Xebec to animate Jun Mochizuki's gothic action mystery manga

The Japanese TBS broadcaster's website for the anime version of Jun Mochizuki's Pandora Hearts manga has begun streaming a promotional video. The video was previously shown at last month's Comic Market 75 event in Tokyo. Takao Kato (Buso Renkin, Compiler, To Love-Ru) is directing the animators at Xebec on the project.

The gothic action mystery manga centers on Oz Bezarius, an heir to one of the four great duke houses of a fantasy land. His life changes completely at his coming-of-age ceremony when he is thrown into the Abyss prison. Then, a "Chain" creature in the form of a bloodstained black rabbit named Alice helps him escape and he gets involved in a mysterious group called Pandora. The manga has been running in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine since 2006, and the seventh compiled volumes was published last month.

Errata: This article originally stated that Pandora's Hearts is a "supernatural action comedy." The title is in fact a mystery, and is more appropriately described as gothic. ANN apologizes for this error.
