posted on 2012-06-19 22:12 EDT
An article (link contains images that are not work safe) on the Akiba Blog website by an unnamed "guerrilla PR man" announced on Wednesday that an original anime featuring "Nerd-chan," the website's mascot, is under development. Further details about the production will be revealed in a June 27 follow-up article, though a post by the website's owner insists that he himself did not actively pitch the idea for the anime.
The Nerd-chan (also known as Nerd-tan) character for the website was originally illustrated by POP, whose character designs have been used in titles such as Moetan and Kowarekake no Orgel. Two images of character sheets for the anime adaptation of the character were also revealed in the post.
