Ani-One Asia Resumes RE-MAIN Anime's Stream
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Hong Kong content distributor MediaLink Entertainment Limited's Ani-One YouTube channel announced on Facebook last Friday that it has resolved the music rights issue that prevented it from streaming MAPPA's original water polo television anime RE-MAIN, and has reuploaded the first two episodes. The third episode will stream on July 25 due to having its broadcast in Japan delayed due to the broadcast of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
The RE-MAIN anime's story centers on Minato, a boy who stopped playing water polo due to a certain incident in the winter of his third middle school year. He picks the sport back up again with a new team when he starts in high school, but the fledgling team runs into many problems.
Tiger & Bunny head writer Masafumi Nishida serving as co-creator, chief director, series script supervisor and scriptwriter for every episode, and is also credited as audio director. Kiyoshi Matsuda (Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear, Kakegurui season 2) is directing the anime at MAPPA under Nishida's supervision. Aori Fujika (Name romanization unconfirmed) is designing the original character concepts, and Shiho Tanaka (Banana Fish episode animation director, Twittering Birds Never Fly: The Clouds Gather animation director) is adapting those designs for animation. Kana Utatane (TaWaRa) is composing the music.
South Korean boy band group ENHYPEN perfoms the anime's opening theme song "Forget Me Not." Shugo Nakamura performs the ending theme song "Kowareta Sekai no Byōshin wa" (The Second Hand of a Broken World).
