Aniplus Asia has announced additional titles to its Fall 2019 anime simulcast. Kemono Michi: Rise Up, Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!, and Stars Align will join the upcoming seasonal slate.

Kemono Michi: Rise Up is scheduled to premiere on October 6 at 23:30 GMT+8, with new episodes every Sunday at 23:30 GMT+8. ENGI will be producing the series. The voice acting cast includes Katsuyuki Konishi (Nura: Rise of the Demon Capital, Diabolik Lovers, Kimetsu no Yaiba) as Genzo Shibata, the male lead of the series.

Aniplus Asia describes Kemono Michi: Rise Up as:

The strongest masked wrestler, Kemona Mask.

Surrounded by the passionate cheers of the arena crowd, the gong sounds for the worldwide championship title match between Kemona Mask and his nemesis, MAO…

…or, that was how it was supposed to be.

Amidst the match, Kemona Mask, aka Genzo Shibata, is summoned to another world from the top of the ring and is tasked by Princess Artena to slay the demon king and evil monsters.

However, due to his love for animals, Genzo strongly refuses!

“If we treat demons with love, they wouldn’t attack humans mindlessly!”

His true dream is to own a pet shop and be surrounded by fluffy animals. Will Genzo successfully lead his glamorous second life in this other world?!


Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! is scheduled to premiere on October 11 at 18:00 GMT+8, with new episodes every Friday at 18:00. The anime is directed by Masahiko Ōta (Yuru Yuri, Himouto! Umaru-chan), and Project No.9 will be producing the series. The voice acting cast features Azumi Waki (Blend S, The Helpful Fox Senko-san) as Adele von Ascham/Mile and Sora Tokui (Blend S, Love Live!) as Reina.

Aniplus Asia describes Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! as:

Slightly above-average “honor student” high-schooler Misato Kurihara led a life that was far from lonesome. One day, she reincarnates in another world after she met with an accident.

With a desire to make friends like a normal girl and lead a normal life, she makes a wish to God: “Please make my abilities average in that world!”

However, God bestows upon her something that is far from “average”…

In a world where magic exists, the reincarnated girl struggles to achieve her “normal” happiness!

Through her encounter with a mage named Reina, a swordswoman-to-be Mavis, and the daughter of a merchant, Pauline, Mile’s new life in another world begins!


Stars Align is scheduled to premiere on October 16 at 18:00 GMT+8, with new episodes every Wednesday at 18:00. The anime will be produced by Studio Eight Bit.

Aniplus Asia describes Stars Align as:

An emotional true-to-life youth story set within a middle school boys’ soft tennis club right before its disbandment.

Struggling with various feelings, the boys grow and experience life together through their time together in the soft tennis club.


The second cour of the Summer simulcast anime Ensemble Stars! will continue into the Fall 2019 season.
