How do you make a smartphone puzzle game into an interesting anime? You put a ‘puzzle element’ in it, but not in the way you might have imagined: Each episode of 18if will have a different director!
We finally have the visuals for the main protagonist pair of upcoming hero anime Inuyashiki. Ichiro Inuyashiki and Hiro Shishigami will battle against each other with their new alien powers.
The first volume of the Attack on Titan will have an amazing bonus! I wonder if the industry will go worldwide mainstream enough to bring to the fans all the goodies the Japanese fans get.
Don’t forget that Attack on Titan is part of our episodic anime reviews for Spring 2017!
We also posted 4 new character visuals from the upcoming stage play adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul! The famous manga by Sui Ishida will be turned into a stage play this summer.
BL stories can be so sweet at times. We don’t blame you for being interested in this latest BL manga about Inui, a guy who works part-time dressing up as a tokusatsu hero (think Power Ranger) in shows for children!
Are you a The Qwaser of Stigmata fan? Then, you’d be happy to learn that the creators involved with the breast-power anime are bringing the oppai back through a new title. Kenetsu Sato and Hiroyuki Yoshino are now focusing on the nectar that can turn someone into a great warrior: Breast milk.
All news about the upcoming live stage play adaptation of our favorite ninja team is popular, but you were especially interested in this on-the-spot interview with the cast!
The live stage adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul is not the only TG production that is on its way. An additional cast member has been announced for the live action movie. Do you recognize him? ^^
In first place we find a new manga by Haru Hiwaki. The premise is certainly interesting and we can’t wait to see how Leo, the hottest boy in school, will behave towards his new teacher. Read the article for more info!
