Today, at the end of this year's Grimms Notes Thanksgiving Event held at the TABLOID function room in Tokyo, it has been announced that Square Enix's Japanese fantasy role-playing game Grimms Notes will receive an anime adaptation. More information about the anime's type and duration will be revealed at a later date.

The event commemorates the game's second anniversary as well as a large-scale update with the release of the new story "Grimm Notes Repage" later this month. It was attended by 150 invited users as well as a few of the game's voice cast such as one of the playable heroes, Elena, and staff members to introduce the story, patches, and gameplay.

Grimms Notes is a smartphone game developed by Square Enix that was launched on January 20, 2016. It is available to play in iOS and Android platforms and has been downloaded for more than 15 million. Flero Games has announced in September last year that the game will be available outside Japan in the future. The gameplay revolves around the adventure of players with a given book that tells their fate in the world created by "Storytellers" and these people must fight against "Chaos Tellers" who overwrite their books with bad events.

Last year, the game has spawned two novel adaptations and a manga. The one-volume novel written by Takashi Ooizumi and illustrated by Mikine Minori was released by SB Creatives on May 13. Kadokawa has also released a comic anthology in March and a spin-off novel titled Grimms Notes: Unmei no Koishi Satachi in May.

This looks cute if anything really.

But this seems something fun in all honesty so who knows how it'll turn out. Game Adaptions aren't too great but the aren't as bad nowadays, as far as those are concerned so.

Why shitty mobile/smartphone games getting anime?!
And yet there tons of manga screaming for anime adaptations!!
Or better yet those popular Light Novel and Manga not having sequel adaptations!!!

This type of thing is not good for Japan's gaming industry. Consoles are just now rebounding after 11 years.

Is this like Re:Creators?
Anyway it's utter trash, thanks Japan. Mobile games are literal cancer.

Played the game since the first release. The story is really good (up to last, ch. 21;"All creation imaginary ward"), hence why I got anxiety with the anime adaptation would screw with the original plot (since the content is huge)

My gut feeling tells me the adaptation only until "World of Snow White" (ch. 15). From my experience of all screwed mobile games adaptation, this is kinda bad news for me.

Don't know about the game, but the cast is really good.

It'd be great if it was actually a good adaptation.
