At long last!! Sakurai Hikaru is going anime!!!!!!!
Nephren-Ka is shown on that preview art. Thus there is a possibility that this will be a title within the Steampunk series.

Script Writer: Sakurai Hikaru
Character Design: Ito Mami
Animation Director: Takeuchi Tetsuya
Planning: Satou Ikuo

Appears to be part of the greater setting of the Steampunk series.

That series largely deals with a Lovecraftian fairy tale theme


As for the actual plot of this show and how it ties in to other Steampunk titles, I am not too sure myself

I'm kind of hoping it'll be a completely new entry instead of one of the VN games.

The characters shown on the preview pictures haven't appeared in any of the vns yet, though I heard that one of them have been mentioned (I have only read Inganock and Sharnoth myself) so it most likely will be an original work.

I always thought we wouldn't get any anime of the steampunk series since the episodic nature of the stories and the heavy focus on the writing aren't exactly suited for shorter anime but I guess this is how she solved it.

That would be Nephren-Ka of the Kerneter.
One of Nyarlathotep's personification in Lovecraft mythos, and an established villain in the Steampunk series.

Though, the anime is going to place during the first century, which is way before the pre-World War 1 era that most of the Steampunk series stories took place.
Thus, this should be one of the works that functions to explain the grander backstory of the series like her other in progress work, the Colorless Ulthar.

You got my attention with the promise of Steampunk, but I really need a image of some sort (at least moreso than a couple of sketches) to start getting excited. Hopefully it won't be to long till a Key Visual appears.

Is Nephren then one of the Tick Tack Man's faces or a totally seperate entity? He's not one of the early forms of <Golden King> right?


Also, I hope A.Z.T.T's Miko makes an appearance here...

I'm reading through Sharnoth right now, and yeah although I entertained the thought, I never thought we'd get an anime, for the reasons you stated, the episodic nature of her stories, as well as heavy use of repetition, and rhythmic structure of her writing.

Base on the comments of the character designer Ito Mami, everything is still in a very early stage.
The sketches they showed so far are not final design either. So I guess we still have a long way to go.

Do we know yet if this is going to be set in Kadath or our world?
Since there's ancient Egypt stuff I'm assuming our world.

Most likely our world.
Nephren-Ka conducts his activities in Egypt.
Kerneter is also the Egyptian underworld.

Interesting. I haven't read any of her series (Partially because I don't have the time and partially because I heard the translations weren't too good. Maybe I'll read Gathukun when it comes out), but I have seen all its fantastic art.

Let's hope its better than Hoshizora Meteor's attempt at anime.

AKIRA's art was the reason I picked up the WAB series in the first place. It's unfortunate she's(?) not doing the character designs for the upcoming anime, but the sketches we've been shown do look nice.

I disagree, I really liked Zvezda. I thought it was whimsical and fun with some nice underlying layers, but to each his own. But now that I know Hoshizora Meteor wrote Forest I should probably go play that as well. I kind of skipped over it because I didn't care for the art.

Argh~

...Oh well, I guess I could use the time to check out her other works and get a bit of feel her writing in general.

Then in this case Ulthar may be occuring simultaneously but in Kadath....


Anyway, is Nephren-Ka still active in the 1900s?

Yes, he is. In the post Gakthun time, the 12 Apostles under him is taking action for something. (But world guide 2 got delayed, so we have to wait to find out what they are up to).
WIC headquarter in Rome also had received a message from their agent saying to watch out for Nephren-Ka.

But we are starting to deviate from the anime topic. We should move rest of the discussion to the game thread.
