We’ve got some exciting live-action news and anime announcements this week. I’m looking forward to Ceres: Celestial Legend.
The manga Kurosaki-kun no linari ni Nante Naranai, currently serialized in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Friend, is getting a live-action film adaptation next year. The film is set to release Feb. 27. According to Crunchyroll, “The story revolves around Yu Akahane, who has started living in a dormitory in her high school where her desired boy Takumi Shirakawa, Nicknamed as “White Prince” lives. However, Haruto Kurosaki, who is the best friend of Takumi and is feared as “Black Devil,” is also a resident at the place. One day, as a punishment for disobeying Haruto, her first kiss is taken by him, then he demands her absolute obedience.”
The boys-love manga, His Favorite, is receiving a live-action adaptation. Sublime has the English license. From Sublime: “Yoshida is short, scrawny and generally unattractive. To make matters worse, all the girls in his class hate him because Sato, the hottest guy in school, always uses hanging out with him as an excuse to turn them down. Is Yoshida just a convenient excuse or is there something more? Could this odd couple even make things work?!”
Snow White with the Red Hair will get a second season. It airs in January. The anime’s first season is streamed by Funimation.
Crunchyroll is streaming Ceres, Celestial Legend and Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie. Both are available now. For more information about the two, visit Crunchyroll.
Amnesia: Memories is now available on mobile (at least in the U.S.). The standard edition has a free prologue and each chapter costs $2.99. The premium edition, which has all scenarios available when you purchase it, will cost $22.99.
