I'm waiting for the second season of Jormungand that wraps up the series here is a clip the new material starts at about the half way point.

Opening for the first series: http://www.youtube.co...­


Little surprised that Seitokai no Ichizon is getting a second season it was a flop in Japan and never made it here stateside, guess Japan is desperate for ideas or because it could be made on the cheap.

Your post is a little misleading. Their is no live action movie of Blue Exorcist those pictures are from the stage play that was performed last May for one week only.

But the series will have a Animated Movie this December to be released in theaters in Japan.

The article I came across was used loosely as "Live Act". It's unfortunate it didn't mean live action. That would've been cool if there was one. I came across the stage play's video http://animeshinbun.c...­

Spotlight: Code Geass
Crunchyroll



A collaboration between manga-ka superstars CLAMP and animation studio Sunrise of Gundam fame, Code Geass featured an all-star cast and slick animation with giant robot battles and teenagers and school uniforms. Spanning 2 seasons, several OVA, multiple manga series, and spawning a truckload of merchandise that is still being churned out to this day, it's probably safe to say that Code Geass is one of the most popular anime that has been created in the last few years.

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World)



Five children living in the future are the protagonists. The story begins when they are 12 years old and starting their lives at an advanced school to learn the ‘cursed power’ of telekinesis.

The Darkness in the Lychee Light Club



Lychee Light Club is based off of a manga by Usamaru Furuya, which in turn is based off of a Tokyo Grand Guignol stage production of the same name. The anime shorts are vastly different from the manga, which it has an 18+ rating. While the original manga is incredibly dark and filled with violence and gore scenes, the anime is much more light-hearted and comedic. The characters are drawn in a super-deformed style, which adds to the charm, and the animations are simple but effective.

TV interviewer Genya Tachibana has tracked down its most famous star, Chiyoko Fujiwara, who has been a recluse since she left acting some 30 years ago. Tachibana delivers a key to her, and it causes her to reflect on her career; as she's telling the story, Tachibana and Kyoji Ida, his long-suffering cameraman are drawn in. The key was given to her as a teenager by a painter and revolutionary that she helped to escape the police. She becomes an actress because it will make it possible to track him down, and she spends the next several decades acting out that search in various genres and eras.[
