Hatsune Miku Gets Official Cocoa Car Variant From Daihatsu


Anime Herald
Anime Herald - We’ll talk nerdy to you.

The world’s hottest virtual idol now has an official car!

Calm down, it’s nowhere near as sleek as you’d expect.

In August, Daihatsu Motor Co. announced that they will release a special regional variant of their Cocoa, exclusive to the Hokkaido region of Japan. The car features an ice-blue color scheme, and various emblems that feature the now-famous “Snow Miku” ice sculpture. The roof rail has “SNOW MIKU” engraved in it, the gas lid uses a full-color Snow Miku emblem, and the interior is coordinated to match Snow Miku’s wintry theme.

The car itself is an officially licensed product, fully endorsed by Crypton Future Media.

For the uninitiated, “Snow Miku” is the official name given to the ice sculpture that appears at the Sapporo Snow Festival every year. It’s a bit of an attraction, that’s led to the creation of fan art, and full-on official toys.

That said, the car certainly isn’t as slick as one would expect from a virtual idol that’s seen as a very symbol of style. Given that we’ve seen Hatsune Miku on everything from sports cars to race cars, one can’t help but feel this is an odd juxtaposition of styles, for sure.

Of course, we said the same thing about Toyota and their ad campaign, so definitely take the thought with a grain of salt.

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings


Anime Herald
Anime Herald - We’ll talk nerdy to you.

Sengoku Basara is one big party!

Sengoku Basara boxart 20140930 238x300 Sengoku Basara: Samurai KingsWhen I signed on with Anime Herald, a stroke of chance led me toward Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings. It’s a show that’s always interested me, and I couldn’t help but feel that this was an opportunity to really see whether it was worth the wait. While other shows offer deeper plots or more robust character development, Sengoku Basara focuses on the thrill of the spectacle. Viewers looking for a feast for the eyes and a visual explosion of pure manliness will feel right at home with the series. Huge flashes of red and blue emanate from the main heroes as they tear through the battlefield, leaving hundreds in their wake. Horses defy physics, and are able to jump vast distances or even scale vertical walls with ease.

Basically, heroic strength is everything. It allows warriors to fight on water, or be thrown thousands of feet into the air. People fight, beat, and nearly kill one another just to impart basic life lessons. It is in this world that Masamune Date and Sanada Yukimura rise to greatness. Masamune Data, also known as The One Eyed Dragon, is a leader of men that’s always hungry for the next big party. Yukimura, better known as The Tiger of Kai, is a strong warrior whose intense loyalty to his master is unmatched. Still, he shows a subtle, youthful innocence that’s hard to describe. As one would expect, the two immediately clash as rivals, as they try to outdo one another in the field of battle.

The rivalry doesn’t last, though, as the two must put their differences aside to rise against Oda Nobunaga. Nobunaga, also known as the Devil King, is a special brand of evil. It’s an over-the-top, almost cartoonish malice that defies logic and destroys the very notion of honour. It’s the kind of evil that gets its own theme song and creates literal thunderstorms in its wake. It’s the type of evil that just gets driven home repeatedly through the course of the series. By the end of the show, most clans can clearly see that Nobunaga is a threat to the entire nation, though they’re powerless to much of anything. Clan warfare and a general power lust gets in their way time and time again, which deadlock the people and allow Nobunaga to conquer with impunity.

sengoku basara two 01 bd8bc276 mkv snapshot 01 01 2010 07 12 23 24 08 300x168 Sengoku Basara: Samurai KingsIt’s this brand of malice that allows Sengoku Basara to really look at the idea of warfare. The right reasons to fight, and why men place their lives on the line are common themes through the show. Likewise, the idea of giving one’s word and living by it is a topic that surfaces time and time again. Since this is a show that’s based on a major video game series, I expected it to be packed to the gills with action. Sengoku Basara certainly didn’t disappoint in this department. Between the broad flashes of color across the landscape of war, to fight scenes in burning buildings and overflowing flooded dikes, Sengoku Basara brings video game inspired battles to life.

I must admit that the opening of the show is very entertaining, as it features soldiers dancing around to hard rock music. It really sets the tone for the show proper, which is a tongue-in-cheek version of Japan’s samurai era. Also the voice acting was fantastic in both the English and Japanese versions, with strong performances and voices that matched well to their characters. In the English dub, though, I’d like to note that Lord Kenshin (Uesugi Kenshin) was played by Greg Ayres, whose performance was more “manly” than that of his Japanese equivalent Romi Park.

Overall, though, I enjoyed my time with Sengoku Basara. Fans looking for a show that features larger-than-life characters doing everything amped to eleven will find a lot to love in this series. That said, I’d like to offer the warning that this was based on a video game. Still, given that, it’s amazing as to how engrossing the show manages to be at times. For fans seeking crazy levels of manly bravado and fast-paced action, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings should be a no-brainer.

The DVD menu features the logo for the Survey Corps on a wall. The show title takes up the largest part of the screen with the five choices shown under it. Marathon Play lets you watch all the episodes of the disc in one continuous play through by having the OP start with the first episode on the disc and then removed for the rest of the episodes on the DVD.

Under the episode option shows a picture of Beane on the left with the menu title on top in large letters with the episodes listed under them. For the Setup menu we have Eren on the left. The menu title is to the right of that with the audio options below them. For the extras menu we have Jean on the left with the menu title to the right and the extra included with the first DVD under it.

The End of an Era: Steven Foster Leaves Sentai Filmworks


Anime Herald
Anime Herald - We’ll talk nerdy to you.

It’s the end of an era, folks.

Earlier today, Otaku Review dropped a bombshell in their interview with Steven Foster. The renowned dub director and script writer revealed that he hung up his equipment for the last time. It’s not something that’ll happen next week, nor is it something that will happen by December. Foster said his goodbyes at Sentai Filmworks earlier this year.

When asked why he left, Foster replied with the following:

Ha-ha. I’d love to say follow my passion but it was more like a survival tactic. More than anything though it was time to go. Maybe one day I’ll talk in more detail about it. But it’s pretty personal and a little raw. And I’m about to bare enough of my soul with this new venture. I was never a Tweeter or Instagrammer. I’m not a big public speaker. Well, looks like I’m about to be. All of that and more. And you know what? That’s okay. This is my path. ADV/Seraphim have theirs. Am I happy they phoenixed? Of course. I just didn’t care much for the bird that emerged from the fire.

Naturally, this is gigantic news. Foster is a man whose name is well-known to dub fans of all ages. His résumé reads like a history of the anime industry, spanning from the Pani Poni Dash to Penguindrum, Captain Harlock to Clannad. He’s inspired great joys with his work on titles like Angel Beats! and 5 Centimeters per Second, and stirred some truly interesting reactions from titles like Ghost Stories.

For many, his work was a big part of our early years in anime fandom. Whether we joined with Sorcerer Hunters or High School of the Dead, we ultimately found some fun in his work as a director and writer. He helped so many fans find the joys of anime, and his name will continue to live on in the subculture for many decades to come.

t’s truly sad to see Foster step away from the anime world. Still, I do hope that he finds happiness in his future endeavors. Thanks for the countless good times and memories, and may your future be as bright as the smiles you’ve helped create.

Note: For fans that want to keep up with Foster going forward, he will launch kawaiime.net on October 4, 2014 at 10:04 Central Time.
