I’m scanning through my YouTube subscription timeline. Which consists mostly of music. Music videos, interviews, commentary and etc. Too my surprise, I come across this video by Black Critic Guy titled: DORA THE EXPLORER LIVE ACTION FILM!?!? IS THIS A JOKE!? Unfortunately, it checks out.
Princess Jellyfish follows 18-year-old Tsukimi Kurashita who recently moved to Tokyo to pursue her dream of being an illustrator. One evening, while visiting a local pet shop. She encounters a lovely young woman who comes to her rescue. Tsukimi soon learns that the Princess who rescued her wasn’t really a princess at all, She was really a Man. Kuranosuke Koibuchi, the youngest son of a political family. From then on, Tsukimi’s and her housemate’s lives were flipped upside down.
I went to an interesting panel at Anime Next about how Anime or Manga series gets Americanized. Some series that we all know and love should never be replicated. America seems to fail when attempting to recreate an Anime series or movie adaptation with their own spin on it. Sometimes it is not all bad but they still fall short even with the help of A-list directors and screenwriters.
I saw a few write up’s on this a few months ago. I was hyped. This was something I was waiting on for a while. And now that it’s official. A cast photo has been released, proof that this is really going down.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I am a fan of Marvel Comics. And this Cloak & Dagger series looks like it’s going to be pretty good. While I’m not familiar with their backstory, It’s a duo, I’ve heard be bounce around fairly often.
Disney has been doing right by Marvels legacy so far. And too be honest, I was skeptical at first. Because Disney and I, have a love hate relationship. But I digress, that is a story for another time.
A few years back, around the time of the buy out.There were rumors of a possible Runaways movie circulating on the net. I’m not sure whether, these rumors were true or pulled out of thin air. That realization would not sway me. Years later, I still love the idea. A live action Runaways movie or Series (Tv or Netflix original) would be so dope.
Rena Nounen as Tsukimi was a pretty accurate casting; very believable. The rest of Sisterhood’s casting was pretty phenomenal as well. Azusa Babazono has the closes likeness appearance wise to her character Chieko. Rina Ohta captured Mayaya’s mannerism to a T. Chizuru Ikewaki and Tomoe Shinohara who played Jiji and Banba weren’t half bad as well.
