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.

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

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

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.

Why make it 4 koma??
Perhaps in Japan it is deemed the most suitable format for a slice-of-life comedy?

Why would I hate Adol?

Slice of Life and Comedy for the anime genre running in about 3-8 minutes. Looking forward to this.

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.

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.

I'll watch this most likely, just going to hope that the humor will be decent.

Sep 29, 2013 7:42 AM by Stark700

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

What is this I didnt quite get it

Sep 29, 2013 6:59 AM by Shachath

Ohh shit!!!

I just stumbled upon this manga the other day while I was adding manga on my plan to read and now it's getting an anime adaption!!!

I'll wait for this :D

Sep 29, 2013 6:58 AM by Tengai

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

Sep 29, 2013 6:45 AM by SexySanta

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

Sep 29, 2013 6:43 AM by Arurian

I wonder if Neptunia's Falcoms will make a guest appearance.

Sep 29, 2013 6:11 AM by komic

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.

Also pls no Yuki Kaji for Adol...

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.

Most likely.

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