We are all happy whenever new animated films are announced. May they be a new story addition to one of our favorites anime series or a brand new original story, we will try our best to go to the movies to see them. Spring 2020 has a nice combination of the two types of movies, and while some of them are obviously things we were excited to watch, others have gone a bit under the radar but are just as promising. Here are five animated films everyone is eager to see and five that no one is talking about.
ten Everyone’s excited: Fate / Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel III. Spring song
Destiny / Stay the night is one of our favorite animes. Even after more than a decade since its release, and after so many other entries into the Fate universe, this is one more we are looking forward to. Therefore the The feeling of paradise The film trilogy, which follows Sakura Matou as the main character, really itches the itch. Spring song is the third film in the trilogy, and it focuses more heavily on Shirou and the end of the Holy Grail War, ending the story told in the Destiny / Stay the night visual novels.
9 Not Enough Love: Violet Evergarden
Violet Evergarden follows the story of an Auto Memory Doll, who is basically a ghostwriter for those who are not able to write for themselves. She was once a soldier and is now learning to live in mainstream society and learn what love is.
While we don’t know much about the plot of the film yet, we can assume that it will likely follow these same themes. We also imagine that we can expect to see even more of the magnificent animation the anime was known for, on an even greater scale.
8 Everyone is excited: given
The Given the animated series broke our hearts, rocked us, and then mended us with its sweet romance between two boys from a band who are just trying to perform live and maybe learn how to be in a relationship by course. The series comes to a fairly complete end, with the main characters Ritsuka and Mafuyu deciding to try their hand at being a couple as well as group mates. The film should focus more on their other group mates and saddest love story they’re all trapped in.
7 Not Enough Love: Words Bubble Like Soda Pop
We are surprised that more people do not speak Words bubble like soda. The original animated film is produced by Flying DOG and has an amazing team of people working there, all of whom have worked on other hugely popular cartoons and movies.
Director Kyohei Ishiguro and character creator Yukiko Aikei both worked on Your lie in April and screenwriter Dai Sato has worked on series like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. This slice of love story features two goofy teenagers who use technology to try to connect.
6 Everyone’s Excited: Psycho-Pass 3: First Inspector
The Psycho-Pass 3 The movie has actually already been released in Japan, but we’re excited to finally be able to see it in other parts of the world. This sci-fi psychological thriller is one of our favorite recent animated series, set in futuristic Japan in which the authorities are ruled by the Sibyl System, a computerized program that can read whether or not someone is a criminal. or likely to become. . The movie will likely give us another perspective on how this system works and doesn’t, with a lot of violence and fun to go with it.
5 Not having enough love: love me, don’t love me
While the great fantasy epics and sci-fi adventures are great, we’re also excited about the quieter films that focus on sharper stories. Love me don’t love me is the story of two young girls who live in the same building and who become friends by chance.
The film explores the ideas of love and friendship and how these concepts can differ between two people. The film is based on a manga of the same name which started in 2015 and is still in progress. We look forward to this shojo romance.
4 Everyone’s excited: Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Kingdom of Rakuga and almost four heroes
We are all obsessed with Shin chanSo we’re definitely ready to see our favorite rowdy kid take on even more shenanigans on the big screen. It will be 28th film in the series, but we’re certainly not tired of seeing it just yet. We don’t know much about plot details yet, but we have no doubts it will be a good time. And with a title like Crash! Kingdom of Rakuga and almost four heroes, we have a feeling that there is going to be all the chaos we know and love from Shin-chan.
3 Not Enough Love: Princess Principal: Crown Handler
The Principal Princess The animated series ran for 12 episodes in 2017, and we haven’t heard much about it since then, other than the announcement of a six-movie deal to continue the story.
The plot of the films, which involves girls posing as spies and a fun princess to take control of the monarchy, continues where the anime left off. Crown manager is the first film in the series, which is finally coming out three years after the anime ended. We’re so excited to see what our favorite spies have been up to since then.
2 Everyone’s Excited: Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet
We have never met a Detective Conan (Where Case closed, for those in the know) anime that we didn’t like, and this new movie is no exception. The scarlet ball is the 24th film in the Conan franchise, close to giving Shin chan a run for its money, and has a whole new mystery to solve for our favorite kid sleuth. The film is quite appropriate for the time, set at the World Sports Games in Japan, with a release date the same year Tokyo was set to host the Summer Olympics.
1 Not having enough love: happy and lucky days
We were surprised to learn that there was a film adaptation of Happy days is set to hit theaters in 2020, since publication of the original illustrated books began nearly 20 years ago. But that’s not to say we’re not excited about it, especially given the updated art style that makes the film look modern and sleek. As far as the subject matter goes, stories of people falling in love never go out of style, and this bittersweet exploration of relationships is exactly what we’re looking for in our spring movies.
