of brief reports
on ANN this morning are relaying word about two new boys-love anime adaptations being in the works. One of them is Hybrid Child
, based on a manga by Shungiku Nakamura, in which the titular "Hybrid Child" is an amazing "doll" that can grow if it is lavished with enough love and care from its owner. Neither fully machine nor fully human, the various Hybrid Child models develop strong emotional bonds with their owners.
The other, probably-more exciting one for you girls out there, is Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi 2
- a temporary title for what is to become the second season of the TV anime series based on another boys-love manga by that very same author, Shungiku Nakamura (who also created Junjou Romantica
, by the way).
And since Studio Deen was behind all those prior anime adaptations, it should be safe to assume that they are returning to work on both the Sekakoi sequel and on the Hybrid Child anime - which, as of yet, does not seem to have a format attached (TV anime / OVA / etc.).
Release timeframes for both projects are likewise nowhere to be seen at this time, so leave some squeaking reserves for later, eh? Oh, and don't forget about that 2nd episode for the Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi OVA
coming out this September, or something like that.
