Animax Asia has announced two same-day-as-Japan simulcast titles premiering on channel this October.
The two titles are UQ Holder!, a “sequel” to Ken Akamatsu’s Mahou Sensei Negima! series and Kino’s Journey -The Beautiful World- the Animated Series, a new adaptation of Keiichi Sigsawa’s light novel series of the same name.
ANIMAX Asia describes the following series as follows:
Tota Konoe leads a tranquil but mundane life in a village and dreams of making a name for himself in the city one day. To achieve his goal, he must defeat his guardian, the magician Yukihime, in combat, but despite challenging her daily, his attempts have thus far only ended in his defeat. On one such day, their usual fight is disrupted by the sudden appearance of a bounty hunter. Tota is heavily wounded by the bounty hunter but is saved when he is granted immortality by Yukihime, who reveals her true identity to be a vampire!
UQ HOLDER! premieres 3 October, every Tuesday at 10pm, same day as Japan, first and exclusively on Animax.
Follow along the travels of Kino, a young adventurer who rides a talking motorcycle named Hermes. Together, they’ll explore various places and meet different people throughout their adventures, spending only three days at each location. Embark on a magical journey with them and experience stories and emotions that transcend mere words.
Kino’s Journey -the Beautiful World- the Animated Series premieres 7 October, every Saturday at 8.30pm, same day as Japan, first and exclusively on Animax.
Earlier, Animax announced to air Magic of Stella anime series next month.
Animax is available on SKYCable Channel 46, Cignal Channel 73, Dream Satellite TV Channel 07, Destiny Digital Channel 46 and G Sat Channel 24.
