CoroCoro making a Splatoon anime

Posted on July 17, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

CoroCoro has long been producing a manga based on Splatoon. Now the magazine is taking things to the next level with its own original anime.

The anime won’t actually air on TV, but it will be published on CoroCoro’s YouTube channel. It will naturally be based on the manga.

CoroCoro will be kicking off the Splatoon anime on August 12.

    I want to see this!

    Well I didn’t see that one coming. There’s definitely a few Nintendo franchises that could, and imo, should have an animated adaptation. This could be good. But will it have real voice acting or Inkling squeak language? My guess it’ll be a 5 minute short type though.

    CoroCoro? That’s an unexpected surprise, but hype none-the-less.

  • Well as long as it’s not toei (don’t really hate em, just worried about consistency when it comes to them and 2D animation now a days), than that’s good for me :>

      What have Toei done wrong lately?

      • Well since your asking, it’s the way they have been handling their scheduled for shows, mostly Dragon ball super in the beginning it was easy to see that was bad management because of how the shows art quality dipped so early (episode 5 is big example, but they have pretty much stayed consistent ever since than, which is a good thing 😀 especially in later arcs of the show) There is also One Piece which uh well that series’s anime has had weird inconsistencies with the art quality(and pacing too). But it’s really not the fact that they did anything wrong, it’s just that when it comes to 2D stuff they are not as consistent as they used to be. That’s why I am glad that other companies are working on it. But at least they are not Gemba those guys can’t even do a good job at CG (poor berserk anime)

          Hmmm I recall watching One Piece and thinking that the something was odd and could’ve been if higher quality. Never seen Berserk before yet hear people talk about it.

          • If you watch berserk id say watch the original 1997 version (which by the way was done by OLM same studio that work on the Pokemon anime, funniest thing I ever found out) or the golden ark movies (3 in total) those are good. the only problem with the current one is technical stuff, it does follow the story well enough so that’s the only good thing I could say about it.

            I think the new Berserk anime started looking decent in the last couple episodes.
            Less obviously copypasted stuff, better pacing and quality overall.
            I’m cautiously optimistic for the next season, even though I consider the arc it will cover to be one of the low points of the manga.

      • hi-chan!

        Crap animation and pacing with their big shows basically

    Video games save anime!

    Seriously though I am curious what they are doing with this series. I do think the names are lame but I’ll save judgement on it till this comes out

    The series could end up being an OAV. Or is it OVA?

  • emperor empoleon

    i hope they use tracks from the game in the anime, at least have the ending maritime memory plz
