We all know that some anime get lost in the seasonal hype cycle, even some really good shows. Hit the jump to see what you might've missed among all the new shows airing every season!
It's been an interesting journey for Re:Creators. When Black Lagoon manga author Rei Hiroe revealed he had developed a new project back, late last year, no one would have guessed that it would have been an original TV anime with a meta-approach to pop culture. With the cast and crew wrapping the series, Hiroe gave them a send-off with a set of character sketches.
Shinjuku Marui Annex, a department store noted for its cutting edge fashions and household goods, often features anime collaboration shops in its event space. This weekend, through September 6th, it's New Game! on the sixth floor venue. That one doesn't have an exclusive visual. What does is what's next. Selesia Upitiria, Meteora Österreich and Hikayu Hoshikawa put on their pajamas for a Re:Creators cake party poster.
Re:Creators continues involve more characters from its fictional worlds. kast week, it was Erina Talker (CV Manaka Iwami - Gamers' Chiaki Hoshinomori). This week, while fans figured it out back in episode 12, Daisuke Ono (Attack on Titan's Erwin, Jojo's Jotaro) now has a character listing as Charon. More after the jump.
Re:creators' laconic mage Meteora Österreich has proved to be something of a fan-favorite. Now that popularity has translated into a hug pillow with Movic. On one side is her more-or-less standard appearance, and on the other is a more relaxed version (sorry, no episode 13 recap take). This is selling for 10,800 yen ahead of a first week of October release.
The Web Sunday digital platform is currently running Re:CREATORS Naked - Rei Hiroe's prose original version of the story, and Re:CREATORS - One More a comedy spin-off about an otaku girl who ends a bystander to the events ofo the anime (with some extra stupidity, such as stalking her favorite bad boy - Yuya Mirokuji). This weekend sees the debut of another manga spin-off. More after the jump.
Nendoroids, Nendoroids and more Nendoroids. As and is frequently is the case, there are lots of the super deformed figures going on sale. There are some fairly typical ones in the latest batch, like Detective Conan. There are also some quite distinctive ones, like Re:Creator's Meteora - complete with her summoned/borrowed(stolen) Type 01 LMAT, Haikyu!!'s Lev with special whip arm and the heroine of illustration series Tawawa on Monday - who can rest a smartphone on her soft bust.
Anime magazine Newtype's character rankings can be fun, with their inclusions of divisive character from Gundam or Code Geass, or from Five Star Stories (a manga that the magazine runs) and the like. In terms of taking them seriously... well, they're fun. Still, Rei Hiroe, creator of Re:Creators (and Black Lagoon) seemed to react with genuine delight that the series' Selesia Uptiria topped the female rankings.
