Golden Village, Odex to open film in Singapore on Thursday

Singaporean cinema chain Golden Village began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova Cadenza (Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova Cadenza) anime film on Sunday. Golden Village will open the film in Singapore on Thursday, and Odex Private Ltd. is distributing the film.

Golden Village describes the film:

Protagonist Gunzo Chihaya and his friends, with the help of renegade Fog A.Is, head towards the United States to present blueprints for a weapon that will turn the tides of war in humanity's favour. It is easier said than done because Gunzo and the rest of Arpeggio's crew have gotten the attention of the mysterious Admirality Code.

Now they must face a new Fleet of Fog threat known as “Fog Student Council,” who are mental models dressed like high school girls. The Fog Student Council preaches that Earth's morals must correspond to the Fog's morals.

The film opened on 60 screens in Japan on October 3, ranking at #7 and earning 67,525,150 yen (about US$560,560) and selling 42,170 tickets, with a per-screen average of 1.13 million yen (about US$9,383).

The Arpeggio of Blue Steel (Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio) film projects reunite the cast and staff from the 2013 television anime series. Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC is a compilation of the 2013 television anime series with new story sequences, while Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova Cadenza is an entirely brand-new work.

Odex had screened the Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC film in Singapore in April.

New characters for the second film include:

Fog Student Council Vice President Myōkō (voiced by Ayaka Fukuhara)

Fog Student Council Nachi (voiced by Satomi Satou)

Fog Student Council Haguro (voiced by Hiromi Igarashi)

Fog Student Council Ashigara (voiced by Suzuko Mimori)

Fog Student Council President Hiei (voiced by M.A.O)

Super Battleship Musashi's "mental model" Musashi (voiced by Rie Kugimiya)

Gunzō Chihaya's father Shōzō Chihaya (voiced by Jouji Nakata)

In Ark Performance's original science-fiction naval manga, humanity lost much of its developed land due to global warming in the first half of the 21st century. Then, a "Fleet of Fog" loaded with super weapons suddenly appears all over the world. Without the ability to withstand this fleet, humanity was defeated and could no longer travel the seas. 17 years after the devastating naval war, Gunzō Chihaya and his crewmates somehow commandeer a "Fleet of Fog" submarine named I-401. Together with Iona (I-401's "mental model" or incarnation in humanoid form), they take on the "Fleet of Fog."

The television anime re-aired last year with 12 new "Kiri-Kumas" (literally, "Fog-Bears") shorts by the same main staff who worked on both the television anime and movies. Crunchyroll streamed the television anime as it aired in Japan, and Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the manga in North America.
