When we think Halloween, we think a number of things bound to happen on that awesome annual days: telling scary stories, setting up fake haunted houses, kids trick or' treating around their respective neighborhoods, people finding Halloween-themed episodes on their television sets, comic colletors picking up their copies of free-to-access comic book items at their local comic shops (if that Halloween day is on the last October Saturday of the year that is), and last but not least, the option to dress up in costumes in public regardless of if they be home-made or store-bought. While you are never too old to enjoy Halloween, it is indeed a day worth celebrating for anyone who is a fan of science-fiction, fantasy, and/or horror and likes wearing costumes or just masks.

I do not know how many of you are keeping up to date on what is going on with the U.S. film and television industry in regards to its upcoming manga/anime-based films, but it is official that Warner Bros.' live-action webmovie re-interpretation of the internationally famous Japanese horror comic book serial Death Note will tell the muderous-magic book tale at an R-rated level (with the director teasing that R-rated depictions of nudity and coarse language will be included), a creative decision that appeared to have caused a division of the Death Note fanbase to take place in terms of whether or not to approve of the matter with some already arguing on online forums that such a decision will mean the risk of the America-based studio itself going too far in its attempt to create a Death Note story meant specially for America-based adult viewers who are not into either Japanese animation or Japanese comics. To be honest, while I'm not sure about the nudity part, considering the unfriendly human environment in the animated television series adaptation of the comic book serial, I can see this movie working out well as long as the physcological focus on the killer mindsets (including that of the protagonist) within the story is maintained.

Back in 2014, Brazil held the 2014 FIFA World Cup men's football tournament. In case some of you are not sport fans, FIFA is like the olympics except it is multiple nations just playing one sport against each other. For fans of anime, manga, and Japanese video games, 2014's FIFA proved to be one they can never forget, and we have the Pokémon mascot Pikachu to thank as the iconic fictional mouse got to serve as the Japanese team's mascot during the sport event with approval from Nintendo's The Pokémon Company of course (and let's thank Nintendo too for making this possible). However, Pikachu is not the first Japanese pop culture icon to officually serve as a sport team mascot as another icon, Leo from the Osamu Tezuka-created manga serial Jungle Emperor got this opportunity back in 1978, licensed for mascot use from Osamu Tezuka's Tezuka Productions by the Japan-based baseball team Seibu lions (currently called "Saitama Seibu Lions").

For many years, a number of filmmaking countries (including the United States and Canada of course) each has maintained a history of creating works of fiction intended to re-interpret characters and/or stories that originated in storytelling from another country, sometimes changing the setting of the story in particular and/or cultural backgrounds of main characters. The U.S. film and television industry, for example, has a history of creating films and television programs based onJapanese content; 1960's The Magnificent Seven being a cowboy re-imagining of the 1954 samurai-themed film The Seven Samurai, the 1993 Saturday morning cartoon series Sonic the Hedgehog being based on the popular Japanese video game franchise from Sega, 2008's Speed Racer being a remake of the 1960s anime with American actors playing and capturing the visual likenesses of the classic's main characters, 2014's Godzilla being a hit film that placed Godzilla's main battle in the U.S. while being faithful to the character's essence, etc.  Read more...
