From the New World is based off the novel of the same name by Yūsuke Kishi, and it’s anime adaptation is currently available to watch on Crunchyroll. The story takes place in the Japan of the future where five children, born in a utopia town run by telekinetics  learn the truth of their society and put their lives on the line to survive its collapses. The current release date is early Autumn this year.

Pink is by the same creator as Vertical’s previously announced, Helter Skelter: Fashion Unfriendly. This new title is also a one-shot and is about a young woman balancing her job, love life and pet crocodile while supporting them via her night life as a prostitute. Pink is due out late Autumn.
