  • Engage Kiss Anime Series Reveals Second Key Visual, Second Trailer with Ending Theme

    08.June.2022 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    The second key visual and second trailer for the Aniplex/A-1 Pictures series Engage Kiss have been revealed! The series will begin airing on July 2 in Japan. 

     

    The trailer features the first appearance of the ending theme Renai-Nou performed by Akari Nanawo. Six new voice actors have also joined the cast: Akeno Watanabe as Akino Yugiri, Kenichiro Matsuda as Miles Morgan, Yoshiaki Hasegawa as Tetsuya Mikami, Aya Uchida as Shenhua Hachisuka, Saori Onishi as Linhua Hachisuka, and Ryota Osaka as Mihail Hachisuka. 

     

    An advanced screening of the series will take place at Shinjuku Wald 9 on June 22, with more information now available. Engage Kiss will be accompanied by the Square Enix mobile game Engage Kill, which will begin pre-registration this summer.

     

    Comment from Akari Nanawo

    “I’m Akari Nanawo, and I’ve been put in charge of the ending theme for the anime series Engage Kiss.
    The first thing I thought about while preparing for my work was the pink-haired yandere heroine! That’s my favorite!!! And the guy is poor and totally dependent on her! Yikes!!!”
    Engage Kiss has so many highlights, from the moments plucked from daily life to the battle scenes. The ending theme, Renai-Nou (Love Brain), will hopefully help the viewers connect with the character’s emotions–especially the heroines, who are at the hero’s mercy somewhat.
    I hope everyone enjoys it, along with the fast-paced opening theme Everyone, Scramble by Halca!”

  • ‘Oni: The Thunder Gods Tale,’ an Animated Netflix Series Inspired by Japanese Folklore, to Stream Worldwide

    08.June.2022 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE

    Oni: The Thunder Gods Tale, a new stop-motion-inspired animated series, will premiere on Netflix worldwide!

     

    The series will be directed by Daisuke Tsutsumi, who co-directed the 2014 Academy-Award nominated short film The Dam Keeper. Animation studio Tonko House, founded in 2014 by former Pixar art directors Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo, is producing the show. Writer Mari Okada, known for Anohana and The Anthem of the Heart, is also on board.

     

    The first trailer for the 4-episode series has been revealed ahead of its release. Set in a world filled with strange gods and monsters inspired by traditional Japanese mythology, viewers will enter the world of a brave girl named Onari fighting to protect her peaceful village.

     

    Onari is determined to follow in the footsteps of the mighty heroes of lore, but her unique powers are yet to be revealed and her father won’t teach her a thing. Does she have what it takes to fight to protect her peaceful village from the encroaching threat of the gods’ mysterious enemies, the Oni?

     

    The impressive teaser trailer shows off an encounter with the mysterious enemy. Those familiar with Japanese folklore will recognize the tengu, kappa, and dharma running through the mountains.

     

    Oni: The Thunder Gods Tale Trailer #1

     

    Tsutsumi is incredibly proud of the new work. “The story of this girl living between two worlds began as a story inspired by my own life. As production progressed, however, many of the staff members began sharing their own personal stories and passion for this story.”

     

    The cast includes Momona Tamada, Archie Yates, Craig Robinson, Tantoo Cardinal, Brittany Ishibashi, Omar Miller, Anna Akana, Charlet Takahashi Chung, Yuki Matsuzaki, Seth Carr, Robert Kondo, and George Takei. Miyuki Sawashiro, known for her work as Kurapika in HUNTERxHUNTER and Daki in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, will also star in the series.

     

    “This series features my absolute dream cast,” said Tsutsumi. “All of these incredible talents accepted our proposal with such passion and empathy for the story and collaborating with them has been equally humbling and inspiring. They’ve given souls to our characters and unparalleled performances for our animators.”
