Naruto's Hayato Date directs adventure series about explorers on new continent

Shueisha announced on Sunday that Chinese manga creator Dainenbyō's Gunjō no Magmell (Magmell of the Sea Blue) manga is getting a television anime adaptation.

Dainenbyō drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement.

Hayato Date (Naruto, Naruto Shippūden, Saiyuki) is directing the series at studio Pierrot. Chūji Mikasano (Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Ghoul √A, Tokyo Ghoul:re) is overseeing the series scripts. Yasuharu Takanashi (Fairy Tail, Naruto Shippūden, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations) is composing the music.

The fantasy series takes place in a world where a new continent named Magmell suddenly appears in the ocean, and a new age of exploration begins. Explorers venture to the island to find previously unknown lifeforms and resources, but experience one disaster after another. The manga follows the mysterious young men who make a living as relief workers who aid the explorers.

Dainenbyō launched the manga on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in June 2015, and Shueisha published the 59th chapter on April 27. Shueisha published the manga's fourth volume in print on July 4.
