Random Musings – OtoBoku and Aquarion OVA Edition

A few quick things before I go to bed:

  • The big news of yesterday was that Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru was getting a second season according to Getchu. As excited as I was to hear this, I had my suspicions because I don’t consider Getchu to be a reliable source of news. Lo and behold, the site changed it’s news item a little earlier so that the second season part was no longer mentioned. It’s unclear at this point whether this was an incorrect report or if it was them jumping the gun and leaking something too early, so I wouldn’t get too excited yet in case this turns out not to be true.
  • Sousei no Aquarion’s OVA, Wings of Betrayal, has a website now and a release date of Friday, May 25th, 2007. The website features a promo that plays the original opening song by AKINO, but it’s noteworthy that the credits list her singing a new theme song called 「素足」 (Suashi – Barefoot).
  • For those of you following Pumpkin Scissors: I haven’t dropped the show, but recent circumstances have kept it at the bottom of my priority list in terms of catching up. I’ll try to get back up-to-date this weekend.

    Random Musings – Sousei no Aquarion ~Uragiri no Tsubasa~ and D.Gray‐man Anime!

    A few quick news items courtesy of MOON PHASE:

  • The official Aquarion Blog has updated with an image of what appears to be a teaser poster for the next season of Sousei no Aquarion, tentatively titled 「裏切りの翼」 (Uragiri no Tsubasa – Wings of Betrayal). The title of that post is “???@Media Factory Summer Festa 2006″ which is where I assume the poster was shown (you can find the website for the Summer Festa here). The teaser poster seems to show Apollo carrying Silvia with blacked out Vectors and an Aquarion in the background. Kind of hard to tell what the series is going to be about on just one poster though.
  • The popular manga series D.Gray‐man is getting an anime! It was announced that it will begin airing in October, which is the same month that the DEATH NOTE anime is supposed to start (as shown in that link).
  • The official website for the Bleach Movie, titled MEMORIES OF NOBODY, is open.

    Random Musings – Aquarion Season 2? Edition

  • The official Aquarion Blog features this image you see to the side from the Tokyo International Anime Fair with the words “2006 Autumn.” No word yet whether this means that a sequel is in production or if it’s an OVA or a game or something. I’d certainly love to see a second series, but I won’t get my hopes too high just yet. Thanks to Guido and BluWacky for the head’s-up.
  • This is semi-old news, but there’s going to be a Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid OVA coming out on May 26th. It’s supposed to be about a day in the life of Tessa, which would suggest that it’ll be a lot more light-hearted than TSR was.
  • The next set of Bleach opening and ending songs have been announced:
    OP4: 「TONIGHT,TONIGHT,TONIGHT」 by BEAT CRUSADERS
    ED7: 「HANABI」 by いきものがかり (ikimono-gakari)
