Earlier I mentioned a show will be making its debut on Netflix. That’s Cannon Buster and it’s actually adapted from an American comic book. Author LeSean Thomas started a Kickstarter page for the anime in 2014 and all that crowdfunding has borne fruit. The show will premiere on 15 August 2019. Oh did I mention the studio in charge of the animation is also the one that animated Symphogear, Log Horizon, and some of the Macross anime?

Last but not least is an adaptation of a Chinese comic book titled Ultramarine Magmell. Hayato Date, director of the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime, worked on the show with Studio Pierrot. In the show, you follow the adventures of young men working as relief workers who help the explorers of a new continent that suddenly appeared in the ocean.
