The mastermind director and creator behind Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Shinichiro Watanabe, teased us at MadFest Melbourne last year with a hint that he was working on a brand new series.
Yesterday, Fuji TV announced that the new original anime from Watanabe, Carol & Tuesday, will be released in April 2019. Anime studio BONES has joined Watanabe on this new project, along with Aya Watanabe joining as scriptwriter, and Eisaku Kubonouchui as the new series character designer. FlyingDog will be steering the new series music production.
Along with the announcement from Fuji TV, a small, yet beautiful, teaser was also released.
The text in the video reads, ” The two met and created a song. No one knew what a miracle it would bring.”
The production is also opening auditions for singers to dub the main characters, Carol and Tuesday, to applicants worldwide.Auditions are open until April the 25th, and can be found via the anime’s official website.
It’s always exciting to see that Watanabe is keeping the theme of music, something that he has a very strong love for, in his new work!
We can’t wait for April 2019!
