With the Spring 2012 anime
season now almost fully scheduled, Moon Phase Diary has started putting together a list
with the Summer 2012 anime
series known so far... Except they forgot to add Yuru Yuri 2
, which is also known to be set for a July debut. On the other hand, thanks to their heads-up, I noticed another couple of summer series that needed an update in the local database: Aruvu Rezuru
Studio Ghibli's latest anime film, Kokuriko-Zaka Kara
(From Up On Poppy Hill), has received
a release date for its Blu-ray and DVD edition over in Japan: June 20, 2012. The movie premiered there last summer, and a few days ago it won the "most excellent" prize for Best Animated Feature at the 35th Japan Academy Prize
Awarding Ceremony, a.k.a. the "Japanese Oscars".
And another freshly revealed home video release date is for the first Berserk
movie, which premiered in Japan one month ago. Its Blu-ray and DVD editions are coming out there on May 23, according to this random scan
. Soon after that, on June 23, the second Berserk movie will be premiering in Japanese theaters.
