"Lychee Light Club" To Be Adapted Into Anime Series - UPDATED

Adaptation of Usamaru Furuya's remarkably trangressive manga will be hitting Japan this October.

If anyone ever tells you that anime is a staid pop medium, just going for the lowest common denominator with 2D girlfriend harem shows, feel free to point out that they're now making a TV anime adaptation of Usamaru Furuya's remarkably trangressive manga series Lychee Light Club. M

 

Inspired by the Grand Guignol theatre tradition as well as the ero-guro art movement and its notorious manga inheritor, Suehiro Maruo, Lychee Light Club revolves around a group of boys who aren't handling adolescence particularly well.  They form a He-Man Women Haters Club secret society. They build a girl kidnapping artificial man. They begin engaging in intra-group intrigue... All of which is bound to, and does, end in truly gruesome fashion.


Vertical has released the manga in North America.


The adaption will be hitting Japan this October.
