Revisions Anime Gets Manga, Novel Adaptations
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for Fuji TV and Shirogumi's Revisions original television anime revealed on Tuesday that the series will get manga and novel adaptations. The manga will launch in the January 2019 issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine on November 26, and Hayakawa Publishing will release the first novel in December.
Kuro (Clockwork Planet manga) is drawing the manga (seen above), and Jinroku Myōgaya (Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness game's scenario) is providing the story.
Kou Kimura (Myōgaya's real name; Petopeto-san) is writing the novel series, which is planned to have three volumes. In addition, Nozomi Ōmori (Gokai Suru Kado First Contact SF Kessakusen) will write a "time science-fiction anthology."
The anime will premiere in Japan on Fuji TV's "+Ultra" programming block in January. Netflix will exclusively stream the series worldwide.
The anime's official website describes the story:
This is a prophecy.
Someday, the five of you will be put into terrible danger.
And when that happens, you're the only one who can protect everyone.
Daisuke Dojima, a 2nd-year student in high school who was kidnapped when he was younger, experiences a strange phenomenon along with his friends Gai, Lu, Marimari, and Keisaku: “Shibuya Adrift”.
The center of the city of Shibuya is transported more than 300 years in the future. The people sent with it find nothing there but vast wastelands and forests, dotted with ruins… and hostile beings called “Revisions” that control massive mechanical monsters.
As the monsters tear through Shibuya, someone appears to save the people: a girl with the same name, “Milo”, as the one who helped Daisuke when he was kidnapped, who looks identical to her as well.
She gives Daisuke and his friends weapons called “String Puppets” that they can pilot, and tells them to protect Shibuya.
Daisuke has spent his whole life believing in the prophecy that Milo gave him when he was kidnapped, and he's overjoyed that the time has come at last and at the power he's gained. But the kidnapping incident tore the 5 childhood friends apart.
An isolated city. An unknown enemy. An uncertain past and a prophecy of the future. The children fight the “future” to bring back the “present”.
No matter what, they're going home...
Goro Taniguchi (Code Geass, Active Raid, ID-0, Planetes) is directing the series at studio Shirogumi (Etotama, Antique Bakery, Nyanbo!). S.F.S is credited with the original work. Sunao Chikaoka (Abnormal Physiology Seminar, blossom, Kyo no Gononi) is designing the original character designs, and Jun Shirai (key animator for Blood-C, Ghost in the Shell: Arise) is adapting those designs for CG. Makoto Fukami (Berserk 2016 and 2017, Psycho-Pass) and Taichi Hashimoto (producer for Rosario + Vampire Capu2, Speed Grapher) are handling the series composition.
