Bleach live action movie releases its first trailer


Bleach is one of the longest running manga and anime series which was ended rather suddenly on the weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Focusing on Soul Reaper Kurosaki Ichigo, a human with the ability to see evil spirits, Bleach is beloved by fans for its large scale battles and wide range of characters. The trailer above gives us a good look at what Bleach characters look like in live action. We also see some of the monster hollows which serve as the story's antagonists. Japan gets to see the Bleach movie on July 20th.

Netflix’s live-action take on anime ‘Mob Psycho 100’ gets first poster

Anime seems to be an integral part of Netflix’s agenda. One of its latest ventures involve a partnership with TV Tokyo to create the live-action series based on the anime Mob Psycho 100. The supernatural-themed anime was based of the webcomic made by artist One, who is best known for creating One Punch Man (if you watch the anime or read the comics, you can see the similarities in style). Now, the live-action series gets its first poster. In it we see Tatsuomi Hamada as main protagonist Shigeo Kageyama standing with his classic bowl cut and black uniform on. On his left we see Tsubomi (played by Yoda Yuki) and on his right is Arataka Reigen, Kageyama’s supposed mentor. Mob Psycho 100 will be airing first in Japan in January 2018 before hitting Netflix.

Duolingo finally has a Japanese language course, available first on iOS

It took a while (or at least it seems that way to us) but finally Duolingo has a Japanese language course on its service. But at the time of its launch, it’s currently available for iOS users. An Android version is expected to drop soon—but there isn’t a specific date said yet. The language course will teach you to understand 100 Kanji and all the Hiragana characters and will focus heavily on real-world interactions like how to ask for directions and how to order food. So, if you’re planning a trip to Japan in the near future, now will be the time to start learning.

The new course is said to teach all the grammar and vocabulary you need to pass the JLPT N5, a popular Japanese language proficiency test, and it abides by the JF Standard, a Japanese language education framework for describing language ability. There’s also a new “language assistant” for iOS called the “Duolingo bot.” Much like the chatbots in Facebook Messenger and Google Assistant, it’ll respond to your language questions conversationally and provide you with corrections and suggested responses where appropriate. It can even boost the complexity as you progress with your learning.

Japan will let tourists pay for goods and services using fingerprints

Worried about cash and credit cards when you’re traveling? Japan wants to ease your fears by letting you pay for things using only your fingerprints. The Japanese government hopes this new voluntary system will alleviate fears of the tourists and also help decrease crime. When you arrive in the country as a tourist, you’ll be able to register your fingerprints, personal data, and credit card information at a kiosk in the airport. This can then be used later for hotels and shops, go through tax exemption procedures, and help verify their identities.

It’s set to kick off this summer in 300 shops, hotels, and restaurants in some of the country’s most popular prefectures and might spread across the country by spring of 2017, if the testing goes well. They aim to make it more widespread by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
