Corocoro Online Updates with Third Installment of Movie 22 Art Project

Corocoro Online has updated with the third part of the Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution Legend/Legend Collaboration Artwork Project. Translations follow:

The "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" Premiere Celebration Project! Part 3: Kosaku Anakubo of "Pocket Monsters Corocoro Ver." Fame Draws "A Rebirth Transcending Time! That One Legendary Pokémon!"




Kosaku Anakubo, creator of "Pocket Monsters Corocoro Ver.", once again drew this one Pokémon with intense passion!!

"Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", the full 3DCG remake of the legendary movie that served as the starting point for the Pokémon movie series, finally premieres Friday July 12th!!

To celebrate this return of the legend itself, legendary manga artists and celebrities that love Pokémon have drawn pictures based on "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution"!

For this third installment, the creator of the well known manga "Pocket Monsters" for the Corocoro magazines, Kosaku Anakubo, joins the project!! His series started running in Corocoro Comic in 1996, before even the anime had had its 1997 premiere, making it the first ever work of fiction to be based on the "Pocket Monsters" franchise! Lots of Pokémon, with Pippi as the centerpiece, play hilarious roles in this series, and of course Mewtwo is one of the bigger players.

And now, that one legendary Pokémon exclusive to "Pocket Monsters Corocoro Ver.", which has never appeared in neither the video games nor in the anime, plans to strike back!!

Artwork theme: "A Rebirth Transcending Time! That One Legendary Pokémon!"

And that Pokémon's name is Mewthree??!!

This is Pippi after it gained some of Mewtwo's DNA, which happened in the chapter "Defeat the Most Formidable Pokémon!!", Mewtwo's first appearance in "Pocket Monsters Corocoro Ver.". Readers at the time probably broke out in laughter when they saw this surreal design. And it was even strong enough to overpower Mewtwo!

People still talk about what a big deal this was, and it has become an unprecedented "legend" in itself! (?)

And now, Mewthree has been reborn by the hand of Anakubo himself!!

Mewthree unfortunately doesn't appear in "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", but Mewtwo obviously plays a substantial role!!

We also have a special comment from Anakubo!!

The fact that I got to draw my 20 year old drawing one more time...
made my hand start to tremble, pi!
-Kosaku Anakubo


Next week we'll present a picture drawn by Manavu Kashimoto, the legendary Corocoro manga artist himself, famous for "Classking Yamazaki" and "Croket!"!!

Look forward to seeing what kind of drawing we'll get!!
