Rejoice: LeSean Thomas and Crunchyroll team up for Children of Ether


This is going to be sweet

Whenever I hear about a bunch of cool groups collaborating on a production, I tend to rejoice over this wonderful news. Speaking of team-up projects, Crunchyroll revealed at New York Comic-Con '16 on Oct. 6 that they're working with LeSean Thomas to create Children of Ether.

LeSean Thomas' upcoming title is set in a dystopian city, and it revolves around the Rhonda, a woman with mysterious powers that's running from an attacker. Also, this happened after her dad died. During her struggle, she'll meet a couple orphans and people that will guide her through the metropolis. 

So far, the whole thing looks like it'll be an interesting urban fantasy animation. Perhaps the best part about it is the people that are helping Thomas out since we have Character Designer Hiroshi Shimizu (Michiko & Hatchin's Character Design, FLCL's Key Animation), Storyboard Director Shingo Natsume (One Punch Man's Director, Space Dandy's Storyboards for its opening, episode 1 and 13), Animation Director Yuichi Takahashi (Gatchaman Crowds and Insight's Chief Animation Director) and Animator Mitsuo Iso (Char's Counterattack and Cowboy Bebop: The Movie's Key Animation) at the helm. On top of that, Yapiko Animation (Garo: Divine Flame's Key Animation) is handling the animation production, Musician Mr Hudson is doing the project's soundtrack and Ronald Wimberly (Black Dynamite's Character Designer) is behind of Ether's concept art.

With LeSean Thomas directing the whole thing, it looks like we're in for a phenomenal treat. Since I love the idea of there being more world animation projects in the works, I can't wait to see how this turns out. Seeing that it's currently in production, we might get to hear more about it sooner than expected.

On that note, is anyone looking forward to LeSean Thomas' latest creation?
