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 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 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 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.

The track was selected as the theme song for the movie “Taka no Tsume.”

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.

  3. Last "greeting" phrase of Carisa as a merchant: "いらっしゃいませ!買わないんだったらさっさと帰ってくださいね。" いらっしゃい (imperative of いらっしゃる) - to come; to go; to be + ませ (polite form) = inviting someone to enter your shot or to visit it again; welcome かわない (negative present indicative of 買う) - to buy, to purchase だったら (plain form of verb to be, "だ") + ~ったら - suggest something is さっさと - quickly かえて (TE form of 帰る) - to return, to come home, to go home, to go back; to leave + ください (attached to a verb) = leave, please ね - this one is complicated Literal: Please, enter! (いらっしゃいませ)! If you are not buying (かわない + だったら) , quickly (さっさと) please go back (かえてください), okay (ね)? Non-literal: Welcome (いらっしゃいませ)! In case you can't afford anything (かわない + だったら), please come back again (かえてください) soon (さっさと), okay (ね)? She is asking the customer to return to her shop again if he does not have money to buy something now. This is the polite way to say, but is Carisa so lovely with customers? Option two: Welcome いらっしゃいませ! If you are not buying anything (かわない + だったら), please just go back to wherever you came from (かえてください), okay (ね)? She says that when the customer is visiting the shop not to buy, but to admire her beauty. Carisa wants money, not attention, so she asks the customer to leave. It depends on who she is dealing with. Kurt already has two girls to choose a route, so it's very unlikely he is harassing Carisa. Option 1 is my bet! Let's see... Yay! No divergences this time. Very similar to my first sentence - just a different way to translate it. The only detail that is still not clear to me is the "ね" (ne), since it is not present in the translated phrase. Anyway, it's enough.

Today I bring another "greeting" phrase of Carisa: "ようこそ!冷やかしだったら痛い目みますよ。" ようこそ - welcome, nice to see you 冷やかし (ひやかし) - joke; visiting a shop asking the prices and leaving with empty hands だったら (verb + ~たら; in this case, I believe it is the plain form of です, "だ") - verb to be (is) + auxiliar ~tara that means "suggest something" http://www.learn-japanese-adventure.com/japanese-conditional-form-tara.html 痛い (いたい) - painful, sore; difficult, insupportable 目 (め) - eye みます (present indicative polite form of verb みる) - to look よ - "at the end of a sentence to state a strong conviction / At the end of a sentence to articulate a request or suggestion". Honestly, I did not fully understand the use of "yo", but in Snow Halation 見せるよ(miseru yo) means "I will show" or "We will show". Also "namae wo tsukeyou ka" ("Shall I assign a name?"). It is something related to the speaker or whom it speaks to. After thinking a bit I think it means (literally): "Welcome! If I were you, my eyes would be tired of looking at the goods without being able to buy anything." "Welcome! If I were you, would be a pain to my eyes of looking at the goods without being able to buy anything." "Welcome! I see your sore eyes of looking at the goods without being able to buy anything." I'm not sure of which is correct, if one of them is, but I am more inclined to the first two options due the presence of "dattara" (suggest to be). How the translation team dealt with this sentence: "Bem-vindo de volta. Sou uma visão para olhos cansados?" (Sou algo agradável de se ver?) ようこそ = welcome back, okay The rest is a bit... weird. How I think they translated this sentence taking in account the definition of each word: 冷やかし - one of the meanings of hiyakashi is joke. It is not present in the translated phrase but indicates that what she is saying is a joke(?) いたい + 目 - sore eyes みます + よ - in this case I suppose it does not mean that she (the speaker) will do something ("I will look"), but that she is something to look at, a "sight". Who looks, looks at something or a direction. だったら - verb to be + suggestion; present in the sentence as "am I...?" My translation: Welcome (ようこそ)! Looking at goods without buying (ひやかし) must be (だったら) a pain for your eyes (痛い目), I see (みますよ). Theirs: Welcome back (ようこそ)! What I'm going to say now is a joke (冷やかし): Am I (だったら) for sore eyes (痛い目) a sight (みますよ)? She is a seller, so I can't discard the definition "browse a shop and not buy" for 冷やかし because it is related to the context, but maybe "joke" is also valid. Which do you think is correct? EDIT (07/08): Luiz Rafael from Programa Japonês Online channel explained it to me through a video. Translating to English: Welcome! (ようこそ) If you are only to look (冷やかし+だったら), you're in trouble (痛い目みます), okay (よ)? 痛い = sore 目 = eye みます = to look But... together they mean "be in trouble". Idiomatic expression.
  8. Really wish I knew what it is that people would want out of this site so I can build upon it.......this is getting rather depressing. <_<

  9. Let's get started! One of the phrases we usually hear from this adorable young lady is: "毎度どうもです。神様はお客様じゃなくてお金様ですよね!" Fortunately I know a very useful resource that not only translate texts, but also tells the reading, base of conjugation (for verbs), the class (if it is a verb, substantive, particle etc) and more. http://nihongo.j-talk.com/ Awesome, is not it? Returning to the phrase, I will add some spaces to understand it better: "毎度 どうも です![...]" 毎度(まいど/maido) - each time, always どうも - thanks/hello (it has a lot of meanings) です - polite present form of verb "to be" I will consider as "Thank you!". "神様はお客様じゃなくてお金様ですよね!" 神様 (かみさま)- "Kamisama"; this one is easy, because you probably heard a lot of it while watching anime, right? It means "God" は - particle "wa"; it is written like "na" but is pronounced "wa". Everything that is placed after this particle in the sentence is related to the word that is before. Until now, literally I have "Talking about god" or "Related to god"... お客様 - guest, visitor, customer じゃなくて - this one is complicated. It is easier to understand by the use than theory http://www.tanoshiijapanese.com/dictionary/entry_details.cfm?entry_id=103243&element_id=128958&conjugation_type_id=74 お金 (おかね) - money + さま - polite form to refer to a person (usually). It is weird because money is not a person, but I am not surprised with it since Carisa really likes money! お金さま - okane-sama (Mr. Money ó.o) です (to be) + よね - of course it is The literal translation I can think of would be: "Thank you! God is a customer with money, of course it is." Very strange, is not it? Let's see how the translation team dealt with this sentence: I believe this translation is incorrect because there is a dot separating です and 神様. Now that I think about , the phrase "God is a patron, a source of money" maybe was originated from it, because a "customer with money" or "paying customer" is also a patron (a recurrent/regular customer), a source of something Carisa is so obsessed with: money-sama!
  10. Anime Toshokan has conducted a system upgrade of our content management system (CMS) Invision Power Suite. With this upgrade comes the addition for members to create their own clubs. By now, you should be able to see the "Clubs" link in the header at the top of the site. We will be making guide lines as to what kind of clubs will be allowed to be made on Anime Toshokan as we must still follow the terms of service of our web host. The "Clubs" feature allows members to make their own clubs within Anime Toshokan. Club creators will be able to set privacy settings for their clubs from making open public clubs to invite only clubs. Within these clubs, club leaders will be able to make their own club forums, set event, set club calendars, & more. As the names state, open clubs are open to everyone to join and for everyone to see while invite only clubs are private clubs in which no one can see their activity except club members (& Anime Toshokan staff).

  12. 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 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 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.
  13. :: Nitro+ Blasterz Version 1.08 AC Changelist :: The current version of Nitro+ Blasterz is version 1.08 for the arcade version. The steam version is currently 1.02 but is based on the changes made in the 1.08 arcade version update. The PS3 & PS4 version is currently 1.03 but is based on the 1.06 arcade version update, thus making it not the most definitive version of the game gameplay wise. Here are the changes that have been made in the latest arcade/Steam builds of Nitro+ Blasterz (special thanks to @Jasepi_iidx for the translations for the update): -- will continue --

  18. In this year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine, they will be revealing that the TV anime based on Sakaku Head's manga series "Himouto! Umaru-chan"will be getting a second season. The live-streamed DaraNama Returns program also announced the news on Saturday. The anime's official website and Young Jump posted a teaser promotional video and visual for the season coming this fall (can be found below). The main staff from the series first season is slated to return for the second season, this includes the anime studio Doga Kobo, director Masahiko Ohta, series script supervisor Takashi Aoshima, and character designer Aya Takano. According to the description of the teaser video, the following main cast will be returning to reprise their roles: Aimi Tanaka as Umaru Doma Kenji Nojima as Taihei Doma Akari Kageyama as Nana Ebina Haruka Shiraishi as Kirie Motoba Yurina Furukawa as Sylphynford Tachibana The first televised anime series first premiered in July 2015 and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North America and will release the series with a English dub. The 10th volume of the manga will ship on April 19 and will also be bundled with an OVA (original video animation) DVD which the original TV staff & cast will also be returning for. Sankaku Head launched the manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two chapter Himouto! Umaru-chan version in Miracle Jump in 2012). 2.7 million copies are in print as of March of this year. The manga centers around Taihei Doma and his little sister Umaru, who boasts beautiful looks as well as prowess in both school and sports. However, she has a certain secret. Everyone may think she is the ideal girl, but she is anything but. "Himōto" is a pun on "imōto" (little sister) and "himono," which means "dried fish," but in slang can refer to a woman who is proper in public but lazy at home. The manga inspired the Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan, Himōto! Umaru-chan S, and Himōto! Umaru-chan SS spinoff manga. Himōto! Umaru-chan SS ended on February 28. The manga has also inspired the Himōto!

  19. On Friday, the team responsible for the Dragonball Z inspired fan game "Hyper Dragonball Z" has just released the latest version update called "The Champ's Build" to the M.U.G.E.N powered indie game. With this update comes a slew of changes along with the game HUB, character balance across the whole game, & new stages. Along with the new game version update, the team also released a trailer highlighting which shows off some of the game changes as well as show some of the incoming characters that will be making their way in 2017 like Juuhachigou (Android 18), Krillin, Tien, Majin Buu, & Gotenks: Hyper Dragonball Z is an unofficial Dragonball Z fighting game created to resemble what a DBZ fighting game would look like it if was made by the Japanese game development company Capcom. The game is created by a team of people who create content for the fighting game engine "M.U.G.E.N". M.U.G.E.N. is a game engine that's been around for years that is used mostly to make fighting games which allows people to make their own dream fighting game.....although there is some small programming & designing on the developers part required if you want to make your game. You can download a pre-made game from other developers and play them right off the bat let alone customize them to your liking (again, if you know how). Hyper Dragonball Z is available to download now from the groups facebook page.

  23. Sekirei Returns on May 2

    On the 2nd manga volume of Sakurako Gokurakuin's Brave ☆ Star Romantics, the wraparound jacket band announced on Saturday that Sekirei, one of Gokurakuin's earlier manga titles, will be returning as a regular series. Sekirei will resume in this year's 10th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine on May 2. The advertisement for the manga has teh subtitle "Kanojo no Inai 365-Hi no Koto" (365 Days Without a Girlfriend). It further teases with the tagline "One year with his girlfriend gon. One Year until she returns." In the original story, Sekirei takes place in Tokyo known as Shinoto Teito in 2020. Minato Sahashi, is an extremely intelligent 19 year old yet due to his inability to cope under pressure, has failed his college entrance exam twice. One day, Minato meets a girl named Musubi, who literally falls from the sky. Minato soon learns that she is a "Sekirei" who chose him as her "Ashikabi", one of the mysterious set of humans that have the genetic trait who can make contact - by kissing - with the Sekirei. This binds the Sekirei to him and allows them to use their full power in elemination battles with other Sekirei. Made up of 108 cute girls, buxom women, and bishonen, the Sekirei fight in a competition known as the "Sekirei Project" organized by Hiroto Minaka, the chairman and founder of the mysterious and powerful MBI Corporation. Minato soon learns that being the partner of a girl is not all fun and games, especially when several other Sekirei choose him as their Ashikabi, each also forming a contract with him. Now Minato must find a way to survive both the life-threatening battles of the Sekirei Plan and his partners' fierce competition for him. Gokurakuin had originally stopped the Sekirei manga on August 2015. She began the series in 2004 and the series inspired two anime adaptations in 2008 and 2010. Funimation has released both anime in North America. Yen Press is publishing the Sekirei manga digitally, and will start publish the manga in print in July. Gokurakuin serialized the manga Kaisei no Caricature in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine from September 2015 to December 2016. She was credited with the original idea, setting, and storyboarding, while Hiromu Mogi wrote the story and Sora Goto provided the art. Gokurakuin launched Brave ☆ Star Romantics in November 2015.
