I should be doing work now but the hype after reading via RandomC about BONES creating an original new series Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, I had to go to their site for moar.

Go to tokyo-m8.com for more


The premise of the project is the 70% or higher possibility that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake will occur in Tokyo in the next 30 years. The anime will depict what would happen if an 8.0 earthquake took place. BONES will attempt to realistically portray the consequences of such a tremor after collecting data on actual earthquakes and interviewing people.

The story will center on Mirai, a middle school freshman girl who goes to Tokyo’s artificial Odaiba Island for a robot exhibition with her brother Yutaka at the start of summer vacation. A powerful tremor emanates from an ocean trench, the famed Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge crumble and fall, and the landscape of Tokyo changes in an instant. With the help of a motorcycle delivery woman named Mari who they meet on Odaiba, Mirai and Yutaka strive to head back to their Setagaya home in western Tokyo.

A new challenge for the BONES team. Realistic portrayal. Something they’ve never done. Definitely looking forward to watching this in July!

Arrived onto the BONES website, and I saw more of the new Eureka Seven movie, which didn’t know it was so close to completion! We’re getting back most of the cast from the original series, if not all of them. It’s going to be so nostalgic when I get to watch it.

A theatrical adaptation, Kōkyōshihen Eureka Sebun: Pocket ga Niji de Ippai (交響詩篇エウレカセブン ポケットが虹でいっぱい, literally “Pocket Full of Rainbows”), was first announced in the May 2008 issue of Newtype; it is set to be publicly released on April 25, 2009 during Golden Week , with the animation production handled by Kinema Citrus. The creators announced it will contain a new mythos, despite still featuring Renton and Eureka as the main characters.

And you can’t forget about the upcoming FMA remake. News of it everywhere on the net, so I won’t be dabblling about it, but I’ll just say, FINISH FASTER GUNDAMU!!

Even though Soul Eater is coming to an end, after all the humour and whackniess,  we’re still able to enjoy more BONES goodness. I have a feeling this will be the year for BONES.
