Fate/Go Coming to the US? stars

Attendees this morning in Seattle for Sakura-Con couldn’t help but notice the cut out displays and banner from the mobile game Fate/Grand Order (Fate/GO) at the Aniplex booth. 

Aniplex of America is the distributor for the animated short, Fate/Grand Order First Order; however, fans will note instead of using the key art from the animation, Aniplex has opted to use the artwork from the mobile game Fate/Grand Order. Aniplex is also set for a major announcement at 11AM PST tomorrow morning during their panel. In addition, while this may be a coincidence, a press conference will be held tomorrow at Sakura-Con to “unveil a major Anime series that will have a new game launching in the US in 2017.” A number of key staff members affiliated with Fate/GO has been rumored to be in attendance. 

In 2016, Fate/Go was released in China by biligame, so the likelihood of the game to be released internationally in other territories is a possibility based on the success and popularity of the franchise. Another possibility is the announcement may be related to the VR exclusive title for the Playstation 4 Fate/Grand Order VR which was first shown to the public last month during AnimeJapan held at the Tokyo Big Sight.

As we have staff onsite at Sakura-Con, we'll keep you updated and will also be present for the press conference tomorrow.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica The Movie US Premiere stars


Earlier this month, the Madoka Magica movies hit the big screens in Japan. Recognizing the interest overseas, Aniplex and SHAFT worked hard to bring the first two parts of the trilogy to foreign theaters. The very first screening was held at Downtown Independent in Los Angeles, California at 1:00PM. Being personal fans of the TV series, this was an event we would not miss.

Oreimo (DVD) Review stars

When I first heard of Oreimo, I thought to myself, "yet another series that I must keep from watching in front of family and friends because it's borderline super ecchi (sexually suggestive)." [Editor's note: Aniplex licensed the series as Oreimo, a shortened version of the original Japanese: Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai, which translates to, My Little Sister Can't Possibly Be This Cute.] I was surprised to discover that the title was misleading, and the series has deeper themes like: acceptance, understanding, family bonds, and of course love for anime, manga, doujinshi (fan-made comics), and eroge (adult computer games).
