posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine revealed on Friday that Tatsuhiko Ida (Blade, XBlade, Beauty but Beast) will launch a manga spinoff of the Re:CREATORS anime on Shogakukan's Sunday Webry site. The manga is titled Chikujōin-san Hashagisugi (Chikujōin-san is Having Way Too Much Fun). The manga will launch on Sunday.
The manga centers on the character Magane Chikujōin from the anime. In the anime's story, Chikujōin is an antagonist character summoned from a dark urban fantasy light novel series and anime. She has the power to make her lies real by telling the lie and having someone else deny it.
The anime premiered on April 8. The series streams exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in Japan and Amazon's Anime Strike in the United States. The anime will have a total of 22 main episodes, and three special programs.
The anime's official website describes the anime's 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.
