A Moon Phase
report from yesterday picked up by ANN
reveals a new anime project in the works at studio Gonzo and erogame company Nitro+
(makers of Demonbane
). The show will be know as Blassreiter -genetic-, and it already boasts a pretty solid staff:
- director: Ichiro Itano (Gantz, Battle Royal High School)
- character design: Niθ (Demonbane, Neppu Kairiku Bushi Lord games), Naoyuki Onda (Gantz, The Animatrix - "Detective Story")
- script: Gen Urobuchi (Phantom of Inferno, Fate/Zero novels), Yasuko Kobayashi (Claymore, Shakugan no Shana).
A Blassreiter preview manga will also be published this December, to be written by Noboru Kimura (My-HiME, Cosplay Complex) and illustrated by Shū Hirose. But anyway... Gantz director, eh? Should be worth waiting.
