posted on 2009-04-28 01:22 EDT by Egan Loo
The manga creator Takuya Fujima has announced in a Tuesday blog entry that a television anime adaptation of the Weiß Survive card game manga has been green-lit. The story follows the main characters Takeshi and Michi as they get lost in the Card Battle world and have to win card battles to return home. Nobuhisa Nakamoto will voice the hero Takeshi, and Izumi Kitta will play the heroine Michi.
The color manga runs Bushiroad's trading card game magazine, while the Japanese station TBS will premiere the 16 anime shorts in June. The shorts, which will run about 150 seconds in length, will be part of the Card Gakuen card-game-tutorial television program at 25:25 on Fridays (effectively 1:25 a.m. on Saturday mornings). Nana Mizuki sings the opening theme song of Card Gakuen.
Fujima's previous manga include Deus Vitae, Free Collars Kingdom, and Tsuiteru Kanojo. She also drew the Mahō Shōjo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid and Negima!? neo manga adaptations. Tokyopop publishes Deus Vitae in North America, while Del Rey publishes Free Collars Kingdom and Negima!? neo.
Update: More production and story information added.
