The online stores Honya Town and Rakuten Books have posted the cover of NisiOisin's Maniwa-gatari novel, which announces that an animated version of NisiOisin's earlier Katanagatari light novel series has been green-lit. The 12-volume historical epic centers on Shichika Yasuri, the seventh generational head of the Kyotō-ryū school of martial arts in medieval Japan. He and his older sister Nanami live on an isolated island, until a military advisor named Togame tells him of the final 12 swords forged by a legendary swordsmith. At Togame's bidding, Shichika embarks on a journey to find all 12 of the swords.

The illustrator Take draws the artwork in the novels. Kodansha published 12 volumes in the novel series — one for every month of 2007. Maniwagatari is a spinoff from Katanagatari, and it focuses on a side character named Maniwa-ningun. NisiOisin's Bakemonogatari supernatural comedy light novels are also being animated. NisiOisin is known outside Japan for his Death Note: Another Note novel spinoff and xxxHOLiC: Another xxxHOLiC spinoff short-story collection.
