Anime producer Takayuki Nagatani (Tari Tari, Sola) revealed on Friday that Sola manga creator Naoki Hisaya and Hanasaku Iroha character designer Mel Kishida are launching the Sakura Kagura project. Sakura Kagura will be Hisaya's first all-new project in five years.
The duo is developing Sakura Kagura as an independent project at the studio Infinite. The studio's website also posted an open request for partner shops to distribute the "novel-based" project in addition to planned event sales.
Nagatani had revealed in February that Hisaya was preparing a new work.
Infinite's Tari Tari television anime series premiered in Japan on July 1.
