posted on by Egan Loo
The official Twitter account for the Inferno Cop project retweeted a job posting for Studio Trigger on Monday, but it did not announce that production on an 'Inferno Cop 2' anime is going forward. The account posted the following after retweeting the job listing on Monday:
Trigger is looking for a production runner! That must mean that Inferno Cop 2 is gonna start!!
トリガーが制作進行を募集しているぞ!いよいよインフェルノコップ2が始動するに違いない!!— インフェルノコップ2(仮) (@infernocop) April 21, 2014
制作進行 (seisaku shinkō or production runner) is a job position in the Japanese animation industry. Akitaro Daichi directed two Animation Runner Kuromi (Animation Seisaku Shinkō Kuromi-chan) original video anime projects about a woman in this position.
Inferno Cop's Twitter account had written in October that "Starting today, I will be known as Inferno Cop 2. It seems like a sequel was announced in a distant foreign land." However, the unofficial Twitter account for Trigger clarified, "We did present a joke pv video at an event that took place in Tokushima (we just came back). […] We may possibly do it after [Kill la Kill], who knows."
