Lupin III will probably be this year great success. Behind everyone episode we got Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Eden of the East, Samurai Champloo) as a writer, and Naruyoshi Kikuch (Trigun) which will be doing the composing for the music and opening theme.
All 13 episodes will based on original manga Plot, but still it will be prequel to to main plot, we can expected it on 4th April. Everything else means nothing in the eyes of this show.
Now you’ll be getting an anime adaptation of a spin-off manga currently running “Fate – Kaleid Liner PRISMA ILLYA” (name is a half success). PRISMA ILLYA is set in an alternate universe, where in Illyasviel von Einzbern, Fate’s resident loli and Berserker’s master, is a magical girl (i loved it from the begining!).
Space Brothers will be an anime adaptation of [Chūya Koyama's] Space Brothers manga. Story follows two brothers, Mutta and Hibito, who made a vow as kids to travel to space. The younger brother Hibito did become an astronaut, but not Mutta. However, Mutta’s life changes one day.
The anime will premiere in Japan on April 1, and a new episode will air every Sunday at 7:00 a.m.
One Piece got’s already 538 episodes, there’s no doubt that this anime is multi-generational, so Toei will be re-airing the One Piece anime from episode one, only as a special edition with updated visual quality.
I suppose the bigger deal is that with a series as long running as One Piece, it’s kind of amazing that they’ll be starting from one again for a new generation of fans. Of course, the current up to date broadcast isn’t going anywhere.
One Piece is on TV since 1999 so it’s already at least 13 years of re-airing. Long enough to make it once again for another generation?
