The animecs TIFF program at the Tokyo International Film Festival announced on Friday that it will screen the world premiere of Yoshiki Yamakawa's anime adaptation of Sin-Ichi Hiromoto's Hells Angels manga in October. This dark fantasy, from the artist of the Star Wars: Return of the Jedi manga, follows a girl's journey to hell and back. The Madhouse animation company is producing the adaptation with character designs by Kazuto Nakazawa (Samurai Champloo, El Hazard - The Magnificent World) and monster designs by Yasushi Nirasawa (Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Hellboy film). The Tokyo International Film Festival had actually planned to screen the project last year, but the anime was withdrawn due to various issues.
