We got a lot of news to cover again, so let’s get right to it!
Let’s start with what surprised me—and probably a lot of other people—the most this month: We’ll get another yuri anime adaptation, and it’s going to be a work that I had almost forgotten about, Fragtime by Sato. In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the synopsis.
What would you do if you could stop time? Moritani for one is using her unusual ability to stop time for three minutes a day to observe the people around her. One day, she chooses to “observe” class idol Murakami’s panties—only to find herself in a very compromising situation when her classmate turns out to be immune to her power.
More or less, the news came as a huge surprise, seeing that the manga is several years old, and we admittedly didn’t hear that much about the manga, nor the author Sato, in the meantime.
Seeing this news pop up now is quite big, but we unfortunately don’t have much to work with just yet. Well, you can find the post about the upcoming anime adaptation below.
<Sato’s comment> I’m thrilled Fragtime will become an anime! I get really excited when I think of the girls’ story being spun in a totally new form. Just by getting to know the amazing staff who will adapt the manga, I have no doubt the anime will be wonderful! pic.twitter.com/BdixUeyjql

We also already have an official website available for it.
Moving on, we got a new, promising-looking teaser for the upcoming new Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica spin-off, Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden.

We unfortunately don’t know exactly when the anime will air, but it’s said to air this year already. Time to rewatch the anime and movies again~
Next up, as mentioned in previous News Updates, we’ll soon see more of Strike Witches again too. By “soon”, I actually mean pretty soon, as the first episode of Strike Witches: 501 Butai Hasshin Shimasu! will already air on April 9th of this year!
As we’re eagerly waiting for it to finally air, we were blessed with yet another promo video.
Oh man. We’re having a lot of anime news to cover this time. The list goes on, and we’re glad to hear that the new OVA of Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya, namely Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya: Prisma Phantasm, will premiere in theaters on June 14th!
Yet again, here you have the newest promo video.
Last but not least, thanks to Chimekolover88, we discovered a new, VERY promising looking survival-adventure game for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game is called Jinrui no Minasama e (To All of Mankind) by Acquire, and it will launch in Japan on May 30th.
Unfortunately, this will be a Japanese release with no information on a possible English translation. However, as we’re seeing more and more translations of Japanese titles lately, I think it’s okay to keep our hopes up for this one. I certainly will!
Check out the promo video right here.
