They're certainly not afraid to give up a lot of looks at the fall anime adaptation of Ark Performance's sentient battleship sci-fi manga Arpeggio of Blue Steel. Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats! , Persona 4 The Animation) will direct the SANZIGEN (009 Re: Cyborg , Black Rock Shooter) produced series, with Makoto Uezu (Devil Survivor 2 The Animation, The Qwaser of Stigmata) penning the scripts.
The manga is set to be released in North America by Seven Seas.
