The new anime of November 2022
Netflix offers the animated adaptation of Lookism, a successful Korean webtoon (more than 8.7 billion views) by Park Tae Jun and published since 2014 (unfortunately not available in France at the moment). Is the studio Mir (The Witcher: Le Cauchemar du Loup, Dota Dragon’s Blood…) that the project was entrusted to, with Han Kwang-il (Avatar the Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra) directing and a song opening song performed by the group ATEEZ.
The work depicts Park Hyung Seok, an overweight high school student who was bullied at school. His life will change overnight when he wakes up in another body, that of a tall, handsome, muscular boy, seeing his old body dozing right next to him. Particularity: he can alternate between the two bodies, simply by waking up the one he needs. From now on, he thus spends his days at school with the handsome and muscular body, and his nights with the original. Under the identity of Daniel Park, he begins to understand how modern society discriminates against people with disadvantaged physique. “Through fascinating episodes with a slightly different mood than the manga, this series delivers a thrilling story full of surprises. Savor Park Hyeong-seok’s journey as he recovers from various encounters and conflicts, and matures to achieve his dreams”, presents Netflix. See you on November 4.
From November 4 on Netflix
KanColle (season 2)
Seven years after a twelve-episode first season aired, KanColle’s shipgirl group is making its anime return. From its full name Kantai Collection, it is basically a video game franchise developed by Kadokawa Games which had a nice hit in Japan, especially with free-to-play on browser (available only on the Japanese archipelago), before landing on PlayStation Vita and being available in other formats: mangas, light novels , board game, and anime.
If the first season was produced by Diomedéa, it is the studio ENGI and director Kazuya Miura (DRAMAtical Murder, Full Dive, Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!) who stick to it for this second season of eight episodes in total. In the vein of Azur Lane, KanColle stages rather original naval battles since the warships take the form of young girls possessing the war spirit of the great ships of yesteryear. They are thus the only ones able to fight against the powerful Fleet of the Abyss which has taken control of all the seas of the planet. We particularly follow the story of Fubuki, a girl inhabited by the spirit of the Destroyer ship, who has just arrived at the Chinfuji base and will have to learn to work alongside her new allies.
