But one day, a strange virus starts making people commit suicide during that week. Taisuke witnesses one of these suicides and very oddly is gifted suddenly with a strange ability. He soon finds out that Hirose has left school, and Megumi has been kidnapped. In order to find his friends, Taisuke sets out on a journey. But he encounters people like him, who have abilities, and the mystery of these people and the virus slowly starts to unfold....
The English title for this series is "Alive: The Final Evolution", it seems.

Spoiler for covers:

I've had interest in the manga for a while, but I haven't got to read any of it. But it does seem potentially interesting/fun, with superpowers and everything. Anyways, looking forward to this anime, and maybe the manga, if I can get it.

I wonder if volume 15 of the manga (which will be out on June 17th) will have an obi strip with "anime-ka" written on it (that could possibly be how people found out that it's getting animated; some bookstores get the manga tankoubons before other bookstores, and oh you know...).

Anyway, we'll know soon... other than MoonPhase's anime list, I can't find any other source confirming the anime adaptation >_<

The manga is pretty good early on but then it goes to typical shonen fluff stuff which is dissapointing. But the last chapter I've read is ch. 13 so who knows if it got good again, I mean there are 15 volume right now.

Yes, that's a very important piece of evidence.

Confirmed, I guess.

Never read the manga, know next to nothing about it, but with good staff behind it this could be interesting.

Well good news, loved this manga, been reading ever since the first release. It is true there was a huge drop in storyline after the "final battle".... But just believe in it!! Like Gantz

GONZO and AIC are doing this?! This just lowered my expectations.
What's sure is that they didn't do a good job with Special A (which I've almost dropped), I hope they'll do better with this but I'm not too confident, although Hiraike pulled off a good series with Sketchbook.

i don't think s.a's problem is the studios themselfs,
i think if anything its more of i director thing as the animation is ok and all that, so that means people are doing what they are supposed it's just not being made in a way that makes it interesting..

With how the animation looks for SA to me it shows that the anime may have been rushedb before SA both GonzoXAIC have done a good job with the anime they both collaborate on. Anyways good news is the director not being the same person that worked on SA and also here's already done an anime with both collaboration of GonzoXAIC called Solty Rei which I liked it was nothing special but it was still good to watch and the animation was pretty steady through out the series.

Its going to be pretty interesting how they go with this. Maybe they will stop at the "final" battle.
