Genocidal Organ

This week more information, including a release date for the upcoming anime movie Genocidal Organ was released. It is the final movie in a series of movies based on the works of the late Project Itoh also known as Satoshi Itō (Empire of Corpses, Harmony). Genocidal Organ plays off in the near future where our world now is mostly ruled by either tyrannical surveillance states or ethnic violence and genocide. An intelligence agent named Clavis Shepard (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura) is tracking a dangerous terrorist leader named John Paul (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai), who is set to throw the world into even more chaos.

The movie features animation by the newly formed Geno Studio and is directed by Shukō Murase. The movie was scheduled to premiere in 2015 but was delayed due to Manglobe’s bankruptcy (Manglobe originally animated the movie.) The movie’s cast includes Yūichi Nakamura, Akio Ohtsuka, Kaito Ishikawa, Sanae Kobayashi, Satoshi Mikami, Takahiro Sakurai and Yuuki Kaji. Genocidal Organ hits theatres in Japan on February 03, 2017.

Orange – Mirai

Everybody that wanted the anime series Orange’s story to continue must be excited about the upcoming movie Orange – Mirai (Mirai means Future). A new teaser trailer showcasing this new movie is now online. It highlights the movie’s theme song, also titled ‘Mirai’ which is performed by Kobukoro. The movie will show us its tale from Hiroto Suwa’s viewpoint, containing new material written by Ichigo Nakayama and Hiroshi Hamasaki, which was not published in any manga and was not part of the anime series. The cast and staff that worked on the anime series are all returning for the movie. The movie will hit Japanese movie theatres on November 18, 2016, and run for a limited two weeks.

In the original anime Naho, a second-year high school student receives a letter from her future self. Thinking it is a prank, she soon starts to discover after a few events that are written about in the letter come true, that the letter is a guideline for her to avoid her mistakes in order not to regret her life in the future. One main event she is warned about is that she will fall in love with a transfer student but that he is destined to die when he turns 17. It is up to her to change that destiny.

Ryuk

Ryuk

Ryuk

Everybody knows the ‘real’ star of the Death Note Manga, anime and movies. It is the apple-junky shinigami called Ryuk of course. When he is not busy with his hobby of watching Yagami Light writing up evil people in the Death Note, he apparently likes to sing and dance. In a video released this week, we see the Shinigami performing Piko-Taro’s international hit song ‘PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen’.

All jokes aside, the music video was released to celebrate the success of the latest installment to the Death Note Franchise, the live-action movie Death Note Light up the NEW world. The movie was released on October 29th and earned 458,645,800 yen in its first week. In the music video featuring Ryuk, state-of-the-art technology was used in order to allow the Shinigami to replicate Piko Taro’s dance moves. Here is the original music video as performed by Piko-Taro, followed by Ryuk’s performance.
