Kite Live Action Trailer Up.

Ah, finally the Hollywood adaptation of infamous anime 2 ep OVA with hentai element , "Kite" is up. The development of adaptation is been a long, long time, I heard about live action adaption for 1st time in 2006, I think. The director of the anime OVA is Yasomi Umetsu, the dude who gave us Mezzo Forte and Wizard Barrister Cecil.

Let's see how good this is but I would expect the explicit underaged sex scene to be snipped off.

Heavy Object Anime Announced

Dengeki Daioh announced anime adaptation of Heavy Object, a series that I already expected to given anime treatment since 2011. Written by same dude who did Magical Index, so expect typical anime hijinks - mecha, cute girls and clueless hero.

Synopsis: "The science-fiction war action story revolves around Objects, powerful, massive weapons that change the course of warfare and Elite Object pilots. An odd Elite girl named Milinda meets Quenser, a student who aims to become a Object mechanic, with the soldier-in-training Heivia on a snowy battlefield"

No announcement of the airing time yet.


First Impressions: Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works 2014

Holy crap.

Fate/Stay Night reboot of UBW by ufotable is stunning. Fuck yeah, this is what TYPEMOON fans like me has been dreaming for long, long time. It really feels what I felt when I play the fateful visual novel back in 2005.
Now Servants are really epic heroes instead of that crap years ago. The scene of first clash between Archer and Lancer is so well done indeed that I actually hooted in excitement because it is how the visual novel describe it. They shows how fast Lancer is and how enigmatic Archer's skill can be.
Art is bountiful, same level as Fate Zero. Voice acting is the same as the old series and music is not bad so far.
Episode 00 is prologue where readers play as Rin.
(Geeking happily) ^^ YOSHA!

If they keep up this kinda of quality, this will be a worthy contender for Anime of the Year.

Live Action Ghost in the Shell is Gaining Momentum

According to this site, Dreamworks is getting serious in adapting the most famous Japanese cyberpunk science fiction, GITS. Apparently one of the actress, Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street) in talks to be the female lead.

Directed by the dude who did Snow White and the Huntsman, no timeline has been given yet. Honestly speaking, I am not too impressed with Snow White so I getting a bit leery about this adaptation.

Time will tell if this movie will be something or not.

Aldnoah Zero Season 2 is Confirmed on 2015.

The current most talked about mecha sci-fi series, Aldnoah Zero will be split into 2 cour series of 12 episodes each, Season 2 is announced to be aired in Winter 2015, if I am not mistaken.

Perhaps this is to avoid expected to be explosive debut of Fate/Stay Night reboot that is scheduled end of this year. And perhaps the rationale is to keep quality of the production instead of stretching the budget for 24 episodes which might compromise the art etc too like Fate Zero.
