“Tsugumomo” Anime Gets PV and Key Visual

The official website for the Tsugumomo anime adaptation has uploaded a key visual and promotional video for the upcoming series. Tsugumomo began as a manga in November 2007 by Yoshikadu Hamada and was published in Monthly Action Magazine. It had a brief English publication through JManga before the site closed down with only two volumes translated.

The series’ synopsis can be found below:

“Kazuya Kagami never goes anywhere without the precious “Fukurobi” his mother gave him. One day a beautiful, kimono-clad girl named Kiriha appeared before him. Kiriha naturally began to live with Kazuya in his room. Then there’s Chisato, Kazuya’s childhood friend with glasses and a ponytail, who meddles in his affairs. Soon there’s also an overprotective older sister who seems to want to take baths with him. Jumble in a huge-chested priestess, a good-looking sorceress named Kokuyoura, beautiful women, and hot girls, and Kazuya’s happy, embarrassing, confusing life begins…”

Tsugumomo will begin airing on April 2.

15-Second CM Released for “Zero no Tsukaima” Final Volume

A short 15-second commercial has been released for the final volume in the Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero) light novel series! The series was put on hold at volume 20 after the author, Noboru Yamaguchi, lost his battle with cancer at age 41. His editors were given the responsibility of finishing the series and will complete that task with this 22nd volume’s release.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis of the light novel series below:

“The continent of Halkeginia is tumultuous—a place where the various kingdoms, princedoms, dukedoms, and fiefdoms strive against each other to expand their domains. The nobility scheme and plot among themselves to gain influence to their lieges or to even foreign lieges. In the middle of Halkeginia is the small but important kingdom of Tristein. The most notable fact about this kingdom is the Tristein Academy of Magic where nobility from all over the world come to study magic so they can become magi. Although friendships will form across national boundaries at this school, will they survive the politics and games of the world at large once they leave?

Louise is a student at Tristein Magical Academy. She is known to be quite a screw up when it comes to her magic. One day, a ceremony takes place where each student is to call forth a being or entity that will become his or her familiar. For Louise, her familiar comes in the form of a boy named Hiraga Saito. Somehow, he managed to get transported from his world into hers, and shortly after became her familiar.”

The volume will be released on February 24.

While starving on a riverbank, Atsushi saves a rather eccentric man named Osamu Dazai from drowning. Whimsical suicide enthusiast and supernatural detective, Dazai has been investigating the same tiger that has been terrorizing the boy. Together with Dazai’s partner Doppo Kunikida, they solve the mystery, but its resolution leaves Atsushi in a tight spot. As various odd events take place, Atsushi is coerced into joining their firm of supernatural investigators, taking on unusual cases the police cannot handle, alongside his numerous enigmatic co-workers.”
