The July issue (release on June 12) of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine has officially announced the Gainax studio's television anime adaptation of Yoshiichi Akahito's Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess) manga. The "Corpse Princess" of the title is Makina Hoshimura, an undead girl who hunts down 108 corpses in order to go to heaven.

Masahiko Murata (Jinki:Extend, MazinKaiser, GR -GIANT ROBO-) will direct the Shikabane Hime: Aka anime with scripts by Shō Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Martian Successor Nadesico). Chikashi Kubota, an animation director on both The Girl Who Leapt Through Time film and episode 14 and 24 of Gurren Lagann, will be designing the characters with Kikuko Sadakata, a fellow animation director on Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (episode 5, 15, 22) and Sugar Sugar Rune.
