If you like spending on Aniplex titled anime and don’t want to spend money on buying individual volumes, get ready to cough up some dough. Joining along with Sword Art Online Alicization and Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Aniplex announced that the popular anime Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works will be released in a complete Blu-Ray set. Instead of buying volumes 1 and 2 of this anime, just spend approximately $200 on the entire set which includes episodes 0-25, an OVA and a mini-booklet. This anime will be released in July 14th.

In case you missed it, Funimation got a lot of trouble in the recent episode of Kaguya-sama: Love is War season 2 due to a translation the subtitles. Despite Kaguya-sama being an Aniplex title, Funimation has the exclusive rights to stream the second season of the anime. You can watch the first season of this anime anywhere, but season 2 can only be watched on Funimation.
Reported on May 11th from Nicchiban, Funimation got into trouble from fans when one of the recent episodes included an anti-coronavirus conversation with the characters. Many fans pointed fingers at Funimation for tampering the official translations. Here is what the original said:
Original: “何でそんな遠い所にいるんだ？” (“Why are you staying away from me?”)
Original: “もちろんです！50センチ以内の接近も禁止します！” (“Of course! I will forbid being within less than 50 cm each other.”)
In recent spark of news, Aniplex wrote on Twitter acknowledging the translations and will revise it. This error was in episode 5.
What do you think about this news? Do you think the fault was solely on Funimation? Aniplex? or do you think this is just an overreaction from fans? Does this translation bother you?

See you next time. I might need you in a mystery case.
At the Tohtsuki Culinary Academy, the first rule is survival of the fittest, and if you don’t have what it takes to become a master chef, you need to get out of the kitchen before you get burned. With the wheat of first-year students separated from the chaff, cocky former diner cook Yukihira Soma is one of the handful of kitchen whizzes still standing.
As the next round of the Autumn Elections gets underway, can he survive a brutal bento boxing match with the chemistry-obsessed granddaughter of the Academy’s director? And which of the other contenders; Megumi, Ryo, Akira, Hisako, Takumi or sinister dark-horse Subaru; will advance to fight for the gold medal? Get ready for another cut-throat season of eat, beat, and defeat!

As a follow up to the previous news I wrote the other day, in case you missed it, it has been revealed that an Inuyasha sequel anime project was announced.
English company Viz Media wrote in their blog page that this sequel is happening and it will have a returning crew from the previous anime. Inuyasha manga creator Rumiko Takahashi will design the characters and the animation company Studio Sunrise will return. The new sequel will focus on the daughters of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru who are also half-demons. Here is the synopsis for the sequel anime:
In Feudal Japan, Half-Demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated from each other during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa wanders into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into present-day Japan, where she is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota, and his family.
Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras has reopened, allowing Towa to be reunited with Setsuna, who is now a Demon Slayer working for Kohaku. But to Towa’s shock, Setsuna appears to have lost all memories of her older sister.
Joined by Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, the three young women travel between the two eras on an adventure to regain their missing past.
With this confirmation news, are you excited for the return of Inuyasha?
If Bleach can come back with a sequel, so can Inuyasha. It looks like the half-demon dog Inuyasha is back according to some recent news. According to a visual image and translation, an Inuyasha sequel is in the works. Sources say that this project is called “Hanyo no Yashahime” and it will focus on the daughters of Inuyasha and his older brother Sesshomaru. It is also revealed that the mangaka and Inuyasha creator Rumiko Takashi was involved with designing the characters and it appears the anime music composer Kaoru Wada will be back to create music for the project.
I am not sure if it’s going to be an anime series, OVA or movie, but I will try to keep you up to date. Just like Bleach, I will try to stay vigilante and give you more updates.
