> Tsubasa resovior chronicles anime finally confirmed!

Oh well, it's quite obvious that would happen, but I had nevertheless been naïvely hoping for an XXXholic anime.

Gakuen Alice site update:

I like XXXholic better too, though I'm not a huge fan of either. (Not that I dislike them, just don't care much either way.)

You know XXXholic will be a movie though, right? It's a stylish comic, I think it'll adapt well to a movie.

James Cameron told Associated Press a bit more about the Battle Angel live-action movie. "It's going to be a combination of live action and (computer graphics) but done photorealistically. There will be CG characters and live-action characters."

He expects to start shooting in May of June this year and there will be about 1,500 visual effects shots.

Although they originally planned on a 2006 release, the movie is currently planned for 2007 so that they can "ride the impending wave of digital cinema." The movie will be released in 3-D and 2-D theaters, and will require the 3-D glasses for 3-D viewing.

I loved the Alita comics, but 3D? Kind of cheesey...

Tokyopop sent out a press release yesterday announcing the launch of their 5th Rising Stars of Manga competition. For the first time in the competition's history, there will be a People’s Choice on-line component where fans will get to select a winner online. The competition runs until February 15th.
Finally. I never agreed with their choices...

I did not know that. And yes, it's the most stylish thing CLAMP has done since Clover, which is still my all-time favourite of their works. I hear rumours that there exists an animated short of Clover, but I've never been able to find it.

So, do you have any further information about the movie?

9 Name: !iLove5X52g 2004-12-02 00:34 ID:Zk0V9IxQ [Del]

Not too much info on xxxHolic yet, there's a quick blurb on Clamp's site right now ( saying it will be out in 2005 and Production IG is animating it (!)

As far as the Clover short, I think I saw some of it at a convention once a while back... Surprised there's no torrent that I know of!! Unless I'm thinking of the Wish short...

Wow a lot of news today!!!!

NANA MOVIEキタ━━━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━━━!!!

(It will be a live action movie)
Based on the popular shoujo manga from Yazawa Ai of the same name. Main parts are the singer Nakajima Mika(Miyoshi?)(age 21) and Miyazaki Aoi(19) . Ootani Kentarou is the director. Shooting begins in January. Also three male actors have been announced to play opposite the two Nanas.

I might have translated the names wrong, sorry! (I didn't even try with the guy's names.. orz) But this is really exciting. Comments of the staff are all along the lines of "We will stay true to the original comic to not betray the fans, but those who are not familiar with it can enjoy it too."

Anyway, Nana's such a good comic, Yazawa Ai shows life so realistically and wonderfully. I didn't see the movie of Last Quarter, but I guess it was well recieved since they're making this.

What worries me mainly, is how they could fit everything into one movie. 10+ manga volumes don't make a good short movie, especially when the side characters stories are as interesting as they are in Nana. I guess the focus can be on Hachi, Nana, Remu, Shouji, and Takumi, but what about Shin, Reira, Naoki, Sachiko, Junko, etc... (T__T) But still, I'm happy for anything!

(For those who don't know, Yazawa Ai is the author of Paradise Kiss, which along with Nana, are fashionable and realistic shoujo manga with very unique art and often unidealised stories and characters which contrast most other shoujo manga)

> Kino no tabi

What is this about, anyway? Says "renewal", so a re-broadcast, or something new?

24 Name: !iLove5X52g 04/12/18(Sat)06:00 ID:6c+3Qnrc [Del]

The site is about all the different kino stuff, the new things being a movie of Kino no Tabi, and a visual novel which includes a DVD.

I'm not sure what it will be about. The subtitle of the movie is "Nanika wo suru tame ni - life goes on -

When Japanese sites say "renewal", they're usually talking about a website update.
