Light Novel series, Haiyore Nyaruko-san has been graced with a TV-anime adaptation! Announced on the sleeve of the fifth volume!

The story centers around Nyarlathotep, a formless Cthulhu deity who can take on the shape of anyone it wishes, but particularly the shape of a seemingly ordinary silver-haired girl. Mahiro Yasaka is a normal high school student who is chased by aliens one night, until "Nyaruko" saves him.

It sounds like your typical anime premise, but if the art and characters can carry it above this cliche premise, it could be one to watch! The drama CD cast (which haven't been confirmed for the anime yet, but are likely to be):


Most importantly, Kana Asumi!! (Poplar) playing the lead, Nyaruko!!Kana Asumi is rapidly becoming one of my favourite seiyuus with her adorable voice, and she would already be a big plus for the anime. It also boasts, Eri Kitamura, Miyu Matsuki, Yoko Hikasa (Mio), and Tomoko Kaneda (as well as a few male roles lol). Seems to be a good cast/

As you may have heard, P.A Works have celebrated their 10th anniversery (congrats, btw!) and dropped a new anime announcement:

Hana-Saku Iroha!

I'm excited about this because I'm a fan of P.A Works (even though Angel Beats was a bit dubious in some ways), and it's an original anime series. At first I thought it was a game adaptation, but the character designs you see are original character designs by Mel Kishida. They looks fantastic, but the key will be how the anime designs turn out. Mel Kishida did great designs for Soranowoto, but the eventual anime designs didn't capture it well. Staff aren't yet known, but that there will be a song by nano.RIPE, 'Patricia'.

The other big plus for this series is the lead role being played by Kanae Itou! As a fan of hers I picked her voice right away! Just from that short monologue in the PV I already get a sense that she's a great fit for the character.

Koe de Oshigoto is getting an anime OAD adaptation! The first episode (titled take.1) will be released on the 17th of November. The cast has also been announced:

> 青柳柑奈:MAKO
> 藁園文花:石川綾乃
> 能家葉月:長妻樹里
> 牧野小鳥:島形麻衣奈

Kanna Aoyagi: MAKO
Ayano Ishikawa
Nagatsuma Jyuri
Shimagata Maina

This is going to be a lot of fun! It's a fairly ecchi manga at times, but with an interesting and fresh twist! 

Koe De Oshigoto is a story about Aoyagi Kanna, a 16 year-old girl who was asked to become an eroge seiyū on her 16th birthday by her 28 year-old sister at her eroge company. She disagreed at first, but after she thought about all the things her sister did for her she finally agreed. But being a high school student and knowing nothing about eroge can she do the job properly? (wikipedia)

I read a bit of this, and it's very fun, playing up the embarassment factor very well!

Steins;Gate a popular game from production companies 5pb. and Nitroplus (who also did Chaos;Head), is getting an anime! This was announced on the head of 5pb.'s twitter account, and no other details are yet revealed. Steins;Gate is notable for me because it has a wealth of fantastic art from Huke (who did the original BRS artwork/designs). This anime could be really good if handled right.

Yumekui Mary TV anime announced! Rejoice? I don't know, I've never heard of this manga before. But judging by the artwork, it's very much my cup of tea!

It seems traps are back in fashion! New anime announcement: 

Mayo elle Otoko no Ko

Interestingly, it's an original series, but themed around cross-dressing. Traps aren't really my thing, but hey. The staff and cast were also announced, which I started to translate but ended up lazily stealing from moetron:


  • Director: Kawaguchi Keiichiro (Hayate the Combat Butler!)
  • Screenplay: Amagawa Nobuhiko (Taishou Yakyuu Musume)
  • Character Design: Sadakata Kikuko (Shikabane Hime)
  • Theme Song Performance: Sakakibara Yui (Nyan Koi!)
  • Animation Production: Actas (Moetan)


  • Hanazawa Kana
  • Iguchi Yuka
  • Fujimura Ayumi
  • Fujita Saki
  • Ise Mariya
  • Makiguchi Mayuki
  • Sakakibara Yui

Yay! I like Haruka Tomatsu (for Yun-Yun from CANAAN, and Sumi from Moetan), I hope she can make Ringo cute!
