The final episode of “Gyu!” airs next weekend. The latest episode (51) ended with yet another cliffhanger of the Black Crystal King — the original source of all dark powers that once tried to threaten and destroy the Wonder Planet; as well as possess and control Bright in the first series. Though the question is, will there be a third series after this? Or is this really the end to one of the most successful modern mahou shoujo franchises out there… Bibin-sama! (；´Д｀)
Promotional videos from “Tokyo Int’l Anime Fair” of Kara no Kyoukai, Mononoke, Claymore, Prism Ark, Doujin Work, plus plenty more found after the jump…
As you all know, this year’s “Tokyo International Anime Fair, Japan’s largest animation trade show event, is in full swing; with a variety of news reports and major announcements coming out and being covered by the most reliable sources on the net. Toei/Aniplex are also there reserving their spot for its promotional “Powerpuff Girls Z” campaign — celebrating the series’ Cartoon Network JP premiere (April 1st) and DVD releases…
The PS2 port of “Fate/stay night” titled “[Realta Nua]”, manufactured by Kadokawa Shoten Publishing, comes out April 19th. The “Extra Edition” set includes two bonuses: the PSP game “Tobidase! Trouble Hanafuda Douchuuki” and a Saber Bust (9,240 Yen).
Yesterday Taito released their second “Rozen Maiden” game titled “Gebetgarten” (Prayer Garden) for the PS2. Two editions were made available: regular (7140 yen) and limited (9240 yen). The limited edition copy included this exquisitely designed pocket watch displaying a silhouette of the first Rozen Maiden, Suigintou — she and Barasuishou also replace the Shinku-cover that’s seen on the regular copy. The game is a mix of both digital novel sequences and CG 3D battle — so that’s a bit of an improvement from their last “Duellwalzer” release. A Detective Kunkun OVA special is also available on the disc…
The English flyer you see above was made available at the Kadokawa Pictures booth over at the Tokyo International Anime Fair — which goes on all weekend long. The flyer clearly states of a “30-minute x 24 episode” series. The fact that it is written in English may suggest that Kadokawa Pictures is aiming for a quick international license agreement — possibly have it license under the name “Kadokawa Pictures USA” while being distributed by another well-known company; as they have done in the past with “FMP! TSR”, “Haruhi”, and “The Third”… However nothing has been made official as of yet.
“Lucky☆Star” begins April 8th on Chiba TV — directed by Yamamoto Hiroshi…
