The official website for Aniplex's So-Ra-No-Wo-To television anime series began streaming a 132-second preview trailer for the anime's "Episode #7.5" side story last week. The episode will be included in the fourth So-Ra-No-Wo-To Blu-ray/DVD volume, which will ship in Japan on June 23. Crunchyroll simulcasted the anime's television episodes with English subtitles from January to March.
The Japanese publisher ASCII Media Works posted the first chapter of Angel Beats!: Heaven's Door, Yuriko Asami's prequel manga to the ongoing Angel Beats! anime series. The manga adapts the Angels Beats!: Track Zero novel, which was written by Angel Beats! creator Jun Maeda himself. The original novel was serialized in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine until its May issue last month, and the manga adaptation launched in the same issue. The anime premiered last month and has garnered relatively strong ratings since then, especially in Maeda's home city of Osaka.
