FIND THESE ANIMATES ON THE SITES OF DNA, WAKANIM & CRUNCHYROLL.
Haruka Nanase is a high school student with a passion for swimming. The day he learned of the closure of his primary school, he went there on the sly, accompanied by his former comrades.
Nostalgic, they hope to find there the trophy they had won during their last team competition. There, they come face to face with their partner at the time: Rin Matsuoka. But the latter is no longer the playful little boy they used to know. Their childhood friend has changed a lot …
Inspired by the famous Japanese light novel High Speed! of Koji Oji, Free! has become very popular and has built up a real community over the seasons. The story while simple, turns out to be incredibly touching and filled with humor.
Directed by Kyoto Animation studios (Violet Evergarden, Silent Voice), the anime can boast an undeniable quality of drawing, fluid and colorful. Which makes it an adaptation as entertaining as it is beautiful to watch. While it is out of interest in sport or for the muscular bodies of its characters, Free! will definitely make you want to dive into the pool!
And after High Speed: Free! Starting Days and Free! Take Your Marks, two new films will close the story of Haru, Rin and their comrades. The first will air on September 17 in Japan. The second is expected for April 2022.
THE DUKE OF DEATH AND HIS MAID (WAKANIM)
In a large mansion, the young Duke lives under the yoke of a fatal curse cast by a witch: he causes the death of everything he touches.
Reniee of all, he lives alone with his mischievous young maid, Alice, who loves to tease him. Although unable to touch each other, they quickly fall in love with each other. Driven by his feelings, will the young duke manage to free himself from his curse?
It’s THE romantic comedy of summer! The Duke of Death and His Maid is the perfect weekly rendezvous to unwind after a week of work.
With its adorable and innocent characters, the anime brilliantly adapts Koharu Inoue’s manga through a subtle mix of 2D and 3D offered by JC Staff studios (Bakuman, One Punch Man …). Note all the same that the series has a little ecchi side.
Corn The Duke of Death and His Maid above all remains an anime full of sweetness and love: a real anti-stress moment that warms hearts!
MOTHER OF THE GODDESS ‘DORMITORY (CRUNCHYROLL)
Following the fire in his house and his father’s flight, Kôshi Nagumo, a schoolboy in 5th year, finds himself wandering in the street. Hungry and lying on the ground, he meets a student who will take him to her university home and make a funny proposition: become the governess of the said home, known to have problems …
Mother of the Goddess Dormitory … With a title like that, curiosity can only be piqued! Based on the manga Megami-ryou no Ryoubo-kun by Hino, this anime fully plays the ecchi card (eroticism) with an assumed panache, from the first images. ADN also offers two versions, one censored and one uncensored, where the fan service is present, breasts and buttocks unveiling themselves shamelessly.
Fans of the genre will appreciate it, others will be able to go their way. However, it takes something for everyone and this series is rather funny, chaining the funny situations, not missing an opportunity to put his young hero in very awkward positions. A curiosity that is sure to amaze you!
