Girls & Panzer's Mizushima, Anohana's Okada Make Mayoiga TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
Director Tsutomu Mizushima (Girls und Panzer, Shirobako, Prison School), series script supervisor Mari Okada (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, The Anthem of the Heart, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), and the anime studio Diomedea (KanColle) are collaborating on Mayoiga, an original television anime premiering next spring. The tagline of the project reads, "And so, we vanished."
The website describes the story:
30 young men and women who came together on a shady bus tour. The tour's destination: an illusive, possibly nonexistent village called Nanakimura. In Nanakimura, one can lead a utopian existence, free of the world's obstacles … or so it was rumored, like an urban legend.
"In despair over the real world ... wanting to escape the tedious daily life … wanting to restart your life from scratch …"
The bus headed deep into the mountains, carrying 30 people each harboring their own expectations and wounds in their hearts…
And so, the place these 30 arrived at, was an uninhabited village with the lingering faint scents of life, even though it was falling apart.
What is the truth of Nanakimura facing the 30? You can't miss even one episode!
Naomi Ide (KanColle) is designing the characters, and Mizushima is personally directing the sound at Studio Mausu. Masaru Yokoyama (The Anthem of the Heart, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) is composing the music at Pony Canyon.
