Adult Drop, One Third, Eagle Talon 7, Walk Together Japanese Film Trailers

Atelier Anime UK News Spring Anime Guide 2014 Part 2 ImageThis is the first of two trailer posts for this weekend. The only film trailer that I like in this post is the crime caper “One Third” which stars Tatsuya Fujiwara. I guess I’m in the mood for glossy fun.

Talking about fun, I took part in the #SaveShenmue day over at Twitter.

SaveShenmue Tweet

I had a blast tweeting and retweeting comments in support of the legendary game Shenmue. It’s one of those titles that captures the imagination of all who play it and becomes a cult hit. Alas, the game didn’t get a third part to continue the story but fans might be able to persuade video game companies to look into making the game. The next #Saveshenmue day is May 03rd.
