Kandachime Scores Anime-Style Eyecatch

Speculation on speculation and a cute video to boot.

Moon Phase points to a blog post from Media Factory's Comic Alive where they talk about several current anime adaptations of its manga titles, including Queen's Blade, Tears to Tiara, and Phantom.

While I was scouring through the info trying to get that larger copy of the cover to confirm that there was nothing new, I happened to stumble upon the official Comic Alive website, which links to an eyecatch-- you know, those short animations that they do before and after the commercial break –for a series called Kandachime. And it turns out they've actually done three of them over the last week or so.

Kandachime revolves around a slacker named Takuma who, surprise of surprises, stumbles upon a mysterious girl who he decides to follow. There, the girl-- Otowa Hagane –takes part in a battle over a unique sword called “Kandachime,” which can become human. When she seems about to lose he steps in to help, and of course, things get wacky from there.

  

  




Now, mostly I just wanted to post the eyecatch and mention the series because it sounds cute and the videos are adorable (I like the last one). And they're PROBABLY just being used as basically commercials. But one can't help but wonder if perhaps the series is being considered for an anime adaptation...
