Ghost Hound Announced

It is not everyday that the announcement of a coming anime series gets me this excited, but this one certainly does. Due out in the fall is Production IG’ (yes the company that did the anime bit in Kill Bill) 20th Anniversary Project and it will be headed up by none other than Shirow Masamune, the creator of Ghost in the Shell, who will be writing scripts. They also have Ryutaro Nakamura (Serial Experiments Lain, Kino’ Journey), scriptwriter Chiaki Konada (Serial Experiments Lain, Big O), and character designer Mariko Oka (Jing: King of Bandits) working on the series that will be airing on Japanese TV station WOWOW. These are some heavyweights of the industry so naturally this makes this a definite title to get excited about.
