Fortune Arterial Adult Game Gets Anime Green-Lit
posted on by Egan Loo
The commercial for the May issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Comptiq magazine has announced that an anime adaptation of August's Fortune Arterial adult romance adventure game has been green-lit. The story revolves around a transfer student named Kōhei Hasekura who discovers that his new remote island school, Shūchikan Academy, has a female vampire named Erika Sendō within its student body.
August shipped the limited first edition of the personal computer game in January 25, 2008, and the regular edition shipped on February 29, 2008. The game already inspired five drama CDs from Marine Entertainment, six novel volumes from Runa Okada and Harvest, three different manga series, and a comic anthology from Ichijinsha. Enterbrain's Magi-Cu Comics published nine volumes of a four-panel manga since 2008. ASCII MediaWorks' Dengeki G's Magazine published the Fortune Arterial: Character's Prelude manga by Akane Sasaki (Princess Ninja Scroll Tenka Musō) that same year. Kadokawa Shoten's Comptiq magazine has been running the main Fortune Arterial manga by Miki Kodama (Canvas2 ~Niji-iro no Sketch~) since 2008 also, and the third volume of this manga shipped in October.
Update: More background information added.
