The official page for the second Denpa teki na Kanojo anime DVD began streaming a promotional video last week. In Kentarō Katayama's original Denpa teki na Kanojo light novels, the story centers on a belligerent delinquent named Jū Jūzawa and a strange girl named Ame Ochibana who suddenly vows complete loyalty to him. "Denpa teki na Kanojo" or literally, "electromagnetic girlfriend," refers to the denpa-kei sub-genre of stories that imply bizarre behaviors are caused by electromagnetic waves. The second anime DVD, "Kōfuku Game," will ship with the fourth volume of the Kurenai manga on December 12. Katayama and illustrator Yamato Yamamoto created both the Denpa teki na Kanojo light novels and the Kure-nai light novels, which were adapted into manga and later into a television anime series.
The Thumbnail dōjin (self-published) unit has posted a new 52-second still "picture drama" trailer for the Kōtetsu no Vendetta (Iron Vendetta) military robot anime project on the Nico Nico Douga video-streaming website. (Viewers must first register in Japanese.) According the production staff's Monday blog entry, Ami Koshimizu will play the heroine, Rain Yashima. The project began with another still-picture short, which eventually evolved into a partially animated pilot film. The dōjin (self-published) creators sold a preview DVD at Tokyo's Comic Market 75 convention last December, and will distribute a new release at this summer's Comic Market 76. Thumbnail announced in May that the project's first full anime episode has been green-lit.
