The Amazon.co.jp online retailer lists the second volume of the Magical Cute (Maji-Kyū) 4-koma manga adaptation of the Shukufuku no Campanella -la campanella della benedizione- adult personal computer game, and the listing says that an anime adaptation has been green-lit. Windmill Oasis released the original fantasy adventure game in January.
The game's story is set in Ert'Aria, a city known as the "treasury of the world" for the great riches that pass through its streets. The city is in the middle of preparations for a special harvest festival; every seven years, the harvest of the mysterious energy source known as Ēru is more abundant than usual and attracts merchants, tourists, and adventurers from around the world. During those abundant years, a "Day of Shooting Stars" lights up the night skies.
Leicester Maycraft is a young item technician who lives in the city as part of the Oasis adventurers clan. On the "Day of Shooting Stars," one shooting star lands near a party that Leicester attends. When Leicester searches for where the shooting star landed, a girl appears before Leicester and says, "You are my Papa!"
