Toei Streams Trailers for Anime by Fictional Directors from Mizuki Tsujimura's Anime Supremacy Novel

posted on by Alex Mateo
Soundback: Kanade no Ishi, Unmei Sensen Liddell-light anime

Toei began streaming two trailers for two anime that are in the universe of Mizuki Tsujimura's Anime Supremacy (Haken Anime!) novel. Both anime are scheduled for a 2022 release. The first trailer is for the Soundback: Kanade no Ishi robot anime, which is the directorial debut for Hitomi Saito, a character in the novel:

The second trailer previews the Unmei Sensen Liddell-light anime directed by the novel character Chiharu Ohji, who previously directed the novel's in-universe anime Hikari no Yosuga.

Magazine House published Tsujimura's Anime Supremacy novel with illustrations by CLAMP in August 2014.

Vertical released the novel in September 2017.

The novel follows people in the anime industry who are working on two series that will air in the same cours (quarter of the year): one is a legendary director's anime that is nine years in the making, and the other is an anime from a promising new director. An animator who is the topic of conversation online and a government worker on a sightseeing trip get involved with these projects.
