A scan of the cover of February's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine shows an announcement of an anime adaptation for Hanayamata, which has run in the magazine since 2011. Details of the anime will be announced at a later time.
The cover also says that the animation studio will be Madhouse.
Read the news yesterday on my twitter page, using ANN, the key visual art are nice, I also hope that with the next Madhouse works out in January and April manages to recover and come back big. I also hope that this new series is a good standard.
Anyway thanks for the news Tsubasa! ;)
Madhouse just animeates whatever it is they animated to do.
Or did you already forget they did Photokano?
Madhouse has a poor track record with moe (Strawberry Panic, Chaos;Head, Photokano, Sakura Taisen, etc.). In fact, ex-producer Masao Maruyama reasoned that they plain "suck" at it, although he wanted to take on more shows if offered the chance.
Management has changed, so anything's possible now. Still, Atsuko Ishikawa (who worked out of J.C. Staff during the production of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo) recently echoed the sentiment that moe isn't understood by many of their employees.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me
Read the only chapter which was scanlated. It was neat. Though it seemed a bit unoriginal. It felt like so many shoujo manga I've read before with the ordinary girl wanting to be different and finding the amazing super boy....only this time, girl. I love my shoujo manga lol.
Anyway, I want to watch this but if it has yuri I don't want to. If it has as much Yuri as Kiniro Mosaic or something it's fine. But not Sakura Trick level.

Something being aimed at your demographic is a problem?
Probably what he expected is a real serious anime about dancing without moe elements.
Hmmm...maybe if it actually has a lot of dancing in it.

This series main focus is Yosakoi dance. This is a club activity series.
It's not yuri. Shoujo-ai level maybe. Its main focus is on the strong friendship between girl (not yuri!) and the dream pursuing (doing Yosakoi dance) with some medium-heavy drama from time to time. Mostly happen when the main girl and her close friend get into a very emotional fight.
Fanservice is close to none. Characters like to joke that they see each other panties when they're doing Yosakoi dance (Reader don't see them!) - That's all you'll get.
