posted on by Egan Loo
One last television anime adaptation of Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3 was announced at Koei's Neoromance 15th Anniversary event this weekend. A Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Kurenai no Tsuki television special (pictured at right) was already produced for the Kids Station satellite and cable channel in 2007, but the new anime project has not been specified as a special or a series yet. The new anime will run on the AT-X satellite and cable channel.
Haruka -Beyond the Stream of Time- (Harukanaru Toki no Naka de) is the second franchise in KOEI's popular Neoromance line of games for female gamers. (The other Neoromance franchises are Angelique and La Corda D'Oro.) The earlier games in the series inspired the 2002-2003 two-volume Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Ajisai Yumegatari~ video series and 2003-2005 three-volume Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 2 ~Shiroki Ryuu no Miko~ video series.
These anime titles led to the 2004-2005 Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time – A Tale of the Eight Guardians (Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyou Shou~) television series, which Bandai Visual USA (now a label of Bandai Entertainment) licensed for North America. There was also a 2006 Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Maihitoyo~ movie. Viz Media publishes the Haruka -Beyond the Stream of Time- manga in North America.
