06/16 Flag - Drama involving a female war photographer. Directed by Ryousuke Takahashi.

This is on pay-per-view only, so maybe we'll never see it.

"In 20xx, a civil war broke out in a small country in Asia is getting hard in spite of dispatch of UN forces. But a picture taken by accident in the battle field accelerates the peace process. It is a picture of a flag. Although they are enemies, they cooperate together to fly it in a sanctuary, and the flag becomes the symbol of the peace. However, just before the peace agreement is achieved, the flag is robbed by an armed extremist group in order to obstruct the truce. UN decides to send SDC (Special Development Command) and a cameraman to record their activities. The cameraman is Shirasu Saeko. She is the cameraman who took the picture of the flag. At first they think the mission is easy because they wear latest armed suits, HAVWC (High Agility Versatile Weapon Carrier), but they get in trouble by unexpected attacks."

07/02 Taiyou no Mukushiroku Special - Japan's Collapse - An earthquake physically splits Japan in two through Tokyo. The result? Drama! Also patriotism!

(This is a two-part special, with the second part on 7/27)

07/02 Kemonozume Sakaba - A man and a women fall in love. The man is secretly a monster hunter. The woman is secretly a monster!

"Absurd and stylish action which a huge monster riots and is unfolded the surroundings, making full use of a sword, a gun, robot arms, etc. is also a highlight. The appearance of the stimulative entertainment which is not until now!"

07/02 Chevalier d'Eon Special - See below.

07/02 Project BLUE Earth SOS - Based on the art of a famous guy named Shigeru Komatsuzaki (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encycloped...le.php?id=54347). CG aliens invade and people fight them excitingly. Features lots of CG models of airplanes on the website.

(Wasn't Penny Carter the girl in Inspector Gadget? Anyway, it's not as bad as this name: http://www.projectblue.jp/character/03.php)

07/03 Coyote Ragtime Show - ufotable heads for the American market with a show named suspiciously like that other one that began with C and had a music genre in its name. Will it have the same animation quality as Futalt, without the other stuff?

(Trailer: http://www.ufotable.net/coyote/pv/COYOTE_PV_vol002.wmv. Also, the website navigation's all in English)

07/05 Governmental Crime Investigation Agent Zaizen Joutarou - This guy named Zaizen Joutarou investigates governmental corruption, apparently with a gun.

"With extralegal authority and original mobility, Zaizen rouses the iron hammer of justice in the sanctuary which can break in neither the police nor criminal investigation!!"

07/09 Welcome to NHK! - The hikikomori action epic for the modern age!

(Animation: Studio GONZO, director: the Keroro Gunsou guy, OP/ED: ROUND TABLE and Kenji Otsuki, fansubs: possibly Triad, failing that S.ADTRW)

07/26 Innocent Venus - In the future, global warming and a lot of hurricanes will destroy the world and cause totalitarians to take over Japan. The main characters escape from the Special Forces and a bunch of robot fights result, I think.

07/29 Night Head Genesis - "Night Head Genesis is based on a Japanese tv show that aired in '92. It's about two psychic brothers who escape from a science facility that had them locked up 15 years for having strong psychic abilities."

(Night Head is the other 90% of the brain you don't use)

08/19 Le Chevalier d'Eon - ANN article

Moé

06/29 Binbou Shimai Monogatari http://www.toei-anim.co.jp/tv/binboushimai/ - Plotless heartwarming "story of poor girls". Art is a ripoff of Kamichu, so maybe some brilliance will leak out? Kotonoha is doing the manga.

07/01 Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z

07/01 Fairy Musketeers Akazukin - A little kid goes to an alternate world and has fairy tale adventures about shooting things.

07/01 Tsuyokiss - Dating game adaption with the surprise twist that all the girls are tsundere*. Apparently this is exciting to the sort of people who get excited about these things, so if you're one of them look out for it.

07/02 Zero no Tsukaima - A witch summons the ordinary-student main character as her familiar. No further plot up yet.

07/08 Tonagra! - romantic comedy harem et cetera

07/11 Chokotto Sister - One of those romantic comedy things again, but I thought the manga was actually good.

07/21 UFO Princess Walküre - You'd think they'd stop making these.

(Pay-per-view showing of the OVA)

Also, the Gunbuster movie and Makoto Shinkai's new film might come out this summer, but probably won't until autumn.
