posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The June issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine is revealing on Friday that Yūki Kumagai's Re:Creators spinoff manga Re:Creators One More! will debut in the next issue on June 12. The series will focus on a certain female character and feature a different point of view than the original anime (seen right). Shogakukan's Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine announced the spinoff manga in April.
Kumagai's Shūmatsu Fūki Iinkai manga ran in Monthly Shonen Sunday from 2013 to 2015. Shogakukan released the fourth and final compiled book volume in 2015.
Daiki Kase (Man-ken.) launched a separate manga adaptation of Re:Creators in the March issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday Gene-X magazine, which shipped on February 18. Unlike the upcoming manga in Monthly Shōnen Sunday, Kase's manga directly adapts the original anime.
The anime will have a total of 22 main episodes, and three special programs. The first special program, titled "Enter the World of Re:Creators," aired on April 1. The anime itself premiered on Tokyo MX, BS11, Tochigi TV, and Gunma TV at 11:30 p.m. on April 8. The series also airs on ABC Asahi Broadcasting, TV Aichi, and AT-X. The anime streams exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in Japan and Amazon's Anime Strike in the United States.
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.
