For me, it was/is Despera. More or less made by the same staff who made Serial Experiments Lain, the project looked cool as fuck, with a nice premise. The character resembles Lain, it's got ABe's fire art style, and it was looking to be released at some point until the director, Ryūtarō Nakamura sadly passed away. Now, the anime is stuck in limbo, 2-3ish years ago Yoshitoshi ABe said the anime was gonna be resurrected with a new director seemingly at the helm, but since then there has been NO news on Despera. So, the more or less spiritual successor to my 3rd favorite anime of all time seems like it'll never come out.

So, any of you have an example of an anime you were wicked hyped for, only to never hear anything from it again, trapped in development hell forever?



THIS is Despera ^. God this woulda been so good. Fingers crossed on it miraculously making it out somehow, but chances are slim.

Literally popped in to say Despera.

There's also Dream Machine but I'm conflicted over whether I'd want to see it finished without Satoshi Kon.

Despera was exactly what I thought of the instant I saw the title of this thread. I was disappointed when I first heard about it earlier this year and found out that the director died, putting the anime on hold until further notice.

Other than that I can't think of anything. 2 years ago I would've said Attack on Titan since its production was pushed back but now we already have a new season coming out in a couple of months. There are a lot of anime that I'll never see the continuations for, not because of delayed production but because the studios or production committees don't want to make more.

I honestly never expected the LotGH reboot to see the light of day but I guess it will, at least for a season or two.

I was waiting for Satoshi Kon's movie Dreaming Machine.

Then he passed away.

No surprise Dream Machine is like the most mentioned thing here. It's an absolute tragedy, both Kon's sickness and his unfinished final project. All of his works operate on a very deep level.

For me, it would be "The God of High School". The first time I saw this trailer, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1HYX_yRgrg, I was so ecstatic that there would be an adaptation. Unfortunately, the trailer was only for promotional purposes for the webtoon. That said, the trailer was fantastic (albeit containing spoilers for the uninitiated):

I was pretty sure that the director Masayuki Kojima said there was going to be a Season 2

Either way Black Bullet is amazing!
