"Princess Resurrection" OVA

Princess Resurrection, which is already an anime series and a manga series, is about to become an OVA series. The release date for the first OVA had been scheduled for today, but it has now been delayed until March 2011.

Why is this important for fans of werewolves and shapeshifters? Well, I've posted about twice before, or just take a look at the trailer and see for yourself:

(See the trailer with this text link if the embedded trailer won't play.)

From the trailer, it looks as if the werewolf plotline is being given a lot of emphasis. There is no sign of the other shapeshifters (except for Hime herself, who is more of a pre-shapeshifter because she won't develop that power until she becomes an adult; but it would be a spoiler to say exactly what sort of creature she will grow up into if she survives long enough).

Overall, the OVA looks as if has higher-quality animation than the anime and will be more true to the manga's plotlines, though I do think that Hime looks a bit pointy-headed in the trailer.

Once it comes out, I'll see if I can view it and write another update.
