    Edit: It appears that another animation studio, Xebec, will be developing Maken-Ki-Two! At the moment, I am unsure if the storyline will continue from the first season, but I am definitely looking forward to more fanservice! :D

    Link to the official anime website for "Maken-Ki-Two", although not much information is displayed for now:

    PV for Maken-Ki 2. Yay for more fanservice!



    Older Post: While browsing around a bookstore during my lunch time earlier today, I saw the tankoubon edition of Maken-ki and on its respective covers, there is an announcement stating that an anime adaptation is currently in the works. For those who do not know of its significance, it simply means that another ecchi fanservice themed anime title will be gracing our screens soon enough!

    The mangaka of Maken-Ki is Takeda Hiromitsu, whom some of us may recognize as a hentai artist. The storyline of Maken-Ki focuses on Ohyama Takeru (the male protagonist), who has enrolled in a high school where students are assigned items or weapons which enable them to engage in combat under the watchful eye of referees. Takeru soon meets 3 females who will play important roles in determining how his high school life turns out - Amaya Haruko, his childhood friend, Himegami Kodama, a tsundere, and Kushiya Inaho, his self-proclaimed fiancee. At the same time, Takeru discovers that no item or weapon is suitable for him - Will he be able to survive battles?

    The manga counterpart of Maken-Ki is apparently quite popular among male readers, including myself. ^_^;; Hopefully, its anime adaptation will live up to expectations, or maybe surpass them.

    Reasons to catch Maken-Ki:
    - Schoolgirls and the complementary ecchi-fanservice. Both busty females and DFCs are featured.
    - The various fighting scenes, and hopefully, they are well-animated.
    - Erm... I guess that is all I can think of right now.

    Last but not least, here are some related images, courtesy of the manga and imageboards:

    Synopsis: Takeru Ohyama, a young normal yet perverted minded guy, got accepted and now goes to a school that, unknown to him, was where combat and magic is used. On the first day, he meets again after three years: Haruko Amaya, his childhood friend, Inaho Kushiya, a girl who says she's his fiance, and Kodama Himegami, a blonde who wants to kill him. Finding out that there are many girls there that just don't like him, he is told that everyone there uses a special magic ability while using an item or weapon called a Maken. Later, he finds that no Maken is acceptable for him and doesn't know what to do, since in this school the students get into duels that showcase their magic and combat power, to which he seemingly has none.

    More Information: The series has finally been confirmed for Oct 2011. The producer of the series will be AIC. More information added as confirmed.

    Yup, lol.
    I believe their was a post for it, but I could not find it. And if censorship is the issue might as well prepare for the BD/DVD wait. I just hope it does not need up like Freezing, lol.

    I'm honestly worried about his artstyle, Butchered censors is one thing, but can the anime keep the original standard.

    Well, I am having faith in AIC, since their past record speaks for itself, but I could be hoping against hope for the art to be done right. I have my fingers crossed.

    Oh choices, do I add this to my watch list or do I pass on this because the manga is slowly losing my interest? No amount of ecchi will ever keep my attention for long I'm afraid.

    Hm. It looks okay, but I'm not sure if I'm gonna check it out yet. Will wait for some episode screen caps when it airs and see. This may be another release to wait for the bd/dvds for.

    What.

    Really? I mean I'm happy this is getting an animation, but really?

    What is it these days with making an anime series out of short series?

    Lol. I am thinking the censoring will be a given. More than likely to get people to buy the BD/DVD; unless it airs on another network that will do uncensored. Although, I am just guessing. I am more worried on the direction and story, lol

    Why are you saying such a horrible thing!? HnA anime is a complete degradation of the light novel (personal opinion, no offense).
