Howdy partners! If you like watching anime and you want to experience a story in rich animation and high definition surround sound, I got some exciting news to share. I hope these anime in Blu-Ray is better than Funimation’s Dragon Ball Super Broly version. Accounced by Viz, the classic action-adventure romance story Inuyasha is coming back in a Blu-Ray set. The first Blu-Ray set will have 27 episodes (1-27). If you haven’t started your collection yet or want to get the Blu-Ray counterpart, you can buy your copy in this year fall.

Even though this one anime gets criticism, it is still loved by fans. Aniplex of America announced that they are planning to sell Sword Art Online II in a complete Blu-Ray set. You can pre-order this copy at Rightstuf for about $160. The anime covers all three story arcs from the light novel such as Phantom Bullet, Calibur, and Mother’s Rosario. It’s unknown if Aniplex is planning to sell the regular DVD collection like the first set. The bonus content is unspecified but this set is scheduled for release on September 24, 2019.

Masashi Kishimoto new manga is here!

Image result for samurai 8

It has been a while since the original Naruto manga has ended. Currently running, we have the Boruto manga which is being supervised by the original creator. However, if you want more Naruto-esque series, I got good news! If you have a Shonen Jump account, Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto has just revealed and released the manga of his next work Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru. The manga story was created by Masashi Kishimoto and the art is being done by Akira Okubo. According to the Wiki, he is one of the seventh assistance in Kishimoto’s job and he helped do the Naruto manga in volume 16. If you’re wondering, Mikio Ikemoto is also one of Kishimoto’s assistance but he is also in charge of the manga Boruto: Naruto Next Generation.

Shonen Jump describes the series:

Samurai 8: Hachimaruden is a sc-fi manga that follows a weak boy named Hachimaru, who can’t survive without a life-support system and has never left his house. While dreaming about becoming a “Samurai” that has a machine body and power beyond human, he has spent his days only by playing online games. The story starts moving when a cat, calls himself a “Samurai,” appears in front of him.

Here is what Masashi Kishimoto said when talking to Viz:

Masashi Kishimoto comments:

Q. “If you give an abbreviated name or nickname for Samurai 8: Hachimaruden…?”

 

Kishimoto: “I want some part of the word ‘Samurai’ to be included. I know it is a bit difficult title to be

shortened. Let’s see…, well, please call it ‘SamHachi!’ I think it is just right. However, it is only my hope.

Please use any abbreviated name that is easy for you to call (laugh).”

 

Q: “Message to the readers.”

 

Kishimoto: “As announced at the Jump Festa at the end of last year, I have been struggling to exceed my

previous work Naruto!! (laugh). Because I had taken hiatus from a weekly serialization work, my sense is

now as same as that of amateur artists. However, the pressure from around is so strong (laugh). I want

them to go easy on me. …But I understand if I keep talking so complacently, any manga can be cancelled

so easily in Shonen Jump, so I brace myself to do my best. Then all I can do left is to send it to the readers.

Its serialization starts this week. So everyone, please read my latest work ‘Samurai 8 Hachimaruden’!

Thank you very much!”

 

 

Masashi Kishimoto

I heard this from my friend Ezra that his favorite RomCom manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War will become an anime and I felt compelled to write the news. Revealed at ANN, the manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War, created by Aka Akasaka, will be getting anime adaptation. You can check out the official website and Twitter to stay updated on any news. The creator also drew this illustration below to commemorate the manga’s green-lit success.

All’s fair when love is war!

Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?!

Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among elite. But it’s lonely at the top and each has fallen for the other. There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the competition of love! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!

Also, Happy Birthday to Ezra! His birthday was in June 10th and I bet he is proud to hear this news. 🙂
