It could also be an OVA of course. I was trying to look on the website for info on format but oh my god it's so slow I give up.
The site, like many when an announcement of this type occurs, is being hit by many people both in and outside of Japan. Best to wait until later today to try and see the video.
I remember in 2008 you had K-On!
, the New Haruhi Suzumiya
animation, and Haruhi-chan
announced at the same time. I'm not sure if Mundo
's movie was announced then, but Clannad ~After Story~
was also airing as well, so it was quite busy at KyoAni. As a side note, they were finishing storyboards for The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
at that time as well.
The story won the "encouragement award," but even the "grand prize" doesn't guarantee that it would be animated. Given that this series is the only one thus far to get a second novel, it's no surprise that they chose to animate this one. They don't specify that it's a TV series and just say "in process of animating", so it may be a movie or OVA.
It sounds interesting to me, but I like these kinds of shows.
