It has been announced that Ougyo Kawashigi's "Jinsei" will be receiving an anime and manga adaptation. Details of the anime adaptation will be made available at a later date.

Synopsis
Yuuki Akamatsu, who is in the Kyuumon Gakuen Second News Club, is asked to become the counselor of the club immediately after joining the club by Ayaka Nikaidou, the club leader. Three girls currently give advice to issues sent in by the students: Rino Endou from the science stream, Fumi Kujou from the literary stream, and Ikumi Suzuki from the sports stream. However, the three always have different opinions and cannot get their views to agree, so they just try things out anyway...

Almost thought the team rejected this because the announcement only said A??me adaptation. ;-) It is good that IEEE followed up with the actual announcement of an anime adaptation in his twitter.

Anyway, great news indeed.

BTW, for the title of the news thread, "Anime Project for Ougyou Kawashigi’s ‘Jinsei’ on Green-lit" reads a bit odd. Should it be "is Green-lit" instead?

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.

Is the synopsis ok? It still feels weird for me even though I edited many times.

Ooh goodie. An ecchi show where some dude solves the problems of a bunch of girls.

That's new and interesting.

Perhaps "female students" are repeated too many times? And the translation of last two sentences ("He is currently helping out three different female students: Rino Endou the Science course female student, Fumi Kujou the literary course female student, and Ikumi Suzuki the PE course female student. The ideas are not always consistent that they have to try every solution together") is not quite correct.

生徒たちから寄せられた悩みに答えるのは、理系女子の遠藤梨乃、文系女子の九条ふみ、体育会系の鈴木いくみの三人。三者三様の意見はいつもまとまらずに、とりあえず実践してみることになるのだが……

Translation:

Three girls are currently giving advice to issues sent by the students: Endou Rino from science stream, Kujou Fumi from arts stream, Suzuki Ikumi from sports stream. However the three always have different opinions and cannot get their view together, and so they just try things out anyway...


Seems the guy is joining the three girls in the counseling team, and definitely not about him helping those 3 girls.

Read my translation first, which has the correct translation from the Japanese synopsis.

Hmm, the premise sounds odd but I'll give this a try likely. Looks like it won a reward though.

Jinsei=life? And counseling teams. So life counseling probably. It could go any way I guess.
And it just started last year. This seems like a promotion for the LN.
Just noticed the illustrator is Nanase Meruchi from Nama Cream Biyori. No wonder the cover art looked familiar.
I'll give this a go perhaps when more details come out.

One thing: In my translation I follow the Japanese notation of putting the surname first and given name second. In tsubasalover's translation, she uses the notation of putting surname last. So currently the synopsis has a mix of two notations. Using my notation, Yuuki Akamatsu and Ayaka Nikaidou would be Akamatsu Yuuki and Nikaidou Ayaka respectively. Whichever notation you decide, I think it is best to keep the name notation consistent.


Also, the following statement in the first post is not correct

""Jinsei" is Kawashigi's debut work after receiving the Special Recognition Award at the Third Annual Shougakukan Light Novel Awards."

What the blog article said is Kawashigi debuted with 邪神大沼 Jashin Oonuma which won the Special Recognition Award at the Third Annual Shougakukan Light Novel Awards. Jinsei is NOT his debut work and it did NOT win any award.

But I'll wait for a PV as always.

If it has as much ecchi as Yu-sibu has, I'm out though.

No Jinsei did not win any award. His previous work, which is his debut work, won a lesser award (special recognition award) though.

Yuu-shibu is actually fairly light as ecchi series go. There's a lot of it, yes, but it's not particularly heavy ecchi stuff.

Alright so the first three volumes are the three girls mentioned. so i take it that the ones on volume 4 & 5 will be in the same club as well because their outfit matches the first three unlike the one on the 6th volume.

Aww man. Another simple tale of a guy and several girls around him. The premise couldn't have been more obvious, could it?

Well, why not? Despite the run-of-the-mill premise and insipid set of characters, i might have to give it a try after all. Hell, Oregairu basically sets itself off with the very similar concept and i completely dismissed it at first, and yet it managed to blow my mind completely. Who knows that this one might be able to pull off the exact same thing?

Otakus never get tired of looking at character designs that looked almost the same, in most of the case, girls. As for me, sometimes I can't even tell who is who.

Probably because you already have the image in your cache. The site may not allow hotlink, so for those people who did not see the pics from the actual website but just clicking the links you provided the site would reject the request to show the pic. So those links only work for you. I doubt they work for any other people.

What is enough or what is not enough? We have more anime nowadays compared to even just several years ago, and added to past archive of anime, I doubt you even have enough time to check every anime around (or even just what is available every year). And may I ask where you get the idea that this LN/anime feature Lolicon? Or it is just your prejudice at work here??

You know, since I read Japanese I actually went around and checked what the LN readers said about the LN (instead of jumping to conclusion like the gentleman above who concluded that this must have to do with lolicon when the very limited information does not even show or mention any loli).

What I got is: It has zero romance, but a lot of character interactions in discussing "issues". Most people put it in "kuukikei" or "datsuryokukei" which means it is a laid-back SoL humor type of genre.

Because they look different to them. Someone who is not into, say, mecha design could say something like otakus never get tired of looking at mecha designs that looked almost the same, but I am sure those who are into mecha can tell the differences of one mecha from another.

The synopsis makes the mouth water anyway. I can not wait to see what it can give ^ - ^
J'ai toujours eu ce sentiment un peu étrange d'être comme extérieur à mon corps. Cette impression de flotter quelque part au dessus, ou d'être dans une salle de cinéma, assis au fond, en train de regarder un long film interminable et à attendre que quelque chose se passe. Cette impression de lutter pour devoir rester éveillé, cette envie d'attraper le personnage principal pour lui dire de se bouger, sans cependant pouvoir rien faire sans briser l'écran.
