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. In December, he released his first collaboration product with 12 tracks and 14 sets of guests on “SILENT PLANET” as his original 2nd album. 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?.
AWA 2017 marks DAOKO's first-ever appearance outside of Japan, where she will be performing alongside TeddyLoid.

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. This news is about covering other countries outside Japan while not leaving Asia.

Anime Toshokan Update - July 31, 2017


 
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).

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.

  2. It's with deep regret that as of March 9, 2017, Anime Toshokan Inc. will officially close down our IRC channel on Rizon. We say this because it has been a staple within Anime Toshokan dating back to when our site was originally called "AIC World" and because of the long history it has with our group. This decision was made due to the inactivity of the channel and because most of the A-T IRC staff has jumped ship to our Discord channels. Anime Toshokan currently has 2 Discord groups which are operated by Mikuru//X & Akadai Shirou (both operate one each). One deals with the A-T group as a whole and the other deals with the A-T gaming guild. For those of you whom been with us for all of these years, thank you so very much for the memories and good times (and bad) we've had. If you would like to meet us on Discord, please click here: https://discord.gg/hQARJ6a
  3. 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!
  4. Over the years, Anime Toshokan has always had 2 or 3 mascots that represent the site. Back in 2010, we introduced these mascots in their first drawn version back when we had them designed at Anime Weekend Atlanta. Over the course of 5 years, their designs have changed (well, only one of them) and their redrawn looks are now complete. Mikuru & Haruhi are 2 of 3 main mascots for Anime Toshokan. They are the sites personification of its founder Mikuru//X and his close online friend & Rumble Fighter partner "Haruhi". Name: Mikuru Nationality: American Ethnic: Half African American / Half Thai Age: 21 Born: September 20, 1996 Place of Birth: Alabama, USA Hobbies: Watching Anime, Reading Manga, Web Design, Graphic Design, Playing Video Games (Fighting & MMORPGs mostly), Cooking, Sleeping (a little too much) Favorite Foods: Mom's Thai Cooking, Sushi, Takoyaki, Grilled Corn, Fish (prefers Tilapia), Tiramisu, Coffee Based Products Likes: Her friendly gaming rivalry with Haruhi, quiet places, trying new foods, going places, & other stuff? Dislikes: Lazy/uncultured/disrespectful/closed minded people, the word that is not a word "Weeaboo",......that's all you're getting out of me. Favorite Anime Series(s): Chobits, El-Hazard, Battle Athletes, Ranma 1/2, Tenchi Muyo, Mamano Hunter Yohko Mikuru's design has not changed since we've first introduced her back in 2010. Still sporting the eye patch, cat ears cap, & white coat, no one knows exactly what she likes to wear underneath it.....not ever her creator. What we do know is that she tends to be a very quiet person at most times but tends to do a complete 180 when she's at bars, gaming pubs, or anime conventions. Usually bored with everyday life as nothing particularly happens in her hometown so she spends everyday on her computer or iTab doing random things online. Name: Haruhi Nationality: American Ethnic: Caucasian Age: 20 Born: April 20, 1997 Place of Birth: USA (Haruhi has not stated) Hobbies: ??? Favorite Foods: ??? Likes: ??? Dislikes: ??? Favorite Anime Series(s): ??? Haruhi has went through a complete overhaul in her design. Her original design had her too close to resembling Haruhi from "Suzumiya Haruhi no Yutsuu" which is something we needed to avoid at all cost. Luckly, another one of our online friends from the online game "Rumble Fighter" came up with her current design but only from the head down to her chest. We had to make go with what we had and come up with the rest ourselves. Haruhi's profile is currently unknown because only Haruhi has that info as we'll wait to see what she wants to put down for her. The only reason Mikuru's profile is done is because she is based on our founder. The redesign artwork was commissioned by Anime Toshokan to a online artist who goes by the name "LukisanHana" on Facebook. She has done an excellent job portraying our mascots the way we imagined them and for coming up with the rest of the body for Haruhi with absolutely nothing to fall back on. We really recommend you check her artwork out and see about getting commissions from Lukisan....tell them Anime Toshokan sent ya!! LukisanHana Facebook Page: Click Here
  5. Anime Toshokan - Help Wanted

    Over the course of years since the days where we did Stepmania material, fansubbing, & other activities, Anime Toshokan has since changed to go in a more clean route about our operations. Since then, we've also pretty much abandoned the community that helped us grow back in those days. It may have been for the best for the greater good that is to be recognized by others as an official outlet to express ourselves & to teach others about all things anime, gaming, & otaku culture but the road leading to there is very long and harsh with the rise of social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and others of its kind......even in anime social media, Goboiano is about to capture that market as well, leaving websites like Anime Toshokan & others to try even harder to gain a following and a community. Unless there was something that made a website different or attractive than the others, those sites have no chance of ever getting off its feet. As the only person who runs this site and the only person actually tries to add content, it's very hard on me to do anything on my own as this is a hobby & dream project for myself. Even I have a 5/8 job that has to pay the bills so it's extremely hard for me to keep this up but I've done so for the last 17+ years (this includes all the early iterations of this site before it became Anime Toshokan). This is a cry for help, if anything, to find people who share the same love for anime & games as I do who would like to build a community where people can share ideas & experiences with others. If you're that kind of person would like to help us (or me, to be more blunt), please contact me through PM on the A-T website. Also, let me know what your ideas are to help us grow.
  6. With the new site now running smoothly (so far), we at Anime Toshokan can now concentrate with refilling this site with content for our users as well as open new doors for people who are willing to help in any way. As the news title suggests, we are looking for gamers who are open minded with their opinions in giving feedback on Japanese doujin games that have potential for the US/EU market. Before anyone asks, yes, this is a volunteer position but this is also official work on our part as you'll be helping companies make decisions on games they want to try and bring to the western market but would like opinions on various aspects of the games such as: Is the game fun?Do you enjoy playing X game?How is the gameplay to you? Does it make you want to continue playing?What are some of the things you would change before being officially released?Questions of these matters are just an example of what you'll be asked. Anime Toshokan will not be releasing these games and we're not becoming a US publisher of these games but rather our feedback will go to the company that wants a public opinion on a product they have in mind. We will not disclose any information as to who our clients are but if you've known MikuruX for a while then you probably know who he is helping. Being in this group, however, you will be instructed and to hold your part as a tester of Anime Toshokan to never disclose any information or data of any game you test with us. You will not allowed to talk about anything regarding your work here at Anime Toshokan or about our clients regarding the testing out in public or family/friends. Breaking these rules of the group will automatically cause for your termination from the group and possibly a life-time ban from this site (These are serious offenses and we will not tolerate insubordination). If this sounds like something for you and something that you can do, please inform us in the comments or private message Mikuru//X.
  7. Rebuild of Anime Toshokan

    Due to complete & utter lack of customer service with our former site hosting company "Globat", Anime Toshokan was forced to move to another host in order to gain the full benefits of the latest version of Invision Power Board which is version 4.0 that is currently now in testing (we're using the current release candidate as of right now). Because of this move and other issues with Globat & compatiability with the database, again, the site has been wiped a new. Also, Anime Toshokan will for now be closed off from the public until we feel that it is ready to open for the general public to use. We are unsure of our vision of the site but we'll keep working till we find one that both pleases us and our users. We apologize for all of the trouble that this may cause for everyone but we hope you all will work with us during out testing phase of the new Anime Toshokan website.
