"Maken-Ki! Two" Anime TV Series Visual

New adaptation of ecchi fighting manga coming this winter

These are busy days for the busty girls of Maken-Ki. A limited edition of the series' latest volume was released in Japan with a beach episode last week. FUNimation has a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack of the 2011 series coming November 11th. And, a second anime series debuts this winter.

 

Get a look at the new visual...

 

Ecchi fighting manga Maken-Ki! was previously adapted into a 2011 anime series by AIC, but the OAD and TV series are coming from Xebec with Hiraku Kaneko (Seikon no Qwaser) directing using Akio Takami's (Uppotte! ONA , Kanokon , Ladies versus Butlers ) character designs. Highschool of the Dead's Kuroda Yosuke will be writing.

Preview of the FUNimation release of the first series

 

Takeru enrolled in Tenbi Academy because the girl-to-guy ratio is, like, 3 girls for every guy. But this bevvy of bombshells is actually a school where teens beef up their combat skills using a magic power thingy called a Maken. Redheads with wicked high kicks, shocking blonde bullies, and aggressive brunettes are EVERYWHERE. And every time there's a brawl, their clothes tend to disintegrate.

Distracted by all the bouncy brawlers, Takeru has a hard time concentrating on his training. Things get sticky when the hornball can't figure out how to use his Maken. If he doesn't find his mojo quick, he'll be dumped by the school of his dreams-or destroyed by an attacker who's after his magic power thingy!
