We"re not surprised with #1 as fans vote for the Top 20 anime characters want as a leader

In anime, there are plenty of Team Captains, Generals, Club Presidents, Student Council Presidents, Bosses, Managers, and all sorts of leaders, and some people actually want to be led by them.


For this week’s Charapedia poll, they asked 10,000 anime fans (38.1% male, 61.9% female) to vote for which anime characters do they want as a leader. Of the 43 characters included in the poll, only the Top 20 were revealed, and they are:


20 – Bright Noa (Gundam series)


19 – Koutarou Bokuto (Haikyuu!!)


18 – Mamoru Endou (Inazuma Eleven)


17 – Edward Newgate/ Whitebeard (One Piece)


16 – Tsubasa Oozora (Captain Tsubasa)


15 – Junpei Hyuuga (Kuroko’s Basketball)


14 – Chika Takami (Love Live! Sunshine!!)


13 – Kazuya Miyuki (Ace of Diamond)


12 – Tooru Oikawa (Haikyuu!!)


11 – Yusuke Fujisaki (Sket Dance)


10 – Tezuka Kunimitsu (The Prince of Tennis)


tezuka-san-tezuka-kunimitsu-28609472-1280-716


9 – Isao Kondo (Gintama)


kondousan


8 – Tetsuya Yuuki (Ace of Diamond)

7 – Yukio Kasamatsu (Kuroko’s Basketball)

6 – Levi (Attack on Titan)

5 – Seijuro Akashi (Kuroko’s Basketball)

4 – Gintoki Sakata (Gintama)

3 – Honoka Kousaka (Love Live!)


ep13_00143


2 – Daichi Sawamura (Haikyuu!!)


sawamura


1 – Monkey · D · Luffy (One Piece)


3553034-621452-monkey_d_luffy_after_timeskip__paint__by_twin_gamer_d4ez19r


Given One Piece’s popularity right now, is anyone even surprised? He may not look like it, but Luffy is a born leader, and will do everything in his power to protect his friends. He is a captain, and his charisma has inspired many wayward souls to join him.


With majority of the voters in this poll being female (61.9%), a lot of the characters who made it to this list are from series which have strong female fan followings, particularly sports anime like Prince of Tennis, Kuroko’s Basketball, and Haikyuu!!. Nine of the top 10 are also all guys, however, there is a rose among the thorns, as Honoka manages to take third place in the rankings as the only female in the Top 10.

South East Asia’s largest gaming convention is back, and we are definitely excited for it! Last year was huge, and this year, they are certainly aiming for something bigger, as they promise more varied content than the previous years.

Much like last year, those who come early will get a special prize in the form of a goodie bag with random loot inside, which could include gaming tees & merchandise, or products from sponsors Seagate, Razer Armaggeddon, MSI, Ingram Micro Asia and more. These will be given to the first 300 visitors to show up for each day.


Another huge addition is that for the first time, Xbox will be participating in GameStart! They will be showcasing the Xbox One, as well as some of the consoles games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Final Fantasy XV. They will also show off various Microsoft products and other Xbox merchandise.

And with Xbox making its first appearance, Sony will be going to the event as well, as they will be returning as a major sponsor, with the largest booth at the event. One of the highlights will be one of the hottest e-sports scenes on Earth, because for the first time, the event will be hosting the South East Asia Major! Some of the best players from around the world will be coming, including the legendary Daigo “The Beast” Umehara and Singaporean’s own Street Fighter prodigy, Ho Kun Xian, and they will be competing for a spot at the Capcom Cup 2016 Finals.


SEAM 2016 will also include other notable tournaments for Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-, BlazBlue Central Fiction and the highly anticipated King of Fighters XIV, most of which are qualifiers to regional tournament finals in Japan and China. Street Fighter fans can also join the PS4 Street Fighter Asia Amateur Tournament, for a chance to win USD 3,000 cash. There will also be a Singapore qualifier tournament for Tekken 7, whose winner will advance to the King of the Iron Fist tournament in Japan this 10 December.


And of course, the annual FIFA tournament, the GameStart Championship Cup, is back, with support from Xbox Singapore, and prizes sponsored by GameStart, Xbox and Monitor Sponsor, ViewSonic. There will also be an Overwatch Champions Singapore Tournament, co-sponsored by Blizzard and Armageddon.


Bandai Namco Entertainment won’t just be hosting a Tekken 7 tourney, but they will also be showcasing other games like Tales of Berseria.

Meanwhile,  Fans who visit particular booth can get a chance to win Secret Lab gaming chairs, ViewSonic 27” monitors and MSI notebooks. They will need to visit specific booths to complete activities or quests to get the chance to win. According to GameStart Asia,



The Quest, presented by Armaggeddon, is also a great reason to check out the various merchandise

booths, such as local retailer TOG (Toy or Game), Secret Lab, Armaggeddon, Liongeeks and Xmashed

Gear, who will be unveiling new gaming tee designs at the event. Fans of game art will have plenty of

The SGCafe List: Fall 2016"s returning anime you should watch out for

We are continuing our look at the upcoming Fall 2016 anime season, and after taking a look at some new anime titles which fans will be seeing for the first time next season, we are now taking a look at seven titles which are all titles which many of you might be familiar with.


These are all anime that are either new seasons, 2nd cours, remakes, or complete spin-offs of titles which we may all be familiar with. After a whole lot of arguing among ourselves, we’ve all agreed on these seven returning anime, and they are:


WWW.Working!!


www-working-key-visual-1


We loved Working!, and were actually quite saddened when it ended, however, when we heard that the series’ spin-off web manga was also getting adapted, we were quite overjoyed with the news. Expect a whole lot of laughs from this series, which will be set in a different branch of the Wagnaria family restaurant.


Bungou Stray Dogs Season 2


5d053f2d53165b4232fac133e4794bb5


After that cliffhanger of an ending to last season, we may finally get some answers with season 2, which will pick up where the first season ended. So, what will happen to our classic Japanese literary characters-turned-detectives? And how will they fare against the Americans? Looks like we will be finding out soon enough!


Sound! Euphonium Season 2


hibike-euphonium-season-2-anime-visual-02-lq


Kitauji High’s brass band is back, and after a tough road to the Regionals, they have finally made it to the National competition, however, trouble seems to be brewing along the way… again. But then again, we all know that Kyoto Animation will find a way…


Haikyuu!!: Karasuno High VS Shiratorizawa Academy


eace85fbfc8939368209f4f8e142a19c1474597564_full


Is there any reason why we shouldn’t be excited about this third season of Haikyuu!!? The Karasuno boys are back, and they are really going to have their work cut out for them with a very formidable opponent.


Natsume’s Book of Friends Go


19b0c7f10d256ea3fcaaaca745333aec1474597015_full


This anime has topped many online rankings in Japan as one of the most anticipated anime of next season, and with good reason, as many fans are just that excited to see Natsume and Nyanko-sensei at it again, and helping out their friends, humans and youkai alike.


Mobile Suit Gundam: The Iron Blooded Orphans Season 2


20160920151356787


It’s Gundam, nuf said.


Brave Witches


bravewitches_visual-png


We started with a spin-off, and now, we’re ending with a spin-off! As many of you guessed, Brave Witches is a spin-off of Strike Witches, and it follows a different international group of witches fighting against the Neuroi called the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing… AKA the Brave Witches. They are based in Orussia, and are actually quite infamous themselves.


So that’s it, our picks for returning anime to watch out for next season. You can also check out our picks for NEW anime through this link.

The SGCafe List: Fall 2016"s returning anime you should watch out for

[VIDEO] Sunrise releases a live-action "Documentary" about survivors of Mobile Suit Gundam"s One Year War

The One Year War is one of the most important events for any Gundam fan, as it started the entire Gundam franchise. It introduced us to plenty of unforgettable characters, like Amuro Ray, Char Aznable, Sayla Mass, Lala Suneh, Ramba Ral, and many more.


Sunrise recently released a “documentary” short video about the One Year War titled “Gundam Behind the Front.” It features what has happened to the lives of two of the conflict’s survivors, an engineer from the Principality of Zeon and another engineer, this time from the Earth Federation.





The video was made by Japanese media arts studio, Rhizomatiks, and was first shown during the Sunrise Festival 2016 event last August. Many of the displays featured in the video are exhibits from Gundam Front Tokyo in Odaiba.

Jojo"s Bozarre Adventure live-action movie officially happening

After a domain name was registered to Warner Brothers, it seems that it’s finally official, as we are really having a live-action Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure movie! However, unlike the rumors have claimed, it won’t be adapting Part 3, Stardust Crusaders, but part 4, which is Diamond is Unbreakable.





As featured in the video, Kento Yamazaki will be playing the4th Jojo, Jousuke Higashikata, with Yusuke Iseya playing the 3rd Jojo, Jotaro Kujo. The film is officially titled JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond wa Kudakenai Dai-Ichi-Shō (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I).


news_header_jojoeiga


The film will be directed by Takashi Miike (Crows Zero, Live-action Terraformars) and will be a co-production between Warner Brothers and TOHO. It aims to cover the entire fourth part, which follows the adventures of Jousuke, with Jotaro acting as his mentor. Because Part 4 is actually quite long, TBS producer Takashi Hirano has said that they are looking into making sequels for the film to fit the entire story of part 4.


Filming will be done in the Spanish town of Sitges, though they did admit that they already knew that the original manga was set in Japan. They decided to adapt Part 4 because it featured a Japanese protagonist, therefore eliminating the “Racelift” allegations.

The SGCafe List: The NEW Fall 2016 Anime we are most excited about

The current Summer 2016 season is almost over, and as the upcoming Fall 2016 season prepares to take over, we take a look at seven new anime we are really excited to check out. These seven new anime are all new titles which haven’t had any anime adaptations prior to next season, and are not spin-offs of any existing anime adaptations. This means that there are no sequel or spin-off anime in this list, like Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 and Sound! Euphonium Season 2.


After a whole lot of arguing among ourselves, we’ve all agreed on these seven new anime, and they are:


March Comes in Like a Lion


954df1b723761975e08dec0c03bdc0341474598018_full


While we found difficulty in choosing which anime to include in our list, we all agreed on March Comes in Like a Lion without any resistance at all, as we are all excited to see this anime. Based on Chica Umino’s bestselling, critically-acclaimed, and multi-award-winning manga, the story follows a young shougi player named Rei, who matures as the story progresses, as well as his relationship to his neighbors, the Kawamoto sisters, Akari, Hinata, and Momo.


Girlish Number


cqwpjoiuiaav5a4


In Japan, voice acting is a huge industry, and some are even treated like rock stars, with huge fan followings around the world. However, getting that superstar status as a voice actress is tough in Japan, and that is where the story of the main protagonist, Chitose Karasuma, comes along. She is a university student aiming at becoming a seiyuu, and she certainly has a tough road ahead of her. The series is actually part of a new multimedia franchise, which also includes a light novel written by My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU light novel creator, Wataru Watari, as well as a manga.


Drifters


45318ca817735bbef7756d037e3aec5e1427493716_full


Based on Hellsing creator, Kouta Hirano’s alternate history manga, Drifters promises a whole lot of violence as it pits some of history’s most famous and influential figures against one another in a war for supremacy. One side features the Drifters, which is comprised of Oda Nobunaga, Scipio Africanus, Hannibal Barca, Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid, and more, while the other side, the Ends, feature Hijikata Toushizou, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, J’eanne D’Arc, and more. Oh, and it promises to be a bloodbath too!


Touken Ranbu -Hanamaru-


tumblr_o4mmb6sjem1qkonr7o1_500


Based on the highly popular browser game by Nitroplus and DMM, Touken Ranbu is considered the Kantai Collection for girls, as it features anthropomorphic swords as handsome young men. Expect some very beautiful animation for Touken Ranbu -Hanamaru-, as the series will be animated by none other than ufotable, which is known for beautiful animation sequences and thrilling action. Who here is excited for the Sword Boys?


The Great Passage


tumblr_inline_o46lfuaz021tq4vgb_500


The Great Passage is the latest addition to the Noitamina Animation Bloc, which featured such classics like Honey & Clover, AnoHana, and many others. The anime follows the employees of the publishing company, Genbu Shobou, as they work to compile a medium-sized Japanese dictionary titled “The Great Passage”.


Occultic; Nine


99999


If you liked the Science Adventure visual novels like Steins;Gate, Chaos;Head, Chaos;Child, and Robotics;Notes, then you might like Occultic;Nine, as the anime will be based on Steins;Gate creator, Chiyomaru Shikura’s light novel series of the same name. Though it is not considered a part of the Science Adventure Game series, the series has been described to have a similar feel to them. The series will follow nine characters, all of whom have connections with the occult, and they must work together to solve a mystery.


Kiss Him, Not Me


d82ec0b1e3a840ba8b087713930a69821457701777_full


What happens when a fujoshi becomes the center of her own reverse harem of handsome young men? She ships them with each other of course! The anime is based on Junko’s bestselling and award-winning shoujo manga series, which follows Kae Serinuma, an overweight fujoshi who suddenly loses a ton of weight. Her sudden weight loss results to various guys getting attracted to her, however, she’s just not interested in them and would rather have her suitors go out with each other than with her.


So that’s it, our picks for NEW anime to watch out for next season. Tune in tomorrow as we take a look at the sequels and spin-offs that we are most excited about for next season!

These are the Real-World Locations from Persona 5

Unlike Persona 4, which is set in a small town called Inaba, Persona 5 is set in Tokyo, and with all the teasers and videos being released for the upcoming JRPG, it seems that many fans have now found some of the real areas where some events of the game took place.


ayimo9y4nr7zcuj1bdh7


One of the places for interest for gamers should be where the protagonist lives, and that is “Yongenjaya”. The place is actually a play on words, as the real location is actually Sangenjaya, which is located just west of Shibuya. It is actually a play on words, with “yon” referring to “four” and the “san” in Sangenjaya referring to three.

A Jojo"s Bizarre Adventure live-action movie?! Domain Name Registration hints at it

Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc. has reportedly registered a new domain name for a Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure movie, as it was reported that the domain name, jojo-movie.jp has been registered to the film-making giant.


93a39815950fcbfb5ea6b332940b4fe71474990323_full


It was reported that the domain name was registered towards the end of August 2016, and as Crunchyroll has noted, visiting that domain name will lead to this website: https://warnerbros.co.jp/movie/jojo/. Crunchyroll also noted that a @jojomovie_jp twitter page has also been opened.


The registration of the domain name also revives the rumors of a live-action  adaptation of the series’ third part, Stardust Crusaders, which focuses on Jotaro Kujo. It was back in 2012 when the rumors started, when Cyzo Women’s Blog reported on plans for a live-action Stardust Crusaders movie. It was Cyzo Daily News which nailed the rumors of a Fullmetal Alchemist live-action movie.

Kento Yamazaki from the live-action Death Note drama has been reportedly cast as Jotaro. The Cyzo source stated that “various troubles brought the previous attempts to a stand still, but, this time, concrete plans for a production are being developed, and barring obstacles from top executives, the adaptation looks likely to happen.”

Which old school anime from Japan"s Showa Era do fans want a reboot of? New poll finds out

These days, reboots are everywhere, from movies to TV shows to comics, I mean, the Spider-Man movies are getting rebooted for the Nth time already! The same is being done in Japan, as several anime are getting reboots themselves.


As some anime are getting their own reboots, such as Space battleship Yamato getting rebooted for Space Battleship Yamato 2199, many are asking for updated versions of some classic anime as well, and that has become the subject of a new poll by animeanime.jp, as they asked 475 readers to vote for the anime they want to see a reboot of, particularly anime from Japan’s Showa-era (1926-1989) . Here are the Top 10 from that poll:


9/10 (tie) – Armored Trooper VOTOMS, Space Adventure Cobra


8 – Gunbuster


7 – Aoki Ryuusei SPT Layzner


6 – Captain Tsubasa


5 – Sherlock Hound


4 – Dragon Ball


3 – Akira


akira_1988_poster


2 – Super Dimension Fortress Macross


the-super-dimension-fortress-macross-full-406051


1 – Galaxy Express 999


galaxy-express-cover-locandina1


Galaxy Express 999 is a classic, and fans made their voices heard when they voted it as the classic Showa Era anime they want to see a reboot of, beating out the very first Macross anime, Super Dimension Fortress Macross, which would not only be a hit among mecha fans, but idol anime fans as well if it were given a reboot.


Akira and Dragon Ball are also classics of their own, and it really does seem that fans want to see the adventures of a young Son Goku using modern animation techniques, as well as Akira, which prophesied that Tokyo would win the bid for the 2020 Olympics… but the world might end.


So, which old school anime from the Showa era do you want to see a reboot of?
