Weekend News Catch-up: New Anime Everywhere

Posted on: December 7, 2009

The Code Geass front page image, this is for the holiday event and not the new project.

Warning: new Code Geass may not contain any of these characters.

This weekend, I spent my time testing out new combos in Baldr Sky Dive2 and watching football. The anime world, however, was busy trying to make up for a relatively light anime slate in this winter season by announcing 2010 anime in bunches.

This weekend brought us a bunch of announcements:

– A new Code Geass multimedia project, crossing anime, manga, music, and more.
Yojou-han Shinwa Taikei, an adaptation of a college-life novel by Morimi Tomihiko.
Giant Killing, a soccer manga getting an anime adaptation in time for the World Cup.
Yondemasu, Azazel-san, a story about a magical detective and the demons he enlists to solve mysteries.
Shinrei Tantei Yakumo, another supernatural detective story, with ghosts instead of demons.
Starry Sky, yet another “turn inanimate objects into impossibly pretty boys” project a la Hetalia and Miracle Train.
Moyashimon, the live action drama (yes, really).

Most of these won’t come around until Summer 2010 at least, with a few of these projects designated for Fall 2010, so barely any details are out about these projects. The Code Geass announcement is a bit more immediate and contains more details than the rest of these, so I’ll cover it later today.
