Hello gamers, I got some interesting news I just found out this weekend. The popular demon-slaying, Shonen anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will be getting some video game titles for the PS4 and mobile devices. According to Crunchyroll, this news broke out in the recent Japanese issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealing that the series is the Anime of the Year Winner.
The PS4 game will be called Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Kepputan and this game will be developed by CyberConnect2 (well-known for creating the games Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series.)
The mobile game is called Kimetsu no Yaiba: Keppu Kengeki Royale and it will be for Japanese Androids and iOS devices. This game will be played as a “battle royale” where players will be placed in one, big arena and fight each other for last man standing. This game will be released later this year. This game will also be developed by Soleil Game Studios (same company who is currently working on Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time).
So far, there is no news for the game to be released outside of Japan. These games will be worked on by the same company which is Aniplex and the animation team Ufotable and Shueisha.

This DLC will give players the ability to play as Super Saiyan GOd Goku and Vegeta. Characters Beerus and Whis will be added to the game along with new moves and music.

Despite the news of Bleach returning and the one-shot Burn the Witch getting an OVA, there is some good and bad news in the manga world. According to Crunchyroll, the Shonen series The Seven Deadly Sins manga is going to be concluding next week in Japan’s next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. The manga was created by Nakaba Suzuki and first appeared in October 2012. The final chapter will be released in issue 17 in Japan’s newsstands on March 25th.

According to scan in recent Weekly Shonen Jump, the series Samurai 8 is in the lowest rank in the issue and it is been announced that the series will be ending in issue 17 of the magazine. The series will have a total of 48 chapters.
Great news Bleach fans, I hope you guys are still fans of Tite Kubo’s amazing manga series Bleach. Today I woke up with some amazing news regarding this Shonen series. Put down your My Hero Academia show or put away your Demon Slayer manga because one of the big three is coming back.
It’s been years since the anime has ended, but it ended with a cliffhanger and we never got to see an animated version of the last arc, Thousand-Year Blood War. The anime ended in 2012, but the manga ended in 2016. Now, according to Twitter anime news A.I.R. (Anime Intelligence Research), they found a recent issue of Japanese Shonen Jump magazine with a transcript regarding Bleach. While translating it is been announced that long awaited finale of Bleach will finally get the anime adaptation treatment. To make things even more exciting, the Bleach spin-off one-shot manga Burn the Witch will also get an OVA anime adaption. Originally, this news was going to be announced on March 23rd at AnimeJapan2020 event, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the event has been cancelled and thr announcement will be made on March 20th, 8:45 PM.

Even though My Hero Academia is considered one of the most popular series in the anime and manga community, the fandom can make the community a dangerous place. In case you missed what has happened last week, Bounding Into Comics has been writing some disturbing news in regards to the manga author and the fandom. (Minor spoilers ahead!)
Reported last week, My Hero Academia released chapter 259 and revealed a scientist named Maruta Shiga. This character is a scientist that created the Nomu monsters, the All for One quirk and experimenting on Tomura Shigaraki. This character’s name has sparked an outrage from the My Hero Academia fandom due. According to Bounding Into Comics, fans believe that Maruta is a reference to a World War II war crime in which a Japanese military unit would test biological experiments on political prisoners, prisoners of war and other human victims. This experiment group was called Unit 731 facility and they would treat humans as less. In results, they were sometimes called Maruta since they were treated as falling down trees with no human value.
Fans from China and Korea believed Kohei Horikoshi made a reference to a horrific WWII war crime and the fans has expressed great anger to the point of asking the creator apologize. Horikoshi responded to the hate and anger and wrote an apology and he and the team told fans that they will change the villain’s name.
However, despite Horikoshi trying to amend his actions, the fans are still showing anger towards him. The fans believe his apology wasn’t enough and they are willing to throw away their entire collection of My Hero Academia manga. To add more hate to the flames, fans have also started to hate the My Hero Academia characters because of the birthdays. Some of these characters share the same birthday as Germany Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and Imperial Japanese officer Kenji Doihara. The fans are beyond furious.

I got some good news and bad news for Fairy Tail fans, so I am going to tell you the bad news first. According to a tweet by Koei Tecmo, the upcoming RPG video game Fairy Tail will be delayed.
According to the game producer, Keisuke Kikuchi states that the reason why this game is delayed because he and the rest of the team wants to polish the game and give fans the highest quality of gaming such as enhancing the game’s engine and fight system. Originally, the game was going to be released on March of this year. Now, depending where you live, Fairy Tail will be released for Europe and Japan on June 25th and North America will get this game on June 26th for PS4 and Switch. Are you planning to get this game?
