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

Note: No, it is not a new manga, as you might’ve been misled by my title. The idea is that this is a new manga to get animated and not a new manga that will be animated.

This is actually a pretty good adventure with “One Thousand and One Nights” references. :) I like the story and am really happy I will see it animated.
