posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kyoto Animation announced on Saturday that it is making a new anime project based on its mascot character Baja. The new animation will be included in a Blu-ray Disc that the studio is offering to those who pre-order tickets for its upcoming "We're Here Now!!: It's the First Festival in Two Years" fan event with Animation DO. It will also offer the Blu-ray Disc for sale separately at a later date. The announcement did not mention the format or length of the anime.
The event will take place over separate weekends. The first event is titled "Presenting! Various Aspects of KyoAni & Do" and is set for November 3-4 at Miyakomesse in Kyoto. The next event is "Sound! From Kyoto to the World" and is set for November 9-10 at ROHM Theater Kyoto.
Kyoto Animation previously produced the "Baja no Studio" (Baja's Studio) anime project (seen below) for the character. As with the new project, it was included on a Blu-ray Disc bundled with tickets to Kyoto Animation and Animation DO's fan event in 2017.
In addition to the Blu-ray Disc, the pre-order tickets will also include a commentary book with staff commentary on Kyoto Animation and Animation DO's works from 2017 to 2019, a work book with original illustrations and select production materials from works from 2017 to 2019, and a booklet of production materials for the Baja anime.
