TMS Entertainment provided a ton of new information including the release date and a brand new trailer for the upcoming Megalobox 2: Nomad anime series.
First they released a brand new trailer, which you can see below.
Along with the trailer they released a brief description of the series.
This is going to be a very rough translation using Google’s translator. It begins, “Not only the powerful match scene with the new character Megaro Boxer Chief (CV: Mio Tanaka), but also Joe’s loneliness and conflict, and his new determination to get away from his friends and lose sight of the way to go …”
It adds, “The story that deeply depicts the character’s emotions is also a point of interest. In addition to the new characters, the characters that appeared in the previous work 7 years later will also be drawn. In addition, a play accompaniment that colors the main story by mabanua, who handles music, is also included. Stay tuned for Joe’s story to move again!”
Accompanying the trailer, they also released a brand new key visual drawn by the show’s director Hiroshi Moriyama.
Alongside this key visual they provided some more details about the upcoming show, “Joe’s former remnants have disappeared, and Joe has changed his name to “Nomad”. He is depicted wandering around to find his whereabouts. Also, beside Joe, you can see a hummingbird flapping its beautiful wings. It appears symbolically as “a proof of thinking about your hometown” in the work.”
Take a look at the key visual below.
They also went on to provide details about the new characters for the show.
Here’s what they revealed, “Atsushi Miyauchi plays the role of Boxer Mack who has achieved a miraculous recovery with cutting-edge technology, Chikahiro Kobayashi plays the role of Sakuma, an entrepreneur who is involved in the return of Mack, and plays the role of Boxer Chief who influences Joe.”
“In addition to Mio Tanaka, parent and child Mara (CV: Nikrayai Faranase) and Mio (CV: Yumi Hino) of the immigrant community where the chief lives, Masaya Fukunishi will play the role of the undefeated active champion Ryu of Megalo Box,” they explained.
TMS Entertainment continued, “In addition, Nanako Mori, who plays Yukiko Shirato, Tatsuhisa Suzuki, who plays Kiyo Shirato, and Makoto Tamura, who plays Aragaki, continue to cast from the previous work.”
They concluded, “In addition, Bonjiri (CV: Fukushi Ochiai / Recollection: Reimi), Santa (CV: Noriaki Kanze / Recollection: Momoko Taneichi), Oicho (CV: Mitsuho Kambe / Recollection: Ami Naito) who were street children in the previous work appeared in a grown-up form seven years later.”
A previous description read, “In the end, “Gearless” Joe was the one that reigned as the champion of Megalonia, a first ever megalobox tournament. Fans everywhere were mesmerized by the meteoric rise of Joe who sprung out from the deepest underground ring to the top in mere three months and without the use of gear.”
“Seven years later, “Gearless” Joe was once again fighting in underground matches. Adorned with scars and once again donning his gear, but now known only as Nomad…” it concluded.
Finally, the show is expected to air on TOKYO MX beginning on Sunday, April 4th. It will also air on BS11 every Tuesday beginning on April 6th.
The series will be part of Funimation’s Spring 2021 lineup.
