Kazuhiro Furuhashi and MAPPA Join Forces for Mysterious New Project

Renowned director Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Rurouni Kenshin, Gundam UC) is teaming up with MAPPA (Yuri!!! on ICE) to bring us something epic come this March. What is it? We’re not quite sure.

This CM, along with a Twitter account and official website, opened recently to announce the new project. But little to no information is given on the nature of the upcoming anime, save for the names involved and a few shots of maps and castles. The site, however, does have a countdown on it with less than a week to go.




The site also reveals that there will be a Project Altair stage show at Anime Japan this year: March 25 from 6:30-7:10 PM on the Green Stage.


More information on the project will presumably be coming next weekend, when the countdown hits zero.
