To Your Eternity / Fumetsu no Anata e
From the magaka Yoshitoki Oima, his first 20 episodes have arrived this year. The plot centers on Fushi, an Orb that changes shape until it becomes a child. With the idea of the classic hero’s journey mixed with that of learning to be human, a beautiful and endearing story is reflected that proposes a somewhat different formula, with a somewhat simpler level of animation than that seen in other productions but still thus it is highly recommended if we want to enjoy a special proposal.
Available on Crunchyroll, this anime focuses on the story of Memempu, a girl who wishes she could get out of the underworld in which they find themselves. Called the “Labyrinth” and populated by a good handful of dangerous monsters, her father eventually relents and accompanies his daughter on her adventures beyond the safety of the colonies. With a paternal relationship little treated in anime, it is a recommended work for all lovers of adventure and good stories who want to discover something different.
Star Wars: Visions
There is no doubt that saga Star Wars It is one of the most popular and recognized in all history.
