Grancrest Senki

An Action, Fantasy brought to life by A-1 Studios.

On a continent ruled by chaos, the Lords have the power of a holy seal that can calm the chaos and protect the people. However, before anyone realizes it, the rulers cast aside their creed of purifying the chaos, and instead start to fight each other for each other’s holy seals to gain dominion over one another. Shiruuka, an isolated mage who scorns the Lords for abandoning their creed, and a wandering knight named Theo, who is on a journey to train to one day liberate his hometown, make an everlasting oath to work together to reform this continent dominated by wars and chaos.

Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu

Finally, we are getting the second season of this action-packed, supernatural, fantasy, shounen anime! Big thanks to A-1 Studios for this.

Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion

OLM is behind this anime that is considered to fall under the Action, Kids, Mecha and Sci-Fi genres.

ShoPro‘s new transforming train toy line comes with animated promotional videos on the official YouTube page. Featuring shinkansen which transform into Shinkalions who fight a mysterious shakouki-doguu monster.

Time Bokan: Gyakushuu no San-Okunin

The second season is brought to us by  Tatsunoko Production and is an adventure, comedy and mecha genre based anime.

Allow me to explain! Bimajo, Tsubuyakky, and Suzukky work at the History Paradise Company, which publishes text books in the 24th century, and they’re also the evil trio, Akudarma, that gets in the way of JKK’s investigation of history! After their last battle in history with JKK officers Tokio and Calen, they were on a long yet short time off (unpaid, of course), when they finally received a new assignment from their mysterious boss, Akudarma. The assignment… was to collect the mystical Dynamonds from famous people throughout history. Another ridiculous order from the boss, but alas, that is the life of an office worker. Akudarma starts hopping through time, as they’re ordered, and try to get the Dynamonds from the various famous historical figures. The evil trio’s revenge mission through time was about to start once again!! Also, please make sure not to forget about the protagonists (?) Tokio and Calen!

Sanrio Danshi

Studio Pierrot brought to life this original 12 episode school-based anime.

The project’s premise follows Kouta Hasegawa, a high school boy that loves the yellow Pom Pom Purin dog. By mere coincidence, he ends up attending the same school as Yuu Mizuno, a boy who likes the bunny My Melody. Yuu tells Kouta that there’s nothing to be ashamed of for liking Sanrio’s cute characters. Together, Kouta, Yuu, Shunsuke Yoshino, Ryou Nishimiya, and Seiichirou Minamoto learn to accept their love of the characters instead of feeling embarrassed.


The animation studio, Passione, brought this Drama, Romance, School, Shoujo Ai anime to life from its original manga counterpart.

Fashionable Yuzu imagined the first day at her new school she transferred to after her mother’s remarriage a bit differently; she didn’t know it’d be an ultra-strict and conservative girls’ school. So instead of a sweet high-school romance, she butts heads with the stern student council president Mei—who turns out to be her new stepsister. And she has to learn that hate and attraction are often not that far apart.
