posted on 2011-03-17 05:39 EDT
The May issue of Enterbrain's Tech Gian game magazine is revealing on Saturday that there is a television anime adaptation of Hideki Yamada's Manyū Hiken-chō manga. The historical story is set in a parallel Taihei Edo period and follows Chifusa, an amply porportioned sword fighter in the Manyū clan.
The manga has been running in Tech Gian magazine since 2005, and the fifth compiled book volume shipped last May.
Update: More background information added.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
