Fuji TV programming block noitamina announced during its "noitamina Announcement Conference 2015" that an anime adaptation of Project Itoh's Shisha no Teikoku (The Empire of Corpses) novel has been green-lit for a 2015 premiere.


By Wit Studio
Director: Ryoutarou Makihara

Premise/Synopsis:

The story of The Empire of Corpses takes place in 19th century Europe, and revolves around John Watson. He is scouted by the government to become a secret agent- However, Watson lives in a world where "Frankensteins"- human corpses that are re-purposed with a false soul in order to use them as laborers- are used to improve industrial development.

Intriguing. This is the first I have heard of this. Considering that Studio Wit did AOT (in all of its steampunkiness), it makes sense that they would be picked for this.

So here is a Noitamina show done by the same studio that does Attack on Titan. Should be interesting.

Interesting. Though I never was interested in Attack on Titan. I'll just wait and see.

So Ciel and Sebastian are living in a world where corpses do labor? Interesting. And it's by the studio that did AoT too. Sounds good. And noitamina. Very good... Funimation's going to take this, won't they?

Looks interesting.
Though it does sort of trigger my 'Frankenstein is the human scientist, not the monster' pet peeve.
