Junjou Mistake and Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun Manga with Anime!

Two of the more popular manga series in recent times have been announced to become the basis of two new anime television series. The first one is Junjou Romantica’s spinoff entitled Junjou Mistake by Shungiku Nakamura while the second is Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun by Miyuki Abe.

Junjou Mistake is the second Junjou Romantica spinoff by the original creator of the franchise that will have its own TV series broadcasted nationally (hopefully internationally too). (The first one being Sekaiichi Hatsukoi.) This new work happens 10 years before the original Romantica story when Ryuuchirou Isaka is still an aspiring novels writer, but understands that his real talent is in actually finding the good creators and not being one himself. Actually, for those who are more interested in the romance side, the story revolves around Isaka and his love for Asahina, his childhood friend who, though, seems to be more interested in Isaka’s father… UPDATE: To come out as Sekaiichi Hatsukoi II’s Episode 6.

The other new anime is to come by Miyuki Abe and is called Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun. It is slightly related to the classic Hakkenden samurai novel. Depicting the challenging life and battles of a boy who survived a plague in his home village and his two companions, protected and kept alive by his trough a mysterious contract. Their fate as they need to face the badmouthing from the villagers next to the church they occupy after running away from the plague and also… the Imperial Church’s attempts to get its hands on the demon blade that contains lifeĀ  – Murasume.

Both news came from this month’s issue of Siel Tres Tres magazine by Kadokawa Publishing Group.

Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.

fixed it a bit due to being branded ‘ignorant’, which I was when writing this… obviously.

……..Hakkenden’s main character is supposed to be a boy!!!! with a girl’s name….not a girl :(


Pure Mistake? They really named it like this? LOL!!!
Well, guess not so many people care about Hakkenden… I’ve actually read some chapters and never got into it…I’m quite surprised it gets and anime. Well, good luck to it!


There’s still no date for the previously announced “Hybrid Child”, though… Believe it would’ve been crazier than this Junjou Mistake… Well, we’ll see.


Everything Shungiku Nakamura draws turns into gold… Not that I mind. The only Shounen-Ai I see some sense in is actually Junjou Romantica.


Amazing! Live the series and can’t wait for the new ones!
