Super Stage EX
First Trailer Released for Aharen-san wa Hakarenai Anime
Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is the latest series by Asato Mizu. Before Jump Festa 2022, it was announced that an Aharen-san wa Hakarenai anime is coming out in April 2022 with animation by Felix Film (Otherside Picnic). Aharen-san wa Hakarenai has not been published with English translation yet, but the manga is currently being published in Japan by Shounen Jump+. The first trailer for the Aharen-san wa Hakarenai anime was revealed at Jump Festa 2022.
Aharen-san wa Hakarenai's story is about Reina Aharen, a small and quiet student with no sense of personal space or distance. In some cases, she's inches away from your face, and other times, she's miles away. Fellow student Raidou Matsuboshi, who's seated next to her in class, is the only one who tries to understand her. He may look tough on the outside, but he's a really nice guy when you get to know him.
One day, Raidou picks up Aharen's eraser off the floor for her. She takes this small gesture as a sign that he wants to be best friends with her. This story follows these two as their friendship blossoms and the challenges they have to work to overcome.
Ayakashi Triangle Anime Confirmed
Not too long ago, a domain for Ayakashi Triangle was registered, so it was rumored that an anime adaptation of the Ayakashi Triangle manga, which is the latest from Kentaro Yabuki, who you may also know as the creator of Black Cat, is coming soon. He is also the illustrator of the upcoming Darling in the Franxx omnibuses.
It was confirmed at Jump Festa 2022 during a Blue Stage event that an Ayakashi Triangle anime is indeed being made and it is arriving in the 2023 anime release schedule. Viz describe the series on their site as a "ninja exorcist manga with a twist". It looks like Aniplex are producing the series alongside Shueisha.

What is Ayakashi Triangle about?
Ayakashi Triangle follows teenager Kazamaki Matsuri, who has long been part of an elite force of ninja exorcists, tasked with fighting malicious ayakashi spirits who threaten Japan--especially those after his childhood friend, the spirit medium Kanade Suzu.
As he fiercely protects her, and his relationship with her blooms from friendship into something more, a powerful cat ayakashi vows to get between the lovebirds: by casting a forbidden spell that turns Matsuri into a woman! With no apparent way to undo the spell, Matsuri must continue battling ayakashi--and go back to school--in this new feminine body until he can find a way to turn back.
Ayakashi Triangle Release Date
Ayakashi Triangle is releasing in 2023. The 2023 anime season is shaping up incredibly with amazing announcements, like this, Trigun Stampede, Classroom of the Elite Season 3, Tokyo Revengers Christmas Showdown Arc and more!
PV Released for Mashle Manga
In celebration of Mashle by Hajime Komoto's ninth volume release, a special promo video for the manga was revealed at Jump Festa 2022. Mashle is one of my favorite comedy manga series to release as of late.
Mashle: Magic and Muscles is set in the magic realm, where magic is everything—everyone can use it, and one’s skill determines their social status. Deep in the forest, oblivious to the ways of the world, lives Mash. Thanks to his daily training, he’s become a fitness god. When Mash is discovered, he has no choice but to enroll in magic school, where he must beat the competition without revealing his secret—he can’t use magic!
Mash just wants to live in peace with his father in the forest. But the only way he’ll ever be accepted in the magic realm is by attending magic school and becoming a Divine Visionary—an exceptional student revered as one the chosen. But without an ounce of magic to his name, Mash will have to punch his way to the top spot.
You can check out the PV for the Mashle manga now below!
