This year's 25th issues of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine and Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine are announcing on Wednesday that the previously revealed Hayate the Combat Butler and Negima films will be double-billed together on August 27. The magazines are also announcing the full titles of both films: Hayate the Combat Butler! Heaven Is a Place on Earth and Negima! Magister Negi Magi: Anime Final.
Although the original manga for these two films run in different magazines from different publishers, TV Tokyo aired the television anime adaptations of both. The two magazines collaborated before on a Conan & Kindaichi magazine, a joint cover illustraton with Hajime no Ippo and Detective Conan to mark the magazines' shared 50th anniversary, and the swapping of chapters from Kôji Kumeta's Sayonara Zetsubō Sensei and Katteni Kaizō manga.
Websites for both movies are now available:
Update: More background information added.
Update 2: Website links added.
