I recently just finished a anime called Puella Magi Madoka Magica and made by Magica Quartet, is a familar author with magic theme!
There are only 12 episode in this anime but the author really created a amazing world of magic girl! Which is known to all, the topic about magic girl are always perfect and warm,magic girls fight with something to protect our peace world. But this one give us a totally different axiology about those topic.
The main character called Kaname Madoka and she has many friends and antecessor,actually there are all trying to protect this girl from to be a magic girl, and in the last two episode,Kaname Madoka become a magic finally then save her partner and the universe by sacrifice herself.And no one will remember once there is a girl called Kaname Madoka. Actually I think this story is a tragedy and also give us a new axiology about friendship and love of ones families. In a word, this is a fantastic anime!!
Mika Ayano, a winner in this year's Miss Magazine idol contest and the daughter of singer Toshihiko Tahara, will star in the second live-action television series based on Aki Katsu's romantic comedy manga Atsui zo! Nekogaya!! (It's Hot! Nekogaya!!) starting on October 13. This will be the first starring role in a live-action television series for Ayano. Motto Atsui zo! Nekogaya!! (It's Even Hotter! Nekogaya!!) will also be the third live-action series to star the finalists of the Miss Magazine contest, after 2009's Boku no Himitsu Heiki (My Secret Weapon) and the first Atsui zo! Nekogaya!! show last year.The story is set in Nekogaya, a town in Saitama Prefecture northwest of Tokyo. Nekogaya is Japan's hottest town with a record high temperature of 48.4°C (119°F). As a result, the town passed laws mandating citizens to wear swimsuits everyday "for ecological reasons." Katsu serialized the manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine from 2009 to April of this year, and the seventh and final compiled book volume shipped in July.Katsu's other manga titles include Futari H (Manga Sutra), Psychic Academy, and the shōnen manga version of The Vision of Escaflowne; Tokyopop published these three titles in North America.
