Persona 4's Seiji Kishi to direct original anime at Studio Gokumi

A teaser website for an original anime series titled Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru (Yūna Yūki is a Hero) opened on Thursday introducing the anime's main staff. The series will air on MBS' "Animeism" block in starting in October.

The staff includes:

The story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yūna Yūki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she's also a member of the "Hero Club," where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called "Vertex."

The anime is part of the "Takahiro IV Project" which includes four titles written by Takahiro during 2014. The first three titles are the PC game Shōjo-tachi wa Kōya o Mezasu, the anime adaptation of Takahiro's Akame ga KILL! manga, and the novel series Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru. Takahiro is credited with the original idea behind the PC game, but Romeo Tanaka (Humanity Has Declined) is writing the scenario. The novel series is serialized in Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Magazine, and illustrator kotamaru is providing the art for the online web comic adaptation.
