The release date of the second live-action film based on of Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys suspense manga has been set for January 31, while the third movie will open in the fall of 2009. Airi Taira was selected out of 3,000 candidates to play the main character Kenji's niece Kanna. Yūsuke Santamaria will play Kenji's classmate Sadakiyo, Naohito Fujiki will play Chōno, Arata Furuta will play Mio Haruna, and Eiko Koike will play Takasu.
Madhouse and Disney have confirmed that their Japan-based Stitch! spinoff from the Lilo & Stitch film franchise will premiere on October 8 at 7:26 p.m on TV Tokyo and its related affiliates. That timeslot happens to be held by the Bleach television anime series. No announcement has been made on the fate of the Bleach anime after October.
The official Japanese website for the Kiss×sis anime project has launched. The website has announced that the project will be an original animation DVD (OAD) that will be bundled with the third volume of Bow Ditama's original manga on December 22. The Feel animation production group will oversee the adaptation of the story about the "forbidden" love between a boy and two stepsisters.
Update: The October 8 premiere of Stitch! will air at an earlier 7:00 p.m. time to accommodate the first two episodes, back-to-back. Thanks, ChibiGoku.
