  • The president of Sunrise, Kenji Uchida, had previously announced at the Tokyo International Anime Fair that the deciding factor to go ahead with the 20th Century Fox live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop was the casting of Keanu Reeves. Reeves made two visits to the studio to express his interest in the project which Uchida states was what made the deal go through. Interestingly enough Uchida noted that negotiations between the two companies went on for two years until it was agreed upon that Sunrise assert quality control. His exact words were, “If the script is terrible, the live-action film adaptation will not be approved.” Perhaps the film will exclude Reeves’ popular “I know kung fu” and “Woah” quotes.
  • Senjō no Valkyria -Gallian Chronicles- promotional video from the Tokyo International Anime Fair is streaming at the official website. The video game sounds interesting, but since I’m too lazy for video games these days hopefully the anime will be a good substitute.
  • FUNimation and GDH have announced a strategic alliance in which FUNi will stream its current and future works on their official website. There will also be a download to own feature on their site and others yet to be announced.
  • Tact Aoki is directing The Asylum Session 3D, a 60-minute 3D computer-animated film, that’s scheduled for release in two theaters this summer in Tokyo and Osaka.
  • Kazuya Minekura announced that her current manga project Saiyuki Gaiden will end this May.
  • This July Kadokawa Shoten plans to launch a new magazine entitled Young Ace and it will see the return of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto‘s Neon Genesis Evangelion, MPD-Psycho, Summer Wars, and Nagato Yuki-chan no Shōshitsu.
