New Hidan no Aria Project To Be Revealed This Summer

Update: The project has been revealed.

The official Twitter account of MF Bunko J has announced some news regarding Chuugaku Akamatsu and Kobuichi’s light novel series Hidan no Aria (Aria the Scarlet Ammo). The light novel print revealed that a new project would be announced this Summer, where a big presentation will be held.

Hidan no Aria is a light novel series written by Chuugaku Akamatsu with illustrations from Kobuichi. The series began in Media Factory’s MF Bunko J in August 2008. To date there are 16 volumes with the 17th volume releasing on the 28th, and the series has sold over 2 million copies. A manga adaptation began serialization in 2009 by Yoshino Koyoka. A anime adaptation aired from April 2011 till June that year, and was animated by J.C.Staff. An OVA followed the series in December 2011.

Here is a synopsis from MAL:

Kinji is a junior at a high school for mercenaries. He just wants to be normal, but his secret condition—he turns into an ace killer when he’s turned on by the female form—triggers a fiery transfer student’s unrelenting desire to make him her partner.


The new Hidan no Aria project, whether it is a new light novel, or anime, will be announced next season.
