Room 208

Elaborate Burn

noitaminA announced their upcoming lineup just a few hours ago, and boy, am I excited. This spring’s shows Ping-Pong (directed by Masaaki Yuasa of Tatami Galaxy renown) and Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin were already announced some months ago; joining them in the summer will be Zankyou no Terror, a show about a terrorist attack in Tokyo. Direction will be by Shinichirou Watanabe, with music by Yoko Kanno, pairing up again after Kids on the Slope. The fall will see the long-awaited sequel to Psycho-Pass, leading into a feature film in the winter, as well as an adaptation of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, which received Best Shounen at the Kodansha Manga Awards last year. 2015 will open with an anime version of the Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata light novel series, along with adaptations of Project Itoh’s multi-award-winning science fiction novels Genocidal Organ and Harmony.

There’s a lot to look forward to here. And they say noitaminA is dead.
