According to GIGAZINE, a short spin-off anime of manga "Glass Mask" was announced to be aired from April 7th. It's a 5-minute-long comedy flash anime produced by DLE.

Garasu no Kamen Desuga official website

The manga author Miuchi Suzue said she must have been exhausted and had little judgement when she approved this anime project. When she came to, the production had already been started.

The original Glass Mask is considered a masterpiece. The spin-off... well probably not.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

LOL Oh my! Poor Miuchi.

I never expected such a spin off. Wonder what kind of comedy it will be. I hope the original manga will draw attention from people again.

The longest running shoujo manga.... and often interrupted too... Wonder this also has to do with the exhaustion of the author too...
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.

Glass Mask IS a masterpiece, no doubt, LayedBack, its in your plan to watch list, hopefully you get to it one of this days.

2005 version is way better than the 1984 one. The manga even better, not for nothing its been ongoing since 1976 and holds the title of second best selling shoujo manga in history, since Glass Mask is still active its only 4 million away from number 1, hold by Hana Yori Dango.

Just for infos sake and comparison, cold-perspective sales wise:

1. Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) (54 million)
2. Glass no Kamen (Glass Mask) (50 mil)
3. Ouke no Monshou (36 mil)
4. Nana (34.5 mil)
5. Chibi Maruko-chan (31 mil)
6. Tokimeki Tonight (28 mil)
7. Asari-chan (26.5 mil)
8. Yuukan Kurabu (22.9 mil)
9. Patalliro! (22 mil)
10. Doubutsu no Oishasan (21.6 mil)

I am surprised at a comedy spin off of something as revered as Glass Mask as well. Oh well, 17 x 5 min long series will hardly do much harm. And yea, hopefully at the least it will get some attention from new fans, I doubt much, but who knows.

I honestly think it will be very hilarious.

How is it that I've never even heard of this manga until now? Wasn't expecting anything out of the ordinary when I saw the news post, but wow. I think I'll enjoy the spinoff.

Edit: Rephrased some things after realizing it was a spinoff. :P

Probably because its "old" and shoujo, last interaction was with 2005 anime adaptation, 8 years ago. Manga wise, not the most popular shoujo of the moment, but, its sales are very consistent and good. And as stated above, it has constant brakes, sometimes going as far as couple years without any new chapters.

Also I doubt its 70s art style gets the attention of contemporary fans, and its main audience its not the kind that will discuss about via forums on the net.

I would recommend the manga, its awesome.

By today's standards 61 is still young, bu yea, its not like the job gets easier, thankfully -for her- I think she is not under tight schedules.

That said, I hope Glass Mask eventually gets a proper ending, hopefully within this decade.

True, the author of Golgo 13 is 76, yet he still write the manga.

I'd also like to see a great ending of Glass Mask. Fingers crossed

A 5-min comedy parody of something that's been publishing for 27 years, I don't even care about the manga and I still find that disappointing.

Oh wait, an anime adaption already exists.. well alrighty then

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

One small mistake cost quite a lot. It would be great if it's a TV series instead

Ah i've been wanting to watch any one of its adaptations for a long while now.

Though a 5-minute-long comedy flash not so much.

Good lord. Well, I guess there's possibilities - like Wuthering Heights done in 5 mins with chibi's (ahh it's probably going to be atrocious).

I love the manga, and sincerely hope the mangaka stays alive (yes, the manga has been going on that long that it is a distinct possibility)...not only because well, I hope she lives to a grand old age...but goddamnit I want to see the end. It's on the home stretch. GO YOU BIG RED FIRE ENGINE!!!!!! (sorry Australian thing).

Manga does sell well I think (at least whenever a tankubon gets released it makes top 10). Though because it's being going on so long (more than 30 years) part of it could just be you know the mother's read it, then *their* daughter's read it etc - so it's garnered readership down generations.

Edit: Wait not 40 yrs, 36 I think?

The serialization started near the end of 1975, so it is more than 37 years by now.

as a strong fan of the manga and 2005 anime i have doubts about this :/ how do they imagine to bring comedy into this beautiful and somewhat serious/deep manga? even the mangaka disapproves of it...
i will watch out of loyalty to glass mask but i am very scared.

lolwut? i was briefly excited to see there was something new with the glass mask but this doesn't give me any sort of high expectations of anything good. i would have rather loved to see a second season to the 2005 adaptation. one of these days, i will get around to reading the manga though!

Well it can work honestly, dont see the big issue, its a spin off comedy series, its not necessarily related. Its like those chibi version of some anime. PLkus it can easily pass as a stage play.

But yea, again, its surprising that this got the comedy ver, it would be more normal in other kind of series, so yea, kinda strange.

It would be interesting to see, we just dont need to take it seriously or see it as a profanation of the series.

They are also doing it with Fist of the North Star - so I would say it's a matter of time.
Chibi version of LOGH, that would be interesting.

For Hokuto no Ken is not strange for that kind of series, theres already chibi ver, is way too strange for something like Glass Mask, so it would be for LOGH or Rose of Versailles, for glgo not that much, this can be seen as some form of tarnishing the reputation of venerated, beloved and classic -also extremely serious- series.

I get the feeling that is the reason the mangaka is having second thoughts about letting Glass Mask being used in such a way.

Rose of Versaille might not have a comedy anime, but it does have a parody manga by Ikeda Riyoko herself.
