In case our live coverage of Anime Expo 2011 hasn't tipped you off, the monster Los Angeles convention is now well underway, and with that comes new announcements. NIS America announced a couple new acquisitions at their AX panel today: the 2011 Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera anime, and the first Kimi ni Todoke anime.
Kimi ni Todoke is an adaptation of Karuho Shiina's shojo manga, which began serialization in 2005 and has been published in North America by Viz Media. NIS will be releasing the series in 2 parts of 13 episodes each, the first of which ships in October with the second coming "later." Full specs to come.
Significantly less is known about the release date for Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera, the latest from Go Nagai's Dororon Enma-kun franchise. The anime premiered in April, and the staff of NIS America hopes to have more information for Anime Expo 2012.
