New Houshin Engi Anime! The Hype is Real!!

So it’s been announced that the manga Houshin Engi is finally getting an anime reboot… Excuse me… -breaths in- AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! 8DDDDD

Alright, I think I’m goo—- ad$@&!#hH%J!!!!

Now time to get serious. Houshin Engi is manga series that was serialized in Shounen Jump from June 11, 1996 to October 24, 2000. On July 3rd, 1999 to December 25, 1999 it aired in Japan as a 26 episode series, and later spanned an English Dub here in America by VIZ Media.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that the manga was still ongoing at the time of the anime being aired, the anime suffered from a plot change. The manga itself is 204 chapters long, so I’m anticipating a fairly long anime out of this reboot. Looking at Magi that’s well over 300 chapters, having 2 seasons that are fairly paced out and only covering up to about 150+ chapters, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Houshin Engi needs to be at least 50 or so episodes… at LEAST. Preferably a little bit longer, but 50 episodes would probably satisfy me and other fans of this manga just fine.

Right now, I don’t think there has been much information released on the new anime. However, there has been three new voice actors and their roles revealed:

Taikoubou: Kensho Ono
Bunchuu: Tomoaki Maeno
Sibuxiang: Takahiro Sakurai

I think Kensho Ono will do a great job as Taikoubou, I can definitely imagine his voice for the role. Will miss Yuuki Hiro, but I don’t think he’s doing much voice acting these days. Sakurai-san sounds like an interesting choice for Sibu, but I’m sure he’ll get it done right, I just can’t wait to here it, it’ll be cute, haha.

I’m really going to be following the news on this anime, so I’ll try to update things as they are revealed. I really do hope that it airs soon, because I am dying for it already!
