New Madhouse Original Anime Announced
Another promising original anime has popped up. I’m telling you guys, this year keeps getting better and better. I will get even better once Shield Hero and Bleach confirmed dates are announced. Well, without going any further into dreamland, let us focus on the matter at hand. So Madhouse opened up a new website and announced a new original anime called Sonny Boy along with a concept visual and teaser promo.
Without dragging things out too much-
What do we know about Sonny Boy?
So as I said, Sonny Boy was announced on a new official website yesterday (28th April) along with the main staff. The anime will come out “sometime this year”. It will be a sci-fi survival anime and let me tell you this, the PV looks really good. Even the soundtrack in the PV is awesome. The soundtrack featured in the PV is most likely the opening and is performed by Ging Nang Boyz. As for the plot-
An entire school somehow drifts through another dimension and 36 boys and girls are left there. They awaken their supernatural powers and are left to survive in that world. Nothing too complicated right? Looks like a generic isekai plot. So to go more in detail-
The most difficult part about writing an article for a new original anime is this section. If it is an adaptation, we can get the general idea of how good the anime will from the source material. But with original anime, all we have are the trailers and the little info on the plot we get from the website. So well, I’ll judge from all the information we have. Don’t get mad at me if I’m wrong though.
The animations look really good in the PV. Madhouse has had a hit-or-miss history with animations. Sometimes the animations are really good like OPM Season 1 or Death Note and sometimes they are really bad like Mahouka. This once it looks like they are in the “Hit” zone because the art style is different and the animations in the PV look really very good. As for the plot, it looks like a generic isekai plot like I said before. It’s nothing too complicated but after watching the PV it feels like it will be way more and better than that. I am really curious how they blend in the isekai and sci-fi aspects. The survival aspect will come naturally if the plot is well-executed and will not feel forced. So all in all, my expectations aren’t too high but, I will give this anime a shot for sure.
Well, this is all I have for now. Check out the PV here. Let me know down in the comments what you think of the PV. The PV is really well done. If the anime is also like this, the anime will be really good for sure. As usual, don’t forget to check out my other articles and the awesome art section of our website. With that being said, I will take my leave here. Stay safe and see ya!!
