The platform Amazon Prime Video conducted a survey among its users and followers in Japan asking them: “What work do you want to be adapted into anime or what sequel do you want to see released this year?», collecting thousands of responses that were compiled in an infographic shared on their social networks.
As we have previously mentioned, there is constant competition in the streaming market, and although perhaps Amazon Prime Video is not a real threat to the giants in the West (leaving aside the fact that it is the only platform with Rebuild of Evangelion), it turns out that in Japan it does have exclusives and other seasonal broadcasts, so Japanese fans do use this distribution service a lot.
Anyway, let’s review which series fans want to see adapted into anime this year, including:
- Kusuriya no Hitorigoto (The Apothecary Diaries); dandadan; Medalists; Ao no Hako (Blue Box); Junket Bank; Sakamoto Days; Youkai Navi Luna (Fairy Navigator Rune); Chitose-kun wa Ramune Bin no Naka (Chitose Is in the Ramune Bottle); Koukousei Kazoku (High School Family); Kaoru Hana wa Rin to Saku (The Fragrant Flower Blooms with Dignity); Yotsuba to! (Yotsuba&!).
The list of the most anticipated anime sequels, we find:
- Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-); Konjiki no Gas Bell!! (Zatch bell!); Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume’s Book of Friends); Lycoris Recoil; Honzuki no Gekokujou (Ascendance of a Bookworm); World Trigger; No Game No Life; kinnikuman.
Of course, this attracted comments in opinion forums, highlighting:
- «Thank you very much, Amazon Prime Video. Are you reviewing whether to sponsor some of these projects?».
- «Wow, I shed a tear when I watched such an old series that I love, but more people are still waiting for its return».
- «“Chitose-kun wa Ramune Bin no Naka” has to be animated soon».
- «Oh my gosh yeah I need a fucking “Medalist” anime».
- «I really want to see an anime of “Koukousei Kazoku”».
- «I need to see that “No Game No Life” comeback, what is going on?».
