Project Blue Earth SOS

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
New Anime Adapted From the Illustration of Shigeru Komatsuzaki, Famous Sci-Fi Illustrator and Creator

Studio A.C.G.T. will produce "Project Blue Earth SOS" an OAV based on a series of illustrations entitled "Earth SOS."

The Earth SOS illustrations were created by Shigeru Komatsuzaki, and published in the 1940s. Komatsuzaki is a famous Japanese sci-fi illustrator and model designer who worked on many popular projects during his lifetime, including the Thunderbirds puppet TV series, Atragon and The Mysterians. Atragon was in fact partially based on an original, illustrated story by Komatsuzaki, "The Undersea Kingdom" (Kaitei Okoku). He also designed the ship itself. Komatsuzaki passed away in 2002 at the age of 86.

Project Blue Earth SOS will be directed by Tensai Okamura, based on a script by Ryota Yamaguchi. Character designs will be by Noriyuki Matsutake, while Shinji Aramaki and Jin Fukuchi will handle mechanical designs.

The series will be broadcast once on AT-X in July, before being released on DVD.
