Saber Marionette J Last Story Video Anime Green-Lit for 2016

posted on by Egan Loo
AIC to produce 1st Saber Marionette J anime in over 17 years

The anime studio AIC announced on Monday that production on a new original video anime based on Satoru Akahori's Saber Marionette J novel has been green-lit. The studio plans to unveil the project in 2016.

The main Saber Marionette J series is set in a world with no women, only female androids that can perform limited human interaction, called Marionettes. One day, a boy named Otaru Mamiya discovers a "Saber" model Marionette called Lime, equipped with a special chip that grants her emotions.

AIC announced in July that it licensed the rights to the Saber Marionette work by Hiroshi Negishi and Satoru Akahori, and that a Saber "re:anime project" was launching.

The last project in the Saber Marionette action comedy franchise, Saber Marionette J to X, was a 26-episode television anime series released in 1998, over 17 years ago. The franchise encompasses two original video anime series, two television anime series, two manga series released between 1995 and 1999, and spinoffs in other media.
