On Sunday, the YouTube channel of Bandai Visual's Lantis label began streaming a 235-second preview video for BiBi, a mini unit within the Love Live! School idol project that is composed of Eri Ayase (as voiced by Yoshino Nanjō), Maki Nishikino (Pile), and Niko Yazawa (Sora Tokui). Love Live! comes from the anime studio Sunrise, Lantis, and ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine. BiBi's debut single "Diamond Princess no Yūutsu" will go on sale in Japan on June 22.
Also on Sunday, the YouYube channel for Kei and Gonzo's Copihan anime project began streaming the 85-second promotional video. The video is a high-quality version of the video that announced the 2011 anime at last week's Machi Asobi event. The slapstick school comedy is set in Tokyo in 2034. Hatsune Miku illustrator Kei has been drawing the manga version in Jive's Monthly Comic Rush magazine since the January 2011 issue, which shipped last November. A low-quality test upload of the same video appeared on the Nico Nico Douga website earlier this month.
Last week, the videogame company Capcom began streaming a video comment from actor Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen's Noda, NANA's Nobu, Akihabara @ DEEP's Page), the star of Takashi Miike's live-action adaptation of CAPCOM's Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban) videogame franchise. The film will open in Japan early next spring.
