posted on by Egan Loo
NanaOn-Sha's Major Minor's Majestic March (Meja-Maji March) music rhythm game for the Nintendo Wii console is inspiring a series of Meja-Maji Quiz anime shorts on Japanese television this month. In the original game, the player assumes the role of a drum major leading a band. In the anime, the lead character Mejama-kun (Major Minor in English) and his band challenge viewers with a time-based quiz. As announced on the game's official website on Friday, the Japanese broadcaster Fuji TV is airing the anime shorts every day from April 19 to April 23. April 23 is also the day that Square Enix is releasing the game itself in Japan. The shorts will stream on the official website.
NanaOn-Sha is the studio founded by Masaya Matsuura, the creator of the PaRappa the Rapper series. Majesco Entertainment released the Major Minor's Majestic March game in North America on March 24.
