Both TV anime to launch this fall with songs by Hitomi Yoshida, Ali Project

Advance footage of the Sora no Otoshimono television anime series is now streaming on the Youtube website in the form of a three-minute promotional trailer video. The anime adapts Suu Minazuki's manga about Tomoki Sakurai (Souichiro Hoshi), an ordinary middle school boy whose motto is "Peace is the #1 priority." However, a strange girl often appears in his dream to ask for his help — only he cannot remember her face when he wakes up. Then, his life gets more complicated when an unidentified mysterious animal (UMA) falls out of the skies. The "animal" turns out to be Ikaros (Saori Hayami), an angel.

Hitomi Yoshida sings the "Ring My Bell" opening theme song with a vocal and chorus unit without a name; Columbia Music Entertainment is running a contest to name the unit.

The official website for the Tatakau Shisho - The Book of Bantorra anime series has launched with a promotional video. (In the linked page, select the first option in the lefthand menu.) The website also unveiled some production background art and character designs, and it announced that Ali Project is singing the opening theme song. The anime will premiere in Japan on October 2.

In Ishio Yamagata's original Tatakau Shisho series of light novels (pictured at left), all the dead people of the world have been turned into "books" stored in the Bantorra library. A boy named Koria Tonisu has had his memories erased and his chest embedded with a bomb. He is sent to kill Hamyuttsu Meseta, the world's most powerful armed librarian. However, he falls in love at first sight with this beautiful woman in charge of the "books," and he gets enveloped in the great war over the library.
