The October issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Nyantype magazine is reporting on Tuesday that the television anime adaptation of Yukito Ayatsuji's Another horror novel will premiere next January. The website for the anime already revealed that the anime would air in 2012 with original character designs by Noizi Ito (Haruhi Suzumiya, Shakugan no Shana). The 2009 novel centers around a school class that has a curse, and the string of unavoidable deaths that befall the boys and girls in that class.
Tsutomu Mizushima (Blood-C, XXXHOLiC) will direct the anime at the studio P.A. Works. Ryou Higaki (Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit) is in charge of the scripts, and Yuriko Ishii (Persona -trinity soul-) is adapting Ito's designs for animation.
