CLAMP, I.G to Collaborate on Blood-C Original Anime

CLAMP to create story, designs for latest Blood anime from Production I.G; manga also planned

The May issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine is announcing on Saturday that the anime studio Production I.G and the manga creator quartet CLAMP are collaborating on a new Blood original anime called Blood-C, which will launch this July. Clamp is creating the story and original character designs, and Production I.G is handling the animation.

In addition, Ranmaru Kotone (Diasta of Ultima Thule, Toki wo Kakeru Shōjo: Tokikake-) will adapt the project into a manga, which will launch in the July issue of Shōnen Ace on May 26. The official website for the project will open at the www.blood-c.jp address, which was registered by Aniplex.

The Blood vampire anime franchise began with Hiroyuki Kitakubo and Production I.G's Blood: The Last Vampire film, in which Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, The Sky Crawlers) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East) created the story and screenplay. The film inspired Jun'ichi Fujisaku's Blood+ television series, Chris Nahon's live-action film remake, and several manga spinoffs.
