Kamen Rider W is not my first season of Kamen Rider that I experienced in full as it released, but it was the one that hooked me. With it’s colorful cast, detective noire inspired themes, excellent soundtrack, and a story that hits many emotional and storytelling highs and lows, I couldn’t be more excited to talk about Fuuto PI, the anime adaption of the manga of the same name that continues the story.
A new trailer and key visual for season two of popular anime Rising of the Shield Hero has been released! An exciting Isekai anime, Shield Hero is the story of a university student named Naofumi Iwatani, who’s ordinary life is flipped on it’s head when he’s summoned to the kingdom of Melromarc, in a world not far from a video game. He is destined to defend the world as the legendary Shield Hero, the weakest of a four hero group, but when he is immediately belittled and is subject to a betrayal, will he even bother trying?
Mob Psycho 100 has been confirmed by the show’s official Twitter account to be returning for it’s third season. Based on the web manga by ONE and produced by studio Bones (My Hero Academia), the popular anime’s return has been met with a brand new trailer and visual by character designer Yoshimichi Kameda.
Oizumi Yo (Tokyo Ghoul) stars along with Arimura Kasumi (Sekigahara) and Nagasawa Masami (Gintama, Gintama 2). FYI, it’s a SUB-ONLY deal, so if you’re like me and don’t mind the original Japanese audio, head over to Funimation and pre-order your copy ahead of its July 24 release.

Times are good for fans within a specific film niche, especially when those in power can heed to the call of its base – a case none too far from that of the ilk in line for Higuchi Shinji‘s live-action Attack On Titan tête-à-tête between August and September through Toho Company based on the popular manga and anime. For this, we can lend three cheers to FUNimation for representing the Americas for the releases of both film’s ahead of the company’s July-slated world premiere screening of the film in Los Angeles at the Egyptian Theater in addition to events at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with Higuchi in attendance.
Times are good, indeed. Details are below and the latest trailer for the film’s release in Japan is here!
