Atsushi Ogasawara, the character designer for a 2007 TV anime Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! announced "HidaManabi Project" on his official Twitter account yesterday. It is a collaboration project between Manabi Straight! and another popular anime series Hidamari Sketch. Both series started broadcasting in Japan in January of 2007 and the Blu-ray box set for Manabi Straight! and the first season of Hidamari Sketch will be released on July 25 simultaneously. So it is the best time for both production companies to work together. The details of the project has not been revealed yet, but we can expect crossover promotions between them in many Japanese media. Possibly a collaboration anime story?
