The Animate marketing website is streaming a promotional video (narrowband or broadband bandwidth) for Frontier Works' television anime adaptation of Kazuya Minekura's Bus Gamer action suspense manga. The series premieres in Japan on March 14. The story revolves around a team of three young players in Bus Game, a reality competition in which companies bet their portfolios on the outcome. (The "Bus" in Bus Game and Bus Gamer is pronounced "Biz" as in business.) The winning players also earn life-changing amounts of money, but they discover that some losers are killed in the process.
Minekura is supervising the anime which Naoyuki Kuzuya, a storyboarder on episodes of Shuffle! and XXXHOLiC, is directing. Tokyopop published one volume of Bus Gamer 1999-2001 The Pilot Edition in North America.
