Maken-Ki! Two TV Anime Slated for Winter
posted on by Egan Loo
A new team of staff will be producing the anime, with Hiraku Kaneko (The Qwaser of Stigmata) directing the television anime at Xebec. Akio Takami (Shaman King) is designing the characters, and Yousuke Kuroda (first Maken-Ki! Battling Venus anime) is writing the scripts.
The manga 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 in 2011, as well as two original anime DVDs. Funimation licensed the first television series for streaming and home entertainment releases in North America.
