The folks at AnimeLab made a number of summer 2015 anime simulcast announcements while in Perth for the Supanova event there and the list is definitely interesting to see. There are some familiar titles to be had here, such as Durarara!! X2 Ten getting a pickup, and it’s good to see Fairy Tail expanding its reach overall, especially as it gets back into manga adaptation mode. But we also see the service expanding into a number of new shows for the season, several of which haven’t been picked up in North America (yet).

In the aftermath of the assault against the information broker, signs of new disorder begin to develop like ripples across the water. Holding his own ideals, the young man who gains the powers of both the “Dollars” and the “Blue Squares” treads the path to total annihilation.

Slowly but surely a new threat gains power within the city’s shadows… Paths cross and trouble brews as the plot thickens in this complicated web of conspiracies.
