This year’s 15th issue of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a television anime adaptation of Yuusuke Murata’s One-Punch Man manga has been green-lit. The cast and staff will be announced within a promotional video at Bandai Visual’s booth at the Anime Japan 2015 event on March 21 and 22. Murata wrote that when he learned about the anime being green-lit, he was so happy that he wanted to immediately post on Twitter, but unfortunately had to hold back and be patient. ONE wrote that he is participating in production meetings for the anime. The series revolves around the titular super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily. Murata’s manga series adapts ONE’s original web manga of the same name. Murata’s manga is currently running on Shueisha’s free Tonari no Young Jump spinoff website. The series passed the 2.2-million mark in November 2013, the 3.4-million mark last May, and the 4.5-million mark in...

The wraparound jacket band on Kei Toru’s third Rokka no Yūsha manga volume is announcing on Friday that a television anime adaptation of Ishio Yamagata’s original Rokka no Yūsha fantasy light novel series has been green-lit. The story centers around six heroes — except seven appear instead. One must be a fake and the heroes’ enemy. When the Majin awoke from the depths of darkness, the deity of fate chose six heroes and bequeathed them with the power to save the world. Adoretto, a boy who proclaims himself the strongest on Earth, was selected among the Rokka no Yūsha (Heroes of the Six Flowers), and he goes to the rendezvous point — but seven have gathered there. The heroes suspect that someone among the seven is the enemy, and the initial suspicion falls on Adoretto. Yamagata launched the novel series with illustrations by Miyagi in 2011, and Shueisha’s Dash X Bunko imprint is publishing the fifth volume on Friday. Yamagata wrote the orignal Tatakau Shisho light novel series that inspired The Book of Bantorra anime, and Toru has also drawn the Akame ga KILL! Zero...

A highly uneventful episode no matter what people say. The pace has slowed down again I think. I wish things would just pick up. I’d say that next week’s episode looks very promising, but I have been disappointed before…
We knew that they were walking into an ambush and we also knew that they were going to save their comrades before they decided. That was pretty much set in stone last week. That is why I cannot understand why it took almost half an episode for the first shot to be fired. I dare say that they tried to fill the episode up a bit.
What also bothered me is that it took another five or six minutes before they actually rushed in and the battle started. At that point the episode was already 75% over. I can only hope that next week’s episode, where Yuu-kun supposedly fights against that vampire noble, will be a lot better than this one and contains a lot less idling around.Read More
A very weird episode to be very honest. I simply expected a lot more. I hate how they are making the main characters seem so damn weak all of a sudden. I won’t lie; it’s becoming a little hard to watch right now. A little disappointing…
So this new king shows up out of nowhere and starts hauling ass. He can create fog and use that gun of his countless times and god only knows what other abilities he has. That’s fine. What bothers me is how he managed to save the Green King, steal the slates, fight off three kings and still make it out of there without as much as a scratch on him. Am I the only one that’s bothered by this?
The Silver King has returned at last and he now seems like the weakest of all. All he ever did was deflect a few bullets. I think the Red King contributed a lot more than anyone else in terms of damage dealt. She, at the very least, tried. Don’t even get me started on the Blue King. He just failed miserably and took it out on one of his clansmen, whom seems to have changed sides again.Read More
This episode pissed me off to no end. It almost feels as though we are back to square one. I thought that we would dive in Yato’s past and learn a bit more about him, but no… We went back in an entirely different way.
Yato has come so far. He’s survived longer than anyone could’ve guessed and he’s even obtained a licensed shrine that allows him to attend godly meetings and whatnot. Things were going so well until that old Regalia of his decided to show her face again. That’s one thing, but now he’s actually back to being that old fearsome god that kills first and asks questions later (or not at all).
We have been following him for two seasons now and there has been some remarkable progress. To see him regress like this is just a complete pain. We know there’s not going to be a plot twist since we all already know what’s going on to a degree. All that’s left is for him to snap out of it, kill that Regalia and take care of that corrupted god.Read More
You’d have to be stupid if you couldn’t see this one coming. I mean, they focusses on it so much last week and now I read some posts by shocked Heavy Object fans. Are you insane or did someone just troll you with inacurrate subtitles?
What it all comes down to; the boys got betrayed by one of their superiors. He, some fat guy with a big rank, thought that it’d be best to get rid of those two boys since they’ve become famous for destroying Objects all on their own. He wanted to make sure that the world went back to the way it was; the country with the most Objects rules the world. Thought of people being capable of taking down Objects without an Object of their own scared the living daylight out of him that he decided to betray his own men. To think that he’d have such a big mouth there at the end…
Anyway, those two perverts did it. They managed to destroy yet another Objects without any help. They got pushed into a corner and once again emerged victorious. The one thing that bothers me a little (but only a little) is how a lot of those mechs look alike. They have the same kind of guns and canons, shapes and colour. There have been exceptions (like this week’s next-gen mech or that huge sea mech) but the rest really looks very similar. I wouldn’t call that a bad thing but it does give the impression that the author may have been a little lazy. Could be that there’s a catch behind it (maybe a lot of nations simply tried to copy a certain Object when it first came out).Read More
I’ll just say it once and for all; this show really loses its magic when Hakua isn’t involved. They made this protagonist and created half a dozen heroines that’ll end up fighting over him and they spend too little time on the greatest one.
I thought that something interesting was about to happen when Karen got put in the spotlight. Kimito complimented the living hell out of Karen and made her wear a very sexy outfit, after which she ended up running away embarrassed and flattered. That gave me false hope once again. I knew that nothing’s ever going to happen.
I have to accept that the magic of Shomin Sample drops whenever Hakua doesn’t get enough screen-time. Aika has pretty much fulfilled her mission (so to speak) and that’s that. I honestly can’t see her a potential girlfriend even though she did get closest to him so far by performing CPR. My money’s still on Hakua or Karen as a last resort. His maid is a no-go (until she actually kissed him).Read More
This was a very good episode. There may be very little that I want to say about it, but that doesn’t change the fact that I really enjoyed watching it. This is how it should be; action, action and a little bit more action to top it off.
Our newest adversary appeared during last week’s episode and he, some fat guy that ran when their old base got attacked, wants his ship back even though he left it there when he ran. His ship survived the attack and now he thinks he can get it back. I don’t see it that way and I think that Orga agrees. He left it behind so they took it for themselves.
Now, they managed to survive the attack by pulling a few daring moves. The mobile suits of both parties got severely damaged before a temporary truce was reached. I say temporary because we all know that it won’t last. Either those kids become the enemy again or that greedy, selfish old men becomes the enemy. I’m kind of hoping for door number one since I wouldn’t mind an extra dose of action.Read More
I still think this show is a masterpiece, but I must admit that I’m starting to get a little confused with all these new characters making their appearance. I might have to watch one or two episodes again in order to get back on track.
The thing that confuses me most is the amount of princess. All these characters keep piling up and it’s really starting to become a harem for Haku to enjoy. The problem with introducing a new character each week is that the protagonist doesn’t make a lot of progress with any of the other characters. It’s been quite some time since we some quite a few promising scenes.
I thought, after Kuon’s ‘mothers’ made their appearance, that we were finally going somewhere. Maybe Kuon was going to open up a little, maybe that other princess was going to admit to herself that she’s interested in Haku or maybe the inn’s owner is going to continue teasing Haku a little bit more because he looks like someone she used to know.
Instead we get another princess that ended up revealing herself for the first time ever. She’s supposedly very old, but instead we get another loli character that cannot be considered a potential girl for Haku’s little harem. I mean, she’s really tiny. In fact, one of her servants actually had to give her a spanking because she kept bothering people (eating their food, trespassing, destroying stuff, you name it) and whatnot. It’s obvious that she’s going to be a handful and I think that she shows quite a bit of promise, but I would really prefer it if they stopped pushing all those ‘princesses’ every week. It’s been like that ever since Haku and Kuon reached the capital…Read More
I fired up this episode and just as soon as I finished there was only one word that came to mind; “duh”. This episode was unneeded. You could’ve skipped this episode and not have missed a single thing. What a shame…
I don’t care if there was very little action. I don’t care about that at all. What I do care about is that they don’t keep pointing out the obvious. I don’t need that vampire noble to tell me that there’s one of them that’s giving the humans all sorts of information. I kind of already knew that a few weeks ago when they made that very clear.
The best part of the episode was near the end where the vampires decided to ‘take care’ of the humans that were protecting the area. A nice amount of drama and action to end an otherwise disappointing episode. Next week’s episode should be quite eventful as the lieutenant and his soldiers are marching towards a big trap with the idea of rescuing their captured comrades. We’ll see…Read More
