The Macross Frontier website has updated with information about the Ranka Lee/Nakajima Megumi mini-live occurring this weekend at the Odaiba VenusFort. The website also now features a video showing Ranka’s moves while singing her debut song, Seikan Hikou.
On the topic of Macross music (mainly because this news came out before I started doing Daily Doses, and I’ve neglected to mention it till now), the second OP starting in July will be the song Lion, performed by both Nakajima Megumi and Nakabayashi May, and the new ED will be Sheryl Nome/Nakabayashi May’s Northern Cross.
Famitsu has a preview of Bounen no Xamdou, the upcoming BONES series. Still no official word on which season it’ll be airing in, though I would guess this Fall since it’s not going to be Summer.
Popular singer Ayaka‘s song Konya mo Hoshi ni Dakarete will be used as the theme song to the upcoming Oshii Mamoru movie, The Sky Crawlers.
The website for the upcoming Sekirei series has updated with airdates, a new 3-minute trailer (requires Internet Explorer), and the advance screenings times at various Comic Toranoana shops across Japan on June 28th. Sekirei is now set to premiere on TOKYO MX on Wednesday, July 2nd.
The Hidamari Sketch x 365 website has updated with airdates and opening/ending song previews. Hidamari Sketch x 365 is set to premiere on TV Tokyo on Thursday, July 3rd.
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.
