Hotori Days - And Yet the Town Moves Debuts
Posted by: Rai | June 15, 2012
A LOT happening this week. We've got a brand new show for all you anime hungry people out there, a new way to connect with the people who bring you new shows every week, and some anime that we'll be saying goodbye to. All of this and more this week on ANO:
And Yet The Town Moves
Hotori Arashiyama loves mysteries, but there’s one she just can’t solve: Why does the solution to one problem inevitably seem to lead to another? Like how when Hotori has to start working at the Seaside Maid Café after school to pay off a debt and her friend Toshiko fortunately knows exactly how a Maid Café should be run. Which is fortunate since Hotori has no clue. Except that, unfortunately, Toshiko has no interest in working at the café, UNTIL she discovers that Hotori’s childhood friend Hiroyuki is a regular. Which SEEMS fortunate. Except that Hotori doesn’t know that, while Toshiko likes Hiroyuki, Hiroyuki secretly likes Hotori, while Hotori secretly has a crush on… No, no more spoilers! But if that’s not enough drama, there’s work, angst with a certain math teacher, table tennis between her classmates, her younger brother versus the school’s bad girl… And yet, even though everything seems like it’s going to crash at any moment, somehow Hotori’s life keeps going hilariously forward in And Yet The Town Moves!
And Yet The Town Moves ep. 1 - The Fortune Cafe is now playing for free and in HD for everyone. ^_~
After putting away our brick-style cellular phones and stashing our cassette tapes under our desks, we've finally wised up and moved into the Tumblr universe. This week we have a whole new way to keep up with Anime Network with our Official Anime Network Tumblr.
This will be a more casual space for the AN staff and I to goof off in, show you guys some interesting stuffs, and maybe shoot some exclusive things your way, too! Follow us today and see what kind of shenanigans we get up to around here!
Bits & Pieces
• This coming week a trio of shows will be ending their runs on the Online Player: kinda Infinite Stratos (dubbed), A-Channel (subbed), and Familiar of Zero F (subbed). You can catch the first two in their entirety today, and the last this Sunday on ANO, enjoy!
• A couple of English cast lists have made their way into the ether, with Towanoquon and This Boy Can Fight Aliens! both displaying their VAs for all to see. This would be a good opportunity to check out some up and coming VAs in the industry, so check it out!
• Sentai Filmworks finally formally announced the licensing of Hakuoki. After announcing it back in April, I think it was about time! They've also announced the none too surprising acquisition of Children Who Chase Lost Voices. Nice pick ups!
