• 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.
  • Image at left courtesy of サツキ on pixiv (account needed to access)….and yes, I have been reading Toradora! recently


    1. If the FMA leak is confirmed(ish), this raises the chances that the Darker Than Black leak, which was in th esame document, will also be confirmed.
      Fuck yeah, more Black Lagoon!

    2. I’m really looking forward to the new announced anime, especially Kuroshitsuji and Kyou no Go no Ni and the new Full Metal Alchemist series, I assume that DTB 2 will also be confirmed in the next few days?

    3. Any1 seen Xam’d from PSN? I actually shelled out for the first episode and so far I like it( <3 BONES ). But $4 for a half-hour episode with a 24 hour limit, I think I’m gonna go broke.

    4. I thought the OVAs for Kyo no5no2 already covered most of the 1 volume manga. Are there more volumes I don’t know about?

      Like the ToraDora pic…. read up to the second volume only, but love it.

      Do we really need another FMA series.

    5. All this news is great, but I wish we got a bit more information about DTB2. Like say, if it’s coming out next spring or what. Or if production has even started. Digging all the 00 info though.

    6. Oooh! So let see here… Full Metal Alchemist, Tales of the Abyss, perhaps Darker than Black, and Toradora! Can’t wait! After those, perhaps Akane, Black Lagoon, and Ef. Of course, Gundum 00 is in there too.

    7. it surprise me that they wanna turn Kuroshitsuji series into an anime… should be interesting looking at how the manga goes ^^ looking forward to it
      obviously i can’t wait for ef ~ a tale of melodies ~
      its good to see Kyou no Go no Ni turning into a series rather than OVA all great news i guess ^^

    8. Oh if that’s the gundam 00 spoiler then it’s nothing new atm. I knew about that for quite some time.

      A 2nd DtB season would be great.

      But my real question is what a new FMA would be like? Are they somehow going to make it like the movie and ending of the first series never happend? So a “alternate retelling” that matches with the manga this time? I just don’t know how you’d do it now that they’ve got that movie out and everything.

      But I’m happy to see more FMA also, the manga story is way better, and Winry is <3! <3 I TELL YOU!!!!!

    9. [10:50] “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.”
      [10:51] i’ll watch it!
      [10:51] i still have the HCG set of that game i downloaded a long time ago =)
      [10:51] :D:D:D:D
      [10:52] Kugimiya Rie… count me in
      [10:52] lol
      [10:53] i am usually not a big fan of H-game-turning-into-anime
      [10:53] but i have the HCG set of this game
      [10:53] xDD
      [10:59] so who said downloading HCG sets is unethical? it’s great advertisement tool =P

    10. Can’t wait for Toradora and Index >,<, I anticipate these being the best shows for me next season. Hoping Kyou no Go no Ni and BL will be good as well. It’s just TOO much good stuff coming out next season, can’t wait to see your(Omni’s) Fall’s preview.

    11. wow!thank you for the great news ! looking forward to Umineko no Naku Koro ni,Kyou no Go no Ni and kuroshitsuji , i’m really happy , and it looks like black lagoon is a good anime ?_? never watched it ! guess i’ll give it try * if i find it that is * , FMA again YAY :DDD …

    12. when you said that for the best don’t look the official website of Gundam 00 that’s makes me really want to open the website ^_^;
      but i can control it

      Kuroshitsuji and tales of abyss is getting anime!!!!
      at last my hope already granted
      i’m so happy if FMA have a second season

    13. The FMA news shocked me the most!!! I love that anime sooo much I can watch it dubbed and be satisfied. I love how Ed sounds in the dub even if it does kind of remind me of a squeaky mouse sometimes….

    14. For those freaking out about the 00 spoilers let me say something:

      The “Meister name” are just codenames”

      So lets not jump to conclussions after all this ČspoilerŠ lockon is the BROTHER

      AAnd YAY FOR FMA :3

    15. Hey Omni! Are you by any chance going to blog Xam’d: Lost Memories? It’s available in the Playstation Network right now, and it’s one of the rare anime series the premiered BEFORE the Japanese.
