Taku Takahashi, Teddyloid, & DAOKO To Attend Anime Weekend Atlanta 2017


 
Anime Weekend Atlanta 2017 is turning out to be a very big year as they recently announced two more special music guests to attend the convention this year in September. It was announced via AWA's Facebook page that Teddyloid & DAOKO will be attending the convention along with recently announced guest ☆Taku Takahashi (Taku was announced back on May 22nd).
 
Taku Takahashi rose to fame as the DJ/Producer of the J-pop music group “m-flo". ☆Taku Takahashi also served as supervisor to the soundtracks for the hit Japanese anime “Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt”, and made waves in the music industry for his work with the drama/movie ‘’Nobunaga Concerto’’. In addition to all of these incredible credits, ☆Taku Takahashi did production work for Space Dandy and Square Enix's "Figureheads".
☆Taku Takahashi is the founder of Japan’s first and only Dance Music Radio Station “block.fm”.
TeddyLoid started his career as MIYAVI’s DJ and sound producer by joining his world tour when he was only 18 years old. He also produced the OST for the GAINAX anime “Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt” with ☆Taku Takahashi(m-flo). He has also had experience in units with Shibasaki Ko and DECO*27, established galaxias!, worked on the album “TOXIC” for the GazettE, and has produced “Neo STARGATE” for Momoiro Clover Z,. In 2013, TeddyLoid had a guest appearance at Seibu Dome Taikai. Furthermore, he has provided BGM to the anime “Mekakucity Actors”.
TeddyLoid has also produced Vocaloid IA tracks and remixes, Square Enix’s “Mugen∞Knights”, and WRECKING CREW ORCHESTRA’s, new long production “SUPERLOSERZ SAVE THE EARTH”, directed by Amon Miyamoto. In 2014 he produced the music for the short film “ME!ME!ME”, which was visualized by Hibiki Yoshizaki and vocals sang by DAOKO.
TeddyLoid debuted as a solo artist by releasing his EP from King Records’ EVIL LINE RECORDS in August 2014, “UNDER THE BLACK MOON” and his first album “BLACK MOON RISING” in September. In summer 2015, he started “Momoiro Clover Z×TeddyLoid Remix Project” and released an official remix album, “Re:MOMOIRO CLOVER Z” . In Momoiro Clover Z’s big summer event “Momoshinsai 2015”, he performed the opening act as DJ.

The guests included big names like Tetsuya Komuro, Yasutaka Nakata, HISASHI from GLAY, KOHH, and more.
In 2016, TeddyLoid produced two tracks for HAL College of Technology & Design, one of which titled “Daisuki with TeddyLoid” was a commercial with Hibiki Yoshizaki and vocals by DAOKO. The contrasting track “Daikirai feat. Chanmina” also garnered attention for featuring the up and coming Korean rapper Chanmina.
TeddyLoid also created the opening track “Red Doors feat. Yoshikazu Mera” for this summer’s new anime, 18if. This September, TeddyLoid will perform at the world-renowned EDM festival ULTRA JAPAN 2017.
DAOKO is a rapper/singer born in Tokyo in 1997. After uploading videos of her tracks to Nico Nico at the age of 15, her popularity led her to release her first album in 2012, titled “HYPER GIRL – Mukougawa no Onna no Ko.” At 16, she was propelled further into the public eye by her collaboration song “IRONY” with the legendary unit m-flo. The track was selected as the theme song for the movie “Taka no Tsume.”
In 2014, DAOKO sang her 3rd hit which made her mark around the world: “ME!ME!ME!”, with music produced by TeddyLoid and short film by visual artist Hibiki Yoshizaki. The following year DAOKO signed to the renowned label TOY'S FACTORY and released her self-titled major debut album. DAOKO reunited with TeddyLoid and Hibiki Yoshizaki to create a commercial for HAL College of Technology & Design with the track “Daisuki with TeddyLoid.”
DAOKO's work with anime tie-ups includes the opening song “Kakureba” for The Dragon Dentist, “Haikei Goodbye Sayonara” and “Cinderella step” for Rage of Bahamut: VIRGIN SOUL, and “Uchiage Hanabi” with Kenshi Yonezu for the movie Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom?. Her newest release, “Forever Friends” is a cover of the original track from the 1993 original release of the film Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom?.

GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match - Game will be released in Asia with English subtitles at the end of the year

Bandai-Namco announced that will release GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match for PS4 in Asia region with English subtitles.
That is, the game will be available in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Maylasia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia) in both digital and physical format during Japanese Winter in 2017.
Therefore, in case the game is not released in the West, there is an option for who wants to play in English.
 
From this news has been created a rumor that the game will be launched in the West. Note that English subtitles do not mean that the game will reach America or Europe, but rather that the developer chose English instead of localizing the game in each Asian country in their respective language.

Examu Launches Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars Kickstarter for PC [UPDATED]

UPDATE #3: As of today, the Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars Kickstarter has finally reached the next stretch goal. The new additional character code named "Shark Girl" is funded and will be added into the Steam port of the game as DLC. Shark Girl will be released sometime in the summer of next year.
 

 
UPDATE #2: Examu has recently added new backer tiers and have shown off all of the stretch goals for Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars. These stretch goals include adding Parace 'L Sia, the arcana of life, as a selectable arcana along with balance changes and 3 new additional characters. Each character doesn't have official names so their code names go as followed:
 
Shark Girl (her arcana will be Parace 'L Sia) Dark Heart (with Dark Heart Giest) Omega (she will be the final boss of a completely new storyline in the game if the stretch goal is met)
Examu added an additional final stretch goal which remains hidden as of right now. The kickstarter currently sits at $174,999 as of this posting, making the first stretch goal for Parace 'L Sia & balance changes unlocked. The next stretch goal is to make Shark Girl a playable character which sits at $260,000. We'll update more as the kickstarter advances. There are only 15 days remaining till the end of the Kickstarter.
 
UPDATE #1: As of this posting, EXAMU has met it's Kickstarter goal of $100,000 with the current donation standing at $119,131. Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars will now be heading to Steam this Winter. Preparations for the additional character stretch goals are currently in process and Examu will have another update regarding the first stretch goal this week. Congratulations to Examu on achieving the initial goal!!
 
:: ORIGINAL STORY ::
Examu has launched it's long planned Kickstarter for the crowdfunding of Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!!!, the third iteration of Arcana Heart 3, to be released for Steam (PC) on Wednesday (July 5th). The campaign goal that Examu has set for this Kickstarter is at $100,000 and as of this posting, the current donation standing is at $65,457 within 3 days. The Kickstarter ends on August 2nd.
 

 
The campaign currently has 3 additional stretch goals which are currently unknown as of right now but it is believed that they are going to help fund the three additional characters that are planned for the home version of Six Stars in which Examu has only shared silhouettes of. No other information pertaining to these additional characters (or if they will have arcanas) is known at the current time. If successful, the development of the game will run till its release in December of this year while the additional characters will begin development next year in January and lead up to their release roughly around to a Summer release.....that's assuming the stretch goals are met for those characters.
 
Those backer rewards for those who help fund the kickstarter ranges from a thank you letter from Takaya Koji (the director of the series), a Steam code for the game release, a digital original soundtrack, a digital illustration book, a physical copy of the Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars, a physical copy of the soundtrack & illustration book, your name being added to the game ending credits, T-shirt, stickers, a certification of appreciation, an original illustration from the artists of the series, and a original drawing of whatever you choose for those who plan to donate the highest tier amount (which is $5,000).
 
 
Examu released Arcana Heart 3 for arcades in Japan for the Taito Type X2 board on December 22, 2009 with the home console port being released on January 13, 2011. Aksys Games released the home version for North America on April 19, 2011 for the Playstation 3 Entertainment System while Zen Project released it on August 19th of that same year but for the Playstation 3 & Xbox 360. The first update to the game, Arcana Heart 3 Love Max!!!!!, released in Japanese arcades on May 8, 2013. This version made changes to character balance as well as change the game HUB design from it's red/black design to blue/white. The following year, the console version saw a release on May 25th for Japan, September 23rd for North America by Aksys Games, & November 20th for Europe by NIS Europe. The Steam port of Love Max!!!!! was released worldwide on September 29, 2015 by Arc System Works (you may recall, we helped with the advertising of the game back at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2015 before it's release......thanks again to Arc System Works). Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!!! was released in arcades in December 2014.
 
Tohru Sakura, the creator and lead writer fo the game series, recently passed away at the beginning of May. Sakurai wrote the scenario for the first Arcana Heart game back in 2006 and continued to write the scenarios for the future games in the series.

  1. This time I pick a translated song lyrics and try to understand the meaning of words and grammar.

    Literal sentence (English) first, literal sentence (Portuguese) second, then the original translation (English), that may be incorrect!

     

    不思議だね いまの気持ち

    Mysterious, is not it? Feeling of now.

    Misterioso, não é? Sentimento de agora. 

    Aren't our feelings right now mysterious?

    不思議 (ふしぎ) - estranho (strange), misterioso (mysterious)
    だね - não é (is not)
    いま - agora (now)
    の - indica posse (indicates possession)
    気持ち (きもち) - sentimento, sensação (feeling, sensation)

    Japanese language has no plural or genre, so kimochi can be interprected as "feeling" or "feelings".

    きもち (feeling) is placed after the particle の, so it belongs to いま (now).


    空から降ってきたみたい

    From the sky, falling it came seems like

    A partir do céu, caindo veio parece

    Like they descended from the sky

    空 (そら) - céu (sky)

    降って - caindo - passado progressivo (falling - past progressive)
    きた - veio - passado indicativo (came - past progressive)
    みたい - como, parece (seems like, looks like)

    から indicates that sky is the starting point where our kimochi fell from.

    So I start my first life blog post at the end of the year huh? Really shows where my priorities have gone when I can make a life blog post but can't keep this site going to save me.

    2016 has been a spiral of good times and bad for me; some of which I somehow wish I could redo over or regret. Some of it are accomplishments (to me) that I'm proud of and hope to build up upon in the next year. The thing about me is that I'm never happy with my current state of life....always wanting something better but I feel that because of where I live, that hinders me from wanting to progress so I end up staying where I am, never to move beyond what I'm doing....always dreaming of what could be, I suppose. I think that's mostly about my current state at my current employer. I want to progress but things that are out of my hands are keeping me from doing so. Because of this, I feel like I want a career change but something not in logistics & manufacturing. Doing this for over 10 years is wearing me out and honestly, I'm bored of it because I'm doing it out of necessity to keep my current state of life, not because I enjoy it.

     

    In my gaming career, I think I'm pretty much done with Street Fighter. In all honesty, I've been sick of it for a long time now because it's all people play in my hometown, with the exception of a handful of people I know that plays other things. I love Koihime Enbu, I love Blade Arcus, I love Nitro+ Blasterz, I love Guilty Gear Xrd, I love Urban Legend in Limbo, I love Aquapazza, I love Arcana Heart, and much more for they make me feel like I'm having fun when playing them because it's something I don't see ALL THE DAMN TIME. Yeah, I play lots of fighting games but I also love MMORPGs and others....but I really don't play sports games (with a few exception....one being 3 on 3 Freestyle Basketball Online). Speaking of MMORPGs, I've officially ended my life in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I felt like I wasn't progressing fast enough and that I was being left behind everyone and even those in my Free Company "Viva Eorzea". Since then, I've been spending a good deal of my MMORPG life in Black Desert Online.....partially because it's Pay-2-Play with no subscription and because it's more action based & life simulation. I play as I want and I'm not too far behind anyone in my guild "Haki". All in good fun, I'll say. Anime Weekend Atlanta in September has come and gone and that - I can say - was one of the biggest accomplishments in my life. Never have I worked with a 3rd party gaming publisher to help promote their games and have them attend the convention to help us. Last year, I did get support from Arc System Works with promoting Arcana Heart 3 Love Max but that was only on a promotional level and they did not attend but this year I worked with Degica Games to have them promote their games with us at the convention. It was really fun to have them there and I really want to thank Nick from Degica for giving us a chance to show off some of their games to the con goers. Hopefully, we can have them back again next year to show even more.

     

    In life, I've gone on a month and half long diet which has done me some good but now I feel as though I'm gaining that weight back so I really should get back to my exercising routine again. This was mostly due to my high blood pressure and weight (I was 219lbs and gone down to 206lbs). Other than that, nothing else eventful has happened. Well, with 2017 knocking on our door in just a few hours, I hope for next year, things will go in a different direction for me but for the better. I hope we all don't burn in hell here in North America with the POS we're going to have as president. We are so screwed.....

     

     

    From everyone and myself at Anime Toshokan, Happy New Year everyone!

  2. It's been a very long time since the last development blog posted and honestly, things have been extremely slow on my end with things pertaining to this website. Everything from designing a original site layout to brainstorming up new features, it's taking a toll on me doing everything by myself. Keep in mind, yes, this has been a solo project for years now since I decided to stop all of the other activities that A-T used to do back from 2003 - 2007. With that in mind, this is currently the mock design of the website look that I came with as of right now. It's still in the planning stage so anything is possible to change as of right now:

    Again, I'm not very confident in myself as of right now with designing this so I'll see how things go for now. As for the ME!ME!ME! themes......those might be scrapped but not because of lost interest but because my style of designing is slightly changing a bit to conform with web design standards and with Invision Power Board (the CMS that Anime Toshokan is powered by).

     

    As for the paid features that was mentioned in this blog title, yes, I will be adding features and upgrades to member accounts as a form of premium account incentive for those who help support the site. Some ideas that are flowing are:

    • Ad Removal
    • Profile Background Music
    • Profile Background Changer
    • Upgrade in upload limits to the gallery
    • Max amount of blogs a member can have will go up
    • Access to a donors only forum

     

    and so forth....again, these are just brainstorms that I'm making at the moment although some of these are actually being tested right now (don't ask me how I'm testing since I'm the only one here). With that in mind, this paid feature will likely be a one-time payment kind of system where if a minimum set amount is donated, you'll unlock those upgrades to your account for life (until you do something to get banned and have to make a new account and do the process all over again). I'm currently not certain how this will go as of yet so I'll keep you all posted. Till next time!
