Futagohime Gyu! – Final Episode Preview

The final episode of “Gyu!” airs next weekend. The latest episode (51) ended with yet another cliffhanger of the Black Crystal King — the original source of all dark powers that once tried to threaten and destroy the Wonder Planet; as well as possess and control Bright in the first series.

The flyer clearly states of a “30-minute x 24 episode” series. The fact that it is written in English may suggest that Kadokawa Pictures is aiming for a quick international license agreement — possibly have it license under the name “Kadokawa Pictures USA” while being distributed by another well-known company; as they have done in the past with “FMP!
