The 11th issue of Shounen Sunday of 2016 has revealed that a TV anime adaptation of the manga Keijo!!!!!!!! has been green-lit.

The series is drawn by Daichi Sorayomi and has been publishing since July 2013. Nine volumes have been published so far, with the tenth volume scheduled for February 18.

Synopsis
Nozomi Kaminashi (17) is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That's why she wants to step into the world of "Keijo." Keijo is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of Keijo and bring wealth and fortune for her family?

Yeah, I've heard all that pretty often, but it's hard for me to believe that profitability has nothing to do with popularity. And action and comedy tend to be broader and more encompassing genres than ecchi.
that's not what i mean. what i mean is ecchi is not as popular as what people make it to be. but they are profitable to keep being made. even like that, being ecchi/adapted from ecchi doesn't really grant you automaticaly success. infact many ecchi series flopping each year.

Oh well. They're predictably adapted into anime then, rather than predictably popular =X

ecchi adaptation purpose is for selling more merchendise and original source which is because unknown reason, ecchi works better in this. industry is not that simple. it has ecchi > it should be animated? no, that's not ho it works. anime is less popular medium than manga. they have to consider many things before make something because it's not all about anime only. also action and comedy is much more common than ecchi.

Popular where? And I meant in general, "popular enough to be animated." Lots of good stuff with intersting genres don't get animes for whatever reason, but ecchi stuff always does, every season.

Man. Stuff like this and Shimoneta are so predictably popular. I hate Otaku and the rest of humanity. And myself.

My penis still waits anxiously for the potential hottest anime ever.......

Apr 6, 2016 9:30 PM by EcchiKingMamster

This actually beat the number of "." in "Hikaru ga chikyuu ni ita koro......"
Which is quite a feat ImO.
The synopsis is...hum... Not for me I suppose...

Will she use her boobs or her butt?! Zawa zawa... I hope it gets a sequel and they add another exclamation point to the name.

Fool. If it gets a sequel, they're going to DOUBLE the number of exclamation point.

Those exclamation points..... is this a different way to make a series title longer like Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru and Ore no Imouto ga konna ni kawaii wake ga nai? lol

Don't think I'm gonna like this but the premise sounds retarded as shit so I'll pick it up for the heck of it.

Feb 13, 2016 4:13 PM by Burger-Meister

It's only an OVA and more focused on Romance. I think this one doesn't even have a male lead.
