General Japan News
It's been two weeks since Animator Expo featured a piece that was based on an existing anime property, and the project is now ready to release another special short. This time around, Tadashi Hiramatsu's (worked on Key Animations for Roujin Z and the Rebuild of Eva films) until You come to me. (slightly NSFW) short features some illustrations from Evangelion; however, the images shown in the animation aren't from the previous Eva installments, which means that they might be related to the upcoming film in the Rebuild series.
Man. I don't know about you, but there seems to be a lot of ninjas entering the new year all of a sudden. Thankfully, a majority of them happen to be good, so there's a good chance that the shadow assassins won't burn people out when 2015 enters the scene.
Our "imprisoned" director finds his creative spark, while Misa finds courage to get out of a prison of a different kind. A week later Aoi might be the key to help these the two to freedom, if she can overcome the most difficult task of them all. Shirobako, finally, gears up to the final episode...of Exodus.
This is the episode in which things go according to plan. Well, mostly anyway. And where things don't follow the plan, we and our heroes still come out ahead, ready for the next stage.
So, all in all, a raid well-executed.
As we're getting closer to the holidays, the folks at NIS America have announced that The Awakened Fate Ultimatum hits North America on March 17, 2015, with Europe getting their release on March 20, 2015. Since the game involves your character switching between an angelic and demonic form, people have the option to pre-order the title's Angelic or Devilish Limited Edition.
Now this is what I call an unexpected turn of events, people. If you've been yearning to play more visual novel titles on your consoles, then you'll be happy to hear that Steins;Gate's PS3 and Vita release are heading to North America and Europe in 2015. However, Siliconera's post on the Steins;Gate's console release confirmed that this version is being handled by PQube, and they're unsure if their version will have the same translation as JAST USA's release, since MAGES were the ones that gave them the build of the game.
Personally, I still think that this news is still a great turn of events for visual novel fans, since it's not everyday that we get titles like these on the consoles. In a way, it's almost like the Future Gadget Lab sent a text message to the past to make this dream a possibility. Who knows, if the game does well on the PS3 and/or Vita, then we might see an age where more console visual novel titles get released in the West.
