This is a news-packed Canned Dogs post: first Zepy spotted an announcement from Gonzo that the animation studio is closing down its official online store, Gonzo Style. Zepy also notes that once Saki ends, Gonzo has no anime series officially confirmed. That doesn't necessarily mean Gonzo is ceasing to be, of course-- they may have unannounced/undated projects, or they may go into a minor hibernation period where they bank some cash doing animation assistance instead of heading productions.
We'll see! In the meantime, word from Tadashi Kawashima, creator of the manga Alive: The Final Evolution (currently being released by Del Rey Manga and whose anime adaptation was announced back in June of '08) has confirmed the cancellation of the project, at least for the time being.
I really hope they find another studio to make that anime because I really enjoyed the manga, which I only read the first volume of. I'd also like it if Gonzo managed to pull out of its hole, and preferably with a series that isn't Strike Witches 2-- which, given the lack of news, starts to feel a bit lost in the ether as well.
Time will tell!
