today i´d like to focus on the upcoming animation of the prequel to Osamu Tezuka´s fantastic manga/anime Black Jack, called Young Black Jack, that is about to air on october the 1st.
First Episode has already been shown on TBS´s anime festa about a month ago, but is non available internetwise, or quite hard to find if leaked and we´ve been told some new details regarding its cast, that are

Yuichiro Umehara as Kurō Hazama
Koji Yusa as Yabu
Shizuka Itou as Maiko Okamoto
Junichi Suwabe as Military Doctor (later rival)
Akio Ohtsuka
as Narrator

here´s the official trailer with a apart of its opening theme, sung by the duo UMI☆KUUN, called

"I Am Just Feeling Alive":



short summary of 73s manga black jack/ young black jack:

Black Jack is the doctor Tezuka wished he could be, one free of the constraints of the modern rules, who can heal and help on his rules. He travels the world helping those who pay him, sometime those he takes mercy on, and always those who move him. Despite not having a valid license, he is still the doctor of last resort, the only man who keeps the reaper at bay. Sometimes though, he's the one who brings the reaper...

Main focus lies here on Tezuka´s early days as a brilliant, but headstrong medical student in the 60s and on the incident(s) that later would´ve a great impact on his personal viewings of the world - ultimately leading to him becoming the mercenary Black Jack (Kurō Hazama).

- Mere Humans, brave yourself to the fullest as the era of awesomeness draws near! -

Today Studio Polygon Pictures (Sidonia no Kishi) proudly announced an upcoming anime adaption of Tsuina Miura´s (!!!) and Gamon Sakurai´s godlike manga "Ajin - Demihuman (亜人)", which is supposed to start airing on Januar 2016. After the recent news of them having plans for making a movie trillogy, this one´s like a critical blow right into the face - hopefully bringing an end to the dystopian reign of literary mediocrity.

As of now there´s not much been mentioned, aside from it mainly focusing on the detailed story itself, providing a better insight regarding the world the plot takes place - means we can somewhat safely assume it´s going to follow the source material pretty closely.

Short summary:

Seventeen years prior to the actual story, the first immortal appeared on an african battlefield. Later, rare, unknown new immortal lifeforms began appearing among humans, and they became known as "Ajin" (demi-humans). Just before summer vacation, a Japanese high school student named Kei Nagai is instantly killed in a traffic accident on his way home from school. However, he is revived, and a price is placed on his head.

With his best friends Kaito´s assistance both struggle to escape from the authorities, who are performing gruesome experiments on the Ajin. In the process Kei tries to understand his role in the smoldering conflict between humankind and the Ajin, as well as the nature of his eerie companion, only he´s seemingly able to see...

The Staff and Cast are identical with the one in the movies:

Story: Gamon Sakurai (Sidonia no Kishi)

SAO getting a movie .__.

 

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-10-04/sword-art-online-anime-film-project-revealed/.93768

 

I don't know what my reaction should be. Whether to be happy that sao fans would get more of the same stuff or just be sad and angry about how capitalism turns human beings into faceless commodities whose only purpose, as viewed by the entrepreneurs, is to generate more profit for them in every possible way inside or outside of metric realms. Each of us now only viewed as 'resources', are dangerously influencing fellow sentient blob of meats into participating on this huge brainwashing program designed by or usually called economy where the 'resources' are just lifeless slaves naturally inclined to work to death metaphorically while the owners or the people with true power and liberty just agonize themselves to death about how to make more money as they become more of an entity than an identity with each profit gained proving my theory again that no one really wins at the end so be sure to watch Fight Club and think of it as a 2.31667 hours of clusterfuck processed on some colour print films only to realize later from all the countless dissected and analysed reviews of it that it actually is a critic of psychological warfare disguised as our modern economy and only three options are presented to us by our logical minds after realizing that.

To blow up all those conglomerates like in the movie but on a much larger scale digitally and physically.

To watch SAO movie.

Or...to just sit around reading and realizing stuffs on the net and do weird things like me...

Koe no  Katachi apparently will get an anime film adaptation

Seeing the actual manga is already depressing enough I'm not really confident my heart is ready for this
