The October issue of Dragon Age magazine is trumpeting the news that Hiromitsu Takeda's Maken-Ki! manga is slated to be adapted into a new anime. Recently, at Otakon, FUNimation announced that they'd licensed the home video rights for Koichi Ohata's (Ikki Tousen: Great Guardians, MD Geist) winter 2011 TV anime series adaptation.
From FUNimation's description of the series, which they'll be calling Maken-Ki! Battling Venus:
Based on the manga series by Takeda Hiromitsu, this romantic comedy is about Ohyama Takeru, a typical perverted teenage boy. His new school doesn’t require entrance exams, and it just turned co-ed! Unfortunately, his dreams of a happy high school life are dashed when he finds out the school is much more than it seems. All of the students wield a special item – a Maken – to unleash their magical abilities in duels! Can Takeru find a Maken that works for him? Even while trying to fit in at a new school and dealing with all kinds of girl problems?
