3 More Light-Novel-to-Anime Adaptations

Posted on: February 10, 2011

Dengeki Bunko announced today that three of their light novel releases -“Rou Cube”, “Kamisama no Memo Chou” (“God’s memo pad”), and “Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon” (official English title “Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere”) – will get anime adaptations.

Rou Cube, Kamisama no Memo Chou, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon

Light novel heroines, unite!

Rou Cube is the heartwarming story of a boy whose high school basketball team is disbanded, but somehow he ends up being the coach of an elementary school girl’s basketball team. Hijinks, I’m sure, ensue. The main cast was also announced: Kaji Yuuki (Ganryuu in Otome Youkai Zakuro), Hanazawa Kana (Kuroneko in Oreimo), Iguchi Yuuka (Index), and Hikasa Youko (Houki in IS), among others.

Kamisama no Memo Chou features Alice, a teenage NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) detective, and Narumi, the transfer student boy who gets dragged into being her assistant. No other details announced as yet.

Finally, Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere is set in a “fantasy far east” where medieval Japan and various other countries are represented. Sunrise will be handling the animation production.

BTW, it’s not “Rou Cube”, it’s more like “Hoops Club” since “roukyuu” is an old Japanese word for basketball and “bu” is the word for club.

Vaguely interested in numbers 2 and 3, but probably pass on the first one. The basic ideas sound promising, it’ll just be the execution that makes a difference.
