This entry is self translation of preprevious entry. For TEXHNOLYZE Blu-ray box release, I wish some presidents of foreign Anime company see these sentences. If the situation happens, a kind of plessure from oversea reached to Japan, TEXHNOLYZE Blu-ray box may be released all over the world. Please release...
And more, I am not a professional translator. If you find out some mistakes, please teach me.
First, see above the entry. It says "2015 is 20th memorial year for Manga creator and illustrator Yoshitoshi ABe. He started working 20 years ago. Special illustration book will be published soon for cerebrating it. And Blu-ray box(serial experiments lain, NieA_7, Haibane Renmei) will be released again at the same time." But this good news doesn't announce about "TEXHNOLYZE" at all. I'm so sad.
Now, may I introduce the greatest remarkable animation "TEXHNOLYZE?" More people must know TEXHNOLYZE's fine points coz I wanna get Blu-ray BOX of TEXHNOLYZE. The more popular TEXHNOLYZE, the sooner the Blu-ray Box releasing.*1
BTW, this animation is not broadcasted in the Internet officially in my sight. You have two way to watch it regally. DVD Rental or buying DVD for North America. (in Japan. I don't know present status in foreign country, sorry.) But please watch it...everyone... If u come on my house, I have all of DVDs. Of course mine is first limited version.
Say nothing, See Episode 1-5
I do apologize, I'm afraind this animation is boring first. Maybe correct expression is difficult to understand, than boring. But watch Epi. 1-5 at minimum. Epi.5 has turning point of story. And when you check Epi.10, I think you will not be able to stop watching. YOU WILL? YOU WON'T!!!! Half measures won't do!!!!
Woops, I haven't explained about this animation, sorry. Well, please google it for detail. But saying shortly,
Near future Sci Fi story, extremely dark, deperessed, and almost all of characters are male.
That's all.(kidding;) This story doesn't have female character appeal MOE. And really very dark first to last. So I don't recommend you unlike dark films. But If you like these points, you will enjoy it. And more, if you love dark yaoi story, must watch.
TEXHNOLYZE and I
My favorite point of this animation is beautiful calm cruelness... ("Future is cruel and beautiful."「未来は残酷で美しい」is catch phrase in Japan.)...............no meaning to write cool article. I can't express goodness of TEXHNOLYZE, beyond description. Anyway, if you are not texhnolyzed, watch Epi. 1-5 at minimum. Have you been interested in TEXHNOLYZE, haven't you? So you're reading this blog now? If so, you should watch.
In addition, I'm happy to feel atmosphere like TEXHNOLYZE from "Stein;s Gate" the animation. Coz both anime are made by same director, Hiroshi Hamasaki. I think Stein;s Gate's Epi. 20 reminds me of TEXHNOLYZE. Especillaly the scene that Okabe, Chris, Moeka, and Mr.Brown are talking, it is like TEXHNOLYZE. The air looks mild hot, and it makes me feel Chijou-hen of TEXHNOLYZE*2 And they has same dry despair. "Stein;s Gate" is broadcasting again on Tokyo-MX in Japan.*3
I'll show you my impressions of TEXHNOLYZE below, so, please read after watching. Copying and pasting my impressions in 2003.
・This animation has various special feature, body modification, limb dificiencies, Yakuza, their conflicts, and so on...but, at last, this story tells very universal theme "a boy gets over parents."
・I'm very glad to see Ichise gradually gets humanity. The scene Ichise gave Big Boss piggyback for Ohnishi is good.
・Extremely funny, Ichise called tie " thing chorking"
・Kimata's last make me cry.....! Shin! Shinn! Sei! Kyu! Sai!!
・"People say, tatooing and cutting body purposely, it expresses denying kindred indirectly.........I was glad to be texhnolyzed......to show different from him...... "
・"I don't hate you.......rather I love you... so, I wanna kill you by myself." "I see" This conversation is so funny and interesting and attractive.
Does North America ver. have "Death Subtitles" ? (Death Subtitles is called "Shibou Jimaku"「死亡字幕」in Japanese. Japanese domestic ver. has the special feature. Death Subtitles works on the scene of character's death. It shows date and character's name and cause of death. Maybe it's kidding from staffs.)
In 2003, official site was very very coooooooooool, but now it is changed other site..... (I don't wanna show the URL. Please search by yourself.)
And more... I'm so depressed for this cover artwork coz Ran is version of last episode............
I think this Ichise is No.1 cool guy of all male characters by ABe sensei.
Hamasaki Kantoku read this entry, and he replied for me on Twitter, I'm sooo surprised, and excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Extremely happiness!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shin! Shin! Sei! Kyu! Sai!
@__stein こんにちはシュタイン様。ブログ嬉しく拝見いたしました。当時のスタッフとの協力の中で、ほぼ約束事に捕われず自由に作れた監督デビュー作としてとても思い入れ深い作品です。今だからこその反響でまたあの作品の成長を視たいところでBD化は願うところですね。ありがとうです。— 浜崎博嗣は蛸 (@hamasakina) 2015, 8月 28
He says, "Good afternoon, Mrs stein. I'm glad to read your entry. This animation is very memorable film, I worked as Director first. I made almost freely it with staff's co-operation, without convention. I wish Blu-ray release for growing them up with reaction now. Thank you so much."

He says, "Thank you for your introducing. I like Ichise on the cover art of vol.1 too. When I drew it first, he had bad eye look. But I redrew it about 5 times because the client said his face look too bad. lol"
And more, Hamasaki Kantoku draw new picture of Yoshii and Ran. I never dreamed I could see new TEXHNOLYZE artwork from official staff after 12 years. I'm so happy.....

Yoshii says, "...it's good that your grandfather see it too."
*1:However, really, I don't know whether this is true method for TEXHNOLYZE Blu-ray box materialized. I don't like a signature-collecting campaign, coz it's not able to be sure the selling. Cloud-funding is good ? 5〜6,0000JPY is taken in my pocket for TEXHNOLYZE Blu-ray Box on full order... Please release...
*2:In Japan, TEXHOLYZE fans call Epi.20-21 "Chijou-hen" "Chijou-hen" means the series on the ground.
*4:I went to University in 2003.
