According to the official Twitter of game company Falcom, 4-koma manga "Minna Atsumare! Falcom Gakuen" is to get an anime adaptation. The manga is a slice-of-life, comedy manga in which characters from various games released by Falcom (e.g., Dragon Slayer, The Legend of Heroes, and Ys series) come together in a school. The manga is serialized in Falcom's own game magazine "Monthly Falcom Magazine" and so far two volumes have been published. Schedule, format, staff, and cast information have not been disclosed yet.

Minna Atsumare! Falcom Gakuen 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.

Unfortunately I haven't play any Falcom game as far as I remember.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

I hope it won't be another five minute short episodes, because I would really like to see Alisa Reinford animated. I have seen her photos before an always thought she was kawaii.

FINALLLY I WAITING FOR THIS TOPIC TO BE MADE ON MAL

Seeing interactions with the Kiseki cast and Adol will be glorious. The Crossbell cast being animated at last! Hope they keep the characters as non-chibi as possible. Doubt we'll see Alisa and the Sen cast animated as they'll probably start with vol 1 of the 4 koma.

Also pls no Yuki Kaji for Adol...

But she is a main in the 4-koma. What the point of animating a 4-koma if they don't add all the main characters in it to the animated version? that would seem kind of stupid to me.

If they do volume 2 which I'm sure they will then I would assume so.

Ugh I hope to god the comedy won't be as bad as Tales of Gekijou. Also seeing how this takes characters from non-localized games I don't see how anyone is going to be able to catch the references.

His voice is actually decent if he doesn't play the faggot mc role. Listen to his Josuke Higashitaka voice in the Jojo's All Star Battle game it suits him pretty well. Hate the character, not the voice actor.

It doesn't sound that interesting tbh. I'd be willing to watch if it's a 5 minutes short.

It's got characters from Ys and Sora/Ao no Kiseki, so I'm really excited for this!

Even though I only know Ys, I'm interested in seeing this. More Adol is always a good thing, imo.

You make it sound like as if they're targeting the anime at ppl outside of Japan too o.O

At this point, its really hard to see Ao, Zero and Sen getting localized, so I'm pretty sure that they dont really care about ppl outside of Japan getting the non-localized character references.

I assume from your post that you have more info about either the manga or anime than what was posted in the first post o:?

Anyways, I'm hoping we get some awesome Falcom soundtracks in the anime too.

Perhaps in Japan it is deemed the most suitable format for a slice-of-life comedy?
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

This got me so excited I had to change my pants.
Then I read "Slice of Life" and made a completely different kind of mess.
Seriously, Falcom, it isn't bad enough the next Kiseki is modern-anime-cliche-highschool pandering, you have to throw slice of life at us too?

What next, Vantage Master Dating Sim? Brandish 5: The Tentales of Moe? Is the next Ys going to be a harem with a personality devoid pro-
. . . uh, nevermind.

If they made the TV series of Sora no Kiseki instead, that would be great.

The article also mentions another studio: Chara-Ani (which is part of Kadokawa group). So the anime will be a joint production.
