It was decided that director Oshii Mamoru’s latest animation work “Vlad Love” will be broadcast on TV in July 2021 after it was broadcast on various online platforms on February 14 and March 14, 2021.
“Vlad Love” is the latest animation by the general director Oshii Mamoru, and director Nishimura Junji. When the broadcast started, it gives off a strange feeling as if it trying to say “Oshii Mamoru is right here”.
The main protagonist is the blood donation maniac high school girl, Banba Mitsugu, and she was treated as a nuisance by the nurse of the blood donation truck that she visits frequently.
On a certain day, Mitsugu meets a beautiful foreign (?) girl outside of the blood donation truck. Just when the blood is taken out from the pale-looking girl that looks like she is going to collapse, she had a sudden change and destroy the truck. After she had lost consciousness, Mitsugu took her back home to look after her…
This work, which has a strong desire on striving to give off an impact just like a “strong poison”, can finally go all out without restriction. The broadcast of “Vlad Love” on TV will cause a stir in director Oshii Mamoru’s Reiwa period’s anime as if it says, “This is what happens when you make an old man angry”. A special project is in planning during the TV broadcast.
“Vlad Love” is scheduled to be broadcast at TOKYO MX, Chiba TV, and other channels in July 2021.
It is scheduled to be broadcast at TOKYO MX, Chiba TV, Sun-TV, and BS Fuji in July 2021.
For animation, there are many gourmet works that feature "food" that make us want to eat and make it! The "anime food" depicted in these works stimulates the appetite of the viewers and has always attracted attention. However, there is more to "anime food" than just making it!
In this article, we will introduce some of the foods that appear in "Jujutsu Kaisen" and "Laid-Back Camp" that can be found in real life.
From "Jujutsu Kaisen," Gojo Satoru’s recommendation is "Zunda Fresh Cream” of "Kikufuku.”
In "Jujutsu Kaisen," the "Kikufuku" sold at "Kikusui-an" in Sendai, Miyagi, appears. Gojo Satoru, who has a sweet tooth, buys it on his way back to Tokyo, planning to eat it on the superexpress.
The "Kikufuku" is a sweet treat made of fresh cream mixed with green tea or hojicha, wrapped in sweet red bean paste, and topped with glutinous rice cake. There are four basic flavors: matcha, fresh cream, zunda, and hojicha. Gojo Satoru's recommendation is the "Zunda Fresh Cream" flavor, which uses zunda bean paste made from ground edamame.
A collaboration product between "Kikufuku" and "Jujutsu Kaisen" was also sold because of its appearance in the work.
“Laid-Back Camp” Shizuoka's Specialty "Unagi Pie" and Izu's Local Sake "Ike”
In "Laid-Back Camp SEASON2", there are gourmet items inspired by "Unagi Pie", a famous pastry from Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, and "Ike", a local sake from Izu. They are called "Ununa Pie" and "Ike Ike" in the works.
The "UnagiPie" was brought by Nadeshiko and Rin to her grandmother's house in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, while the "Ike" was brought by the father and daughter of the liquor store owner who helped Chiaki, Aoi and Ena in Lake Yamanaka, and Toba Sensei aka a great drinker was smacking her lips.
The Golden Chocolate that Shinobu loves from the "Monogatari series”... "Mister Donut".
Mister Donut, a nationwide chain of stores, appears in the "Monogatari series.” It is the favorite gourmet food of the vampire Oshino Shinobu.
Among the many doughnuts sold at Mister Donut, her favorite is the "Golden Chocolate". She loves "Golden Chocolate," and we can see her eyes shining with delight at the doughnuts in many of the scenes.
There are "anime foods" you can also buy at convenience stores and supermarkets.
In "Dagashi Kashi," there are many real-life "dagashi" sweets, such as "Umai-bo," "Butamen," and "Kinako-bo.” Shidare Hotaru, who loves dagashi, also shares some trivia that will make you feel nostalgic.
In addition, in "Takunomi.,” you'll find "Ebisu Beer," "Dassai," "Otoko Ume Sour," and other “alcoholic beverages.” Kiriyama Nao, who is a great drinker, shows us how to drink well, how it is made, and some miscellaneous information, too. As a side note, when I was underage, I used to watch this work to make my dream of drinking grow!
There are many other anime that feature real-life gourmet food. While enjoying the story, it might be a good idea to pay attention to the food.

Based on the Chinese fantasy novel of same name, the anime “Heaven Official's Blessing” (broadcasting on Jul. 4) have released its Japanese version trailer alongside key visuals. The ending theme was announced to be performed by Amamiya Sora. The announcement was followed by Amamiya’s comment.
“Heaven Official's Blessing” is originally a Chinese web novel, which depicts ancient China in a fantasy setting. The anime adaptation was first released in October 2020 on the video sharing site bilibili, hitting 300 million views in total. The finely elaborated story unfolding in a mysterious and stunning world, with appealing characters, has a great appeal to Asian audiences.
The new trailer features the extravagant town landscape of ancient china along its beautiful nature as the background for action packed battle scenes. An epic story is to be expected from the looks of the trailer.
The ending theme, perfomed by Amamiya Sora is titled “Friizia”.

The Japanese version of “Heaven Official's Blessing” is set to broadcast from Jul. 4 on TOKYO MX-BS11. Amazon Prime Video and other platforms will stream the anime starting from July.
Commentary from Amamiya Sora:
I am very happy to be able to perform the ending theme!
It’s a melody that really suits the enticingly epic atmosphere of the anime.
The song was composed to match the ambience the anime takes place at, ancient China. To add into that, I sang with all my might during the theme recording, while intentionally embodying a sense of melancholy with a tender smile on my face.
I get very excited when I imagine my song being played to the beautiful animation when it first airs.
So, do look forward for the anime and the music as well!
