It was announced that "Koroshiya-san", a 4-koma gag manga about an assassin who boasts he can kill "anything", will get an anime adaptation. The anime will be made by Opera House, a flash anime studio. The manga started serialization in Manga Action in 2004 and four volumes have been published. It also got a drama CD adaptation in late 2009.

Koroshiya-san: The Hired Gun on MAL

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.

I wonder if this will be a short or a bunch of shorts per episode like other 4-koma I've seen. :|

"Kotoura-san" and now "Koroshiya-san"...

Anyway, flash anime? I'll pass.

Eh, sounds like it could go either way from the synopsis, and flash will probably put some people off. I'll try to keep an open mind, though.

Action, Comedy, Police, Seinen, and Thriller. When I hear "4-koma" only one of those genres come to mind, might give it a go.

Ia flash anime studio.

that part sounds like a "no"... Also, plot revolving around killer with comedy genre - really wonder if its any good. Might give it a try though.

If there was only the guy - that would be good. But looking at the chick from one of the volume pic's I smell fanservice overkill =_=

To catch attention of course. Before this news, did you know this manga for example?

AnimeAnime wrote about it too, but there it says it's going to be a short animated series. This animation house were the ones in charge of the Beelzebub flash animated specials.

AnimeAnime's news came at 19:18 Japan time, four hours later than the first break of news (and my post in MAL) - it does not give more details about the anime itself but it does provide more information about the studio and the director Ikegaya Ai, which is good.

Just for clarification, Moca News did not say if it will be a flash anime. And in the post I only noted the fact that Opera House is a flash anime studio without saying if this anime itself is going to be a flash anime. On the other hand, I do not think the two preclude each other: If it is a flash anime, then chances is it is likely to be a series of short anime too.

This. And he spends his daily life with his shirt unbuttoned like that! Reading through a few manga panels, he seems to be a perv. I'm so interested and hopefully drama cast will be the same. MC with dat sexy voice makes him even hotter.

I seriously need to know why the use of numbers for the anime official website. 5648 is associated with killers or assassins somehow?

From what little I read of the manga, the dog seems to be quite an important character LOL
