Whereas anime initiatives are generally introduced with an extended runway, the lead up tends to be near a 12 months between announcement and launch.

It’s price noting that MAPPA may have another initiatives on the best way within the close to future. Takt Op. Destiny, a brand new collection that might be a co-production between MAPPA and Madhouse, is ready to be come out on Oct. 5, whereas Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the prequel film, is ready to premiere on Dec. 24 — no less than in Japan. In the meantime, the studio additionally has Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 set to air someday in early 2022.
