Updates on Akira Live Action


Director Ruairi Robinson with first time screenwriter Gary Whitta is confirmed in the making, the material will be split into 2 movies to accomodate 6 volume manga works. Set in New Manhattan instead Neo Tokyo though.

Who is Mr Robinson? Frankly this info did not give me much confidence. However I have to confess that I have yet to see any of his works here so it is 50-50 for me.

Earlier entry

Crunchy Roll rolls on with more GDH titles.

In closely watched move, Crunchy Roll, the premier media streaming site which formerly stream fansubs illegally now add more titles from GONZO library which mainly old series from 2002-2005 era. Last EXILE, Kaleido Star, Chrno Crusade and Peacemaker Kurogane are on the list of the additions. GONZO likes the site since they do allow screening of Druaga and Strike Witches there.

I am interested to see if the streaming site can make money from this. In future, people might just turn to these technology to get their weekly anime fix instead of downloading fansubs if the fees were reasonable enough. I do believe this is way of future.
