Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun, a new Anime series premiering in April 2014, was announced recently.
The Anime is supposed to be an action romance set in Japan, in a parallel world, where the Meiji Restoration never took place.
The story is as follows:
“In the late Edo period, Japan faced an unprecedented crisis with the arrival of black ships from overseas. However, Japan drove away the black ships thanks to Onigami, giant robots that have existed in Japan since the ancient times. The country has remained in self-imposed seclusion from foreigners ever since. The story begins in this Japan that never experienced the Meiji Restoration.”
Project-D is being credited with the original story, while Hiroya Iijima is adapting Shunya Yamashita’s original character designs, Makoto Ishiwata is in charge of mecha designs, and Dai Sato of Eureka Seven fame is in charge of scripting the series.
Nippon Columbia is in charge of the music production, while Satoshi Motoyama is in charge of directing the sound. Chikako Shibata is in charge of art, while Michiyo Iriomote is the color key artist.
