Masaaki Yuasa apparently likes to work in threes. After releasing three anime projects last year with Devilman Crybaby, Lu Over The Wall, and The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl, his studio Science Saru is producing three new anime projects.
The first project is a feature film called Kimi to, Nami nor Noretara, about a girl whose boyfriend turns into a spirit that can only exist underwater.
The second project is called Super Shiro, a spin-off of Crayon Shin-chan, geared towards children.
The third is an anime series based on Sumito Oowara’s manga, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! The series is about a group of girls trying to make their own anime– though from the trailer, it looks like high fantasy.
As a fan of Yuasa’s work, I’m glad to see he’s not slowing down or repeating himself. There are few creators that make quality content for different ages and in original art styles. I hope that Yuasa’s success will encourage more anime directors to do the same.
