New Anime: Persona 4, C3, Hayate 3rd

Posted on: April 11, 2011

Three new anime shows were announced recently, in vastly different ways.

Persona 4 The Animation. The title pretty much says it all.

The most recent announcement, via a teaser website, was Persona 4 The Animation, based on the game of the same name. The cast stays the same as the game as well. Animation production will be done by AIC Asta (Sora no Otoshimono series), and the director is Kishi Seiji (Angel Beats!).

Cube, Cursed, and Curious.

Over the weekend, Starchild announced C3 (pronounced “see cube”), which stands for Cube, Cursed, and Curious. (This announcement was first done via their email magazine, then a website showed up the next day.) Based on a light novel by Minase Hazuki (currently at 11 volumes), it’s the heartwarming story of a boy and the cursed cube named Fear that takes the form of a little girl. Animation production will be by Silver Link, and direction by Oonuma Shin (both known for the BakaTest series).

The third season is coming! The third season is coming!

Finally, Hata Kenjiro, the manga artist of Hayate the Combat Butler, casually mentioned on his twitter account that the third season of the anime should be coming out after the movie, which is due out in the summer. Since this is the first semi-official notice of more Hayate anime, I think it’s safe to think that he’s got some inside info. We can wait in expectancy, can’t we?
