Anime Films Heat Up This Winter(剧场版的火红冬日)
The end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 will be heaven for anime fans:there have been so many long-awaited,highly-anticipated films popping up that even a new season of TV anime seems somehow dimmer.With all those well-known names—Macross Frontier,Eden of the East,One Piece,Space Battleship Yamato,Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha,Fate/Stay Night,among many others—how can you ever take your eyes off the big screen?
Here`s one of the reasons that made 2009 so different:it marks the 10th anniversary of One Piece,Eiichiro Oda`s bestselling pirate adventure franchise.As a result,the release date of its 10th film,One Piece Film:Strong World,has been greatly postponed from March to December.Unlike previous films,Oda is personlly overseeing its production.He created a new story about Nami`s leaving Luffy and Straw Hats,and has created hundreds of pages of rough drawings for the film.
Another thing I love about 2009 is Eden of the East.The 11-episode anime wowed me at first sight in April,and has topped my—and most audiences`—list of“best anime in 2009”since then.It keeps reminding me why we just love mystery:when it`s done right,the genre can produce the most captivating and unique stories.
Saki Morimi is in Washington D.C. celebrating her college graduation when she comes across a naked man.The stranger,Akira Takizawa,has no memory of himself.Nor does he know how he ended up in America with eight billion Yen in digital cash in his cellphone.In order to find out the truth,the two return to Japan...
The name Chika Umino promises ultra-creativity since her mange hit Honey and Clover,so I was ready for surprises.But Eden offers more than just surprise.As the story evolves,it also discusses various aspects of today`s reality:terrorism,missile attacks,NEETs(即“Not in education,employment or training”的缩略形式,最早使用于英国,之后渐渐推广到世界各地,指的是一批不升学、不就业、不进修也不参加就业辅导,终日无所事事的年轻人,类似于国内常说的“家里蹲”和“啃老族”。),and the cellphone culture.When the hero faces his final challenge,it`s actually breathe-taking—a feeling that rarely strikes me these days.No wonder the production,which would take two films to conclude the whole story,right at the end of the series.Eden of the East the Movie I:The King of Eden,was shown in Novembe,while Eden of the ast the Movie II:Paradise Lost will open in January,2010.
So 2010 may continue to be a really great year.Besides unveiling all the remaining secrets around Akira,we also have the chance to return to the battlefield of Fate/Stay Night.
In 2006,a war started in order to attain the Holy Grail.Eash Master could call up one Servant to fight.Only the wining pair could be granted the Holy Gral,and any wish they desired would come true.An average boy,Shiro Emiya,accidentally summoned his Servant,Saber.They were immediately drawn into the war...
Type-Moon`s Fate/Stay Night is hugely appraised as the “best visual novel(一种游戏类型,以文字为主,图片和声音为辅,游戏成分不多,玩游戏和在电脑屏幕上看小说差不多。自1996年诞生第一作至今,视觉小说已发展为美少女游戏的常见类型之一。) ever.”Fate,Umlimited Blade Works and Heaven`s Feel are the three branching storylines found within the game.The plot of the TV series has generally followed the Fate storyline.This time,Fate/Stay Night Film:Unlimited Blade Works—as the title itself states—will take the UBW route and center the story of Shiro`s classmate,Rin Tohsaka,and her Servant,Archer.Since I have been Rin`s fan from the moment I saw her—I`m done with all the ordinary-boy-meets-extraordinary-girl stuff—I can`t wait to find out how in the world the studio can finish this complicated route in the length of less than two hours!
