Anime News:

While it’s been nearly a year since the announcement, who doesn’t like friendly reminders? Studio Drive re-announced the return of one of the most popular isekai series, KonoSuba! A third season is still in the works, but that’s not all. It was also announced that the prequel novel, KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World, will be getting adapted into animation too! No word on when either series will premiere, but there’s a lot for fans to get excited about!

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a decade since Rooster Teeth debuted RWBY, but the series has definitely come a long way since its debut! One issue some people mentioned right from the start was the show’s use of 3D animation when it was clearly inspired by anime’s trademark style. Finally, after all this time, RWBY is getting a 2D animated series with some pretty big names behind the project! SHAFT is the animation studio producing the series, with Gen Urobuchi (creator of Fate/Zero and a writer for Madoka Magica) and huke (character designer for Steins;Gate and Black Rock Shooter) also on the project.

RWBY: Ice Queendom premieres on July 3rd.
