Greetings WME members!

Nomake Wan here, and I'm pleased to announce that Wangan Midnight Expressway is the first site to post news on forthcoming releases of the Wangan Midnight Anime! Contrary to what Wikipedia used to say, the Anime is far from cancelled--the next two episodes (15-16) air on March 21st. However, the TV air dates aren't the important topic today.

Amazon.co.jp, the Japanese version of Amazon.com, has gone ahead of everyone else and posted up the release dates for all Wangan Midnight DVDs. Thanks to this, I can now provide everyone with not only when the DVDs will come out, but how many episodes the Anime will have total. The information is as follows:

DVD Volume 7 (13-14): April 23rd, 2008
DVD Volume 8 (15-16): May 23rd, 2008
DVD Volume 9 (17-18): June 25th, 2008
DVD Volume 10 (19-20): July 25th, 2008
DVD Volume 11 (21-22): August 22nd, 2008
DVD Volume 12 (23-24): September 26th, 2008
DVD Volume 13 (25-26): October 24th, 2008

So as you can see, the series is going to span an entire season at 26 episodes. After those 26 episodes are over, you can bet that O.B. Planning will announce what it plans to do next. Could we see a second season of Wangan Midnight? Or will there be an Initial D project in the works? Or maybe something different, perhaps an Anime adaptation for some other racing manga? We're bound to find out by the end of the year!

Thanks for sticking with us, as we'll be providing the latest Wangan Midnight news as it develops!

By the way, for those who weren't aware, the second soundtrack for the Wangan Midnight Anime, which features the insert song from episode 4 titled "Get a Wave" is released tomorrow (03/05/08) in Japan! Rest assured that we've got it on pre-order, and it will be up for all of you as soon as it arrives. Stay tuned!
