I’m not going to do it. You can’t make me and if you think that looking at me like that is going to change my mind, you’ve got another thing coming.
Fine. PLUS ULTRA!
That’s right, a new trailer for the upcoming My Hero Academia: Two Heroes movie hit the internet yesterday and it is a glorious 92 seconds of everything we love about this show.
The trailer is more than just a 92-second sizzle reel though, as it also reveals a new cast member: Rikiya Koyama playing the villain, Wolfram. If you’re listening not-so-closely, you’ll also hear the movie’s theme song Long Hope Philia by Masaki Suda kick in at about the minute mark.
Is your appetite sufficiently whetted? Good, because there isn’t much time left before this movie premieres around the world. It gets its world premiere at Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 5th before hitting the big screen in Japan on August 3rd.
Funimation holds the license to this series and describes this movie as:
The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.
Big news out of Japan this morning as we have a brand new TV anime adaptation to tell you about!
According to the third compiled volume of the manga series, An Angel Flew Down to Me! (Japanese title: Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!), a TV anime adaptation has been green-lit at studio Doga Kobo (Monthly Girls Nozaki-Kun, Gabriel Dropout).
Along with the production studio, we also have some key members of the staff already!
Director – Daisuke Hiramaki Character Designs – Hiromi Nakagawa Series Composition – Yuka Yamada
The series’ main character is a shy, otaku, female college student named Miyako who has a younger sister in elementary school. When this younger sister brings a friend home to visit, Miyako falls in love instantly. Yeah, there’s a reason why I waited a bit before I told you about the story.
The series was originally launched in 2016 in the magazine Comics Yurihime with story and art by Nanatsu Mukunoki and, as mentioned, has three compiled volumes to date.
I’m not going to lie to you, that story synopsis isn’t filling me with vast amounts of hope for this one. I could always be surprised but until I see a promotional video that shows me otherwise, I have to chuck this one in the ‘possibly creepy’ bin.
Yep, it’s another isekai series filled with demons and magic and stuff.
Earlier today a brand new promotional video and key visual was revealed for the series set to premiere on July 5th, How NOT to Summon a Demon. In the video (which lasts for almost two and a half minutes), we are given a pretty good idea of what to expect from this one. I’m not going to comment specifically about what I think of this one (that’s what Twitter is for) but I’ll let you see and judge for yourself.
At the very least, we at least get to sample the opening and ending theme songs.
J-Novel Club is releasing the light novel series in English via their website and describes the story as:
In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to another world – but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They had performed an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon… but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability “Magic Reflection” activated! Instead, it was the girls who had become enslaved! Though Takuma may have been the strongest Sorcerer there was, he had no idea how to talk with other people. That’s when he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game!
“Amazing? But of course… I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!”
So begins a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!
The cast for this series includes (character names first):
Hey, anime fans! My name is L.B. and I’ve been tasked with filling you in on just some of the hottest anime news to hit the wires each and every day.
Anime Expo is proving to be THE place to be this summer. It’s not enough that they are hosting the world premiere of Overlord Season 3 dub but earlier today it was announced on their official website that they are also hosting the world premiere of Attack on Titan Season 3 ahead of its July 22nd air date! Yes, you may commence your excited squees now (provided that you actually plan on attending the event, to begin with). Not only that but both Bryce Papenbrook and Yuki Kaji will be in attendance for the screening.
The screening will take place on Sunday, July 8th at 11:30 AM in Hall B of the LA Convention Center.
Not planning on attending Anime Expo this summer? That’s alright because Funimation has already announced that they will be doing a nationwide theatrical screening of the season 2 recap movie AND showing the first episode of the third season.
For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last few years, Attack on Titan is an intense, dramatic thrill ride filled with danger, blood, and violence around every single corner. The first volume of the manga hit store shelves in Japan way back in 2010 before being released in English by Kodansha in 2012.
A century ago, the grotesque giants known as Titans appeared and consumed all but a few thousand humans. The survivors took refuge behind giant walls. Today, the threat of the Titans is a distant memory, and a boy named Eren yearns to explore the world beyond Wall Maria. But what began as a childish dream will become an all-too-real nightmare when the Titans return and humanity is once again on the brink of extinction.
