The announcement video streaming on the website reveals that Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Getbackers, Rurouni Kenshin TV series and OVAs, Mobile Suit Gundam UC) is directing the project at MAPPA (Kids on the Slope, Yuri!!! on Ice, In This Corner of the World). (Note: the video on the official website is region-locked to Japan.)


A new anime project titled 'Altair' franchise announced.

Studio MAPPA and A-1 Pictures seems to be part of the collaboration as well.

Lately / not Stark's fault but some of therse annoucements are so vague like what TYPE show / movie / OVA / Short /Season / # of episodes etc. Dont mind Staff / Cast / PV's bbut get more solid infro before puuting iy out to the News outlets

Again not STARK !! He's just a messenger.

Then these mystery annoucements / countdowns / IMO confusing / annoying.

Here's a Youtube video that is not region locked. Most likely will be taken down soon because that's Youtube nowadays...

Looks like some kind of adventure anime. I see buildings that resemble temples, citadels and etc. Politics and adventures??

The first post over at ANN speculates it is an adaptation of Shoukoku no Altair, which is set in fictional analog of 15th century Europe:

Makes a lot of sense. The architecture on show in the clip was very reminiscent of Turkey and other regions where European and Arabic culture melded. Also Altair was derived from Al Nesr Al Tair.

It is a region and historical period I'd like to see explored more. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was set in the roughly the same time period and regions.
