Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (BONES)



http://tokyo-m8.com/

New TV anime series from BONES announced. It's a story about two siblings and a single mother trying to survive together after a massive earthquake hits Tokyo during the Summer vacation changing everyone's lives forever.

The production is by BONES and Kinema Citrus (who are working on the animation production of the E7 movie), and the director is Masaki Tachibana. The series will start in July on FujiTV on the Noitamana time slot.

Oh, is this original or is it based on someone's work?

Well, the character designs are really different from BONES' other work. Pretty charming in its own way.

So far I'm sold. Music was great.

OK... this actually sounds and looks "out of the ordinary"... one of my many eyes put on it.

I think this will probably be similar to Chiko, in that the character designs, planning etc, is done by Bones itself and then the animation will be done with Cinema Citrus (with maybe Bones doing the OP and ED themselves)

Cinema Citrus. A very new animation studio I believe that just recently formed. They began by working with Bones on the E7 movie, and Bones helped them with recruitment about a year ago.

They've done production support on a few episodes here and there in the past year too, like on Ryoko's Case Files.

There was some misunderstanding that they were actually a new Bones studio that was founded to work on E7 (like Gainax and Khara), but its pretty obvious its a seperate studio, though obviously with some sort of connection to Bones I would guess, as they helped them with recruiting and have been working with them since...

I doubt it will be nearly as dark and gritty as Dragon Head, but it looks interesting to say the least.

Oho, now this interests me. Been a while since I've indulged in a series that isn't mecha or overdramatic romance... ^^;

This really does look interesting, both in a visual and thematic sense.

Actually, studio Dogakobo ( Ryoko's Case Files) also shared the recruit announcement on its webpage, maybe there another connection here ?
Kinema Citrus has also is own show on the plate like Hige Piyo comming on april :

BONES was helping with recruitment because they needed to recruit staff to facilitate their production of the animation for the E7 movie. Doga Kobo was helping with recruitment because they needed to recruit staff to facilitate their production of the animation for 1 or 2 episodes of Ryoko Case Files. I think the connection is simply that they're a small new upstart studio, and with no website or portfolio of their own, they rely on the established studios to help them get off their feet. It's a small industry and I'm sure everyone involved have probably worked with each other in the past before. Not too surprising imo.

The real question is *who* Kinema Citrus really is in terms of staff. We don't have any idea at the moment but maybe it'll become more apparent when the animation staff credits show up for the E7 movie and for Tokyo M8 in a few months.

Awesome. Not the usual harem moe shit. There is still some hope left for anime.

The design is certainly very reminicent of Kamichu, with the round faces and clean line-art.

So if Kinema Citrus is involved with this, I'm assuming BONES' B Studio should still be working on a seperate project? I'm really, really impressed with how BONES are coping with these projects on such a large scale too.
