The July issue of Kodansha's Monthly Afternoon magazine (on sale May 25) announced that a new television anime adaptation of Kōsuke Fujishima's You're Under Arrest police comedy manga is in production. The issue also previewed artwork being drawn for the series.
Onetime Gunbuster mechanical designer and Burst Angel director Kōichi Ōhata will direct, and Natsuko Takahashi (Spiral, Gakuen Heaven) will oversee the scripts. Although Ōhata and Takahashi are new to the You're Under Arrest franchise, Atsuko Nakajima (Ranma ½, Getbackers) will return to adapt Fujishima's characters as she did for every animated incarnation since the original video series.
The You're Under Arrest manga has already inspired one video series, two animated television series, one movie, and several special installments. This third animated television series will be the first new story since the 2002 live-action television series.
