The single-episode OVA Yurumates wa? is the second anime adaptation of saxyun’s 4-koma gag comedy manga about Yurume, an 18-year-old rounin – a high school graduate who has yet to be accepted into college. Yurume moves to the outskirts of Tokyo to study for the next entrance exams. She ends up living in Maison du Wish, an apartment complex full of aimless “veteran rounin” who have been out of school for years.

The three-episode OVA Saiyuuki Gaiden is created by studio Anpro, based on a fantasy / adventure manga by Kazuya Minekura that serves as a prequel to the Saiyuuki series, by the same author. The story takes place in Heaven, 500 years before the first Saiyuuki series. The plot is based around that series’ four main characters in their past lives, and details exactly what it was they did to get thrown out of heaven.

The TV anime series Nichijou is adapted by Kyoto Animation (Suzumiya Haruhi, Lucky Star, K-ON!), based on Keiichi Arawi’s gag comedy manga of the same title. A title which, despite its meaning of “everyday life”, packs a series of insane happenings that are anything but ordinary. The setting is a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer, or a robot’s arm hide a rollcake. Although there are still normal stories, like making a card castle or taking a test you didn’t study for.

The two-episode OVA Senjou no Valkyria 3: Dare ga Tame no Juusou is created by studio A-1 Pictures, and follows the release of Sega’s PSP game sequel Valkyria Chronicles 3: Unrecorded Chronicles. The game is once again set in a war-torn Gallia from an alternate history Europe in 1935, but this time tells a different story, about the Gallian Army squad 422, also known as the Nameless (since all its members are referred to by number, rather than by name).

The 3D CG anime series Appleseed XIII is created by Jinni’s Animation Studios, in cooperation with Production I.G, as a new retelling of Masamune Shirow’s manga (as opposed to being a sequel to the two earlier anime films). Following a world war that killed half the world’s population, the city-nation of Olympus stands as a beacon of hope in a world of chaos and conflict. The utopian metropolis is governed by Gaia, a vast artificial intelligence, and administered by genetically engineered humanoids known as Bioroids. Although Olympus seems like a peaceful city on the surface, racial (human vs. bioroids vs. cyborgs), religious, and political conflicts lurk underneath – threatening to overturn the delicately balanced “peace”. Security threats such as terrorists and anti-government criminals abound, so the use of force becomes a necessary evil even in this so-called “utopia”. Deunan, a young female warrior, and Briareos, a veteran cyborg-soldier, are both partners and lovers, as well as members of ES.W.A.T., the elite special forces serving Olympus. They are deployed wherever trouble strikes. Conspiracy, terrorism, deadly military weapons technology, greedy corporations, and power-hungry politicians – these are just some of the threats that Deunan and Briareos must contend with as they fight to protect Olympus and save mankind from plunging into another war.

A trailer for today’s starting TV anime series Oniichan Konazen – as in Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne!! (I Don’t Like You at All, Big Brother!). The anime is adapted by studio Zexcs, based on Kouichi Kusano’s ecchi / comedy manga about the “slightly dangerous” relationship between Shuusuke – a boy who likes risque books and DVDs – and his younger sister Nao, who has developed a rather strong brother complex and is determined to make him see her as a woman. So determined, that she goes as far as invading his room to throw away all his non-incest related porn. But as she’s looking for his porno stash, she finds a photo album… and she’s not in any of his childhood pictures. What is going on?
