Sometimes we get a little lazy, other times we’re live-blogging six E3 conferences over two nights, meaning certain Australian writers are up all day and night and are super tired. In any case, here’s a round up of anime news that we missed or that’s a little interesting!

Anime news

An early look at the volume 7 tankobon of Tokyo Ghoul:re reveals on it’s cover band that a live action film is underway and that their will be more details in Weekly Young Jump.

I wonder how well a live action Tokyo Ghoul would go considering last years past efforts with Parasyte and Attack on Titan, but hey, why not?

Anime News

Sui Ishida, the mangaka of Tokyo Ghoul, posted a tribute to Christina Grimmie who was tragically murdered after her concert last weekend. Christina was a YouTuber who was made famous by her voice, and who went on The Voice, gaining more stardom. She was also a big fan of Tokyo Ghoul.

Her death hit me quite hard as I’ve had some run ins with my own type of stalkers in the past due to my YouTubing, while I’m nowhere close to the same level of fame as she is, it just made me think, “All it took was one guy…”

In happier news, Guilty Kiss’s, a subunit of Aqours, from Love Live! Sunshine!!, sold 31,000 copies in it’s first week, and sounds amazing. Listen below!

We also have a new preview for the new season of Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: The Second Plate, and boy is it tasty!

The site for Blue Exorcist has launched a countdown towards something… We don’t actually know, but what we can say for certain is that the site is exclusively used for the stage play, anime, and movie, not the manga. By the looks of it, it seems to be counting down to the first day of the stage play, but could it mean something else? Like a pachinko machine? Please Mephisto, no!


Haikyuu! series director, Susumu Mitsunaka, is confirmed to be returning for the third season of the show, premiering in the fall season! With him, the rest of the staff from the previous season are returning too!

This is especially exciting as, in my opinion, the second season of Haikyuu! was amazingly animated, so I can’t wait to see what they do next!

And finally here’s Sir Ian Mckellen reciting the ‘Unlimited Blade Works’ incantation from Fate/stay night. I could ask why this is a thing, but I really don’t care. It’s all levels of cool!
