The fantasy action light novel series takes place on a continent ruled by chaos. The chaos breeds disaster, but the Lords of the continent have the power of "Crest" (Holy Seal) that can calm the chaos and protect the people. However, before anyone realizes it, the rulers cast aside their creed of purifying the chaos, and instead start to fight each other for each others' Crests and to gain dominion over one another. The novels center on Siluca, an isolated mage who scorns the Lords for abandoning their creed, and a wandering knight named Theo, who is on a journey to train to one day liberate his hometown, which is under tyrannical rule. Siluca and Theo make an everlasting oath to each other as master and servant, and work together to reform this continent dominated by wars and chaos.

Simply viewing the page is all it takes to hurtle Aya headlong into the deadly world of the Magical Girl Apocalypse.

Honda's Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san (Skeleton Bookstore Employee Honda) manga is announced to have an anime adaptation. I'm assuming it will be in 2018 since we are approaching fall 2017 anime which is the last set of anime shows for this year.
The comedy manga's story centers on a skeleton named Honda who works in a bookstore. Hilarity ensues daily in his work at the shop's manga counter.
Tsuyoshi Yoshioka's Kenja no Mago (The Wise Grandson or lit. The Sage's Grandson) novels are getting an anime adaptation. No other information is revealed as of yet.
The original story begins when a powerful wizard and sage, who has saved his world from calamity many times, comes upon a baby whom he adopts and names Shin. The baby is actually a man from our world reincarnated into the sage's world. The sage raises Shin, separated from the rest of society, and teaches him in the ways of magic. It is only when Shin turns 15 years old and sets out on his own journey that the sage remembers that he forgot to teach Shin the common sense and ways of the world. And so, with no experience at all in interpersonal communication and common society, Shin goes the capital of the Alsheid Kingdom to enroll in the capital's magic academy.
Plot: The manga centers on the brothers Ryūichi and Kotarō Kashima. Ryūichi is in high school and Kotarō is still a toddler. After their parents are killed in a plane crash, the two brothers find themselves living with the chairwoman of the Morinomiya Academy, who herself lost her son and daughter-in-law in the same accident. The chairwoman, however, has one stipulation for the brothers in order to live with her: Ryūichi has to work at the academy's daycare center as a babysitter.

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 (Toaru) was listed briefly on Animax website
Animax's Aniculbu! (Anime Culture Club) variety program posted a preview of its October 1 episode with A Certain Magical Index producer Kohei Kawase and editor/producer Kazuma Miki as guests. The preview's description briefly listed the following:
A Certain Magical Index Season 3's Broadcast Green-Lit!
A Certain Magical Index, captivating many fans since season 1 began airing in 2008 and season 2 in 2010. Over six years later, the broadcast of season 3 has been green-lit! About a decade after season 1, what kind of story will turn out?
The above passage is no longer on the program's website as of Monday.
The "Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten 2017" (Dengeki Bunko Autumn Festival 2017) event will also open this Sunday, October 1. The event will feature a stage panel for "new work announcements" (as well as a separate stage panel for Sword Art Online that teases announcements for new developments in the franchise, including but not limited to games).
Miki had said at the same event in 2015, "Lastly, there is no season 3 yet for Index. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm very sorry." Miki then bowed multiple times to the audience and even did a prostrating dogeza pose on the stage. This past spring, he asked fans at the same stage to "please wait a little longer for season 3!"
Yeah, a formal news would be nice. Nowadays, people dig through websites to find code or little blunders with accidental listings like this one here which is equivalent or so to data miners for video game news.
