According to Newtype magazine, Mayumura Taku's sci-fi juvenile novel "Nerawareta Gakuen" was announced to get an anime movie adaptation. The director is Nakamura Ryosuke and the production studio is Sunrise. The novel was published in 1973 and four live action TV drama and two live action films have been produced.
Abeno 6th Junior high school is a high-ranked school but the morals of the school begin to deteriorate due to the stressful atmosphere. A beautiful girl named Takamizawa Michiru becomes the chairperson of the student council and controls the school through force and brainwashing. Seki Koji, one of the students, opposes to her violent ruling but finds there is a psychic boy who pulls the strings from behind.
"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine"
When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong
I for one find the synopis intriguing, mostly due to the fact that novel was published in 1973. I don't expect to find cliches of modern school anime there, at least not that much.
Sunrise is also a plus but director not so much.
I don't see a problem with anime set in high schools, I for one actually find it more interesting, and don't really give a damn if it's set in a high school or garbage dump or whatnot, though with a synopsis like that, I wouldn't be surprised if we move away from the typical school setting relatively early.
Interesting director ( Aoi Bungaku Series & Mouryou no Hako <3), Sunrise <3 and a decent plot. What is not to like?
Plus, overused settings (school theme) are either a hit or miss so what is the problem?

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.
