A new anime got announced and its based on a picture book >.<
Picture books are usually
(from my knowledge >.<) aimed at very young children.
Shibawanko no Wa no Kokoro
Broadcast: 7/4/2006 (April 7th, 2006)
Its based on a picture book.
It serialized (yes its serialized
) in the magazine MOE
; a magazine on pop culture.
Site of MOE
Isn't that Moomin
on two of MOE
issue covers >.<
Of course its serialized and also has books out, for now there are 4 picture books out and book number 5 will be out on 4/3/2006 (March 4th, 2006)
Here are the covers:
Every book is about 60 pages.
Info from AnimeNfo
It is based on a picture book. The main character, which is a dog, teaches Japanese tradition and manners.
Why I said usually
Whats weird though, that some sites put this picture book under Picture Book for Grown-ups
are there really picture books for grown-ups
And look at what hour its going to get broadcasted: 21:45
So it seems like it is really a picture book for grown-ups
