Adaptation based on seinen manga by Tetsuya Imai hits Japanese TV in 2017
We're late, we're late, for a very important date: Japan is going to journey down the rabbit hole in 2017 with a TV anime adaptation based on Alice to Zouroku ("Alice and Zouroku"), a "flower-filled fantasy" seinen manga with fantastical elements.
In Alice to Zouroku, many children were trapped as test subjects in a secret laboratory as part of an experiment designed to make wishes come true. A young girl named Sana manifests a power called "Alice's Dream" which allows her to alter reality with the power of her imagination. Sana escapes from the lab and befriends an elderly flower-shop owner named Zouroku Kashimura, who tries to teach her how to use her power responsibly.
The original Alice to Zouroku manga is serialized in Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Ryū seinen manga magazine. No further details about the TV anime adaptation - such as the cast, crew, and release date - have yet been published, although an official website is now available online.
