"Meganebu", a series of otome drama CDs produced by Studio Deen since December 2011, will get a TV anime adaptation which will air from this October. The story revolves around a group of 5 eyeglasses wearing young men and their relationship. So far, three drama CDs have been released. On July 12th, there will be an online event on Nico Nico Douga for an announcement with further details.

Studio: Studio Deen
Director: Yamamoto Soubi
Character Design: Nakajima Atsuko
Series Composition: Akao De


Story:

Souma Akira is the club president of Meganebu and he loves eyeglasses with a passion.
Kamatani Mitsuki always wears a smile on his face but his excessive adoration of Souma is leading some to see him having a double personality.
Hachimine Takuma just loves sweets and enjoys a warm and fuzzy atmosphere.
And then there is Minabe Yukiya, who is cool, shy, a bit naive and does not have many friends.
Finally there is Kimata Hayato who joins Meganebu as a temporary member and really wants to get along with everyone but instead always results in awkwardness.
The story revolves around these five guys as they go about their daily life.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

There are two "so far". Redundant.

And I'll pass on this show. Don't think I'll like it.

Otome title with glasses: an interesting combination. I would say the character design is pretty good. This is not my thing but I guess many people will watch just for the desgin alone.

Hey, glasses are cool and guys are cool. Guys wearing glasses are extra cool.

Sure why not, I'll watch it. It might be some brainless fun, here's to hoping the guys are actually funny.

Fall season sure seems to be tad bit weird.

This is soooooooooooooooooooooooo nice! I don't know why but I got so excited about megane (probably because I'm a megane fetish without knowing it myself). + the fact that NamiDai's part of the casts.

Meh, I'm not really fond of megane guys, though it has some good seiyuus... And anime without a heroine aren't that bad :D As long as it won't have one, of course.

It's not an otome. At least, there's no female character in sight so I don't think so. I think it's an SoL.

You did not read the first post close enough - it has an official website for the drama CD and it shows the character design there. Also the drama CD would have a jacket cover I presume.

symbv, I think you should edit the original post and tell people KyoAni is animating this, just to see how quickly people come and start trash talking it purely because it isn't cute glasses girls.

LOL Unfortunately based on the facts out already I do not see any trace of KyoAni's involvement. though I could find a possible link with Studio Deen (which I mentioned in the initial post).

As you can see by my name I'm a fan of glasses (and a glasses wearer) so I will definitely be checking out this show. So much good stuff in October for me: this and season 4 of Walking Dead, NYCC, and Halloween lol

Indeed it is SoL but I also put it under Otome CD category. I think it depends on what you mean by Otome. Perhaps you are thinking of Otome game where one girl may engage in romance relationship with a bunch of guys (in various routes)? From my understanding, Otome means a work that appeals to girls who find romantic appeals from a bunch of male characters in it but it does not necessarily mean there are romantic relationships shown in the work itself.

And in this Otome CD wiki, Meganebu is given an entry for example:
http://wikiwiki.jp/otomecd/?%A1%D6%A5%E1%A5%AC%A5%CD%A5%D6%A1%AA%A1%D7%A5%C9%A5%E9%A5%DECD%20Vol.1

This looks quite interesting. Nice character designs with a bunch of different types of characters wearing eyeglasses. More of a male SoL I suppose? Which is kind of rare and appealing.

Oh yes. I loved the Drama CDs and the guys are all so adorable. I never thought that this would get an anime adaptation.

This is the best news that I've gotten all year. Megane characters are the best.
