The June issue of Akita Shoten's Champion Red magazine will announce on Tuesday that development has begun on a television adaptation of Hiroyuki Yoshino and Kenetsu Satou's Seikon no Qwaser manga. The mature supernatural action story follows the students of the privately-run St. Mikhailov Academy — in particular, a boy named Aleksander who is a qwaser, or a manipulator of the element of iron. The story is known for its heavy emphasis on fan service, especially with breast milk as a plot device. The manga has been running since late 2006, and the seventh compiled volume is shipping this month in Japan.
Yoshino was the anime series script supervisor on Denpa teki na Kanojo, Macross Frontier, and the My-HiME and My-Otome projects. Satou drew the manga adaptations of My-Hime and My-Otome.
Update: More background information added.
