Japanese entertainment news website Comic Natalie began streaming a 25-second clip on Thursday from the live-action film of Kei Sanbe‘s Boku dake ga Inai Machi (The Town Where Only I Am Missing) manga. The scene features Satoru (played by Tatsuya Fujiwara) and Airi (Kasumi Arimura).

Airi: I wasn’t able to do anything for him with my small hands. I want to believe you for my own sake. I want to think there is something I can do with my own hands.

The Phenomenon of Utopia Inside Anime

szbsbgdb dfUtopia – a perfect world, something that people long for and yet never seek because it’s impossible.  Anyone who even attempts to create a utopia nowadays will probably be scoffed at and scorned for their naive idealism.  And yet, it still fascinates us, this impossible concept.  And though it might not be realistic to dream that we will be living in a ‘utopia’ anytime soon, we can still recreate it in our dreams and fantasies.  And thus, this is one of the concepts most prevalent in the plots of several anime series: the quest for the famed and fabled utopia.

The anime that first comes into my mind when I hear the words ‘utopia’ and ‘anime’ in a single sentence is Deathnote.  Yagami Light, the main character, was someone who was disillusioned with how horrible the world has become, with its ever increasing crime rates and the ever worsening condition of the society.  But when he got hold of a deathnote, a notebook which he could use to kill anyone he wants to as long as he knows the person’s name and face, he started using

The Differences Between Anime and Cartoon

ebfnmfjhbtjCartoon is a term that once referred to fine art during the renaissance period. Somehow, though, the term’s meaning evolved (or devolved, depending on how you look at it) into humorous and witty illustrations and, finally, into animated programs meant to entertain people, mostly children. For, clarity, the term ‘cartoon’ in this article shall be referring to the animated programs. Recently, however, a new term has been coined: Anime. And the distinction between these two has caused much confusion.

Strictly speaking though, there should be no distinction between anime and cartoon. Anime is a term used by the Japanese to refer to animated cartoons, from their own country and from others as well. Somehow, though, the world started using the term anime in reference to Japanese cartoons exclusively. Japanese animation was once called japanimation, but this term was aptly discarded when the term ‘Anime’ was put into use.

Some say that they see absolutely no difference between the two, even going so far as to classify both cartoons and anime as ‘childish’ because of the nature of how they

Hidden Messages Inside Anime

20-of-the-best-anime-series-ever-created-3Anime is one of the best things that could possibly happen to television. Since its debut outside Japan, anime has reeled in millions and millions of fans. However, there are those that remain skeptical of anime, thinking of it only as a glammed up version of the typical cartoons that we see on TV. They take one look at the too perfect faces, the out of his world costumes, and the quintessential talking animals and they immediately dismiss anime as childish. Well, we as watchers of anime know that there’s much more to anime beneath its cartoonish facade.

There are several hidden messages in anime, messages that speak directly to the soul, messages about life’s lessons and truths. They might be hard to see at face value but if you look past all the humor and all the drama, you’ll see that what the characters are going through, be it a robot invasion or one-on-one battle with a dragon, are essentially the same things that we’re going through… just translated into fantasy. And every obstacle they

There’s a new hero in town! “My Hero Academia” is a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class!

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little

How would you rate episode 10 of Haruchika Haruta & Chika ?

The most rewarding episodes of HaruChika are those that manage to move the regular plot forward along with the mystery-of-the-week. Usually it’s a quieter interpersonal drama, focused on the core feelings and struggles of our cast. This week, we get a much bigger push forward for everyone: the band competition! The brass band club is ready to prove itself in the B group, and they’re not the only ones.

Both Chika and Haruta have recently sustained injuries. Chika’s was due to a daring rescue of a little boy from a tall apartment building, and Haruta got his from an ordeal with a cat. When Haruta goes missing—and Chika disappears in search of him—she runs across a reporter, wondering if he’s there to hear about her ordeal. He does want to talk to her, but not about that. No, he wants to find out from the students themselves about the teacher they love so much, Mr. Kusakabe.

Leading up to that moment, we get lots of fun rapport between the club members, deepening what we’ve previously learned about them. Narushima becomes the keeper of the club when Haruta and Chika are off on their weekly adventure, and Serizawa hovers around

How would you rate episode 4 of ERASED ?

Satoru set up a whole bunch of rules for himself regarding his heroic journey into the past. Most of these rules related to his new friendship with Hinazuki, and how it would end up saving her. Become friends with Hinazuki, and she’ll no longer be a target of the serial killer. Invite her to your party, and she’ll have a reason to stay alive. Keep her safe past X-Day, and the future will be changed. Change just one thing, and that will inevitably lead to a better tomorrow.

For most of this episode, Satoru isn’t punished for embracing these arbitrary beliefs. His attempts to get closer to Hinazuki generally work, and when he isn’t able to personally get his way, his mom steps in to help him. Satoru’s friends help him find time alone with his “crush,” and his pushy demands don’t seem to bother Hinazuki. A trip to the local museum presents some temporary anxieties, as Satoru realizes his current journey is actually overlapping significantly with the events of the past; but then his friends arrive, and Satoru assures himself that the path of history has been changed. And when X-Day passes and Hinazuki waves a fond goodbye after the

How would you rate episode 5 of ERASED ?

ERASED took an unfortunate step down this week, in an outsourced episode that demonstrated few of the show’s great strengths and all of its weaknesses. It was propelled largely by base plot beats over atmosphere, and what scenes weren’t more or less inert in terms of direction tended to oversell their drama. It’s difficult for any show to maintain consistent polish from first episode to last, but it’s never a fun thing to see.

In the wake of last week’s unexpected absence, Satoru ended up running over to Hinazuki’s house, where he found that she wasn’t in the shed, but that an adult man had visited it some time in the last day. Following that, a couple shots from inside the house gave the game away: Hinazuki was already dead, her parents were likely responsible, and they were unsure of how to deal with the situation. It’s beginning to seem likely that Hinazuki’s situation might have just been “conveniently” close to the serial killings time-wise, and that her parents only got away with murder because of the other killer on the loose.

The next few scenes of the episode played out just like Satoru might have expected, with all of
