A-1's anime of Broccoli's 2010 project for female gamers to air this summer
The March issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine is announcing on Thursday that a television anime adaptation of Broccoli's 2010 PSP romance game franchise Uta no Prince-sama— for female gamers has been green-lit. Uta no Prince-sama— Maji Love 1000% will premiere this summer, and the anime's website will open this month. In the slapstick romantic comedy, a girl goes to a school for the performing arts with boys who are budding idols.
The story underneath is a universal one, powerful and expertly told. Viewers should be prepared for a devastating experience with a lot of challenging concepts that pile on hard and fast as the finale approaches.
Tech-based magical girls battle aliens in a heavily-derivative, otaku-pandering series that is definitely not aimed at little girls. It avoids mediocrity due an outstanding musical score and never forgetting that it is supposed to be fun.
Higurashi: When They Cry is still an intriguing, spine-chilling, gut-churning horror/mystery hybrid that has nicely recovered from the prologue feel of the previous volume. It can be an intimidating series to pick up, but it looks as if those who stuck by it are about to be amply rewarded
