JUJUTSU KAISEN (CRUNCHYROLL, WAKANIM)
Suffering, regrets, humiliations … all these negative feelings that humans feel are gradually transformed into demonic creatures called plagues. Reaching out all over the world, they are capable of leading people to terrible misfortunes and, sometimes, even killing them.
Ordinary high school student, Yûji Itadori saves a friend attacked by a plague, by devouring a finger of the demon Ryômen Sukuna. Therefore, he finds himself forced to share his body with the latter. To ward off the threat once and for all, he must find all of Sukuna’s fingers.
Jujutsu Kaisen has become the lively event of 2020! The work of Gege Akutami, which is a hit in Weekly Shônen Jump magazine, features demons and exorcists in an exciting and dynamic dark fantasy atmosphere.
In addition to an ultra qualitative animation signed MAPPA, the series can boast of having a palette of characters, each more charismatic than the next. In short, Jujutsu Kaisen is a tasty mix of action, humor and fantasy.
And after an acclaimed and multi-awarded season 1, a prequel film, adaptation of volume 0, is expected for a theatrical release on December 24 in Japan. A first trailer released this week reveals powerful images and large-scale action scenes! We also hope for a broadcast in French cinemas.
BUNGO STRAY DOGS (CRUNCHYROLL)
Atsushi Nakajima, a wandering orphan, sees his life turned upside down the day he saves a man from a suicide attempt. The latter, member of a Detective Agency with fantastic powers, then offers him to join their ranks.
But during their interventions, they often find themselves confronted with the port Mafia which also brings together extraordinary members. When Atsushi’s gift reached them, the young man’s head was put at a price.
The mysterious and ambitious scenario of Bungo Stray Dogs is the work of mangaka Asagiri Kafuka and has been adapted in series since 2016 by Bones studios, whose quality of animation is no longer to be proven (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, My Hero Academia …).
This anime, which combines both investigations and the supernatural, is particularly distinguished by its number of colorful characters, and by the origin of their creation. Indeed, each is inspired by an author of the literature, whose name it bears. Something to learn and have fun at the same time, since the series is not lacking in humor, nor in ever more astonishing intrigues.
Add to that its breathless rhythm and its psychological dimension, and it is the perfect work to get started in the genre. seinen. Now is the perfect time to start: a season 4 has just been announced!
TIGER & BUNNY (DNA)
Released for the first time in 2011, Tiger & Bunny, with its funny title, takes us into the unusual daily life of Stern Build City. In this city, the superheroes are honored through a system of sponsors and a television show.
Among them, the lone veteran called Wild Tiger is forced overnight to team up with a rookie: Barnaby Brooks Jr whom he calls Bunny. With their visions of the profession diametrically opposed, they will have to redouble their efforts to succeed in saving as many people as possible, without losing popularity.
Original and dynamic, Tiger & Bunny has stood out from other superhero animes thanks to its original approach and its protagonists far from clichés. An atypical and endearing team whose bickering will only make you smile.
Built around a “reality TV” theme, the psychology of its characters is really all the charm of this series which, at first glance, can give the impression of being just another anime of the mecha genre.
Action and humor punctuate the adventures of this eccentric duo which turns out to be much more complementary than it seems. And after eleven years of waiting, Tiger & Bunny will finally be back for a season 2 in April 2022 on Netflix!
