Anime of Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi Light Novels Listed (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
A retail guide for Japanese bookstores lists a planned anime adaptation for the Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi light novel series by Takaya Kagami (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes/DenYūDen). The "reverse school fantasy" follows an ordinary high school boy named Taito Kurogane who is given a "poison" by a female vampire named Saitohimea, thus changing his life.
The light novel series launched in 2008, and the sixth volume shipped this year along with a spinoff novel. Shiori Asahina has been drawing a manga adaptation in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine since last year, and the first compiled volume shipped in June. The official website for the magazine had listed an "important announcement" in the November issue, which will ship on October 9.
Update: More background and story information added.
Update 2: Dragon Age confirms the anime adaptation plans.
