Part of our staff here at MANGA.TOKYO are so in love with R Nomura that whenever we get the new official anime screenshots for the upcoming episodes, you see a swarm of fans creeping over one screen to admire the new images and read the blurb. It seems that many of our readers are also fans of the series, since many of you decided to read more about the live event that is going to take place in Pacifico Yokohama National Convention Hall this weekend.
We are all passengers on the anime hype train. We can’t get enough of new visuals, teaser videos, and cast info on upcoming anime series. In this case, we had all three for the upcoming Spring 2017 anime Roku de Nashi Majutsu Koushi (Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor).
The same applies to one of the most anticipated comedies of Spring 2017, Eromanga Sensei. The peculiar comedy anime follows the story of Masamune Izumi, a high school boy who also works as a light novel (young-adult fiction) author, and has a younger stepsister, Sagiri, who is a hikikomori (a shut-in). Check the article to see the latest PV.
We’ve all been waiting for a second season of Overlord, ever since the compilation movies were announced. The anime was so popular that a second season seemed inevitable, and it seems that we were right.
Can you believe that Godzilla was never adapted into an anime? The most famous monster of them all has countless movies and cameo appearances in popular culture, but they never considered an anime adaptation… until now. The Godzilla anime is going to be released by Netflix!
Masaaki Yuasa’s latest original anime movie Lu Over the Wall released a beautiful new teaser trailer that reveals a bit more about the bittersweet story between Kai and the mermaid Lu.
When an anime is a famous classic that is revered by anime fans all around the world, even Hollywood can’t resist the temptation to adapt it into one of its multi-million blockbusters. The good news is that the Japanese fans, who might be worried that the movie might not live up to the name of GiTS, will have the chance to watch the dub with the original voice actors that lent their voices to the characters of the first GiTS movie.
Sagrada Reset is gathering a lot of attention, probably because of its peculiar setting: in a town called Sakurada In the story half of the people have special abilities. I guess that with so many peculiar people around them, the other half just wish they had super powers.
Natsu looks so cool in half-dragon form. Read the article to know more about this amazing illustration and about the the voice cast for the new characters: Animus, Sonya, and Zash!
