Canaan (428 The Animation)

I search the forum but no hits so here it is.

Creative force of TYPEMOON now is confirmed anime TV series, 428. It is supposedly a sequel to a famous game by Chunsoft, machi backed with money from SEGA. It is very surprising that it is announced that it will be produced as anime instead of a game.

Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi will be providing story writing and art design respectively. Few people from True Tears will be also in the staffing. PA Works will be responsible for this.

Slated for 2009 release.

Official site
My entry on this

Cheers.

The visual novel tells a present-day story about a detective, a young man, a virus researcher, a freelance writer, and a cat mascot character who are brought together by bizarre events with worldwide implications in the Tokyo neighborhood of Shibuya. Type-Moon is already producing a bonus anime scenario for the game. Screenplay writer Kinoko Nasu and original character designer Takashi Takeuchi of Fate/stay night and Tsukihime, Lunar Legend fame are involved in both 428 projects.

Sword of the Stranger director Masahiro Ando (not to be confused with the similarly named Sailor Moon animation director Masahiro Ando) is overseeing the animators at P.A. Works (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society, Darker than BLACK). Mari Okada (Vampire Knight, Toradora!) is overseeing the scripts, and Kanami Sekiguchi is designing the anime's characters. The visual novel itself will ship on December 4 for the Nintendo Wii console in Japan.

Posted last month around this time o_O In any case this series definitely sounds interesting. Not only is Sword of the Stranger's director managing/overseeing the animation production, which is being done by an amazing studio, but we also have a great artist who is heading up the character designer and also staffed on the True Tears project.

From the very little we can see of anime related mediums here, I'm thinking the character design looks pretty good. Wish I could see more tho o:

As far as the 428 game is concerned, it's coming out on the Wii this December 4th: http://www.gpara.com/comingsoon/428/080709/ (correct me if I'm wrong )

Random Curiosity also announces 428's anime adaptation and provides a link to 428's game site:

Capped/cropped from official 428 site, I plan on editing out the text later if I can find the time too


and I'm laughing my ass of at this motto or w/e you want to call it


I figure they mean "solitude," so in essence that's a great quote, but the tyop makes it pure win :>

Then again Tsukihime and F/SN wasn't as good as what they could of been, but KnK should be enough to see that it's possible to have a great TM adaption.

I don't see guy... you seen Kara no Kyoukai? If anything you're probably only seeing that due to the weird angle o_O Dirty blond just has a small rack :/ Character design is hot though, in my opinion, but I guess that's what you'd expect from Takeuchi Takashi

Now that I look at the short chick more closely she does seem to have more of a muscular look-ish chest xD I doubt (and seriously hope) that's not the case...

Is this actually a Type-Moon adaptation or is Type-Moon simply doing that "bonus anime scenario for the game." Also, although I can agree with you about F/Sn, I can't agree about Shingetsutan Tsukihime... one of the best animations ever. Kara no Kyoukai's quality and overall production is unsurpassable, and if P.A. Works can manage to keep the same level of quality with 428 then this would be pure awesomeness.

It's not a direct TM adaption, it's just that Nasu and Takeuchi are involved with the game and all. So it's more of me hoping it's TM related

But the anime might just be a direct adaption of the game, who knows.

Well I definitely see Type-Moon plastered all over those character designs as well as even the site design o_O Dark grungy/dirty background reminds me of Kara no Kyoukai.

Albeit it'd be best for this to air as soon as possible, to satisfy all our impatient appetites, I'm actually hoping it doesn't broadcast til mid/late 2009... that way I'll be able to get my hands on it while it's airing, opposed to after I come back from basic

I'm still a bit confused about the nature of the adaptation. While the anime credits Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi as original creators, their involvement with the game extends to just one of two bonus scenarios. Chunsoft's people wrote the main feature (which uses live action video with real actors), while Type-Moon contributed an extra.

Consequently, I wonder if the animation studio is crafting a series around Type-Moon's extra rather than the main game. I guess the other question might be if there's enough Type-Moon material to present, or if P.A. Works plans on incorporating many anime original scripts (Mari Okada has done a ton of original scripts lately, and she's a rising star in that area).

Well this is P.A. Works, remember what they did with True Tears? Had no relation whatsoever to the game of the same name. They could simply be crafting a nearly original animation production and are merely using elements/concepts of Chunsoft's game.

Like Cicido. I'm also in to this for Type-Moon's involvement. I LOVE Takeuchi's character designs (so much that I bought the Tsukihime Plus Period book). And don;t think it needs to be said how great Nasu's writing is.

So the murders in this take place in Shibuya? So along with Chaos;head. we are shown that Shibuya causes insanity?

Because of the scramble crossing it's famous for. Used to have to meet there with people.
