Kinema Citrus (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0) will handle the animation production, and Tachibana Masaki (.hack://Quantum) will be the director. More details (such as dates, and a cast, or even whether it’s a TV or disc-only release) will be coming soon, I’m sure. The game’s main characters were voiced by Kanda Akemi (Akane in Cross Game) and Saiga Mitsuki (Mina in Darker than Black).

The game, “The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky”, is set to be released for the PSP by XSEED Games in the USA on March 24.
