The Japanese online retailer Game Star posted a listing for Koei's female-oriented La Corda D'Oro 2 Forte (Kin-iro no Corda 2 F) romance simulation game that indicates a television series is in the works. According to the listing, a new characer named Etō will appear in both the PSP game, which will ship in Japan on February 26, and a television anime that is scheduled to premiere in March. Satoshi Hino will voice the new Etō character, but no other game retailer includes a mention of a television anime series in its listings.
The first La Corda D'Oro game was adapted into a television anime series, La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~, in 2006. The story takes place in an academy where a girl receives a magical violin to compete in the school's elite music program. The player can choose how the girl interacts with her fellow students, including a bevy of handsome males. Two other franchises in Koei's Neo Romance line romance simulation games for female players, Angelique and Haruka -Beyond the Stream of Time-, have also been adapted into television anime series.
Update: Viz Media published the ninth volume of Yuki Kure's ongoing manga version of La Corda D'Oro in North America.
