Ultimatum notes that the eleventh issue of 2007 for the biweekly Evening seinen manga magazine (officially on sale May 8) has reportedly announced the anime adaptation of Masayuki Ishikawa's Moyashimon: Tales of Agriculture. The anime will air on Fuji TV's popular late-night "Noitamina" (animation spelled backwards) timeslot in October. The Tezuka Cultural Prize-nominated manga depicts an agricultural college student who perceives fungi and viruses as super-deformed characters. Despite the manga's crossover appeal to female fans, the anime will cement Noitamina's shift away from its former female audience target, a shift that started with 2006's Hataraki Man.
