Reports from the Japanese blogosquid
are showing a certain magazine scan
announcing that this July will bring a proper TV anime series of Upotte!!
- the ongoing web-anime that's been streaming
on NicoNico (and on Crunchyroll as well) since last month. Hopefully this upcoming Upotte!! TV
anime will be a brand new series, not just a rerun.
Aside from this, there's also an Upotte!! OVA
coming in October 2012, as a Blu-ray bundle with the 4th volume of Kitsune Tennouji's manga that spawned these adaptations. (...) Continue reading 'Upotte!! TV Anime Announced For July'...
The "hypothetical science adventure" anime film Steins;Gate Movie
now has a theoretical release timeframe planned for Fall 2012 in Japan, according to a report from the Monthly Shonen Ace magazine (via MAL
). The movie follows last year's TV anime
series that was created by studio White Fox, based on the visual novel Steins;Gate
, originally developed by 5pb. and Nitroplus and released in 2009.
Speaking of release dates, the game's PlayStation 3 version is releasing in Japan later this month, on May 24. This edition includes the (...) Continue reading 'Steins;Gate Movie Planned For Fall 2012'...
Oopsie, looks like I missed the last three episodes of +Tic Elder Sister
when they first came out, in September and this past February. But that's only part of the reason why I have just added the remaining full, free streams
locally. The main reason is actually yesterday's news
that this hectic comedy web series is being continued with seven more short episodes. Thus confirming that earlier report
from a few months ago...
So with the previous five episodes released since May 2011, the series will reach a total of 12 anime shorts. These will be bundled on Blu-ray and DVD (...) Continue reading '+Tic Elder Sister Anime Gets 7 More Episodes'...
Now that's a nice rumor! According to some dubious 2ch source
, a new Darker than Black
TV anime series will start airing in Japan from October! The report claims that the third anime (not counting the 2010 OVA
) will be titled Darker than Black: Nanpou no Houkou - among other alternative spellings for the subtitle, which roughly translates to "Wandering through the South".
Some staff names are also being indicated, but since the claims are purely anonymous for now, we're better off waiting for a more official notice on this matter. (...) Continue reading 'Darker than Black 3rd TV Anime Rumored'...
Those of you who - for various, law-bending reasons - have been dying to get your hands on the home video edition of the K-ON! Movie
, can now mark your calendars for July 18. That's when the anime film's Blu-ray and DVD version will be released
in Japan and, no doubt, leaked outside its borders shortly thereafter.
The K-ON! Movie originally premiered in Japanese theaters last winter, on December 3. And by early February, it had earned
1.7 billion yen ($20.8 million) in ticket sales. (...) Continue reading 'K-ON! Movie's Blu-ray, DVD Release Set For July'...

Today's update of the official website
for Code Geass: Akito the Exiled
is announcing the release date - the limited theatrical premiere, that is - for this upcoming OVA's first episode: August 4. This is in line with last week's report
that finally revealed the anime's format as a 4-episode OVA, with a release timeframe starting from this summer.
Following a limited theatrical screening in Japan, each 50-minute episode will of course receive a home video release as well, on Blu-ray. A similar release pattern (...) Continue reading 'Code Geass: Akito the Exiled Episode 1 Dated'...
The official website
of Starship Troopers: Invasion
has been updated with the premiere date for this upcoming 3D CG animation film, announcing that the movie will open in Japanese theaters on July 21. Shinji Aramaki (CG Appleseed
movies) is directing it, from a script based on Robert A. Heinlein's classic sci-fi novel "Starship Troopers".
