzer film has been green-lit, and it will open next year. Tsutomu Mizushima is once again directing the project.
In addition, production on an original video anime (OVA) about the battle against Anzio Girls High School has been green-lit. Finally, a fan disk mostly devoted to footage from Sunday's event will go on sale in September.
It seems we will get more canon this month? Not so likely, we shall wait and see.
