Random Musings – Da Capo II Anime And Other News

  • As I’m sure many of you have already heard, the big news for today is that Da Capo II is getting an anime. In an interview published in the June edition of Comptiq (the same magazine that Lucky Star is serialized in and pimps every week), producer tororo stated among other things that he wanted the anime to be as long as possible. There’s no set air-date yet, and I haven’t paid much attention to the game since it came out about a year ago, but I’m interested in seeing how this turns out.
  • In other upcoming anime news, Kamen no Maid Guy is also getting an anime, but I suspect that most people aren’t familiar with this series. I was first introduced to the manga almost two years ago when Dom wrote about it over at MegaTokyo. To use his description, it’s “the heartwarming story of a maid-loving rich old man, his almost-of-age granddaughter Naeka, and the musclebound, shark-toothed, mask-wearing freak of a maid he assigns to protect her until her 18th birthday.” It’s very fun to read, and I hope it translates well into anime form.
  • For those of you who are watching sola, it was announced on the official production blog that the show is going to be 15 episodes total, two of which will be DVD-exclusive. The one that is to be included with DVD 4 (on sale September 25th) is going to be “packed with the charms of the characters of sola,” but they are keeping secret about the one to be included with the final DVD 5 (on sale October 26th).
  • In seiyuu news, it seems that popular voice actress Horie Yui will be appearing on HEY!HEY!HEY! MUSIC CHAMP soon. Her appearance is being filmed this Thursday, so it might air next Monday. I mention this mainly because many of you may remember how Hirano Aya generated a lot of buzz last year from appearing on the same show.
