The official NisiOisin website has announced that the renowned Japanese author’s 9-volume novel series, Zaregoto, is getting its own anime project. This was announced after a countdown timer in the website reached zero to reveal the anime project.
Here is the manga’s story, according to Del Rey, which distributed the novel series in English:
It’s the vacation of a lifetime, a trip to a remote island filled with geniuses–and murder.
On Wet Crow’s Feather Island, a tiny speck in the Sea of Japan, lives Akagami Iria, the exiled daughter of a powerful family. Born into great wealth, she was a princess of the highest pedigree–until she was cut off by the leader of the Akagami Foundation. For the last five years, she’s lived on Feather Island with her maids. But she hasn’t been alone. She has invited the best minds Japan has to offer to come and stay with her.
Illustrated by Take, the novels were released in nine volumes between 2002 and 2005, and even had a spin-off series titled Ningen, which were released between 2004 – 2010. No format for this anime project, whether it will be a TV anime like Bakemonogatari, or an animated movie like Kizumonogatari, or a Web Anime like Koyomimonogatari, has been revealed thus far.
Best known for his works such as the Monogatari series, Medaka Box, and Katanagatari, NisiOisin has been noted for beatifully playing with words throughout his works, and has a reputation for using puns a lot.
