October 21 2009 Anime Newsletter


Welcome to the October 21st edition of the BellaOnline Anime newsletter!

Here are the headlines to come out of the anime industry since last week's newsletter:

*Kazuhiko Kato, who composed the theme songs for Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? and Windaria, was found hanged in a hotel room on October 17, 2009. The authorities suspect that he committed suicide.

*The Astro Boy movie opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, October 23.

*The American website for McDonald's has posted a preview of the Astro Boy toys that will be given out with Happy Meals for the upcoming Astro Boy movie. The toys will be: the Astro Boy Launcher, Trashcan, Astro Boy Puncher, Peacekeeper, Astro Boy Flying, and Zog.

*Frank Marshall, the co-producer of the English dub of Ponyo, announced on his personal Twitter account that the Ponyo DVD "will be out in March."

*Fourteen anime theme song singers from Japan formed a group called Anison All-Stars to record John Lennon's "Imagine" as a charity single to fight world hunger. Currently, the song is only available on Japanese music download services. 100 yen from the proceeds of each download will go to the World Food Programme (the United Nations organization that fights world hunger and poverty). The singers who participated in this effort are: Mami Ayukawa, Yoshifumi Ushima, Minami Kuribayashi, Hiromi Satou, JAM Project (Hironobu Kageyama, Masaaki Endou, Hiroshi Kitadanim Masami Okui, Yoshiki Fukuyama), Hiroki Takahashi, Kaori Hikita, Faylan, Yumi Matsuzawa, and Shunji Inoue.

There are topics in the anime forum for these news story. If you'd like to join in on the discussion, there's a link to the forum later in the newsletter. You need to have a BellaOnline forum account in order to post, but signing up for a forum account is free.

This week, I posted three new articles. The first is a biography for Kazuhiko Kato. The second is a review of Pokemon Heroes, and the third is a review of Hello Kitty's Paradise Volume 3. Links to all three of these articles are included later in the newsletter.

Thank you for your support of the BellaOnline Anime site, newsletter, and forum. Be sure to watch your inbox next Wednesday for the October 28th edition of the BellaOnline Anime newsletter.
