The official website for Isuna Hasekura and Jū Ayakura's Spice and Wolf fantasy light novels has begun streaming a new 46-second special movie for the upcoming Spice and Wolf II television anime series on Wednesday. The second season will premiere on July 8 in Japan. Yen Press acquired the original light novels and Keito Koume's manga adaptation for English translation last year, and Funimation announced in May that it acquired the first anime season.
Funimation has posted a trailer for its August 4 DVD release of the Fullmetal Alchemist Premium Collection on the YouTube website on Tuesday. The Premium OVA Collection features the "Seven Homunculi VS State Alchemists" short and three DVD shorts that shipped after the 2005 Fullmetal Alchemist movie: "Live Action," "Chibi Party," and "Kids."
The Yahoo! Movies Japan website has begun streaming a two-minute trailer for Air Doll, the live-action film based on Yoshiie Gōda's Kuki Ningyo manga from director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Maborosi, Nobody Knows, Distance). Both the film and the original manga recount the relationship between an inflatable sex doll (Korean actress Bae Doo-Na of The Host, Linda Linda Linda) and its owner, a video shop clerk (20th Century Boys, Ping Pong's Arata Furuta). The Cannes International Film Festival screened the film as part of its Official Selection last month.
