64-year-old acclaimed manga artist/illustrator Hisashi Eguchi, best known for his baseball comedy manga Susume!! Pirates and transgender-themed Stop!! Hibari-kun! in the early 1980s, announced on his official Twitter today that he will work on his first character designs for a TV anime series in 17 years.


Among anime fans, he is also known for his character design works for Hiroyuki Kitakubo's 1991 anime film Roujin-Z, Satoshi Kon's 1997 film Perfect Blue, and the 2003-2004 TV anime series Uninhabited Planet Survive!

"Since Roujin-Z in 1991, Perfect Blue in 1997, and Uninhabited Planet Survive! in 2003, I will be working on character designs for a serial TV anime for the first time in 17 years. It is a sci-fi series about a class of junior high school students. No title has been decided! (Still there!) A whole one class..., how many people do I have to draw--!! (Again there!)"
