The official Twitter account of Enterbrain's B's-LOG magazine confirmed that an anime adaptation project of Idea Factory's Hiiro no Kakera romance game was announced at Sunday's Otomate Party 2011 event. More information will be provided in the September issue of B's-LOG magazine, which will ship on July 20.
The first Hiiro no Kakera otome game (game for female players) shipped in Japan in 2006 with character designs by Yone Kazuki (Hakuōki), and there have been three follow-up games since. The original game centered around Tamaki Kasuga, a 17-year-old high school girl. When her parents have to go overseas for work, Tamaki moves to her mother's hometown in the mountains with her grandmother. On the day that Tamaki arrives at the village, she encounters strange creatures, only to be saved by a mysterious boy. The boy, Takuma Onizaki, is the first of five Guardians of the Tamayohime that Tamaki meets.
