Most Anticipated Upcoming Anime Movies
Whether it is a sequel to an anime or a stand-alone, we all love anime movies. They are long, and we don’t have to wait an entire week just to see what happens next.
In short, anime movies are all loved and cherished by everyone, but only if they are good. If they are bad, nobody would give them the time of their day, would they?
So let’s just talk about the most anticipated upcoming anime movies that will actually be good and see what we’ve got.
Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen (Infinity Train)
Genre: Action, Historical, Demons, Supernatural, Shounen
This movie follows the events of what happens after the first season of the Demon Slayer anime. The base setting is a train and we were shown a few hints about who exactly will the Demon Slayers have to take on in the last episode of the anime.
Demon Slayer is the most successful anime of 2019, even if you don’t admit it, you can’t deny the extreme amount of popularity it was able to bring in.
And as you can expect, all of those fans were desperately waiting for this movie when the anime ended, and then it got delayed to October 16, 2020.
Which made the hype cool down a little but it’ll be back, soon enough.
Violet Evergarden Movie
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Slice of Life Plot
We know that this movie is going to be some sort of a sequel to the anime but nobody’s sure about the plot yet.
Well considering the anime, the other movie, and the OVA. It is clear that Violet Evergarden tends to target themes that are emotionally captivating. And we can expect the same from this anime.
It was originally supposed to come out in April but then it got delayed. However, the new date hasn’t been revealed yet. All we know is that it’ll be coming out sometime this year.
Yuri!!! on Ice The Movie: Ice Adolescence
Genre: Comedy, Sports Plot
The plot isn’t set in stone, all we know is that the movie is sort of a side story of the popular anime “Yuri!!! on Ice”
This movie was delayed for a reason other than the pandemic. They postponed it because they wanted to make it even better than what it was. It appears, they weren’t satisfied with the result.
But if this delay hadn’t happened, we’d have gotten the movie sometime this year. But now, all we can do is to wait for the studio to announce the new release date.
Also, there is an official website for this movie. The reason why the movie got delayed has been mentioned there.
Genre: Music, Slice of life, Drama, Romance, Shounen Ai Plot
While the anime focused on the love story of the younger members (Mafuyu and Ritsuka) of the band. This movie will focus on the bitter love stories of the older members (Haruki, and, Akihiko) plus Akihiko’s roommate Ugetsu.
The Given anime was a major hit, but having seen that anime, I’ve got to say, it might not be for everbody. Why?
It’s because the main focus of this anime might be music, but it is also about shounen Ai (boy love). However, if you do decide that you want to watch this anime and the movie. You don’t have to concern yourself with the boy love theme too much, it is nothing too extreme.
Date A Bullet
Genre: Sci-Fi Plot
Now this one is going to be a spin-off of the Date A Live anime, so you can expect the story and the main theme to be different from the anime.
The main character of this movie named Tokisaki Kurumi was the main antagonist of the anime. That’s right, the roles have been reversed.
We’ll be shown the dark past of Tokisaki Kurumi…A story that should’ve remained untold.
The idea behind this movie is spectacular. Tokisaki Kurumi has had a somewhat obscure past. From the anime, it is clear that her hobby is killing. But it’ll also be quite entertaining to see her get to the point where all she wants is to kill people.
There you go, guys.
All of the movies that we talked about are spin offs or sequels of some already popular anime. It might be a good idea to watch them now before the movies come out. They are all really good.
That’s all folks.
