I know we’re in the fall line-up, but I’m already looking at the Winter set. In fact, I’m looking at the next year, period. This is the first of a few rant-like posts, but stay with me.
Youko X Boku SS/Inu X Boku Secret Service
At first glance, it looks like some Shana knockoff is hanging out with a bishonen butler…Thank goodness that’s not it. There’s a bit more to this story. The young shana looking girl is Riricho Shirakin, who’s just moved into a apartment complex named “Maison de Ayakashi”. Those who watch Kekkaishi may already be in on the joke but for those of you who don’t know, :Ayakashi: is a general name for things that go bump in the night. Those who dwell in the Apartment Complex are given their own SS (Secret Service Member) and Riricho’s dude is a stud who worships the ground she walks on. He may look like a pretty face, but he’s actually a (Spoiler?) Fox (Spoiler?) This manga is getting an Anime adaptation and will be hitting the silver screen January 2012.
Here’s the trailer:
The manga is online, take a look around to find it. But remember, should it come overseas, support the official release.
The Magic Treehouse
ZOMG. Okay, I used to read the Magic Tree House series when I was like…nine. And lo and behold, it’s so awesome it’s getting a movie over in Japan. If you don’t remember or have never heard about it, The Magic Tree house was a series of books about a brother and sister named Jack and Annie. They travel to different lands and time periods and well, I don’t want to give away how they do it or why, you just gotta read ’em.
So apparently their getting a movie over there. I’m hoping we get a series. And that it comes back over here. And airs on PBS. No, I’m not crazy. Shh. That books series was awesome. Harry Potter fans would like it.
The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra
I’m pretty sure this has been blogged to death but yes, I’m waiting for this series. Of course, its title makes no sense (THANKS A LOT JAMES CAMERON) but this is it, the sequel to Avatar: The last Airbender. Korra picks up a hundred years later, and the Avatar is female, a water bender, a rides a Polar bear/dog thing. Awesome already, I know. The original cast is out of the picture but we get traces of them here and there (I won’t say too much, ’cause then it won’t be fun for everyone else) and the new setting is pretty spectacular.
Here’s the pretty trailer:
Check out, Fall 2012.
The Secret World of Arrietty Official Trailer
A Ghibli movie? In American theaters? Heck yeah. Arietty is based on The Borrowers…You know, that book where tiny people live in your walls and take stuff they know you wont notice missing.Once again, Disney is dubbing Ghibli work and sticking their name all over it. Well, over at Pixar they love their Ghibli, and if it weren’t for them some people would have never heard of Miyazaki, so I can’t be too mad. As usual they’ve hired big names to pull off even the smallest roles in the film, so let’s hope for good voice acting. Even though one of them sounds too old already.
This one will be in theatres February 2012.
That’s it for now. Also, The Mayans are totally Liars.
