91 Days is a project by animation studio Shuka (Durarara!!x2, Natsume Yuujinchou Go) and produced by Shochiku (Zero no Tsukaima, Noragami, Sengoku Basara). The series will begin on 8th July 2016 with airings on TBS, MBS, and CBC. BS-TBS will show episode one on 9th July.
Every fan of sports anime should note 15 July 2016 as a very important date, as this is when Battery anime is airing. Produced by Fuji TV and based on the bestselling light novels by Atsuko Asano, the series focuses on one of Japan’s favourite sports – baseball – and promises a lot of Slice of Life drama.
It remains to be seen whether Battery will become the new Kuroko no Basket, but there surely is a niche for baseball in sports anime, so why not give it a go?
Berserk is back, and unlike the Ougon Jidai-hen movies, this time we get new material! The upcoming Berserk 2016 anime will let us take a look at the next part of Kentaro Miura’s original manga. More precisely – the Black Swordsman arc which revolves around Guts and his new companion Puck, the elf.
The new anime will begin on 8th July 2016 with an early showing of episode one on the pay-per-view Japanese channel WOWOW on 1st July.
Hirune Hime (ひるね姫) is the new project by director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 009 Re:Cyborg, Higashi no Eden). The story will follow Kokone Morikawa and how her life changes once she meets with the robot named Hearts. See the official trailer below.
The K: Do You Know K? event which was organised earlier today revealed a new anime project in the franchise. The title is K: Seven Stories and it will almost 100% focus on the seven coloured kings and most probably on their very roles.
Humans, youkai, godlike existences, white cats, organisms contained in liquids within tanks, armours, CGI, exceptional fighting scenes, katana, Yakuza, motorbikes, guns, chains, Tokyo, love, cute snail-like beings, and so much more – this is the world of Karas.
The show is a six-episode OVA which was released between 25th March 2005 and 26th October 2007. Learn more about Karas (and why I think you should definitely give it a chance if you like any of the above) below.
A famous trio of male seiyuu has joined the cast for the DAYS anime – the upcoming school sport anime series. The show will begin in July on MBS, TOKYO MX, and BS11 among other channels. Trailer is available below.
A boy who reads yaoi? Not many of these around here, but there is one very famous one in Japan and he’s the comedy manga by Atami Michinoku. The Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu anime will be handled by studio EMT² (Kuma Miko) and produced by DAX Production (sound) and Dream Creation (overall).
