The media distribution website Crunchyroll is listing the Durarara!! and Chu-Bra!! anime series among its list of "All Anime Titles" on its website's main page. The website's links for both anime series are inactive. Both titles are premiering on Japanese television in the first week of January. Crunchyroll's listings do not necessarily indicate definite release plans or dates.
The Durarara!! anime adapts Ryohgo Narita's Durarara!! "high-tension suspense action" light novels of the same name. After launching his earlier Baccano! light novel series, Narita set the "warped adolescent fantasy romance" of Durarara!! in a rowdy version of Tokyo's Ikebukuro neighborhood in 2004. He has since written six Durarara!! novel volumes, and they have already inspired a manga series in Square Enix's G Fantasy magazine earlier this year. The television anime series will premiere in Japan on January 7. ...

Comedy follows an eraser's battles to be the strongest in stationery supplies
The January issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Coro Coro Comic magazine confirmed on December 15 that an anime adaptation of Noriyuki Murase's Keshikasu-kun children's comedy manga has been green-lit. The licensing company Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions lists the anime as a television production.
The story centers on a white eraser (keshi-gomu) that strives to be the strongest in stationery supplies. The eraser dons a paper costume and a piece of eraser crumb (kasu) on his head to become Keshikasu-kun. Keshikasu-kun vows to erase the correction fluid (shūseieki), the blackboard eraser (kokuban-keshi), and his other rivals.
The manga has been running in Monthly Coro Coro Comic since 2004, and the eighth compiled book volume shipped this month. The manga won the children's category in the 53rd annual Shogakukan Manga Awards. Keshikasu-kun has already appeared as a computer-graphics character in the Oha Coliseum television program since last year.

Lone wolf and cub
Japanese anime is becoming increasingly popular with American kids who are drawn to its darker, more complex world view. These stories reflect ancient eastern sensibilities that are rooted in human suffering rarely known in the land of happily ever after.

I admit I might be a bit biased in that assessment. This was, after all, also the year I finished "The Rough Guide to Manga" (published by Rough Guides, $18.99 suggested retail, on the verge of selling out on Amazon in five different countries ... and with Christmas over, may I now say that it'll make a great gift in the new year).
