Half-human special-ops unit masquerades as a family to save Earth

The inaugural November issue of FB Online, the web information magazine for Enterbrain's Famitsu Bunko imprint, has announced that Akira's Kyōran Kazoku Nikki ("Frenzied Family Journal") light novel series will get an anime in 2008. The artist x6suke ("pekeRokusuke") illustrates the novels. The novels depict the not-so-normal life of a "family" that includes a catgirl "mother," a lion "son," a living land-combat android weapon "son," a jellyfish-like otherworldly "daughter," and a hapless 27-year-old military officer as their "father." This motley "family" was assembled as part of the Imperial Japanese Anti-Paranormal Phenomena Section's Special Operations Forces to save Earth in 2063.

The announcement page includes a preview of the conceptual art for the anime, comments from Akira, an introduction to the series, and a short comic.

The anime will mark the tenth anniversary of the Famitsu Bunko imprint. This is the fourth light novel series with animal-girl heroines (including Spice and Wolf, Wagaya no Oinarisama., and Kanokon) to have a 2008 anime adaptation announced in the last four months.
