The Daily Dose

  • Unless there’s some big news, I likely won’t be posting any Daily Doses over the next few days so that I can work on the Summer 2008 Preview instead. There’s only half as many new shows as the spring, but it still takes a lot of time to research and write up.
  • ALIVE Saishuu Shinkateki Shounen will be getting an anime.
  • Dengeki Online has an interview with the main cast of the upcoming third season of Zero no Tsukaima. Supposedly the themes for this time around are “love” and “ero”.
  • The official Macross Frontier website has uploaded a preview of the upcoming ALL THAT VF short I mentioned a couple of days ago.
  • TV Asahi has opened their website for the new Someday’s Dreamers anime starting in July. As MOON PHASE notes though, both it and the official site are still rather sparse.
  • ZAKZAK has some screenshots of the upcoming second Mai-Otome S.ifr episode, as well as an post-recording interview with the cast.
  • Naruto Shippuuden‘s new ending theme starting in July will be NICO Touches the WallsBroken Youth.
  • 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.

      3rd seaon ZnT – it only can get better I guess..
      And jep, InuYasha ended lol.

      Hey hey, the ending of Inuyasha is very nice! Kagome goes back to Inuyasha’s world and get married… Well, Inuyasha sure deserves that! ^^

      ‘ALIVE Saishuu Shinkateki Shounen will be getting an anime.’

      now my day is good

    • June 18, 2008 at 11:17 amtPhan

      Well i like the love theme of ZnT but if they are going to make it more of a fanservice anime man thats just going to ruin it. ZnT s1 was great with little fanservice, s2 was also great with an increase in fanservice but not over the top. hopefully s3 doesnt go over the top with fanservice

    • June 18, 2008 at 12:00 pmgame8910

      ugh, if ZnT is planning on being like S2 or even more fanservice themed, it already epic failed in my books….but I guess i’ll have to see it first

      Alive anime YAYYYYYY! In those Mai-Otome S.ifr screen shots, if that guy is supposed to be arika’s dad she looks more like her dad than her mother.

      omg! ALIVE!!! i cannot wait XDD!!

    • June 18, 2008 at 1:11 pmEirias

      Nia… Now I’m going to be sad.

    • June 18, 2008 at 1:21 pmPras

      INuyasha finally ended,though not in a way i expected.
      Hope they make a “filler-less” anime soon

    • June 18, 2008 at 4:15 pmNette

      awww… love the pic. :].

      yessss!! alive anime!! 8D!!

    • June 18, 2008 at 4:51 pmFlareKnight

      I have little faith in ZnT season 3 turning out well at all. After finding out how badly they handled the novels this can’t end well. Plus you toss in the themes “love” and “ero” and there is no good coming from this.

      Finally got to see Inuyasha end with some epilogue. Been a long trip to be sure.

    • June 18, 2008 at 5:27 pmHoshi

      Like the others… THANK GOD THERE WILL BE an ALIVE ANIME. :P

      Awesome. That’s one of the major things I’ve made use of in deciding what to watch for the last several seasons.

      Informative as always kudos to you omni

    • June 19, 2008 at 12:00 amKadian1364

      Hey Omni, I was wondering if you’d thought about getting some others’ opinions to include in the “Summer 2008 Preview”. Maybe Divine or Natrone even can say a bit about what they’ve seen/liked?

    • June 19, 2008 at 12:26 pmOjsinnerz

      For the third ZnT, What’s the difference, lol? And YES, INUYASHA HAS ENDED,

    • June 19, 2008 at 9:51 pmtonbo

      Look forward to seeing the summer preview!

    • June 20, 2008 at 8:49 pmPandora

      Ohh, I hadn’t heard anything about ALIVE being given an anime adaptation. Fantastic!

      Good luck with your Summer preview. I always make a point to stop in and check out your season previews, they really are very helpful in deciding exactly what to watch. I appreciate (and am sure many others are as well) your hard work. =)
