New word on the Moon Phase streets is that Gainax is working with famed anime director Seiji Mizushima, best known for directing the original Fullmetal Alchemist, Gundam 00, Shaman King, and others, to create an anime adaptation of a manga called Hanamaru Youchien, or Flower Circle Kindergarten, literally speaking.

The manga is a cute slice-of-life comic about three adorable kindergarteners, perky Anzu, reticent Hiiragi, and space cadet Koume, and their two young teachers, Tsuchida-sensei and Yamamoto-sensei. Video game-loving Tsuchida-sensei also has a crush on the attractive Yamamoto-sensei, whose dream is to be a good mother someday. Oh, and Anzu has a crush on Tsuchida-sensei. Even though she's...what, five? Six?

The manga was created by Yuto his (her?) first professionally-published manga; but Yuto was an assistant to Pani Poni's Hekiru Hikawa, so you can definitely expect the series to be a bit more zany than my description may initially lead you to believe.

And then you team it up with Gainax? I'm pretty sure we'll have a good time in class.

@Baku_Sensei: And the chibis look like the creatures from Potemayo.
