From AICN Anime:

Four classic works of Japanese literature will be adapted into the 12-episode Aoi Bungaku (Blue Literature) anime television series, set to premier on October 10.

Adaptated works include:
Osamu Dazai’s No Longer Human (Ningen Shikkaku)
Run, Melos! (Hashire, Melos!)
Natsume Soseki’s Kokoro
Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s Hell Screen (Jigoku Hen)

Manga artist Takeshi Obata (Death Note) is involved with the anime versions of Osamu Dazai's No Longer Human (Ningen Shikkaku) and Soseki Natsume's Kokoro.

Obata also drew the illustrations of Ryunosuke Akutagawa's Hell Screen (Jigoku Hen), but Bleach manga creator Tite Kubo will be involved with the anime version of that novel.

Manga creator Takeshi Konomi (The Prince of Tennis) will be involved with Dazai's Run, Melos! (Hashire Melos), which was already made into a 1981 animated television special and a 1992 animated film.

Animated versions of No Longer Human? Of Kokoro? Of Hell Screen? Sign me right up.
