Keeping MAL up to date with some of the latest anime announcements we now have...

Jigouku Shoujo Season 3
A third series of the Hell Girl supernatural horror anime has been greenlit for production in Japan. The anime's main story revolves around a "Hell Girl" that a person can summon, via a website, to condemn another human to Hell. However the price for the service is the summoner's own soul — condemned to Hell as well.

Blade of the Immortal
The ever popular seinen manga Blade of the Immortal. No ANN article on this but according to Asuki's New Annouced Anime thread it has been confirmed on Moon Phase.

Telepathy Shoujo Ran
The Japanese public television network NHK-Educational will be airing an anime adaptation of the Telepathy Shōjo Ran Jiken Note (The Case Notes of the Telepathy Girl Ran) children's novel series by Atsuko Asano (The Comedy Team) in the spring of 2008. The novels combine coming-of-age stories with supernatural mysteries and center around Ran, a spirited middle-school girl who happens to have extra-sensory perception. She discovers this ability when she meets a transfer student named Midori, a girl who has the same power. Before long, the two girls join Rui (Ran's childhood friend and potential boyfriend who also has a power) and start investigating mystery cases with their abilities.

Himitsu -Top Secret
Hakusensha's Melody manga magazine has announced that Reiko Shimizu's Himitsu - Top Secret philosophical science fiction suspense manga will be animated for a Spring 2008 television broadcast. Even though Shimizu has been publishing manga for over 25 years and have created such acclaimed works as Moon Child and Kaguya Hime, Himitsu - Top Secret will be the first manga of hers to be animated. Since Melody is a bimonthly magazine, Shimizu has only compiled three volumes of this manga so far since she started in 1999.

Maybe I'm just a retard, but I didn't notice it was a spoiler til y'all pointed out it was a spoiler. THANKS GUYS >:(

I can't wait for Hell Girl 3. Better finish the second season soon!

Himitsu - Top Secret also seems interesting. I haven't read the manga, but since I'm into philosophical anime these days, I'm looking forward to the anime.

I'm very pleased to see that Jigoku Shoujo gets a third season...

Thank God shows with individual storylines for almost every episodes are so easy to make a sequel of



Now all I need is a second season of Mushishi

the swastika on manji's back is a left facing swastika while the nazi symbol is a right facing swastika...

quite frankly they aren't the same things in principles or motives so I don't see a need to censor it.

anyways... I'm very worried about the blade of the immortal anime. feels like it could just turn out to be a claymore 2.0.

Jigoku Shoujo 3? Yes please. Although with the end of season two...

Blade of the Immortal! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! :D

I think they'll keep the swastika, and the subbers will just add cultural notes to the beginning of each episode, like Dark Horse did with the manga.

maybe they'll just alter it like what they did with Naruto. the symbol on Neji's forehead was changed into an X in the US version.

I don't think Japan minds swastika much. Maybe in the US version they'd remove it.

I just hope BotI gets a good production team...

Depends on what time it will air.
