Ensemble Stars!, ARIFURETA, DanMachi II to air on Aniplus Asia this July

I’s already the start of the Summer season in Japan (and it’s supposed to be the start of the rainy season in the Philippines), but that does not stop the release of new anime series — especially on the side of Aniplus Asia, which told keepsakes. that they will simulcast three new titles.

Ensemble Stars!

Let it resound, our ensemble

In Yumenosaki Private Academy, Hokuto Hidaka, Subaru Akehoshi, Makoto Yuki and Mao Isara are members of the idol unit Trickstar. Striving to become top idols, the four work their hardest to compete in the “Dream Fes” and seek a revolution by going against the academy’s dominating authority — the student council. (Synopsis taken from Aniplus microsite)

The mobile game from Happy Elements now has its own anime series, but wait a sec — Isn’t this the one featured in Last Period? (I will link a Reddit thread for the mentioned episode — and of course, this has spoilers.)

From what I have been told (this comes from the time when I was having dinner at SM Megamall with the guys who did the Cardcaptor Sakura photoshoot), this game title discuss things that other titles of the same genre can’t (trigger warning).

I am sensing that there will be loads of threads about Ensemble Stars on fora and on Twitter already. Just we wait.

Premiere: July 7, every Sunday at 11:00pm with replays every Monday at 6:00pm

ARIFURETA: from commonplace to world’s strongest

He will go beyond the “strongest”

One day, Hajime Nagumo is summoned to another world with his classmates. Being the weakest amongst his classmates, he is bullied and they eventually betray him, pushing him into an abyss.

Within the abyss, Hajime encounters a vampire named Yue and the two begin their journey to become the “strongest”…

I watched the PV, and I am amazed at the cast lineup they have: Yuuki Kuwahara, Minami Takahashi (both worked in Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, previously aired on the said channel), Ai Kakuma, Minoru Shiraishi, Saori Oonishi, Yoko Hikasa, so on and so forth. The seiyuu guy in me says “you guys got to watch this!”

Premiere: July 9, every Monday at 24:00 (you got to be awake by exactly Tuesday midnight to watch this) with replays every Tuesday at 6:00pm.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? II

The Familia Myth unfolds once again

“Sequel of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?.

Hestia Familia remains the smallest in Orario with only its head and sole member — Goddess Hestia and adventurer Bell Cranel. After ranking up at an unprecedented rate, Bell gained the overwhelming attention of the world.

The “Familia Myth” woven by the boy and the goddess will unfold once again.”

After the movie screening at SM Megamall last May, DanMachi is back with a new season and new additions to the cast, including Haruka Chisuga.

Man, when was the last time I heard her name? Angels of Death, which was also aired on Aniplus Asia before. I remember her the most when she sang the second ending to The Asterisk War, “Ai no Uta,” composed by none other than Rasmus Faber himself. — Ok, ok, I am straying myself too far. We need our dose of Hestia, that’s for sure.

Premiere: July 13, every Saturday at 1:00 am with replays every Saturday at 8:00pm.
