One Week Friends' Tarou Iwasaki directs anime of Vocaloid composer Last Note's light novels

The official website for the television anime of Last Note's Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku (Mikagura School Suite) light novel series announced the staff on Friday. Tarou Iwasaki (One Week Friends) is directing the series at the studio Dogakobo (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun). Masahiro Yokotani (Free!, Maria Holic) is writing and supervising the series scripts, and Manamu Amazaki (Engaged to the Unidentified) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director.

The official Twitter account announced that the cast and broadcast time will be announced at a later date.

A key visual was also released:

Last Note, a composer of various Vocaloid songs, began the Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku light novels inspired by his own songs in July 2013 with illustrations by AKINA, who also provided the artwork for the original Vocaloid videos.

The story of the original light novels and manga revolves around high school girl Eruna Ichinomiya, who enters the Mikagura Academy dreaming of a boarding school life filled with beauty. However, Eruna finds out that in the culture clubs, there is a rule that battles that are fought with special powers decide a club representative's treatment. Through various circumstances, Eruna becomes a representative of a club, and is thrown into the fray.

A manga adaptation of the novels began in Comic Gene in August 2013 with art by Sayuki. Kadokawa will ship the fifth novel on December 25, and released the third compiled volume of the manga in September.
