Drone Strike

In this 11-member family, the father is king--literally. Which makes his children royalty with super powers to match! The king keeps track of his subjects and future heirs using 200 security cameras installed throughout town. Dystopian future? No, it's the laugh riot Jokamachi no Dandelion, a 4-koma manga serialized in Manga Time Kirara Milk that's receiving an anime adaptation from Production IMS (Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!, The Testament of Sister New Devil). Be there for all the surveillance state fun this July.

Sake It To Me

Meet Wakako, a 26-year old woman born with a taste for alcohol and drinking alone. Oh that sounds bad, let me clarify--she's strong and independent, not an alcoholic! And now you can follow her around to Tokyo's best bars now that the manga Wakako-zake is receiving an anime adaptation starring Miyuki Sawashiro (Suruga Kanbaru in Monogatari Series, Sinon in Sword Art Online II) and directed by Minoru Yamaoka (Kids on the Slope) at studio Office DCI. Have the beer nuts ready when the three-minute shorts start July 5.
