Shoji Gatoh Plans New Comedy Novel, 'Anticipated' Works
posted on by Egan Loo
Novelist/screenwriter Shoji Gatoh outlined his plans for the coming year, including a brand-new comedy novel and some "anticipated" projects. Fujimi Shobo plans to release the comedy novel, tentatively titled Amagi Brilliant Park. It will be a "slapstick drama set in a disappointing amusement park in the Tokyo suburbs." Gatoh thinks that the formal announcement of the novel will come this summer.
Gatoh then added that among the projects he cannot talk about yet for 2013 or later, there are some works that he feels are "anticipated…."
Gatoh mentioned earlier that three of his four projects this year (besides Amagi Brilliant Park) are an additional volume or more of the Full Metal Panic! Another spinoff, series script editing on the Hyoka anime, and an additional volume or more of his Copcraft series.
