RErideD's Geek Toys produces anime originally announced last year

The official website for the anime adaptation of Suu Minazuki's Plunderer manga revealed on Friday that the anime will be a television anime series. The site also revealed a visual and the show's main staff.

Hiroyuki Kanbe (Oreimo both seasons, Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!) is directing the series at studio Geek Toys (RErideD). Masashi Suzuki (Isuca, Lord of Vermilion: The Crimson King, Minami-ke: Okawari) is overseeing the series scripts, and Yuka Takashina (Dance with Devils), Yūki Fukuchi (chief animation director for Bakuon!!), and Hiroki Fukuda (key animator for I want to eat your pancreas) are designing the characters.

Yen Press has licensed the "heroic action fantasy" manga, and it describes the story:

It's the year 305 of the Alcian calendar, and the world is controlled by numbers. Every human born is branded with a "Count,” which could mean anything from the number of kilometers walked to the amount of people who have said your food is tasty. And if your Count drops to 0… you'll be sent into the Abyss! After Hina's mother's Count dropped to 0, her last request is for Hina to look for the Legendary Red Baron.

Minazuki launched the series in Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in December 2014. Kadokawa will publish the 12th compiled volume on March 26.

Minazuki's Sora no Otoshimono (Heaven's Lost Property) manga inspired two television anime series, two anime films, and an OVA. Tokyopop, and later Viz Media, published Minazuki's five-volume Judas manga in English. Yen Press released Minazuki's four-volume Gou-dere Sora Nagihara manga in 2014-2015.
