We have added a few more titles to our anime previews for Summer 2017 and we have published the results of our latest poll in a Readers’ Top 10 Anime, but our latest list has nothing to do with impressions and popularity contest. The messages you send us lately are mostly concerned with ways to watch anime online. In an age where piracy reigns, it’s our duty as fans to support the industry, and that’s why we made a list with all the currently running anime.
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, 21-27 July 2017!
Which articles really piqued your interest?
When it comes to the crowned king of ridiculously long titles, light novels are sitting comfortably on the throne. Sometimes manga also have long titles in an effort to make the content clear. You must understand that the competition in the industry is fierce. One of these manga, My Girlfriend is a Faithful Virgin Bitch, is slightly changing its name to a more anime friendly version and gets ready of its small screen adaptation!
The otaku industry is the heaven of themes. You can find anything from absurd isekai comedies to psychological thrillers. Manga, anime, and video games have an abundance of themes and settings and, most of the times, they have the same catalog. I always wondered why there was not an anime based on the volleyball spin-off of Dead or Alive but now we don’t need one. Harukana Receive, the beach volleyball manga by Nyoijizai will get an anime adaptation!
When an anime has some amazing fans, just like Konosuba does, the production committee can only heed to their pleas for another project. The fantasy gag anime is getting a new anime series. We will be back with news as soon as we get them.
Having a sister complex must be tough when your stepsisters are awfully cute and twins. From the title, I have to assume that they have the same name as well. The manga by Riko Korie will get an anime adaptation, so stay tuned on MANGA.TOKYO for more info.
Many anime fans don’t go the extra mile to learn more about the people creating their favorite titles. I plead guilty, as I am often inclined to search only for those who have written the scenario, and in an anime industry full of adaptations, that leads me back to the original material. Yet, I was amazed by the work done here by illustrator loundraw. He was in charge of the original character design of Tsuki ga Kirei, an original TV anime which aired this spring, so if you like his style, you need to see this trailer.
Sometimes it’s difficult to track the adaptation chain. Light novels turn into manga and then the manga turns into an anime. The first step in that particular chain took Shoto Shinko’s novel Shikkaku Mon no Saikyou Kenja (The Strongest Sage of the Disqualified Crest), which now has a manga adaptation.
Anything is possible when fans are involved. Fictional anime sport Keijo never intended for this to happen, but some fans from Portugal have created the first official team in the world. Just don’t expect the supernatural moves you saw in the anime.
