Aniplus Asia Announces Fall 2019 Simulcast Lineup

Aniplus Asia has announced three titles for its Fall 2019 simulcast lineup. These include Granblue Fantasy: The Animation Season 2, Cautious Hero: The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious, and ASSASSINS PRIDE.

Granblue Fantasy: The Animation Season 2 premiered on October 5 at 24:30 GMT+8 in Singapore/Malaysia/Philippines and 23:30 GMT+8 in Indonesia/Thailand, with encores on Saturdays at 20:30 GMT+8 (SG/MY/PH) and 19:30 GMT+8 (ID/TH). MAPPA (Sarazanmai, Zombie Land Saga, Yuri on Ice) is producing the second season instead of A-1 Pictures. 

Aniplus Asia describes the RPG adaptation as:

A young boy, yearning to take to the skies and reach the Island of the Astrals, suddenly found both his life and his fate linked to a mysterious, blue-haired girl.

They set off on a skyward journey, meeting trusted friends, crewmates, and the massive airship to be their wings along the way. While evading the clutches of the empire and facing off against fearsome primal beasts, the duo felt their bond deepening—their lives changing.

But despite these tribulations, they’re still a long way away from their elusive destination.

The boy and girl, accompanied by fellow seekers of adventure, depart once more into the vast blue skies.

Cautious Hero: The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious premiered on October 2 at 23:00 GMT+8 (SG/MY/PH) and 22:00 GMT+8 (ID/TH). Encores for the isekai series are on Mondays at 18:00 GMT+8 (SG/MY/PH) and 17:00 GMT+8 (ID/TH). It is produced by WHITE FOX (Re: Zero, Steins;Gate, Goblin Slayer)

The synopsis is described as such:

Newbie Goddess Listarte is suddenly assigned as the savior of a super hard-mode world. She succeeds in summoning the hero, Seiya Ryuguin, who holds the cheat-rank status, but he is ridiculously cautious?

“I’ll buy three sets of armor. One to wear, a spare and a spare for the spare.”

Besides that absurd amount of item stock, he is so cautious that he isolates himself in his room for muscle training till he reaches the max level before he would approach a slime at full power!

The world-saving story between the hero and his useless goddess begins!

Finally, ASSASSINS PRIDE is set to premiere on October 10 at 23:00 GMT+8 (SG/MY/PH) and 23:00 GMT+8 (ID/TH) with encores on Tuesdays at 18:00 GMT+8  (SG/MY/PH) and 17:00 GMT+8 (ID/TH). EMT Squared (Love Tyrant. Nyanko Days) is producing the action series. 

Aniplus Asia describes the synopsis as:

The story takes place in the world where aristocrats are obligated to protect mankind by fighting off monsters with the power of mana.

Even though Melida Angel was born an aristocrat and studies at an academy which trains mana users, she has no mana. To find her talent for mana, Kufa Vampir was dispatched to be her tutor. However, he was at the same time under an order to assassinate Melida if she is found to have no talent for mana.

He makes a cruel decision to assassinate her because he thinks that it is a wasted effort that people who have not any mana are working hard in this world…

However, he asks her, “Do you want to try to entrust your life to me?”.

He is not as an assassin. Nor is he a tutor.

He is someone betting on his pride as an assassin tutor, to show the world what Melida is capable of!

Aniplus Asia is currently broadcasting its anime series via cable in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand, while streaming in Singapore and Malaysia.
