Mysterious site opens up with Utena and Penguindrum director connection

Amidst the hustle and chaos of Comiket this weekend, a new site has opened up teasing the next project of Kunihiko Ikuhara, the famed director of the Utena anime adaptation as well as the director of sleeper hit Mawaru Penguindrum, which was recently licensed for release in the UK by KAZE Entertainment
