The trailer also gives fans a sneak peek at this season’s opening song, TK by Ling Tosite Sigure, and characters from the manga’s Star and Stripe arc which this season adapts. A fourth movie in the franchise called You’re Next is also in the works, set to hit theatres this summer in Japan.

365 Days to the Wedding

We’re getting another rom-com anime this year, this time centered on two introverted co-workers who make a desperate attempt to avoid a workplace transfer… by marrying each other. It’s all pretend, of course - until it isn’t.
