No, this isn't an April Fool's joke. This appears to be the first major SB project of the year, should there be game news as suspected. However, for now, we'll be getting an anime adaptation of the popular Gakuen BASARA spinoff manga!


The crew includes:
Director: Ohara Minoru
Character Design: Takada Haruhito
Studio: Brain's Base

And naturally it's being supervised by YamaD and KobaP. Hoshi and Nakai reprise their roles as Yukimura and Masamune.

The premise:
BASARA Academy's ace baseball star Date Masamune and soccer club president Sanada Yukimura are doing battle today.

The next, Student Body President Toyotomi Hideyoshi has been suspended, leading to a conflict to see who will succeed him. Will it be Tokugawa Ieyasu preaching of bonds, or Ishida Mitsunari who wishes to see Ieyasu be overthrown?

Every day, another event just like this, an outbreak of honor, love and passion!

Will there ever be a peaceful day at BASARA Academy?

YES ! I'm so glad that it's not an april fool's joke, i was hoping for a new anime to come out. I would prefer on Mame Basara but for the few translate chapter that i read Gakuen Basara is quite entertaining.

The manga seem to be popular enough since there are the 10th (i think ?) volume that came out a few time ago, i hope that the anime will be popular enough to revitalized the franchise enough to produce a new ambitious game.

Interesting. Never played any of the games, but maybe one day, the same crew that does this anime can adapt Dynasty Warriors as an anime. I think that Romance of the Three Kingdoms had an anime back in the 1990s, but other than that, there's really been nothing else. Maybe they could make an anime set during that era and call it Dynasty Warriors with all the crazy fighting. That would be nice.

Unexpected, but very welcome!

I almost wonder if the focus on Gakuen may be a thing for the games, as well. I remember some of us joked about a Gakuen game that took after Rival Schools when the manga became a thing. I'd still be down for that, as a way to give BASARA spinoff that wouldn't replace the main games! :hehe:

Thankfully it seems like they won't if the splash art is an indication.

Also yooooo Rival Schools revival on the form of Gakuen BASARA would be simultaneously awesome and saddening, lol

Wasn't there Shigezane present in this manga? Or was it another Basara manga set in the modern setting?

Thanks for the signature, A?i Dahāka!

That's in Dokugan manga serie, in Gakuen Basara there are only the character of the game, no original character.

I'm curious about the chapter that will be adapt, will it be only the volume 1 and 2 or a mixing of all the volume (but of course only the chapter where Hideyoshi and Hanbei are not involved or only in flashback form).

I hope they will keep all the absurd situation and even take it to the extreme since this serie make no sense for the start.

Hey, at this point, it's pretty much the only way I could see a Rival Schools style game getting made at all. :hehe:

At least Hideaki Itsuno could likely still do great work with Gakuen BASARA. He's never worked with the series in any fashion before, but I know he at least is a fan of Kanbei. :kurokan: :kurokan:

All I'd ask is to have Batsu and Akira as guest stars from "other schools dropping by to say 'hey'."
