Hello! Yuki here!
I live in Japan and I’m a Japanese who loves another world related anime. I have high expectations for “orange” and “Tales” this season! (Of course, I’ll watch “Re : ZERO” as well)
I would like to provide you with anime related big news that became a topic last week in Japan and that aroused my interest!
MANGA.TOKYO gets invited to previews and such so I would also like to give reports on these items if there is any.
These days, we have been visiting production companies for interviews so if you have companies for us to visit, then give us a request.
We will try our best to get an appointment! lol

Sword Art Online The Movie -Ordinal Scale-, Released In The World!
I would like to start with this news among all!
A long awaited “Sword Art Online (SAO), The Movie” has been decided to be broadcasted all across the world!
Since the announcement was made all over the world, it should have made all SAO fans excited including those who live overseas.
The key visual and preview have been released at the same time so check them out as well!
The preview movie has a very good quality that will undoubtedly meet SAO fans’ expectations so you definitely have to see it!
By the way, MANGA TOKYO receives press releases from various companies but personally, just finding the word “Sword Art Online” on the title gets me excited.
TV Anime Series “Attack On Titan” Season 2 Will Be Aired In Spring of 2017!
And the long-loved anime series “Attack On Titan” season 2 has been decided to be broadcasted in spring of 2017!
This is big news along with the SAO related news mentioned above.
“Attack On Titan” is full of topics such as its live-action adaptation but this announcement on season2 especially got fans excited.
According to the Twitter of Kensuke Tateishi, the producer of “Attack On Titan”, the season 2 has been decided to be broadcasted in spring giving it enough time to maintain its high quality.
I can’t wait to watch this high-quality “Attack On Titan” season 2!

Spring of 2017 is full of fun events, I wonder if it comes safely. lol
Original Anime Series “Shuumatsu no Izetta” Will Be Aired Starting From October!
“Shuumatsu no Izetta” has been produced as an original animation and the information on its broadcast in October and its 2nd promotional video have been released.
The 1st promotional video is still fresh in my memory but in the 2nd promotional video, the scene in which a red-haired girl is flying on a large rifle appears.
It made middle-aged men excited with scenes of war in the 1940s, heavy tanks, rifles and a mysterious girl.
On Twitter, many fans thought that the red-haired girl is Izetta but in the press release, she was just described as a girl so personally, I’m expected that there might be some twists to it.
In October, there are many sequels of popular anime series such as Haikyuu and Euphoria so I have high expectations for “Shuumatsu no Izetta”, an original animation!
The Evolution in Anime Characters’ Eyes
Here is an eccentric tweet that became a topic in Japan.

This is familiar for middle-aged men, isn’t this?
There is a comment that stated the one on the left edge is like a slayer, and I agree.
Preferred animations differ from generation to generation but which eyes do you like the best?
I guess I like the ones on the left side. They give me a positive impression.
As you go further on the right, they seem to become unemotional.
Does this mean that the expressions using parts beside the eyes have improved?
Regarding the characters’ eyes that recently got my attention are of “Kizunaiver” and they are beautiful with strong brightness in the eyes.
They are making worried expressions by wavering that brightness. This made me think that the anime really is a combination of fine techniques.
It might be interesting to focus on the characters’ eyes when watching anime.
“HUNTER x HUNTER” of Weekly Shonen Jump Will Be Taking Long Vacation Starting From Next Issue
— ライブドアニュース (@livedoornews) July 4, 2016
How disappointing! It restarted its serialization after its one and half year break but it will go into another long vacation after just 10 episodes. The period of the break is still unknown.
I guess all of you thought “again…” when you heard about this news.
For me who is collecting single volumes since 1998, the only request would be that “it will end before I die”. lol
It’s already been 18 years.
Just like Yu Yu Hakusho, I would like Togashi to keep producing fantastic stories.
The broadcasts of summer anime series have started with the beginning of July.
With the new anime series such as “Orange” and “Tales” and sequels of popular anime series that include “Shokugeki no Soma” and “The Heroic Legend of Arslan”, I was pretty busy during last weekends…
Have you watched them all?
I’m satisfied since I got to enjoy Alice Nakiri to my heart’s content. lol
“Orange” seems to be a good series just as expected so I’m looking forward to see how it evolves.
Otaku News this time consisted mostly of broadcast information but I will be using more on the topics that are talked about in Japan from next time.
I will provide comments on any requests you may have, so send me a message.
Ok then, enjoy a good start of summer anime series!
