The official website for the Heartcatch Precure! magical girl television anime series has revamped itself with a 30-second preview video of the first episode, "Watashi, Kawarimasu! Kawatte Misemasu!!" The anime will premiere in Japan this Sunday. Heartcatch Precure! will be the seventh television series in the long-running Precure "school action fantasy" franchise.
Tatsuya Nagamine (Beet the Vandel Buster, Yes! Precure 5: Kagami no Kuni no Miracle Daibōken!, Yes! Precure 5 GoGo! Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday) is directing the series. Nana Mizuki and Fumie Mizusawa will star as Cure Blossom and Cure Marine, respectively.
The preview website for the Senkō no Night Raid spy action television anime series is streaming its second and third 15-second "documentary commercials." The commercials show the staff creating the animation drawings and backgrounds for the anime. The series will premiere in Japan next spring.
The story is set in 1931 in Shanghai, where Japan has dispatched Sakurai Kikan, a special military spy organization that has since been buried in history. Jun Matsumoto (Persona -trinity soul-) is directing the animators at A-1 Pictures on this series. Yutaka Oomatsu (Blood+) is producing the series as the second work in the joint Anime no Chikara initiative between the TV Tokyo broadcasting station and the Aniplex anime production company.
