According to the official website of Monthly Shonen Magazine, the anime project of Alive was announced to be canceled. The production of the anime had been suspended since the delisting of Gonzo from Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers in 2009. The producers had been seeking to resume the project but concluded to abandon the anime.

Aww shucks, it sounded interesting but it was bound to happen due to Gonzo's demise. Guess in the end sticking to moe and boobs didn't work out for them. This sounds so much better than most of the crap they've churned out recently. Such a waste...

Gonzo sucks. The only good thing they ever did was Strike Witches Gankutsuou.

FFFFU-

Damn with GONZO, I already wait this for over a year. Even until the manga ends the anime project still doesn't continue.

Oh well, I hope another studio will pick this up. Hopefully MadHouse or BONES

At least if an anime does get made in the future, it won't be Gonzo.

All that hype for nothing now.. -_- Doubt it will come through now though.

Well, to be fair, GONZO had their share of good shows. They just made TOO MANY crap shows.

Let's not forget Full Metal Panic. Well 3 out of about 50 anime just isn't enough.

So I guess this is the end of Gonzo... can't say I'm not surprised by this news.

Hopefully neither of these shit studios will lay their hands on this show.

Gonzo was the only studio that had ability to make this show right, now I'd say let the project be dead for good.

This was a triumph!

No, seriously... Gonzo did have some great shows in there and it's a pity they're gone. I'm not really familiar with the manga, but everybody I know who's read it loves it and the premise really had me hoping for something. This was going to be a quality show even if done badly so it's a shame that it's into its death throws... I'm surprised no other studios were interested, but maybe later.

I removed this from my list and considered it dead long ago. Gonzo were just delaying the inevitable.

Hardly surprising indeed. But still... bawwwwwww. The manga is just so damn fantastic, it's begging for a good adaptation and I doubt it ever will get one now that it's over and never became as popular as it should have.

Well that just mean for now we are not going to see it any time soon.

And as for GONZO, they are not totally dead yet because they are still doing awesome shit out there. It is just that they don't have the power/money to make their own anime project. I seriously want to see them back.
