Fall has been action-packed with anime updates: here’s the latest so far.

Your Name. Is Getting a Live-Action Hollywood Adaptation

I will attempt to write this without breaking my keyboard. Makoto Shinkai’s incredibly successful and highly renowned film, Your Name., is getting a Hollywood adaptation. The film is being helmed by JJ Abrams and Bad Robot Studios. A man named Eric Heisserer is penning the script—with a range of Final Destination 5 and Arrival, god knows what we’re going to get. As of September 30, Your Name. is the 100th highest grossing film in America for 2017. Don’t get me wrong, I’m rooting for JJ and Bad Robot. Just answer me one thing—who was asking for this?

Your Name 2017


Drifters Releasing Next Two Episodes on DVD (Via ANN)

is one of my favorite shows from Fall 2016, so much so, that I wrote about two of the show’s real-life counterparts, Toyohisa and Oda Nobunaga. I’ve eagerly awaited news of a second season and received odd news today. The creators of the show have decided to release the next two episodes of the series on DVD. Not the Season 1 DVD—it’s own separate DVD release. The DVD will also contain revised versions of episodes 10-12 with additional cuts added in. More information on the DVD release will be in the December issue of  Your King Ours once it ships on October 30.


Digimon Adventure Tri. Part 6 Release Date Announced

It feels like yesterday that part one of Digimon Adventure Tri. aired and as of today, the final part has been announced. At the conclusion of part 5, the Digimon fan community learned that Digimon Adventure Tri. will return for its sixth and final part in Summer of 2018. The final part is subtitled as Our Future. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following the Digidestined for the last two years, and I can’t wait for this final part.
