Volume 1 of Occult Academy comes with a fairly boring bonus A3 sized poster. Why those costumes? :S

⚫ Occult Academy DVD/Blu-ray releases are going to include extra 'spinoff' episodes. This is basically industry practice to do now, but what's impressive is that there are going to be 4 episodes in total!

⚫ Seven Seas has now officially licensed the Railgun manga (yay!!), and also picked up Amnesia Labyrinth, which is a new work by the author of Haruhi.

⚫ The new single from Ryo/kz, 'Kocchi Muiteyo Baby/Yellow' hit number 9 on the oricon singles charts, selling 18,000 copies to be the first single to hit the oricon charts.

⚫ Moonphase posted an unconfirmed runour that Sunrise will produce an anime adaptation of Owari no Chronicle. As far as rumours go, this seems like a reasonably plausible one.

The new episode of Occult Academy looks like it has plenty of eye candy! Reactions to the episode from 2channel have been very positive.

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin #1

A fairly average first episode that failed to grab me. While it's undoubtedly a leap ahead of Senkou no Night Raid, I'm still not especially impressed with the latest Anime no Chikara project. I am at least happy that this seems like an original series that will actually be, you know, original (instead of recycling cliches like Soranowoto). But that alone isn't enough! The animation is done quite well, but the art is fairly simple. I'm not a fan of the character designs, nor much of the background art. The way this first episode was directed was kind of interesting - the director is fond of cutting sharply to characters during scenes to show their reactions and give it a certain tension. It reminds me of some older SHAFT anime. Overall, the visuals are competant but come off as a little bland. The only scene that really struck me as having gravitas was on the roof at the end of the episode. The beautiful shading effects, background artwork and unusual pacing of that beat was pretty interesting.

Osamu Kobayashi's description of the anime as terrible is a little off, but I would agree that there's something missing here.

Osamu Kobayashi (Director of Paradise Kiss and Beck) was strongly critical of Gakuin Occult Gakuin Academy on twitter, describing it as awful in both directing and animation.

オカルト学院、酷かったなー、演出も作画も。途中でチャンネル変えたら生徒会役員共っていうのがやってたん だけど、なんか凄かった。EDのアニメがちもくんぽかったけど菊田幸一っていう人だった。EDはナカナカ良かったです。

But apparently he recieved a lot of "you're one to talk" comments in return!

Gakuin Occult Academy (3rd Anime no Chikara project, again by A-1 Pictures) aired last night and has garened mixed opinions! The screencaps suggest that it could be kind of weird and interesting, but I'm not totally sold on the designs (but the loli form of the main character is really cute~).


Isn't it interesting? Anime no Chikara has finally started.
