According to the official Twitter account, the fifth installment in the Kono Danshi series, Kono Danshi, Mahou ga Oshigoto desu., will premiere in 2016. It will be the first KonoDan title to be produced for TV broadcast. Soubi Yamamoto, the director of the series' previous OVAs, will return for the new TV anime.



The previous Kono Danshi titles each consisted of different character stories, but kept within the same shounen ai theme. The first OVA, Kono Danshi, Uchuujin to Tatakaemasu., and the second OVA, Kono Danshi, Ningyo Hiroimashita., were released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. The third installment, Kono Danshi, Akunin to Yobaremasu., was a drama CD released in 2013. The last OVA, titled Kono Danshi, Sekika ni Nayandemasu. was released in 2014.

@Helenus: Don't say like this T^T Love stage!! is not popular and it got full length. Hope it's a false information. Shadow chan will tell us more in the future :)

Well, it's most likely a short anime. I assume it is not reall popular enough to get a full-lenght anime.

And judging by the OVAs, the 'story' of these anime is minimalistic ---> not enough content for a long run.

Girls, I'm not sure about it but I've seen some rumors in Twitter that the show will be less than 10 minutes. Hope it's not true :(

Oh no...just 10 minutes? That's a shame.

I'm saying it's an anime that focuses on the plot, not the fanservice/sexual scenes/fetishizing.

so you are saying every fanservice anime have not story?
nope you're completely misunderstanding me at this point, bruh

Although I would prefer something with better art / animation.
