Anticipated in advance for as long as can be remembered, “Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko” has finally been bestowed with an official announcement solidly confirming it to be receiving an upcoming anime series.
The combination of popularity, premise, and serialization label, made it seem inevitable that this series would become an animation at some point or another – and such was prophesied back within March during a release of a PV for the latest light novel volume. Indeed, loooking at the combined details, the arrival of an anime is something far too obvious and not shocking whatsoever – more interestingly however, this may be the first series based after Kantoku’s art.
Yet there’s a negative spin to worry over – the production studio has been revealed as “Frontier Works”, and they’re not necessarily famous for a flawless track record of heavy hitting series, if any at all.
Nonetheless, one can simply hope for the best with this transition to anime – the source material is strong in every sense, with the plot being fantastic to go alongside the similarly, and of course splendid, artwork of Kantoku, delivered in a combination one would usually call by the term “perfect”. Assuming such is animated appropriately, then indeed, this is likely to be one of the more renowned series of whatever year it ultimately debuts within.
As the year of 2012 hasn’t much left to it, one can more than likely expect this anime no earlier than the winter season – although a spring 2013 release is perhaps the most viable.
