Tonari no 801-chan Anime is a go!

The inspiration for 801-chan 4-panels in the US is becoming an anime short!

From Anime News Network:

The fourth volume of Ajiko Kojima's Tonari no 801-chan manga will ship in Japan on September 10 with a "Tonari no 801-chan R" anime short on DVD. The manga follows the personal life of a fujoshi (female boys-love Otaku) and her Otaku boyfriend. Yutaka Yamamoto (Kannagi) will direct the production of the 90-second "opening anime" at Aniplex's A-1 Pictures studio (Kannagi, Ookiku Furikabutte). Yamamoto is best known for working at Kyoto Animation on The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and part of Lucky Star before being forced out of the studio. He has not returned to Kyoto Animation, but has since launched his own studio, Ordet.

For those of you that know Japanese, Amazon has the drama CDs.
