Kadokawa Haruki Jimusho's official website for Issui Ogawa's Michibiki no Hoshi (Star of Guidance) science-fiction novel series announced on Thursday that an anime project was in development, but did not announce a live-action adaptation.
The image that announced the adaptation (pictured above) stated that an "anime project is in development" and added that "a screen adaptation project is in development for fall 2018." The announcement did not indicate that the two statements were about different projects.
Ogawa additionally confirmed on Twitter on Thursday that an anime adaptation is underway. He added, "the completion is planned for fall 2018."
Ogawa launched the "first-contact science fiction" series in January 2002 and has published four novel volumes. Illustrator Range Murata (Last Exile, Blue Submarine No. 6, Shangri-La) drew the cover art for all four books in the series.
