    Unlikely. I enjoy both the SnK manga and anime, what I read of this manga was spectacularly awful, boring, racist, and stupid. Basically, the human characters are all Spiderman ripoffs (using different insects) who get slaughtered... More

Kemeko Deluxe: The Unknown Anime

ケメコデラックス! / Kemeko Deluxe! The Unknown Girlfriend

Having just begun to air, ケメコデラックス! / Kemeko Deluxe: The Unknown Girlfriend, based on a popular manga, is an anime which is hard to describe, but to put it inelegantly, it is an ecchi school romance comedy SF betrothal battle anime.

At its heart, I would say it is a surreal comedy in the vein of Hare+Guu, with all the additional elements piled on top. It is as hard to evaluate as it is to describe…

Shame their budget or venue wouldn’t stretch to 1:1 on this model.

Tytania – New SF Anime Air Details

Air dates for upcoming SF anime タイタニア / Tytania have been released by NHK; the anime is an adaptation of highly acclaimed author 田中芳樹 / Yoshiki Tanaka’s space opera novels

Air dates for upcoming SF anime タイタニア / Tytania have been released by NHK; the anime is an adaptation of highly acclaimed author 田中芳樹 / Yoshiki Tanaka’s space opera novels of the same name, and so at least has promising source material. His other notable works include 銀河英雄伝説 / Legend of the Galactic Heroes and アルスラーン戦記 / Arslan Senki.

Air details are that it is set to air on NHK BS2 at 23:32 each Thursday, starting in October.

Visual details of the anime seem a little scarce at moment (in fact completely absent), so we’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
