Maken-Ki! Two Anime's Ad Runs on BS11 Channel

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Series to premiere on January 15

Japanese television channel BS11 began running a commercial for the Maken-Ki! Two television anime. BS11 will run the series on January 17 after it first premieres on January 15. The commercial features the series' opening theme "Cherish" by voice actress group sweet ARMS.

A new team of staff are 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 released the first television series on DVD and Blu-ray last month.
