The 56th volume of Ohta Books' Manga Erotics F magazine has announced on Friday that a television anime adaptation of Takako Shimura's Aoi Hana yuri manga has been green-lit. The anime is slated to premiere this July on Fuji TV and other stations in Japan as the third series in Fuji TV's "Noise" timeslot. (The two earlier series are Michiko to Hatchin and the upcoming Ristorante Paradiso.) J.C. Staff will produce the animation, and more information will be announced on the magazine's official website. The manga has been running in Manga Erotics F since 2004, and three volumes have been compiled and published.
In the original manga's story, Fumi and Akira were close childhood friends until Fumi had to move away. Ten years after losing touch with each other, the two girls meet again as high school freshmen. The two struggle to reconnect after so much has changed, and both deal with the trials and tribulations of high school — sometimes independently and sometimes with each other's help.
