First Visuals Released! Special Trailer To Air At AnimeJapan2016
The highly acclaimed Monthly Comic Alive publication, Taboo Tattoo, has an anime in production and will begin airing in July 2016. The first set of visuals for this anime have been released.
The Taboo Tattoo anime is an adaptation of the popular comic serialized in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Alive. Series writer Shinjirou is known for his orthodox action writing and is a household name for his work on Fate/Zero. Taboo Tattoo, the “superpower battle action” manga, is the latest of his works to come to fruition.
The first visuals released show one of the series’s main characters, and the catalyst for much of the story, the mysterious girl Bluesy Fluesy. She is shown above the camera, with a glowing symbol hovering over her left hand. This symbol is a key item throughout the series. Stay tuned for further details.
In addition to the first visual, the official website also features special commentary from series creator Shinjirou.

Comments From Series Creator and Supervisor Shinjirou
This is the anime we are working on:
It’s raining sharks. Tomatos are bringing about the apocalypse. A mysterious masked wrestler plots world conquest. An unmissable scene of a beautiful female ghost doing the traditional Obon dance… topless!
Meanwhile, the main character has jumped into a pile of toxic waste. How to clean all of this up?
Backed into a corner, the President of the United States pushes the nuclear button!
All of these are just ideas that have been discussed. I’ve been participating in all the scriptwriting sessions and am in charge of some writing myself. I’m really looking forward to seeing this come together! Please watch it!
Serialized in: Monthly Comic Alive (Kadokawa) to high acclaim!
