ANN reported back on Friday (via animeanime.jp) that Fumi Yoshinaga’s character driven manga, Antique Bakery, is getting made into a 12 episode anime series. It’s currently planned to hit late night television in Japan in July.
I know I for one am psyched by the news. I’m a huge Yoshinaga fan and look forward to seeing how her work is translated over to the world of moving pictures. With so much of her stories’ power protrayed in subtle facial expressions and an excellant sense of pacing, can an anime keep the same charm? I’m certainly looking forward to finding out.
