The official website for Visual Art's/Key and Aniplex's Angel Beats! television anime series has begun streaming its eighth promotional video on Saturday. The 156-second video contains the most actual anime footage of the project's promotional video streamed thus far. The P.A. Works anime studio (CANAAN, true tears) is producing the project. Seiji Kishi (Magikano, My Bride is a Mermaid, Tentai Senshi Sunred) is directing off a story created by Jun Maeda. Katsuzo Hirata (Cosplay Complex, Hand Maid May) is overseeing the animation and adapting the original character designs by Na-Ga. Satoki Iida (Magikano, My Bride is a Mermaid, Tentai Senshi Sunred) is the sound director. The series will premiere in Japan in April.
The website for the Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider The Movie: Chō Den-O Trilogy project opened last week with a 75-second teaser trailer. The fifth theatrical film project in the popular Kamen Rider Den-O franchise will be a trilogy of movies that will open one after another between May 22 and June 19 in Japan. A different lead character will star in each of the three movies. Manga creator Shotaro Ishinomori (Cyborg 009, Harmagedon, The Skull Man) created the original Kamen Rider television series and manga in 1971.
22-year-old Yūichi Nakamura (Wangan Midnight the Movie, Princess Princess D, Gokusen 2) will star in the trilogy's first film as Kamen Rider Zeronos. Episode Red will open on May 22. 18-year-old Dōri Sakurada (The Prince of Tennis musical's Ryōma) will play Kamen Rider New Den-O in Episode Blue, which will open on June 5. Kimito Totani will reprise his Kamen Rider Diend role when Episode Yellow opens on June 19.
