Fans of black butler and Pandora hearts will want to pay attention to this twisted version of Shakespeare’s tales about the monarchy. Based on Aya Kanno’s manga, the story follows Richard III of England through the War of the Roses, an unrecognized period that nonetheless ended in a lot of blood – the perfect place for a young person with dark passions to hone their skills.

With the manga that just ended, Requiem of the Pink King has the potential to become one of the next big horror anime and the trailers look promising, if not for the faint of heart. Kentarou Suzuki (Angels of death) will conduct with horror music master Kow Otani (Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah and Shadow of the colossus) by writing the score.

Sasaki and Miyano

The manga series Sasaki and Miyano has been waiting since 2016 to finally get an anime adaptation. This sweet BL, which consists of only seven volumes, is the heartwarming food of high school romance: a heartwarming story of the popular kid and the timid, mixed up by circumstance.

Hopefully this will be a chance for Studio Deen to create a healthy LGBTQ couple, having faced BL several times in the past and failed. However, the source material is highly regarded, and the characters being only a year apart are a big step in the right direction. Sasaki and Miyano will be an anime to watch, with definite potential to be a great LGBTQ portrayal and a sweet romance to boot.

Sasaki and Miyano will premiere on January 9, 2022.
