Kyoto Animation is staying busy these days! Hot on the heels of their release of Violet Evergarden to Netflix earlier this year, the studio has revealed that they will be adapting to animation author Hiroshi Yuuki’s 20th Century Electric Catalog (20 Seiki Denki Mokuroku) novel.
Now, let me tell you that this is going to be good. How do I know? Because it won an award in Kyoto Animation’s annual awards. You know… the awards that are rarely ever actually awarded? In 2017, this particular novel won the “Encouragement Incentive” award.
Set to hit store shelves on August 10, the story of the novel takes place in the summer of Meiji 40 (the early 1900’s). The heroine is a young girl who is constantly reprimanded by her father so she takes solace in her prayers to Buddha.
One day, her father brings up the idea of marriage which the girl is completely against. The only way to save herself from the marriage is to team up with an odd new boy in town who believes that the coming age will be one of electricity.
No other details were announced about the anime such as format, release date, cast or crew.
