Thunderbolt Fantasy is a Japanese/Taiwanese co-production that features insane martial arts puppet action. It maynot be an anime, but certainly deserves your attention. There is a connection to anime though, as Gen Urobuchi is serving as scenario writer, screen writer, and supervisor for the Wuxia fantasy puppet show.
Now the show is getting more connected to the Japanese otaku culture, since Morning has released the title in manga form and is now publishing the title’s first manga collection. The manga is written Gen Urobochi himself, and drawn by Yui Sakuma (Complex Age).
You can see the trailer below!
