A new TV anime series Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun (literally translated as Storm Cloud Restoration Big General) is set for April 2014. The robot and love story-mixed anime is animated by J.C.STAFF/A・C・G・T based on Kazuya Sasakura's original story. Takashi Watanabe (Slayers, Shakugan no Shana) serves as the director.
In the late Edo period, Japan had experienced an unprecedented crisis by Kurofune (Black Ships), the ships from foreign countries. But a giant robot called Onigami, which has existed since ancient time, dispelled the Kurofune ships and the exclusion of foreigners was accomplished. The story begins in Japan where Meiji restoration in 1868 didn't happen. The tagline says, "I can be the greatest man in the world, because I am a virgin!!"
