More on Shimura-sensei's Hourou Musuko!

I mentioned that Shimura Takako-sensei's Hourou Musuko had been green-lit for an anime adaptation a while ago. Now we have more info on the show! ^^

It's premiering on Fuji TV's Noitamina block this January and being animated by AIC. (Nice timing since the first volume of the Hourou Musuko manga is being released in English this February.)

The director is Aoki Ei (who also directed Ga Rei -Zero- and the first Kara no Kyoukai movie) and the person in charge of the series composition and script is Okada Mari, who has an impressive resume of shows under her belt.

Shuuichi will be played by Hatakeyama Kousuke and Yoshino will be played by Seto Asami, both of whom are unknowns in the seiyuu business. It'll be nice to hear new voice talent. ^_^

I'll keep an eye out for more news!

I wish publishers wouldn't push back release dates so far and so often.

I couldn't be happier for Shimura! I already have my AH volumes but when Hourou Musuko hits the shelves I'm gonna buy a heap load of copies. Shimura in English!!! I seriously can't wait!

Takatsuki looks quite different in that pic. I'd even go so far as to say that, unlike AH's adaptation, I don't even recognise them as Shimura's characters. Not that that's a big problem and it’s only one pic. I'm really looking forward to the anime as well. Shimura must be so ecstatic.
