THE FIRST SLAM DUNK
Based on the Slam Dunk manga by Takehiko Inoue, who also wrote and directed the anime film, THE FIRST SLAM DUNK has proven to be a major hit, landing as the 11th highest-grossing anime film of all time in Japan as of last month. Now it's dribbling its way over to cinemas in the UK, Ireland and Malta thanks to distribution from Anime Limited and Toei Animation Europe with plans to release the film this summer.

Sylvanian Families the Movie - A Gift from Freya
The adorable anthropomorphic animals of the Sylvanian Families figurine line are headed to Japanese theaters in fall of 2023 with a newly announced 3DCG film entitled Gekijoban Sylvanian Families Freya kara no Okurimono ("Sylvanian Families the Movie - A Gift from Freya").
The story of Gekijoban Sylvanian Families Freya kara no Okurimono is set in Sylvanian VIllage during the yearly Star Festival, and it follows the rabbit girl, Freya, struggling to make everyone happy during the holiday. The film is the first theatrical anime film for the series, which has previously been adapted into an animated series in 1987, a stop-motion animation series in 1988, and a three season 3DCG TV anime that kicked off in 2017.

WIT Studio Launches Vertical Manga Division

Best known for their work on Attack on Titan, SPY x FAMILY, Great Pretender and more awe-inspiring anime, the witching hour is nigh for WIT Studio after announcing an intriguing new venture today: a "planning/production team" for vertical manga that will utilize their animators and "dynamic graphic expression" the studio has established over the last decade.

Their first title, Estee: Hajimari no Mahou wo Tsugumono ("Estee: Successor of the First Magic"), was also revealed, set in the world of the Wizards Nova novels and music videos (concept art for which is pictured above) by FUZI. The creator group is penning the manga's script in tandem with these key staff members at WIT Studio:

Creative Producer: Keisuke Sato (The Girl from the Other Side design manager)
Storyboard/Direction/Color Design: Nanako Hashimoto (The Girl from the Other Side animator)
Character Design: Shou
Chibi Character Design/Main Artist: Chika Sasamori

A prologue chapter is currently available to read on the HykeComic service, where Estee: Hajimari no Mahou wo Tsugumono will fully commence on June 25. WIT Studio describes the series as such:

Wands and spells. These are what wizards needed to work miracles… until magical augmentation equipment called "Apparatus" made those old robe-wearers a thing of the past.

Meet Estee, a wizard who grew up in the sticks and, despite being trained from a young age in traditional magic by her grandmother, struggles with even the most basic spells. Refusing to give up on her dream of becoming a fully-fledged wizard, she leaves her hometown to attend a magic school in the city, where she becomes embroiled in a battle to save the world.

Spirits of the dead? A ghost town? An adventure of miracles and curses begins!

Toho animation financial report pic related
Comparison between 21FY (March 2021-February 2022) and 22FY (March 2022-February 2023)
Toho animation has some of the biggest IP's around and are top of of their respective production committees
>Spyxfamily
>Jujutsu kaisen
> My hero Academia
Some interesting things
>Merch and licensing are lower than one would expect considering the popularity of the three above
>Domestic is still insane. Overseas ratios are not close to 50% at all. They're 14% and 34% respectively.
>Blu-ray sales are still big part of revenue, as big as merch or bigger depending on the hit.
> heavy decline on revenue despite release of big hit such as SxF. the corona demand might be subsiding.
>Merchandise/licensing go down a lot without new content with exception of "passionate" fans series like touken ranbu (in the picture, it was said as the reason for merchandise sales for the year).

What's interesting is despite all of these (Distribution (tv channels, streaming etc), character license, merchandise sales, blu-ray sales, theater revenue, other) and Toho helming the big committee (They get the biggest cut) They still don't get close to the big evergreen IP's of the industry.

Dragon ball with 100 billion just from games/merch (Bandai)
Naruto/One Piece with tens of billions from the same (Bandai)

Dragon ball Licensing/distribution from toei alone is higher than Toho animation entire department (which has a lot of anime besides the above)

Maruyama was former president of animation studio Actas
Manga creator Yūji Takemura reported on Tuesday that his brother-in-law, anime producer Shunpei Maruyama, has passed away. Takemura did not reveal the cause of Maruyama's death, but said that his family has already held a wake and funeral.

Maruyama was formerly the president of Actas, the studio that is perhaps best known for the Girls & Panzer and Princess Principal original anime franchises. Maruyama was animation producer for both anime, including the 2015 Girls und Panzer der Film anime film and the Princess Principal: Crown Handler six-part film series (of which three have been released). Maruyama's last post on his Twitter account was New Year art featuring Girls & Panzer protagonist Miho and Princess Principal protagonist Ange.

This is only news to me, because my life had distracted me around the time of this announcement, but I didn't see it posted here, so I'll post it:
The Light Novel, Magical Girl Raising Project: Restart, (sequel to Magical Girl Raising Project: Unmarked, which already had an anime-adaptation, as you may recall) will be getting an anime adaptation.
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2023-01-29/magical-girl-raising-project-restart-light-novel-volumes-get-anime/.194293

This one's been in my prayers for a while, guys. Is this man's doing, or God's? When I heard that you could ask for anything, and that God, being a person and not a vending machine, can fulfil or reject, I just let loose, and presented my wish list. I presented it repeatedly. Now Restart is in the works.
Did God hear my prayers? Will there really be a fantastic two-cour Restart adaptation, a two-cour Limited adaptation, and an amazing JOKERS movie-adaptation some day? I dared to ask, but I suppose time will tell.

I must say though: the future looks really bright right now.

Aniplex released the announcement trailer today for the "University Arc" for the Rascal Does Not Dream anime, based on the series of light novels about adolescents dealing with strange and sometimes paranormal events.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YW0MTwrKlkM

A new key visual was published for the “Rascal Does Not Dream of School Memories – Aobuta Exhibition” art exhibition, which will run from March 12-24, 2024 at the Event Square venue located on the 8th floor of the Matsuya Ginza department store in Tokyo. Additional exhibitions will also be held later in Nagoya, Osaka, and Kyoto.

The original Rascal Does Not Dream light novels are written by Hajime Kamoshida, illustrated by Keiji Mizoguchi, and published in Japan by ASCII Media Works under their Dengeki Bunko imprint. An English language version is also available from Yen Press.

The Rascal Does Not Dream light novels were previously adapted into a 2018 TV anime (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai), a 2019 theatrical anime film (Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl), and two 2023 theatrical anime films (Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out and Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid). Soichi Masui directs the previous adaptations at the animation studio CloverWorks.

Metallic Rouge is the Perfect Way to Celebrate Bones' 25th Anniversary
It's time to celebrate... Bones style!

Since Metallic Rouge was announced at Fuji TV Anime Lineup Presentation 2023, it was clear that the new anime series from the prestigious Bones studio would be an emotive way to commemorate the first 25 years of the company made by ex-key members of Sunrise Studio (now Bandai Namco Filmworks).

Most anime enthusiasts know Bones for series like My Hero Academia, Fullmetal Alchemist (both adaptations), Bungo Stray Dogs, Mob Psycho 100 and movies like Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop and Josee, the Tiger and the Fish. But true fans of the studio’s vast filmography know that their original works had an important impact on the anime industry since their beginning.

Also their praise reads a bit too effusive to me, I feel the show is fairly average as a sci-fi. Nothing too novel, and even the execution is a bit lacking.

If funimation is shutting down, does this mean that going forward subs for those licensed shows will be handled by CR as well? I vaguely had the feeling that out of all the corporate subs, CR tended to be the best (don't remember if it was funi or hidive that was the worst).

A while back CR pretty much entirely took over Funimation's subbing business and Funimation only continued to stream succeeding seasons of shows they already had (CR also streamed them, so not really any difference there) alongside shows they had licensed in the past (again, CR also streamed these). The only real difference is that it can't be watched on Funimation now and they're deleting people's purchased copies of stuff.
Most people consider HIDIVE to be the worst as you mentioned.
