Random Curiosity

The Daily Dose

  • Both Tsubasa Chronicle and xxxHOLiC are getting Original Animation DVD (OAD) releases with upcoming volumes of their respective manga in a new CLAMP and Production I.G project. The first one, an xxxHOLiC episode, will come out with volume 14 of the xxxHOLiC manga in January of 2009, and the subsequent Tsubasa Chronicle episode will come out in February 2009 with volume 26 of the Tsubasa Chronicle manga. After Tokyo Revelations turned out so good, I’m glad to hear that there’ll be more by Production I.G. Thanks Julie for the heads up.
  • The School Rumble manga has ended. I hear a lot of people aren’t too happy about the way it ended, and there is a follow-up called School Rumble Z coming.
  • It’s now official that Xam’d Lost Memories will premiere in Japan via the Playstation Store in September. It will get a weekly release for 26 total episodes. The first episode is already available in the US Playstation Store, and I wrote about it here.
  • Popular fujoshi manga Tonari no 801-chan is getting an anime to be aired next year.
  • The official website for the upcoming Umineko no Naku Koro ni anime is now open.
  • The Gurren Lagann movie website is now hosting a trailer, though it requires Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player to watch. If for whatever reason you can’t watch it, don’t feel too bad because there’s nothing new in it other than some music.
  • 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.

      So the Umineko movie comes in August? Could someone translate please what’s written on the front page there?

      Where’s my School Rumble san gakki… bastards!!! :(

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:04 amrock

      I hate the way they ended the manga of school rumble, I hope that school rumble Z would be a continuation of school rumble san gakki

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:20 amAnotherGeek

      Haha, the only interesting point in this post is the beautiful picture of Setsuna.

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:23 amKabitzin

      School Rumble Z? That is like a bad joke!

      “I hear a lot of people aren’t too happy about the way it ended”

      Hobo Harima + time skip + Tenma vision + Pie Fight + Tenma ending only = rage

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:36 amKillerB

      ending was not done well.
      not much resolution for most of the characters.

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:38 amGhOsTeDgE

      ^^ And even after all that, KJ still prolly hit his magic reset button. =P

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:38 amDrakron

      Only Tenma got it … everyone else is stuck in Namek.

      Worst of all was Harima, this pretty just flushed 280 chapters of development.

    • July 19, 2008 at 12:37 pmdustandechoes91

      Aww only 26 for x’amd. Although I wasnt expecting something the length of FMA i thought it would be along the lines of Eureka Seven

    • July 19, 2008 at 12:53 pmArtanis

      umineko wtf?

    • July 19, 2008 at 1:21 pmChicle

      Umineko will be awesome.

    • July 19, 2008 at 1:34 pmKen

      dude, when I was the school rumble was ending @ ANN, I was freaking out man…

      ehh, I hope Kenji and Tenma get together….

    • July 19, 2008 at 1:56 pmCamon


      Couldn’t agree more. The story was doing good and just abruptly changed and now looks like it will end.
      It’s like either the mangaka just decided to quit or the publishers decided to pull the plug.

    • July 19, 2008 at 2:22 pmYukiruchan

      Missed the doses!
      Hurrah for Tsubasa OVA! It’ll be great to see the Infinity arc which is my favorite.

    • July 19, 2008 at 5:15 pmChimasternmay

      One more chapter to School rumble right…283… If 282 was last then people probably pissed because It was only a one sided ending , i mean what about Harima.

    • July 19, 2008 at 6:13 pmBROOKLYN otaku

      HAHAHA to all who still followed SCHOOL RUMBLE. i got sick of that “HOOK-UP-TEASE” thing a while ago…lotta people mad huh?? nigga please!! like u didnt see a disappointing ending coming?? but i guess u cant please everybody

    • July 19, 2008 at 7:05 pmGP

      c283 is the final, but I don’t think you’ll get much.

      It feels like the editors pulled the plug on this one guys. And lets face it, the whole thing was BS if it ends like this. It was reset after reset after reset. Talk about a POS.

    • July 19, 2008 at 7:52 pmCrystalique Fairy

      Thanks for sharing.

      Does.. this mean that Xam’d Lost Memories can only be watched with purchase from the playstation store? It won’t be available online anywhere?

    • July 19, 2008 at 8:13 pmMark

      How does that make sense? E7 only had one less episode than FMA.

    • July 19, 2008 at 8:27 pmFlareKnight

      Well that School Rumble finish really did suck. Almost makes you feel bad for wasting your time getting interested in the whole affair. Oh well best to pack up the feelings on that and move on.

    • July 19, 2008 at 9:27 pmdoom

      The ending of the manga of school rumble is even worse than final fantasy XIII going to xbox360, men, they wasted 280 chapters for nothing

    • July 19, 2008 at 9:38 pmAndrew

      Yes!!! More Tsubasa OVA’s. SO Glad Tokyo Arc sold well enough for them to make a few more.

    • July 19, 2008 at 11:13 pmChimasternmay

      Yo Crystalique Fairy– U can still find it online, episode 1 subbed has come out like 3-4 days ago… quality is a little bad, but its still watchable…u can torrent it, veoh it, or even Crunch it./.

    • July 20, 2008 at 2:22 amkencute321

      lolz…. no Harima ending??? Eri and Yakumo??? WH_

    • July 20, 2008 at 2:47 amKakashi_Crusade

      kudos on another Daily Dose!!!


      holy… OH NO! school rumble’s finished? *cries…* awww… it leaves a lacking feeling!

      *reads on…*

      tsubasa! yeah! Production I.G. rocks… but why wait ’til next year? XD

    • July 20, 2008 at 2:53 amjitensha

      hUH!? School Rumble Z? Hmmm… I guess there would be another sequel named School Rumble GT :P . wth happened to school rumble? dragon ball?

    • July 20, 2008 at 3:50 amShippoyasha

      Biggest news obviously is Umineko no Naku Koro Ni. Hopefully they’ll have lots of murders, supernatural mystery and awkward humor again.

    • July 20, 2008 at 5:19 amChimasternmay

      xxxholic and tsubasa…. yeah , especially after the 2nd season of xxxholic only lasted 13 episodes man…

    • July 20, 2008 at 5:46 amCrystalique Fairy

      Thanks alot, Chimasternmay. I shall go search for it now.
