In our previous post, we already informed you about Studio Mappa’s upcoming project, Bucchigiri, and its official release. Now, they recently revealed Bucchigiri characters and staff details along with its new trailer. Bucchigiri is an upcoming original anime, and it has no manga, video game, or light novel counterparts.
According to their initial announcement, the Bucchigiri anime will premiere on January 13, 2024, on Crunchyroll. So, it is very interesting to see that Bucchigiri also receives the same amount of attention and appreciation from fans as Mappa’s recent projects.
As a result, fans also eagerly wanted to know what type of original story Bucchigiri would bring and in what world it would be set. So let’s get straight to this informative news and find out in detail about Bucchigiri characters and staff.
New Main Trailer for Bucchigiri Anime
On November 24, 2023, Mappa released the new main trailer for Bucchigiri on their official Youtube channel including English subtitles. The trailer seems quite captivating and features several major characters from the series, including Arajin and Matakara.
However, fans did not respond very well to the trailer, and it barely crossed 69k views within 13 days of its release. These numbers suggest that fans are not as interested in this upcoming anime as they are in Mappa’s recent project.
But perhaps later, fans will enjoy it and give it the same attention and appreciation that they give to all original series.
