The New Slew of Anime

New anime news abounds, but let's start with a couple of updates on past announcements! First, Nodame Cantabile's third season is officially titled, and the title itself is news: Nodame Cantabile Finale. When we last left our heroes, they were in Paris, and there they remain for the time being.

Meanwhile, the next Shakugan no Shana anime will officially be an OVA, titled Shakugan no Shana S (presumably S for “special,” I'd say). It's due out October 23rd on both Blu Ray and DVD.

And then there's NEW new anime...Kuuchuu Buranko, a short story collection about a psychiatrist and his patients, who include a circus member who's having difficulty performing, will be made into an anime. Under the circus tent, you perverts. It's an award-winning collection, so this should be pretty cool for those of you who prefer your anime with a touch more class than your average moe stuff.

A special Yu-Gi-Oh! crossover OVA has been announced, says Nebs. Unconfirmed word is that it features the three different

lead characters in one show.

ANN notes that Tajomaru, a live-action film based on a short story featuring seven different people's takes on the murder of a samurai, is being developed into both manga AND anime.

Last but not least-- and this one's a few days old now, sorry for the delay – Baccano! author Ryougo Narita's series Durarara!!, which was already made into a manga already, is being made into an anime as well. The website's already launched, if you want a quick look.

Whew! That should keep you guys busy for a bit.

Kuuchuu Buranko looks to be right up my alley.  Lowbrow anime has it's place, but it's not the same as the classy dats for sure

Not sure how Nodame Cantabile's third series can consider itself a finale when the manga is still ongoing and its manga-ka is out on hiatus due to appendicitis.

Speaking of new series, has there been any post on the series just starting over in Japan this week?  I've searched on everything I can think of and can't find one.

You mean this http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/559/summer2009v3j.jpg ? Or do you want trailer ? Anything from the creator of Baccano! can't be bad. :)
