Shuffle! (シャッフル!)

Naoto Hosoda directed an anime adaptation of Shuffle! that had a special prologue DVD released on May 2005 and aired in Japan on WOWOW between July 7, 2005 and January 5, 2006 in twenty-four episodes. The anime combines elements from all of the characters' paths from the game into one plot, although it differs from the game by adding some elements, such as the idol clubs formed around Sia, Nerine, and Kaede, and removing others, such as the H-scenes. The anime has now been licensed by FUNimation, and the first DVD will be released on February 26, 2008. An industry representative for FUNimation has stated that, despite rumors, the entire series will be released unedited and uncut. In January 2008, FUNimation has all 24 episodes released on their website.
A second twelve-episode anime series titled Shuffle! Memories began on January 6, 2007. It is a recap of the original Shuffle! anime, rearranging scenes from the original series into individual character specific episodes. It contains very little original content, with only the last episode containing completely new material.
