The Daily Dose

  • Upcoming fall series Kuroshitsuji has a website now, and on it is a 2-minute promo video. It requires Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player though, so I’ve uploaded it for those of you who have troubles getting it to play.
  • Nitroplus game Chaos;Head is getting an anime adaptation this fall, and they’ve opened a new website for it.
  • You may remember that last year around this time NTV aired a three-hour Death Note special that covered the entire L arc. Well they’ve announced that they’ll be airing another one on August 22nd, this time covering the Near/Mello arc.
  • Web series Axis Powers Hetalia is getting an anime adaptation.
  • Junjou Romantica 2 has been confirmed to start in October of this year.
  • The Queen’s Blade anime adaptation now has a website.
  • MOON PHASE reports that the Seto no Hanayome OVA will be released on November 28.
  • Nodame Cantabile Paris Chapter will start on October 9 in the Thursday night noitaminA timeslot.
  • The Macross Frontier Superlive was last night, and mainichi.jp has pictures and a report from the event. Pretty much all the songs from the series were performed, including Kanno Yoko herself playing a piano/ballad version of Triangular to Sakamoto Maaya‘s singing. Nakajima Megumi and May’n finished the concert by performing the new OP Lion together. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the new OP will premiere on this upcoming week’s episode.

      Yay for Nodame, but is it for the drama or anime? Anyone know?

    • July 28, 2008 at 6:04 amOmni

      As I mentioned last month, this is the anime adaptation. The drama version already went to Paris.

      @ avexmode

      Most likely anime since the live action was released already.

      How many series are going to be introduce since the amount of new websites popping up is quite substantial.

      Oh mannnnn I wish I could have went to the Macross concert.

      Fall season’s going to be hot, especially with Hetalia and Kuroshitsuji getting their anime adaptation, followed by great sequels.
      Thanks for uploading the trailor, I had problems viewing the promo yesterday and wasted so much time…

      man, i miss Seto no Hanayome. good laugh’s, an ova? hmmm?

    • July 28, 2008 at 7:52 amshurikens

      hope they have a season 2 of seto no hanayome ^^

    • July 28, 2008 at 8:22 amBrowniekat

      I’m happy there’s a Season 2 for Junjou Romantica cos I thought S1 ended abruptly.
      Aww, I can’t wait to watch Kuroshitsuji. I so loved the devilishly funny manga. Thx for putting up the trailer.

    • July 28, 2008 at 8:24 amk

      The seiyuu for Kuroshitsuji sound familiar…I hope they are who I think they are…

    • July 28, 2008 at 8:42 amNaakay

      I’m interested to see how they’re going to animate Chaos;Head, seeing as the visual novel had certain elements to it that can’t really be adapted to an anime. They’re pretty major in terms of game play and story as well so I hope it’ll turn out okay. I’m a huge fan of Nitro+ though so I’m eagerly waiting for it regardless.

      Other then that, Nodame and the Seto no Hanayome OVA are also things I’m looking forward to.

      Thank you for the daily dose. It sure brighten my day.

      I wish I could have went to the Macross Frontier Superlive T_T, although am I the only one thinking that Nakajima-san clothes were too flashy and sparkling, giving her the perfect loli look O.O . Oh well, May’n look stylish and cool as usual, black suits her well.

      Yay! Nodame is back.

    • July 28, 2008 at 12:19 pmTokki

      I can’t wait for Kuroshitsuji looks intresting,…when does it start airing?

    • July 28, 2008 at 2:02 pmW_ZERO

      Thanks for the news.

      Don’t have much to say about much of it, but the new website for Queen’s Blade has definitely piqued my interest.

    • July 29, 2008 at 12:37 amChaoz9

      Very off-topic and I don’t know if anyone else cares buuut, Gurren Lagann was aired on Sci-fi today… in English dub. Was kinda weird, but maybe it’s because of the different voices. Just wanted to say that~
