So… can we call this the Silver Hunter block?
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they will stream two new titles as part of their Winter 2018 simulcast lineup. The company will stream the following:
- Hakyu Hoshin Engi
- The Silver Guardian 2
As of press time, details on première dates and regions have yet to be announced for either title.
Hakyu Hoshin Engi
Hakyū Hoshin Engi is based on Ryu Fujisaki’s Hoshin Engi (Soul Hunter) manga. The show will be helmed by Masahiro Aizawa at C-Station, with Yoshimitsu Yamashita (Blade of the Immortal, Samurai Flamenco) providing character designs. Natsuko Takahashi (Yuyushiki, Fantastic Detective Labyrinth) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Crunchyroll describes the show as:
A once thrived kingdom, In—now governed by an evil hermit, Dakki, and her party—is in a chaotic status with its people suffering Dakki’s oppressions. Seeing this, The Hermit Band took it seriously and planned a “Hoshin Plan” which is assigned to an apprentice hermit, Daikobo, who gathered partners, captured and sealed all evil hermits, and planned to establish a new kingdom. On the other hand, the strongest and an In- royal hermit, Bunchu, stood up against Daikobo to protect the old kingdom with all his might. Thus, the death battle among invincible hermits begins…
The Silver Guardian 2
Haoling Li is taking the reins as chief director and writer for The Silver Guardian 2. Ken Ando (Ar Tonelico OVA) will take the director’s chair on the project at Emon Animation Company, while Yoshiaki Tsubata (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Souten no Ken) returns as character designer.
Minako Seki (Kingdom, Black Clover) is scoring the show’s soundtrack. Studio BLADE is listed as providing animation assistance.
Crunchyroll describes the series as:
Secretly in love with Riku Rei, the most popular girl of his school, Riku Suigin is forced to dive in “Grave Buster”, the new virtual game where Riku Rei has been kidnapped.
