Anime to premiere next spring; Kazuki Takahashi creates original story, designs

The February issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is revealing the details on the Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal anime and manga on Saturday. The anime will premiere next spring in "Golden Time" — the popular evening timeslots — on TV Tokyo and its network affiliates.

Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi and Studio Dice (Weekly Shonen Jump) are credited with the original story and the original character designs of the anime. Satoshi Kuwahara (Black Jack 21, Tezuka Osamu ga Kieta?! 20 Seiki Saigo no Kaijiken, Astro Boy: Shinsen-gumi) is directing off scripts that are supervised by Shin Yoshida (Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monster GX, Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time). Masahiro Hikokubo is credited with "Duel Layout" as he was for the previous television series. Hirotoshi Takaya (The Brave of Gold Goldran, Chōja Reideen, Eyeshield 21, Kekkaishi) is designing the characters for anime.
