posted on by Egan Loo
The exhibitor notes at the Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) 2010 website have revealed on Monday that a television anime adaptation of Waka Sakamoto and L.A. Tomari's Sock Monkey Loves You. (Sock Monkey wa Kimi ga Suki) hobby craft book has been green-lit for this summer. The 2007 book teaches Japanese people about the century-old Western tradition of making stuffed monkey toys from socks. Iyasakadō Film is producing the anime project.
Iyasakadō's previous projects include last year's anime adaptation of the live-action Kotatsu Neko science-fiction/fantasy romance film and the Unko-san scatological comedy, which just launched its second anime series last month.
