Stay on target ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…Casio G-SHOCK Unveils ‘Akira’-Inspired ‘Neo Tokyo̵… Anime and manga slingers Viz Media had a scattershot assortment of new announcements at its panel at New York Comic Con. Fans of Naruto and old-school 90s anime should be pleased with what’s coming down the pike.First of all, the company is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Back in 1986, Viz published Legend of Kamui, a story written and drawn by Sanpei Shirato about a ninja who fled his clan, for English-speaking audiences. That predates the 1989 U.S. theatrical release of Akira, typically credited as the entryway to anime for Westerners. Y’know, if we’re not counting the Astro Boy or Speed Racer television shows from the 60s.But anyway, onto the good stuff!AdChoices广告Viz is publishing Yona of the Dawn, a manga described as a “shojo Game of Thrones,” by Mizuho Kusanagi.Ranma ½, one of the best anime from the 90s based on Rumiko Takahashi’s manga, is getting limited edition sets on Blu-ray.The Pokémon Cookbook by Maki Kudo is coming soon, full of easy and fun recipes. Apparently, there will be sushi recipes that involve Magikarp.Legend of the Galactic Heroes via Viz MediaOne of the bigger announcements: Legend of the Galactic Heroes, by Yoshiki Tanaka, is getting more English-language volumes. You can expect to see volumes 4, 5, and six next year. It’s a series with a lot of political sci-fi goings-on. And it’s a prose book! That means it’s text-only. No pretty pictures, except for on the covers.Here’s a neat or horrifying fact: There are, currently, 72 volumes of Naruto. They 32.4 pounds, which is equivalent to 225 cups of instant ramen. The Naruto anime is, currently, at 687 episodes, which equals about 252 hours, or 10 days and 10 hours of anime. So far! The latest series, Naruto Shippuden, is on-going.There will be hardbound editions of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga.The old Super Mario Adventures comics that ran in the pages of magazine-slash-advertorial Nintendo Power from 1992 to 1993 have been in collected, once again, in a new edition. The story is by Kentaro Takekuma, with art by Charlie Nozawa. Take it from, as someone who ran home from school every day to check his mailbox for the latest issue of NP, it’s one of, if not the best, bits of Super Mario media out there.Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time via Viz MediaThere’s a new hardbound edition of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time manga by Akira Himekawa on the way.The anime After Hours, a yuri story about the Japanese club scene is on the way, along with Anonymous Noise, about a girl entering the music industry. Fans of shojo drama are pretty much set with these two.Another big reveal: Golden Kamuy by Satoru Noda is getting translated. About a survivor of the Russo-Japanese War who learns about hidden Ainu gold, this manga series won the 2016 Manga Taishou Award. All the crowd saw was a splash image of the first volume cover art, but there was also the promise of bear fights a la The Revenant. Hopefully, it’s not as boring and pretentious!Next up, Tokyo Ghoul: re, written and illustrated by Sui Ishida, is coming in English. A sequel series to Tokyo Ghoul, all we know so far is that it’s “coming soon.”Sailor Moon via Viz MediaSailor Moon fans have a lot to look forward to. First, the recent Sailor Moon Crystal series is getting limed edition Sets. This particular adaptation is a lot closer to the original manga, but with poorer animation than the 90s series.Speaking of, the original Sailor Moon series is finally getting its third series, Sailor Moon S, released stateside with a new English dub. It will be available uncut for the first time in limited edition sets available on Blu-ray and DVD on November 2016. Get your Rainbow Moon Chalices ready, Pretty Guardians.If shojo’s not your thing then how about some shonen? Naruto Shippuden, which will never end in our lifetimes, continues with DVD Set 28. It contains episodes 349 to 36, and it’s all uncut and all about Kakashi. It’s a standalone story arc, which hopefully means you can jump in and jump out of this particular range of episodes and feel satisfied. Because who has time for ten days and 10 hours of ninja anime? Sorry, sorry. Stupid question.And because Naruto can’t just end with his story, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, will be coming our way soon. It’s about Naruto’s son, and unlike Naruto, he doesn’t even wanna be the next hokage! Which kind of makes it like Legend of Korra, I guess. Fathers, sons—complicated stuff.Hunter x Hunter, which airs on Toonami every Saturday night, is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD in the coming weeks. Episodes one to 13 will be collected in regular and steel book editions with variant cover art, which you can buy at Best Buy. Of course, you can also read the manga for free on Shonen Jump.Pokemon via Viz MediaThe last major announcements were for a new Pokemon art book, The Art of Pocket Monsters Special, which collects sketches, storyboards, and never before seen manga panels from the Pokemon Adventures manga. It’s coming out next year.Lastly, Vampire Knight Memories, a manga about a high school girl who attends a “night class” full of vampires, is on its way in English. Team Yuuki, all the way.And that about does it for Viz Media at NYCC 2016. Forget about the next 30 years, as you can see, there’s enough anime and manga for the next 300 centuries.
