SHAFT Announces Prism Nana Project

news-shaft-announces-prism-nana-projectAfter their recent success with lolitastic-Nisemonogatari and Madoka Magica, SHAFT has announced that it is launching a new project called Prism Nana (Prism Nana Project). With the upcoming Comic Market 82 (Comiket), SHAFT will be presenting this new project at their booth (No. 642). Comiket 82 will be held at Tokyo Big Sight convention center from August 10th to August 12th, 2012.

This marks two recently announced anime series that are using Kantoku, a Japanese illustrator and graphic artist, for their character designs. The first one being Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko (The "HENTAI" Prince and the Stony Cat), which originated as a light novel, but is now being made into a full length TV anime series. As a personal fan of Kantoku's art, I sure hope he does more projects in the future.

Haganai is Green-lit for a 2nd Season

news-haganai-2nd-seasonFinally, after much anticipated waiting, fans are rejoicing for the 2nd season of Haganai (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai). Confirmed on the official Haganai Twitter account, production on the 2nd season has finally been green-lit. It will probably be at least a solid 6-months before we see the 2nd season airing on the Japanese broadcast channels, so it is still a ways off.

Seeing that Funimation and Niconico streamed the 1st season as it aired in Japan, we most likely will see a similar deal go down for the 2nd season.

For those who are not familiar with Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, it originated as a series of light novels that revolve around a transfer student named Kodaka and a girl named Yozora. The two decide to form a club called 'The Neighbors' Club', specifically designed for people who don't have very many friends.

First Official Trailer for Little Busters! Revealed

news-little-busters-anime-trailerA preview trailer for the new and upcoming Little Busters! anime has finally been revealed. I for one was personally skeptical when I heard that the production company for the anime was J.C. Staff. I really hope J.C. Staff can deliver a quality series that isn't easily forgotten. The trailer isn't too bad so hopefully this is a good sign to a solid production. They are attempting to fill the very large shoes that Kyoto Animation left in their wake.

The anime will premiere in October 2012.

Watch the trailer after the jump!

Toonami Returns

tomDespite the rise of streaming anime online, Cartoon Network announced last week that the popular Toonami segment would return this week on May 26. FUNimation has announced yesterday that Casshern Sins and Deadman Wonderland would be joining the Toonami block.

Many of Americans became aware of anime through Toonami. Unfortunately after 11 years, Toonami was cancelled in 2008. Hopefully this is a sign for more things to come with Toonami back.
