Madhouse Studio Makes Hanayamata Schoolgirl Dancing TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The February issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a television anime adaptation of Sou Hamayumiba's Hanayamata manga has been green-lit. The anime studio Madhouse (Highschool of the Dead, Chihayafuru, Photo Kano) is producing the project.
Ordinary in looks, ordinary in brains, ordinary in arts and athletics … 14-year-old Naru Sekiya is just ordinary in every way. Naru leads an ordinary day-to-day life even as she adores "heroines." She embarks on a path to an unordinary world called "Yosakoi" dance, guided by an exotic fairylike girl she met one moonlit evening.
Hamayumiba has been running the manga in Manga Time Kirara Forward since 2011, and Houbunsha will publish the fourth volume on January 10. Sou also created the Sorairo Square. (Sky-Blue Square) manga. Madhouse is animating The irregular at magic high school and Magical Warfare television anime next April and next January, respectively.
