Studio Trigger and A-1 Pictures opened an official website for their new original science-fiction television anime DARLING in the FRANKXX on Thursday. The website began streaming the anime's first trailer and revealed a key visual and the main staff. (Note: The linked video on the website is region-locked to Japan.)

Atsushi Nishigori (The IDOLM@STER, character designer for Gurren Lagann) is directing the series, and Toshifumi Akai (chief animation director for Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Sound of the Sky) is assistant director. Nishigori and Naotaka Hayashi (director for Girl Friend BETA, Morita-san wa Mukuchi) are in charge of series composition. Masayoshi Tanaka (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Highschool of the Dead) is designing the characters and is chief animation director. Shigeto Koyama (Michiko & Hatchin, Ancien and the Magic Tablet) is providing the mechanical designs. Hiroyuki Imaishi (director of Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill) is supervising the action.

Studio Trigger announced the anime at its Anime Expo panel on Sunday. A-1 Pictures' Hiroyuki Shimizu is involved with the project and appeared on stage during the panel.

Studio Trigger also announced Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad Gridman, a collaboration with Tsuburaya Productions (Ultraman franchise); and Promare, an original work in collaboration with XFlag.
