Maple Story anime coming in October

Considering the worldwide popularity of Maple Story, I’m not surprised to see that an anime is set to air in Japan this October. However, the project seems odd for Madhouse who has made a name for themselves by releasing anime geared towards an older audience. This is the same studio responsible for Paranoia Agent, Trigun and Death Note. They do have a few titles oriented for kids in their list like Beyblade and Card Captor Sakura so maybe Maple Story isn’t too far up their alley. Either way it’s theirs and some of the characters are in the screenshot above. While the series is going to air in Japan first Nexon Group has plans to bring it to other regions including Korea and North America in the future.

  • I can’t picture that studio doing a Maple Story anime. Maple Story doesn’t really have a story. I guess that’s good because then the studio can weave it into some brain-bending post-modern story like Paranoia Agent.

  • Oh god, those concept arts are terrible.

  • Well I really love maple story the game but I really hate those character pics! Couldn’t they make it cuter like card capter sakura?

    ive seen the show after it came out its so awsome the consept art on this page looks way better in the anime but i wish it was in english or dubbed so i can under stand what they are saying……………i play the maple story game also and its sorta like……COOL…………………..i talk too much………. (sighs)

    Lol, the show sucks to the core. The concept art is just as bad as this and it does not even deserve to be called anime. Dubbing in english only makes it seem even worse, just like the typical pokemon episode, except with worse graphics. Unless ur blind, deaf or retarded, do not watch this with your eyes open.

    I can come up with a better story than this piece of trash… hell anyone can. -.-; They totally killed what Maple Story is supposed to be with this stupid show… honestly! If I ever get a maple fanfic down I’m taking it to Nexon myself… (Me lives in Cali lol XD)

    Someone fix this show please DX
