PV Released for “Hinako Note” Anime Adaptation

The first promotional video for the Hinako Note television anime has been released! This series is an adaptation of the Hinako Note manga that was first published in August 2014 by Mitsuki, who is responsible for both the story and the art.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis of this series below:

“Hinako lives in the countryside and is poor at speaking. She wants to improve her speech to be able to talk to people fluently, so she moves to Tokyo and plans to join the drama club in high school. When she arrives, however, it turns out her boarding house is a secondhand bookstore, and a beautiful girl who eats books lives there.”

Hinako Note will premiere in April 2017.

Preorders Open for “Cowboy Bebop” Figurine

Kotobukiya has added a new Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop) figurine to their ARTFXJ Statue lineup! The figure line is designed to make Japanese characters more accessible to their fans around the world.

This 1/8th scale figurine is approximately 9.5 inches tall (about 240mm) and can be preordered now through the Kotobukiya Online Store for $149.99. He comes with a few interchangeable parts to help create a more customizeable experience. The solemn face, coatless upper body, and hand holding cigarette parts are exclusive bonuses from ordering through the Kotobukiya store.

“The space western is famous for its characters (as well as the music and action), and coming to you directly from KotoUS.com is an exclusive version of the bounty hunter and former Red Dragon Syndicate hitman: SPIKE SPIEGEL DX VER.! The stylish and cool anti-hero looks like he stepped right out of the anime and is portrayed in a casual pose leaning up against a brick wall. Spike wears his traditional outfit consisting of a blue suit and shoes, yellow shirt, black tie, and gray overcoat. The bounty hunter rests against the low, broken wall while balancing on one foot, the other tucked beneath him. He even turns to give you a sly smile as though to distract from the fact that he’s holding his pistol at the ready! Spiegel’s clothing looks great with realistic folds, creases, and details including his open collar and loosened tie.

Remove Spike’s coat to give him an even more relaxed look, exchange his pistol with a rose, swap out facial expressions for a smile or a scowl, or use the alternate arm to capture Spiegel smoking a cigarette.”

The figurine can be preordered from other sites, such as AmiAmi, so choose whichever you’re most comfortable with if you do decide to pick him up. He will be officially released in June 2017.
