posted on 2012-03-22 18:00 EDT
The Animate.tv website has revealed the staff for the La storia della Arcana Famiglia television anime series on Thursday.
Chiaki Kon (When They Cry - Higurashi, Nodame Cantabile: Paris and Finale, Junjō Romantica) will direct the series. Masanao Akahoshi (both Toaru Majutsu no Index series, Freezing) will handle the series composition. Mai Matsuura (Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru) will adapt Yomi Sarachi's (Steins;Gate manga) original character designs for animation.
The anime adapts HuneX and Comfort Soft's adventure game for female players. The story follows Arcana Famiglia, a self-appointed organization with mysterious powers that has protected a small Mediterranean island from pirates, foreign countries, and other threats. The only daughter of the family's "Papa," Felicitá, will be married to the next head of the family in two months — and the successor will be decided in a competition that Felicitá herself will take part in.
The anime will premiere this summer with animation by J.C. Staff. The anime will retain the cast from the original PSP game from HuneX (VitaminX Addiction) and tie-in drama CD project.
HuneX and Comfort Soft will release the Arcana Famiglia ~Vascello Phantasma no Majutsushi~ special disc for the PlayStation Portable console on June 21. The television anime series and a demo for the special disc will be featured at Anime Contents Expo on March 31-April 1.
