Spy x Family was one of our favorite new anime of last year, and we’re thrilled to find out that not only is Season 2 coming VERY soon, we’ll be getting it in a little over a week’s time. Crunchyroll confirmed episodes will resume premiering Saturday, October 7.
Crunchyroll has released their rather hefty list of anime premieres for the fall — which is actually not the entire fall. Over 25 titles are listed here and they’ll all appear within a month’s time, with premiere dates ranging from tomorrow to late October.
Two years ago Netflix announced they were producing more anime shows based around video games, after the success of their Castlevania cartoon. They signed deals with Capcom and Square Enix (at the time) to produce anime for Devil May Cry and Tomb Raider respectively. Today we got our first look at what both those shows will look like.
This December, the Studio Ghibli film The Boy And The Heron will open in US theaters….a movie director Hayao Miyazaki promised would be his last. To the surprise of no one, he has already gone back on that promise. However, he is not so naive to believe he’ll be around forever, and thus he has announced Studio Ghibli has been sold.
Since Netflix has had so much success with turning the Castlevania series into an anime, it’s only natural they would start looking toward other Japanese video games to animate…and coming soon is one such project, based on Capcom’s Onimusha series.
Crunchyroll has a lot planned for NYCC next month, but perhaps nothing larger than this: they’ve announced the screening of an all-new, never before seen episode from My Hero Academia Season 6. NYCC attendees will be the first to see it…no one in Japan has yet.
Crunchyroll announced its slate of releases for the holiday season today, and headlining them is the disc release of My Hero Academia’s latest half-season.
Before we begin, everyone, a bit of an apology. For months I’ve been snarking about the impending existence of a live-action One Piece show, insisting such a thing could never work. Then the first season came out two weeks ago, I watched it, and…..I liked it?
Ten years ago, Toei released Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods in theaters around the world. Picking up where Dragon Ball Z left off, it introduced a new threat after Majin Buu and forced Goku to tap into power levels he’d never achieved before. Now, on the occasion of its tenth anniversary, Crunchyroll and Fathom Events are re-screening the film over two nights next month.
What attractions will there be at New York Comic-Con this October? Will the strike finally be over by that point? HAHAHA, unlikely. What isn’t currently experiencing stalled contract negotiations is the anime industry, so you can at least count on Crunchyroll. The distributor revealed today their full list of panels they have scheduled for NYCC.
Conceivably, Netflix’s Castlevania anime could go on for a long time, given how many games there are in the series, and the fact they got four seasons out of just ONE game. But they’re about to take new inspiration from a different installment, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, which introduced vampire killer Richter Belmont. That game and its protagonist will serve as inspiration for the latest series, Castlevania: Nocturne.
Crunchyroll has announced the English dub version of Attack on Titan Final Season THE FINAL CHAPTERS Special 1, the long-winded title of the first of two specials meant to wrap up the Attack On Titan anime as a whole. The dub is set to make its debut this Sunday, on both the Crunchyroll streaming app and Adult Swim’s Toonami block.
