Bookstore: H+P -HimePara- Harem Comedy Novels Not Getting Anime (Update 2)

posted on by Egan Loo
Meguru Kazami's story of modern teen who must mate with 5 princesses

The book retailer Mangaoh reported on Friday that an anime adaptation of Meguru Kazami's harem fantasy comedy light novel series H+P -HimePara- has been green-lit.

In the story, the queen of Torekuwaazu has fallen ill to a mysterious ailment, putting her country in dire straits. Kyōtarō Kamiku, an ordinary teenager in modern Japan, is abruptly summoned to Torekuwaazu, where he alone must have five princesses as his mates and produce an heir to the throne.

Kazami Musuki launched the light novel series with Mutsuki Hinata's illustrations in 2008, and Fujimi Shobo's Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint published the 10th volume last month. Fumino Hayashi (Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days, Terra e... Aoki Kōbō no Keith) has been drawing a manga adaptation in Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine and Monthly Dragon Age since last year, and the second compiled book volume of the manga will ship on October 8.

Update: Marine Entertainment released a drama CD with the following cast:
Wataru Hatano as Kyōtarō Kamiku
Hiromi Konno as Pikoru

Eri Kitamura as Yufina Asutoria Torekuwaazu (oldest)
Rina Satō as Reishia Ratūin Torekuwaazu
Natsuko Kuwatani as Erisu Remurisu Torekuwaazu
Kei Shindō as Aruto Farōzu Torekuwaazu
Satomi Akesaka as Meruru Shushurin Torekuwaazu (youngest)

Update 2: Later on Friday, Mangaoh retracted the post it made earlier in the day about an anime of H+P -HimePara-. Citing an error by an individual, Mangaoh said that it meant to post that the light novels has been adapted into the previously revealed drama CD, not an anime.
