The 127th "Sono Na mo J" handout for Media Factory's MF Bunko J imprint is announcing this month that a television anime adaptation of Reiji Kaitō's Unbreakable Machine-Doll (Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai) light novel series has been green-lit.
The "symphonic school battle action" story follows a boy puppeteer named Raishin Akabane he travels from Japan with his female automaton Yaya to study at the highest institution for "Machinart" (the craft of making automatons). A combat tournament at this Walpurgis Royal Academy in England determines the top puppeteer or "Maō."
Kaito launched the light novel series with illustrations by LLO (Mushi-Uta , Oreshura ) in 2009, and the ninth volume shipped last September. Hakaru Takagi launched a manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2010.
