Original Anime Project “Prism Nana” by SHAFT
Yes! It’s just a few days ago that I discovered the news about a light novel “Hentai Ouji to Warawaranai Neko” will become an anime where the light novel is illustrated by Kantoku. Now another good news popped up, which is SHAFT, the studio behind Madoka Magica is making another original mahou shoujo anime named “Prism Nana” with Kantoku doing the character design. Take note that by ‘original’ here it means this is not an adaptation from any existing source material.
I have nothing against this, in fact I welcome it because I have always wished to see more Kantoku’s works in anime form. I might have a problem with SHAFT in the past, mainly because I don’t like their animation style, however with good character design and story, like what they did with Madoka Magica, I would easily forget that. Not much is known about this anime project so far and they will only announce it in the upcoming Comiket 82 but I hope Urobuchi will write for this show too.
