Black Rock Shooter Gets New TV Anime in January (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
A television ad has announced on Friday that a Black Rock Shooter anime will run in Fuji TV's Noitamina timeslot in the January season next year. Noitamina producer Kōji Yamamoto and Black Rock Shooter creator huke both confirmed the news on their respective Twitter accounts.
The official website has already launched a preview page whose meta tags list the figure maker Good Smile Company, the composer Ryo, the creator huke, the anime studio Ordet, and the musical group supercell.
The franchise already inspired an original video anime, figures, and games. The artist ringo launched the Black Rock-chan four-panel manga in the inaugural issue of Kadokawa Shoten's 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine in March, and Sanami Suzuki (Net Ghost PiPoPa) launched another Black Rock Shooter: Innocent Soul manga in Young Ace in June.
Update: More background information added.
Update: Yutaka Yamamoto, the supervisor of the Black Rock Shooter video anime and the founder of Ordet, reported on his Twitter account on Friday that the new project is not his. [Yamamoto's role corrected. Thanks, EmperorBrandon.]
