posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 11th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is reporting on Wednesday that a television anime adaptation of Toshiya Wakabayashi's Tsuredure Children (Idle Children) manga has been green-lit for broadcast this summer.
Hiraku Kaneko (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, Manyū Hiken-chō) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi, and Tatsuhiko Urahata (Saki, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Haganai NEXT) is in charge of the series scripts. Etsuko Sumimoto (Yurikuma Arashi) is designing the characters. The magazine will report on the main cast and further details in the future.
The four-panel manga is dedicated "to those of you who can't say 'I love you.'" It chronicles a series of short school romance stories in an omnibus format.
Wakabayashi launched the manga online in October 2012, and then also began serializing it with new material in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2015. Kodansha will publish the seventh compiled book volume on February 17.
