Bilibili, Southeast Asia’s leading anime streaming platform with a rapidly growing content inventory, takes leaps in catering fun and entertainment to young Thais. The platform celebrates Halloween with a brand new lineup of fantasy anime titles that will take fans on a wondrous ride through worlds of imagination with well loved characters.
Reawaken your inner Demon Slayer and welcome the return of a reigning favourite anime series with ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc’. The 7-episode arc is set before Kyōjurō Rengoku boards the Mugen Train, and bridges the gap between the end of Season 1 and the Entertainment District Arc in Season 2. Bilibili users will be able to stream new episode every Sunday; this is an anime not to be missed. With an intense storyline, episodes 2-7 will include 70 new scenes not previously featured in the ‘Mugen Train Movie’. The new series’ arrival also comes with highly-anticipated songs, with the opening theme being ‘Akeboshi’ (‘Morning Star’), and ending theme: ‘Shirogane’ (‘Silver’). Both pieces are performed by popular Anisong singer LiSA, who has enchanted fans with her iconic rendition of ‘Gurenge’, the anime’s Season 1 opening theme that became a global sensation.
Fancy watching other anime titles? We’ve got you! Also being added to the streaming platform’s content inventory are 5 new anime titles, available for exclusive streaming with Thai subtitles, only on Bilibili. Starting with a mystical, historical epic: ‘The Heike Story’, we follow the life of ‘Biwa’, a young minstrel with a gift of foresight, as she is caught in the midst of an embroiling civil conflict set in Japan’s Heian Period.
Come along to a fantasy world with: ‘Banished from the Hero’s Party, I Decided to Live a Quiet Life in the Countryside!’ The story follows the adventures of ‘Red’, a young man who was a member of the ‘Hero’s Party’ prior to his getting banished for being a burden. ‘Red’ then comes across ‘Rit’, a princess of another land, and while life is slotting nicely into place as he starts anew, trouble with the ‘Hero’s Party’ begins to brew.
‘Yuki Yuna is a Hero: The Great Mankai Chapter’ is also making a return for Season 3 with more fun in store! A group of Middle School girls who are members of the ‘Sanshu Middle School Hero Club’ previously found themselves granted with magical powers to defeat dark forces from other dimensions. The fans’ favourite magical heroes have returned once again with more exciting surprises to look forward to!
Another notable highlight is an original, up-and-coming mecha anime that will lure you into the deeper mysteries of a futuristic dystopian. ‘Sakugan’ follows the adventures of a father and his genius daughter. The chaotic duo hopes to leave their underground colony with their trusty robot, and venture deep into the ‘Labyrinth’ to unveil its secrets. Good news for Anisong fans! The ending theme of the anime series ‘Shine’ is performed by ‘MindaRyn’, a renowned Thai Anisong singer who has brought the Thai Anisong community to international recognition.
Last but not least, to the delight of BL anime lovers, is ‘The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window’, whose live-action adaption is set to hit the screen soon, will be available for streaming. Get ready to welcome ‘Kosuke Mikado’—a bookstore clerk with a supernatural ability who can see spirits—and exorcist ‘Rihito Hiyakawa’ who recruits him as an assistant to solve paranormal cases.
That’s not all, because this month, Bilibili is unveiling more than 30 new titles to be added to its growing arsenal of anime series including takt op.Destiny, The Faraway Paladin and more. Enjoy thrilling military sci-fi shows? Don’t miss ‘Eighty Six’, a gut wrenching Military science fiction that follows the development of autonomous war units, where young people are drafted from the ‘non-existent 86th District’ to fight as human ‘Processors’ of the ‘Juggernaut’ war machines for a failing Republic that dehumanises them.
