Blackfox Anime Revealed as Theatrical Project Debuting This Fall (Updated)

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Update: The original version of this article mentioned that the anime is a television anime project that will also have theatrical screenings, but the anime will be only a theatrical anime project. ANN apologizes for the error.

Infinite's booth at the AnimeJapan 2019 event revealed on Saturday that Studio 3Hz's original anime Blackfox will be a theatrical anime project that will premiere this fall.

The official website for the anime describes the anime's story:

Living in a ninja residence tucked away in a corner of a futuristic city is Rikka, the eldest daughter of a Ninja clan, who looks up to her father—a researcher—very much.
Carrying on with her life normally, Rikka's home came suddenly under attack one day. Driven into a corner, what would she do to overcome this crisis?
Rip darkness to pieces and become "BLACK"!

Kazuya Nomura (Robotics;Notes, Joker Game, Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie) is the chief director of the anime at Studio 3Hz (Princess Principal, Flip Flappers, Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online), and Keisuke Shinohara (episode director for Little Witch Academia, DEVILMAN crybaby, Kiznaiver) is directing the show. Naoki Hayashi (Citrus, Flip Flappers) is the scriptwriter. Atsushi Saitō (High School Fleet sub-character design) is the character designer. Fumihiro Katagai (Princess Principal, Chaika the Coffin Princess) is the mechanical designer, and Kenji Andou (Votoms Finder, Tiger & Bunny) is credited as the Animaldrawn designer.

The anime is also receiving a live-action tokusatsu period drama set in the past (as opposed to the near-future setting of the anime).
