Otakusphere Weekly Episode #32: Vampire Investment Tips

This time around, Sword Art Online gets us talking about the future of warfare, we investigate the possible deeper meaning of Mai’s bunny suit in Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, and I’m getting surprisingly invested in Between Sea and Sky, considering the fact that I still think it’s dumb and it will never stop being dumb in general. In addition, we childishly yell at Kyoto Animation for having the audacity to make a silly archery show instead of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Season 2/ Sound Euphonium Season 3/literally anything else, and speculate about Sophie Twilight’s financial situation.

We didn’t end up doing Listener Questions this week, because uh…I forgot. We’ll do it next time, for sure, so if you have any more questions, let us know in the comments.

Also, Paw Patrol is best show and Skye is absolutely BEST GIRL:

Yes mai waifu is a Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix who flies helicopters, get your own.

Kyoto Animation Reveals Teaser Trailer for Upcoming Archery Anime Tsurune

Boys with bows (and arrows)

So… the third season of Free! coming out this summer isn’t enough for you? You need MOAR MANSERVICE? Kyoto Animation has got you covered with yet another all-boy series coming out this October.

A new teaser trailer went live last night for the upcoming series Tsurune: Kazemai High School’s Archery Club. In the short 42-second trailer, we are introduced to all of the main characters though we don’t really get to see them in action. I also don’t speak fluent Japanese so if they revealed anything about the story, I missed it.

What we do know however is that along with visuals from Kyoto Animation, we will have Takuya Yamamura in the director’s chair and Michiko Yokote handling series composition.

Meanwhile, the primary cast will be:

Minato – Yuto Uemura
Seiya – Aoi Ichikawa
Ryouhei – Ryouta Suzuki
Nanao – Shogo Yano
Kaito – Kaito Ishikawa

I openly admit that I have zero problems with series that focus on budding relationships between young men who must overcome adversity together as a team. It’s a itch that doesn’t get scratched often enough, and I think that Kyoto Animation is doing a great service to the community by expanding everyone’s horizons and showing them something that doesn’t involve cute girls doing cute things.

Will you be checking this series out in October?
