Maken-Ki! Romantic Comedy Manga's New Anime Launching
posted on by Egan Loo
The October issue of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Age magazine is announcing on Friday that a new anime adaptation of Hiromitsu Takeda's Maken-Ki! manga is launching.
The story revolves around Takeru Ōyama, a boy enrolled in an elite school where the girls (and boys) fight with mysterious items called Maken. The student body includes the enigmatic girl Kodama, a girl named Inaho who calls herself Takeru's fiancée, and his childhood friend Haruko.
The manga already inspired a television anime series last year, as well as original anime DVD. Funimation licensed the television series for streaming and home entertainment releases in North America.
Update: The wraparound jacket band on the ninth volume of the manga reveals that Takeda is supervising the entire anime project. [Via IEEE802.11]
