Cool, another eroge-to-anime adaptation annoucement was picked up by Gia
today, and the game in question is Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka
, developed by studio Feng. It was first released in 2007 for the PC, and a PS2 version followed just last month, so it's much fresher than the one we wrote about earlier
. Granted, that doesn't say much about its quality, but nor are we putting it into question.
More important than that, let's focus on the upcoming anime, because its staff from animation studio TNK includes names like director Keitarou Motonaga (School Days
, Amaenaide yo!!
) and script writer Makoto Uezu (School Days). See the pattern?...
You can check the official website
to see some of the game's characters in less safe for work postures than we're showing them in our local Akane-iro gallery
. And as for the underlying game's generic plot, well, here's a transcription from VNDB
"One day, Junichi's fiancee, Yuhi, moves to his high school. But, they have a quarrel on the day they first meet. Their parents discuss and order them to go out together once a month to restore their relationship. And if they can't do that, their engagement will be cancelled. Their school life starts, and various accidents happen... What will happen to their relationship in the end?"Update:
