Magical Heart Kokoro-chan (School Days OVA) Coming Soon

This was a bit of odd news today: School Days is getting a Kokoro-chan OVA DVD to be released next year. This was originally an April Fool’s Day project (see this Youtube video) by 0verflow, and from that clip alone, I was on the floor laughing. I had expected the School Days series to be done for now unless they were planning on animating Summer Days, but I’m very intrigued by this, especially if they’re going to be using all the characters in a magical girl setting. The release date is in late March 2008 (right before April Fool’s Day), and MOON PHASE is reporting that it’ll be out March 26th, though Sofmap’s listing indicates a release on the 28th. In any case, it might be something to look forward to.

Random Musings – So Much For School Days

For those of you waiting to see the final episode of School Days, some bad news: TV Kanagawa suddenly decided not to air it and replaced it with a nature/scenery program instead. This appears to have been without any prior announcement, so speculation is rampant right now about what really happened. Some people, including MOON PHASE, are suggesting that it might have something to do with how a girl killed her father with an axe yesterday. If true, that would mean that the School Days finale was indeed very bloody.

I’m really disappointed at this point, but there’s really no choice but to wait until tomorrow to see if Chiba TV or TV Aichi air it. Both still list School Days in their schedule, however there’s no telling what will happen. If they don’t air it, then there’s technically still Teletama on Thursday and TV Osaka on Friday (though the latter is very unlikely due to its past record). For now, this probably means that I move the schedule around so that I blog Claymore and Romeo X Juliet today, and Bleach and School Days tomorrow, assuming it airs. Also, I’m still working on the fall preview, but it’s coming slowly because of schoolwork and job-related stuff. Hopefully it’ll be done by sometime next week.

Edit: If you’re curious or bored and have a Nico Nico account, you can now watch the full 28 minutes of scenery.
2nd Edit: Chiba TV, TV Aichi, and Teletama have all taken the show off their schedules.
3rd Edit: Mainichi News now has an article confirming that this was indeed because of the axe murder and that the airings on at least TV Kanagawa, Chiba TV, and TV Aichi have been postponed. It also confirms that there is a scene of violence done by a high school girl in the episode and that they changed the color of blood from red to black, but still decided not to air it. One possible ray of hope lies with AT-X, which the article claims is still considering showing the finale on September 27th since they do R-15 airings.
