ANN began streaming the first eight English-dubbed minutes from Bandai Entertainment's release of the third Mobile Suit Gundam UC episode on Tuesday. The third episode will be available for on-demand streaming on March 5, followed by the Blu-ray Disc release on April 7.
The website Gigazine also began streaming the first part of the "Weekly Shimakō Daikaijū Shima Kosaku no Maki" pilot anime movie on Tuesday. The Flash anime studio DLE (Eagle Talon) is adapting Kenshi Hirokane's long-running Shima Kōsaku business manga franchise for an April premiere on the NTV network. In the pilot movie, the titular business executive Kōsaku Shima becomes a giant overshadowing Tokyo. (The original manga takes a more serious tone than the anime, which Kodansha's Weekly Morning magazine describes as "somewhat unusual.") The second part of the pilot movie will be posted next Month.
The Shima Kōsaku anime series will be one of five titles in NTV's new YuruAni? program. The other four manga titles that DLE is animating for YuruAni? are Haguki's Hato no Oyomesan gag manga, Yukari Takinami's Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan four-panel manga, Masayuki Kitamichi's Pū-Neko four-panel manga, and Hidekichi Matsumoto's Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei four-panel supernatural comedy manga.
