The July issue of Monthly Champion RED (on sale June 19) announced that Blue Drop, the post-alien-apocalyptic manga from Eat-Man and Ray creator Akihito Yoshitomi, will be animated by BeSTACK and Ashi Productions for a Fall 2007 broadcast. Yukikaze director Masahiko Ohkura will direct and script an original story (under the name Blue Drop: The Drama of Angels or Tenshi-tachi no Gikyoku) that takes place several years before the current Blue Drop: We Angels (Tenshi no Bokura) manga arc. Gonzo will model the 3D animation. Source: Ultimatum
