Looks like there's a special broadcast for part of the first episode soon (only in Japan, no news of an English part)
Seems that the series will be onthe Funimation platform at least, which is good about getting subs out as the show airs. They've definitely stepped back with their English dub production because of COVID, but they've resumed some series. Maybe it'll be English dubbed maybe it won't, but I'm excited for it all the same!

Very short clip of the anime, but I love the animation, actually pretty excited for this

Lines are clean, I'm a fan. Love the series so I was going to watch it either way, but it does look pretty darn good. Hopefully it leads into a sequel, either anime or game.

From the main dlc thread:
I haven't seen this topic brought up yet so I'll just post it here.
New 7/11 pop display with Min Min is now up until October 4th.
It’ll be REAL SOON... possible reveal this week, release the next?

you have seven days...

Here's hoping it's a reveal... hopefully Neku, or Ryza, Or Yugo/any Bloody Roar Rep (I know that won't happen sadly but I can dream)

But honestly I'm perfectly fine with any character as long as they're fun to play as

I'm happily surprised by how much I like this clip. Really hope the rest of the series looks this good. And again, I hope the story of the original game is done justice.

Art looks great! Do we know if it's going to be an original story or stick to the game's plot day by day? If the latter, maybe it'll go past the final day and touch on the stuff in Final Remix.

I think it's supposed to be similar to the game with some small changes to flow better in anime format

I’m inclined to think this is more in Neku’s favor as Nomura said he had no interest in porting the mainline KH games to switch. And no I don’t buy the compatibility excuse

at the very least we could get TWEWY2

but act in the next 5 minutes and we’ll throw in Neku for Smash ABSOLUTELY FREE!

I still say this that assuming plans for Sora had failed if the Disney thing was true, I could see that Nintendo approached Neku as an alternative especially as a means of promoting TWEWY2 and its anime.

Something to keep in mind.

I actually voted for Neku on the ballot on my then-work computer so here’s hoping 🤞

my other votes were: Mecha-Fiora from my home computer (appears in Shulk’s Final Smash), Elma from my now dead laptop (Spirit ATM, hoping Min Min paves the way for her) and Snake from my phone (EVERYONE IS HERE!)

My vote was King K. Rool. I know this ain't the thread but since you brought it up, figured I share.

I'm wishing you and the rest of the Neku supporters luck in getting him in.

So @NekuForSmash on Twitter made this tweet, and in response, I gave what I think is a good summation of what Neku could be like:

"Imagine a fighter with the flashy psychic attacks of Ness and the agility and flair of Joker. Doesn't that sound fun?

Also, TWEWY music."
i need him NOW
