Manga About Hideaki Anno's Life Gets Flash TV Anime Adaptation

Hideaki Anno is a name that will be easily recognized by Anime fans as the director of series like Evangelion KareKano and Gunbuster, and if you ever were curious about how his life was, well, now you can do that.

It was officially announced today that a 13-episode TV anime adaptation of Moyoco Anno's autobiographical essay manga Kantoku Fuyuki Todoki is set for April 3 premiere in TV Tokyo's anime support program AniMusu!. The manga was serialized in Shodensha's Feel Young from April 2002 to December 2004 and the one-volume Tankobon was published in February 2005. It focuses on Moyoco Anno's married life with her husband Hideaki Anno, who is best known as the director of Evangelion, Kare Kano anime series and also a deep otaku. Kantoku Fuyuki Todoki is translated as "Insufficient Direction" in Japanese, but of course it has a double meaning with Anno Hideaki's profession, kantoku (film director).

The Anime will be 3 minutes long per episode and will be produced by DLE. Despite his recent appearance as a voice actor in Ghibli's latest movie The Wind Rises, Anno will not voice himself, instead Kouichi Yamadera (who voiced Ryoji Kaiji in Evangelion) will play the role. As for Moyoco the chosen for the role was Megumi Hayashibara (who voiced everyone else in Evangelion [just joking, but almost]).

I'm really curious about this one.
