Norn9 Norun + Nonetto

Idea Factory/Design Factory's Otomate brand announced that Norn9 - Norn + Nonette, its PSP otome game for female players, has an anime in the works. Otomate made the announcement at the "Norn9 with Ark & for Spica" event at Tokyo's Nakano Sun Plaza on Sunday. The event also announced the sale of character image songs produced by composer Kevin Penkin and a PlayStation Vita port of Norn9. (ANN)

Plot Summary:
The story takes place a little in the future. Guided by one particular song, young elementary school student Suzuhara Sorata, from the Heisei Era, is warped through a time skip to an unfamiliar place that looks much like the towns from the Meiji or Taishou period from his textbooks. In this world, he meets three young ladies and nine young men and joins them on a journey aboard the mysterious Norn ship, a giant globe that floats in midair.

Announced over a year ago, the official site is finally opened today (few hours ago):

The series is based on an otome game with a sizable character cast. The release date is still unknown yet though.

Oh man, what's with this otome double-header? Code Realize and Norn9 getting anime? These are both games coming to the west this fall as well. Otome fans will most likely be very pleased by this news.

I heard both good things about Norn9 and CR.

CR sounds like it might be more fun while Norn9 sounds angsty. But three MCs and a small group of guys for each instead of the usual 5guys + 1 girl scenario? Might be fun.

^ Might be fun, or viewers could get twelve episodes revolving around thirteen characters. Yup, that's definitely not a disaster in the making.

But I'm more interested in the fact that the protagonist seems to be a boy. It might mean we could have more of an emphasis on plot rather than the usual superficial touching upon of each character that adds little to no complexity to the show or relationships. I don't think any otome adaptation has come close to La Corda d'Oro: Primo Passo, whose anime and manga I really enjoyed; granted, it was actually given a proper number of episodes to tell its story.
