Girls'Work (Typemoon x ufotable original animation project)

Official Website has launched;
http://www.girlswork-animation.com/

Script/Storyboard: Hoshizora Meteor
Character Design: Takenashi Eri

Here is what I got from Takeuchi during F/Zero interview- it is rough, and localised:
-----
Q: What is the reason for making this anime project instead of game released that was promised?

A: As we are planning, we started to think that this work will be more suited for animation. Of course, we never considered animation to be simple project -- we actually thought it will have much higher standard--, animation was the first thing we thought of which is needed in order to show 100% of this work's charm. At that time we had to choose either making game that 'looks like' animation or make the entire medium as animation. After that, we thought that animation will be the ideal medium to face our works in direct way.
----

Long word short, this will be Typemoon animation original project.

It's called Girls'Work, not Girl's, haha. Weird titles ahoy!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this. I've never read anything from Meteor, but I know a couple of people who have and they got nothing but praise for the guy. The fact he himself also seems to think that the animated version of this is for the best fills me with hope we're getting another fantastic title here.

That said, I'm also happy with the change of plans since now it's almost guaranteed we're actually getting it. With T-M's recent track record of delaying stuff, god knows when they'd have Girls'Work ready for release.

Which reminds, two years ago when this was announced this description popped up:

Quote:
At a big city called ‘Shinjuku’, everyone was living their life through a filter of day dreaming, and they wandered between reality and miracles without noticing.

A story of what was called forth from the ‘heart’ of such a ‘city’ and the ‘city’ itself that dreamed of the city of flowers, Paris.
Take it with a grain of salt, however, having not heard about it in forever, god knows whether or not this is still related to the premise!

Judging from the title font, perhaps this will be lighter than Type-Moon's other works? I really wish there was more information on this. Patience will surely pay off.

Forest is a visual novel that Umineko is 'inspired' by. (Read: Umineko is a complete ripoff.)

I don't exactly know much about it, but I hear it's an absolute trip to read due to the layered, heavily metafictional narrative.

Was I the only one who lawled at this?

It may have come off as unintended, but making such a claim first and then saying that you have no personal knowledge to back if on comes off as extremely hilarious from a logical POV.

Yeah, I definitely constructed that post incorrectly.

What I mean to say is that I know Umineko stole a lot of elements from Forest. However, I know little about Forest itself other than those stolen elements.

I've looked forward to Girls' Work ever since I first saw it on TM's website but I never expected it to be an anime original project though. Not that I'm complaining, the promotional pic looks awesome.

Latest mention from Ufotable: "Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about Girls' Work, we are steadily making progress".

Man, is it just me, or is ufotable pretty much becoming Type-Moon's unofficial anime studio?

I hope it turns out to be a TV series.
Actually, was there any info what medium this will be in? Why is this placed under the Specials section?

No info about format yet. But TV series is most likely due to Hoshizora's scenario.

That's on TypeMoon, not ufoTABLE.
