At the end of the rebroadcast of Youjo Senki's second episode on Tuesday, it was announced that the series will receive an anime film following the events of the TV series. More information about the new project will be announced at a later date.
Produced by studio NUT, the anime was broadcast for 12 episodes in Winter 2017. Crunchyroll simulcast the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation simultaneously streamed the series with an English dub.
Written by Carlo Zen with illustrations by Shinobu Shinotsuki, the military novel of the same title has been published by Enterbrain since October 2013. The series has eight volumes in print, with the ninth volume to be shipped on January 12. Chika Toujou is drawing the novel's manga adaptation, which has been serialized in Comp Ace magazine since April 2016. Kadokawa published the seventh compiled volume of the manga in November 2017.
Yen Press has licensed both the novel and the manga in English. The novel's first volume was published on December 19 last year, while the first volume of the manga is scheduled to be released this quarter.
_Ako_ said: Will the movie cover a whole arc in the LN?
Nothing has been confirmed yet by official sources. We only know that:
I see, the S1 left in quite a good scene and, the following arc so I was thinking of how the movie sequel will play on it. I was not hoping for a movie sequel, since I didn't know the content that the anime adaptation covered in the original source.
Anyway, thanks for it fam, now I know the overall stuff that will be on the movie.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.
-The Tokyo Ghoul/Tokyo Ghoul:re manga, if they could talk
You are allowed to like or dislike different things than someone else. That's the cool thing about being different.
I'd rather be that 'weird, different' person that likes that one thing everyone else hates than be a clone or a follower.
Really hype for this! Already elated that Yen Press was able to license and print the light novel here in the West, but to see that the series is receiving a continuation (and a film no less) is quite the great news. Hope this doesn't dash any hopes at a potential new season, but if we just get the film, I'll be content.
On a side note, it has to be said that Shinobu Shinotsuki's illustrations are absolutely phenomenal.
The necessity of character development, which is not the same as fleshing out a character's personality or backstory, is a fallacy. So is the necessity of an overarching narrative, which is not the same as a story or narrative since even episodic shows have episodic stories and things with no overarching narrative are still written narratives.
