If you’re anticipating next month’s arrival of the unbearably cute isekai anime Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear, we have some good news for you.
Kadokawa Anime also posted the pics on its Twitter page.
These new screenshots are from the first episode of the series.
One pic shows Yuna (voice of Maki Kawase) in bed with what looks like a generic version of an Oculus. Yuna was a VR MMORPG player before she got sucked into the fantasy world.
Apparently, Yuna comes to the rescue of a boy named Kai at the beginning of the anime series.
We also see (presumably) the boy Kai, as well as Yuna’s two big bear summons, Kumakyu (the gray/ white one) and Kumayuru (the black one).
In addition, you can now watch a four-minute music video of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear’s opening theme song on YouTube.
The song, Itsuka no Kioku, was posted to Azumi Waki’s YouTube channel on Sept. 8.
Waki voices Fina, one of the main characters on the show.
She has also voiced Maika in Blend S, and Senko in The Helpful Fox Senko-san.
Waki is also a J-pop singer at Nippon Columbia. Itsuka no Kioku/ Tomei no Pedal will be released as a single on Oct. 7.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear is scheduled to premiere at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7 on AT-X; again at 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 7 on Tokyo MX; and at 1 a.m. (“25:00”) on Oct. 8 on BS11.
However, if you have access to ABEMA TV’s online streaming service, you’ll get to watch the first episode ahead of everyone else on Sept. 19.
