Most of what came up this week was accompanied by some sort of trailer:
- Remember that speculation that Vanishing Line could be a Garo series? Well, the golden wolf’s out of the bag. I wonder why they didn’t just say so from the beginning?
- The Haunted Swordsman, a samurai puppet project, is getting crowdfunded now. It looks pretty high-quality, and it would be cool to have a western counterpoint to Thunderbolt Fantasy!
- Another Infini-T Force ad:
- Blazing Transfer Student is getting a live-action Netflix original series. If it’s half as good as the anime, it’ll be amazing. Toshio Li (Detroit Metal City) is directing, so we’ll most likely be in good hands.
- I forgot to post about this several weeks back, but The Legend Of The Demon Cat is an upcoming Chinese movie based on a Japanese novel by Baku Yumemakura (Onmyouji). Anyway, it’s got a trailer now.
- Kenji Kamiyama’s Napping Princess started in select US cities this weekend.
- Blade of the Immortal is playing in the US starting November 3rd. Looking forward to it!
- A teaser for Trigger’s upcoming Darling and the FranXX doesn’t show us very much:
A couple items without a trailer:
- Getter Robo has new moe figures. Not Getter Robo girl moe figures, but Getter Robo itself. These appear to be based on an image with many Dynamic characters, so if these sell we may have Mazinger, Devilman, Grendizer, and Jeeg get similar treatment.
- There’s a report that mentioned another live-action Rurouni Kenshin movie. It’s been a while since the last one, but it’d be nice to see the final arc of the manga adapted in some form.
- Finally, we recently found out that Yoshio Tsuchiya passed away back in February. An actor who contributed many roles to the genre, he will be missed.
That’s a wrap for this week, but as always leave a comment if we missed something. Otherwise, check out Kamen Rider Build, since that’s just started, or Symphogear AXZ and Ultraman Geed, which continue to be excellent (or, just watch some old shows).
