Netflix India is set to release two major titles in August. First is the TV adaptation of Kei Azumi’s fantasy novel series, “Tsukimichi -Moonlit Fantasy-,” on August 1. Second is the much-anticipated global debut of the live-action adaptation of Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata’s manga, “Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead,” on August 3.
“Tsukimichi -Moonlit Fantasy-” initially premiered in Japan on Tokyo MX and BS NTV in July 2021. The anime has been available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Ani-One Asia in India, with both English dubbed and subtitled versions in Japanese. With the announcement of a forthcoming second season, fans have more to look forward to.
This anime marks the inaugural production for NTV’s new Anime Department. The narrative revolves around Makoto Misumi, an average high-school student who is summoned to another world to serve as a “hero.” However, the goddess of this new world takes away his “hero” status, insulting him for being different, and banishes him to the wilderness. As he navigates through a land teeming with non-human tribes such as dragons, orcs, and dwarves, Makoto discovers his latent magical and combat abilities. This story follows his attempts to reform this new world, despite the indifference of humans and gods.
The series was directed by Shinji Ishihira, known for his work on “Fairy Tail,” “Log Horizon,” and “Super Lovers.” Kenta Ihara, the script supervisor and writer, has an impressive resume which includes “Saga of Tanya the Evil” and “The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter.” Character design was managed by Yukie Suzuki, and the music was composed by Yasuharu Takanashi.
The original “Tsukimichi -Moonlit Fantasy-” novel debuted on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2012. AlphaPolis has been publishing the series in print, featuring Mitsuaki Matsumoto’s illustrations. A manga adaptation, serialized by Kotora Kino, began in 2016.
