First PV for mixed-media project Hamatora


A manga, anime, and video game are in the works.

He's your first look at some actual animation for Hamatora. I've been out of the loop for a bit, so this is the first time it's crossing my vision, but it certainly seems interesting. Hamatora is a mixed-media project that will feature several different iterations of the story. The first will be in November, when Yuki Kodama and Yukinori Kitajima start the manga series. Next up will be the anime, a collab between Seiji Kishi and Touko Machida. Kodama and Kitajima will also be in on that, as lead artist and script writer, respectively, but best of all, Makoto Yoshimori will be composing for the series!

So now you can get your first look at the anime, which looks like some kind of neon-infused craziness. The story involved the titular detective agency tackling a case that revolves around Minimum Holders (superpowered people). The should be starting next year. Oddly enough, it's reported that the footage was animated just for the PV, so perhaps the show is further off than we think.
