New PV for “Sakurada Reset” Live Action Film

The second promotional video for the Sakurada Reset live action film adaptation was uploaded earlier this month. The trailer shows off some of the cast, acting, and music to expect in this upcoming film. Sakurada Reset began as a light novel series in 2009 and will be receiving an anime adaptation this coming April.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis below:

“Nearly half the population of Sakurada, a small town near the Pacific Ocean, has some sort of unique power. These powers range from being able to enter the mind of a cat, to resetting the world back to a certain point in time in the past. There is a group known as the “Kanrikyoku” that controls and monitors the use of these powers. Asai Kei and Haruki Misora work for their school’s club called “Houshi” club, which execute any missions received from the Kanrikyoku. Misora has the ability to reset the world 3 days. This means that all events and any memory of the past 3 days that “could have” happened, never happened. Kei has the ability to “remember” the past. Even after Misora uses her powers to reset the world back 3 days, Kei will retain those 3 days in his memory. Combining their powers, these two solve missions issued by the Kanrikyoku.”

The movie will open in theaters on March 25.

2nd PV Released for “Welcome to the Ballroom” Anime

A new 30-second promotional video has been released for the Welcome to the Ballroom (Ballroom e Youkoso) anime adaptation! The series began as a manga published in Monthly Shounen Magazine in November 2011. The manga was licensed by Kodansha Comics USA for North American release in September 2016 with only 3 of the 8 total volumes currently localized. The story is still ongoing.

Kodansha Comics describes the synopsis for the series below:

“Feckless high school student Tatara Fujita wants to be good at something—anything. Unfortunately, he’s about as average as a slouchy teen can be. The local bullies know this and make it a habit to hit him up for cash, but all that changes when the debonair Kaname Sengoku sends them packing. Sengoku’s not the neighborhood watch, though. He’s a professional ballroom dancer. And once Tatara Fujita gets pulled into the world of the ballroom, his life will never be the same.”

Welcome to the Ballroom will begin airing in July 2017.
