Who is the WORST GIRL in Shounen Jump? Fans vote for the magazine"s "Worst Heroine"

Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine is one of Japan’s most well known manga magazines, as it has introduced us to many legendary anime titles like Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and even Nisekoi and To Love-Ru. The series has also introduced plenty of heroines, though it is clear that many of them aren’t that popular, and even hated.


In a new poll done by ranking website, Goo, they asked 500 people (250 male and 250 female) to vote for the Shounen Jump! heroine that they think is the worst. Fans were allowed to vote multiple times, and here is the Top 20:


20 – Aika Hiiragi (Mx0)


19 – Kaoru Kamiya (Rurouni Kenshin)


18 – Lala Deviluke (To Love-Ru)


17 – Dakki (Hoshin Engi)


16, 15, 14, 13 (4-way tie) – Miho Akizuki (Bakuman), Himeko Onizuka (Sket Dance), Nami (One Piece), and Sakurako Amamiya (Psyren)


12 – Chika Amatori (World Trigger)


11 – Tsukasa Nishino (Strawberry 100%)


10 – Kokomi Teruhashi (Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan)

7 – Chiaki Nanase (Rokudenashi Blues)

Tsurara Oikawa ( Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan)

5 – Kagura (Gintama)

4/3 (2-way tie)


Erina Nakiri (Food Wars: Shokugeki no Souma)

Misa Amae (Death Note)

Chitoge_Kirisaki


1 -Ochako Uraraka (My Hero Academia)


screen-shot-2016-05-15-at-7-21-29-am


While a lot of people are still clearly not gotten over the ending of Nisekoi, Ochako manages to take the top spot in Goo’s ranking, beating out Chitoge. While both heroines have strong followings themselves, as this poll has shown, many manga readers really don’t like them that much.


Though the same could be said for Erina Nakiri, who has a lot of fans, and even Death Note’s Misa Amane, who through the years has gotten a lot of haters despite also having a strong fanbase, however, #5 is surprising as Kagura is named to the list. As for Sakura, we’re not surprised at all…


So, who is your most hated Shounen Jump heroine? You can also check out the heroines who got ranked lower, at #21 – 48, here: http://ranking.goo.ne.jp/ranking/category/999/8_626wPPNcnf/p5/

Which anime school uniform do anime fans want to wear the most? Charapedia ranks the Top 20

Anime school uniforms are a staple during cosplay events, but sometimes, it makes one wonder how it would feel actually wearing one for everyday use, like actual students of that school from the anime.


For this week’s Charapedia poll, of the 10,000 anime fans who voted, an overwhelming 82.5% of voters were actually female, while only 17.5% were male. This is because the focus of the poll were anime school uniforms, and from the looks of things, a lot of women really want to wear the uniforms of certain schools in anime. Here are the Top 20:


20 – Fukuroudani High School (Haikyuu!!)


19 – Hope’s Peak Academy (Danganronpa)


18 – Sakuragaoka Girls’ High School (K-On!)


17 – Uranohoshi Girls’ High School (Love Live! Sunshine!!)


16 – Tokiwadai Middle School (A Certain series)


15 – Mitakihara Middle School (Madoka Magica)


14 – Roman Academy (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)


13 – Teitan Middle School (Detective Conan)


12 – Nanamori Middle School (YuruYuri)


11 – Naoetsu Private High School (Monogatari series)


10 – Seirin High School (Kuroko’s Basketball)

9 – Tomoeda Elementary School (Cardcaptor Sakura)

8 – Iwatobi High School (Free!)

7 – Saotome Academy (UtaPri)

2 – Teikou Middle School (Kuroko’s Basketball)


Akashi_and_Midorima


1 – Otonokizaka High School (Love Live!)


Love_Live!_μ


And the school uniform that fans want to wear the mosty is the uniform of Otonokizaka High School, and we are absolutely not surprised at all. Love Live! actually has a huge female fanbase, and with more than 80% of the voters being female, it’s no wonder why many actually want to wear their uniform.


And with more than 80% of the voters being female, it’s not surprising that we see a lot of sports anime in the Top 20, particularly the schools featured in Kuroko’s Basketball, Haikyuu!!, and Free!.


As for those anime that are a bit more male-oriented (that’s not Love Live!), The Irregular at Magic High School scores big and takes 5th place because those uniforms are just damn cool to look at.

Shin Godzilla to be shown in Singapore in iMAX

The King of Monsters has arrived in Singapore, and Godzilla will be getting the royal movie treatment, as his latest movie, Shin Godzilla, also known as Godzilla: Resurgence in some countries, will be shown in iMax. The movie is distributed by Encore Films in Singapore, and will also be available to audiences in 2D and D-Box.


Shin Godzilla_Poster


Managing Director of Encore Films Joyce Lee, said:



“We’re delighted to present SHIN GODZILLA in IMAX to our local audiences. This is the first Japanese blockbuster to be re-leased in IMAX in Singapore, and we believe that the IMAX experience definitely befits the legendary ‘King of Monsters’. Audiences will be able to immerse themselves in SHIN GODZILLA’s thrilling action with IMAX’s unparalleled image and sound quality.”



Synopsis:



An unknown source causes a catastrophic accident in the tunnels of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line, leading to irreparable damage and massive flooding. An emergency cabinet meeting is ordered to salvage the situation and discover the cause of the accident. Soon after, a gigantic creature emerges and rampages through town after town, much to everyone’s horror. How will Japan deal with this gigantic “monster” that they know nothing about?



SHIN GODZILLA will be releasing in cinemas islandwide on 25 August 2016. SHIN GODZILLA is co-distributed by Encore Films and Golden Village Pictures in Singapore. It will be the first Japanese movie to be screened in iMax here in Singapore.


What a perfect time to be a fan of Godzilla, right? Not only are we getting a live-action Godzilla movie directed by Neon Genesis Evangelion director, Hideaki Anno, but we will also be getting a Godzilla anime movie written by the one and only Gen “Urobutcher” Urobuchi, though it still has not been revealed whether the latter will also be released in Singapore.

Re:Zero is the hottest anime right now, and while people are enjoying/ getting frustrated with Subaru’s suffering, 5pb. Games has announced that they will be making a new visual novel based on the series, and it is titled Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- DEATH OR KISS.

Not much was announced for the new visual novel, but 5pb. did open a teaser website for it. The teaser website features the silhouettes of the five royal candidates, however, Ram and Rem are nowhere to be found. Fret not, because Groove Garage is releasing some snuggle sheets for your bed, and it features the lovable demon twins.

Snuggle sheets are actually bed covers, and sort of act like dakimakura. This one measures in at 50cmx150cm and costs 11,800 yen. It is slated for release in November and is now available via Amazon Japan.

Ghost in the Shell original director and writer, Mamoru Oshii, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex director and writer, Kenji Kamiya, and Ghost in the Shell musical composer, Kenji Kawai,  previously visited the set and posed with the film’s stars, including Scarlett Johansson herself.


The apparent “White Washing” of the roles have drawn much controversy, however, Kodansha executives back in Japan “White Washing” the role never expected an Asian or Japanese actress to play the role of Motoko Kusanagi, who is considered one of the most iconic Japanese anime characters in history. In fact, the Japanese netizens really did not care much about the role going to a non-Japanese.


Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders is at the helm of the project as director, and DreamWorks Pictures producing the movie. DreamWorks executive and legendary director, Steven Spielberg (Jurassic Park, E.T., Indiana Jones) is a huge fan of the original anime movie and has wanted this project to be realized for a long time now, and with the filming of the classic manga already started, Spielberg is finally getting what he wants.


So what do you think of Scarlett Johansson possibly playing Motoko Kusanagi? Will this go the “Edge of Tomorrow” route and be a huge success, or will this go the “Dragon Ball Evolution” route and fail miserably? Only time will tell so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

[MEME] Japanese Table Tennis Olympian inspires new anime meme

The Rio 2016 Olympic games are now officially over, and with Japan scrambling to host the next one, the country is bracing itself for Tokyo 2020. However, with the Olympics comes a new anime meme, compliments of a Japanese Table Tennis Olympian named Jun Mizutani.

Mizutani has actually brought hoor for Japan by winning the country’s first medal in Table Tennis, however, that did not stop the magical place known as the internet in making fun of his weirdly-timed poses. With the hashtag, , #アニメの画像をアップすると近い構図の水谷隼の画像が送られてくる, which means to “upload an image of Mizutani with an ANIME character in a similar position”, the Japanese social media users had a little fun of the world-class athlete’s weird poses.























































Oh internet, you truly are a magical place, aren’t you? While the main focus of the meme was comparing Mizutani’s poses with anime characters, several video game characters also made an appearance. Oh, and Spongebob Squarepants counts as an anime so that explains why Patrick is there (really, Spongebob Squarepants is counted as an anime back in Japan).
