The slogan at the end is off-putting: “In 2019, Anime Goes Global.” Er, anime has BEEN global… for like DECADES. Heck, ‘Astro Boy’ began airing in the US in the 1960s!
Paru Itagaki’s ‘Beastars’ is being produced by Orange and will arrive in Japan this October. Dainenbyo’s ‘Ultramarine Magmell’ was produced by Pierrot+ and premiered in Japan earlier this year.
