The Daily Dose

2009 04 01
  • It was announced at the end of the 25th episode of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season that a film was in the works and will open in Japanese theaters in 2010. So that should be plenty of time for me to catch up with both seasons.
  • The second promotional video for Sengoku Basara, a video game adaptation for the Playstation 2, is up for streaming at the official website. It premieres April 1st.
  • It was announced by GDH that the company will sell off its game development subsidiary Gonzo Rosso. The company plans to refocus itself on its animation business with Gonzo. I’ve never played any of their games, but I’m sure this is sad news indeed for somebody.
  • Yoko Kamio‘s Matsuri Special SP manga spinoff will be in the July issue of Shueisha‘s Deluxe Margaret magazine. In the same issue will be Kazune Kawahara‘s Enkoi Debut which is the follow up to High School Debut.
  • The artist behind the manga versions of Blood+ and Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is starting two new mangas in April and May in Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine.
  • The manga series Twin Spica is getting a live-action TV drama on June 11th. The series will be broadcast on the NHK and actress Nanami Sakuraba is set to play the lead.
  • The next manga for Hellsing creator Kouta Hirano will be featured in the Shonengahosha‘s Young King Ours magazine and its title is Drifters. I’m curious if this will include Hirano’s trademark craziness or not.
  • Yuki Nakaji is set to launch a new manga called Jun-ai Labyrinth in the next issue of Hakusensha‘s LaLa magazine on April 24th.
  • A promotional video is up for an anime series based on Jewelpet, a toy line created by Sanrio and Sega. The series will premiere April 5th.

      Hopefully, Hirano’s next manga would be just as bloody awesome and crazy like Hellsing.

      Venire: I completely spaced it that it was April Fools. I could have had some real fun with that too. Maybe next year?

      kadian1364: Well, I’m sure someone is bummed however I can’t place myself in that group. Honesty hurts, I guess.

      WingZerozxt: Unfortunately, no.

      Kairu Ishimaru: It was a slow news week especially since the Spring season is just now starting.
