This Week in Anime: My Hero Academia, Overlord, and More…

Welcome, weebs and authors alike, to The Aniwriter.

I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things and get back on a consistent schedule, but that has been a bit difficult, mostly due to my own laziness. However, even though this is coming out a little late again, I do plan on getting back to giving you your weekly dose of anime news on Thursday once again. Apologies again for the inconsistency, and I hope you all will continue reading. Now, without further ado, here we go.

New Releases

Here are some of the new anime that will be coming out in the future.

“Karakuri Circus” Gets Anime This Fall

From the mangaka of Ushio to Tora, Karakuri circus will be taking center stage this Fall season. It was announced this week that Kazuhiro Fujita’s second work after Ushio to Tora will be getting an anime adaptation. The show will reportedly have 36 episodes and will be animated by Studio VOLN, who also produced the anime version of Ushio to Tora.

The story follows a young boy who wants to be a puppeteer. However, is life gets crazy after strange people start targeting him. He eventually inherits 18 Billion Yen from his dad and then runs into some people who agree to protect him.

Kyoto Animation Announces “20th Century Electricity Catalog” Anime

In a tweet from their Esma Bunko Editorial Department, Kyo-Ani announced their newest anime project: “20th Century Electricity Catalog.” The show will be a bit of new territory for the studio, as it will be their first ever historical fiction series. The story will be based on the novel by Hiro Yuki, who won an honorable mention at the company’s Kyoto Animation Awards.

The story is set during 1907 in Fushima, where Inako and her father, a famous brewer, live a very traditional life. One day, while visiting a shine, Inako meets Kihachi, a boy who is the polar opposite of traditional. When it comes time for Inako to get married, all she can think about is Kihachi, and just before her arranged marriage, Kihachi comes to rescue Inako and take her away.

“Overlord” Gets New RPG Game

Overlord RPG

In a new release using the RPG Maker software, “Overlord” now has a new game out. The game focuses Ainz and Nabe and their quest to get to Adamantine class adventurers. The game is currently available on Windows, MAC, and online browsers, and, as of writing this article, has two playable parts with more available in the future. The RPG Maker software has also been used to make other games such as Angels of Death, which has anime adaptation that is currently airing in the Summer 2018 season.

Article Shoutouts

Some weekly shoutouts for cool articles and awesome blogger friends.

My Hero Academia and Western Comics

Jennifer Hackett, a staff writer for Crunchyroll, wrote about the difference between My Hero Academia and western superhero comics. In her piece, she explains how fundamentally different the view on identity is between the west and MHA, and how that affects the stories. A fascinating read, to be sure. Check it out.

Butterfly Soup?

I’ve always loved reading articles from The Afictionado, largely because, as someone who is not in anyway apart of the LGBTQ community, her articles focusing on pop culture and LGBTQ representation are always insightful. Her review of the visual novel Butterfly soup is no different. For only being four hours long, she manages to go very in-depth about the game without giving away much in plot. Even if you’re not interested in the game, I would highly recommend reading her thoughts.

March Comes in Like a Lion and Mentors

Lastly, I had to share an OWLS post from a fellow member and unofficial member of the March Comes in Like a Lion Fanclub, Karandi. Karandi’s piece on the various mentor-like figures in March Comes in Like a Lion is very insightful, and I would highly recommend checking it out.

This Week in Anime: Konosuba, Golden Kamuy, and More…

Sorry, this is coming out a day late, I was feeling a bit distracted and not really in a mood to write. Some painful memories recently got stirred up again and it put me in a really weird place, but now I am ok again. Anyway, on to this week’s news

On top of a few promotional images, Kadokawa has now also officially released a trailer for the widely popular Overlord series.

The trailer highlights some of the upcoming plot points of the new season, as well as displaying some of the grittiness the show is well known for. The show’s third season will be produced by Madhouse, and Satoshi Hino will be returning to voice the show’s main character.
