There is an inexplicable difference between the fictional world of heroes and the cruel world of our reality. Although the stories of super men and women are nothing but parables of how to live a kind and empathic life, most of us fail to take the message. That line between reality and fantasy is the main theme of the upcoming anime Inuyashiki. One part of the protagonistic duo is Inuyashiki Ichiro, an dying elderly man who is treated like crap by his family. The other half is Shishigami Hiro, a sassy teenager who want to see the world burn. As they are both caught in a strange explosion, they wake with their bodies replaced with robot parts. Of course, they have superpowers. The only problem is that Hiro wants to kill the whole world. Guess who will play the hero.
Just Because! smells mystery drama from miles away. You just have to take a look at the summary: A group of high school students are near their graduation when all of a sudden, a friend they haven’t seen since middle school suddenly transfers back. What is his deal? Why has he returned?

Kino’s Journey is not a new story. We have seen it before in 2003 in an anime with the exact same name, based on a series of light novels. Kino loves motorcycles and traveling, but the old-school round-light bike he is riding is not ordinary: it has a name, Hermes, and it can talk. They go on a fantastic journey that has but one rule: never stay in one place for more than three days.
The anime is going to deal with some deep philosophical issues, as the anime director, Ryotaro Nakamura, has described the series asa ‘radical sense of beauty’.
Diomedéa studio has brought us some really good titles in the past seasons: Girlish Numberin Fall 2016; Fuukain Winter 2017; Aho Girl and Action Heroine Cheer Fruitsin Summer 2017. In Fall 2017, they want to keep that tradition with a comedy that is going to have a lot of sexual innuendo, My Girlfriend is Shobitch.
The protagonist, Haruka Shinozaki, is in love with the most weird girl in the class. Akiho Kousaka, although she accepts his confession, is taking their dates too seriously and suggests activities that are a little too sexual. What is going on here?
After a successful first run in Fall 2016 – Winter 2017, the shogi adventures of Rei and his friends are back for a mushc-anticipated second season. The series will continue exactly where it left off in Episode 22, Rei in a train full of the people who are on the same path as he is: A best friend is there with him, Nikaidou. A mentor, Shimada-san. An arch-nemesis, Goudo. A father, Kouda. And then there are the sideline heroes like the Kawamoto sisters and Hayashida-sensei.
If you haven’t seen the first season, this is a good time to catch up with the shogi drama. You can also read our episodic reviews, starting from Episode 1.
