Japanee music producer kz began streaming the animated music video for "Take Your Way," his opening theme song for the Devil Survivor 2 The Animation series, on Tuesday. The song features vocals by Fukase of the band Sekai no Owari, and it is kz's first anime opening theme song under the livetune name.
Kazuya Miura (animation or unit/episode director on Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa, AKB0048, Generator Gawl) directed the animation in the video at NAZ with character designer Eriko Itō (animation designer and director on Devil Survivor 2 The Animation). The overall direction of the video was handled by fantasista utamaro (kotobukisun).
The song's CD single will go on sale on June 5 with the track "Ready for Calming" and the Devil Survivor 2 The Animation insert song "Each and All." The limited first edition will include a DVD with this music video and the opening animation footage from Devil Survivor 2 The Animation. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North America.
So I've decided to buy some large CD/DVD binders to hold most of my DVDs. I just have too many now and they are taking up a lot of space. I'm going to keep my anime and blurays in their cases on shelves, and possibly TV series as well, but I think the rest will go in the binders. I want to keep all the anime artwork I can, and blurays are just too pressure sensitive. I just don't want to risk them cracking or chipping in the books. Read More...
How long is the the free trial period when you order a premium account subscription? And when does the billing cycle start? What days of each month does my card get charged? I can't find this anywhere in the faq or on the subscription page Read More...
It seems the new episode that just went live, Samurai Bride Ep. 03 has an encoding error.
The video starts fine, until here is a vocal track.
It goes to a black screen on the first part the vocal track for the song starts, after that, each vocal track just completely pauses the video, then it starts back up again once there is no vocals.
All the while, there is absolutely no subs.
I've been meaning to bring this up since April, but it kept slipping my mind.
You know, it's been a little over 3 years (04-02-2010) since TAN started its first simulcast with Demon King Daimao.
In these past 3 years, things have changed drasically as far as simulcasting goes.
There's just so much more content being put out these days, simulcast-wise, than there EVER has been before.
Which is an amazing feat, considering the 3-year time frame.
So hats off to TAN!
For making our lives ever more anime filled than ever!
Have a little contest and give the barkeep voice roll to some lucky fan. It's just a couple lines, how hard could it be to find someone to speak them?
LOL, kinda like the contest the dubbers of Patlabor the TV Series ran back in "the day" for a fan to voice Ota's "blind date" (all of which was chronicled, in video, as a DVD extra that I hope Sentai/Maiden managed to preserve on their rescue release)?
Maybe they could get Stephen Foster to do it. His Orphen Outtakes were humorous IMO.
I've heard that Sentai dubs whole series in ~6 hours/actor. With that kind of breakneck speed it would only take them a few seconds to fix the lines in the last volumes and dub the silent bartender.
Sentai, if you do go back and dub it, please do not take out the "color filter" lines. Those were frickin' hilarious. Read More...
