Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing all new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com. Around 220 new items are covered in this week, including new J-Pop, Anime as well as Japanese, Hong Kong and Western movie releases and much more.

From the publisher: Appleseed EX Machina is set in the city of Olympus, Briareos, a cyborg soldier and Deunan, a young female warrior, are both partners and lovers. As members of the special elite force, their duties are to help protect and maintain the city.

The two fighters find their partnership tested in a new way by the arrival of a new member to their ranks named Tereus. Using Briareos's DNA as a blueprint, Tereus uncannily resembles Briareos...both physically and mentally. Tereus also has strong romantic feelings for Deunan..... Who does she choose?

Aside from the exciting Sci-fi animated movie, Play-Asia.com also brings you Mika Nakashima's newest single Sakura - Hanagasumi right in time for this Spring season. Her voice carries a unique timbre and she has an impressive vocal range, with this talent, she seeks to recreate the image of Spring and Sakura through music.

Namie Amuro once again established her standing as a trend setter in the field of fashion and music as Vidal Sassoon's image girl. Her newest work, 60s 70s 80s [CD+Poster Limited Edition and CD+DVD Edition] is a mixture of nostalgia and chic. Although she has faced set backs in her career, her talents as an artist shines out like the liquid diamond that coats her glossy mane.
