At the 2017 Anime Expo, animation studio Kadokawa announced three brand new anime titles!
The first one they announced is an adaptation of Nanahiko Takagi’s manga Angolmois. Angolmois is slated for a 2018 release, but it doesn’t state which season it will be a part of. The manga has been publishing since February 26, 2013 and is about samurai defending Japan against Mongol invaders.
The second title announced by Kadokawa is Project D. A synopsis for the time traveling anime is as follows:
When development engineer Delida wakes up in the future from a cold sleep, his girlfriend isn’t there… he decides to go back 10 years in time to ‘that incident’ to keep his promise with her.
The key to get her back is a time leap.
No release date for Project D has been announced as of yet, but a promotional trailer was released.
The third title announced by Kadokawa is an adaptation of Aneko Yusagi’s light novel The Rising of the Shield Hero (Tate no Yūsha no Nariagari). No release date for the title has been announced as of yet.
One Peace Books describes the story of The Rising of the Shield Hero as follows:
Naofumi Iwatani, an uncharismatic otaku who spends his days on games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers he is one of four heroes equipped with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from its prophesied destruction. As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all is not as it seems. Naofumi is soon alone, penniless, and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he is left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the world!
