Ayano Yamane's Finder Series Boys-Love Manga Gets ANiMiX (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Project's storyboards already done for planned Spring 2011 release

Manga creator Ayano Yamane revealed at her Yaoi-Con panel on Saturday that an "Animix" adaptation of her Finder Series boys-love manga is in production. The storyboards have already been done, and the cast will be announced soon. The Animix is planned for release next spring.

The story follows freelance journalist Akihito Takaba and his relationship with the mysterious Asami, a powerful leader in Japan's underworld society. Central Park Media's Be Beautiful imprint launched its translated version of the manga in North America in 2005. Digital Manga Publishing has since announced this year that it licensed the manga.

Update: More background and story information added.

Update 2: In the panel, Yamane clarified, "anime—ano… Animix." "Animix" is the term that Libre's B-Boy imprint uses for projects that add motion and voices to a manga's original art. B-Boy posted a sample of the Animix produced for Kaoru Iwamoto's Yebisu Celebrities manga. Thanks, sunflower.
