While Disney has been involved with anime in the past, its streaming service Disney+ is officially kicking off its foray into the world of simulcasting. The service is looking to get things started in full force in 2022, and has already revealed a handful of upcoming series including The Tatami Galaxy sequel Yojohan Time Machine Blues, the new Black Rock Shooter anime, and Summer Time Rendering, which just shared a new trailer yesterday.
Black ★★ Rock Shooter DAWN FALL will have Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass) writing, with animation production by Bibury Animation. That one’s due out exclusively on Disney+ in 2022.
Yojohan Time Machine Blues follows up the Masaaki Yuasa-directed The Tatami Galaxy. This time around Shingo Natsume (Sonny Boy) is directing at Science SARU, with a script by Makoto Ueda (Night is Short, Walk on Girl) and character designs by The Tatami Galaxy‘s Yusuke Nakamura. In addition to the exclusive Disney+ streaming in 2022, a compilation film will debut in Japanese theaters after the series launches.
Here’s a trailer from August:
Based on the Shonen Jump+ manga by Yasuki Tanaka, Summer Time Rendering will also be exclusive to Disney+ both around the world and within Japan. Here’s that trailer again.
