Animax brings hit animes in 2016 with Express-from-Japan and Blockbuster Series!

Start the year right with great anime from Animax.  The first 24-hour anime channel in Asia brings to you a fresh crop of anime including express-from-Japan series Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn, GRIMGAR, ASHES AND ILLUSIONS, and blockbuster series Assassination Classroom and The File of Young Kindaichi R.

DuraraDon’t miss the final chapter of the new season on the Durarara franchise on the same day as Japan.  Durarara x2 3rd Arc premieres on the same day as Japan, on 10 January 2016 at 10pm, Sunday, so be sure to watch it.

Adapted from the light novel of the same name, Durarara is popular among anime lovers for its engaging storytelling – each event is retold in different perspectives, making for more episodes to look forward to! Back to stir up trouble in the dangerous Ikebukuro underground are the franchise’s distinct and eccentric characters – the headless rider Celty Sturluson, Mikado Ryugamine, leader of the notorious colour gang Dollars, and his childhood friend Masaomi Kida, who incidentally is the head honcho of another gang, the Yellow Scarves. With some new characters and the return of original director Takahiro Omori, the stage is set for what’s been described as “an ending that no one will see coming”.

Fresh from Japan: Two hit anime series to premiere on Animax within weeks from Japan’s telecast!

Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn.  The sci-fi action series follows Nanakorobi Nene, a cybernetically-enhanced girl who moves to Cenancle, where she will learn that there is more to the island than meets the eye. When a super-powered terrorist attacks the island, she teams up with her new-found friends and discovers powers she never knew she possessed.  The series premieres on 23 January 2016, every Saturday at 11.30pm.

GRIMGAR, ASHES AND ILLUSIONS. The anime centers on the adventures of Haruhiro. His world is surrounded by darkness – purpose and mission undefined. He remembers nothing but his name. And when he emerges from the darkness, he is greeted by a world that seems like a scene out of a video game. To survive the seemingly dangerous and uncharted world of Grimgar, Haruhiro has to form an alliance with like-minded people and equip themselves with essential fightin abilities.  This series premiere on 2 February 2016, every Tuesday at 8pm.

Grimgar

Are you ready for this?  The much anticipated anime series Assassination Classroom is finally coming to Animax.  Watch the story about an endearing homeroom teacher who is also an octopus-like alien plotting to ruin Earth. With a plot like that, it is no wonder that the series is already expecting another season PLUS its second film!

Assassination Classroom premieres on 4 January 2016, with two back-to-back episodes every Monday and Tuesday at 10pm.
