The February issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine is announcing on Thursday that an anime adaptation of Yūko Kasumi and Yasushi Akimoto's Marimo no Hana: Saikyō Butō-ha Shōgakusei Densetsu shōjo manga has been green-lit. Akimoto is best known for creating and producing the all-female idol group AKB48.
The story of the manga centers around Marimo Nogami, a usually quiet fourth-grade girl in elementary school. However, a certain incident leads to Marimo's personal strength blossoming.
The Marimo no Hana anime and another anime announced in the same February issue of Ribon, Nagareboshi Lens, will be screened at Ribon Haru no Event, a free event to be held in four locations throughout Japan in the spring.
The Marimo no Hana manga launched in Ribon last year, and the third volume is shipping this month.
