Original Tiger and Bunny Director not Returning

The director of the original Tiger and Bunny series, Keiichi Sato, is not returning to direct the new project. According to Sato, he submitted an idea for a sequel two years ago but it was not accepted. With the director of the movies also not returning, we simply don’t know who will be involved in the new project as of now.

Armed Girl’s Machiavellism Coming to HIDIVE

In what is becoming a growing trend, another Amazon-only anime makes its way to the HIDIVE service. I would assume this was part of whatever deal Sentai and Amazon made behind closed doors and as such, will continue with the rest of Amazon’s catalogue, from that season at least.

Viz Licenses Captain Tsubasa

Viz Media has announced that it has licensed the new Captain Tsubasa anime and also have rights for Latin America. Honestly, I don’t know if this was wise. I know sports anime is making waves recently but a big license like that is still a risk and could be a repeat of their Prince of Tennis fiasco.
