ANN obtained this year's 48th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and confirmed that it is not announcing an anime based on Sega's Shining game franchise on Monday. The magazine devotes page 221 to Shining Blade, the latest entry in the role-playing game franchise that is slated for the PSP next spring. However, the page does not mention any anime plans.
An anonymous poster on the 2channel forum claimed on Saturday to be reposting information about a "Shining Blade x Hearts" television anime, based on the Shining game franchise, from the studio Production I.G and the staff of the Sakura Wars anime. This led several websites to repeat the information without verification or an image source.
