Craftar anime commemorates WOWOW channel's 30th anniversary

The Japanese premium channel WOWOW announced on Tuesday that anime director Kenji Kamiyama's new anime feature at Craftar will run on WOWOW and stream next January under the title Eien no 831 (The Eternal 831). The anime commemorates the network's 30th anniversary, which occured in April 2021.

The tagline on the teaser visual above reads, "Who restarted time when it stopped?"

Kamiyama is directing and writing the anime, and he said last November that the anime is a "socially conscious youth crime adventure story."

Kamiyama is perhaps best known for directing the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East, and Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit anime. He has also directed 009 Re:Cyborg, Napping Princess, and most recently, he co-directed the 2019 Ultraman anime and the Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 anime alongside Shinji Aramaki. Netflix released the latter two anime worldwide.

Kamiyama is also co-directing this fall's Blade Runner: Black Lotus anime series with Aramaki. He is directing The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim prequel feature film.
