Child actress Mana Ashida to star in Isao Yukisada’s “Entaku”
Relentlessly adorable child actress Mana Ashida will make her starring film debut in Isao Yukisada’s “Entaku” (out 2014).
In a departure from her cute image, she’ll play a sharp-tongued, grumpy 3rd-grader named Kokko-chan who’s constantly surrounded by her large Osakan family and wants nothing more than to be left alone. She’ll also speak in the Kansai dialect for the first time in her acting career.
In light of recent more or less successful adaptations in the historical fantasy type genre, like Yona, the recent Arslan, the not that recent (nor that successful) Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii, and the Summer’s Akagami no Shirayukihime, I was thinking about manga I’d like to see animated (on condition the animation be respectful to the source material in mood, quality and execution)
Joou no Hana - probably one of the toughest ones to get right, as the dramatic weighs heavier than the comedic. The art, however, is beautiful, and the story well worth telling. The heroine is endearing and, while the manga is far from ending, there is enough material already to make up a two cours show.
Chouka Kou (Song of the Long March or Chang Ge Xing) - the unlikeliest one to get animated, mainy because it’s a Manhua. But it is such a well written and addictive story that I wish I could spread the love for it, if only a little. All the characters are well fleshed out, the background is well established and the main character is utterly brilliant while at the same time deliciously flawed. And did I mention the art is impeccable?
Okoborehime to Entaku no Kishi - actually a light novel that got adapted to manga, and probably has the best chance of getting animated, for better or worse. For better because it has an interesting premise and entertaining story. For worse because if handled poorly, it has every chance of succumbing under the weight of reverse harem folly.
Mahou tsukai no Yome - less history and more fantasy, it’s one of the stories that charm from the get go and make the reader feel the urge to see those characters and situations animated to life. Sure, a several hundred year old with an animal skull for a head might not be everyone’s idea of a leading…eh… man(?), but, I’mma go with my gut and cross me fingers that this gets animated.
huaaaaa adik ku main movie lg hehe….jd ini ceritanya tentang seorang anak kelas 3 SD bernama koko (ashida mana) yang selalu merasa kesepian dan kekurangan padahal keluarga nya mencintainya (kok bs sih) oh iyya ini gallery foto adik mana yg kawaii ^_^
Sy malah berpikir kalau mana-chan jadi anak idiot hahaha biar tertantang gitu akting nya jangan jadi anak manis terus hehe….
Today we have a new chapter of Okoborehime! I am seriously loving how well adapted this arc is!! In the past ones they took five chapters to develop each novel but they are surely taking their time to enjoy the story with this one since there’s still like one-third of the arc left and the manga volume ends here in a cliffhanger.
Thank you so much for your translations! I really enjoy them. If you're taking recommendations I recommend Okobore Hime to Entaku no Kishi. I really like the manga, but haven't found a novel translation. I can't fit a detailed summary here, but it's about a princess who becomes heir to the throne in order to avoid a conflict between her two older brothers. She doesn't have any political allies so the story follows her as she gathers a group of loyal knights to support her before her coronation.
already reading that actually haha and I enjoy it a lot! this sort of story is just my cup of tea (plus it helps that leticia is such a charmer). the language is a bit of a pain to translate though (this is always my qualm with historical/fantasy anything).
I enjoy light novels but the only ones that are out are only for male demographics. I’ve read most of them that have been released, but I don’t enjoy them. I picked up Alice
in the Country of Diamonds: Bet On My Heart and really liked it, but I don’t like the series that much. I have some suggestions on Light Novels for the female demographic. If you have other suggestions or want to spread the news that girls want light novels with ROMANCE, ACTION, ADVENURE, and FANTASY, we need to let them know! I am VERY happy that Yen Press licensed the Pandora Hearts novels, but besides that, we don’t get many light novels at all. Suggestions:
