Like the original anime DVD that shipped in December, the new two-volume original video anime series will adapt Masahiro Itosugi's Aki Sora "line-crossing" manga. The first volume will ship in Japan on July 30.
The Kadokawa Anime Channel on the YouTube site began streaming a one-minute promotional video for The Future Diary (Mirai Nikki) premium anime DVD on Friday. The DVD will ship with the limited edition of Sakae Esuno's 11th manga volume in September. Tokyopop shipped the sixth manga volume in North America this month.
The official website for the Mazinkaizer SKL anime has revamped itself with its first 15-second promotional video, staff listings, character profiles, and a blog on Friday. The new project is billed as the return of the MazinKaiser anime franchise, which is itself a spinoff from Go Nagai's classic super robot manga and anime series, Mazinger Z. Director Jun Kawagoe (New Getter Robo) and designers Takeshi Itou (Cybuster), Hiroshi Ogawa (Great Dangaioh), and Munetaka Abe (Kotetsushin Jeeg animation director) are working on the new anime. Kazuya Hoshi is serializing a Mazinkaizer SKL Versus manga on the Shū 2 Comic Gekkin site from Bandai Visual's Emotion video production subsidiary.
