Ooh, project regarding 'Despera' now resumes with new info! The series is a planned anime that took a hiatus. For those who are interested in the synopsis, I found this on wiki and ANN:


The story centers around Ain, a 14-year-old irl who builds devices despite the lack of the scientific background required for them. The science-fiction story is set in Japan's Taishō gera in 1922 — one year before the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake in the Tokyo area.



As the new info also reveals with a sketching video:

Apparently, the anime project is getting a new director. Hopefully this will debut for the year!

That comes as a huge surprise to me, a pleasant one though. I'd already given up on Despera a year or two ago. Here's hoping that the ball will finally get rolling now.

This won't be the same without Ryutaro Nakamura, but thank goodness we might actually get to see it.

Cause it is.

This is a show he worked on back in 2009, Ryutaro Nakamura was going to direct (Serial Experiments Lain, Kino's Journey). But the project was stalled when Nakamura was hospitalized with cancer, and then he passed away in 2013.
