Gurren Lagann/Kill la Kill's Nakashima to Co-Write 2nd Concrete Revolutio Series

Kazuki Nakashima joins Gen Urobuchi, Masaki Tsuji; announcement video posted

The official website for the Concrete Revolutio confirmed that Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, live-action Terraformars) is joining Gen Urobuchi and Masaki Tsuji on writing scripts for the new Concrete Revolutio series. The website also posted the video that announced that the new series will premiere in April.

The first series premiered in Japan on October 4. Anime Consortium Japan is co-producing the anime, and it is also streaming the anime on Daisuki as the anime airs in Japan. Funimation Entertainment is also streaming the anime.

Funimation describes the story:

What if superhumans were real? Even better, what if every fabled superhuman existed at the same time, in the same place? Titans from outer space, life forms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations. In another Japan, it's not just a question of “what if”—it's a reality. Some of the superhumans choose to keep their identities a secret, while others bask in their superhuman fame. Jiro Hitoyoshi, member of the Superhuman Bureau, keeps track of their doings.

The anime reunites the main staff from Fullmetal Alchemist. Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Un-Go, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Hanamaru Kindergarten) is directing the series at BONES, and Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Un-Go, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, Martian Successor Nadesico) is in charge of series composition. Masafumi Mima (Attack on Titan, Paprika) is serving as sound director.
