Quiz Contest Manga "Nanamaru Sanbatsu" Buzzes In with TV Anime
A TV anime adaptation has been officially announced for Nanamaru Sanbatsu, a seinen manga by Ikura Sugimoto about a team of high school students who compete in quiz contests. As Crunchyroll previously reported back in August of 2016, an unspecified “media adaptation” for the series had been announced earlier.
No further details about the production (such as the staff, cast, and release date) have yet been announced, although manga author Ikura Sugimoto did share a new image celebrating the announcement on her Twitter page. An official website for the series has also been published.
The original Nanamaru Sanbatsu manga is serialized in Kadokawa’s Young Ace seinen manga magazine. The story follows Shiki Koshiyama and his fellow quiz club members as they compete in contests where they have to buzz in with 7 correct answers (without incorrectly answering a total of 3 questions) in order to win.
