Kenjiro Hata estrenará nueva serie manga

El número 32 de la revista Weekly Shonen Sunday de Shogakukan anunciará este miércoles que Kenjiro Hata, autor de Hayate, mayordomo de combate, comenzará una nueva serie manga en dicha revista. Será en el número 40 de la revista, la cual saldrá a la venta en el mercado japonés el 2 de septiembre.

Por el momento no se han desvelado más detalles sobre esta obra, aunque tanto la historia como el título se anunciarán en el número combinado 36-37 de la revista manga, que será lanzada en Japón el 2 de agosto.

Este nuevo trabajo de Hata se compaginará con el manga de Hayate no Gotoku, serie que publica el mangaka actualmente en la misma revista de Shogakukan, por lo que será la primera vez que compagine a la vez dos serializaciones.

Si por un título es conocido Kenjiro Hata es por el de Hayate no Gotoku, comedia que publica desde 2004 en la revista Weekly Shonen Sunday y que cuenta en Japón con 45 tomos. Manga que ha servido de inspiración para cuatro series de televisión animadas, más una película y una serie de tres episodios originales. El manga fue editado parcialmente en España por Glénat/EDT, siendo cancelada tras los primeros 16 tomos por bajas ventas.

Anunciado un nuevo anime de Osomatsu-kun

Osomatsu-kun será adaptado al anime tal como desvela la revista Weekly Shonen Sunday. El clásico manga cómico de Fujio Akatsuka volverá a saltar a la televisión japonesa en forma de serie animada. Próximamente la revista de Shogakukan desvelará más detalles sobre este nuevo anime de Osomatsu-kun.

Para este nuevo proyecto animado de Osomatsu-kun se cuenta en la dirección con Yoichi Fujita, director de varias temporadas del anime de Gintama, mientras que la animación correrá a cargo de Studio Pierrot (Bleach, Naruto, Tokyo Ghoul). Shigeru Matsubara es el responsable de escribir el guión mientras que Naoyuki Asano (Saint Young Men) hace lo propio con el diseño de personajes.

Osomatsu-kun fue publicado en la revista Weekly Shonen Sunday entre 1962 y 1969, finalizando con un total de 34 tomos recopilatorios. Más tarde la obra sería recopilada en 2004 en una edición kanzenban de 7 volúmenes por la editorial Takeshobo. La obra le sirvió a su autor para hacerse con el premio a mejor manga en los 10th Shogakukan Manga Award de 1964.

La historia de esta comedia gira en torno a los seis hermanos sextillizos de 10 años: Osomatsu, Karamatsu, Chyoromatsu, Ichimatsu, Jyushimatsu y Todomatsu. La obra narra el día a día de la familia numerosa Matsuno.

El manga de Osomatsu-kun sirvió de inspiración para dos temporadas de televisión. La primera de ellas fue emitida en MBS entre 1966 y 1967, 60 episodios animados por Studio Zero bajo la dirección de Akira Shigino. La segunda serie animada se estrenó en Fuji TV en 1988 y finalizó en 1989 con 88 episodios, todos ellos animados por Studio Pierrot otra vez con Akira Shigino como director. A esto hay que sumarle un live-action para televisión en 1989.

Man Arrested for Selling Pirated “Love Live!” Badges

A joint investigation team of Ibaraki and Kagoshima Prefectural Police arrested a 44-year-old man from Kagoshima-city, who self-proclaimed as an online retailer, on suspicion of copyright infringement and trademark infringement on July 6. According to the police, the suspect sold 13 badges using the character images and the title logo of the popular anime series Love Live!, which were made without the permission from the copyright holder, on a famous online shopping site on April 3. Sunrise, the copyright holder of the franchise, already found his crime in March and had reported it to the police.


He has admitted the charge and said that he earned 500,000 yen (about 4,000 US dollars) in a month at the busiest time. The police found about 700 pirated badges at his house, and suspects from the records of his bank account that he earned over 2 million yen (16,300 US dollars) between the end of the last year and this April. Though the legitimate items are made of metal and have been sold at the price of 600 yen for one, he offered the fake ones made of plastic at 1,280 yen for the set of four.


This is the first arrest case for pirated Love Live! merchandise in Japan.

Masumi Ishikawa Creates Limited Edition “Star Wars” Ukiyo-e Prints

Japanese artist Masumi Ishikawa has overseen the creation of a trio of officially licensed Star Wars prints in the classic ukiyo-e style. The prints feature Darth Vader, the Battle of Hoth, and Queen Amidala:





Ukiyo-e is a painstaking process that requires a different carved wooden block for each color used. These prints required more than 30 passes to achieve their unique look. The video below demonstrates part of this creative process:



The total print run of the Star Wars ukiyo-e is limited to 100 pieces each. As of July 03, 2015, the individual Darth Vader prints and the sets that combine all three prints together are now sold out. At the time of this writing the Hoth prints and the Queen Amidala prints are still available in limited quantities for 54000 yen ($440.83 US) apiece including tax.


More information can be found at the official Japanese home page here.
