Hello, MANGA.TOKYO otaku readers!
Do you remember an article we posted on MANGA.TOKYO a few weeks ago about the Fairy Tail 200-page storybook? We actually went to the cinema to get it just for you! Read our giveaway article for a chance to win the rare book!
We have also launched our first private forum server on Mastodon, the open source social media platform. We have upgraded our article pages so that the comment section has both options available: You can now comment using either your Facebook profile or your MANGA.TOKYO forum account!

But as always, we have another anime news recap for you. Here are the anime and otaku news that had the most page views this last week, 12-18 May 2017!
Which articles really piqued your interest?
MANGA.TOKYO’s readers from Southeast Asia were delighted to hear that the second season of the live-action series of Yowamushi Pedal will simulcast in Indonesia, Myanmar, Singapore, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, and Mongolia! Read the article for more info.
NicoNico uploaded a special webpage for currently airing anime Eromanga Sensei! What could it mean?
Don’t forget that Eromanga Sensei is part of our episodic reviews for the Spring 2017 season!
Original anime are always good news. Studio Gokumi will team up with Kodai Kakimoto for Toji no Miko. The project has revealed its first teaser visual!
Who can resist a food-porn anime? This new anime adaptation can be described as a mix between a gourmet show and a fantasy world, and will feature a restaurant with a door to a another world. I can’t wait to see the menu.
The Summer 2017 anime Hajimete no Gal is also one of the highlights of the upcoming season. Adapted from a very popular manga, fans are expecting Jun’ichi to be the same lovable character as the one they met in the comic.
Another original anime joins the Summer 2017 line up, Kaito x Ansa! MANGA.TOKYO readers were very curious to learn the artist of the OP theme!
It’s common for Japanese anime screenings to attract viewers with exclusive bonus items! No Game No Life Zero will come to Japanese cinemas on 15 July 2017 and will give a reversible B2 poster with a visual of the anime and original illustration on either side. Check the article for the illustrations!
Hiro Mashima is ending his popular series Fairy Tail. We are sure that he is going to focus on giving the series, and the fans, the series’ closure they deserve. He has also promised that his next project will be published right after! I think this the perfect time to apply for that 200-page storybook we are giving away.
We are halfway in the Spring 2017 cour. Don’t forget to check our latest episodic anime reviews, and if you are still deciding on what to watch this season, read our impressions for (nearly) all first episodes of this season!
