The Japanese animation studio has become “the house of great projects”
To this day the name of MAPPA It has become a meme, but not for a bad reason. Every time there is a rumor about a very successful manga/light novel and that it could be preparing its jump to anime, thousands of fans appear with requests that please this studio be responsible for creating its animation. And the truth is that it makes a lot of sense, because in my opinion we are before “the new Madhouse”.
A-1 Pictures, CloverWorks, ufotable and WIT Studio are companies that do an excellent job of creating series and movies, however I don’t think any of them are more popular than MAPPA right now. Your work may be liked more or less, but it is undeniable that its release schedule has become absolutely monstrous. There is no study that brings together so many works acclaimed by the public, and I refer to the evidence. It’s time to take a look at the future shiny of the study.
We have just entered a new year that looks just as good as the previous one. There are already confirmed several highly anticipated premieres for 2023, and MAPPA will be in charge of launching up to five animes different in the coming months. And they are not mucus:
- Vinland Saga (Season 2) – January 10🪓⛄
- Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill – January 11🍳👨🏻🍳
- Jujutsu Kaisen (Season 2) – July👹🈴🈁
- shingeki no kyojin (not confirmed but most likely) – 2023🧍♂️💀🧣
And for 2024?
MAPPA has a spectacular year ahead of it, there is no doubt about that. Now let’s go a step further and let’s enter the field of leaks and speculation. The company hardly has announced projects for 2024although if we stop to think a little about the possibilities we can get several options that are plausible.
- Chainsaw Man (Season 2): Although it has its detractors, the Chainsaw Man anime turned out to be an international success that ended with an open ending that connects with a new season. We will have to wait a long time, but I am sure that next year we will have more episodes of Denji’s story.😈🚬🩸
- One Punch Man (Season 3): Some time ago it was confirmed that OPM would return with a new season by a different studio. The insider shonenleaks leaked that said company is MAPPA, and this news was what it cost you the suspension of your account, and that is something that has reinforced his report. Will this year be confirmed as an anime for 2024?👊🏻👨🦲
Personally, and outside of the eternal debate of which studio makes the best animation for an anime, I think that currently there is no company more important than MAPPA (with the exception of Studio Ghibli of course). Your future is absolutely bright and even puts some fear. What do you think?
