Random Musings – OtoBoku and Aquarion OVA Edition

A few quick things before I go to bed:

  • The big news of yesterday was that Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru was getting a second season according to Getchu. As excited as I was to hear this, I had my suspicions because I don’t consider Getchu to be a reliable source of news. Lo and behold, the site changed it’s news item a little earlier so that the second season part was no longer mentioned. It’s unclear at this point whether this was an incorrect report or if it was them jumping the gun and leaking something too early, so I wouldn’t get too excited yet in case this turns out not to be true.
  • Sousei no Aquarion’s OVA, Wings of Betrayal, has a website now and a release date of Friday, May 25th, 2007. The website features a promo that plays the original opening song by AKINO, but it’s noteworthy that the credits list her singing a new theme song called 「素足」 (Suashi – Barefoot).
  • For those of you following Pumpkin Scissors: I haven’t dropped the show, but recent circumstances have kept it at the bottom of my priority list in terms of catching up. I’ll try to get back up-to-date this weekend.

    Random Musings – The Big Winter Break II Edition

    Come this time of year, most anime series take a week or two break (last year was no different). To clear up any lingering schedule uncertainties that you may have, here is a table of what’s airing and what’s not for shows that I’m currently blogging.

    Series This Week (12/25 to 12/31) Next Week (1/1 to 1/7) Following Week (1/8 to 1/14)
    Pumpkin Scissors Episode 13 on Monday No Episode Episode 14 on Monday
    D.Gray-man Episode 13 on Tuesday No Episode Episode 14 on Tuesday
    DEATH NOTE Episode 12 on Tuesday No Episode Episode 13 on Tuesday
    Negima!? Episode 13 on Wednesday Episode 14 on Thursday Episode 15 on Wednesday
    Bleach No Episode Episode 109 on Thursday Episode 110 on Wednesday
    Soukou no Strain No Episode No Episode Episode 10 on Wednesday
    Kanon Episode 13 on Thursday Episode 14 on Thursday Episode 15 on Thursday
    CODE GEASS No Episode Episode 12 on Thursday Episode 13 on Thursday
    Ayakashi Ayashi No Episode Episode 13 on Saturday Episode 14 on Saturday

    Please make particular note that Negima!? and Bleach will be airing episodes on Thursday, January 4th. They are being preempted from their normal Wednesday spots on January 3rd by an Enka New Year’s Special and then the Japan vs. Mexico Boxing Grand Prix. Unfortunately, this means that that particular Thursday will be completely hellish for me since it’ll be four shows on one day (maybe even five if I end up watching Saint October). And on that note, you can probably expect the Winter 2007 Shows Preview to go up sometime later this week.
