Ryo Katsuji, Aki Toyosaki star in mystery anime from Fullmetal Alchemist staff

The official website for Seiji Mizushima and Bones' upcoming anime Un-Go began streaming a 30-second commercial on Thursday. Mizushima and Bones previously worked together on the first Fullmetal Alchemist anime series.

In the story of Un-Go, Shinjūrō Yūki (Ryo Katsuji) and Inga (Aki Toyosaki) work together to solve mysteries in a near future timeline. The story is based on the works of Ango Sakaguchi (Aoi Bungaku Series' "In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom"), a post-World War II Japanese novel and essayist. Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, Martian Successor Nadesico) is writing the scripts, and pako (Scarred Rider Xechs) and Yun Kouga (Gundam 00, Loveless, Earthian) are handling the character designs.

The official website also revealed earlier on Thursday that "Un-Go episode:0 Inga-ron" (Un-Go episode:0 Inga chapter) will not air on television, but run in Japanese theaters for two weeks only. Starting with Un-Go, Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block is expanding to 15 stations — the largest expansion of the block so far.

The Un-Go anime will premiere in October 13.
