Yes! The airdate for Higurashi 2 finally has been announced. The second season is coming in July. The twenty-second, if I’m not mistaken. Now all that’s left is to hope that all of the arcs will be animated, and not just the seventh and the eighth one.
Still, that’s not nearly as interesting as some information I found while checking out Moonphase. I’m really not sure about the details, but an upcoming anime (also scheduled for the upcoming summer) called Mononoke strangely has a picture of the medicine seller from Ayakashi ~ Japanese Classic Horror on its website, and it also mentions Ayakashi once.
Oh, I’m so hoping that this is some kind of sequel or similar story of Bake Neko. If it actually is, then we’ve got ourselves a serious contender for the “best anime of 2007”. Bake Neko already was one of the best short stories I’ve ever seen, but it’s going to be even better seeing an entire anime dedicated to this concept.
