Two interesting new anime adaptations are pending announcement, according to Moon Phase. First up is 屍姫 / Shikabane Hime, “Corpse Princess”, a manga which focuses on gun toting zombie hunting school girls and so is sure to be popular; though the author is renowned for his reluctance to grant upskirt schoolgirl panchira (he seems to rely on strategically placed guns instead, or possibly nopan as evidenced by the above cover), so it may be interesting to see how it works in motion.
Secondly is the interestingly named とある魔術の禁書目録 / To Aru Majutsu no Indekkusu, “A Certain Magical Index”, which promises to explore the largely uncharted territory of nun moe and nun service through fantastic magical comedy. You may not have heard of either of them, but if the anime adaptations go through that will change soon enough, I’d wager; “A Certain Magical Index” has already run the usual course of manga/novel/drama CD adaptation, so it seems likely the only direction is now to game and anime status, and Shikabane Hime has plenty of volumes already out, so its success seems to have been established.
