Teaser for “Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness” Released!

This is a teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a โ€œCG anime seriesโ€ by CAPCOM, which will be available on Netflix sometime in 2021. Unless CAPCOM is holding back a surprise or two, it looks pretty certain that this series will feature Resident Evil regulars Claire Redfield and Leonย Kennedy, both of who made their debut in Resident Evil 2. Personally, I think Leon gets way too much attention in the Resident Evil universe, but Iโ€™m glad Claire is getting another opportunity in the spotlight.๐Ÿ˜Š

Claire looks somewhat older (as does Leon, of course), so itโ€™s safe to say that Infinite Darkness takes place many years after the events of Raccoon City and around the time of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 or Resident Evil 6. Other than that, though, itโ€™s difficult to determine what Infinite Darkness will be about; I can only assume it will be something in the vein of previous Resident Evil 3D animations (such as the film Resident Evil: Vendetta from 2017), although the focus appears to be on horror rather than action. Itโ€™ll be interesting to see what information the next trailer will provide us with.

Daily Heroine: Neptina

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Neptina, the young mermaid from the 60s anime/cartoon Marine Boy, known as Kaitei Shonen Marin in Japan. In Marine Boy she was voiced by Corinne Orr (who, incidentally, also voiced Marine Boy himself) and in Kaitei Shonen Marin, she was voiced by Yoshiko Matsuo. I recall Marine Boy being an incredibly exciting show when I watched it as a kid, but my memories of it are very vague. I certainly didn’t recall that Marine Boy was friends with a cute mermaid, who wears nothing but a large pearl around her neck. That was a pleasant rediscovery I made when I watched Marine Boy again as an adult.๐Ÿ˜

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.๐Ÿ˜Š

Daily Heroine: Eiko Magami

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Eiko (or A-ko, if you prefer) Magami, from the 80s anime film Project A-ko (and its numerous sequels). Eiko, with her eye-catching long red hair and iconic Japanese high school uniform, is one of my favourite anime characters of all time. In fact, she is a big reason I got into anime in the first place (along with Mai Kuju, of course). She is cute, sassy and devoted to her best friend Shiiko. On top of that, she has superhuman strength!๐Ÿ˜ฎ In the original Japanese version she was voiced by Miki Ito, and in the English version she was voiced by Stacey Gregg (who now goes by the name of Stacy Jefferson).

Daily Heroine: Kallan James

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Captain Kallan James from the 80s TV animation titled Thunderbirds 2086 (known as Scientific Rescue Team Technoboyager in Japan). As you might be able to guess, Thunderbirds 2086 is loosely based on Gerry Anderson’s well-known Thunderbirds TV show. It aired during school hours in my city, so I only ever got to see one episode as a kid, but I do remember really liking it; especially since, unlike the original Thunderbirds, it featured a female member. And a pretty one at that!๐Ÿ˜€ Unfortunately, I cannot be certain who voiced Kallan, because cartoons from that era are woefully vague when it comes to the voice cast, but in the Japanese version (where, incidentally, she went by the name Catherine Hayward) she was voiced by Manami Ito.

Daily Heroine: Kathy

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Kathy from Animal Treasure Island, the 70s animated film from Japan. In the original Japanese version (which is titled Doubutsu Takarajima), she was voiced by Minori Matsushima. Unfortunately, I was unable to find out who voiced her in the English-dubbed version, which is the version I first saw as a kid. Kathy, a pretty yet feisty gun-toting pirate girl, is the first heroine I really fell in love with, and so she is the root of my lifelong admiration for heroines in general. If only she had appeared in other movies or an animated TV series. That would have undoubtedly made her my number one animated girl!๐Ÿ˜†
