Hiroshi Negishi, the co-creator of the Saber Marionette franchise and the director of such anime as Tekkaman Blade and Tenchi Muyo Movie 1: Tenchi in Love), announced last week that he is formally establishing a new anime studio called Zero-G. According to the staff, the new anime studio is inheriting the knowledge and skills of Zero-G Room, an anime studio that produced many titles during the 1990s and early 2000s.
The new studio's website lists two creators in its staff so far. Toshinari Yamashita was the character designer for Amazing Nurse Nanako, Burn Up W, Divergence Eve, Misaki Chronicles, and Shadow Skill. Hiroyuki Ochi directed the Armitage III anime franchise and Sol Bianca: The Legacy, and he also designed elements for Armitage III, Tenchi Muyo! GXP, and Explorer Woman Ray.
