First of five "linked world" videos released for Ikuhara's new anime
Revolutionary Girl Utena director Kunihiko Ikuhara is getting experimental again — this time by blending reality and anime.
His upcoming project with MAPPA, Sarazanmai, has just launched the first of what will eventually be five PVs. Referred to as a "linked world" video, it shows the series protagonist moving through real-world footage of Asakusa. Check it out:
Four more videos like this are due to be released over the next few weeks, each introducing a new character to the series.
Sarazanmai is produced by MAPPA (Yuri!!! on ICE, Zombie Land Saga) and will air as part of Fuji TV's Noitamina block starting next April.
