Manga have posted a trailer for their theatrical release of Origin: Spirits of the Past, the first feature film from GONZO. The film goes on limited release on 12 July. An environmentally-friendly sci-fi tale, the movie follows the story of young boy Agito and his adventures with girl from the past Toola. It certainly looks impressive - if the story matches the visuals, we could be in for something special...

Ghost in the Shell 2.0
Upcoming Shows

I'm coming to realise that in some ways, there's no-one who can milk a franchise quite like the Japanese. In advance of the August 2nd release of director Mamoru Oshii's latest work The Sky Crawlers, old stalwart Ghost in the Shell is getting an updated '2.0' theatrical release. The new edition features new CG & digital effects for a number of scenes and a new 6.1-channel soundtrack, courtesy of Lucas Digital's Skywalker Sound. The voice track has also been re-recorded, with most of the original cast reunited for the job - the one major exception being the character of the Puppet Master. Originally voiced by Iemasa Kayumi, the character will now be played by Yoshiko Sakakibara (who played Prime Minister Kayabuki in the Stand Alone Complex TV series). 2.0 hits Japanese theatres on July 2nd - expect an inevitable DVD and/or Blu-ray release in the not-to-distant future...

Feeling the Pull of Gravity

One of these days I'll run out of bad puns to use as post titles. But not today.

Gravitation is the latest series to make its way out of MVM Entertainment, and combines two popular subjects in one show: music, as the show follows the attempts of band Bad Luck to become the latest hot act, and yaoi themes (or boy's-love, if you prefer), as lead character Shuichi has serious sexuality issues to deal with. It's true that the series won't be up everyone's alley (no sniggering at the back, please), but you never know until you see for yourself - so until the review is ready, here are a few promo clips courtesy of VM to give you a taster.

Eureka Seven Movie Spinoff
Upcoming Shows

Eureka SevenI've been enjoying the Eureka Seven TV series recently - better late than never - and now it seems that we'll be getting a feature-length update. Full details are due to be announced in this month's issue of Newtype, but it's expected that leads Renton and Eureka will feature in an 'alternate universe' story with a somewhat different mythos to the TV series. According to ANN, the film will also feature "a new form of storytelling", whatever that means - but if it's as good as the TV series seems to be after the 3 volumes I've seen so far, it should be worth waiting for.

FLCLFLCL (aka Fooly Cooly) is due for release from MVM Entertainment on 28th April (it's been puched back a bit). One of the most mind-bending OVA shows out there and quite possible the only GAINAX production that actually lives up to its hype, it's one of those shows that you really should have in your collection. It's just a shame that it took so long to reach the UK.

To tide you over until the release, MVM have provided a few clips from the show. Enjoy.
