GOSICK Light Novels To Be Animated….By Studio BONES?
Kadokawa Shoten revealed on their website around the middle of March that the GOSICK light novel series would be adapted into an Anime. The news came as no shock to long time fans of the series, except for maybe the fact that it took this long to have it announced.
The news came soon after the English release of Volume 2 of the series by TokyoPop after a long hiatus and circulating rumors of cancellation.
While not widely reported, or even mentioned by Anime News Network, the Japanese website MoonPhase has announced unofficially that the Anime series will be animated by Studio BONES. For those unfamiliar, this is the same animation studio that has created “Fullmetal Alchemist”, “Eureka Seven”, “Ouran High School Host Club”, “Wolf’s Rain”, “Darker than Black”, as well as the currently airing series “Hero Man”.
While unofficial and not confirmed, the news isn’t entirely shocking. This wouldn’t be the first time the studio had adapted a light novel series. In 2003 the studio adapted the “Scrapped Princess” light novels (3 volumes were published in English by TokyoPop before being discontinued) into an Anime series.
A rumor had circulated that the newest issue of NewType would confirm the news officially, however, thus far this rumor has not proven true.
