Invaders no Rokujouma anime green-lit
The AnimeJapan 2014 event updated its page for “RGB Stage” events on Thursday, and revealed that Takehaya’s Rokujyōma no Shinryakusha!? (Invaders of the Rokujyōma!?) light novel series is getting a television anime this summer.
Kōtarō’s bizarre communal life has begun, and “this six-mat room is a battlefield!?”
The anime’s voice cast includes Yūichi Nakamura, Tatsuhisa Suzuki, Aoi Yūki, Ayana Taketatsu, Eri Suzuki, Harumasa Ōmori, Masumi Tazawa, and Maria Naganawa. Yūki and Taketatsu’s musical unit Petit milady is contributing their third single as the anime’s ending theme song.
Takehaya launched the light novel series with illustrations by Poco in 2009, and Hobby Japan published the 14th volume last August. Tomosane Ariike started a manga adaptation on Hobby Japan’s Comic Dangan website last December. The light novels already inspired an original promotional movie with some animated footage by director Shinichi Watanabe and SILVER LINK in 2010.
The official website for the light novel series has been teasing a “special project.” AnimeJapan 2014 will host a special event for the television anime on its Blue Stage in Tokyo Big Sight on March 23 at 1:40 p.m.
