That's one more title we can add to our release list
, for next spring's anime season. Originally a gag manga published since 2002 - and still ongoing - in the Mainichi Shimbun newspaper, Mainichi Kaasan
is set to become an anime series starting from April 2009. The announcement comes via ANN
from the popular newspaper's website (popular for its spicy sex stories
, if anything), but with no animation studio named yet.
Mainichi Kaasan (Daily / Everyday Mom) is a slice-of-life gag manga by Rieko Saibara, who describes random funny stuff about herself and her two kids. Aside from the various awards it received, the manga also got some media loving when the author got into a dispute with the school
attended by her eldest son, after calling 5 school children as "the 5 class dummies".
Anyway, the manga was compiled into 5 volumes so far, although the fifth one has yet to be released, this December 13.
