Also, he will produce the ending theme sang by Aimer and chelly from EGOIST, who sings the opening theme as well. Ryo from EGOIST comments the opening theme “KABANERI OF THE IRON FORTRESS” was born immediately after glancing on the settings and the characters of the story. Chelly, vocal of EGOIST, tells that this might be EGOIST’s hardest song of all. Aimer, who sings the ending theme “ninelie” with Aimer, is happy about singing with chelly the first time, and wishes it would fit the world expressed in the anime.
My Hero Academia
The story develops in the world where every human has some kind of superpower, except Izuku Midoriya (Deku) who is this story’s’ hero. Deku is looked down by others that he has no way passing the difficult test for Yuuei Shingaku without any superpower. However, his encounter with Almighty, his longing hero ever.
Japanese anime studio, BONES, known for many popular action anime creation, such as Blood Blockade Battlefront, Fullmetal Alchemist, etc, undertake and challenges the new hero action work in animation. Kenji Nagasaki takes the megaphone for the first time in months after “Classroom☆Crisis”.
The casts are filled with new but already popular voice actors and actresses, and many act in works this season. Deku is acted out by Daiki Yamashita, who has high reputation in acting young heroes, such as Sakamichi Onoda from Yowamushi Pedal.
Yuuki Hayashi, music composer in many works like Haikyu!, composes the music to embellish Deku’s growing story in a grand and powerful songs. Opening theme is sang by Japanese rock band, Porno Graffitti, who are popular among anime fans by singing theme songs for BLEACH and more. They commented to the fans to enjoy their music along with the story developed by characters full with individuality.
In 1937, one spy elite group “D Organization” was created by the Japanese Imperial Army. The members of the organization are nine men who passed easily the exam and obstacles that only superhuman can pass. After absorbing every abilities and knowledge that spy needs, eight goes around the world to clear the order by deceiving the allies and outwitting the foes, except with one rule; to never kill or suicide, which is the worst choice of all.
The director is Kazuya Nomura who also created the work of “GHOST IN THE SHELL” etc. The animation is done by Production I.G, big animation production creating Kuroko No Basketball, Haikyu!, etc.

Bungo Stray Dogs
The story opens in the fictional town Yokohama where Atsushi Nakajima happens to arrive after getting kick off from orphanage and meets weird people like Osamu Dazai, who loves to try suicide. By meeting him, Atsushi gets to know the existence of “Armament Detective”, a detective group that settles the bizarre and complexed case that police nor army couldn’t settle. The appeared characters are all modeled from splendid writers from Japanese history.
Takuya Igarashi is a director that has been inside the anime creation world from Saint Seiya. He is taking the megaphone for this work this season.
Like the Joker Game, the actors are carefully high picked from popular to famous actors. Osamu Dazai is acted out by Mamoru Miyano and Ranpo Edogawa is by Hiroshi Kamiya. However, inside the popular and famous voice actors, Yuuto Uemura, acting the main hero, Atsushi Nakajima, is mainly an actor who acts in TV drama, but also he is making himself enter in anime world these days.
Taku Iwasaki is a music composer mainly for anime and game works. He is known for creating music for Irregular at Magic High School. The music from the PV has a wide range in tension, which controls the matching music with the scene.
A future city, Sugamori city is the story’s stage. One day, right before entering summer break, Shouhei Agata gets captured by a mysterious girl called Sonozaki, and chosen to become one of the members of Kiznaiver, friends that share pain. It is one summer story developed with other Kiznaivers, who are classmates that didn’t have any connection.
TRIGGER, animation studio that created Kill La Kill, show their “kizuna” (bonds) in this original TV animation project. Joining Mari Okada, known as the scriptwriter of “Anohana” and “The Anthem of The Heart”, and Hiroshi Kobayashi, who he takes the megaphone the first time ever, TRIGGER is willing to leave a footprint in it’s history.
The main casts, starting from Yuuki Kaji, are very popular, but also new actresses are included in the casts as well. Hibiki Yamamura, who acts out the key character Sonozaki, is a singer and a voice actress who is known as Cure Twinkle from Go! Princess Precure.
Yuuki Hayashi creates the Kiznaiver world using music. He comments that he wants to express his music not in a strong way, but adds a good flavor into the work like an onion that decorates the recipe in a secret way.
