Felicia Day Emmys

Last night was the 65th Emmy Awards. While there was plenty of nerd royalty in attendance at the Emmys, the show lacked any real defining geek moments (Although the James Cromwell fun fact--that he was the only person to say the phrase 'star trek' on the show--was totally awesome). We've come up with five ways the show could have been geekier and therefore way better: Read More...

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FACES

I'll admit, not much happened this weekend. Was everyone too busy with football, the Emmys and GTA V to do newsworthy things? Probably. In any case, here are some important things that happened last weekend. You probably missed them. Welcome to the Daily Geek.

doctor who anime

by Katherine Erlikh

Well, I mean, it was bound to happen sooner or later - there's a "Supernatural" anime, and there's an anime of BBC "Sherlock" or something that keeps floating around everywhere on Tumblr in gifset form... why not a "Doctor Who" anime? Well, it exists now. You can breathe easy.

+1-cast

"How did we keep track of what was going on? That was really hard," director Dennis Iladis says of his recently-release sci-fi thriller "+1." In it, teens at a wild house party discover that not only is time looping around them, but it's creating doubles. The film looks at three friends--David (Rhys Wakefield), Teddy (Logan Miller), and Allison (Colleen Dengel) as each finds their nights spiraling out of control as their doubles begin reliving the greatest and worst night of their lives.

We spoke with Illadis, who directed the 2009 remake of "Last House on the Left" as well as the harrowing drama "Hardcore" about teens in peril (in time) and what he would do if he met his own double.

Rhys Wakefield and Ashley Hinshaw in "+1"

If you could relive a moment all over again--say, reversing something you wish you hadn't or maybe enjoying the best moment of your life--would you? Now say you could have that moment back, but there was the problem of a pesky second you about to relive the same moment as you. What would you do?

"I'd probably have him do all of the chores I wouldn't want to do," Actor Rhys Wakefield tells me.

Wakefield's character David in this week's new release "+1" has somewhat more ambitious aims with his own double, attempting to salvage a damaged relationship with his girlfriend Jill (Ashley Hinshaw) as a bizarre time loop has David, his friends, and an ever-increasing number of duplicates at a massive house party experiencing the same moments over and over in the same night.

The Alamo Drafthouse-hosted, genre-mashup film festival known as Fantastic Fest is in full swing today, bringing action, science fiction, horror, foreign, and way left of center films to adventurous attendees in Austin, Texas. Even though it’s the first day, we’ve already been treated to people vomiting blood, a bizarre twist on Japanese tentacle porn, and lots of gratuitous nudity. All par for the course for this fan-fueled movie spectacle.

Festival favorite Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo premiered his time-bending film Timecrimes here in 2007, which quickly became a festival favorite thanks in no small part to the wacky and lovable antics of the director himself. He is here in attendance himself, and the film will be screening as part of Fantastic Fest yet again, and an awesome, limited-edition vinyl of the soundtrack produced in partnership with Mondo will be available for purchase at the screening, and at a later date for fans online.

Composer and writer Brian Satterwhite collaborated with Mondo on the vinyl project: "Timecrimes has been hailed by critics and audiences alike as one of the best time-travel films of our time. Much of the film's success relies heavily upon Eugenio Mira's masterful score. His minimalistic approach maximizes the subtle tones and nuances of the narrative with surgical precision while adding a highly refined layer of polish to this high-concept science-fiction thriller.”

The soundtrack will be made available on black 180 gram vinyl, and randomly inserted milky yellow/clear vinyl. It will be available for purchase at the Fantastic Fest screening of Timecrimes on September 26, and will be for sale online in the future, so follow @MondoNews for updates.

Tropic-of-the-Sea cropped

Satoshi Kon's "Tropic of the Sea" is a classic type of story that pits the traditional ways against the forces of modernization. It's set in a small fishing village where the keepers of the local shrine tend to a very special object: A mermaid egg. According to local tradition, every 60 years, they must return the egg to the sea, and the mermaid will send them a new one to take care of. In return, she protects the town. When a developer arrives with big plans, the traditional ways are threatened—and anyway, 60 years is a long time to keep the faith. The story focuses on three generations of shrine priests, and it has some surprising twists.

Tropic of the Sea

As fascinating as this manga is in its own right, it's also a milestone in modern anime and manga history. Kon, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2010 at the age of 46, is best known as the director of the critically acclaimed and award-winning "Paprika," as well as "Millennium Actress" and "Tokyo Godfathers." He started his career as a manga artist, though, and he was the assistant to "Akira" creator Katsuhiro Otomo for a time. "Tropic of the Sea" is his first full-length work.

Originally titled "Kaikisen," "Tropic of the Sea" is a beautiful manga that is drawn in an open, deceptively simple style that's easy for non-manga readers to follow. The story is more than an environmental fable; despite the fact that it is only one volume long, the characters have surprising depth and the story itself goes beyond the usual heroes-vs.-villains tropes. Check out our exclusive 23-page preview, below, to see for yourself.

CHECK OUT ALL OF MTV'S FALL PREVIEWS HERE!

THIS IS ONE OF MTV GEEK'S MOST ANTICIPATED MANGA OF THE FALL!

"Voice Over: Seiyuu Academy," which launches in November, is a shoujo manga with all the elements that make shoujo manga great: A plucky heroine, supportive friends, love interests—and an interesting setting, in this case a school where students are training to be voice actors for anime. The creator is Maki Minami, whose name will be familiar to shoujo fans from her earlier manga "S.A." We talked to editor Pancha Diaz about what we can expect from this new series.
