Hello, MANGA.TOKYO otaku readers!
Summer 2017 is finally here. Tomorrow, 1 July 2017, is the official first day of the new season and this week has some amazing debuts. That also means that most Spring 2017 have already broadcast their final episodes. You can check all our reviews here, but we already have three series reviews ready for you:
A few weeks ago, we asked you to tell us your most anticipated anime of the new season. Our summer otaku poll ended today, 30 June and we had more than 1000 responses! We gathered the Top 15 titles in this article:
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, 23-29 June 2017!
Which articles really piqued your interest?
School is a common setting in anime for various reasons. The upcoming anime Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e revealed a new PV and a new visual and you brought it in the 10th place with your views.
The August issue of Comic Cune is full of cute girls and we thought you’d like to read a few of the preview panels. We translated them just for you! Let us know if there is anything else you’d like for us to translate in the comments below!
Summer 2017 anime Kakegurui (Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler) is one of the first that will kickstart this new season. Don’t forget that it is part of MANGA.TOKYO’s list of episodic anime reviews. Make sure to bookmark our review section for a recap of Episode 1.
We are all excited about the live action adaptation of Ajin. The new trailer shows a battle between Nagai and Sato, and we can also clearly see the IBM (Invisible Black Matter)! Check it out.
The character designs from the first of two Haikara-san ga Tooru movies are so beautiful and representative of the Japanese Taisho era (~1920). You have to see these illustrations.
Hunter x Hunter is finally out of hiatus (as another popular manga goes into one) and the new chapter was released a few days ago in Weekly Shonen Jump. Read more about the new chapter and Volume 34!
With the live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul just a month away, expect the hype to intensify. We will get more pictures, more promos, and more character images, like this one of Yo Oizumi as Kureo Mado. What do you think? Does he look like the veteran Ghoul investigator?
It’s common practice to announce the Blu-Ray and DVD extras before the broadcast of the anime to get fans more excited about the TV show. After all, we all know that the disc release is always bigger and better. In the case of Hajimete no Gal, the bonuses are going to get a lot of fans excited!
We are getting a third season of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma! We can’t wait to see what kind of gourmet challenges Soma and his friends are going to tackle this time!
Ok, we know that the 2nd and 1st place are essentially the same news, but we did have two articles because we learned of the scan before the official announcement. That only shows how excited we all are about the new season of Shokugeki no Soma since you brought both articles on the top of the views list!
