posted on by Karen Ressler
Visual novel developer Key announced on Friday that its planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ visual novel will get an anime adaptation in 2016. The announcement did not specify the length or format of the anime.
The project's website lists david production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Level E) in charge of animation production.
The website also announces an April 15 "production presentation event" in Akihabara. The event will be free and will also stream live on Niconico.
Key made several false announcements on Friday for April Fool's Day, but renewed the planetarian anime project announcement page on April 2.
Visual Art's/Key (Clannad, Rewrite, Angel Beats!) originally released the planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ "kinetic novel" in Japan on personal computers in 2004 before porting it to the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable consoles. The story takes place 30 years after a world war put a halt to space development. The protagonist, simply known as "the Junk Hunter," attempts to restore a planetarium's projector after meeting a robot.
Sekai Project licensed the PC version of the game and released it on Steam. Visual Arts also released an English version for iOS.
