After nearly a one-month hiatus because of the new season, I’m back to doing Daily Doses. This particular post is a bit of a backlog post for the big items from the past few weeks.
If you watched the first Gundam 00 series and haven’t yet been spoiled about a certain something, I urge you NOT to go to the official site. I made the mistake of doing so after I saw the commercial that aired after this weekend’s episode of CODE GEASS, and I got spoiled when I checked out the details on the list of Mobile Suits.
New Anime Announcements (list almost entirely courtesy of MOON PHASE)
BLACK LAGOON is getting a third series.
Kyou no Go no Ni is also getting a television anime (instead of more OVAs).
ef – a tale of melodies anime has been announced for this Fall season.
Umineko no Naku Koro ni is getting an anime.
Shounen manga Kuroshitsuji is getting an anime.
Mystery/supernatural novel series Mouryou no Hako is getting an anime that’ll be produced by Madhouse and will have character designs done by CLAMP.
Love adventure game Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka will be getting an anime this Fall. This series is going to have a truckload of voice talent, including the likes of Hirano Aya, Kugimiya Rie, Inoue Marina, and Tanaka Rie.
The Tales of the Abyss anime adaptation will air this Fall on MBS, meaning it has a good chance of taking Macross F’s Thursday timeslot since Gundam 00 is likely replacing CODE GEASS R2.
The White Album anime adaptation has a website now with news that the series will start January of 2009. It will feature Hirano Aya and Mizuki Nana in two of the lead roles.
And finally, in the aftermath of the leaked BONES document incident, MOON PHASE confirms that he got word a while ago that there is indeed a new Full Metal Alchemist series in the works – an original manga version – likely to be officially announced at the end of the year.
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.
