I actually bought it from Amazon... but I haven't watch it yet (of course).

I saw the original TV series when I was a kid. They played it here in Hawaii with subtitles. Was named Zoboga though. This looks like a very different take on the property.

and more obviously different here:

Pop Artist Takashi Murakami Directs 1st Live-Action Film

Contemporary artist Takashi Murakami will be directing his first live-action film titled Mememe no Kurage (Jellyfish Eyes). Murakami is also in charge of the original story for the film and the character design, and is serving as executive producer.


In the film, Sueoka stars as Masashi, an elementary school student who transfers schools after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster. In his new house, Masashi discovers that he can see "friends," mysterious jellyfish-like beings that adults cannot see. The film will incorporate more than 900 cuts of CG animation.

Murakami wrote on the film's website that the Jellyfish Eyes project began more than 10 years ago as a full CG-animated film that was eventually shelved. Murakami then created an artistic piece with the same title in 2004, but it was only after Murakami met Nishimura on another project that he decided to create the live-action film.

The film is slated to open across Japan on April 26, 2013. Murakami is already working on a sequel to the film, which will take place two years later.

Naniiiii????!!!!

Trailer Teaser Teases Possible Hentai Kamen Project

A teaser trailer that was shown before some showings of the Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo film featured a man standing on a rooftop at night wearing only fishnet stockings, skimpy underwear, and women's underwear as a mask on his face. At the end of the 15-second teaser, the letters "HK" were displayed on screen. The teaser video featured both live-action and CG footage.

No other information about the upcoming project has been given, including an official title, premiere date, or cast.

Keishuu Andou's Ultimate!! Hentai Kamen gag manga features a protagonist who wears similar clothing. The six-volume manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1992-1993. The manga revolves around a kenpo club member who accidentally has a pair of women's underwear land on his face while saving a girl from bullies. The underwear gives him the ability of using the entire potential of his body.

TOKIO's Nagase Stars as Manga Character Come to Life

TOKIO band member Tomoya Nagase (Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Sword of the Stranger) will star in the live-action drama Naku na, Hara-chan (Don't Cry, Hara-chan) as a manga character who comes to life.

The romantic comedy series revolves around a plain woman who works in a kamaboko (fish paste) factory who writes a manga instead of a diary to record her frustrations. The manga is about a man named Hara-chan who is always drunkenly crying about his problems at a cheap bar. One day, Hara-chan comes to life and falls in love with the woman.

Akibaranger the Movie, Just a Joke!

A few days ago, over at Tamashii Nation 2012, the Akibaranger booth were showing multiple posters and advanced ticket gifts for something called “Akibaranger the Movie: Treasure of the Maid Empire” ! You’ll never get to see it in the cinema because it doesn’t exist.

The Akibaranger staff decided to take a joke from twitter to the next level by making it seem like a movie was being released. Even going as far as making posters, fake tickets and the limited edition ticket gift, AkibaRed Special Color version as pictured below.

Now I cannot get my hopes up for this... :-(

Akibaranger Season 2?
