The official website for the television anime adaptation of Tomoko Ninomiya's Nodame Cantabile manga has posted an 30-second advance preview video for the third and final anime series, Nodame Cantabile: Finale. (In the linked page, select the red starburst icon in the top left corner which is labeled, "『フィナーレ』先行予告はコチラ!!") The story centers on two music prodigies who find themselves on parallel paths in Japan and later Europe.
A Nodame Cantabile side story manga series will launch in the 24th issue of Kodansha's biweekly Kiss magazine in December. The main Nodame Cantabile manga series just ended last Saturday. The first of two live action Nodame Cantabile Saishū Gakushō (Nodame Cantabile: The Final Movement) films will open in Japan on December 19, and the final television anime series will premiere in January. Del Rey will publish the 15th volume of the manga in North America next month.
The Starchild anime label has posted a 75-second promotional video for the anime adaptation of Yuto's Hanamaru Kindergarten slice-of-life comedy manga. (In the linked page, select the blinking icon in the top right corner which is labeled, "PVはこちら!") The story centers on three kindergartners and their teachers. As previously announced, director Seiji Mizushima (first Fullmetal Alchemist anime, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) will be working with the veteran production studio Gainax (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) on the project.
