Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!
I was just looking at ufotable's website (they did the anime for 2x2 Shinobuden, Dokkoida, and Futakoi Alternative) to see what they're working on now, and the only thing listed under "current works" was something called "Manabi". Unfortunately the Manabi site is all Flash-based and since I'm kanji-impaired I can't run it through first glance it looks kind of like Ichigo Mashimaro, but does anyone know if this is going to be an anime series?

Manabi Straight!

Manabi Straight! is based on a manga thats serialized in the young men's manga magazine Dengeki Daioh.

For now there are 2 volumes released of this manga.
Here are the covers:

A moe~ seinen manga.
Serialized in: Dengeki Daioh

2x2=Shinobuden, Futakoi Alternative and Ichigo Mashimaro are seinen manga that got also serialized in the seinen(young men's) manga magazine Dengeki Daioh.

Manabi Straight! is a seinen manga/anime.
Manabi Straight! is a cute moe~ manga/anime for male audience.

Genre: Seinen, Drama

Interesting--I hope it does get made into an anime series, it'd be fun to see ufotable's take on an Ichigo Mashimaro-type show. I'm probably just getting ufotable withdrawal after re-watching Dokkoida for the nth time. :heh:

And just because it hasn't been said enough yet....


:D :D

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to it. UFOtable has a decent track record.

The anime based on Manabi Straight! manga will be called:
がくえんゆーとぴあ まなびストレート!
Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!

From Anime News Service:


Manabi Straight To Be Animated
According to the July, 2006 edition of Media Works' Dengeki Daioh magazine, UFOTABLE has announced it will adapt the moe, seinen manga Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! to animation. The manga, serialized in Dengeki Daioh since October of 2005 is illustrated by Taatan Check with story by UFOTABLE. There's been rumblings of this project getting off the ground for several months. In the past, UFOTABLE was responsible for the seinan / moe themed 2x2 Shinobuden, Dokkoida, and Futakoi Alternative animations. A few staff confimrations were also reported by the magazine such as Story Director Ryunosuke Kingetsu (Tales Of Phantasia), Visual Director and Character Designer Atsushi Ogasawara (Galaxy Angel A, Z), Layout Director Takahashi Takuro (Futakoi Alternative), Tech Director Takayuki Hirao and Key Animators Miura Takahiro and Kadekari Mutsumi. Additionally, the lead role of Manabi will be voiced by Horie Yui (Orphen-Fiena, Love Hina-Naru Narusegawa).
Wow Wow Wow :eek: finally a news site that said this straight: moe, seinen manga Yay! :D

So cute >.<

2x2=Shinobuden and Futakoi Alternative are both moe~ seinen manga that got serialized in the seinen manga magazine Dengeki Daioh.

A ufotable series, and Horie Yui as Manabi--I'm looking forward to this even more now :D

So is this series going to start airing sometime this Fall season? UFOtable has done well animated series looking forward to this series. :)

Gakuen Utopea Manabi Strainght

Production Company: Ufotable

Genre: Comedy

Expected Release Date: January 2007


I have a good feeling about this although this is the first time I have heard about this title! The story is based on a manga by Atsushi Ogasawara which is serialized in Comic Dengeki Daioh. The animation director for the series is going to be Atsushi Ogasawara who will also be doing the character design for the series. The opening and the ending theme song will be performed by Megumi Hayashibara. The synopsis in the following is taken from animenfo:
The story takes place in 2035, 30 years later from now. Because of the number of children decreases, many schools are in peril of continuance. A student transfers to such a lifeless school, “Saio private high school”. What kind of wind will this active student, Amamiya Manabi, bring to the school?
Will be looking forward to it! :)

NeoSam 2006-11-12 15:10

This is based on a seinen(young men's) moe~ manga.
The manga is serialized in the seinen magazine Dengeki Daioh.

But there's already a thread for this anime, its here:

monir 2006-11-12 15:13

Crud! Search didn't yield anything, but I didn't search with "manabi" either. Thankfully, a mod will soon merge this thread with the other. Thanks Neosam!

NeoSam 2006-11-12 19:16
