New Kanokon Anime Reportedly in Planning Stages (Season 2)

Posted on: June 29, 2009

The August issue of Gakken’s Megami Magazine will reportedly announce on Tuesday that a new Kanokon anime project is in the planning stages. Just as in last year’s Kanokon television series, Atsushi Ootsuki will direct the animators at Xebec on the new project. Series script supervisor Masashi Suzuki, character designer and animation director Akio Takami, and the cast led by Mamiko Noto, Ayako Kawasumi, and Miyū Takeuchi will also return. The copyright notice in Megami Magazine lists one of the project’s rights holders as the “Kanokon R Production Committee,” but the name of a production committee does not necessarily reflect the finalized title of its anime project.

Both anime projects adapt Katsumi Nishino and Koin’s Kanokon romantic comedy light novels about an ordinary boy with two female schoolmates — who happen to be fox and wolf deities. The North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment had announced in September of 2006 that it would be translating the original light novel series into English.
