Sentai Filmworks to Premiere First Episode of ‘Anonymous Noise’ at Anime Boston 2017

Press Release:

Fans will get a sneak peak at the most anticipated shoujo anime series of the Spring 2017 anime season. Based on the hit manga written by Ryoko Fukuyama, Anonymous Noise will make its world premiere in the USA at an exclusive, one-time screening at Anime Boston 2017.

Sentai Filmworks will host this special screening of the first episode of Anonymous Noise on Saturday April 1, 2017 in the Grand Ballroom of Sheraton Boston from 3:30 PM EDT to 4:30 PM EDT. The free screening is available to the first one-thousand registered Anime Boston attendees to line up. Attendees will also receive a free gift and be entered for a chance to win surprise giveaways at the showing.

Sentai Filmworks describes the series:

“Blessed with a beautiful voice, Nino only sings for one reason: to be found. Nino finds herself looking for two boys who left her without reason, Momo and Yuzu. By chance, all three of them end up in the same high school, and Nino discovers that her singing isn’t in vain. As they rediscover their bonds, the group realizes that time changes many things, and sometimes certain things can’t be repaired.”

Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale Debuts at Anime Boston 2017

Anime Boston 2017 will host the the English dub premiere of SWORD ART ONLINE THE MOVIE: ORDINAL SCALE before its North American tour. Be one of the first to watch this amazing dub on the big screen before it’s released anywhere! After the screening, AB 2017 guests Cherami Leigh (Asuna), Michelle Ruff (Sinon), and Patrick Seitz (Agil) will take center stage and for a special Q&A session!

About Sword Art Online:
The animated TV series Sword Art Online is based on author Reki Kawahara’s light novel (winner of the 15th Dengeki Novel Award Grand Prize) in which the protagonist Kirito fights to survive in the mysterious next-gen VRMMORPG called “Sword Art Online.” Since the first volume of the novel was published in April 2009, the series has proved extremely popular, with cumulative sales exceeding 12.5 million units in Japan and 19 million worldwide, spawning two TV anime adaptations, video games, comic books, and merchandise.

Story of Sword Art Online the Movie -Ordinal Scale-:
In 2022, the world of virtual reality was upended by the arrival of a new invention from a genius programmer, Akihiko Kayaba, called NerveGear. It was the first full-dive system, and with it, came endless possibilities to VRMMORPGs.

In 2026, a new machine called the Augma is developed to compete against the NerveGear and its successor, the Amusphere. A next-gen wearable device, the Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function like its predecessors. Instead, it uses Augmented Reality (AR) to get players into the game. It is safe, user-friendly and lets users play while they are conscious, making it an instant hit on the market. The most popular game on the system is “Ordinal Scale” (aka: OS), an ARMMORPG developed exclusively for the Augma.

Asuna and the gang have already been playing OS for a while, by the time Kirito decides to join them. They’re about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn’t all fun and games

===================================================

Tessa LeBaron – An artist from northeast Ohio.
Art has always been my passion and gateway to unsaid thoughts. My mind speaks on paper and I visually communicate with my ideas. I don’t have a specific theme I express, I create all kinds of work such as portraits, animals, vibrant landscapes, and emotional figures.

Even though I like to focus internally, I am fascinated by everything that surrounds me: abstract elements, the subconscious mind, and all kinds of music.

I work with mostly acrylic and watercolor. There is a certain flow and washy affect in my work with vibrant colors and energy. Sometimes my work is crazy with paint everywhere, yet illustrative and detailed. I want my art to leave a creative impression in
this world, giving something for people to observe and wonder upon.
