AniWeekly: Of Titans And Digimon

Welcome, readers, to another AniWeekly! In the aftermath of Otakon, the news front was a bit sleepier than usual. That doesn’t mean that the fun has to stop, though! We’re here, and we’re ready to deliver a heaping helping of anime fun!

In The News

Hey Digimon, hey Digimon! Fans who are waiting for Digimon Adventure Tri.‘s November première date may be getting a bit antsy at this point. The wait for the film got a bit longer this week, as Toei rolled out a brand new trailer for the film.

Attack on Titan: the awkward teen years! Production I.G. announced that they’re working on an anime adaptation of Attack on Titan: Junior High. The new series, which re-imagines the show’s gritty world into a light-hearted comedy romp, will begin airing in October.

Boruto: not to be confused with Steven Wright in a ninja headband. Naruto fans craving one more dose of that Hokage goodness are in for a treat! Viz announced that Boruto: Naruto The Movie will screen in 80 cities across the United States.

Cue the kitty punch! The latest issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Alive reports that Non Non Biyori creator Atto is working on a new anime series.

Now, about that kitty punch…

Chaika, now with more English. Sentai Filmworks announced that Chaika – The Coffin Princess will receive an English dub. No further details were announced, but we’ll be here to keep you posted!

Getting paid to watch anime. Not exactly a pipe dream! Lauren at Otaku Journalist kicks off an informative post for those who hope to transform their hobby into a full-time career. There’s a great bit of advice here, so aspiring commentators take heed!

Dangan-wha-wha? Jeremy from Anime Diet was able to sit with Danganronpa writer and director Kazutaka Kodaka for an interview. They talk about film, games, and more in their conversation.

Melodrama? Meet your queen! Digibro from My Sword Is Unbelievably Dull sets his sights on “queen of anime melodrama” Mari Okada. While the name may not spring out to many fans, her name is attached to numerous fan favorites, including Toradora!, Pet Girl of Sakurasou, and Vampire Knight. It’s a fascinating read, that’s well worth a look!

Weekly Fun Stuff!

Last week was all about Summer Games Done Quick. This event gathered prominent speed runners to plow through the games that made and defined childhoods, like Resident Evil 3 and Super Metroid to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. This year’s event was a massive success, netting over $1.2 million for the charity.

With that in mind, we’d like to present the climactic finale: a run through per NES classic Chrono Trigger. It’s a long watch at just over 5 hours, but it’s one heck of a ride while it lasts!

This Week’s Featured Swag

That Time I Saw Nagito Komaeda At Whole Foods

It isn’t unusual for me to see anime characters in my neighborhood. I live near a DC metro stop that’s crammed with hotels, so Anime USA and Blerdcon take place here. To be honest, that’s probably why I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Nagito Komaeda at Whole Foods. I was out of Dino Nuggets […]
