*yawn*... Ohayo~... While I'm indulging myself in some relatively-early-morning drinking (for a very cheerful reason, I can assure you), let's finish up the spring cleaning with the rest of the anime-related announcements from the past week or so.

New animes

- Cobra the Space Pirate OVA - a second video series (comprised of 4 episodes), not to be confused with the Cobra remake announced back in January. Begins on August 29.

- Dragonball movie sequel - even though we won't see Chi Chi's chi-chi in the first Dragonball live-action movie until April 2009, plans for a sequel are already underway. Which kind of makes sense, since it will be a trilogy.

- Eureka Seven movie - a new "mythos" featuring the original characters Eureka (yay!) and Renton (boo!).

- Hero Man - an animated series in the works at studio Bones, co-produced by Spider-Man and X-Men co-creator Stan Lee. To be ignored.

- Yume Miru Kikai (Dreaming Machine) - the next animation film directed by Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, Perfect Blue), announced by Madhouse at the Tokyo International Anime Fair.

Stuff of questionable importance

- The third Ani-Kuri 15 season, comprising the last five mini-productions from some of the top Japanese anime creators, is now streaming online on the official website. You'll see some short and sweet animations again, including Makoto Shinkai's "Neko no Shuukai".

- Clannad, Shuffle! and D.C. II: Da Capo II will each get a "virtual island" where horny fans can interact with the lolis from the original games. All these islands will be connected by a tentatively called "Akihabara Island", and reunited under a 3D virtual world called "ai sp@ce" (website), developed by Headlock with the support of the three games' developers - Visual Art's (Clannad), Omegavision (Shuffle!), and CIRCUS (D.C. II: Da Capo II). More about this on ANN. And, by the way, last month there was also a story linking Clannad to a couple of other no-name MMORPGs...

- The first image from Ponyo has surfaced. Apparently the-other-first image didn't qualify as... whatever.

- Rewrite is the next visual-novel game developed by Key (Kanon, Air, Clannad, Little Busters!). It was announced on April 1, but it's no joke. No, sir!

- Speaking of games, Type-Moon's next PC game was finally unveiled this month - Mahou Tsukai no Yoru: Witch on the Holy Night. More about it on Akihabara Channel, via HD.

- To Love-Ru uncensored in the upcoming DVD version? Maybe. Lala's nipples are clearly visible in these alleged production artworks, so... yeah, time to restock on tissues.

- Naruto Shippuuden: Kizuna (Bonds) is the official title announced for the upcoming second Naruto movie, which will premiere on August 2.

- The Gurren Lagann animation film remake announced last month now also has an official title - Gekijouban Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Guren-hen (Crimson Chapter) - and also an official release date: September 6.
