A website created by JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) was made to provide more information on a new satellite that will be launched into space later this year. The first post on the site is an anime short film created by studio White Fox. The purpose of the film is to raise awareness and explain the mission of the GPM/DPR satellite.

The satellite is a joint project between JAXA and America's NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and is planned to be launched from the Space Center at Tanegashima using a Japanese HII-A rocket. "GPM/DPR" stands for "Global Precipitation Measurement/Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar." The device will scan the entire Earth every 3 hours generating global precipitation maps.

DPR Special Movie on MAL
Modified by Naruleach, Oct 20, 2013 7:54 PM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Man, that's oddly appropriate for White Fox to handle.

Just one thing: I did not report this news because it is made by White Fox. If it were made by any other studio I would have reported it as well. Your grunges seem to be coming at the wrong place.

Besides, if anything I won't call White Fox's Steins;Gate sucks at all. Very much on the contrary. So there you are.

i got no grudge against White Fox but they do not deserve the attention they are getting from fans like they are doing great sakuga animation, so thats my point like really Rewrite as a anime should be done by KyoAni because of how many action scenes it will have i heard

so sorry if im voicing out my opinion about them

Why should Rewrite be animated by KyoAni based on the fact it has action scenes?

don't forget jormungand - i'd hardly say the animation in that was low-rent - one of the best looking shows of the past couple of years.........also, dug the short - nice to see more stuff on jaxa after continuing to enjoy the truly excellent (and long running, thankfully) uchuu kyoudai.

Someday I hope.

Anyways, White Fox ftw. Hataraku Mao-sama!, Jormungand, and Steins;Gate are among some of my favorite works from their studio.

I thought there was already a JAXA anime. If you add Robotics Notes then 2.

So.. What does this GPM/DPR satellite do?
Seems like it can cancel out a storm based on the short animation... but I doubt that it really does that.

Erm. Why mentioning Jormungand here? Action scenes there were quite good but all other moments had very low animation. I'd better remind Tears to Tiara but people here just don't like it probably.

And Why White Fox for ReWrite? Because they made animated version of OP.

And I really pissed off with people complaining that KyioAni only is fitting for making Key shows. Like no other studio could make it. Yes, they did a great job with Air, Kanon and Clannad but as they are now I won't give them any more of Key titles(and they won't take any because of their current politics "we make only titles we own", bare with it at last).

What.
Poor visual experience was one of the main reasons I dropped it.

I don't get the hate on White Fox. They made the best shows these past years. Steins Gate, Katanagatari, Jormungand, HaMao. If you are saying those are not top notch shows then you must be blind...

I agree that Steins Gate and Jormungand's animation was not even comparable to the likes of Pro I.G, KyoAni, ufotable etc. but HaMao's animation wasn't that bad. The battle scenes were pretty good and the first episode was awesome in terms of animation. I think they can do it if they put more into it.

Anyways, cool news. I would like to know more about JAXA. I definitely think White Fox is up to it.

Perhaps you missed the sentence right after the GPM/DPR line in my post, when I wrote: " The device will scan the entire Earth every 3 hours generating global precipitation maps". So in the anime the girl is seen to use the satellite's data to predict (correctly) that it will be sunny on the wedding day even though it was stormy earlier.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

Watch Uchuu Kyoudai. It's still going on and it's a brilliant work made from the collaborated effort of NASA and JAXA.

There are tones of forced drama and stereotypes(they pictured russians as like in some cliché american movie) and the pace is too slow.

First thing in my mind, Space Brothers.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.
