posted on by Egan Loo
The official website of the Kamisama Dolls television anime series began streaming a 96-second "Girls Side" promotional video on Tuesday. (There is a second "Story Side" promotional video on the website of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine, but it is only available to Japanese Internet addresses.) Hajime Yamamura's original supernatural action manga centers around Kyōhei (Nobuhiko Okamoto), a college student who grew up in a village that deified figureheads named kakashi as gods. Kyōhei abandoned his hometown when he moved to Tokyo and immersed himself in college life. However, he learns from his younger sister Utao (Misato Fukuen) that a fugitive named Aki from his hometown has also arrived in Tokyo (with his kakashi in tow) and is responsible for a horrific crime that Kyōhei had just witnessed. The anime will premiered this summer.
The official Facebook account for Scott Stewart's loose live-action adaptation of the Korean manhwa Priest began streaming a new trailer last week. Hyung Min-woo created the original manhwa that Tokyopop released in North America. The trailer features Paul Bettany as the titular priest Ivan Isaacs, Cam Gigandet as Sheriff Hicks, Maggie Q as the Priestess, Lily Collins as Isaacs' kidnapped niece Lucy, and Karl Urban as Black Hat. After three delays, the movie is now slated for release in 2D and stereoscopic 3D on May 13.
