The Spring season has ended and summer has now officially begun. While the sizzling hot summer animes like Free!, Danganronpa, Love Lab, Rozen Maiden and others are slowly making their way, let us look ahead to the future with these latest promo videos.


Let’s start off with the return of one of our favorite sports anime, ‘Kuroko no Basket’. The gang from Seirin High’s Basketball Club (as well as the others from the fabled ‘generation of miracles’) are back and with their latest PV and it’s no surprise that screaming girls can be heard all throughout the video. Kuroko no Basket’s “2nd Quarter” begins this October. (More anime here on SGCafe via this link)


The latest PV from the futuristic mecha anime ‘Knights of Sidonia‘ has been released via their official website. The anime is based on Tsutomu Nihei’s manga which is serialized in Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine. The series is Polygon Pictures’ 30th anniversary commemorative work and is directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea).


We then go from giant mechs to cute, super deformed servants trying to run a cafe as a brand new PV for Fate/Zero Cafe has been released by the Fate/Zero official website. The new Fate/Zero cafe film is based on the 4-panel manga serialized by Newtype magazine. It basically re imagines the Fate/Zero characters as super deformed characters who try to open up a cafe with Saber being the manager. The film will premiere along with the Kara no Kyoukai 3D movie at the ufotable restaurant in Shinjuku, Tokyo on July 13. A second series of joint screenings will also be held on August 8 with a new menu inspired by Fate/Zero cafe.
