The October issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi shōjo magazine is announcing on September 3 that a TV anime adaptation of Hidekichi Matsumoto's Sabagebu! (short for Survival Game Club) has been green-lit for 2014. Masahiko Ohta (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily) will direct the anime from scripts by Takashi Aoshima (Kotoura-san).
The story of the original manga revolves around Momoka Sonokawa, a girl who transferred into a certain girls' high school. The club she ended up joining at school was the "Sabagebu," a club that conducts survival games.
Matsumoto began the manga in the magazine in 2011, and Kodansha will ship the 5th compiled volume in September. Matsumoto's Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei manga was also adapted into an anime in 2011.
