The anime adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s original manga series is the most anticipated new anime of the year overall, and while this has already led to a lot of pressure, Studio MAPPA is also approaching the project in a much different way than expected.

When asked what to expect from director Ryo Nakayama, Otsuka explained that the director was chosen not only because he was young and enthusiastic, but because his point of view also aligns with the world’s vision of original series creator Tatsuki Fujimoto to do the best justice for the series. Referring specifically to the latest trailer, Otsuka noted that Nakayama’s work can be seen through its originality in terms of how it captures the realistic, almost realism of the original Fujimoto movie. The director even went so far as to directly influence casting choices.

Otsuka and Kimura explained that Nakayama helped set the cast and wanted the characters to reflect the energy of the leads, and emphasize overall sound production. Given that the team also promised that there would be no shortage of violence and bloodshed seen from the original series, and given the response, it seems fans won’t have to worry about the future of the anime.
