The 2012 Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) began today in Japan, and the first report
of a new anime project announced at the event comes from studio Toei Animation. Together with game studio Nitroplus, the two companies are collaborating on an "original cinema project" titled Rakuen Tsuihou: Expelled From Paradise
With the opening of an official website
for the project, a few core staff members have been named: director Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist
, Gundam 00
), screenwriter Gen Urobuchi from Nitroplus (Madoka Magica
), and producer Kouichi Noguchi.
And that's about it - no eye candy, no plot details, no nothing... Although some say the movie is planned for 2012, but I wouldn't put much faith in release timeframes announced at TAF: they tend to go awry a lot.
