Sabagebu! Shōjo Manga Gets TV Anime in 2014

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Yuruyuri's Masahiko Ohta to direct adaptation of Hidekichi Matsumoto's manga about girls' school survival game club

The October issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi shōjo magazine is announcing on September 3 that a TV anime adaptation of Hidekichi Matsumoto's Sabagebu! (short for Survival Game Club!) has been green-lit for 2014. Masahiko Ohta (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily) will direct the anime from scripts by Takashi Aoshima (Kotoura-san).

The story of the original manga revolves around Momoka Sonokawa, a girl who transferred into a certain girls' high school. The club she ended up joining at school was the "Sabagebu!," a club that conducts survival games.

Matsumoto began the manga in the magazine in 2011, and Kodansha will ship the 5th compiled volume in September. Matsumoto's Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei manga was also adapted into an anime in 2011.

Update: Staff added.
