The Daily Dose

  • After nearly a one-month hiatus because of the new season, I’m back to doing Daily Doses. This particular post is a bit of a backlog post for the big items from the past few weeks.
  • If you watched the first Gundam 00 series and haven’t yet been spoiled about a certain something, I urge you NOT to go to the official site. I made the mistake of doing so after I saw the commercial that aired after this weekend’s episode of CODE GEASS, and I got spoiled when I checked out the details on the list of Mobile Suits.
  • New Anime Announcements (list almost entirely courtesy of MOON PHASE)
         • BLACK LAGOON is getting a third series.
         • Kyou no Go no Ni is also getting a television anime (instead of more OVAs).
         • ef – a tale of melodies anime has been announced for this Fall season.
         • Umineko no Naku Koro ni is getting an anime.
         • Shounen manga Kuroshitsuji is getting an anime.
         • Mystery/supernatural novel series Mouryou no Hako is getting an anime that’ll be         produced by Madhouse and will have character designs done by CLAMP.
         • Love adventure game Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka will be getting an anime this Fall. This         series is going to have a truckload of voice talent, including the likes of Hirano Aya,         Kugimiya Rie, Inoue Marina, and Tanaka Rie.
  • The Tales of the Abyss anime adaptation will air this Fall on MBS, meaning it has a good chance of taking Macross F’s Thursday timeslot since Gundam 00 is likely replacing CODE GEASS R2.
  • The White Album anime adaptation has a website now with news that the series will start January of 2009. It will feature Hirano Aya and Mizuki Nana in two of the lead roles.
  • And finally, in the aftermath of the leaked BONES document incident, MOON PHASE confirms that he got word a while ago that there is indeed a new Full Metal Alchemist series in the works – an original manga version – likely to be officially announced at the end of the year.
  • If you find anything that you think I should mention on any particular day’s Daily Dose, please send me an email with the words “ANIME NEWS” somewhere in the subject line.
  • Image at left courtesy of サツキ on pixiv (account needed to access)….and yes, I have been reading Toradora! recently

      AWESOME! ^^

      aint that toraxdora at the pic?

    • July 16, 2008 at 5:55 amru-chan

      ToraDora! :o

      Awesome to hear a new adaption of FMA. XD

    • July 16, 2008 at 6:02 amEdZ

      If the FMA leak is confirmed(ish), this raises the chances that the Darker Than Black leak, which was in th esame document, will also be confirmed.
      Fuck yeah, more Black Lagoon!

    • July 16, 2008 at 6:03 amCamon

      Yes! More Black Lagoon! Awesome series!

    • July 16, 2008 at 6:06 ampiccu

      I’m really looking forward to the new announced anime, especially Kuroshitsuji and Kyou no Go no Ni and the new Full Metal Alchemist series, I assume that DTB 2 will also be confirmed in the next few days?

    • July 16, 2008 at 6:15 amnutsy

      new FMA and BLACK LAGOON???? awesome!!!!
      btw…can’t wait for Tales of the Abyss anime…hope they retain the plot twist made in the game…

    • July 16, 2008 at 6:15 amWilli

      BLACK LAGOON iz back for a 3rd, yea boi

      Any1 seen Xam’d from PSN? I actually shelled out for the first episode and so far I like it( <3 BONES ). But $4 for a half-hour episode with a 24 hour limit, I think I’m gonna go broke.

    • July 16, 2008 at 6:57 amNovax

      WTF? so lockon is not dead afterall???? or is that his brother with the same name?

    • July 16, 2008 at 7:04 amLithium17

      I thought the OVAs for Kyo no5no2 already covered most of the 1 volume manga. Are there more volumes I don’t know about?

      Like the ToraDora pic…. read up to the second volume only, but love it.

      Do we really need another FMA series.

    • July 16, 2008 at 7:19 amEz

      Oo, its tora dora

    • July 16, 2008 at 7:21 amLOL

      nah…Lockon is DEFINITELY dead…..that new Lockon is probably his twin brother…Lyle Dylandy

      All this news is great, but I wish we got a bit more information about DTB2. Like say, if it’s coming out next spring or what. Or if production has even started. Digging all the 00 info though.

    • July 16, 2008 at 8:01 amDdadain

      darm it… ;d

      I looked at TEH WEBSITE!!!!!!!111!!!@*@&#*@&!*(*

      you got my hopes up with the toradora pic.
      no news about that anime adaption :(

    • July 16, 2008 at 8:15 amBizarre™

      I hope that Darker than BLACK gets a continuation.

    • July 16, 2008 at 8:25 amjulie



    • July 16, 2008 at 8:30 amSilver

      Oooh! So let see here… Full Metal Alchemist, Tales of the Abyss, perhaps Darker than Black, and Toradora! Can’t wait! After those, perhaps Akane, Black Lagoon, and Ef. Of course, Gundum 00 is in there too.

    • July 16, 2008 at 8:36 amhmmm

      Darker than black 2 and FMA 2 HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES HOPES bones i give you over 9000 karma points! please!

      yay for BLACK LAGON XXD the only anime I might watch ^^

      is there any news for full metal panic ;__; I was waiting for a new season for more than one a year now T^T

    • July 16, 2008 at 9:14 amjeffng9

      it surprise me that they wanna turn Kuroshitsuji series into an anime… should be interesting looking at how the manga goes ^^ looking forward to it
      obviously i can’t wait for ef ~ a tale of melodies ~
      its good to see Kyou no Go no Ni turning into a series rather than OVA all great news i guess ^^

    • July 16, 2008 at 9:31 amGP

      Oh if that’s the gundam 00 spoiler then it’s nothing new atm. I knew about that for quite some time.

      A 2nd DtB season would be great.

      But my real question is what a new FMA would be like? Are they somehow going to make it like the movie and ending of the first series never happend? So a “alternate retelling” that matches with the manga this time? I just don’t know how you’d do it now that they’ve got that movie out and everything.

      But I’m happy to see more FMA also, the manga story is way better, and Winry is <3! <3 I TELL YOU!!!!!

    • July 16, 2008 at 9:39 amSeedFreedom

      so wait… was the big spoiler Show Spoiler ▼

    • July 16, 2008 at 9:48 ammaltesers

      OMG, manga based Fullmetal Alchemist? i’m definitely looking forward to that =D

    • July 16, 2008 at 10:14 amFire Candy


      Thanks for tell everyone all this info. I hope you keep up the good work on The Daily Dose.

    • July 16, 2008 at 10:41 amcyro

      is Tales of the Abyss gonna be a TV series rather than an OVA?

      BTW, remember that “Lockon Stratos” is just a code name.

    • July 16, 2008 at 10:47 amAndy

      OOOooooooOOOOO I’ve always been a fan of Ef and Higurashi. Can’t wait to see Umineko and the new ef.

    • July 16, 2008 at 10:49 amnelly

      I don’t really think the world needs more FMA. Especially considering about half of the anime was following the manga. I guess it depends on how they do it.

    • July 16, 2008 at 10:58 amanamatics

      Third Black Lagoon?



    • July 16, 2008 at 10:59 amInvy-2pointOh


    • July 16, 2008 at 11:00 amPluto

      Are they talking about a FMA reboot, or a continuation of the current plot of the anime?

    • July 16, 2008 at 11:01 amOLDBOY

      thanks for the daily dose :) this one helped a lot.

    • July 16, 2008 at 11:05 amillusionist

      [10:50] “Love adventure game Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka will be getting an anime this Fall. This series is going to have a truckload of voice talent, including the likes of Hirano Aya, Kugimiya Rie, Inoue Marina, and Tanaka Rie.”
      [10:51] i’ll watch it!
      [10:51] i still have the HCG set of that game i downloaded a long time ago =)
      [10:51] :D:D:D:D
      [10:52] Kugimiya Rie… count me in
      [10:52] lol
      [10:53] i am usually not a big fan of H-game-turning-into-anime
      [10:53] but i have the HCG set of this game
      [10:53] xDD
      [10:59] so who said downloading HCG sets is unethical? it’s great advertisement tool =P

    • July 16, 2008 at 11:42 amKaitune

      Definitely waiting for Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) and Umineko. Black Lagoon3 and DTB2 also sound bloody good~

      For once, life is excellence!

    • July 16, 2008 at 11:48 amfrubam

      Can’t wait for Toradora and Index >,<, I anticipate these being the best shows for me next season. Hoping Kyou no Go no Ni and BL will be good as well. It’s just TOO much good stuff coming out next season, can’t wait to see your(Omni’s) Fall’s preview.

    • July 16, 2008 at 11:50 amHenry

      Another FMA series? That’s kind of depressing. I liked the way the anime ended it. :\ I wonder how they’ll go about doing it…

    • July 16, 2008 at 12:01 pmXan

      This is the best daily dose ever. FMA2?!! More black lagoon?!!

      Keep up the great work.

    • July 16, 2008 at 12:04 pmHei

      I wonder about the new FMA series I wonder if they’ll start over from the beginning or branch off from where they separated from the manga.

    • July 16, 2008 at 12:15 pmBlue_Mercy

      Kyou no Go no Ni getting an anime!? Kick ass. One of the most hilarious OVAs in anime history.

    • July 16, 2008 at 12:47 pmH a n a M i

    • July 16, 2008 at 2:11 pmPeachy Zutto

      The FMA news shocked me the most!!! I love that anime sooo much I can watch it dubbed and be satisfied. I love how Ed sounds in the dub even if it does kind of remind me of a squeaky mouse sometimes….

    • July 16, 2008 at 2:21 pmUnknownVoice

      For those freaking out about the 00 spoilers let me say something:

      The “Meister name” are just codenames”

      So lets not jump to conclussions after all this ČspoilerŠ lockon is the BROTHER

      More Fullmetal Alcehmist? You serious?……best.daily.dose.ever.
      I hope they use the manga story – it’s much more interesting.

    • July 16, 2008 at 7:40 pmpuyomon

      Hey Omni! Are you by any chance going to blog Xam’d: Lost Memories? It’s available in the Playstation Network right now, and it’s one of the rare anime series the premiered BEFORE the Japanese.
