Arabian Nights anime slated for October
It's being shared by Shonen Sunday's Youtube channel a little late. It's a little light on new material, but there's still a nice bit of hyping done in the Comiket 82 promo for the Arabian Nights anime based on Shinobu Ohtaka's (Sumomomo, Momomo) Magi - Labyrinth of Magic.
Koji Masunari (Read or Die, Kamichu!, Welcome to the Space Show) will be directing the A-1 Pictures' (Blue Exorcist, Anohana, [email protected], and Space Brothers) production, with Code Geass/My-Hime's Hiroyuki Yoshino (plus Accel World and Guilty Crown more recently) doing series composition writing.
Toshifumi Akai (And Yet the Town Moves opening, Birdy the Mighty Decode) is the character designer/animation director, while veteran Takashi Hashimoto (Project A-ko, Macross Plus) is handling the effects. Ayu Kawamoto (No. 6, Durarara!!) is on art director duties.
