The "Executive Director Shinji Higuchi's Latest Project Unveiling" event at Tokyo Comic Conn announced on Sunday that Higuchi is overseeing the 2018 original television anime Hisoneto Masotan for Warner Brothers. Mari Okada (The Anthem of the Heart, anohana) is writing the anime, and Hiroshi Kobayashi (Kiznaiver) is directing. Masahiko Minami, the president of the anime studio BONES (Eureka Seven, Mob Psycho 100), confirmed that his studio is producing the anime. Higuchi noted that he, BONES, and Okada created the original story concept together, and he added that he always wanted to make an original television anime.


The tagline of the anime is, "You and I will fly the skies." The anime will tell "the heartwarming story of dragons tamed by Air Self-Defence Force and their rookie pilots filled with love, laughter and tears."

Well that sounds like a recipe for success right there. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm hyped for this big time now.

So Bones is using something similar to what they did with Mob Psycho for the animation, though with nothing too over-the-top. While Mari Okada has done great stuff, she has been in a slump lately.
