This tweet from the official Twitter account for Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans. Hints that something new might be coming for the Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans anime series. Whether it’s a continuation or something completely new maybe set in the world of Iron-Blooded Orphan. It is all unclear for now fans of the series will just have to play the waiting game until the big announcement is revealed.

Kuma’s little Note

In all honesty as someone who enjoyed the anime and saw how it ended. I just can’t see them making a sequel. Like what else is there to tell in this story after that ending. The story is done there is no way to continue it after how the anime ended. The cast of the series story is done. The only thing I can see coming out of this is maybe a side story set in the world of Iron-Blooded Orphan. But a full-blown sequel? I highly doubt it will be that. But hey maybe I’m wrong. Safe to say though I’ll be keeping a close eye on this news.


3. Chio-chan no Tsūgakuro Manga Will Be Coming To An End September 5, 2018.

The Author of  Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro official twitter account tweeted out a message announcing the series final chapter will be released soon. This might get fans sad considering the series currently has an anime which is airing right now in Summer 2018 anime season.

Kuma’s Little Note.

I just want to say it now that this anime is a whole lot of fun. It might not be for everyone but it’s a joy to tune in and watch it every week. If you a fan of comedy where you don’t have to pay to much attention. This series is for sure with a recommend. I have to say though this announcement that the manga is ending thought has got me wondering.

The fact that the series is coming to an end while it’s currently in the middle of airing this season makes wonder though if the anime will be adapting the entire manga. It is possible but we will find out later when this current season of anime ends. If the anime adapts everything it would please many fans of the fun little comedy. But if only half is adapted and the anime ends. Since the manga is ending to it would be safe to assume the anime would not be getting a new season. And that might leave the fans really disappointed. I do not want to leave such a fun series on a disappointing note.

Kuma’s little Note

As someone who really loved the first 2 seasons of the anime and has been hoping the series gets a 3rd season. I do not know how to feel about this VR thing. While on the one hand, it isn’t something I look forward to. But even if it isn’t something I look forward to. It makes me happy to see that there is still some interest in the Spice and Wolf Franchise. And hey maybe this thing ends up being really popular. It might push some studio over in Japan to make a 3rd Season of the series. So this whole VR thing might be the trigger to something bigger in the Spice and Wolf franchise. It’s something positive to look at as a fan of this series.

Though I look forward to seeing what other Spice and Wolf fans might have to say about this whole VR anime thing.
