The official blog for the Aki Sora ~Yume no Naka~ video anime has posted three half-minute promotional videos between Thursday and Saturday. (In the linked page, select the thumbnail images for the videos on the righthand side.) Like the original anime DVD that shipped in December, the new two-volume original video anime series will adapt Masahiro Itosugi's Aki Sora "line-crossing" manga. The first volume will ship in Japan on July 30.
The official website of the Asobi ni Iku yo! television anime series began streaming a 78-second promotional movie on Friday. Okina Kamino's original Asobi ni Iku yo! light novel series revolves around Kio Kakazu, an ordinary high school freshman living in Okinawa. A girl with cat ears appears before him during a memorial service for one of his family ancestors. The girl calls herself Eris and claims she is an alien. Before long, fanatical alien worshippers and a mysterious government agency are in hot pursuit of Eris, but Kio's childhood friend Manami — who wants to follow in her father's footsteps in the CIA — captures Eris. Kio finds himself having to protect Eris from everyone. The anime will premiere on July 10 in the Kansai area.
The official website of the Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin (Occult Academy) anime series began streaming its 11th 15-second television commercial on Wednesday. The new live-action commercial shows voice actors Takahiro Mizushima (Fumiaki Uchida) and Yōko Hikasa (Maya Kumashiro) recording their lines. The horror and school comedy story of Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin revolves around mystery and supernatural cases at Occult Academy, a fortress-like academy city. A-1 Pictures and Hiroyuki Kitakubo (Blood: The Last Vampire, Angel Cop, Robot Carnival) co-created Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin as TV Tokyo and Aniplex's third Anime no Chikara project. Tomohiko Ito (Death Note and Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro assistant director) is directing, and Seishi Minakami (Shigurui: Death Frenzy, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) is supervising the scripts. The television series will premiere on July 5.
