posted on by Egan Loo
The official website of the Towa no Quon film series began streaming the full trailer off NEC's BIGLOBE website on Thursday. The earlier television commercials for the DVD-bundled tickets and the teaser trailer are also available. The story follows a boy named Quon and others who suddenly wake up with supernatural powers. The anime studio BONES is producing the six-part film series as the last anime of Umanosuke Iida (Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Hellsing), the director who passed away last November. Takeshi Mori (Otaku no Video, Gunsmith Cats, Vandread) is serving as the "collaborative director" in Iida's place. The first film will open in Japan on June 18.
The official website for the Saiyuki Gaiden video anime series began streaming a 90-second promotional video for the second volume on Friday. The anime adapts Kazuya Minekura's manga of the same name, which ended in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine in 2009. The second of the three anime volumes will ship in Japan on June 24.
