According to Shogakukan, Kuroi Ransuke's novel "savannaGAME" was announced to get a TV anime adaptation. It will be aired in 2012.

Shibuya Kazuya is a 24-year-old man and has been living a dull life as a part time worker. One day, he receives a strange e-mail, which invites him to a killing game approved by the government. The surviver will win ten billion yen. Kazuya decides to join the game with his friends Jin and Mafumi, but the game turns out to be far more insane than he expected.

The lack of news for a long period of time seems to suggest that it has been cancelled. Kind of a bummer, as I was looking forward to it. At the same time, I haven't really seen any clear indication that it has been cancelled, which is kind of annoying. Wouldn't they at least let you know if it was cancelled?

This is really killing me. I've been looking forward to this for months. Why would they cancel it? It seems like all the good stuff gets cancelled, while next season is mostly stuff I'm not interested in.

Looks like the manga or novel is being reprinted. But nothing about the anime itself..

I think it might be cancelled as well. No news of this at all for months since the announcement.

This thread is pretty old, I think it may have been cancelled but if someone has any other information I'd like to know too. I was interested in this too.

Just like a lot of other people commenting on this thread, I'd really like to watch this one. I'm just curious if it's delayed or canceled. So if anyone has information about this or if someone knows where I can get updates on this. Please reply to me! :) Thanks in advance.

Another survival game like Btooom!, at least they how change the weapons of killing.

Yep! :D I liked Btooom!. It was a fun show. It has flaws, but I enjoyed it.

The Novels website hasn't even been updated since last Summer. Its just speculation that guy is making.. I think its safe to say its a dead project.
