toco toco ep.38, Shoji Murahama, Animation Producer

In the latest episode of toco toco the team follows Murahama Shoji, who is an animation producer currently working as a manager at the Emon Studio. After working at Gainax on acclaimed anime series and founding the Gonzo studio, Murahama is now working on several anime series in this new international studio, aiming at bringing globalization to the anime industry. We will follow Murahama during a themed-game of airsoft, where players dressed as characters from various post-apocalyptic universes such as Mad Max or Fallout gather to play. After that, we will visit the Emon studio to learn more about the company's philosophy and its founder, Li Haolin, who will share with us his company mission, one of which is to nullify the borders of the animation industry. As a science-fiction lover, Murahama will also share with us his perception of imaginary worlds, and the thin line that separates them from the ordinary.

OPGamers Pilot Episode

Hey gamers a new show will be coming to your YouTube pretty soon. The show is from the folks at OPGamers.com. Recently they launched the pilot episode of their show, which you can check below.

Quick Review: OPGamers pilot episode is on the right track. It has a fun host with gamer Eddie Mady, and a great supporting co-hosts. The show is part clip show, part comedy show. Clip show section highlights some of funniest moments people have uploaded in gaming. Clips like Luigi riding dirty, granny playing GTA and more.

What really will get gamers interested is the OPgamers clip of the week. Here OPgamers will be offering 1000 dollars gift card to GameSpot to the winner. If that is not showing love to their audience and gaming community don't know what is. On the comedy sketch side it was pretty funny. However some of the actors could use a little tweaking when it comes to delivery.  Since comedy is subjective and this show is geared to a certain audience. The jokes can be a hit or miss for outsiders looking in. Other than some tweeks on jokes, the show is very impressive. I can see this really being a major hit on YouTube once the staff finds their footing. OPgamers got our subscription and they should have yours too.

Indie Publisher Darkrose Studios Launches TRDWTR

Hey Otakus and Geeks here is some cool news for you from newcomers Darkrose Studios. Darkrose is a new comic publishing company that is getting ready to launch their new franchise TRDWTR (Technological Research and Development Working Toward a Resolution). Check out the details below.

TRDWTR is Darkrose Studios’ first title. It is a 30-part graphic novel series, set in a plausible geopolitical future. It follows a team of hi-tech special operatives, who have become the only force standing between hope and anarchy. The novel has been written and created by Morgan Rosenblum, founder of Darkrose Studios, and illustrated by Ray Dillon, best known for his work on Borderlands 2 and Game of Thrones. TRDWTR Issue One will premiere on Times Square, at the Midtown Comics book store on September 10th, 2014. Issue One is limited to 500 prints and will be sold at $4.99 per copy exclusively at Midtown Comics stores. TRDWTR Part One (containing issues 1 - 4) will become available on September 30th on Amazon.com and in brick-and-mortar stores nationwide a month thereafter. In addition to print publications, Darkrose Studios are also working on a live-action series based on the graphic novel. The teaser trailer of the live-action series which you can see below.

With the series in production since April 2014, Mr. Rosenblum aims to release the entire first season in mid- 2015. Along with the graphic novel and the live action series, the TRDWTR website also plays an important role in immersing TRDWTR fans into the story. It challenges them to become TRDWTR operatives and complete various real-world missions. Much in the style of the Command & Conquer game series, the missions are accompanied by live-action video clips of TRDWTR characters interacting with the players to debrief, congratulate and antagonize them. As a reward for completing these missions the players can unlock large portions of the graphic novel, as well as an animated motion comic voiced by the actors of the series. According to Morgan Rosenblum, the immersive storytelling experience that Darkrose Studios create for their fans set their titles apart from the other book launches. Mr. Rosenblum will be chairing a panel on the topics of trans-media storytelling and self-publishing at New York Comic Con in October 2014.
