It was revealed on December 15, 2016 that anime director Kazuhiro Furuhashi and animation studio MAPPA will team up on a new animation project. The project was revealed on a secret website with a countdown timer, where an advertisement video of fifteen seconds is now viewable.
The advertisement video has been released on the official Aniplex channel on YouTube. The video talks about the name of Kazuhiro Furuhashi and MAPPA and it introduces some beautiful illustrations. Although it is difficult to understand what the video is saying about the product or what the story is about, the project has definitely piqued people’s interest. The production has also opened a new Twitter account to post all new information.
MAPPA has produced the currently-airing Yuri!!! on ICE and Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni, along with many other works in the past such as Ushio to Tora, Terror in Resonance, and Rage of Bahamut GENESIS. The studio has a strong reputation and is known for its high-quality work. The combination of Furuhashi × MAPPA is getting a lot of fans excited.
A stage event will be held on March 2017 at the event Anime Japan 2017. More news about the anime is expected to be revealed soon!
