This year's February issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday Gene-X announced on Thursday that the upcoming Re:CREATORS original television anime project will get a manga adaptation in the magazine beginning this spring. Daiki Kase (Man-ken.) is drawing the series.
The anime will premiere in April.
The show's site describes the story:
Humans have created many stories. Joy, sadness, anger, deep emotion. Stories shake our emotions, and fascinate us. However, these are only the thoughts of bystanders. But what if the characters in the story have "intentions"? To them, are we god-like existences for bringing their story into the world? Our world is changed. Mete out punishment upon the realm of the gods. In Re:CREATORS, everyone becomes a Creator.
Black Lagoon manga creator Rei 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. Makoto Katō (Beautiful Bones -Sakurako's Investigation- director) is serving as assistant director, and Ryuichi Makino (Girls Bravo, Wandering Son) is adapting Hiroe's character designs for animation. Makino is also the chief animation director alongside Jun Nakai (GATE, Mardock Scramble film trilogy). I-IV (Aldnoah.Zero) is the mechanical designer. Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Blue Exorcist) is composing the music.
