Nadesico/Bodacious Space Pirates' Tatsuo Sato Plans 2 New Projects
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Anime writer and director Tatsuo Sato teased two new upcoming projects — an adaptation and an original work — on Twitter on Friday. "I'm sure there'll be a lot more announcements coming as we head into April," Sato said. "This looks to be a giant wave of them."
On the adaptation, Sato commented, "Met with the author yesterday. It was the same thing with Mōretsu Pirates, but being told 'I'll leave it to you' gives me just as much encouragement as it does pressure. Just how much can we do? Just how far can we go?"
"In other news," Sato continued, "the original work is crawling along. I've got to hurry up and get it together."
Sato served as head writer and director for Bodacious Space Pirates, Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars, and most recently Lord Marksman and Vanadis. He also directed Martian Successor Nadesico, Stellvia, and the Ninja Scroll television series.
