HAIKYU!!: TO THE TOP: The Karasuno High School Volleyball Club finally won their way into the nationals after an intense battle for the Miyagi Prefecture Spring Tournament qualifiers

As they were preparing for the nationals, Kageyama is invited to go to All-Japan Youth Training Camp. At the same time, Tsukishima is invited to go to a special rookie select training camp for first-years in Miyagi Prefecture. Hinata feels panic that he’s being left behind as one of the first-years and then decides to show up at the Miyagi Prefecture rookie select training camp anyway…

As they prepare for the nationals, Hinata, Kageyama and the rest of the Karasuno High School Volleyball team get ready to face some new challenges!!


First year high schooler Midori Asakusa loves anime so much, she insists that “concept is everything” in animation. Though she draws a variety of ideas in her sketchbook, she hasn’t taken the first step to creating anime, insisting that she can’t do it alone. The producer-type Sayaka Kanamori is the first to notice Asakusa’s genius. Then, when it becomes clear that their classmate, charismatic fashion model Tsubame Mizusaki, really wants to be an animator, they create an animation club to realize the “ultimate world” that exists in their minds.
Sumito Owara’s popular debut manga running in Monthly Spirits (Shogakukan) will be given the “hands-on” treatment by award-winning director Masaaki Yuasa and animation studio Science Saru!!
Character designs by Naoyuki Asano and music by Oorutaichi will also join the “ultimate staff” creating the “ultimate world.”
Everyone will be watching the adventures of these three girls as they take the world by storm!!


Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it: What happens when a science-inclined girl and boy who are deeply passionate about research fall in love?

An intelligent woman named Himuro Ayame who is a science graduate student at Saitama University happens to ask fellow science graduate student Yukimura Shinya out.

Of course, there’s no logical reason for this love! But as a science and engineering major, not being able to logically prove love would mean that those feelings aren’t real, and they’d fail as a science student. With that in mind, the two drag everyone else in the lab into trying various experiments to prove love actually exists.

Dating experiments, the pursuit of a componential explanation for “love”, measuring heart rate, and defining mood value…

There are plenty of laughs and heart-racing moments in this scientific romantic comedy where these loveable and unique science students try to prove that love logically exists!

Aniplex of America’s MAGIA RECORD: PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA SIDE STORY will be available on 11 January 2020  after its initial broadcast on 4 January 2020.
