GAINAX has announced an anime adaptation of the four-panel manga "Sadon-Desu" at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2013.

Sadon-Desu manga official website

"Sadon-Desu" has been serialized by Noir (the wife of Yamaga Hiroyuki, the President of GAINAX) in Weekly Young Magazine since November 2012. It's a slice-of-life about high school girls who belong to a Sadõ (Japanese tea ceremony) club.

GAINAX also announced two original anime: "Akubi wo Suru niwa Wake ga Aru," which is about a diving girl, and "Tenshi Yoho ~Strange Weathers~" which is a CGI anime movie.

The panel in the picture is too small to tell it is about Sadon-Desu.

Given there is just one volume out, it is certain that it is going to be short anime of 3min or 5min length.
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.

Way too many girl high school clubs. I don't think even Gainax can turn this cliche into something good.

I love how people asume it's generic just because it's a female highschool club...
I'm not saying this particular anime won't probably be exactly what they are expecting, but there has been countless very different anime which central theme could be framed in "XXXXX highschool club". Not to mention a myriad of sports anime are just about a certain school baseball/tennis/mahjong/whatever club. Chihayafuru is in a sense a slice of life (as well as a romance, but that doesn't make it less SoL) about a highschool karuta club, yet it's vastly different to anyof the shows you guys are probably complaining about.
Anyway.

Probably not watching this since I don't trust Gainax much... Also the drawing for some reason make me think of unpolished hentai doujins (totally random comment).

Premature? ANN reports the following:

Saito also clarified that although Gainax displayed a poster of its Sadon-Desu collaboration with manga creator Kyo Hatsuki at TAF, an anime has not been announced or green-lit.

Not sure about ANN but the national newspaper Mainichi reports this as a new anime:

SIX altogether to be precise.

The blue one to the left is named "Akubi wo suru niwa wake ga aru" which is an original anime about diving in a world with raised sea level. The one to the right is named "天使予報 the strange weathers" Not sure what it is about. There is also a panel named "Wizard the musical".

Well, it looks like everything Gainax displayed (except for Pleiades) is pretty much prototype work to solicit support. Essentially they would like to make the anime if they can gather funding.

Really, Gainax? Really? -_-

The guys who did FLCL, Evangelion and Gurren Lagann are now doing the most generic slice-of-life moe high school anime. Do the Japanese never tire of this genre? >.<

I bet they're just doing this to make a quick buck for their REAL next project!

Don't you know last year they already did a LN adaptation named Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian that many say is quite generic?

And slice-of-life high school anime.. nothing wrong about it. I don't mind seeing more of it.

Unless it's like Kotoura-san, I'm not watching it. I have nothing against girls in clubs/slice of life but I need a break from cute girls doing cute things. Which is why Kotoura-san was a very refreshing SoL.
Right now, I don't see any sense of originality in it, plus it's probably going to be a 3-5 minute anime.
If it's a full length anime I'll give it a chance though.

Symbv, you said that in Mainichi Newspaper, this was announced as an anime wheras in ANN it said it had still not been green-lit. What about the other anime Akubi o Suru?

Mainichi said Gainax is to start work on 6 titles and these include Sadon-Desu as well as Akubi wo Suru niwa Wake ga aru, the latter one being an original anime.

Well, I have yet to see an anime based on the Way of Tea (Sado) so it looks fresh to me. Just like the hiking in Yama no Susume. And I love how it mixes hiking with SoL and cute girls.

I definitely miss the days when Gainax did those larger than life mecha anime like Gunbuster, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and even Evangelion. Even Sunrise and I.G have eventually made their way back to the sort of stuff they were associated with after brief stints of experimentation. I think if Gainax hadn't lost the Evangelion license they'd have done something with it by now but with so much of the old staff and licenses gone I guess that's it. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann now seems like it will have been the last hurrah for the classic Gainax style robot anime.

Though I suppose it's always possible this isn't how it looks and it's not the laid back uneventful slice of life story people are expecting but a high kinetic energy comedy or something, which they have been known to do well with. On the other hand the whole adapting the wifes manga thing though reeks of nepotism and a vanity project and that sort of thing very rarely turns out well. I still remember when the director of Gundam Seed allowed his wife of almost no experience to write the scripts for the majority of it's sequel and how much worse it turned out for it.

edit: I just found out about it and now I can say I honestly hold higher hopes with the diving anime, which actually does sound like one of Gainax classic coming of age themed anime.

I read "GAINAX" and said "fuck yes". Read the whole OP and shook my head in disappointment.

I want some more information on Akubi wo Suru niwa Wake ga Aru, Sadon-Desu looks ok plus I don't think I have ever seen an anime about a tea ceremony club yet. Tenshi Yoho looks like it is not for me so I'll have to pass on that.

Isn't it just going to be Saeki and his crew again? Might be worth checking out if Kobayashi gets to direct an episode.

Gainax's adaptation work has never been particularly great, so is often forgotten. (with the exception of Kare Kano, but apart from that, who remembers He is my Master? Or Mahoromatic? Or Hanamaru Kindergarten?) I imagine the main announcment here is one of the other two (Akubi wo Suru niwa Wake ga Aru and Tenshi Yoho ~Strange Weathers~), which are a footnote on this news post. We don't know much about either, other than ones shares its premise with Amanchu and the other is 3DCGI.

Also, the guys who worked on TTGL left to make masterpieces like Inferno Cop as Studio Trigger.
