Here we feature Minori Chihara the voice of Yuki Nagato. The first music video is indicative of her normal singing style. This bright and cheery number is only excelled by Minori singing in a rain shower.
The next example is done in the style of the Big Band singers of the 1940’s, here Minori performs Paradise Lost used as the opening theme song to the anime Ga-rei -Zero- in which she voices the main character Kagura Tsuchimiya.
The Disappearance of Haruhi was shown at a mere 24 screens, and 60,306 watched the movie this weekend. Reviews are still mixed but these numbers rank it 7th in showing for the weekend. So you say 7th? Why not first? Simply put anime movies don’t make into the top ten in their first weekend unless they are established franchises. This initial showing proves the fan base is still there. Here’s hoping once the reviews start coming in, the ‘endless 8’ fiasco will be forgotten.
On this episode of Bakacast, we go from super-serious to super-goofy in the span of one LOST episode. First, we use this article on the Akihabara killer as a springboard to talk about…well…a lot of stuff. Then, we discuss Blu-Ray sales going up and what that might mean for our anime collections. Plus, the ASOS Brigade is back with a new voice actress for Haruhi. Finally, we wrap the show up with our finalized impressions on the Silent Mobius movies and a review of the Dirty Pair TV series. Be sure to watch the clean OP that Jon/Ryoko uploaded. It’s disco-riffic and perfectly encapsulates the style of the show.
As we know, Haruhi celebrates all festivals no matter their origin! It has just turned midnight for me… so here I am wishing all of you a Merry Christmas on the behalf of Project Haruhi and our members.
Okay, so we do not yet have a trailer for the up and coming film, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. Instead we have a newly released poster with some character sketches of the main characters in and around the SOS Brigade. Located in the margins, some lucky sod scanned the whole thing in high enough resolution for our viewing pleasure. See the sketches after the jump.
You did not read ‘it’ here first. Nor did you read about it at any other website, such as Cartoon Leap or Anime News Network. In fact, you did not read ‘it’ at all. If you want to know what ‘it’ is, and therefore begin walking the path to further Kyo-ani/Kadokawa uneasiness, then read on…
The up and coming film The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya has been confirmed to have a run time of 150 minutes, a nice respectable number. If this arc was to be in series form, then the movie would be equivalent to about seven episodes, an amount of time that should do justice to the arc (and the smile, see above ^^) we have been waiting for…
The Japanese Cinema release date is February 6, 2010. I officially cannot wait!
Yup, February 6 2010 has been named as the day that the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya film will be released in Japanese cinemas. February is shaping up to be an awesome month, not only because it contains my birthday, but if this movie turns out to be awesome as well, it could be a perfect early b’day present. Then again, a small part of me is afraid the movie is going to flop, with possible budget constraints or any other problems Kadokawa seem so good at digging up. NO! Bad Chris! Have faith in the production company that brought Haruhi to the small screen! Don’t continue to think Endless Eight killed the magic that is Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu!
KyoAni obviously expected the announcement of their Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya film to generate lots of excitement and anticipation. However, the response thus far from the fan community has been underwhelming. Many fans have expressed concerns that the Disappearance arc is far too lengthy for a feature-length production. Other are merely apathetic towards Haruhi in general since the Endless Eight fiasco. However, there are also fans who are cautiously optimistic; they believe that KyoAni learned their lesson, and will produce a quality motion picture that does Haruhi justice.
