"Shin Ultraman", filmed by the "Shin Godzilla" duo, Anno Hideaki as planner/scriptwriter, and Higuchi Shinji as director, will be released in early summer 2021.
Also, a statue of "Shin Ultraman" has been revealed during the opening ceremony of Sukagawa Tokusatsu Archive Center in Fukushima, which was held on November 3. Anno commented on the opening of the facility.
Sukagawa Tokusatsu Archive Center was established to collect, store, repair, research, and study the special effects developed by Tsuburaya Eiji, a.k.a. the "god of tokusatsu" (special effects), who was from Sukagawa city, and the valuable materials related to his work, so the citizens can honor and promote tokusatsu culture.
The movie "Shin Ultraman" is still in production, but the statue was revealed on this day thanks to the high pace of work, at the request of Anno and Higuchi, to make it ready by the opening of this facility.
The statue is about 2 meters tall, which is 1/33 the height of the Ultraman from the film. He is taking his signature "Spacium Beam" pose, giving this statue a powerful presence as if it is about to fire the beam.
The Ultraman in "Shin Ultraman" was created based on the original design by Narita Tooru to depict the true form of Ultraman, and recreate the beauty of Ultraman as much as they can.
On the unveiling, Anno commented, "I think it's perfect as the face of Sukagawa Tokusatsu Archive Center," and Higuchi happily stated, "We worked hard on the details, so I'd like everyone to take a good look at it, especially the ears!"
The "Shin Ultraman" statue is scheduled to be displayed at Sukagawa Tokusatsu Archive Center until spring 2021.
The latest film of "Rebuild of Evangelion", "Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time", will soon be released. (The release date has been delayed from the initial Jun. 27, due to the novel coronavirus) It has been 8 years since the last film, "Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo". Let's go over the unsolved mysteries and differences from the previous pieces of work. Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone This film is set in Japan, 15 years after the unprecedented catastrophe known as the "Second Impact", which killed half the population on earth. Ikari Shinji, an introvert 14-year-old, gets dragged into the war against the giant life forms called "Angels". At first, he doesn't even know how to interact with other people, but through the fearsome battles as a pilot of the Multipurpose Humanoid Decisive Weapon, Evangelion, he grows and begins to build relationships with his boss, Katsuragi Misato, and another Eva pilot, Ayanami Rei. Shinji belongs to NERV, which is run by ZEELE, and the mysterious "Human Instrumentality Project", conducted by the two organizations, begins to reveal itself. The story up to "Operation Yashim" from the 6th episode, "Showdown in Tokyo-3", of the initial TV series, has been depicted with even more intensity and on a larger scale. The smile of Ayanami Rei, when Shinji says "You should try smiling," after the project, has again captured the hearts of many fans. The differences from the previous TV series. Most of the development in "1.0" follows the steps of the previous TV series, but there are some differences. For instance, in the former series, the story was specifically set in the year 2015, but in "1.0", it is only said that it has been 15 years since the "Second Impact" and they do not mention a specific year. Also, the giant humanoid life form, "Lilith", which is hidden in the NERV headquarters, makes an appearance a lot earlier than in the TV series. The first Angel they encounter in the 1st episode was the 3rd Angel, but in "1.0", it is the 4th Angel. Visually, the blue ocean in the previous series has been colored red in the Rebuild series. Another difference you can't miss is that Kaworu, who only appeared in the very last of the TV series, has already made an appearance. Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance Unlike "1.0" which was mostly the same as the TV series, "Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance" makes its original developments. A new pilot from Germany, Shikinami Asuka Langley, joins Shinji and Rei, and fight against the Angels, building new relations. Rei, who didn't show much emotion in the previous film, trying to change herself, such as her saying "I feel warm when I'm with Ikari-kun," and organizing a dinner party for Shinji, are some of the best scenes of the film. The film depicts the plans of NERV and SEELE advancing at the cost of the children. Shinji resists against his father, Gendou, and refuses to ride Eva. However, he gets back on to rescue Rei and becomes the trigger of the "Third Impact". The story from episode 8 to 20 of the TV series has been drastically changed. One of the biggest surprises for the fans must have been the new function of Eva, secret code: "The Beast". The pilot's eyes change color showing the pilot losing control as Eva changes into a beast-like form. Becoming more compatible with battle, it raised the heat of the battle scene towards the end of the film. Also, by playing the famous folk song "Tsubasa wo Kudasai", right before the "Third Impact", it gives the scene a majestic feeling. The differences from the previous TV series. The biggest change was the appearance of the new Eva pilot, Makinami Mari Illustrious, who wasn't in the former series. (She did make an appearance in the manga adaption) Her words, such as how she calls Shiji's father "Gendou-kun", as if she knows him well, are very meaningful, making her a mysterious character. Fans were also surprised that Asuka, who is as popular as Ayanami Rei, had her name changed. (She used to be called Souryuu Asuka Langely) Also, story-wise, her role has been changed, as she becomes the pilot of the testing of Unit-03, which formerly was piloted by Shinji's classmate, Suzuhara Touji, in the TV series. The biggest surprise was the new function of Eva, secret code: "The Beast". Somehow, Mari knew about this ability that even the general NERV staff didn't know. Also, they added a new scene where they show Evangelion Mark.06 being assembled at NERV's Moon Base, and Kaworu getting in. Unsolved Mysteries. There has been a change in the role of Misato's ex-boyfriend/triple agent, Kaji Ryouji. He brings the Adam sample for Gendo in the TV series, but in "2.0", he instead brings him a mysterious item called "Nebuchadnezzar's Key". The new character Mari also has many secrets. Since she knew about the secret code "The Beast", and says meaningful things, she may know more secrets about NERV and Gendou than Misato and the other characters. Though there are many mysteries left, such as the true intentions of SEELE and Gendou, which seem different, and how they are involved with the "Third Impact", the story had made a significant development, raising the expectations of the fans to the max. Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo Unlike "1.0" and "2.0", "Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo" developed a completely original story of the "Rebuild" series. It is set 14 years later from "2.0", where the opposing organization of NERV called WILLE, which Misato and Asuka now belong to, kidnaps Shinji, who had put to sleep. Shinji, who has no idea of what happened in these 14 years, decides to go with Rei (actually a clone of her) who attacked WILLE with Evangelion Mark.09. He meets Gendou at NERV's headquarters, which has fallen apart, and is told to ride Evangelion Unit-13 along with Kaworu. Shinji feels a moment of peace being with Kaworu, but despairs once he is told that the "Third Impact" was triggered by him and the world has been destroyed because of it. Kaworu tells Shinji to ride along in Unit-13 to redo the universe, but Asuka and Mari have come to NERV headquarters to stop them. When Kaworu dies in front of Shinji because of Gendou's tricks, it almost triggered the "Fourth Impact". In this film, Asuka, who was severely injured in "2.0", returns with outstanding performance. She fights at the forefront to retrieve Shinji as one of the main members of WILLE and goes into beast mode to stop the enemies at the battle to prevent the "Fourth Impact". She acts as the hero of the film who saves Shinji even though she is sick of his moping around. One of the main attractions of this film is the battles between Evas. The fight between Unit-02 Revised and Unit-08 against Unit-13 and Mark.09 is something never seen in the previous 2 movies nor the former TV series. You also don't want to miss the scene where Shinji and Kaworu bond through playing the piano together. The beautiful music and images are very emotional, and displays why Shinji trusts Kaworu even more convincingly than in the TV series. More mysteries. It has been 14 years since the events in "2.0", leaving us with even more mysteries. What happened during the 14 years? Why is Misato standing against NERV? How did Asuka return from her injuries? Why haven't the Eva pilots grown older? Why did Asuka refer to these reasons as "Eva's curse"? What happened to "Nebuchadnezzar's Key" and Kaji Ryouji who brought it? There are so many mysteries yet to be solved. Gendou's intentions are also still a secret to us. We went over the 3 movies while comparing them to the former series, but it's difficult to anticipate the conclusion with so many mysteries left unsolved. Will all of them be solved in "Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time"? Sadly, the series is coming to an end, but at the same time let's look forward to the day of seeing the conclusion of this grand saga. (C)Khara (C)Khara / Project Eva.

The design and logo of "Ultraman" from the film "Shin Ultraman" have been released at the opening ceremony of "TSUBURAYA CONVENTION 2019", the largest event of Tsuburaya Production held on Dec. 14.
February 5 is twins day, this comes from the Japanese play on words "Fu (2) Tago (5)" (twins). There are many twin characters in anime works. Many of the characters look exactly alike, and when they stand together, they look twice as cute. But in fact, their personalities may be opposites, or they may appear to be good friends but hide a deeper relationship. ......! In this article, I'll focus on the relationship between the twins. ■"Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World" Ram and Rem When Natsuki Subaru dies, time rewinds to a few days before his death through an ability called "Return by Death" (Shinimodori). The main character, Natsuki Subaru, uses this ability to overcome difficulties. The maids working at the Rosewall mansion, where the severely injured Subaru takes refuge, are the twin sisters, Ram and Rem. They are almost the same height and have short haircuts that cover one eye. However, the difference between the red-haired Ram and the blue-haired Rem is obvious at a glance (and by the way, one of the sister's breasts are also larger!) The twins look cute in their gothic maid outfits, but they are actually demons. Rem, in particular, is not as cute as her adorable appearance, but she has a high level of fighting ability that allows her to kick away demonic beasts with her spiked iron ball (Morning Star). The twins, Ram and Rem, are expected to share the household chores of the Rosewall mansion, but ...... most of the work is done by Rem. Ram doesn't work much. On the other hand, Ram has a caring side that uses picture books to teach Subaru letters, but the reason for teaching him is because "if Subaru learns to read and write, Ram's work will be reduced"! Although Ram has a tendency to slack off a bit, Rem has absolute trust and the highest regard for her sister Ram. She is not only good at cooking, but also at cleaning and laundry, even though she asserts that she is better at it than her sister. The reason for this is connected to her distant childhood past. Her older sister, Ram, was a genius girl who excelled in the demon tribe from a very young age. On the other hand, Rem, who was a dropout, was in the opposite position as the present, being compared with her superior sister and feeling narrow-minded. In the meantime, the village of demons is destroyed by a witch cult attack. Ram struggles to fight alone, but her horn, the source of the demon's strength, is broken off. At that moment, she speaks out her dark true feelings that lie deep inside of her. ...... "It is finally broken." Rem feels happy, even if only for a moment, that her good friend and favorite sister has lost her demon powers. As she continues to blame herself, Rem decides to dedicate the rest of her life to redeeming herself to Ram. "I should be able to do everything that my sister could do for me from now on. My sister would have done this. She's better than that. She can do better. If I can't even do that well, I'm worthless." The reason for Rem's extreme self-sacrifice and low self-esteem is sad. But the encounter with Subaru will change Rem. What Ram doesn't have, Rem does. This is the first time I've ever seen such a thing. Subaru's kindness invites her to stop comparing herself to her sister and look to the future. This may be the moment when Rem goes from feeling guilty about Ram to being an equal sister. ■"Jujutsu Kaisen" Zenin Maki and Mai "Jujutsu Kaisen" depicts the activities of sorcerers who exorcise the negative emotions (curses) created by humans. Many people are fascinated by the designs of the evil spirits and the stylish battles. Zenin Maki, one year senior to the main character Itadori Yuuji, is a rare sorcerer who has no spell power at all, despite being in a position to exorcise curses. That's why she wears glasses that allow her to see the curses, and combined with her ponytail, she is a very beautiful woman with a dignified and exuberant look! She is a dependable older sister type (in fact, Itadori's peer, Gisaki Noboru, calls her "Miss"). Maki's sister, Zenin Mai , who is enrolled in the Kyoto school, is the one that Maki and her friends from the Tokyo school of spellcraft technology met at a social event. She has short hair compared to her sister, and uses a series of provocative swear words against Nobara who she's never met before. ...... Although she's a twin, her appearance and personality are the complete opposite of Maki's! Mai also calls her sister Maki "You" and not her name. However the relationship is cooling down. Even in the exchange game, she aims her gun at Maki with hostility. Her sister, on the other hand, intercepted her with a Japanese sword. Yes, even the weapons they use are "swords vs. pistols", and their fighting styles are very contrasting. Maki cuts in half the bullets that Mai shoots with a single swing of her sword. It's a cool thing to see her do, just like Matsuzaki Ginji in "Black Lagoon". You don't have to be Nobara to fall in love with her. The reason for this superhuman physical ability is because Maki has the "Tenyo Juju", which is a spell that allows her to have inhuman physical abilities in exchange for spell power. This is one of the reasons why Mai, who has no talent, is jealous of her sister. But that's a small matter. There's a much bigger reason why she hates Maki so much. The twin sisters were born into the prestigious Zenin family, but were not blessed with any talent in spell casting. Despite the fact that they were both dropouts, Maki and Mai were always holding hands together in their childhood. Maki, however, is a highly ambitious woman who is determined to push forward into the future. However, Maki is an ambitious woman who "pushes forward with her future," and she doesn't like being oppressed, so she leaves the Zenin itation House as if she were half-insulated. Mayori, who was left behind, could not forgive her sister. She carries the frustration of being betrayed and hatred towards her sister. After the battle, when Maki asks her why she left, she says, "You're a liar ....... She hides behind the words "I hate you. Deep down, she still loves her sister. The gap between them may be too deep for them to reconcile right now. I hope to see more scenes of the two of them fighting together, shoulder to shoulder or back to back, against the evil spirits. ■"Higurashi When They Cry" Sonozaki Mion and Shion Mion and Shion are identical twins, with Mion being the older sister and Shion the younger. Mion is the older sister who takes good care of the children and is the leader of the Hinamizawa Branch School where the main character goes to school, but she is also a bit crass. Shion, on the other hand, is a polite girl with the air of a lady. She works part-time at a family restaurant, wearing a cute uniform. When the two girls are together, Shion, who looks mature but is actually passionate, often plays a trick on Mion, who looks delirious but is actually sensitive, but they are basically good friends. However, their relationship is a bit complicated due to their family background. Their family, the Sonozaki family, is one of the three most powerful families in the village, and Shion is the heiress of the family. However, Shion, despite being a twin, is not only not qualified to do so, but is also kept away from the Sonozaki family for one reason or another, and the two live in separate places. In the story, we see how Mion is torn between her position as the heiress of the Sonozaki family and her desire to protect her friends at school, and how Shion becomes emotionally involved, thinking that if she were in Mion's position, she could have handled things better. Even so, it is beautiful and moving to see these two people, who understand each other's position well, encourage each other in the end to face the tragedy. ■"To LOVE Ru: Darkness" Nana and Momo The twin sisters in this work, Nana Asta Deviluke and Momo Velia Deviluke, are the second and third princesses of the planet Deviluke, which rules the galaxy. Nana is a cheerful and energetic girl, but she can be a bit stubborn and childish. Momo, on the other hand, looks innocent and dainty, but in fact she has two sides to her, and is a bit of a black-hearted devil. In this work, Momo is trying to get the girls around her to get together with Rito for the "Harem Plan" to create a harem centered on the main character, Rito Yuki, but Nana is opposed to this. Nana has a conservative and old-fashioned view of love ...... and has very little sexual knowledge, so she is not very good at sex. Momo, on the other hand, wants to be a part of the harem so that she can bond with Rito without having to worry about her sister, the first princess. For this reason, she is always bold in her approach to Rito, and even tries to get her twin Nana into Rito's harem. Nana is conservative and pure-hearted, while Momo is liberal and free-spirited, and even though they are twins, their values regarding love are completely opposite. Even so, Nana and Momo are staying with Rito today, and despite their different values, they live together like kittens playing together. ◆◆◆ The relationship between twins varies. There are incompatibilities and difficult family situations. Even though they quarrel and rebel against each other, deep inside they are thinking about each other. ...... I would like to warmly watch over them. Why don't you pay attention to the "twin" characters and enjoy the anime?

The 1st season of the "Seitokai Yakuindomo" TV series was aired in 2010. And the long-awaited latest film, "Seitokai Yakuindomo: The Movie 2" will be released on January 1, 2021. As part of the promotional campaign, they will be raising funds for advertising costs and merchandise production costs via crowdfunding until November 30. "Seitokai Yakuindomo" is an anime series well known and loved for its high-paced comedy driven by the unique characters and the dirty jokes told by the heroines at a former girl's school. And to nobody's surprise, the main visual of the first film, which was released in 2017, was... Full of corrupt morals! Even the shape of the "vase" on the table was questionable. Because of this style, the reward goods of the crowdfunding to support the film and campaign goods were full of "style". Let's take a look at each of these unique original goods. ■The courses and rewards The project has a total of 5 courses. Moreover, the theater repeater bonus will be improved and there will be additional rewards depending on the total number of supporters. Let's take a look at each of the rewards. First is the "*bleep* Whistle". This is the well-known whistle, which Suzu blows for the "Student Council Regulations" during the cold opening. It's always nice to have an item from the show, which gives you a feel of the world of the work. There is an illustration of Suzu's head on the side of the whistle. Different student cards of 5 characters will be included in each course. Which student card you can get depends on the course you choose. You can put your name on the card if you like, making it a one-and-only official item. *A maximum of 10 letters, and emoji's are not allowed. The next item is starting to push the limits. An "uncensored" script that contains lines that would be bleeped out for regular TV. Coming up next is "Full Nude Movie Storyboard Collection". Though the word "Full Nude" is questionable, it is a valuable item that "uncovers" the work. The staging and its intentions are all written in, so it will help you understand the scenes even further, for example, the reason the student council principal smiled in a certain scene. Next is a T-shirt, which is surprisingly(?) fit for everyday use. *There is only one size. (Length: 74cm, Width: 55cm, Shoulder Width: 50cm, Sleeve Length: 22cm) "Ultra-thin" sticker. I wonder, what else is ultra-thin? An unexpectedly stylish "48 Tricks Japanese Tea Cup". A great choice for erotic humiliation. Let's enjoy the risk of using it in front of our families. And last but not least. An entry in the end credits. You have a choice of "Small" and "Super Small". The "Small" size is the same size as the staff, and the "Super Small" size is a bit smaller than that. However, the course that gives you the "Small" entry in the credits has reached its limit, so you can only choose "Super Small". The end credit entry will be valid not only for the cinematic screening but also for the DVD and Blu-ray, making this your dark past... I mean a great memory.

The film "Ganbareiwa!! Robocon", which is the latest installment of the comedy robot series "RoboCon", has been decided after 20 years. It will be released nationwide in MX4D theaters and others in Jul. 31, 2020. "Robocon" is a story of a clumsy robot with a distinctive egg-shaped and red-coated body. It is originally a novel by Ishinomori Shoutarou, who is known as the "King of Manga" for creating numerous characters such as "Kamen Rider" and "Cyborg 009". "Ganbare!! Robocon" was broadcasted in 1975, and quickly became a hit for children by reaching the highest TV rating of 29.2 % along with "Super Sentai" and "Kamen Rider", which were born around the same time. From 1999 to 2000, the unprecedented "RoboCon" boom in Hong Kong came to Japan, and a reboot titled "Moero!! Robocon" was broadcasted. It was a popular family robot series which could be enjoyed by the generation who watched the previous work "Ganbare!! RoboCon", as well their second generation of children. Now that Japan has entered the Reiwa era, the new "RoboCon" is coming back as a movie after 20 years. The title is "Ganbareiwa! RoboCon", which expresses the "gag" by literally combining the words "Ganbare" and "Reiwa". Furthermore, the director Ishida Hidenori and the screenwriter Urasawa Yoshio have teamed up to create the long-awaited film for the first time after 20 years since "Moero!! RoboCon". What kind of slapstick comedy will the new "RoboCon" bring to the era of Reiwa? And how the new film will be expressed through the powerful MX4D? Stay tuned for it!
