Lain's Yoshitoshi ABe Confirms New Work is Despera

posted on by Egan Loo
Official announcement on project with many Lain staffers to be made soon

In a Thursday blog entry, manga creator and character designer Yoshitoshi ABe (Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei) confirmed reports from last month's Sakura-Con 2009 event that he is developing a new anime with many of the staffers of the Lain anime, but made a clarification on the title. The correct title for the project is Despera (ですぺら), which is derived from the shortened version of the term "desperado." He acknowledged that he was speaking fast at the event in Seattle, so his words may have come across jumbled. He also confirmed, to his knowledge, that the official announcement on the project will be coming soon.

Thank you to ChancellorOfTheExchequer and Diego Coruña for the news tip.
