The official website for Re:Creators, the original television anime from Black Lagoon manga creator Rei Hiroe, opened on Monday with a teaser promotional video and visual:

Hiroe personally drew the visual, which also appears as a poster in the January 2017 issue of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine on Monday.

Hiroe is credited with providing the original concept and original character designs for the anime. Ei Aoki (Aldnoah.Zero, Fate/Zero) is directing the anime at his studio Troyca. Aoki and Hiroe are working together on series composition.

Shogakukan and Aniplex will debut the full first promotional video at Comiket 91 on December 29, and their booth will also distribute novelty goods.

Hiroe is best known for his Black Lagoon action manga, which tells the story of a four-man team of mercenaries who operate in Southeast Asia, smuggling goods with their World War II PT boat and performing odd jobs that often involve and end up in shootouts. Hiroe launched the manga in Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine in 2002. Shogakukan published the manga's 10th volume in May 2014. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America, and it released the 10th volume in April 2015. Hiroe will resume the manga next spring after a three-year hiatus.

Madhouse adapted the manga into two television anime series in 2006, and the Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail original video anime project in 2010. Geneon released both series on DVD in North America in 2007-2008, and Funimation re-released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2012, and again in 2015.
