Although no official description of the series has been revealed, Manga Plus describes the manga as:
Upon learning of Ushio’s death, Shinpei returns to his hometown of Wakayama town on Hitogashima and reunites with the family of his childhood friend. The funeral is going well, but below the surface something strange is brewing on the island. What mysteries await him on this isolated summer island?
Daylight saving time rendering won’t be the only anime within Disney’s Asia-Pacific content expansion, as Disney + has announced several other titles slated for release in the future. This announcement officially welcomes Disney + to the group of streaming platforms like Netflix that have also joined the race to become the best anime streaming service.
At Disney + ‘s Asia-Pacific Focused Content Showcase Event, Asia-Pacific Content and Development Manager Jessica Kam-Engle said:
“Our production strategy is centered on collaborating with the best local storytellers in the region, leveraging our brand power, scale and dedication to creative excellence. We look forward to collaborating with award-winning and emerging creative talents in Asia-Pacific and sharing authentic stories that reflect this region’s unique cultural and social dynamics to a global audience. “
Another anime title planned for Disney + is Twisted Wonderland, which will be based on the popular mobile application of the same name. The mobile app for Twisted Wonderland takes place in a boarding school for magic and revolves around Disney villains such as Jafar, Queen of Hearts, Hades, Scar, The Evil Queen and Ursula.
Per Comicbook, other anime titles that have been announced by Disney include:
- Black Rock Shooter Down – This series will follow a girl with mysterious characteristics and powers, as she has the ability to quickly use a high powered cannon against enemies.
- Yojohan Time Machine Blues – A sequel to The Tatami Galaxy, Yojohan’s Time Machine Blues will be a brand new Disney + exclusive animated series.
- Sixth sense kiss – In this romantic comedy, a girl has the ability to see the future… but only the future of those she embraces.
