It’s Attack on Titan on Anime For Dummies!
Watch as Navi interviews three of the newest talents from Rooster Teeth Productions: Kerry Shawcross (A Simple Walk Into Mordor), Miles Luna (Red vs Blue: Season 11) and Monty Oum (RWBY).
Well, it’s official! New York Comic-Con is under way! Here is the con report for Friday, October 11th, 2013:
Celebrating their 10th Anniversary and doing better than ever, Vertical Inc.’s Ed Chavez listed the newest licenses from one of the best manga and Japanese novel publishers in America. The list included Tropic of the Sun, a modern day sci-fi tale of politics verses traditional folklore from critically acclaimed film director Satoshi Kon, as well as hit Vertical titles like Knights of Sidonia (vol. 5 out now), Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (vol. 3 now available) and The Flowers of Evil (vol. 7 available). All of these series have anime in the making or available now.
The Flowers of Evil, by Shuzo Oshimi, is often described as a demented rom-com featuring a group of deviant teens trying and failing to find love in the most horrific ways possible. Needless to say, you will be shocked by this controversial and mature series!
Wolfmsund is a re-imagining of the legend of William Tell, and the violence is . . . beautiful! From Mitsuhisa Kuji, a former assistant on Berserk andEMMA (it shows!), the violence and insanity builds. This series is visually shocking, and will appall you over and over again!
Sickness unto Death is a great complement to The Flowers of Evil. A dark psychological thriller set in modern day Japan, this drama, wrapped in despair and confusion reveals the darkness of the human heart.
Did you know that Hideaki Anno, creator of Neon Genesis Evangelion, was married? Did you know that his wife is an acclaimed manga creator? Written by moyoco anno, Insufficient Direction tells the story of moyoco’s marriage to Hideaki, with as many anime, manga and tokusatsu references thrown in as possible! This ridiculous comedy shows us a side of Anno we never really see, and allows us to get to know some of the big shots in the industry in a casual way.
Two NEW LICENCES were announced during the panel. First off is In Clothes Named Fat, a new manga from moyoco anno which address anorexia and bulimia, and does not hold back! The other was Attack on Titan: Before the Fall, a three volume light novel series set before the events of the hit manga/ anime franchise.
Sunrise Industry Panel
This year at New York Comic Con, the guys and gals at Sunrise gave us the scoop on all the latest news from your favorite series, including Tiger & Bunny, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Valvrave: The Liberator and Code Geass: Akito the Exiled . . . but that’s not what I was there for!
No, what I was there to see was plain and simple: GUNDAM! After a video presentation titled The World of Gundam, Sunrise announced that Episode 7 of UC Gundam, entitled Over the Rainbow, will be released worldwide in the Spring of 2014. As for the mysterious G-Reko series and Gundam: The Origin, they should see a release sometime around the Summer of 2014, in time for Gundam’s 35th Anniversery.
