"Rurouni Kenshin Final Chapter The Final / The Beginning", a man who knows the mystery of cross wounds that is related to Kenshin's two works, and the role of the most feared enemy in the history of the series, the head of the Shanghai Mafia, In recent years, he has been performing in popular works in movies and dramas, and Shinsuke Nitta, who has both outstanding physical ability and delicate expression, has been decided!

On the edge is a mysterious weapons merchant who controls the underworld of the Chinese continent, a man who sent weapons and warships and manipulated Shishi Yuki's truth. With a strong resentment in Kenshin, he will set up <Hinchu> to destroy not only Kenshin but also everything related to Kenshin and the new era created by Kenshin!

Nitta, who entered the series for the first time, described his feelings at the time of receiving the offer, "In fact, I was very happy at the time I had received the offer many years ago. I couldn't imagine what the shooting would be like. " The producer made an offer about two years before shooting. Regarding the offer at an early stage, "The live-action of Hitochu will not be established unless there is an actor who can play the special role of the edge. An overwhelming action with an international atmosphere leaving somewhere young It is such an actor who can drive swordsmanship with acting.I thought that there was only Shinsuke Yuu who was meeting at the time of his debut, and I met Director Otomo at the stage of launching the plan in 2017. I feel something fateful about the fact that there was an actor named Kensuke Tajima, "said producer Koetsu Koiwai.

Director Otomo Keishi commented on Nitta, "When I first met him, I was so impressed with his straight glance that I immediately remembered telling the producer that he couldn't think of anything but him. , Overwhelming youth and terrificness, and the madness of purity and subtlety lurking at the bottom of it, he emerged in front of me as an embodiment of great potential and scale. Now, I feel that there is no mistake in his work: the trademark of white hair and orange, the trademark of the rim, his body and sensibility to dress them are exactly apart from the Japanese, as a threatening sword His tremendous potential has been fully demonstrated, and his fresh appeal is undoubtedly driving the new series. Please look forward to it. "

In addition, this work continues to meet the expectations of the audience with overwhelming action scenes that have never been seen before. One of the highlights is world-class action by action director Kenji Tanigaki who is active overseas. Nitta looked back on the fierce shooting and said, "It was very hard, but I managed to get over it with the help of Otomo, action director Tanigaki and the action team. The shooting continued for days and my body screamed. It was a great experience, and the set was huge and large, so I was surprised every time. " "It's a great action from the beginning. And I'd like to take a look at the scene where Kenshin meets the edge and the scene of fighting with Kenshin while cutting down my body. I want to see all the past 3 works as a fan I think that this work is also very interesting, so please look forward to it, including the edges. " Expectations are rising for Nitta, who demonstrated outstanding physical abilities in �JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Diamonds Can't Break�, and what action she will take with Ken Sato!

And the first ban on visuals! Crazy eyes slightly visible from the back of black sunglasses, eerie white hair color-the first enemy and rim from overseas. Wearing foreign madness and threatening Japan, its presence attacks the swordsmen with an unprecedented crisis! What will be the end of revenge on the swordsmanship? !

Also features an action that takes off his jacket and explodes emotions during a battle. Expectations also apply to the trained physical beauty.

Finally, the special ban on the main feature will be lifted for the first time on Friday 21st next week! In the summer of 2020, the highest climax in the history of the series will engrave a new history in Japanese movies!

The worldwide existence of the DigiDestined has gradually been acknowledged, and the sight of Digimon in the real world has become less unusual. Taichi has become a college student, while Yamato and the others have figured out and started down their own paths in life.

During all this, certain incidents begin to occur around DigiDestined worldwide. Menoa and Imura are scholars whose area of study is the Digimon who appeared to Taichi and the others. These two seek assistance from the group, claiming a Digimon called Eosmon is the cause of the incidents. Taichi and the DigiDestined come together once again so they can resolve the matter. But during the battle with Eosmon, something goes wrong with Agumon's and the others' evolutions. When Menoa sees this, she informs Taichi's group of a shocking truth: When a DigiDestined becomes an adult, his or her partner Digimon will cease to exist...

The threat posed by Eosmon gradually spreads to affect Taichi's friends as well. He can't save his friends if he won't fight, but fighting will mean he has to say goodbye to his partner that much sooner. He thought they would always be together. Will he fight, even if it means losing the one most dear to him? That's what it means for a DigiDestined to become an adult. In the face of unalterable destiny, what answer will the bond between Taichi and Agumon produce for just the two of them?

Creator Tite Kubo’s Bleach Returns in March

Recently and in the absence of new “Bleach” episodes or a new anime arc based on the series,  I have been reading Tite Kubo’s first known manga series, “Zombie Powder”,  which comes in four volumes.  I will post a review once I finish reading the series.  However, and as for now many of you know that I am a great fan of “Bleach”. Okay, so I wasn’t too fond of the live-action film.  As far as reviews go  … “to each their own”.

Nevertheless, today I am delighted in learning that “Bleach” is not dead, and in March “Bleach” will be returning in a brand new stage play.  It is entitled, “ Bleach 20th Anniversary Project & Tite Kubo New Work Presentation”.

While I am on the subject, Asian anime and manga driven stage plays are generally performed in Japan and are very hard, if impossible, for us in the United States to see unless we stumble across one on YouTube.  Therefore, here is a shout out to the makers of these wonderful plays.

“Streaming media series and films have become the norm. How about creating  a paid to view streaming channels loaded with current and past manga and anime based stage plays. Your fans in the States would absolutely love it.”

There I have thrown my idea into the wind. Let’s see if it is caught and made a reality.

Due to the Coronavirus Crisis some of the New issues of Manga, Animes Series and Live-Action Films debut dates features on the Widescreen Online Review websites are either rescheduled or closed down until further notice.
