Let’s hope this movie shows up globally soon. Crunchyroll has announced some details on the upcoming anime film based on Violet Evergarden. This movie is going to be a spinoff movie based on Kyoto Animation’s anime. The title of the movie is called Violet Evergarden: Spin-Off -Eternity and Auto Memory Doll-. The spin-off film is going to be released on September 6th, 2019. It’s going to be played in Japan in 73 theaters and will run for 3 weeks. It will be directed by Haruka Fujita who worked on the special episode and episodes 1, 2, 5 and 13th episodes.

The CD single is expected to be released on September 4th.
It’s been a week since the horrific arson attack at the Kyoto Animation studios. It’s been confirmed that thirty-five lives have been loss because of the fire. I found this news from Crunchyroll on the status report after the attack. According to Crunchyroll, some of the project works survived. It’s been reported that projects and, production materials and ongoing works have been safely secured in a digital server and the server was safe in a room with thick concrete walls. So this good news for the company that the past and current works of anime is still safe.
President of Kyoto Animation, Hideaki Hatta gave a statement in both languages in regards to the attack:
An unprecedented atrocity has robbed many of our friends and colleagues of their bright futures and has left many deeply injured.
News from all over the world tells us that amazingly many number of people has sent us their hearts and prayers, which are like candles in the darkness, for those of us trapped in the darkness of deepest grief.
There are many friends and colleagues who are hospitalized and suffering, fighting for their lives.
Please give us some time.
We promise that Kyoto Animation will continue to create animation that help people have dreams, hope and impress them.
Kyoto animation will continue to make its employees and staff lead happy lives, and contribute to society and local community.
I assure you that Kyoto Animation will not give up, we will not go quietly into the night…we will not vanish without a fight!
Please give us time.
-Hatta to the fans all over the world
On July 29th, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga held a speech conference in regards to the attack and all the donations given to them. There is going to be a bipartisan coalition proposal in which will help the studios of Kyoto Animation and the victims will be given a tax break. The money received domestically and internationally will be used for the victims and to new animators who wishes to join Kyoto Animation.
This arson attack is a real tradgey that took the lives of innocent people. This company help bring out many lovable anime such as Clannad, Violet Evergarden, Free! and A Silent Voice. With the donations given from all over the world and the works still intact, we can help restore what damaged. We may have lost people, but we should not let their legacy be forgotten. These people created our favorite stories and characters. We need to pray for the familes and friends.
Whether you either a fan of Pokemon for a long time or just wanted to join the trend, Pokemon is a revolutionary franchise that brings people together for fun. Whether you played the games, watched the anime or even played the card games, Pokemon has some kind of magic that attracts them. Thanks to the phone app game Pokemon GO, people are stepping out and exploring the world in order to catch Pokemon. With the new updates, people can be friends by sending friend requests. This allows people exchange gifts and also trade Pokemon. Did you know it can also bring friendship? It’s been reported by Crunchyroll that two well known Shonen Jump manga authors have become friends from Pokemon GO and how the game changed their habits. In a tweet, it’s revealed that it was My Hero Academia author Kohei Horikoshi who befriended One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda. In a tweet, Horikoshi said after he befriended Oda sensei in Pokemon Go, he got inspired to take walks out of his office and take up exercising more for his free time. In his tweet, he sketched out one of the characters from his series. The sketch shows Mina Ashido playing Pokemon GO on her phone. Mina Ashido is a friend and classmate to protagonist Izuku Midoriya and her quirk is the ability to spur out acid.
Vash the Stampede is a wanted man with a habit of turning entire towns into rubble. The price on his head is a fortune, and his path of destruction reaches across the arid wastelands of a desert planet. Unfortunately, most encounters with the spiky-haired gunslinger don’t end well for the bounty hunters who catch up with him; someone almost always gets hurt – and it’s never Vash.
Oddly enough, for such an infamous fugitive, there’s no proof that he’s ever taken a life. In fact, he’s a pacifist with a doughnut obsession who’s more doofus than desperado. There’s a whole lot more to him than his reputation lets on – Vash the Stampede definitely ain’t your typical outlaw.
