The teaser visual shows the brothers Mutta and and Hibito during childhood. The trailer then proclaims that "the previously unwritten true beginning of that manga, which embodies Japan in dreams and emotions, is being made into an animation film. This is the origin story. This is chapter 0."

The Uchū Kyōdai #0 (Space Brothers #0) film will open on August 9. The original manga has been on hiatus since December 26 because Koyama was writing the film's script. However, he will resume the manga in this year's 12th issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine on February 20.

Chaika - Coffin Princess has concluded its run for the Spring Anime season of 2014. It will be coming on October 2, 2014 for the Fall 2014 season. Boy, I really love this anime series.

If you haven't seen Chaika yet, go see it now especially if you love fantasy and action series. I easily mistaken it for a Shonen series back then.

Here's the summary:

Chaika - The Coffin Princess revolves around a trio: a young female wizard named Chaika and the Saboteur siblings, Toru and Akari, who assist Chaika in retrieving her father's remains. Chaika wishes to give her father a proper burial. Her father is Emperor Gaz who had been slain by the eight heroes, and as a result, his empire had been dismantled. Individual countries are now managed by the Kliemann Organization during the post war period. There are individuals who will stop Chaika and her gang from her goals while there are others who compete with her in taking her father's remains.

In Japan, there will be a Blu-Ray/DVD on June 27, 2014.

Here are Thank You sketches from Masui, the director, and Arai, the character designer:

I will lock this thread in favor of the Hitsugi no Chaika Discussion. This would be a news blog.
