Sarazanmai: anime reveals character designs



The official website of Sarazanmai, the next television anime by director Kunihiko Ikuhara (Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum), has revealed an image with two characters. Reo and Mabu are a couple of policemen who are key to the story, with Migi taking charge of its design.

The same website announces that on the pages of Rutile de Gentosha magazine, a spinoff manga titled Reo to Mabu will be launched on May 22: Futari wa Sarazanmai. The magazine is published in the odd months, but the sister website Rutile Sweet will also publish the manga in the even months. Misaki Saito will be in charge of drawing the work, from which we can see a first image about these lines, his story being something linked to the anime although dedicated to the daily lives of the characters.

The series will debut in 2019 and will be produced by MAPPA and Lapin Track (Yurikuma Arashi).

For example, if everything passes by, the world would become empty.
Am I a lie, is the world a lie, are we a lie?
Cross that river. Because you will never be able to return.
I'll say something true.
You are connected, but alone.
We are connected.
But that's unpleasant.
But that's wanted.
For example, even if everything passes by and the world becomes empty... I want to protect this bond.
Who is the one with a strong desire?
Don't let it go, desire is your life.
