K Anime Gets Game for Female Players by Otomate
The "Otomate Part 2013" event announced on Sunday that the K anime franchise is inspiring a game aimed at female players (otome game). Otomate, Idea Factory's otome game brand, is releasing the title next year.
"Otomate Part 2013" also announced that the stage play based on Idea Factory's Hanayaka Nari, Waga Ichizoku game is getting another run. The play will return from August 3 to August 12 at the Seiryōkai-kan Hall in Tokyo's Nagata area. In addition, Otomate's 2012 Hakuōki spinoff Toki no Kizuna ~Sekigahara Kitan~ game is getting both a stage play and a July fan disc. Another Otomate game, 2010's Clock Zero ~Shūen no Ichibyō~ is also getting a stage play. These two new stage plays are part of the new Otome Live brand.
GoRA Project and GoHands' K television anime premiered last October with Shingo Suzuki (Mardock Scramble) as the director and character designer. A sequel was announced in December, and the staff revealed last month that the sequel will be a film next year.
