The popular Senran Kagura series of video games is getting the anime treatment this January. The anime will be directed by Watanabe Takashi (Shakugan no Shana, Ikki Tousen) and produced by Artland (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, Mushi-shi).
Senran Kagura will begin airing January 6 on AT-X at 8:30 PM JST.
Senran Kagura is a story of courage and love that follows five girls from the National Hanzo Academy as they train to become "good ninja" who fight for the sake of the country against "evil ninja" who are hired by corporations and corrupt politicians. All the girls are equiped with standard Ninja issue - huge wobbly oppai.
You can look at the official character page to see the girls' measurements and the measurements of their rivals. As a bonus, you can also find them in their swimsuits by clicking the button by their names^^;

The OP will be Break Your World by Sasaki Sayaka , and the ending songs will be Shissouron by Harada Hitomi , Fighting Dreamer by the National Hanzo Academy girls and Anya ha Otome wo Hana ni Suru by the Secret Snake Girl's School girls.
Oppai anime seems to be rather popular as oppai does tend to sell. Many animation production committees would rather stay in their comfort zone and dish out money on something that they know they are going to make a buck on rather than some risky history changing concept.
Are you an oppai anime fan?
