posted on by Andrew Osmond
New releases from MVM
On Monday February 16, MVM will release Battle Girls - Time Paradox. This is based on the 2008 pachinko game (called Sengoku Otome - Momoiro Paradox in Japan) which re-imagines Japan's tumultuous sengoku jidai (Era of Warring States) with all of the warriors as female characters. The series' protagonist is Hideyoshi, a modern-day middle school girl who unexpectedly finds herself in this alternative-historical setting.
MVM will also release a collected edition of Shangri-La. It adapts Eiichi Ikegami's novel about what happens to Tokyo when global warming turns the city into a tropical city in the middle of the 21st century. The staff includes director Makoto Bessho (Ah! My Goddess: The Movie, Armitage: Dual-Matrix), series script supervisor Hiroshi Ohnogi (Arjuna, Noein - to your other self), and character designer Range Murata (Blue Submarine No. 6, Last Exile).
