Another summer, another trip to the mountains, another "radio silence" here on Animekon... Say, there wouldn't happen to be any anime editor volunteers out there, would there?... Well, it was worth a shot. So getting back to work, it looks like there's enough overdue stuff piled up in our backyard, since that mid-June anime news round-up, to warrant not just one, but two more round-ups. This one covers the final days of June, and the next one will move on to the July novelties. Not to mention the new anime season swinging into gear these days.

Love Live! anime

The first 22 minutes of last month's anime film Welcome to the Space Show are still being streamed on YouTube by Aniplex, with English subtitles. That alien Puchi is such a pedobear! Or is it pedodog?

The anime series Durarara!! will be extended with a "DVD-exclusive episode 25", which will be included on the final DVD volume (#13), releasing in February 2011. Author Narita said that it "will not be the story's finale as such, but a bonus epilogue".

The furry CG animation series Cat Shit One begun streaming this July 17, as announced in that new trailer that we've uploaded earlier this month. Between then and September 20, the first 22-minute episode of Cat Shit One is streamed for free on IDA Entertainment's YouTube channel, but sadly only in Japan.

Infinite Stratos, originally a "high-speed school battle romantic comedy" light novel series, is being adapted into a TV anime. A weapon system which "can only be used by females"? Candidates "plucked from girls from countries all over the world"? Sounds familiar...

Just to make it clear, the upcoming To Aru Kagaku no Railgun OVA and the extra Railgun beach episode are actually two separate things. The latter is being released this weekend, on July 24, together with an "Official Visual Book". And the real Railgun OVA was confirmed for an October 29, 2010 release in Japan.

An unaired special episode of Angel Beats! will be included on the series' 7th Blu-ray / DVD volume. At this rate, volume 7 should be out in December 2010 - in Japan, of course.

Bakemonogatari's final episode 15 ("Tsubasa Cat - Part 5") was eventually released at the end of last month, after much delay. Albeit free, the streaming is once again restricted to Japanese IP addresses.

The recently-ended TV anime series Arakawa Under the Bridge will receive a 2nd season, as revealed during the first season's final episode at the end of June.

Love Live!, that "school idol project" announced not too long ago, will kick off this August with an anime DVD, bundled with a debut CD single. Studio Sunrise is animating it.

Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian is indeed the mystery "early 1900s" project that Gainax kept hinting about. Predictable confirmation is predictable.

There's even more anime based on the To Love-Ru manga coming our way, it was announced, without any details though.

The first volume of ToHeart2 adnext (planned for this September 23) will include a bonus anime short story. The OVA's limited editions will also pack a dakimakura (hugging pillow) cover.

Phew... that was the easy part. Now on to the July news round-up, hopefully before August catches us.
