Akita Shoten opened a website on Saturday to announce that Sato's Fragtime manga is inspiring an anime adaptation. The website did not reveal any other details about the anime project.
The anime's Twitter account has been posting information in both Japanese and English, including a comment from Sato about the news.
<Sato's comment> I'm thrilled Fragtime will become an anime! I get really excited when I think of the girls' story being spun in a totally new form. Just by getting to know the amazing staff who will adapt the manga, I have no doubt the anime will be wonderful! pic.twitter.com/BdixUeyjql

The "time-stopping yuri" manga centers on high school student Misuzu Moritani. Misuzu has the power to stop time for three minutes a day. One day, she uses that power to try to peek up the skirt of her classmate, the beautiful Haruka Murakami, but the power for some reason doesn't work on Haruka, and Haruka finds out Misuzu's secret.
Sato published the manga on Akita Shoten's "Champion Tap!" manga website (now known as Manga Cross) from 2013-2014. Akita Shoten published two compiled book volumes for the series.
