Viz Media announced on Monday that it has acquired the rights to develop an original animated series based on children's property GAKKIMALS (Gakkiizuu), created by Japanese production duo, PecanNuts.
Viz Media describes the property:
Welcome to the wonderful adventures of the GAKKIMALS, where madcap mash-ups of musical instruments and animals combine to bring happiness and harmony to their fun-filled world.
The animal/instrument hybrid characters appeared within the TV Tokyo children's program Norista Ha~i! for one year beginning in April 2008. The characters performed in the opening and ending segments, as well as original dance segments.
