o.o Would be nice if Bakuman ended with them getting an anime and it being released in conjunction with the end of Bakuman. -is bricked- XD
I personally would like BONES or Production I.G. If BONES uses their Ouran team, it should end up pretty darn good. J.C Staff would be okay if they follow the original material, if they have the director of Toradora it should work out fine.
Shaft woud be interesting, but they should be working on KoyomiVamp for next year after the success of Bakemonogatari.
They better keep Fukuyama Jun, I can't resist Code Geass seiyuu jokes.
But, Bones will probably air and finish work with Heroman next year... I wonder what will they do afterwards... But I don't really see them doing Bakuman (I'd rather like Eureka 7 second season anyways... XDD ah dreaming's nice) ;_; I'm rooting on Production I.G., but J.C Staff would be fine indeed. 8D
Code Geass seiyuu jokes, huh? XD
...I can't imagine Saiko speaking with Lelouch's tone xDD

It's a shame the very moderator for Bakuman known as myself took so long to realise such gret news.
Please allow me to get excited.
HOLY SH*T NO F*CKING WAY
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL ANIME OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
On a more serious note, the anime has a chance of becoming an awkward representation that don't really translate well the series concept (a manga about a manga) as well as bending over some new ideas that might actually make the metalanguage work in anime form.
Like some suggested, they'll use the turn-into-anime idea to make an anime showing another. - Kinda like that play staged into Hamlet's play, or Metal Gear Solid 2 taking itself as a videogame and sh*ting over the fourth wall. It might be amusing.

So, J.C.Staff after all? Nice~ ^_^ and guys who were directing Nodame Cantabile and Honey and Clover, yay :'D I love these series. I can't wait for the next fall, then. >: D
Series Length: 25 episodes
Oh God... not another anime that ends before the manga!!
((Unless... the manga will end soon... EEP!!!))
It's like Black Cat and Elfen Lied all over again!!
I hope it'll be more than one season.
Long running manga authors simply aren't able to consistently keep the quality high; when you look at the anime counterparts, it takes the bad and makes it ten times worse.
I'd settle for a 5 part OVA if they could make it high quality. Most of the fans already know the story, they're looking to see if the anime studio can recreate the experience, which is hard as shit especially when you need to fit the plot pace into an episodic format which makes parts seem like it's dragging on and on but others feel totally rushed.
The guys who did FMA and soul eater also cut it short and apparently made shit up in their own endings (I think the studio was Bones, not sure) but despite the 1% of the audience who produced 99% of the cries of outrage, there is now the precedent that they can always go back and call re-do if they want, as long as the fanbase exists and its monetary pool talks loud enough. FWIW, I enjoyed both FMA and the remake.
But it's a battle manga where you can make things short in the anime, unlike Bakuman where it's full of dialouge that you can't skip for it's importans to the plot.
