Hayate the Combat Butler news and other interesting bits

According to Anime News Service, Kenjiro Hata hopes for a long Hayate anime…

1-24-07 (3:26AM EST)—- Hayate The Combat Butler Series Length
Mangaka Kenjirou Hata had some words on the state of the anime adaptation of his work Hayate the Combat Butler. According to Hata, he’s hoping the series length will be longer than 26 episodes.

Hmm, maybe 2 seasons spread over two years? Going for a single run for longer than 26 episodes tends to ruin the overall quality… I really don’t want to see the Hayate anime suffering the “anime-to-manga conversion” syndrome…

Also, a spot of news of a new interesting project:

1-24-07 (4:02AM EST)—- Voice Actresses Used As Character Design Models
Ga-nime and Toei Animation are planning a DVD release in March, 2007 for the animation A day of a girl @TYO. Original conept and character designs by Mikimoto Haruhiko (Macross), Director: Kaneko Atsuji, Cast: Akiyama Nana, Tanaka Rie, Koshimizu Ami. In an unusual move, Mikimoto is basing his character illustration concepts on the above three voice actresses. The story revolves around daily life scenes of girls living in Tokyo.

An anime for the seiyuu worshippers? Too bad my favourites aren’t in there… but someone I know on IRC will probably die when he hears of this. Admittedly, Tanaka Rie does have an interesting life, if the anime somehow manages to put in her hobby of cosplaying her characters *coughSuigintoucough*, that’ll be the bomb XD.

Finally, a follow up for my earlier post on anime/manga/game decorated cars..

1-24-07 (5:44AM EST)—- Anime Tunerz Part 2: Osaka
Senka Blog took a camera into the parking lot of the Comic Treasure 9 event, held in Osaka, Japan on January 21st. They captured photographs of many cars and bikes with anime and manga graphic mods.

Feels a little subdued compared to the Comiket one, nevertheless still awesome to see the fandom.

Doesn’t it feel like my blog is slowly turning in to a news blog ^^;;…

    MOON PHASE says that it sounds like Hayate will go for 52 (at least). Also, it looks like Synergy (doing MAR and Kirarin Revolution now) will be handling animation… hopefully it’ll be decent quality.

    Kyaah~! RDrake supports Hayate getting a 52 episode run! So long as it doesn’t teper out halfway into a real mess.

    It will be interesting to see Hayate going over 26 Eps. since then Hina’s Lacus Cosplay is ensured. but 52 or longer will definatiely result in filler issues. but I guess if its done well then i guess i can live with fillers unless its with the par of Naruto…
