One Punch Man Season 2 is a series a lot of fans can’t wait for. However, with changes in the studio and director it appears that production might be more difficult than expected. As of February 6. 2018 there is still no release date officially announced which might indicate that this great anime will not air in summer 2018.
Madhouse and Chikara Sakurai the won’t be returning for season 2
When hit anime One Punch Man comes back for its second season, the studio that handled it the first time around won’t be returning. Madhouse did season one, which debuted in 2015. That studio has an impressive resume, animating some of the most iconic modern anime, such as Perfect Blue, Death Note, and Paprika. Season two, however, will be animated by J.C. Staff. Also, season one’s original director Shingo Natsume won’t be returning, and Chikara Sakurai will instead be taking the helm.

Interpretation of the news by Frederique Baumgartner – Anime correspondent of VimmboxAnime
It appears that the workload of animating this series which relies on amazing action scenes might be a bit overwhelming for Madhouse. It’s known that they outsourced a lot of animation work for the first season to other studios. That’s why J.C Staff, which is a much larger studio than Madhouse, might be the right studio to pull this amazing feat of.

Darling in the Franxx Episode 6 - Anime Review
By

In this episode we got again glorious battle scenes, which were expertly animated by Studio Trigger and A1-Pictures. However, with this episode I am quite worried for the future of this series. Hiro’s tumour just vanished, without any consequences for our protagonist. I hope that the characters of this series don’t get a to big of a Plot-Armor, which would ruin the vibe of this 24-episode long anime. Having said that, I am very pleased with this episode and I am looking forward to next week.

Here we have it! I believe it’s safe to say that Darling in the FranXX is the anime of the season. There were so many things going on in this episode. The romance is better than in most dedicated romance-anime, the cinematography is as good as “Eureka Seven” and the action is breath-taking.

Finally, after one year of waiting we get another season of Attack on Titan. After the events of the second season, I am eager to see the continuation of this well-liked story. As promised, we will get some more on Captain Levi and the politics of a society behind walls. However, I hope we will not fall short on the savage action of a Human vs Titan battle.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 47 - Anime Review

With this episode the Byajuya Gang Arc ends. I find it fantastic, that Boruto: Naruto Next Generations turned the drama up to eleven. The fight scenes where epic and enjoyable. However, I still think the main villain is a bit bland. Nevertheless, it was a great episode!

The winter season is well underway, and Studio TRIGGER has arrived on the scene with Darling in the FRANXX. In a world where children’s only value is determined by their ability to pilot robots known as FRANXX, young Hiro, also known as Code 016, has seemingly lost this essential ability. Resigned to being dismissed to a worthless life, his life is changed when he meets a girl pilot, or “parasite”, by the name of Zero Two.

Looks like Shikadai will be the focus of this arc as they deal with this Byakuya Gang. Next episode looks interesting, and things will probably get more dangerous as we saw a brief glimpse of Metal in the hospital.
