The weather is cold, we have no snow but a few anime’s to look forward to at least! FUNimation have announced their release slate, which includes the debuts of OniAi Jormungand, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero (L.E) and Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess, and the next installments of One Piece , Fairy Tail and Aquarion Evol (L.E).
Here are my choices picks from the new slate.
After six years of living apart due to the death of their parents, the Himenokōji twins, Akito and Akiko, are finally reunited when Akito desires to live as a family once more. Although things are fine at first, Akiko begins to express her incestuous love for her older brother, who only sees her as his little sister. From the images online expecta lot of fan service and laughs.
Jormungand was originally a manga series by Keitarō Takahashi, published in North America by Viz Media. The first season has been licensed by Manga Entertainment in the United Kingdom and Dybex in France. Both seasons have been licensed by FUNimation Entertainment in North America. The series follows Koko Hekmatyar, a young arms dealer who sells weapons under HCLI, an international shipping corporation that secretly deals in the arms trade. As one of the company’s unofficial weapon dealers, she secretly sells weapons in many countries while avoiding the local authorities and law enforcement agencies as it’s all very illegal. Traveling with her bodyguards, her latest addition to her crew is Jonah, a seemingly emotionless child soldier.
