News: Busou Shinki – Gets TV Anime Adaptation

According to Japanese TV station Tokyo Broadcasting System, Konami’s line of mecha-musume style action figures Busou Shinki will be getting an anime adaptation this fall.

The new anime project will be having a different staff from last year’s sci-fi action ONA Busou Shinki Moon Angel.

The slice-of-life battle story is set in a future that has neither World War III nor an alien invasion — just an ordinary future set after our current age. In this world, robots are part of everyday life, and they contribute in various aspects of society. “Shinki” are 15-centimeter-tall (about 6-inch-tall) cute partners made to assist humans. Equipped with intelligence and emotions, they devote themselves to serving their “Masters.”
