Gainax revealed more about a tentative anime project titled Akubi o Suru ni wa Wake ga Aru (There Is a Reason That We Yawn) at its booth at Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF). Gainax intends to air the anime for two cours or half a year, although Gainax producer Tomoko Saito (Medaka Box) informed ANN that the project has not been green-lit yet, and is still collecting funds. The project has been in the works for six years.
The pamphlet for the project describes the setting as Japan in 2093. A rural town that used to be the most prestigious town in the world has long since sunk 30 meters under the ocean's surface. The story is a tale of a girl who takes part in free diving (diving without the aid of equipment to breathe), and the emotional growth she experiences.
