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.

Upotte!! TV

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. (...)

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 (...)

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".

Darker than Black - Yin

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. (...)

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.
